What is Microneedling with PRP?

Regardless of age, our skin is susceptible to damage caused by our environment. These changes occur in the texture of our skin and its tight/supple appearance. These changes can begin to occur as early as in our 20s. Along with this, other skin conditions such as acne, sun damage, enlarged pores, and stretch marks also take toll on our skin quality. MaVie’s microneedling with PRP can rejuvenate the skin by reducing scars, improving collagen production and retexturizing the skin for a smoother look and feel.

Microneedling with platelet rich plasma uses components of your blood to help rejuvenate your skin. The process stimulates the body’s ability to produce collagen, by rolling ultrafine needles gently over the surface of the skin.

The application of platelets (PRP), makes an ordinary microneedling procedure much more effective as they help the skin heal quickly from the micro-wounds caused during the procedure. The proteins and growth factors that are abundantly present in the PRP help the tissues repair itself.

Once microinjury occurs from microneedling, the PRP is then applied to encourage cell reproduction and collagen production. The result is firmer, brighter, and rejuvenated skin.

Microneedling with PRP is used successfully on

• Acne scars
• Wrinkles and fine lines
• Hyperpigmentation
• Sun damage
• Large pores
• Uneven skin tone
• Surgical scars

SkinPen

The SkinPen is the first, FDA-approved, state-of-the-art microneedling device with indication to treat facial acne scars. The SkinPen creates controlled micro-injuries with minimal cellular damage which stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing process. For best results, at least three to six treatments that are spaced a month apart are typically recommended. Best results can be seen 4-6 weeks after your last session. SkinPen works on all skin types and softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as acne scars. The entire procedure takes 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the area to be treated.

During MaVie’s SkinPen procedure, your medical professional will apply a topical anesthetic to ensure your comfort during the process. During your treatment, your aesthetic provider at MaVie will take note of what areas are most bothersome to ensure this treatment is tailored to your needs. Your medical professional will discuss post-treatment care based on level of intensity and depth needed for your treatment. However, this procedure has minimal downtime and you will be able to resume most of your usual activities immediately after. It is important to remember infection control after any treatment involving micro-injury to the skin.

The Morpheus 8 Treatment
(Microneedling with RF)

The Morpheus 8 is an FDA-approved Subdermal Adipose Remodeling Device or SARD. This device combines two treatments – microneedling and radiofrequency to address superficial and deep tissues of the face, neck and body. The Morpheus 8 Radiofrequency is known to stimulate and encourage collagen production in the skin through its microinjuries with microneedling. The energy used during RF treatment helps to remodel the skin and is safe and effective when it comes to achieving desired results.

The device is also used for skin laxity and stubborn adipose tissue due to its complex design of combining both mechanical and thermal injury to the skin. With the ability to adjust the depth of penetration based on the type of results we are trying to achieve, you can expect greater results with Morpheus 8. Through a customized treatment plan at MaVie, we will determine with you, how many total sessions will be anticipated in order to achieve the results you are looking for.

Morpheus 8 is the perfect solution for you if you want to reduce:

• Acne or acne scars
• Poor skin texture
• Sun damage
• Deep lines and creases
• Mild sagging or jowls
• Enlarged pores
• Stretch marks

What to Expect During Your Treatment

At MaVie it’s vital for us that you are comfortable. Our team of medical professionals are well trained and will ensure the best of comfort during the procedure. Utilizing topical anesthetic ointment, cryogen cold air and optional Nitrous Oxide, our ultimate goal is to ensure greater comfort at MaVie.

Your Recovery

You might experience some redness and tenderness in the treated area. However, these are common side effects of microneedling with RF, and they will disappear over the next few days. It is common to experience dry flaky skin as cellular turnover occurs. This is a great sign of healing and is managed with an appropriate moisturizer. It is important to avoid sun exposure for the first week as much as possible and also use a broad-spectrum sunscreen whenever you go out. This is important to prevent post-procedure hyperpigmentation.

Results

You will notice the first signs of improvement within a few weeks of the first treatment. The best results will be visible in two or three months after your last session. Typically optimal results are seen with a series of three treatments spaced at 4-6 weeks apart.
