SkinPen Microneedling and PRP (platelet-rich plasma) are two popular treatments offered at medspas for skin rejuvenation and anti-aging. Here’s what you need to know:
While both products are similar in their use and effects, some differences exist. Dysport works faster than Botox, with some patients noticing a difference in their appearance within two to three days. On the other hand, Botox may take up to a week to show results.
Another difference between the two products is that Dysport spreads to a wider area than Botox. This can be beneficial in treating larger areas of the face.
Botox and Dysport are safe and effective treatments when administered by a qualified professional. They are minimally invasive and require no downtime, making them a popular choice for individuals seeking a quick way to improve their appearance.
SkinPen is a medical-grade Microneedling device that uses tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing process and encourage the production of collagen and elastin, which can help improve the skin’s texture, tone, and overall appearance. SkinPen Microneedling effectively reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a natural serum that is extracted from the patient’s own blood. The serum is rich in growth factors and other healing agents, which can help stimulate collagen production and improve the overall health and appearance of the skin. PRP can be combined with SkinPen Microneedling to enhance the results and promote even greater skin rejuvenation.
When combined, SkinPen Microneedling and PRP can provide a range of benefits for individuals looking to improve their skin health and appearance. The treatment can help reduce the signs of aging, improve skin texture and tone, and enhance the overall radiance and glow of the skin.
The treatment may cause some discomfort, but a topical anesthetic can be applied before treatment to help minimize any discomfort.
The number of treatments will depend on the individual’s skin concerns and goals. Usually, a series of 3-6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart is recommended for optimal results.
Results from Microneedling can vary, but most individuals will begin to see improvement in their skin’s texture, tone, and appearance within a few weeks of the first treatment.
Common side effects of Microneedling may include redness, mild swelling, and some sensitivity. However, these side effects are typically mild and subside within a few days following treatment.
