Ideal candidates for SkinPen® Microneedling with PRP are in good general health and are looking for a minimally invasive treatment to address the following aesthetic concerns:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Sun damage

SkinPen® Microneedling

SkinPen® uses thin needles to create micro-channels in the skin, stimulating the body’s healing response. The body begins to produce more collagen over time, providing smoother, firmer, more youthful skin. A topical numbing cream may be applied before your treatment for your comfort.

-Rich Plasma

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a concentration of platelets in the blood that are crucial to wound healing. When used for skin rejuvenation, PRP releases growth factors into the skin to expedite the body’s own repair process and stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin. With a simple, quick, and advantageous process, your PRP professional is able to derive a high concentration of biological nutrient-rich cells and create autologous platelet-rich plasma. Since the autologous platelet-rich plasma is processed from the patient’s own blood, there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction or rejection.

When adding PRP to your microneedling treatment, your blood will be drawn and used to derive the platelet-rich plasma for application with the SkinPen®.

Recovery and Results

Most patients experience some minor redness and swelling for one to three days after treatment. Some may experience You will be provided with aftercare instructions that should be followed carefully to avoid complications and achieve the best results possible.

You may see some improvement after your skin heals. However, microneedling with PRP relies on the body’s healing ability, so your skin will continue to improve over the next three to four weeks. A series of treatments may be recommended, depending on the cognition being treated.

Chemical Peels

Chemical Peels have been used for decades to revitalize and resurface skin. They involve applying a chemical solution to remove the damaged outer layers of the skin and reveal a younger, clearer, more radiant complexion. Chemical Peels are commonly performed on the face, chest and hands.

Chemical Peels offer a highly effective method to treat a variety of skin problems, including:


  • Fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Dull, flat, “tired-looking” skin
  • Brown spot and age spots
  • Discoloration from acne
  • Sun damage and premature aging
  • Melasma

Types of Chemical Peels

Jessner’s Solution

The common name for a deeper peeling solution of resorcinol and lactic and salicylic acids, The Jessner’s solution is layered on the skin to treat pigmentation, acne, acne scarring and other skin irregularities. Aggressive peeling and occasional crusting forms within two to four days of the peel. Redness and swelling may last a week or more. Results are visible with new, clearer skin within seven to 10 days, but redness or other pigment changes may persist for several weeks.

Glycolics

Alpha hydroxy acids are applied for two to five minutes (or more) to slough away the upper layer of dead skin cells as well as penetrate into the upper layers of the dermis to soften fine lines, promote a rosy glow, encourage better penetration of other skin-care products or even dry an acne flare up. Glycolic peels are no-downtime procedures, with mild redness or irritation the only likely after effect.

SkinMedica Peels

The SkinMedica peel system is a comprehensive peel system made up of three unique peels of varying strength, for targeted degrees of skin exfoliation customized to the needs of the patient.

  • Illuminize peel: This is the lightest peel in the SkinMedica line. Appropriate for patients looking for a quick brightening for a special event. Nicknamed the “party peel” this peel restores brightness and radiance to the skin.
  • Vitalize peel: This mid-range treatment is suitable for all skin types. This treatment is great for patients looking to improve mild to moderate skin conditions such as sun damage, fine lines, and wrinkles, acne, and acne scarring.
  • Rejuvination peel: This peel is best for patients looking to significantly improve the appearance of moderate to sever skin conditions such as sun damage, wrinkles, uneven skin tone and acne scarring. The peel may be suitable for all skin types.

Dermaplaning

Dermplaning is a procedure that resurfaces the skin by removing the thin, outermost layer of skin which is made up of dead epidermal skin cells revealing a brighter, smoother complexion. A specialized surgical blade is used to gently scrape away the very top layer of skin. This treatment is wonderful for exfoliating the skin, reducing skin pigmentation, pore size and wrinkles. Dermaplaning also helps to remove fine villus hair (peach fuzz). Removing the dead skin cells and fine villus hair prepares the skin for other aesthetic procedures such as laser treatments, microneedling or chemical peels. This treatment allows for better penetration of your own personal skin care regimen and creates a flawless canvas for make up application. Your skin will look and feel smoother after a dermaplaning treatment.

Dermaplaning is perfect for those with


  • Rough/dry skin
  • Wrinkles

Dermaplaning is a quick and easy procedure performed in about 20 minutes in the office. There is almost no downtime or discomfort. The procedure is usually repeated once the villus hair returns which is about every 4 weeks. It will not cause hair to grow back any darker or coarser.
