MICROpen microneedling WITH PRP

Microneedling with PRP, also known as the Vampire Facial®, has become very popular after being endorsed by celebrities such as Kim Kardashian. There is a reason celebrities love this treatment – it is a great way to rejuvenate the skin. Microneedling on its own works well to refresh the skin, stimulate collagen production, and even skin tone. The addition of PRP, or platelet-rich-plasma, takes the treatment to the next level. Aging skin becomes tighter and smoother, acne scars can be reduced, and skin becomes brighter and younger-looking.

WHAT IS PRP?

PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, has been in use for years to help speed recovery from sports injuries, as it helps wounds heal faster by encouraging the growth of new tissue. When used in conjunction with Eclipse Micropen microneedling for cosmetic purposes, PRP helps to promote collagen production and kick-start the skin’s wound-healing capabilities, resulting in new, healthy skin that looks smoother and younger. PRP is created using the patient’s own blood, so there is no risk of an allergic or adverse reaction. A small vial of blood is drawn, then a centrifuge is used to separate the red blood cells from the platelets. The platelet-rich plasma is then refined and can be used on the skin. It is especially effective with microneedling because the tiny channels created by the micro-needles allow the PRP to reach the dermis, thus allowing for more efficient absorption and better results.

WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?

The Eclipse Micropen microneedle is an automated device that creates a series of precise, controlled micro punctures into the deep layer of the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production. Allows for infusion of skin lightening agents, collagen stimulating creams and anti-aging serums for a dramatic color and texture improvement.
  • Diminishing acne scars, wrinkles, fine lines, pore size.
  • Decreasing discolorations on the skin from melasma, sun damage, age spots.
  • Skin brightening

WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING MY TREATMENT?

After assessment and consultation, the skin will be cleansed and a topical numbing agent applied. Your blood will be drawn from the arm in the same manner as a simple blood test. The blood will then be placed in a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells from the platelets. The numbing cream will be removed prior to treatment. You will feel minimal discomfort and a vibration as the Micropen glides over the skin. The PRP will be applied both during and after the Micropen treatment. After the treatment, the skin will be red. No makeup or other creams can be applied for 4 hours post treatment. You may experience flaky, peeling skin for 3-5 days post treatment. The beautiful results can be appreciated 7-10 days after your treatment. A series of treatments may be recommended.

Intracel RF Microneedle: The Newest Non-Surgical Skin Tightening Technology

What is Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling?

RF Microneedling is the precise delivery of radiofrequency heat energy to the layer of skin called the dermis, where collagen and elastin reside. The Intracel RF Microneedling device utilizes insulated needles in a 9×9 grid. Insulated needles enable delivery of RF heat energy only at the tip of the needle. The insulated part of the needle passing through overlying layers of skin does not deliver heat energy, protecting the epidermis from unnecessary damage; thereby, decreasing downtime and discomfort. This revolutionary treatment is highly effective for:
  • Skin Tightening for face, neck, chest, arms, above knees or anywhere
  • Improvement of Skin Tone and Texture
  • Improvement of Crepey Skin
  • Reduction of Pore Size
  • Correction of Acne Scars and Surgical Scars
  • Treatment of Acne

How does Intracel differ from other RF Microneedle devices?

Unlike other RF Microneedling Devices such as Infini, Vivace, and Profound, Intracel can deliver both monopolar and bipolar RF energy. Monopolar energy, which radiates downward and not between the needles, leads to significantly less discomfort and higher energy delivery than bipolar only devices. Only the Intracel Device offers both monopolar and bipolar capability. Often, both will be utilized in one treatment for synergistic effects at various treatment depths.

Does Intracel treatment hurt?

With the application of topical numbing cream, most find the Intracel RF Microneedle treatment very tolerable with minimal discomfort.

How many treatments are required and how long until I will see results?

Depending on the condition of the skin in the area being treated, we generally recommend 3-4 treatments at 4-6 week intervals. Improvement in tone and texture are can be seen within a couple weeks following each treatment. Skin tightening and wrinkle reduction are generally seen between 2-3 months after each treatment.

How much downtime is associated with Intracel RF Microneedling?

Post treatment, patients generally experience 1-2 days of redness and dryness of skin. Makeup can be applied the day after treatment. Your recommended skin care regimen will be reviewed for optimal results.
