SkinPen with PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma)
What is SkinPen with PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma)?
Also know as the ‘Vampire Facial’, SkinPen with PRP takes microneedling to the next level by using your own blood to help promote the healthy activity of your skin cells. The PRP is derived from the serum portion of the blood, which contains platelets. The platelets contain high levels of growth factors and when applied to the skin, will stimulate cell turnover. We start by drawing a small amount of blood from the patient. The blood is then spun in a centrifuge to separate the growth factors, platelets, and stem cells from the rest of the blood. Once this unique mixture is obtained, the enriched plasma is applied to the desired treatment areas during the SkinPen treatment. This is the ultimate expression of the microneedling therapy, providing the best results with the shortest downtime available.
What are the benefits of SkinPen with PRP?
Adding PRP to the SkinPen treatment will improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne scars and stretch marks. You’ll notice an even, radiant complexion as collagen and elastin are produced resulting in firm, even skin tone and texture, as well as a healthy looking complexion.
Are SkinPen with PRP treatments painful?
You may feel some discomfort which will be minimized as much as possible with our topical anesthetic (numbing cream).
How many treatments will I need?
At your consultation, the Aesthetician will assess your skin and determine how many treatments will be needed and what treatments would be the most effective to help achieve your goals. SkinPen requires at least 3 treatments to see results.
