Micro Needling with PRP
What is micro-needling?
The SkinPen by Bellus Medical uses a sterile needle-tip containing 12 tiny micro-needles to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin. This stimulates the skin’s repair process to naturally produce collagen and elastin.
benefits of automated micro-needling
Micro-Needling is ideal for smoothing:
- fine lines
- acne scars
- traumatic scars
- stretch marks
Micro-channels created by the treatment allow for optimal absoption of topical products and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), enhancing the effects in the deeper layers of the skin.
automated micro-needling Treatment Areas
SkinPen can be used on all parts of the body, including:
- the face
Automated Micro-Needling Recovery Time
Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the SkinPen setting used and the number of overlapping passes that are performed. On average, patients are red up to 2 to 4 days. Many patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours.
What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy?
Platelet Rich Plasma is a concentration of platelets in the blood that are critical to wound healing. When used to skin rejuvenation, PRP releases growth factors into the skin to speed up the body’s repair process and stimulate new collagen and elastin.
Micro-Needling With PRP Procedure
A small blood sample is taken from your body and the PRP is separated from the other components. The PRP is then applied to the skin immediately following the micro-needling procedure. The channels created by the micro-needling provide direct pathways to the deeper layers of the skin for optimal wound healing. This application is an ideal treatment for smoothing fine lines, wrinkles, and scars or to improve the overall plumpness and rejuvenate the skin.
