Dermapen and Platelet Rich Plasma (Non-Invasive, Non-Surgical Skin Tightening and Hair Rejuvenation)

 

Micro-needling and Platelet Rich Plasma?

One of the best kept Hollywood secrets is micro needling with platelet rich plasma (PRP). PRP contains several different growth factors and other cytokines that can stimulate cell rejuvenation and healing of damage tissues. The use of growth factors and platelet rich plasma, which is the basis for the Vampire Lift, combined with micro-needling greatly improves the results of micro needling.

Blood is mainly consist of a liquid called plasma but also contains blood cells i.e. red cells, white cells, and platelets. The platelets are importance for clotting blood but they also contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors and other cytokines which are very important in the healing of injuries. Platelet-rich plasma(PRP) is that part of blood plasma that is enriched with platelets.

PRP can be used to improve skin texture, lines and wrinkles. It can also be used to promote hair growth by stimulating hair follicle growth. By placing it into the deeper skin layer with micro needling, fibroblasts and other cells can be stimulated to a more youthful function. PRP act as a matrix that promotes your own collagen to grow, regenerates tissue, and naturally smooth and tighten the skin. In this way, PRP softens wrinkles and creating smoother skin texture and tone.*NeedleFusion- Microneedling at Taylor Medical Group in Atlanta

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is obtained by drawing blood prior to the treatment. The blood is centrifuged and the PRP is obtained and applied to the skin or scalp. The Dermapen micro needling procedure can be done with or without PRP and both treatments choices achieve great results.

PRP can be injected deep into the skin like traditional dermal fillers to fill deep folds and wrinkles. PRP can ofter a more natural solution for patients that do not want traditional dermal fillers like Juvederm. *

How micro-needling works

Dermapen micro-needing penetrates the skin and creates micro-openings deep into the dermis that stimulate the body’s natural healing process. This natural healing process releases growth factors and stimulates collagen, elastin and fibroblast cells production that leads to tightening and lifting of the skin.

Microneedling increases new collagen production and remodels old deformed collagen which is found in scars, wrinkles, large pores and stretch marks. It can makes facial skin look youthfully thicker and reduce signs of aging.*

The micro-opening can also stimulate the growth of epithelial cell that line blood capillaries and vessels that increase blood flow to the skin. The healing process lasts for about 45 days and optimal results are seen at that time.*

The treatment results are similar to laser treatments, but without the severe side effects or the long recovery time. Micro-needling is less costly and can be just as effective as fractional, radio-frequency and CO2 laser treatments, microdermabrasions and chemical peels. The procedure can be performed on any area of the body where skin tightening and skin rejuvenation is desired. It is a great non-invasive, non-surgical facelift option. To achieve the best results, a series of treatments is recommended.*

 

Once these channels are opened, they can carry up to eighty percent more of topical platelet rich plasma (Blood Lift), hyaluronic acid and peptides, deep into the dermis to nourish fibroblasts and other skins cells that stimulate cellular repair, rejuvenation and regeneration.*

Dermapen needling can be used to tighten sagging skin, improve skin tone, texture, discoloration, melisma and milia (white raised transparent bumps), reduce fine lines, Crow’s feet, expression lines, scars and wrinkles, and minimize acne scars and stretch marks. Micro needling is a non-surgical facelift option that can achieve the benefits of surgery without its downside.*

Prior To Treatment

  • Avoid Retin-A, benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid for at least
    12 hours prior to treatment
  • Avoid auto-immune or anti-coagulant medications at 12 hours prior to treatment
  • Avoid prolonged sun exposure or tanning at least 12 hour to treatment
  • Thoroughly wash and clean your face and don’t wear makeup on the day of the procedure

What Can I Expect During the Treatment

The treatment is minimally invasive with no downtime. A full-face treatment usually takes about an hour. Prior to the treatment, the face is numbed with a topical anesthetic cream for at about 20 minutes.
The face is then treated using the Derma Pen micro-needle. The treatment makes tiny skin pinholes that leave the skin red and triggers the rejuvenation process. Patients can expect redness, itching, stinging, tightness and swelling following a treatment that usually resolves within a few days.

When Will I See Results

Skin improvements can usually be seen about just 6-8 days following a treatment and results improve up to 90 days later. A course of sessions (serial treatments) is usually recommended to achieve optimal results.*
