La Touche Élite Aesthetics is proud to offer microneedling with the SkinPen® by Crown Aesthetics. The SkinPen® is the first FDA approved microneedling device on the market.
Regeneration of collagen and elastin in skin is key to its useful appearance. With aging, there is an increased breakdown in these fibers, which can cause wrinkles. Skin remodeling’s role in maintaining a healthy, rejuvenated appearance is vital. SkinPen has also been approved for the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles on the neck.
Microneedling creates thousands of controlled micro-injuries in the skin. The skin’s natural response to injury is a complex wound healing process, which stimulates collagen and elastin production and restoration of the skin’s tone, texture, elasticity, and appearance.
Plasma is the liquid portion of the whole blood comprised largely of water and proteins, and is the medium by which white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets circulate through the body. When your blood is spun through a centrifuge, the red blood cells are separated, producing plasma, which is rich in platelets. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is high in several growth factor types that utilize your body’s own concentrated platelets to accelerate wound healing. The growth factors in PRP stimulate the reparative process in the body.
PRP, when used with microneedling, takes wound healing to the next level, leaving the skin looking rejuvenated, refreshed, and much improved.

Microneedling with PRP FAQs
Does it hurt?
The process involves the application of numbing medication on the surface of the face and neck, making the process very tolerable.
Can the SkinPen be used on my skin type?
The SkinPen is clinically proven to be safe for all skin types in both men and women (Fitzpatrick 1 – 6: light to dark).
What should I expect after a treatment?
The skin will feel tight and appear red (like a sunburn) for approximately 1 – 3 days. Sometimes treated areas may flake off.
How many treatments do I need?
Some people experience drastic improvements after one treatment, but three treatments are generally recommended a month apart for the best results.
When will my skin improve?
The skin can develop a glow in as early as three days. Within 3 – 6 weeks, new blood vessels and collagen begin to form. An overall improvement in skin tone and texture, with decreased appearance in wrinkles, is visible within 3 – 6 months.
