SkinPen® Micro-Needling, Micro-Needling Facial with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), Micro-Needling with Vitti-Pure and Micro-Needling with Luxir Exosomes. A quick procedure with little downtime and amazing results. With SkinPen®, the days of having to choose between fast, safe or effective are over.

SkinPen is a medical-grade, state-of-the-art microneedling device designed to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and scars on the face and body. SkinPen is the only FDA-approved device for microneedling. SkinPen allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair process by creating thousands of precise micro-injuries in the dermis, automatically triggering new collagen synthesis without causing scar tissue formation.

The natural process of aging causes our body’s systems to slow down, including the process of skin renewal. Although many topicals exist to help against anti-aging, microneedling with SkinPen® serves as a healthy skin alternative that stimulates your skins specific needs. Microneedling is a procedure that awakens your skin. This “awakening” of your skin helps to diminish the signs of aging.

  • Phase I: Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.
  • Phase II: Proliferation. The wound is re-built with new granulation cells, as well as a temporary (type III) collagen and elastin, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.
  • Phase III: Remodeling. The wound has been replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels. The type III collagen in the newly formed tissue is replaced with stronger type I collagen, which can contract to create a tightening or “shrink wrap” effect on the skin.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Who is a candidate?

One of the most exciting things about SkinPen® is that it can be used on all types of skin, on all skin colors. Talk to your SkinPen® provider to discuss specific needs.

What areas of the body can it be used for?

SkinPen®’s variable needle depth allows for versatility and therefore it can be used on many parts of the body, including the face, neck, and décolleté.

How long does the procedure take and will it hurt?

The procedure typically takes 1 hour. Most SkinPen users apply a topical anesthetic to the skin prior to the procedure, which adds an additional 45 minutes to treatment for numbing. This allows for a relatively pain-free experience. Ask your doctor what they do to ensure patient comfort during the micro-needling procedure.

What is the downtime and what side effects should I expect?

The total healing time depends on each individual patient. Most patients have some slight swelling and redness/pinkness (like a mild sunburn) for 2-4 days. Some patients may heal completely in 24 hours. *Individual results will vary.

When will I see results?

Patients may notice healthier looking skin immediately. However, the natural repair process of your own skin continues to progress over the course of several weeks. Damage that has occurred over an extensive period of time won’t disappear immediately. You may not see the final result for up to 3-6 months following your final session. *Individual results will vary.

How many procedures are recommended?

The number of procedures required will be determined by your skincare professional based upon your individual procedure goals and the health of your skin. Most patients receive a series of 3 procedures spaced about 4 weeks apart. Your provider will develop a procedure plan specific to you and also a maintenance plan to help maintain the rejuvenating effects.

Can I wear make-up immediately following a procedure?

Patients typically can resume their normal makeup regimen 2-3 days following their SkinPen® procedure depending on the area and type of procedure performed.

Is there anyone who should not use SkinPen

SkinPen® is not recommended for women who are pregnant or nursing.

SkinPen® users should take precaution when determining whether the SkinPen® procedure is right for them. Consult your provider to discuss whether SkinPen® is right for you.

On its own, microneedling stimulates your body’s collagen production and natural healing processes. Collagen is important for providing your skin with structure, but production declines over time.

PRP is not one-size-fits-all. We are proud to offer PRP treatments using EmCyte, which is known to deliver more growth factors for optimal results. This innovative system delivers higher percentages of viable platelets and growth factors than its competitors, making it a leader in autologous regenerative biologics.

PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a powerful substance packed with natural growth factors. When introduced to a treatment area, it promotes optimal healing and tissue regrowth. By combining microneedling with PRP, collagen production and the healing process is triggered, and the addition of growth factors can offer enhanced skin rejuvenation results.

Microneedling with PRP begins with harvesting PRP, which is a fairly simple process. A traditional blood draw is performed, and the collection is spun in a centrifuge to isolate the golden substance. Microchannels are then created on the skin, and the PRP is massaged and injected into the treatment areas. While your body heals, new tissues are formed, resulting in tighter, firmer skin. The best results are typically enjoyed within a few weeks of treatment.

Vitti Pure is an innovation in collagen stimulation. Similar to PRP Therapy, Vitti Pure provides a natural approach to skin regeneration and repair. Whenever a microneedling treatment is performed, it creates tiny channels on the surface of the skin. These channels create a pathway to the deeper layers. When we apply Vitti-Pure to the skin during the treatment process, your skin can absorb them and utilize their revitalizing and healing properties.

