We use SkinPen by Crown Aesthetics which is the first FDA-cleared microneedling device on the market and is clinically proven to improve the appearance of wrinkles of the neck and acne scars in patients ages 22 and older. In as few as three minimally invasive treatments spaced 30 days apart, you can improve your appearance and step out with confidence.
How does Microneedling work? It creates thousands of microchannels that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process, while minimizing cellular damage. This rejuvenates your skin from the inside out. The result is effective remodeling of scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.
We can use Microneedling in combination with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). PRP is a platelet concentrated component from your own blood that contains nutrient rich cells and protein growth factors. We draw a small amount of your own blood, spin it down and just use the plasma. PRP stimulates elastin and collagen production. Collagen and elastin are responsible for thickening and tightening your overall skin. It also helps in reducing wrinkles and fine lines. PRP is most beneficial for people who suffer from scarring.
SkinPen Pre-Treatment Instructions:
Discontinue any exfoliation products 24 hours prior to treatment.
We recommend if you have a history of herpes that you do a course of antiviral medication pre and post treatment. If you are prone to cold sores this will prevent an outbreak.
SkinPen Post-Treatment Instruction:
You may not apply anything to your skin for 6-8 hours after treatment. This includes make-up or any SPF products.
You will experience redness and swelling for 1-2 days after the treatment.
You will be sent home with two topical ointments, one to be applied the evening of your procedure and one to be applied 24 hours after your procedure.
Avoid exercise, and any excessive heat.
