SkinPen and Plasma Facial Conveniently located to serve Houston, Texas City and Houston County
Improving fine lines, acne, surgical and traumatic scars, SkinPen also improves skin tone and loose skin. Moving a micro-needling device over the surface of your skin, your Rivela Plastic Surgery aesthetician will, with minimal discomfort, create just the right amount of micro-injury to be perceived by the body as micro-damage eliciting your body’s own natural response to trig the production of collagen and elastin. Your body will rejuvenate itself without the downtime associated with other more aggressive treatments. The effects of SkinPen rejuvenation can go on for months after treatment so change can be both immediate (in 6 to 8 days) and improve over time. A series of treatments is usually recommended to achieve optimal results.
SkinPen with Platelet Rich Plasma
SkinPen with PRP at Rivela Plastic Surgery is a unique non-surgical in office facial rejuvenation procedure. Before the treatment, one of our trained medical staff will draw a small amount of your blood from your arm ( just as they would in your general practitioners office) and place it in a centrifuge to extract growth factors. This concentration of growth factors from your own blood called PRP (platelet rich plasma) is combined with a patented hyaluronic dermal filler and then injected into the areas of your face where you are have noticeable expression lines, wrinkles or drooping with a dermpen.
After your treatment you will see an immediate improvement in major fold lines, as well as a smoothing and tightening of the skin. In the days and weeks following your treatment, you will see a healthier glow emerge as blood flow increases. Smoothing and tightening will will continue to improve as collagen is regenerated over the next three to four months. Results of the SkinPen with PRP are typically seen to last 9 months to 2 years.
More information on SkinPen®,….. a highly advanced skin rejuvenation therapy system, used for skin tightening, lifting and rejuvenation, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, improves stretch marks, minimizes pore size, and also improves keloid, surgical and acne scars.
The SkinPen® is a fractional micro-needling device with a unique spring-loaded disposable needle tip that uses an automated, vibrating stamp-like motion that enhances results while offering a more controlled and safer method of treatment than other micro-needling devices, all while causing less epidermal damage.
The SkinPen’s multiple, vibrating needles pierce the skin several hundred times per minute to enhance rejuvenation and is far safer than other methods and because the SkinPen® is fully adjustable, it is easier to treat delicate areas around the nose and eyes.
The automated needling motion minimizes pain and discomfort, while increasing the effectiveness of treatments by promoting an even absorption of topicals into the skin. It is as effective as Fractional Laser Therapy and IPL, but has a significantly shorter recovery period.
SkinPen® offers exceptional results, is easy to use and has better precision and control than leading alternatives, all at a fraction of the cost.
