When it comes to medical spa procedures and taking care of our skin, we want to rest assured that our treatments are the best of the best. At Divine Laser & Anti-Aging MedSpa, we’re happy to provide our patients with the most cutting-edge technologies and advanced treatments that yield unbelievable results. Our team proudly works with the SkinPen® for all of our patients’ microneedling and microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments. Let’s dive deeper into what makes the SkinPen® so special.
How SkinPen® Microneedling Works
The SkinPen® is the first ever FDA-approved hand-held microneedling device that’s been clinically proven to safely and effectively treat acne scarring along the skin. What makes the SkinPen® so special is its ultra-thin, hair-like needles that, when pressed into the skin, create micro channels that help the skin better absorb nutrients and increases the body’s natural production of collagen. We typically recommend our patients receive SkinPen® microneedling treatments with the addition of PRP. This nutrient-rich substance found within our own bodies further boosts collagen production in the skin and provides our bodies with an extra nourishing boost.
The Benefits of Microneedling with PRP
There are a variety of benefits associated with microneedling with PRP, including:
- Minimizes enlarged pores
- Improves acne and acne scarring
- Evens skin tone and skin texture
- Reverses skin damage
- Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Tightens mildly lax skin
Healing After SkinPen® Treatments
The best part of microneedling with PRP is the minimal downtime and recovery period associated with each treatment. Microneedling with the SkinPen® is minimally invasive, which means you’ll be able to return back to your normal daily routine including work immediately following your treatment. Just be aware that your skin will be a little red and sensitive, similar to the feeling of a fresh sunburn. This is normal and should resolve on its own within about 24 hours.
The Results of your SkinPen® Microneedling Treatment
You’ll be able to see some results of your SkinPen® microneedling treatment immediately, as your skin will feel more plump and supple after your treatment. Your skin tone and texture will continue to improve over the following weeks as the PRP and micro channels will work together in restoring collagen in your skin. We may recommend a series of treatments spaced several weeks apart for ultimate results. Want to schedule your first SkinPen® microneedling with PRP treatment?
