Dermapen – Platelet Rich Plasma
Dermapen microneedling is considered the latest and cutting-edge micro-needling system for skin rejuvenation and PRP Facials, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars and improvement in areas of pigmentation disruption. Dermapen microneedling is a unique hand-held device that uses a vibrating stamp-like motion to create tiny micro-needle holes in your skin, thereby naturally stimulating the production of collagen.
One advantage the Dermapen has over other skin resurfacing procedures is by acting as a “dermal infusion device”. Consequently, we use it to deliver your topically applied platelet rich plasma or PRP directly into your skin through the micro channels created by the fine microneedles.
Platelet rich plasma or PRP is obtained by separating your own blood using a centrifuge in to its separate layers of blood and plasma. Platelet rich plasma contains growth factors that accelerate the healing process and promote collagen development.
Our providers at Mansfield Cosmetic Surgery Center specifically uses the Cellenis ® PRP proprietary system that prepares and separates your blood into optimized and high-concentrated platelet rich plasma using a unique blood and plasma separation gel and process.
Therefore, a Dermapen PRP or “blood facial” treatment is an in-office procedure that takes 30 minutes to complete due to the preparation and application of our proprietary platelet rich plasma.
Dermapen microneedling with PRP is available at Mansfield Cosmetic Surgery Center for patients living near Mansfield, Arlington, Dallas, and Fort Worth area. To make an appointment with our Aesthetic Nurse Practitioner, Brenna Merrifield APRN, please call 817-477-9000 or contact us online.
