SKIN PEN MICRONEEDLING WITH PRF

How Effective Is RF Microneedling? Is It Safe
SKIN PEN MICRONEEDLING WITH PRF

The Skin Clinic is proud to use the SkinPen device for our microneedling treatment, the first FDA-cleared microneedling device. SkinPen is the safest microneedling with a PRF tool on the market. The SkinPen enables precise depths of skin needling, creating better results for your skin!

Microneedling treatments allow your skin to self-repair by creating small, controlled tears in the top layer. Creating tears in the skin will not scar your skin, and it will promote collagen production. Say goodbye to wrinkles, sagging skin, and dull complexions! Using sterile tools ensures the safety of microneedling procedures. The duration of a procedure may take 30–60 minutes, although the amount of time can vary depending on what type of treatment and anatomical locations are being targeted.

Skin pen microneedling with PRF FAQs

Many patients will 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. It may be 3-6 months before you see the final results from your last session. However, the results will vary depending on individual factors.
The skin may appear red and flushed after the procedure, similar to moderate sunburn. The area being treated maybe a little more sensitive to the touch and feel tight. The redness should be gone within a few hours, and your skin will return to normal within 24 hours. After three days, there should be little to no evidence that the procedure has taken place.
Microneedling treatment is not recommended for patients with: keloid scars, scleroderma, collagen vascular diseases or cardiac abnormalities, a hemorrhagic disorder or hemostatic dysfunction, active bacterial or fungal infection.
The Skinpen microneedling procedure should take about 30-45 minutes, and you control the settings for maximum comfort.

Microneedling with Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF)

Microneedling with Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) is an excellent treatment. At The Skin Clinic, we use the most advanced microneedling tool – the SkinPen™. It is the very first FDA-cleared microneedling device.

Microneedling is a popular cosmetic procedure that uses 14 sterilized microneedles to micropuncture the skin, resulting in an increase of collagen production. A sample of blood will be collected then immediately placed in a centrifugation system to concentrate cells and growth factors up to 10 times higher than what’s typically found in whole blood.

This concentration of blood (PRF) is then applied to the face, and the microneedling device penetrates the cells and growth factors into various deeper layers of the skin to promote the regeneration process.

This treatment targets; facial acne scars, fine lines and neck wrinkles, for smoother, more radiant, younger-looking skin
