While it is inevitable that we will all age over time, it doesn’t necessarily mean we have to show that we are aging. Trying to recapture our skin’s youth and keeping a youthful appearance is not a new concept. However, the ways we are able to achieve it are becoming more and more innovative.
Such is the case with the PRP facial through microneedling with PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma). These treatments are gaining more and more interest as people are becoming less willing to use artificial measures and risky procedures to erase the signs of aging.
How Does it Work?
Microneedling with PRP is a process in which tiny needles are inserted just below the skin’s surface of your face with what is known as a microneedling pen. While it may only feel like a bunch of tiny pinpricks to the skin, the results are astounding as the skin begins to look and feel rejuvenated and younger.
Once the skin is prepared with the microneedling pen, the Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) can be introduced. The PRP is collected from a small sample of your own blood, which is typically taken at the time of your appointment. Your blood sample is then placed in a centrifuge where it is spun until the platelets and plasma separate from the rest of the blood.
These platelets are extremely rich in growth factors and is often used for people who are seeking alternative and effective relief from pain or injuries. However, it is also just as effective for facial aesthetics, as it does an excellent job of restoring fine lines and wrinkles on the face. It even helps reduce the appearance of acne scars.
Microneedling with Skin Pen Technology:
The SkinPen that is used for the microneedling procedure is the first cleared Class II Microneedling Device approved by Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It has been clinically proven to be safe and effective for treating lines, wrinkles, acne, and facial scars.
The SkinPen utilizes a sterile cartridge that allows for a precise determination of depth to go under the skin’s surface, as well as straight needles, which help support the natural healing process of the skin. It is also the only medical-grade microneedling product available in the U.S. that offers a safe and precise depth adjustment and with lab-tested, proprietary technology to prevent cross-contamination.
There are many advantages to using the SkinPen for microneedling with PRP, including:
- Little to no downtime following the procedure
- Works on all skin types and tones from light to dark
- Shortened procedure time
- Clinically proven to be safe and effective
- Effective alternative to cosmetic surgery
- Minimally invasive
- Beautiful and lasting results
- Relatively comfortable procedure
