SkinPen Microneedling Austin
How SkinPen Works:
The SkinPen uses 12 surgical-grade stainless steel needles to create thousands of micro-channels in the treated skin. This fractionated approach allows for two main benefits:
- Temporary micro-channels allow for superior penetration and diffusion of topicals during and post-procedure, allowing for optimal delivery
- Fractionated injuries to the dermal tissues without ablation or introduction of thermal energy allows for quick, safe, and effective percutaneous collagen induction therapy, even in patients with darker skin types.
These benefits allow for the treatment of many skin conditions which may require either collagen remodeling (i.e., photo-aging, acne scarring, stretch-marks), optimization of topical drug delivery (i.e., acne, melasma) or both.
The SkinPen Advantage:
SkinPen is the safest, most effective vertical microneedling device as it offers state-of-the-art skin rejuvenating technology. By creating a series of hundreds of vertical microscopic channels into the dermis, SkinPen stimulates the natural production of new collagen and elastin.
Stretch Marks: Priced by consultation
Vampire Facial combines SkinPen Microneedling with hydrating hyaluronic acid solution (HA) and Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP). Skinpen has been clinically proven to induce skin rejuvenation with collagen repair. Skinpen creates tiny micro channels in the skin to allow penetration of the PRP and HA into the ideal layer of the skin to maximize your skin regeneration and repair.
PRP is plasma with a high concentration of platelets. The concentration of platelets and, thereby, the concentration of growth factors can be 5 to 10 times greater (or richer) than normal. Blood contains only 6% platelets however, in PRP, the concentration of platelets is around 94%, which translates to a powerful growth factor “cocktail.” This stimulates cellular tissue regeneration to dramatically accelerate healing.
For this reason, this treatment is very successful in treating the signs of ageing and stimulating tissue regeneration.
Skinpen & Sculptra Combination
Sculptra: Unlike hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, Sculptra Aesthetic helps stimulate your skin’s own natural collagen production to help restore its inner structure and increase facial volume that has been lost to aging.
Rather than instantly filling or smoothing lines like their counterparts, collagen-stimulating fillers are longer-lasting and add volume that actually lifts the soft tissues, ultimately diminishing lines. The boost in collagen is essentially an immune reaction to the injected material that helps plump the area from within. Applied topically after Microneedling, Sculptra is able to use the open microchannels as a pathway into the dermis, enhancing the collagen production.
Adding PRP or Sculptra: Think of both of these as enhancements or boosters to your micro needling treatment.
Adding PRP with the treatment will speed your healing time, and just like Sculptra, it will enhance and accelerate the collagen regeneration. PRP however uses your body’s own healing properties to do this. So if you’d rather go all natural or “organic”, that’s your best bet. Sculptra will not provide you with healing more quickly but it will give an extra collagen boost that your own PRP won’t.
