Activation Skin Rejuvenation Package (Offered exclusively at Activation Clinic):
The Activation Skin Rejuvenation Package is a special combination of three safe, minimally-invasive and clinically validated treatment therapies developed by Dr. Patrick Cho, MD, which work together to optimize the health, evenness, elasticity and overall appearance of your skin. It consists of:
Step1 Microneedling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy) with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) stimulates collagen, elastin, and neovascularization
Step 2 Red Light Therapy (also known as Cold Laser or Low Level Laser Therapy - LLLT) assists in production of collagen and stimulates the new, healthy skin cell growth
Step 3 Nrf2 Activation lowers oxidative stress of the epidermal skin layers, provides protection against environmental assaults and supports the natural repair of and rejuvenation of skin cells.
Step 1 Microneedling with PRP
Microneedling with PRP (platelet rich plasma), also known as Collagen Induction Therapy is ideal for the treatment of acne scars, surgical scars, stretch marks, wrinkles and fine lines, hyperpigmentation, lax skin, sun damaged, large pores, and uneven skin texture. It can be performed either on the face or body, and is suitable for all skin types and colors.
How Microneedling with PRP Works
This therapy is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment with quick recovery time, and is designed to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production. The treatment actually involves the use of two procedures, micro-needling and PRP (platelet rich plasma) done consecutively.
The first procedure is called Microneedling. A small hand held, automatic device that contains tiny micro-needles is passed over the skin creating tiny micro-wounds, or channels, on the skin. During the body’s natural wound- healing process of these channels, collagen and elastin are automatically produced.
At Activation Clinic, your safety is our priority. We use SkinPen®, the first and ONLY device FDA-approved for microneedling which is clinically proven to be safe and effective.
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
The second procedure is called PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma). Platelet Rich Plasma is produced from an individual’s own blood. After a blood sample is obtained from a patient, the blood is put into a centrifuge, which is a tool that separates the PRP from the blood. The blood is spun for approximately 15 minutes.
PRP contains highly concentrated amounts of natural growth factors and other cytokines that promote the regeneration process of soft tissues. The PRP is applied directly to the channels that were created from the micro-needling to further stimulate the natural healing process and creation of collagen.
After the treatment, your skin will be slightly pink and feel slightly sunburned. For most people, your skin will completely recover in 24-72 hours. Your body’s collagen production usually takes about 4-8 weeks, so you will continue to see improvements over this time.
How Red Light Therapy Works
Red Light Therapy is 100% natural, chemical-free and drug-free medium to combat signs of aging. The natural red light used in the LED lamp penetrates the skin to activate cellular activity.
Red light therapy penetrates different levels of the skin to excite cellular activity and increase blood supply to the skin's surface. Increased blood flow to the area means more nutrients and oxygen to nourish the skin cells. This also leads to the production of fibroblasts and collagen that aids in the correction and prevention of certain skin issues.
