What is SkinPen?
A micro-needling tool that uses sharp needles to create tiny holes in your skin. In response to these tiny micro-injuries, your body produces collagen and elastin to heal the wound naturally.
Effective remodeling of scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact. This can be
used anywhere on the body for dark stretch marks, acne scarring, surgical scarring, fine lines, wrinkles,
pore size, and texture for all skin types.
What is Microneedling with PRP?
The “Vampire Facial” takes microneedling to the next level, using your own blood’s special healing cells to improve your skin tone and smooth out any imperfections.
What Is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)?
In this setting, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is derived from a small sample of your own blood. PPR is used because it contains a variety of growth factors and other beneficial proteins. On the day of your treatment, a small sample of blood will be drawn and then spun in a centrifuge for roughly 15 minutes. Centrifugation causes the various components of blood – including platelets – to separate by density. Your clinician will then extract the PRP in order to harness its powerful skin-healing effects.
How Does Microneedling with PRP Work?
After a small blood draw, your clinician will apply a topical anesthetic to your face. Then they’ll pass over
it with a microneedling pen or derma-roller. These devices prick tiny holes in your skin, stimulating its
natural healing processes – and creating channels for the PRP. In addition, the tiny breaks in the skin
stimulate collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin which allows for facial rejuvenation by
reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles, scars and even hyperpigmentation.
