MicroPen with PRP

Harness the power of your own body 

Fine lines and scars may be an inevitable part of life, but they don’t have to be permanent signs of your age or reminders of struggles with acne, broadcasting your past to everyone who sees them (including you, whenever you face the mirror). Microneedling at Skin Care Fort Worth has proven to be an effective treatment for not just fading these aesthetic annoyances, but getting your own skin to help itself.
The technology driving this treatment has led many people to create numerous devices and techniques. Dr. Peter Damico chose the Eclipse MicroPen® for Skin Care Fort Worth, bringing a reliable, effective solution to men and women seeking improvement to the overall appearance of their skin. 

What is PRP?

Anyone’s skin can benefit from a little boost now and then, which makes revitalizing treatments with our MicroPen so effective. When handled by an experienced provider, such as Dr. Peter Damico, a rejuvenating session can make men and women alike look refreshed, renewed, and relaxed. There are a variety of products that can do this, but there’s one in particular that comes from a patient’s own body: PRP. Fort Worth-area residents can enjoy the benefits of this—and learn more about it—at Skin Care Fort Worth.
Known as platelet-rich plasma, PRP is injected to stimulate natural healing processes in the skin. Because each patient’s treatment comes from his or her own body, concerns over allergic reactions are very low. While the process involves both extracting blood and injecting elements of that blood back into the body, side effects are minimal, and there is no recovery or down time needed.

How does PRP work?

The PRP process starts with Dr. Damico taking some of a patient’s blood. This blood will then be spun in a centrifuge to separate out the most valuable components. The platelets in the blood—cells that facilitate clotting and healing—are concentrated. Once properly processed, the result is a platelet-rich plasma.
When this PRP is injected into the skin, the platelets continue to perform their designated roles as health-improving cells. Thanks to their concentration in the plasma, and to the carefully selected areas where they are injected, their introduction can stimulate renewed collagen production and tissue regeneration. The healing can smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, even out tone and pigmentation, and give skin an overall healthy and youthful glow.
While PRP can be used as a standalone technique, it pairs well with other treatments—especially those that create miniature wounds intended to promote rejuvenation through healing. Microneedling and PRP work particularly well together, as both stimulate collagen production. Each treatment’s benefits enhances the other’s. PRP has been used for years as a medical resource, with surgeons using it to help resolve tendon, ligament, and muscle problems. Its collection and delivery is handled in much the same way in medical and cosmetic settings.

How does Microneedling with PRP work?

When something pierces your skin, your body begins healing that area. A very small wound, however, does little more than prompt your system to kick into gear for repairs. Microneedling works off of this principle by creating numerous tiny channels in the skin, sending the targeted area into a heightened state of subsurface activity.
Most essentially, the treatment induces the formation of new collagen, which is a flexible and supportive substance found throughout the body. Microneedling also boosts elastin production. These elements help to give skin its youthful resilience and structure. 
As collagen and elastin creation increases, aesthetic problems decrease. 

What can Microneedling with PRP treat?

Microneedling is ideal for:
  • Softening fine lines
  • Reducing the appearance of acne scars
  • Improving overall skin vitality
It may also improve the appearance of pigmentation irregularities, other scars, and stretch marks.
Skin Care Fort Worth uses microneedling exclusively for the face. Anyone seeking to address skin on their neck or decolletage, as well as arms, legs, back, abdomen, or hands can talk to Dr. Damico or Laurel about other types of treatments available.

What can I expect from a Microneedling with PRP treatment?

The automated Eclipse MicroPen® makes a microneedling session a quick endeavor.
The device glides over skin with the aid of a topical gel, moving in one fluid motion to cover all of the targeted area. As it moves, incredibly tiny points enter the skin, creating a sensation sometimes described as light vibrations.
These channels start the collagen and elastin production, as well as allow effective penetration of beneficial serums and creams, further improving skin health and appearance.
The entire process, including the application of a numbing compound to make the treatment virtually painless, should take no longer than an hour. This is followed by a day of red skin in the treated area. The results will become increasingly apparent in the weeks after a session, with collagen production continuing to improve the skin for up to six months. For ideal results, clients may need to receive two or three treatments with six to eight weeks between each session. The exact number of treatments needed varies from client to client, and is determined according to a person’s unique skin type and condition, as well as their ultimate goals. The projected treatment plan can be discussed during your consultation.
