SkinPen Microneedling + PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)

Microneedling creates mirochannels in the skin that allow nutrients and serums to cells below the top layer of the epidermis. PRP contains the body’s own source of growth factors that can stimulate collagen and elastic regeneration. It is ideal to as a topical serum because it is physiologic to the body, and has minimal risks of reaction. PRP has demonstrated the ability to rejuvenate the skin, making it an ideal procedure for anti-aging and scar revision. Areas suitable for Microneedling + PRP include the face, neck, décolletage, stretch marks and scars on the abdomen, and anywhere on the body that would benefit from collagen and elastin growth. Microneedling + PRP is typically prescribed in a series of 3-4 treatments per year to achieve best results.

SkinPen by Bellus Medical is the only microneedling device in the world cleared by the U.S. FDA , clinically proven to safely and effectively treat facial acne scars for people ages 22 and up. It is also excellent for fine lines and surgical scars.

With as few as three non-invasive treatments, spaced thirty days apart, you can improve your appearance for up to six months or more after your last treatment – and feel confident with your improved appearance.

The SkinPen micro needling causes localized micro-perforations that stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process. The micro-perforations trigger the release of cytokines that lead to the formation of new collagen and elastin.

There are three phases to the SkinPen wound repair process:

Phase I: Inflammation

Piercing the skin with microneedles triggers the immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.

Phase II: Proliferation

The wound is re-built with new granulation cells, as well as a temporary (type III) collagen and elastin, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.

Phase III: Remodeling

The wound has been replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels. The type III collagen in the newly formed tissue is replaced with stronger type I collagen, which can contract to create a tightening or “shrink wrap” effect on the skin.
