Microneedling/PRP San Antonio
Radiance MedSpa is now offering microneedling with PRP in San Antonio using the Eclipse Micropen Elite to help patients who would like to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, scars, stretch marks, and acne scars while minimizing pores.
What Is Microneedling with PRP?
During microneedling, a specialized cosmetic device with a tip that consists of small, sterilized needles is used to create pinpoint punctures in the top layer of skin where acne, wrinkles, fine lines, and other unwanted blemishes are located. These microwounds cause the body to kickstart the production of collagen for long-term improvements in the firmness and overall appearance of the skin.
The microneedles also work to form temporary, tiny channels in the surface of the skin, creating the ideal conditions for PRP to be absorbed. PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, which is a substance derived from a patient’s own blood that supports optimal cellular repair and regeneration.
Since the microchannels allow for maximum penetration and absorption of PRP, microneedling + PRP is a great treatment solution for patients seeking more noticeable skin rejuvenation in less time.
How Does the Eclipse Micropen Elite Work?
The Eclipse Micropen Elite is a fractional microneedling device with a unique spring-loaded disposable needle tips that use an automated, vibrating, stamp-like motion to enhance results. It offers a more controlled and safer method of treatment than other micro-needling devices, all while causing less epidermal damage.
The automated needling motion minimizes pain and discomfort, while increasing the effectiveness of treatments by promoting an even absorption of topicals into the skin. It creates very small wound patterns to break old collagen chains and trigger the healing process to smooth the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks.
Is Microneedling with PRP Right for You?
One of the most exciting advantages of this treatment is that it can be used on dark and light skin types. There is minimal downtime, minimal discomfort, and an almost immediate outcome.
The Eclipse Micropen Elite is used for:
- Acne & Chicken Pox Scars
- Skin Tightening, Lifting & Rejuvenation by stimulating the production of collagen
- Wrinkles & Fine Lines
- Crows Feet & Lip Lines
- Forehead Lines & Frown Lines
- Stretch Marks
- Wound Healing
What Happens During a Microneedling + PRP Session?
Your session will begin with the aesthetician applying a topical anesthetic to reduce any potential discomfort. He or she will then gradually move the Eclipse Micropen Elite across the treatment area(s), allowing the device’s tiny needles to penetrate the skin and create micropunctures.
After the Micropen, a sterilized syringe will be used to draw a small amount of blood from your arm. The blood is put in a centrifuge to obtain the PRP, which is gently massaged into the microchannels to boost healing and collagen production.
What to Expect After Microneedling and PRP
Some patients need only one treatment to see visible results. Though, most will need several treatments spaced 8-12 weeks apart, dependent on the condition to be treated and the desired outcome.
Recovery time is minimal. Following the treatment, the area treated will be red, swollen and irritated. The redness can last three to five days. After 24 hours you can wear makeup to cover the area.
That’s not all! Even greater benefits can be received if pre-treatment is included. Dr. Laura Bennack often suggests a chemical peel too, for example.
How Much Does a Microneedling with PRP Treatment Cost?
Microneedling with PRP is a cost-effective treatment solution for many patients. The specific price will depend on the size of the treatment area, severity of your skin concerns, and other factors.
