Skin Pen® Microneedling

Skinpen microneedling.​As we get older, bothersome signs of aging, sun-damage, and lifestyle habits such as smoking begin to creep up on us. These visible aesthetic concerns can negatively affect our self-image and how others perceive us. But, there’s a new non-surgical solution for men and women who want to achieve younger, healthier-looking skin. Treatment is done in-office visit with minimal side effects or downtime associated with more invasive procedures.

At Truyu Aesthetic Center, one of our go-to rejuvenation treatments is SkinPen®, the world’s first, and only FDA Approved device to revolutionize Microneedling with PRP (Platelet-Rich-Plasma). It’s a fast, convenient procedure done in a simple office visit. This procedure offers effective results and a quick recovery time without the side effects that are associated with more invasive treatments. Microneedling with PRP is an FDA-approved treatment that involves the use of two procedures that work synergistically to rejuvenate skin. The PRP (Platelet-Rich-Plasma) procedure begins with an initial blood draw upon arrival to our office. Your provider will then separate blood platelets and prepare the enriched plasma (growth factors, platelets, and stem cells) for reinsertion to predetermined treatment areas.

The second part of the procedure involves microneedling, using the SkinPen® device. This device uses a single-use micro-needle attachment that is adjusted to your skin type and thickness. It is a safe, non-invasive device that offers the most effective patient outcome with the least amount of recovery time. The SkinPen® device passes along the surface of the skin to create controlled micro-injuries or channels that stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing process. During this healing response, collagen and elastin are produced resulting in firm, even skin tone, and texture, as well as a healthy-looking complexion. Patients experience little to no discomfort during treatment. You may experience slight redness, dryness, or tenderness after your treatment. These symptoms will typically subside within a few days, similar to a sunburn. You’ll notice a more even, radiant complexion. As collagen production continues over the next few weeks, your skin will continue to gradually improve. Many patients note significant benefits with just one PRP Microneedling treatment session; however multiple sessions may be necessary depending on your end goals.
