Microneedling and Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)
The Micropen is a multifunctional, microneedling tool which helps to alleviate and reduce many skin conditions, including:
- Acne scars and wound healing
- Improve wrinkles and fine lines
- Minimize pore size
- Improve stretch marks
- Treat alopecia or hair loss
- Improve skin tightening, lifting and rejuvenation
Compared to traditional dermal needling devices, the Micropen minimizes epidermal damage which means less pain and bleeding. Micropen is very easy to maneuver which allows us to follow the contours of the face. Additionally, since the Microneedling Micropen uses a vertical delivery system, the needles penetrate scar tissues without the risk of bending.
As a result, Micropen treatments have shorter treatment times, are less painful and have no side effects. Micropen treatments vary in depth depending upon skin condition for which the device is being used. Light treatments are a great way to treat mild acne scarring and improve fine lines and skin texture, where deeper needling treatments may be necessary to improve more significant acne scarring, keloid scarring or stretch marks.
We now offer this treatment with Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP). Your own platelets contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors that aid in the healing process. By combining this therapy with the Microneedling treatment, which creates a controlled injury in the skin, your body is able to boost the healing process and create more collagen for skin rejuvenation.
