The PRP SkinPen® Procedure at a Glance
The procedure takes about 30 minutes and has individualized settings for patient comfort. Many patients see healthier-looking skin immediately, but damage to dermal collagen that has occurred over a long period also takes time for remodeling to take place. You may not see the final result for up to three to six months following your final session, but individual results will vary.
Length of procedure: 30 minutes
Length of recovery: 4-6 weeks
