Dermapen® Micro-Needling with PRP
The Dermapen treatment is successful at treating a variety of skin presentations.
The Dermapen fractional micro delivery provides unparalleled collagen induction via fragmented delivery of needles into the epidermis and dermis. These micro injuries to the skin encourage and harness the power of the body's innate ability to re-grow and repair the skin through the physiology of collagen induction.
The Dermapen’s controlled precision allows for the three phases of CIT mechanics of new collagen growth to occur. The first phase begins with the release of the bodies growth factors and the further cascade of new epidermal growth, fibroblast chemo-taxis, fibroblast proliferation and matrix production.
This proliferation of the body's tissue continues to release growth factors from fibroblasts, keratinocytes and monocytes culminating in the second of three phases of CIT mechanics where collagen III, IV and I, elastin, proteoglycans, GAG’s and angiogenesis occur.
The last phase of CIT and the Dermapen treatment results in the tissue remodeling process where the skins vascular matrix matures and skin tightening as well as new collagen can be seen.
Combining Dermapen micro-needling with Platelet-rich Plasma, a patient can get a much more enhanced result. Platelet-rich plasma is harvested from the patient”s own blood and restored into the skin tissue during the micro-needling procedure. The end result is much faster healing and better collagen growth, creating a richer, smoother, glowing look to your skin.
The body’s ability to remodel and heal itself is at the heart of this amazing product and because the process never involves heat or thermal energy or other chemicals or unnecessary trauma, the skin can quickly heal with almost zero downtime.
"I was so happy with my first Dermapen treatment. Immediately my skin was significantly softer and two days later I felt like my skin was glowing. I went out without foundation because I didn't feel like I needed it! I would definitely get a Dermapen treatment again and look forward to the results after multiple treatments!"
"The Dermapen is great! It didn't hurt at all and I could go back to work without an embarrassing red face. My skin felt so soft and fresh the next day. I'm excited to now see my wrinkles start to fade away."
"The redness went away in a few days and I was pleased with the results, as there appears to be improvement in the lines around my eyes."
"I have absolutely loved my experience with Dermapen so far. I have looked forward to every treatment. One of the things I have loved most about Dermapen is that I have been able see results right away. Having had quite a few other treatments before Dermapen to treat my Acne scars, I really felt that this treatment made a lot of sense and I loved the results. One of the other things I have appreciated about this treatment is the recovery time. I am able to go to work and live my everyday lifestyle without feeling or looking any different. Dermapen is a practical, painless and sensible treatment option. I would reccomend it to anyone."
Microneedling with PRP
Microneedling is used to minimize the signs of aging. During a standard session a special roller or device with needles to prick the skin and stimulate new collagen production is run over the treatment area. Because of this, microneedling is also known as collagen induction therapy.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP), as an injection or topically, can be added to the session for an additional cost. It may improve the healing and decrease the duration of redness and swelling seen after microneedling.
Microneedling is used to treat everything from age spots and wrinkles to scarring and certain forms of hyperpigmentation. PRP may boost these effects and help you achieve your desired results faster.
Although microneedling can be used to treat scars and stretch marks on other areas of the body, most treatment with PRP and scars are focused on the treatment of the face.
The term vampire facial is typically used to refer to microneedling with PRP plus dermal filler used topically, afterward.
Most patients are good candidates for this type of the procedure, with few contraindications to treatment existing.
