It is recommended for acne, hyperpigmentation, scars, wrinkles, and sun damage. Men and women who opt for microneedling will see dramatic results with minimal downtime. Additionally, it can be enhanced with platelet-rich plasma or PRP for even better results. Here we will explain the procedures to help you decide which treatment is best for your aesthetic needs.
SkinPen Microneedling in Portland, Oregon
Knott Street Aesthetics can help you get rid of acne scars and attain healthier skin. We offer SkinPen microneedling treatments as it is the first device cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, clinically proven to safely and effectively treat facial acne scars.
A minimally-invasive procedure, microneedling uses tiny needles to create micro-injuries or channels into the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin. The entire puncturing process encourages flow of oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to your facial skin so new skin cells can be created. The end result? Smoother, firmer, and more even-toned skin.
Microneedling also treats fine lines and improves skin’s texture, tone and pigment. It’s not a painful process and your doctor will also apply topic medicine to reduce discomfort and help you stay relaxed throughout the treatment. The results of the treatment may be observed within a few weeks but to see dramatic results, multiple sessions are recommended along with complementing treatments.
If you’re ready to say goodbye to your wrinkles and acne scars, schedule a consultation with us.
PRP-enhanced Microneedling Treatment in Portland Oregon
Want even better results? Microneedling can be paired with PRP to further enhance treatment outcomes.
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, a natural product derived from the patient’s own blood used to help tissue heal and help grow new cells and hair follicles. This ability comes from the growth factors that are abundant in PRP, meaning that this natural substance taps into your body’s own healing mechanisms. During treatment, a small blood sample is extracted from the patient and placed in the centrifuge to separate the PRP from other blood products.
During PRP Microneedling treatment, your doctor will first use a microneedling device to prick your facial skin.
Then, a PRP injection is injected into the skin. The activation of platelets releases the growth factors and other proteins that supercharge the healing process and skin renewal.
PRP microneedling is ideal for blemishes on your face or body. It also treats:
– acne scars
– wrinkles and fine lines
– sun damage
– large pores
– uneven skin texture
