SkinPen® Microneedling + PRP
SkinPen® allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair process by creating thousands of precise micro-injuries in the dermis triggering new collagen synthesis without causing scar tissue formation.
Making headlines in the news on “The View” in 2013 and recently winning the 2017 Aesthetic Industry Award for meeting the Gold Standard in microneedling. SkinPen® by Bellus Medical is the only legally marketed and FDA cleared microneedling device.
Microneedling + PRP
SkinPen® Microneedling combined with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is an effective therapy to remove acne scars, age spots, as well as improve poor skin texture and tone. Results are seen within one week of treatment. After one treatment of SkinPen® Microneedling with PRP your skin will be rejuvenated and tighter. For optimal results, we recommend a series of three treatments, 4-6 weeks apart. Additionally, we recommend pre-conditioning your skin with Defenage for 2 weeks prior and adding a CooLift hyaluronic acid treatment at the end of your procedure to further aid in collagen building. We will be happy to answer further questions regarding this unique procedure at the time of your consultation and customize your SkinPen® Microneedling treatment for optimal results!
WHAT IS PRP THERAPY?
PRP or (Platelet Rich Plasma) combined with microneedling is one of the most effective ways to achieve quick, repairing results for your skin’s overall heath. A small amount of blood is collected in a tube just like when you have your blood drawn for lab tests. Once collected, it is placed in a centrifuge and spun. The plasma is separated from the blood and then collected into a syringe. We call this the “Golden Good Stuff”. Growth factors and platelets, we have extracted from your blood are then dripped over your skin as we microneedle over the face or areas being treated. The benefit of PRP is powerful and when combined with microneedling it is delivered to reach deeper parts of the dermis. This rejuvenates skin’s repair mechanism and stimulates collagen production.
