At Re-Nu Aesthetics, we aim to customize every treatment for each patient and optimize every treatment. We offer a natural, results-driven treatment called RF Microneedling with Morpheus8, and we can optimize the results by microneedling with PRP, PRF, or exosomes to take your results to the next level.
Microneedling With Morpheus8, PRP, PRF, and Exosomes
Microneedling uses radiofrequency energy to optimize results. We use the Morpheus8 device, a fractional microneedling tool that emits radiofrequency heat energy into the dermal layers of the skin during the treatment. The device has different single-use treatment heads that can be fitted with microneedles of different depths to address unique skin concerns.
A Customizable Treatment
The device can reach as deep as 8 mm beyond the skin’s surface, and we can use longer or shorter needle depths based on your treatment area. Finer areas of the face that are more sensitive, like the under-eye area, the area around the mouth, and some parts of the forehead, may require shorter needles to produce results.
Other areas of the face, like the cheeks and jawline, may need longer needles to produce enough collagen to correct problematic skin conditions.
Microneedling With PRP vs. PRF
PRP treatments have become extremely popular in the recent past due to their ability to naturally improve the skin and target different skin concerns with little to no downtime and no risk of an allergic reaction. Many patients have heard of PRP even if they’ve never experienced a treatment before, but very few are familiar with PRF. Both substances are found in the blood but can accomplish different skincare goals during treatment.
Platelet-Rich Fibrin vs. Platelet-Rich Plasma
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, while PRF stands for platelet-rich fibrin. Platelet-rich fibrin doesn’t contain anticoagulants but has clotting factors, so naturally, it contains a higher concentration of platelets.
As a result, it can better target some of the more severe skin conditions. Upon application to the skin, it can increase circulation and carry blood to the surface to help promote results. PRP has fewer platelets and has a coagulant added during the separation process to prevent rapid clotting. Both are very effective.
Microneedling With Exosomes
Exosomes are cellular messengers that communicate from one cell to another. While they perform many different important functions, they are responsible for healing and repairing the skin. As you age, your body doesn’t complete this process as efficiently as it used to.
Exosomes on their own are still powerful agents. By re-introducing them to the skin through a microneedling treatment, we can use them to promote anti-aging results.
Customizing Your Treatment
Exosomes, PRP, and PRF are all powerful substances with growth factors that, when isolated and applied to the skin, will enhance Morpheus8 and or regular microneedling treatment results. Based on your skincare goals and the skin issues you want to treat, you may be better suited for one of these anti-aging serums over the other. We will perform a pre-treatment consultation to determine whether your skin will benefit from exosomes, PRP, PRF, or a combination.
If you choose to use platelet-rich plasma or fibrin during your treatment, we’ll need to perform a standard blood draw and place your blood in a centrifuge. The centrifuge spins the blood quickly for several minutes to create a concentrated serum that we’ll apply during the treatment process so that your skin can absorb all of the anti-aging benefits.
The Treatment Process
Morpheus8 is a powerful skincare device that uses radiofrequency energy and microneedles to perfect the skin. If you choose to use PRF or PRP as an anti-aging serum during your treatment, we will begin your appointment with the standard blood draw to obtain these growth factors from your blood. Then, we will apply a topical numbing solution to your skin, preventing you from feeling the needles.
What To Expect
As we needle the skin, we may perform one or several passes depending on your ultimate skin care goals. You won’t feel any discomfort but may feel a warming sensation and some pressure from the radiofrequency energy and the device as it stamps the needles into your skin in a repetitive motion. We will then apply the platelet-rich plasma, platelet-rich fibrin, or exosomes to your skin so that they can absorb into the microchannels created by the device.
After your treatment is over, you’ll be given a list of post-care instructions, and while you won’t need to plan on downtime, you will need to follow the microneedling with PRP post-treatment protocol to nourish and protect your skin.
Microneedling on its own can improve many different skin conditions, but by adding radiofrequency energy, platelet-rich plasma, exosomes, or platelet-rich fibrin to the treatment process, we can help you achieve more dramatic results even faster than a standard microneedling treatment. You may notice some initial improvement in your skin after your first treatment, but the best and most noticeable results will become visible within the first few weeks following your treatment.
Your results will continue to improve for several months, and by scheduling a series of treatments, you can ensure that you achieve results and finally perfect those skin conditions that haven’t responded to traditional methods like a healthy lifestyle or anti-aging topical products.
Am I a Good Treatment Candidate?
Patients who want to naturally improve their complexions or target specific skin conditions are good candidates for Morpheus8 treatments with platelet-rich plasma, fibrin, or exosomes. If you’ve scheduled microneedling treatments in the past and have seen results, but want to achieve even more dramatic, skin-perfecting results, this treatment will meet your needs.
Additionally, patients who want to avoid the use of cosmetic injectables and instead want to schedule a natural anti-aging treatment can benefit from Microneedling with PRP.
Combat Aging Naturally
If you want to take your microneedling results to the next level or you’re looking for a treatment that can perfect your skin without added ingredients, injectables, or significant downtime, Morpheus8 treatments will help you reach your goals.
