What is SkinPen Microneedling with PRP?

The SkinPen Microneedling procedure creates thousands of micro-injuries to the skin, which when healed, produces tighter, firmer, smoother skin. This procedure by itself has proven to be very effective in rejuvenating aging skin, breaking up hyperpigmentation, and lessening acne scars. The SkinPen Microneedling procedure combined with the topical application of the patient’s own platelet-rich plasma (PRP) takes this aesthetic procedure to a whole new level!

Tell me how it works.

SkinPen Microneedling and PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is a treatment that utilizes the patient’s own blood to revitalize the skin. First, a nurse practitioner will take a small sample of the patient’s blood and place it into a centrifuge to separate the plasma from the rest of the blood. Next, a medical aesthetician will perform the SkinPen Microneedling procedure while applying the patient’s plasma. This plasma will be driven deep into the skin through tiny holes – channels created by the microneedling procedure.  Plasma containing proteins, such as growth factors and cytokines, help skin tissue to quickly repair itself resulting in beautiful new collagen and elastin – the building blocks of firmer, tighter-looking skin!

Why is SkinPen so special?

SkinPen is the first FDA-cleared device for microneedling and by far the best in the aesthetics industry. It is a motorized pen-like device with 33-gauge needles that creates tiny micro-channels at a very rapid rate of up to 1600 penetration per second! Our patients’ safety is our number one concern, so unlike some other microneedling devices, the SkinPen device uses disposable, one-time use the needle cartridges. This patented cartridge gives the medical aesthetician the ability to adjust the depth of the needles and maintain sharpness for at least 80 minutes. During the procedure, the SkinPen device is surrounded by a proprietary BioSheath that acts as a barrier to prevent cross-contamination between procedures.
