What is microneedling?
Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, has quickly become our most popular service. It is an anti-aging facial that stimulates collagen. The CIT Facial reduces acne scars, wrinkles, enlarged pores, stretch marks and improves tone and texture.* An automated microneedling pen, the SkinPen™, is used to make micro-injuries into the skin to produce collagen and elastin.
At Pellé Medical Spa, we combine microneedling with natural growth factors for even better results. During this process, we will take a small sample of your blood, which is then spun in a centrifuge to separate the growth factors. Once this unique mixture is obtained, the enriched plasma is applied to the desired treatment areas. The enriched plasma contains proteins and molecules that provide nutrients to the skin’s cells, making it a natural, healthy way to improve aging skin.*
What are the benefits?
The benefits of microneedling with growth factors are a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging.* SkinPen™ also has a positive effect on hyperpigmentation as well as on hypopigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks and generally creates a fresher appearance or glow to the skin.*
What can I expect during the procedure?
After we draw blood and create the enriched plasma, we will add it to theSkinPen™. A sterile needle-tip containing 12 tiny micro-needles is then attached to the SkinPen™. Your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of topical gel to your skin and select the appropriate setting based on your unique needs. Next, in a single motion, the pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered. The procedure takes 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.
Is there any downtime?
Immediately after the treatment, you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the SkinPen™ setting used and the number of overlapping passes your skincare professional performs. On average, patients are red up to 2 to 4 days. Some patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours. Utilizing our Jan Marini line of quality skin care products, can help to speed up the healing process.
