Will it work for me?
SkinPen is a highly effective, clinically proven treatment that works for all Fitzpatrick Skin Types I-VI. SkinPen causes no damage to the skin and can be successfully used for years.
How often should I microneedle?
Your personalized treatment plan can be determined during a consultation and will depend on the areas you are trying to fix, how many, and the size of those areas. Microneedling with PRF can be repeated from 4 to 6 weeks with at least 3 treatments spaced over a four-week period. Some scar reduction may require 3 to 6 treatments.
Are there other PRF treatments?
Besides Microneedling with PRF, Sculpt MD also offers PRF Under Eye Filler, a 100% natural alternative to dermal fillers, and PRF Hair Restoration. Learn more about these PRF treatments and how they can support your aesthetic goals in a consultation.
How much blood is taken?
Typically, less than two ounces of blood are taken for this procedure, drawn from a vein in the arm.
Does microneedling hurt?
Microneedling is not considered a painful treatment, but it can be uncomfortable as the tiny needles create fine punctures within the skin. To help minimize discomfort, numbing cream is applied before the treatment begins.
How much does microneedling with PRF cost?
Microneedling costs depend on the size and the number of areas being treated. Each person’s needs are unique, and the costs are determined during your consultation.
Who should not microneedle?
Patients with skin cancer, sores, skin outbreaks or irritation in the treatment areas should not have microneedling. Additionally, patients who are taking Accutane, have bleeding disorders or allergies to stainless steel or anesthetics, are pregnant or nursing should not have microneedling.
What is recovery like?
Patients are free to return to work or their usual routines within 24 hours of their treatment. More extensive treatments may require 2-3 days for the skin to fully heal.
