SkinPen® + PRP
SkinPen® Precision by Crown Aesthetics is the first FDA-cleared microneedling device.
Microneedling is a cutting-edge treatment that improves deep wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, acne scars, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, and thinning hair. The needle punctures create tiny openings (channels of micro-trauma) and trigger the production of collagen and elastin.
Microneedling benefits greatly increase with the addition of PRP. Extracted from your own blood, PRP increases cell function and quality, and speeds healing time. The PRP is layered on the skin prior to the pulsing of the needles.
Microneedling is a non-invasive medical grade skin rejuvenation procedure that works by creating controlled micro-injuries to stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing process while minimizing cellular damage. This effectively remodels scar tissue while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact. Microneedling is designed to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars and stimulate the skin’s natural ability to produce collagen.
It is the only FDA-approved microneedling device. SkinPen®’s patent-pending, single-use sterile needle cartridge is built with safety in mind. SkinPen® is also surrounded by a proprietary BioSheath that acts as a barrier to prevent cross-contamination between procedures. For these reasons, SkinPen® sets the industry standard for safety
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet Rich Plasma is relatively simple to obtain and the entire process can be done in-office in less than a half-hour. A small amount of blood is drawn from the patient and then spun in a centrifuge. This separates the platelets – which comprise just a tiny percentage of the blood – from red and white blood cells. This is then injected into the area of skin being treated, releasing growth factors that recruit and increase reparative cells. Since platelet-rich plasma is produced from the patient’s own blood, it is the ultimate in “natural” healing.
Who are SkinPen® treatments for?
SkinPen® can be used to treat a variety of skin issues including fine lines, wrinkles and scars. It can help with loss of elasticity by tightening the skin and leaves patients enjoying a healthy glow. SkinPen® has been clinically shown to be effective for women and men with skin ranging from light to very dark, and it can even be used on sensitive skin because its mechanical process is less abrasive than harsh chemical peels.
