What Are The Benefits of MicroPen With PRP Treatments?
Facial rejuvenation is fastly becoming one of the most popular cosmetic services on the market. Both men and women want younger, healthier-looking skin, and they want it now. With all the new treatment options available, clients can benefit from near-instant results with little downtime.
The MicroPen® is the latest technology in microneedling, a procedure that uses controlled skin injury to stimulate your body’s natural healing and skin regenerative process. The Eclipse MicroPen® allows clients with all skin types and colors to achieve a more youthful appearance.
Microneedling at a glance:
Microneedling is minimally-invasive.
It’s safe and effective for nearly all skin types and colors.
Noticeable results within 3-5 days.
Minimal downtime is needed.
When microneedling is combined with Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP), the results are incredible. The MicroPen® creates tiny paths and channels under your skin for the PRP to effectively do their job. Platelet-Rich-Plasma is obtained through a simple blood draw before being separated and applied to the treatment area.
Are MicroPen® Results Less Noticeable Without PRP?
PRP uses your body’s natural growth factors to stimulate collagen and skin cell production. When used alongside the Eclipse MicroPen®, you’ll see improved skin tone and texture faster. On average, clients see noticeable results within 3-5 days after their combined treatment. Collagen production continues to be boosted for up to three months after your procedure. While results vary from a patient by patient basis, you can expect long-lasting rejuvenation for up to a year or more.
Depending on your individual needs and desired results, you may require a follow-up appointment 4-6 weeks after your initial MicroPen®/PRP treatment. During your in-person consultation, one of our skincare specialists will help you determine how many sessions are right for you.
