PRF Microneedling

Correct Complexion Concerns With Microneedling

We frequently recommend microneedling for patients looking to improve complextion concerns, such as acne scars, pigmentation issues, and texture irregularities. Our preferred device for this treatment is the SkinPen, an award-winning device known for its high RPM rating, enabling it to make 7,000 micro-punctures per minute. These tiny perforations, created by the SkinPen’s medical-grade stainless steel microneedles, trigger your skin’s natural wound-healing process, including inflammation, proliferation, and remodeling. Research has demonstrated increased collagen type I and III following the treatment. Consequently, patients can expect a more even skin tone, smaller pores, better hydration, and enhanced collagen growth, leading to a smoother and more youthful complexion.

Amp Collagen with PRF Microneedling

You might be familiar with Platelet-Rich Plasma Microneedling, often called the Vampire Facial. At Aluma, we offer a more advanced alternative: Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) Microneedling. Like PRP, PRF involves drawing a small sample of blood and spinning it in a centrifuge to separate the plasma from the red blood cells. This plasma is then microneedled into the skin.

The main difference is in the centrifugation process. PRF is spun at a lower speed, producing a plasma richer in fibrin, a vital bioactive protein for wound healing. Fibrin acts as a scaffold, holding platelets in place longer and allowing them to release growth factors more effectively into the skin. These growth factors promote tissue regeneration, resulting in long-lasting skin benefits such as increased collagen production, smoother texture, reduced wrinkles and scarring, and improved pigmentation.

FAQ: PRF Microneedling

Who is an ideal candidate for PRF microneedling

PRF microneedling is an excellent choice for those seeking to enhance their skin texture naturally. At Aluma, we utilize the SkinPen, an FDA-approved microneedling device renowned for stimulating collagen production, reducing fine lines, and treating acne scars. This minimally invasive treatment is ideal for individuals who prefer a natural approach to skin rejuvenation.

Is PRF microneedling painful?

Before your treatment, we apply a prescription compounded lidocaine cream so you will feel little discomfort during your treatment. 

Is PRF microneedling safe?

Yes. SkinPen’s patented – and single-use – sterile microneedle cartridge is built with safety in mind. SkinPen is also surrounded by a custom-designed bio-sheath that acts as a barrier to prevent cross-contamination between procedures. 

How much does PRF microneedling cost?

At Aluma, PRF microneedling is $495. Without PRF, the treatment cost is $375. Adding the neck area is a $50 additional cost as is adding the décolletage.

Before & After Care

How should I prepare for my PRF microneedling treatment?

Avoid retinol, hydroquinone, and topical acids for a week prior to your treatment. Additionally, some clients prefer to arrive for their appointment with a clean, makeup-free face. However, our staff always cleanses the treatment area before application.

What can I expect after the treatment?

After PRF microneedling, your skin will appear red, resembling a moderate sunburn, for about 8-10 hours. Once the PRF serum dries, your face may feel tight. To alleviate this discomfort and enhance the benefits of the PRF serum, we provide our patients with a specialized hydrating mask. By the next day, your skin will have a pink hue that can be easily covered with a tinted SPF.

What is the downtime and aftercare associated with PRF microneedling?

Post-treatment, your skin will be moderately red, signifying the inflammatory response we want to see for optimal results. This redness will subside within 24 hours. In the following days, your skin may lightly flake or peel. You will notice a nice overall glow around day five.
