About microneedling

Following a good home skin care routine is necessary, but occasionally, you may want to step it up with a professional microneedling treatment with SkinPen. SkinPen® Precision by Crown Aesthetics is the first FDA-cleared device clinically proven to improve the appearance of wrinkles of the neck and facial acne scars 

 SkinPen creates controlled micro-injuries to the skin that results in the production of new collagen and elastin. The micro-injuries stimulate your skin to repair itself naturally by rebuilding the connective matrix below the surface. Microneedling can be used with or without PRP- Platelet-Rich Plasma. 

Personalized to meet the needs and concerns of your skin concerns, our team, led by plastic surgeon Dr. Raj Sawh-Martinez, suggests regular professional microneedling treatments for Orlando, FL patients to keep their complexion clear and healthy. After a consultation to assess both visible and hidden skin damage, the appropriate products and techniques will be chosen to treat your complexion. To further rejuvenate and pamper your skin, upgrade your microneedling treatment by adding an additional procedure, like a chemical peel or an injectable filler. Schedule an appointment for a microneedling treatment with SkinPen at Craniofacial & Aesthetic Plastic Surgery to boost the health and beauty of your complexion to a higher level.

Platlet-Rich Plasma

 PRP is short for platelet-rich plasma. Your blood contains platelets which stimulate growth factors and stem cells that promote healing and rejuvenation. Platelet-rich plasma is often referred to as liquid gold when it comes to your aesthetic skin goals. It is safe and effective for adults and teens of all skin types, and adjustments can be made to meet each patient's individual needs and goals.

What to Expect from microneedling with prp

 

A topical anesthetic gel is applied to the specific treatment area. A vial of your blood is then drawn and spun in a centrifuge to separate out the PRP. This PRP is massaged into your skin before, during, and after a microneedling treatment. Microneedling creates micro channels in the skin that allow PRP to penetrate the layers of skin deeply & stimulates collagen production. It is very important that after your treatment you avoid applying any irritating topical treatments with active ingredients as your skin uses this time to recover. 

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost?
The cost of your microneedling procedure will depend on if it is with or without PRP and whether you add on any additional services. There are cost savings when purchased as part of one of our packages. During your initial consult, your provider will listen to your needs and examine your skin concerns before designing your custom treatment plan. Once this is done, we can estimate your total cost. 

How long is each treatment and how often should I schedule a treatment?  

The entire session takes about 1 hour. There is minimal downtime with some patients experiencing redness lasting 1-2 days. There may also be some minor, pin-prick type bleeding. Depending upon the individual and the treatment area, 3-6 sessions are usually required for best results, spaced 2-4 weeks apart. 

How can I maintain my results at home?
Developing a good skin care routine at home can help extend the results of your skin care treatment. After your treatment, we can suggest products that further enhance the appearance and health of your skin. It is also smart to use protection in the sun (sunscreen and hats) and avoid lengthy exposure to UV rays.
