What is SkinPen with PRP?
SkinPen with PRP is a non-surgical procedure that uses a component of your own blood, platelet-rich plasma (PRP), together with the SkinPen microneedling device to imbed your body’s own growth factors into your skin. These growth factors stimulate collagen and elastin production and tissue growth resulting in the softening of fine lines and wrinkles or the reduction in acne scars or stretch marks, producing smoother and more supple skin.
How is SkinPen with PRP performed?
To prepare your platelet-rich plasma, your blood is first collected and then spun in a special centrifuge to separate your blood cells from the PRP. Once the PRP has been isolated, it is applied directly to the face, neck, and or decollate area. Once the PRP has been applied, the SkinPen microneedling device is used to deliver the PRP throughout the treatment area.
How many treatments are needed for best results?
When you receive a PRP treatment or vampire facial at CIM, a licensed physician, not an aesthetician, trained in the use of both SkinPen and PRP, will administer your treatment. Your provider will assess your skin and recommend a treatment schedule that is appropriate for your individual skincare goals.
