SkinPen Micro-Needling Treatment With PRP or Exosomes

Automated Micro-Needling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is an innovative aesthetic procedure aimed at enhancing the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, and overall skin texture. SkinPen™ is the most advanced medical-grade automated micro-needling device on the market. The micro-needling treatment technique involves the use of tiny needles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin.

At Rejuvenis, we elevate this treatment by combining it with the regenerative abilities of PRP (platelet-rich plasma) or exosomes, offering a comprehensive approach to skin rejuvenation.

Advanced Techniques: PRP or Exosome

Our advanced forms of micro-needling: PRP therapy and exosomes micro-needling techniques are designed to amplify the natural healing and rejuvenating properties of the skin for patients throughout Champaign, IL. Our patients are consistently pleased with their micro-needling results.

  • Micro-Needling with PRP Therapy: This method utilizes the healing power of your own blood. A small blood sample is taken and spun in a centrifuge to isolate the platelet-rich plasma. This plasma, rich in growth factors, is then applied to the skin during micro-needling or injected directly. PRP enhances natural collagen production, promoting tissue regeneration and a youthful skin appearance.
  • Exosome Micro-Needling: Exosomes are extracellular vesicles (small packet of molecules) that play a crucial role in cell communication. In aesthetic treatments, exosomes are used for their regenerative properties. When combined with micro-needling, exosomes can significantly enhance skin rejuvenation, aiding in the repair and regeneration of damaged skin cells. This cutting-edge approach is known for its efficacy in improving skin texture and tone.
