What is a SkinPen® PRP treatment?

SkinPen® is a FDA approved, medical grade, state-of-the-art micro needling device that stimulates skin repair through your body's natural remodeling process. Micro needling with SkinPen® stimulates the skin's self-repair process by creating precise, micro-injuries in the skin that automatically trigger new collagen and elastin synthesis without causing scar tissue formation. SkinPen® can be used on all types of skin and helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improve the look of acne scars.

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) contains human growth factors that enhance your collagen production and stimulate your body’s natural rejuvenation process. PRP is obtained from a simple blood draw in the office and placed on your skin during your SkinPen® treatment. Together, SkinPen® and PRP naturally rejuvenate your skin’s texture and appearance.

The procedure takes about 30 minutes and has individualized settings for patient comfort. Many patients see healthier looking skin immediately, but damage to dermal collagen that has occurred over a long period also takes time for remodeling to take place. You may not see the final result for up to 3-6 months following your final session. Individual results will vary.

What to expect with a SkinPen® PRP treatment?

Dr Hanna will meet with you to discuss your unique concerns to develop your treatment plan. Depending on your goals, your treatment may require more than one visit.

A topical numbing cream will be applied to your skin to ensure your comfort during the treatment. Most patients feel no discomfort. A small sample of your blood will be drawn and processed to obtain your PRP used for your treatment. The treatment will last approximately 30 minutes.

The Recovery process will last about 48-72 hours for most individuals. Initially your skin may be red and sensitive like sunburn. Post treatment we recommend keeping your skin well hydrated and avoid UV light. There is no physical downtime but you may want to schedule social downtime for the recovery process. SkinPen® PRP treatments can be repeated monthly if needed to obtain your desired outcome.
