We practice PRP therapy that uses this rich platelet portion of your blood to promote healing of ligaments, tendons, joints, muscles, skin and more. We also carry the SkinPen ® Precision System for microneedling treatments.
What is it, and how does it work?
SkinPen ® Precision System is a minimally invasive, micro-needling device intended for use on facial acne scars. The SkinPen Precision System is comprised of a reusable motor unit designed to be attached to sterile, disposable cartridges that house 14 micro- needles (~250 um diameter) on a reciprocating head which when activated and placed properly against the skin can create hundreds to thousands of “micro” punctures into the skin.
The procedure creates many microscopic punctures in the skin’s outer layers. As these punctures heal, the remodeling process works to improve the appearance of facial acne scars.
SkinPen Precision’s ® patent-pending cartridge design inhibits the entrance of fluids into the device which along with the BioSheath and routine cleaning help to prevent potential cross-contamination of the motor unit between uses. It is for prescription use only.
Who is a candidate?
The SkinPen Precision System is intended to be used as a treatment to improve the appearance of facial acne scars in adults aged 22 years or older. The SkinPen Precision System’s clinical study was conducted on adult men and women ranging from light to very dark skin (Fitzpatrick skin types).
