From Neck Wrinkles to Acne Scars: The Beauty of Skinpen Microneedling with PRP
Microneedling with PRP uses tiny needles and growth factors from your own blood to stimulate collagen growth and create radiant, younger-looking skin. If you’re bothered by face/neck wrinkles or acne scars, you may be a strong candidate.

If changes in your facial or neck complexion have you shying away from cameras or mirrors, you may want to consider SkinPen microneedling with PRP. This minimally invasive treatment is natural, relying on substances in your blood and your skin’s own healing functions. Conveniently, it can be done in a series of short, in-office appointment with minimal downtime.

The skilled dermatology team at Paviol Dermatology in Charlotte, NC, is pleased to offer pain-free microneedling with PRP to achieve younger-looking, revitalized skin without the hassle of downtime of surgery. 

How SkinPen microneedling with PRP works

SkinPen uses your body’s own blood and healing capabilities to bring about more radiant skin. During your treatment, your provider will create microscopic punctures in your skin with a medical grade SkinPen device. We enhance that process, known as microneedling, by including Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP).

The PRP we inject comes from small amounts of your own blood. After your sample is drawn is processed by a special device called a centrifuge, and the resulting “liquid gold” platelet-rich extract is used in the treatment area to stimulate healing processes. 

PRP prompts the growth of new collagen and elastin following microneedling, both of which play an important role in keeping your skin supple and smooth. This is important from an aging standpoint, given that your skin creates less of both proteins over time.

Benefits of SkinPen microneedling with PRP treatment package

While individual results vary, we find that SkinPen microneedling with PRP helps rejuvenate the skin, leading to benefits such as:

  • More even skin tone
  • Fewer facial lines and wrinkles
  • Firmer, tighter skin
  • Reduced acne scars
  • Reduced neck wrinkles
  • Smoother skin on your face and neck

Once your results set in, you’ll still look like you — only a younger, better rested version. These results start to unfold within a few weeks of your treatment, with continued, gradual benefits over additional weeks or months. Acne scars may diminish gradually over the course of nine months.

Good candidates for SkinPen microneedling with PRP

If you’re bothered by signs of aging, scars, or other inconsistencies in your skin, you may be a good candidate for SkinPen microneedling with PRP. After going over your beauty goals and medical history and examining your skin, our specialists will determine if this treatment is ideal for you and your skin goals.

You may not be a good candidate if you have a medical condition, such as uncontrolled rosacea, eczema, or a blood disorder. If you’re currently experiencing an acne flareup, we may recommend waiting until it’s over before scheduling your treatment.
