Microneedling & Plasma Growth Factor Treatment

SkinPen by Crown Aesthetics is the first FDA-cleared microneedling device on the market and is clinically proven to improve the appearance of acne scars in patients ages 22 and older. In as few as three minimally invasive treatments spaced 30 days apart, you can improve your appearance and step out with confidence.

How does microneedling work?

It creates thousands of microchannels that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process, while minimizing cellular damage. This rejuvenates your skin from the inside out. The result is effective remodeling of scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.

There are three phases to the wound-repair process:

  • Phase I: Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to cleanse the wound, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.

  • Phase II: Proliferation. The wound is rebuilt with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.

  • Phase III: Remodeling. The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.

Best of all, SkinPen works. Ninety percent of subjects in the clinical trial would recommend the procedure to family and friends.

Will microneedling work for ME?

Likewise, SkinPen’s mechanical process is less abrasive than harsh peels. In addition, when you properly space treatments that are overseen by a physician, the procedures can be administered year-round.

What is Plasma Growth Factor Treatment? 

Plasma Growth Factor is sourced from your own blood. Historically this was used for orthopedic procedures primarily to help restore some naturally promoted collagen and elastin production in cartilage. Usually that was focused on shoulders and knee joints. Someone had the bright idea to try this on the face. When this was done that the same principles of increased collagen and elastin production held true when used on or in other areas of the body. 

 

Why does this work? 

Plasma contains growth factors, which can increase cell turnover, collagen production, and elastin for firmer, younger-looking skin.

How is a the Plasma Growth Factor Facial done with MICRONEEDLING? 

First, the physician isolates growth factors from the patient's blood.  Then, the provider uses the SkinPen micro-needling device to create multiple micro-punctures --both driving the isolated growth factors into the skin & creating a stimulus for tightening and rejuvenation of the collagen of the face. Next, the provider paints the growth factors onto the micro-punctures so that the growth factors soak into the tissue for further stimulation of tightening and skin rejuvenation. The skin tightens, and glows with color, and scaring softens for a beautiful younger and very natural result.
