Dermapen treatments are a great option for men and women who are looking to improve their skin’s texture, diminish the appearance of fine lines, erase hyperpigmentation, and much more. This non-invasive procedure is quick and efficient. While Dermapen treatments can provide you with a number of great benefits on their own, you can choose to enhance the results with PRP. Combining the two techniques allows you to achieve noticeable results that last.
What Is Dermapen Treatment?
A Dermapen treatment is a form of micro-needling. This process kickstarts the body’s own natural repair processes. Your skin will undergo a gradual change over time. Old skin cells on the surface of your face will be replaced by regenerated cells from within. Not only that, but the procedure also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. These two proteins can make your skin firmer and more radiant.
What Is PRP?
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is used in a wide variety of medical application. The plasma is found in your blood and contains a number of natural growth factors and stem cells. When used on your face, the plasma regenerates skin cells and helps to heal your skin.
The PRP treatment process starts with the collection of a blood sample. Blood is drawn from your arm and spun in a centrifuge. This machine spins the blood at high speeds to separate its various components. The platelet-rich plasma is collected and refined for use.
The Benefits of Combining Treatments
Combining these two treatment methods can help you see great results that last. You’ll be able to take advantage of all the benefits they both offer. First, the platelet-rich plasma will be collected and prepared. It is then applied evenly to the surface of your skin. The Dermapen treatment immediately follows. The PRP will act as a lubricant on your skin for the Dermapen wand. However, in the process, the PRP serum will be pushed deep into the layers of your skin. The various growth factors will have direct access to your skin cells and can start the rejuvenation process. This makes it more effective at providing you with the results you’re after.
