We use SkinPen Precision™, the first and only microneedling device in the industry to receive the important designation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and sets a new standard as the only recognized Class II microneedling device available in the United States. This translates into knowing that you get the benefits and precision of Microneedling with PRP with the comfort of knowing your treatment has FDA safety standards that are being followed to protect your health while receiving a great treatment.
WHAT IS PRP AND MICRONEEDLING?
Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Treatment (CIT), combined with PRP is a very safe and effective treatment for adults with all skin types who wish to improve their skin quality. Microneedling using the award-winning SkinPen Precision™ and only FDA approved device which uses 12 small needes to create superficial micro-channels in the skin to increase fibroblast activity to promote new collagen production in the skin and remodel old deforming collagen which is found in scars and wrinkles
Platelet-Rich Plasma or PRP comes from your own blood and is a safe way to further enhance the microneedling process. PRP is desirable because a foreign substance is not being introduced into the body. PRP contains a high concentration of platelets, stem cells and growth factors. Growth factors are important for new cell generation and cellular functions, such as creating elastic fibers and new collagen. Microneedling with the SkinPen Precision™ allows for deeper absorption of PRP during and after the Microneedling treatment. Using the Micropen alone with PRP does not yield the same effects. Adding PRP to Microneedling strongly enhances collagen production that lasts long after the treatment is complete to regenerate new collagen addressing wrinkles, large pores, skin laxity, facial tone, facial scarring from acne and other signs of aging. This treatment is the new best natural aesthetic on the market!

WHO DOES OUR PRP AND MICRONEEDLING?
Unlike many other esthetic services, our Microneedling is done by a trained Physician versed in PRP and Microneedling who can address any of your concerns.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
First, you will discuss your areas of concern that need attention. Then, a numbing cream will be applied to your clean face for optimal comfort. While the numbing cream is on the skin 20-30 minutes your blood will be drawn and 4 small tubes will be collected, centrifuged and prepared for the procedure. The numbing cream is removed and cleaned with alcohol and the SkinPen is applied across the skin. PRP is applied before and after the microneedling to drive the PRP deep into the dermis (skin) where it can stimulate collagen synthesis. The SkinPen Precision™, best aesthetic winner 2017, is used in your treatment which is the ONLY FDA approved device for microneedling on the market. We insert a new sterile cartridge containing 12 microneedles into the SkinPen and select the appropriate depth setting based on your skin’s unique needs.
Since we apply a topical numbing cream prior to the treatment, discomfort is significantly lessened. Microneedling feels like light sandpaper being moved across the skin or as some say, “it feels like a cat is licking me”. The entire process takes about 60 minutes.
DOWNTIME AND RESULTS?
The downtime is minimal with only one to three days of mild redness, depending on the aggressiveness of the treatment. You may notice an immediate “glow” to your skin and it will continue to improve over the next few weeks. The full results can be seen up 6 weeks after the treatment and may continue up to 6 months post treatment as collagen production continues.
Typically, an Skinpen Precision™ treatment is used in a series of 3 treatments spread out monthly. Maintenance treatments can be done anywhere from 6-12 months depending on the skin concerns and needs of the individual.