Unlike PRP, Vitti-Pure doesn’t require a blood draw. Vitti-Pure has thousands more growth factors, 28 different types of collagen, hyaluronic acid, elastins, and other naturally occurring proteins and lipids. This makes Vitti-Pure much more effective than PRP. Additionally, as we age, our bodies produce fewer growth factors for healing and regeneration, which PRP Therapy relies on when extracting growth factors for PRP injections. Vitti-Pure stem cells are derived from ethically harvested umbilical cord tissue abundant in young growth factors.

VITTI-PURE Contains:

  • Hyaluronic Acid
  • Elastins
  • 28 Collagen Types
  • 2 Collagen Subtypes
  • Nanoparticles
  • Proteins
  • Lipids
  • Nucleic Acids

If you’ve never heard of exosomes, let alone exosome treatments, we want to introduce you to these anti-aging, skin rejuvenating, hair transforming treatments that can improve your complexion, restore your hair, and help heal orthopedic injuries. Whatever your concern and need, whether it’s skin, hair, or joint-related, our exosome services can help ignite your body’s anti-aging abilities. Post-treatment, you’ll look and feel more youthful and will be a believer in the power of exosomes.

At Anazao MD, we only use the safest (pre-Covid) and highest quality Kimera Luxir Exosomes. When we perform a micro-needling treatment, it creates tiny channels on the surface of the skin. These channels create a pathway to the deeper layers. Then we apply exosomes to the skin during the treatment process so your skin can absorb the exosomes and utilize their revitalizing and healing properties.

Exosomes are extracellular membranous vesicles that perform two important functions in the body. They help the cells communicate and regenerate the body by transporting healing mechanisms to different body areas.

We can use exosomes to deliver different methods of facial rejuvenation. They can help combat the aging process, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, and improve the complexion. Exosomes deliver healing and regenerative properties where they’re needed most to improve your complexion in a completely natural way. Clinical studies show that exosomes can increase skin cell proliferation by up to 80 percent. These stem cell building blocks can:

  • Repair and renew the skin
  • Increase cellular turnover rates
  • Repair skin damage
  • Increase collagen and elastin production
  • Repair sun damage
  • Reverse environmental damage
  • Reverse the aging process

When you undergo one of our micro-needling treatments that use exosomes to heal the skin, you’ll experience many different aesthetic benefits, including:

  • Improvement in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Softening of age spots
  • Brighter skin
  • Hydrated skin
  • Reduction of redness and inflammation
  • Less skin irritation
  • Improvement in skin lesions and scars
  • Improved complexion
  • Reduced pore size

Our exosome facials (sometimes called XO Facials) combine microneedling treatments with exosomes. We also offer XO Facelifts. Our exosome facelifts combine microneedling techniques with exosomes and exosome injections. Exosomes mimic stem cells, so when applied on and injected into the skin, they can restore damaged tissue and increase the rate at which the skin heals and regenerates. Our XO facelifts stimulate collagen production and activate the body’s healing and restorative capabilities.

Microneedling combined with exosome injections create micro-injuries in the skin’s deeper layers. The body responds to those injuries with a healing process that regenerates the skin, creates new tissue, and restores health to the complexion.

This treatment is anti-inflammatory in nature and will deliver immediate and noticeable changes in the skin’s appearance. The results will continue to improve over time as the body makes more collagen and elastin. Our XO facials can:

  • Improve skin health
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Improve the overall appearance of the skin
  • Stimulate collagen and elastin production
  • Reduce the signs of aging
  • Restore youth to the skin
  • Improve skin quality
  • Improve skin tone and texture
  • Preven the occurrence of breakouts
  • Treat hyperpigmentation

These facials are minimally invasive and don’t require the use of any anesthesia. This treatment plan will help hydrate your skin, brighten your complexion, smooth lines and wrinkles, and restore a uniform skin texture. It also helps shrink the pores and tightens the skin. You won’t have to plan around any downtime and can even schedule your treatments during your lunch break and resume your normal daily activities once your treatment is over. If you’re looking to achieve an envy-worthy glow, this is the perfect treatment to schedule before a special event.

Our XO facials and XO facelifts are a good option for those who want to take their skincare routine to the next level but want to use natural and effective anti-aging techniques to do so. If you feel as though your skin looks lackluster and lacks that healthy, youthful glow, micro-needling with exosomes can change everything. It can strengthen and protect your skin, reverse the signs of environmental and pollution-based skin damage and help your skin become the healthiest its ever been. Once you experience an XO Facial or XO Facelift, it will become your new go-to for immediate and long-term results.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Once you begin the micro-needling with exosomes treatment process, you can expect to see some immediate results post-treatment. However, we typically recommend that patients schedule three to five treatment sessions to achieve the best results. Thereafter, yearly maintenance is recommended as a part of your anti-aging skin care plan.
