How Does SkinPenMicroNeedling and PRP Work to Improve the Skin?

SkinPenMicroNeedling involves using tiny needles to make very specific puncture wounds in the skin. These puncture wounds will reach down to the skin’s inner layer, or dermis. This type of skin treatment is done very purposefully and skillfully so as to not damage any surrounding skin. Once the needle precisely punctures the skin, your body’s natural healing response will be triggered. Certain cells, called Fibroblasts, will be recruited to the treated skin area. Fibroblasts stimulate the production of collagen, a vital skin protein that plays a key role in structure and shape. Over time, as collagen production is continually stimulated, firmer, tighter and younger-looking skin will regenerate.

PRP & SkinPen Microneedling

While a Skin Pen Micro Needling procedure can be performed by itself, most clients see the best cosmetic results by combining it with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma). The faddish name for PRP is “The Vampire Facial”. PRP treatments have been used for wound and surgical healing even before being used as skin rejuvenation. Platelets are a type of blood cell which play a key role in the body’s clotting response. Without platelets, blood clots wouldn’t form. Platelets are used as they are storage houses for growth factors that enhance cell turnover, tissue regeneration, and wound healing. Specifically, the growth factors attract stem cells to the area, and cell division is stimulated. Additionally, inflammation is limited, tissue healing is improved, and new blood vessel formation is enhanced.

What to Expect:

At Rejuve Clinic, every treatment begins with a consultation where we get to know you and your cosmetic expectations. We conduct a thorough medical history which includes any illnesses, previous skin treatments, medications and allergies. A board-certified physician then does a physical exam of the skin area; a step crucial for ensuring that a proper diagnosis is made. When the diagnosis is determined, our skilled medical team will make a treatment recommendation and you will be encouraged to ask any questions and express your concerns. Our primary goal is a satisfying cosmetic outcome, but first, we want to make sure you are comfortable with your treatment choice.

A licensed medical professional will first coat the skin area to be treated with a numbing gel. This will help reduce feelings of discomfort. A collagen-stimulating product, such as Hyaluronic Acid or Vitamin C, may be placed on the skin as well. Then a micro-needling device will be used to penetrate the skin, down to the dermis. This penetration is very well-controlled and isolated.

PRP & SkinPen MicroneedlingAfter the procedure, you may experience redness and swelling. Your skin may feel sunburned. This sensation should dissipate over two days. Some individuals experience bleeding from the tiny puncture wounds. This is completely normal and not a cause for alarm. Bruising may also occur, but usually resolves over the next couple of days.

If you elect to also receive the PRP treatment, your plasma will need to be collected. A medical professional will use a syringe to draw blood from your arm. The blood will be placed inside a centrifuge, a machine that spins the blood and divides it into separate cell layers. Platelets will be isolated from this process to use in the PRP treatment. A licensed medical professional will then inject the platelets into the skin area being treated.

Since the platelets being used in the PRP procedure come from the patient, there is no danger of an allergic or hyper-sensitivity reaction. It is possible to experience minor inflammation at the injection site.

What are the Risks:

SkinPenMicroNeedling and PRP are generally safe skin-rejuvenation treatments. Redness, minor inflammation, bruising and bleeding may occur. More serious side effects include: infection, hematoma formation, or nerve trauma. If you experience any of those symptoms after your treatment, always call our clinic as soon as possible.

PRP therapy is contraindicated for individuals who have a critically low platelet count (thrombocytopenia); hemodynamic instability; an active infection; chronic liver disease; and for those individuals currently taking anti-coagulants ( such as warfarin; dabigatran and heparin.)

What are the Benefits?

PRP can significantly improve the skin’s texture, tone and firmness over three months.It is a great, minimally-invasive treatment for individuals looking to reduce wrinkles, sun damage and boost collagen production.MicroNeedling has been shown to improve the thickness of skin by 80%, as well as reduce signs of aging ( fine lines, wrinkles, scars, stretch marks) over a few months time. Downtime is minimal for these procedures, and they are definitely more attractive, cost-effective options to surgical procedures.

PRP is a natural product created from your own body. A small amount of blood is drawn from you and placed in a sterile tube that is spun down in a centrifuge to separate the different components of the blood. Red and white blood cells are divided from the platelets and the plasma (the clear fluid). This plasma now contains a higher than normal number of platelets and is called platelet rich plasma, or PRP.

Why Platelets Rejuvenate Skin

Platelets are the cells in the blood that help tissue to heal and grow new cells. The PRP, injected into specific areas of the skin, act as a matrix that promotes your own collagen to grow, regenerates tissue, and thus acts as to naturally smooth and tighten the skin. In this way,PRP softens wrinkles and creating smoother skin texture and tone
