More and more, people are looking for ways to keep their skin looking young and healthy. One of the most popular ways to achieve this is through micro-needling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP).
Micro-needling is a popular choice for patients who want to achieve smoother, softer skin without the downtime of Fractional co2 laser. When performed with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), this type of treatment is enhanced by delivering your own blood derived growth factors for healthy cell production, increase in collagen production and repair of damaged tissues.
Automated micro-needling is an innovation in aesthetics for the treatment of the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the skin’s texture, tone and color. The skin’s repair process may result in improvement of the appearance of softer wrinkles. SkinPen® is the most advanced medical-grade automated micro-needling device on the market.
A sterile cartridge containing 12 tiny micro-points is attached to the SkinPen®. Your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of saline solution to your skin and select the appropriate treatment setting based on your unique needs.
Next, in a single motion, the pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding until the entire treatment area has been covered.
The Micro-Needling treatment with PRP causes a release of at least 8 essential natural growth factors from your own body resulting in a natural and healthy production of new collagen and elastin which is what creates that youthful appearance. The PRP is obtained by drawing a small amount of blood then using a centrifuge to separate out the PRP. The PRP is then applied topically during Micro-Needling treatment and can also be injected to accelerate collagen production. PRP has been used for years to heal wounds and for other purposes. Today, PRP therapies are also available for facial rejuvenation and other areas of aesthetic medicine.
