MicroPen Facial®

The MicroPen Facial® is here.

It’s the latest in skin rejuvenation designed to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, pore size and sun damage; it’s also a powerful solution for those who’ve been troubled by acne scarring, stretch marks or sun spots.

The MicroPen Facial® device employs one dozen, tiny micro-needles to penetrate the skin. Depending upon the patient’s needs, the depth of the needles are controlled based upon desired results. For example, less depth is needed for exfoliation than treating rolling acne scars.

Also, at Plano Aesthetics we incorporate the use of PRP, or Platelet-Rich Plasma, to promote healing. PRP comes directly from you. Your blood is drawn, spun in a centrifuge, and the platelet-rich plasma is separated. During the Micropen Facial®, this is spread over the treated area to help regenerate collagen.

The downtime for this new exciting procedure is minimal. Only 1-2 days.

Patient Benefits:

  • Reduces Lines & Wrinkles
  • Reduces Rolling, Pick and Boxcar Acne Scars
  • Reduces Hyper and Hypo Pigmentation
  • Reduces Enlarged Pores
  • Reduces Brown Spots & Sun Damage
  • Stimulates Collagen
  • Skin appears Younger, Tighter and More Radiant

What to Expect:

Lidocaine, a topical numbing creme, is applied to a clean face. The patient’s blood is drawn, spun down, and the platelet-rich plasma is separated and prepared for use. The numbing cream will be removed, the area is treated with one pass with the MicroPen, and the PRP is spread over the treated area to promote healing and trigger collagen growth. The procedure takes about 15-30 minutes. The MicroPen will feel like sandpaper or like a cat’s tongue. The patient will experience mild redness, maybe some mild pin-hole bleeding. Social downtime is minimal. Only 1-2 days. The patient may experience redness for 2-4 days, and will enjoy the results of having great looking, tighter and more toned skin.
