If you are self-conscious about the appearance of wrinkles and lines, aging skin, or see your skin losing its fresh, supple quality, SkinPen microneedling with PRP can work wonders. Microneedling creates tiny controlled injuries in the skin to send a message to your body to produce more collagen. When combined with PRP (platelet-rich plasma), the rejuvenating effect is remarkable. At Aesthera, we serve patients for microneedling in Pismo Beach, and the greater San Luis Obispo and Santa Maria, CA area. Our skincare specialists understand that wellness comes from within, and with this applied to our PRP microneedling, you experience a new approach to skin renewal.

What is SkinPen microneedling with PRP? 

SkinPen is the first FDA-cleared microneedling device that, when applied to your skin, causes tiny micro-injuries, stimulating your body’s natural wound healing responses to restore skin quality. Creating a new revolutionary treatment for microneedling treatments for those in the San Luis Obispo area. 

PRP is created from a small blood sample and applied to your skin before, during and after your SkinPen microneedling treatment for even faster healing and collagen production. The growth factors in PRP trigger natural skin regeneration at a truly extraordinary level.

What can I expect during SkinPen microneedling with PRP? 

During your SkinPen microneedling with PRP treatment in the greater Santa Maria area, your Aesthera skincare specialist will start by drawing a small amount of your blood to create the PRP. The blood is placed into a centrifuge to separate the plasma. Your body has the natural capacity to regenerate, and PRP is one of the most exciting developments in natural skin rejuvenation.

During your SkinPen microneedling session, our skincare specialist will begin by applying a gentle numbing gel to ensure you are comfortable. The PRP is applied to the face prior to the SkinPen as the microneedling is performed over the PRP. The PRP is also added as the treatment progresses, and then applied again when the treatment is over. Nothing is more attractive than full, youthful skin, and this treatment delivers.

What can I expect after my SkinPen Microneedling with PRP treatment?

After your SkinPen microneedling treatment with PRP, we will apply a cooling face mask and finish with a soothing balm to your skin. Recovery time is very minimal, and you can return to your usual activities immediately or the next day. You must not touch or clean your skin for several hours, and you should avoid the sun and sweating (such as with strenuous activity) for 72 hours. There may be some redness or slight irritation for one to three days, and while you will want to avoid applying some products, you can apply a light foundation or powder. 

The full results of SkinPen microneedling with PRP will become apparent within about a month as collagen production is boosted. While you need some patience, the results are well worth the wait.
