When your skin requires additional collagen stimulation, you will benefit from microneedling acne, also referred to as dermal rolling. Dermal rolling is a household name in Europe, but is just starting to catch on in the US.
This little home care device works like an‘Aerator’ for your skin, helping your active skincare products penetrate deeper into the dermal layers. Clinical studies show that using the dermal roller helps products to penetrate the skin 700x more effectively than the penetration of topical products used alone. Using more therapeutic adjustable lengths, the clinicians at InjectAbility® Clinic apply this modality in the office with the SkinPen® Dermal Rejuvenation system. Known as the “MicroPen” this revolutionary treatment is used in conjunction with stimulatory topical active ingredients for an even more effective collagen stimulation treatment.
This pen is one of the only medical-grade micro-needling devices to address safe practice in sanitation and the efficacy of treatment. With a single-use 12 needle tip that can penetrate up to 2mm depth, this pen has a patented barrier for the safety of the patients. This treatment is effective for treating fine to deep wrinkles, acne, acne scars, minor blemishes, stretch marks, traumatic scars. Additionally, the SkinPen is excellent for increasing skin elasticity and collagen by stimulating fibroblasts in the skin. These stimulated fibroblasts to release growth factors that promote your body’s healing cascade and rebuild the deeper levels of the skin. This process happens over the course of six weeks. We recommend a series of 5 to 7 treatments 6 weeks apart for maximum results.
Combining with PRP
A blood sample is first taken from the patient. When it is spun in a centrifuge, the blood separates into its components, one of which is PRP. Since it contains proteins and natural growth factors, pairing it with microneedling acne increases collagen production and lessens wrinkles. Combining microneedling and PRP is a safe and effective method in skin rejuvenation.
