Natural Cosmetic Therapy
This is a type of regenerative medicine with the patient’s own blood and uses components called platelets in the blood to rejuvenate the skin.
These growth factors enhance proliferation of fibroblasts and keratinocytes which produce collagen and keratin respectively.
PRP Wrinkle Reduction Therapy is a truly bio-friendly approach to wrinkle reduction and volume augmentation.
Upon activation, PRP is injected into wrinkles for immediate volume augmentation and long lasting collagen regenerating effects. Additionally it enhances the texture and vitality of your skin by creating new blood vessels. Newly created vessels provide vital nutrients to the skin to maintain you.
It is effective particularly for inducing skin regeneration, the therapy is also effective in treating wrinkles, acne marks, sags, and wrinkles on the neck.
The Dermapen is an FDA-approved electronic device that uses multiple fine needles to vertically pierce the skin. This causes collagen remodeling and enhances skin rejuvenation. Unlike needle rollers, Dermapen uses a precisely-controlled stamping method to reach a set depth in the skin while minimizing excess damage to the epidermis.
Dr. Bronner Handwerger is one of the first to be using this with the PRP technology for a cutting edge therapy to restore vitality and your to your skin. Both procedures are used independently, however the combination or dual modality of using the Dermapen's fractional trans-dermal delivery application is being shown here to increase per-cutaneous absorption of the PRP medium. Dermapen's automated modality delivers thousands of micro sized injuries to the dermal layer of the skin. These tiny micro sized 33 gauge needles vibrate and punch vertically into the skin at speeds of up to 25+ times/sec. This controlled “damage” to the skin harnesses the bodies own injury response to rejuvenate and repair the skin through the proven science of collagen stimulation known as collagen induction therapy (CIT).

How many treatments are necessary to achieve a good response?
Improvement is seen with each treatment but a series of 3-5 treatments is best to achieve optimal results.
How far apart are treatments done?
Dermapen treatments can be repeated every 4-6 weeks.
Is Dermapen safe for darker skin types?
Since no melanin-absorbing laser and no heat are involved, the Dermapen is relatively safer than lasers, such as IPL, for darker skin types..
Who performs the treatments?
Dr. Bronner and or his assistant will perform your treatment.
Is Dermapen painful?
Dermapen uses very fine needles and is relatively comfortable. A topical numbing cream is all that is needed.
How long is each treatment?
For a face, each treatment is 30 to 60 minutes.
How is Dermapen different than a needle roller?
Needle rollers also use needles for skin resurfacing but are often too large and unwieldy for tight areas. They are also dependednt on hand pressure, so the depth of penetration varies depending on the the amount of pressure exerted and the softness of the skin, while the Dermapen depth of penetration is set precisely with an electornic dial. There is also lateral trauma to the skin when the needles on a roller pull out of the skin as the wheel turns. This does not happen with the Dermapen, which relies only on vertical needle action.
What are the immediate after-effects?
There is redness and very minimal bleeding.
