microneedling skin on face using Exceed pen

At Oregon Regenerative Medicine we are dedicated to our patients’ health from the inside out…. AND the outside in!

As the body’s largest organ, skin performs a series of key functions resulting from the multiple chemical and physical reactions that take place within it. Skin is composed of tissue that grows, differentiates, and renews itself constantly.

I have heard the human body referred to as “a suitcase full of cells and bacteria.” Think of our bodies as that suitcase. We carefully pack everything inside, zip it up, and off we go. Our belongings are safe inside.

Our skin is like the outside layer of that suitcase. It is a barrier protecting our body from external elements, injury, and oxidation. It maintains our body temperature, regulates moisture loss, and actively plays a role in our immune system, protecting us from disease.

Remember when that suitcase was brand new? Now fast-forward a couple of years and see the well-traveled version. It’s a bit beat up, has small scratches and tears, and non-working or lost pieces. Similarly, the same thing happens to our Skin as time goes by.

We lose 1% of our collagen every day after age 20.

A medically backed and proven way to combat that Collagen loss is our Collagen Induction Therapy using Exceed Microneedling with PRP/PRF.

Loss of collagen leaves the skin vulnerable, easily damaged, along with sagging and deeper wrinkles. UV sun damage is one of the highest causes of skin aging, dehydration, and skin cancers. Our face is the area of our skin that makes the first impression. It’s constantly exposed and is a visual guide to your overall health!
