The Micropen for micro-needling is the latest innovation in cellular regeneration and collagen induction therapy. It works to help tighten and lift skin while also minimizing common problems that many of us experience while managing to be less aggressive towards your skin than laser or IPL treatments.
The Micropen creates micro-channels throughout the areas being treated, which helps to significantly increase your skins production of collagen and elastin. Boosted collagen and elastin production = smoother, younger looking skin. On top of those benefits it also enhances your skins ability to absorb medical grade topicals that are applied during and immediately after treatments. This is where PRP comes in.
PRP stands for platelet rich plasma. Platelets are the cells within our blood which respond to injury to help initiate and promote healing, while the plasma helps by way of nutrients and proteins. For years PRP has been injection into joints by doctors and surgeons in order to speed up the healing process; now it is being applied to other areas of medicine, such as aesthetics. By isolating the PRP from your blood and applying it back to your skin during the micro-needling treatment, it promotes the growth of collagen and regenerates tissue while exponentially increasing the speed of your skins recovery. This results in a thicker dermis, softer wrinkles, less scarring and improved skin tone.
The number of treatments needed is specific to your unique skin and the problems you experience. Anticipate needing several treatments in order to see the results you crave.
