What is Microneedling?
Micro-needling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that helps minimize the signs of aging. The SkinPen micro-needling device causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process. The micro-injuries trigger the release of cytokines and growth factors that lead to remodeling of the tissue.
Microneedling can help improve:
Wrinkles and fine lines
Poor skin texture or tone
ReVamp| Microneedling with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
When PRP is used with Microneedling, it penetrates your skin through the tiny channels the microneedles create. The PRP supercharges the Microneedling benefits. PRP contains highly concentrated amounts of natural growth factors and other cytokines that promote the regeneration process of soft tissues. The PRP is applied directly to the channels that were created from the micro-needling to further stimulate the natural healing process and creation of collagen.
What is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)?
PRP comes from your own blood and contains high concentrations of platelets and growth factors that help your tissue heal and grow new cells. PRP is obtained by drawing a small amount of blood from your arm into a sterile tube. The tube is centrifuged to separate your plasma, the portion of the blood that we use for the treatment, from your red and white blood cells, which settle to the bottom of the tube.
After the treatment, your skin will be slightly pink and feel slightly sunburned. For most people, your skin will completely recover in 24-72 hours. Your body’s collagen production usually takes about 4-8 weeks, so you will continue to see improvements over this time.
Series of 3-4 treatments scheduled 4 weeks apart
