Dermapen | Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Serving Mansfield, Arlington, Fort Worth, and Dallas
At Mansfield Cosmetic Surgery Center, we NOW offer Dermapen – Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) collagen induction therapy (CIT) to patients in Mansfield, Arlington Texas, and Dallas, Fort Worth.
The Dermapen, an FDA-approved device, is the newest and cutting-edge micro-needling system for skin rejuvenation, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, improvement in abnormal pigmentation, improvement of stretch marks and the treatment of facial acne scars, surgical scars, and keloid scars. It was awarded “First Place” as the Best Professional Skin Rejuvenation Device at the 2012 Aesthetic Show.
Dermapen is a unique hand-held device that uses an automatic spring-loaded disposable needle with a vibrating stamp-like motion that creates tiny micro-needle holes in your skin. This procedure naturally stimulates the production of collagen with minimal epidermal damage or trauma. The Dermapen technology is as effective as fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing but provides a shorter recovery period without thermal healing caused by laser skin resurfacing. Most importantly, the use of a disposable one-time needle cartridge means no risk for cross-contamination to ensure the highest in sterility and patient safety.
Dermapen has an additional advantage by acting as a “dermal infusion device” by topically delivering medical-grade cosmeceuticals directly into the dermis through micro channels to accelerate the healing process and promote collagen development. One such product we use is platelet rich plasma or PRP that is separated from your own blood.
The Dermapen | PRP facial resurfacing treatment is an in-office procedure performed by Dr. Michael Thornton that takes 30 to 60 minutes to complete, depending upon the area(s) treated along with the preparation of platelet rich plasma. To minimize discomfort, we apply a topical numbing gel prior to the procedure and your post procedure downtime lasts a few short days.
At Mansfield Cosmetic Surgery Center, we offer single treatments or package specials with or without the addition of platelet rich plasma (PRP). You will see spectacular results from one single treatment but the best results will be obtained from our multi-procedure packages.
We also offer an “Acne Scar Package” that combine one session of PRP injections directly into the acne scars with three Dermapen treatments over 6 weeks. Good for all skin types.
