SkinPen: PRP Microneedling
Microneedling is the use of tiny needle punctures to stimulate collagen production and help treat scarring, wrinkles, and acne. When microneedling is combined with PRP, the therapy may then be referred to as "collagen induction therapy".
PRP- Your very own Blood Platelets are the cells in the blood that help tissue to heal and grow new cells. The PRP, microneedled into the skin, promotes your own collagen to grow, regenerates tissue, and thus acts as to naturally smooth and tighten the skin. In this way, PRP softens wrinkles and creates smoother skin texture and tone.
How the treatment works: First, the blood is drawn from your arm. Then, the vial is put into a centrifuge that spins the blood to isolate the PRP. The platelets in your blood contain active growth elements that regenerate your skin. After your skin is numbed with a topical anesthetic, it is Microneedled into the face. This minimally invasive solution involves insertion of very short, thin needles into the surface of the skin. In response to the controlled wound caused, the skin makes new tissue that is more even in both texture and tone.
Recovery: Skin for a majority of patients will appear red or flushed for 12-24 hours after PRP treatments.
