What Is Microneedling with PRP?
Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, has quickly become our most popular service. It is an anti-aging facial that stimulates collagen.* Collagen induction therapy reduces acne scars, wrinkles, enlarged pores, stretch marks and improves tone and texture.* An automated microneedling pen is used to make micro-injuries into the skin to produce collagen and elastin.
PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma, is a cutting-edge form of regenerative medicine that is being used more and more in cosmetic treatments. PRP is performed by drawing a small vial of your own blood. The blood is then spun in a centrifuge to separate the growth factors, platelets and stem cells from the rest of the blood. Once this unique mixture is obtained, the enriched plasma is applied to the desired treatment areas. The enriched plasma contains proteins and molecules that provide nutrients to the skin’s cells, making it a natural, healthy way to improve aging skin.
How Can You Benefit From Microneedling Services In Philadelphia?
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapies promote the induction of collagen when used in an aesthetic treatment. The process uses the patient’s own blood and a Microneedling device (SkinPen Precision) to create a controlled wound, then both apply topically and inject the platelet rich plasma into treatment areas, releasing growth factors that increase the proliferation of cells.
What is SkinPen® Needling?
SkinPen® is a medical grade, state-of-the-art microneedling device that stimulates skin repair through your body’s natural remodeling process. Microneedling with SkinPen® allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair process by creating precise, micro-injuries in the skin that automatically trigger new collagen and elastin synthesis without causing scar tissue formation.
SkinPen® can be used on all types of skin and helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improve the look of acne scars. The procedure takes about 30 minutes and has individualized settings for patient comfort. Many patients see healthier looking skin immediately, but damage to dermal collagen that has occurred over a long period also takes time for remodeling to take place. You may not see the final result for up to 3-6 months following your final session, but individual results will vary.
How the SkinPen® Utilizes PRP to Refresh Your Skin with Minimal Downtime
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), facilitated by the SkinPen®, uses your skin’s natural properties and ability to repair damaged tissues. This allows your skin to look its very best.
Using a small sample of your blood, the blood is spun, resulting in enriched plasma that can be applied where it is needed with the SkinPen®. The SkinPen® uses a microneedling process that creates mini injuries. As the skin heals with SkinPen® aftercare, the result is better-looking, youthful and smooth skin.
