Suite Six Medical Aesthetics is proud to offer PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Therapy combined with Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) to address patients’ anti-aging needs. PRP Therapy uses the platelets and growth factors of the patient to treat a variety of conditions through injections or collagen induction therapy, including skin rejuvenation, scar revision, hair restoration, and sexual wellness. Not all PRP and collagen induction therapy devices are the same, which is why we have partnered with the best-in-class technologies on the market, including:
Magellan TruPRP is one of only two FDA-approved machines available
The Magellan® Platelet Separator is unique in its ability to concentrate and customize the PRP product. The system can be programmed to deliver a volume of 3 – 10 ml from each processing cycle. This allows us to customize the platelet concentration per ml within the PRP. The Magellan® is approved for three processing cycles per disposable, allowing for a maximum of 30 ml of product. Fully automated and customizable, the MAGELLAN® delivers the PRP directly into a syringe and ready for injection, significantly decreasing the potential for contamination and patient infection. The use of Arteriocyte’s MAGELLAN® and concentrated PRP accelerates the repair and healing cascade and can also stimulate the growth of new hair follicles. There are also applications for both men’s and women’s sexual wellness.
Also referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy
Collagen P.I.N. is used by creating a controlled injury into the skin’s dermal & epidermal junction which induces growth factors and new collagen and elastin. This process causes much less damage to the epidermis than dermal rolling, lasers or any other ablative treatment thus protecting the skin’s cell growth making for quicker healing and superior patient outcomes.
Questions and Answers
How many Collagen P.I.N. treatments will I need?
Typically a series of 3-6 treatments is recommended, depending upon your area of correction or concern. Your skincare professional will ultimately determine a treatment schedule based on your individual goals and desires. Treatments are usually spaced in 4 week intervals. Patients with deep wrinkles, advanced sun damage, stretch marks, or any type of scars, usually require 6 or more treatments to achieve the desired results.
Will the Collagen P.I.N. procedure hurt?
Prior to your treatment your medical provider will apply a topical numbing agent. A majority of patients report feeling very little to no pain at all once the agent has been applied.
How long will my Collagen P.I.N. results last?
Collagen P.I.N. produces results through the stimulation of growth factors and collagen, thereby, promoting new cells to surface. As our skin ages our collagen production naturally slows down. Your overall result will last longer when using an at home skin care regimen that includes a daily retinol product. Your medical provider is best suited to make this recommendation. New collagen and elastin formation has been documented to still be present as much one year later from just a single treatment.
How long will it take for me to see results from my Collagen P.I.N. treatment?
A majority of patients see results after just one treatment. Individual results vary depending on individual skin health. Most commonly, patients report seeing positive changes as soon as 1-2 weeks after the first treatment. However, change is normally noted within a few days.
What will I look like after my treatment?
Collagen P.I.N. is considered a no downtime treatment. Immediately after your treatment your skin will look moderately red such as a sunburn. Your medical provider will recommend a post treatment skincare regimen based on your individual skin. This will also help with any redness you might experience due to the treatment.
Who can be treated and on what areas of the body?
Collagen P.I.N. can safely treat all skin types to address a variety of concerns. Most all areas of the body can be treated unless your medical provider determines otherwise.
