How SkinPen Microneedling Procedures Work
SkinPen is an automated microneedling technology device designed for use by medical professionals.Available only through skincare professionals, SkinPen is a medical-grade, state-of-the-art precision tool that works by creating a series of microscopic channels into the skin. Your skin will look and feel healthier with little downtime! SkinPen is extremely versatile and may be used on all parts of the body and all on skin types.
Our Revolutionary Anti-Aging System
Each of our bodies has innate processes that will react to injury to heal the damage. That is how the SkinPen achieves its results; by taking advantage of that natural process by creating hundreds of temporary micro-sized openings, or micro-channels, in the skin. These “fractionated” micro-channels are created thanks to the brilliant design of the SkinPen disposable needle cartridge, which achieves its work without any thermal energy or chemicals applied to the skin.
PRP - Platelet Rich Plasma Rejuvenation
Using your own platelets for better skin
PRP works on the simple basis that by utilizing your own natural platelets to instruct the body to create new collagen you can create more tauter, smoother and better-toned skin. Utilized in various ways, with or without fillers, the platelet solutions can be introduced with injections or by using an automated microneedling system or as a topical addition to resurfacing.
What is PRP?
PRP Rejuvenation often incorporates fillers with PRP – which stands for Platelet Rich Plasma – to enhance facial shape and volume. It is a simple in-office nonsurgical procedure which uses a concentrated serum processed from your own blood in conjunction with dermal filler to increase the effectiveness and longevity of those fillers…or alone to call in the natural collagen building process.
How does it work?
A small vial of blood is taken from your arm – less than that normally taken for routine blood tests. The blood is then placed in a vial and spun in a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells and plasma. The process concentrates the platelet count to about 4X normal. It is this platelet-rich plasma – often called “liquid gold” – that is then activated and injected into the skin – or applied topically in a surface regeneration action.
The end result?
· healthier appearance
· thicker dermis (reducing wrinkles and scars)
· improved tone
· prolonged duration of fillers (Used with underlying fillers such as Juvederm, Voluma or Radiesse, the PRP serum prolongs and amplifies the filler correction with the need for less filler per treatment and a longer duration.)
