SKINPEN® with PRP
For some patients, combining the SkinPen® microneedling treatment with the application of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can enchance the treatment results. This super rejuvenating booster is designed to use your body’s own growth factors to help the skin from the inside out.
PRP is used in many medical fields as a tool to assist in tissue regeneration, wound healing, scar revision, skin rejuvenation, and even hair loss. Our blood is made of two main parts: red blood cells and plasma. Plasma, the action ingredient in this treatment, contains white blood cells and platelets. Platelets are typically responsible for your blood’s ability to form a clot after a cut, but they also contain growth factors, which act as messengers to signal various cell types to carry out their designated function. When used with SkinPen®, growth factor-rich PRP helps repair blood vessels, promote cell growth and wound healing, and stimulate collagen production for younger looking skin.
PRP FOR SCAR REVISION
Dr. Robert DeFatta has dedicated his entire 15-year career to the treatment of disorders and cosmetic concerns of the face, head and neck and his scope of practice includes revision of scars in any location from the neck up. When a scar is located in the scalp, it carries the added cosmetic concern of hair loss within the scar and can be challenging to address. Various types of scalp scars can result in this hair loss problem such as those from trauma, burns, facelift or brow lift surgery, and hair transplant donor site surgery. Dr. DeFatta may recommend improving the appearance of the scar by removing it, relocating/reorienting it, or disguising it to minimizie its prominence. He will tailor a treatment plan based on various factors including the scar’s size and location, associated hair loss pattern, your scarring potential and other medical and cosmetic considerations.
