Are you looking for a way to rejuvenate your skin? PDRN facial treatment is one of the newest and most popular treatments on the market. It uses microneedling technology to help stimulate collagen production, which helps promote younger-looking skin. I’ll go over what it does, how it works, and common side effects in this blog post.
What Does PDRN Meaning?
PDRN (pigment deposition disease-associated reticular skin pigmentation) treatment is a medical procedure to improve the appearance of skin discoloration.
What Is PDRN/ Salmon DNA Facial Treatment?
PDRN facial treatment also known as Salmon DNA treatment uses customized technology to apply controlled amounts of energy to the surface of the skin. This can be used on its own or in conjunction with other cosmetic treatments for enhanced results.
Salmon DNA is used for its anti-inflammatory properties to calm the skin, helping reduce redness and irritation. Its antioxidant properties stimulate collagen & elastin production through the release of wound healing growth factors. Finally, it also acts as a topical pain killer that can help diminish discomfort associated with laser treatments.
PDRN/ Salmon DNA Facial Steps
1. PDRN/ Salmon DNA facial device is placed on the skin
2. A vacuum draws up excess fluid from the area where energy will be applied
3. Controlled amounts of laser light are delivered to the skin, which penetrates to a depth of about 2mm into the dermis (the middle layer of skin). The presence of collagen and elastin proteins triggers a natural response forming new collagen protein fibers that give elasticity and strength to the skin while plumping out wrinkles and scars.
4. After treatment, any fluid that was drawn up by suction is gently massaged back into place. In some cases, any redness or puffiness may remain for 10 minutes post-treatment but after 24 hours most patients look refreshed and have a more even skin tone.
In some cases, immediate results can be seen after just one treatment, but most patients need between 3-5 treatments to see maximum results. This treatment is an alternative to fillers or botox that may cause more side effects or complications. In contrast, PDRN improves the skin’s texture without filling in wrinkles and scar tissue.
How Does PDRN/Salmon DNA Facial Treatment Help in Skin Rejuvenation?
PDRN facial treatment can improve the texture and appearance of your skin by using a low-level laser to trigger the body’s natural collagen production. PDRN is a safe and effective treatment that when used in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures, such as facials, peels, or IPL rejuvenation treatments, offers:
- Enhanced skin tone and clarity
- Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
- Softening of acne scars and stretch marks
- Minimization of pore size for smoother skin
Increased moisture retention in the skin giving it a more youthful appearance. The PDRN device provides exceptional results because it delivers precisely controlled amounts of energy to an individualized depth in the dermis where collagen resides. This stimulates collagen production without damaging surrounding tissues, which is why it’s a popular treatment for facial rejuvenation and skin resurfacing.

How Does PDRN Treatment Work?
PDRN treatment works by selectively targeting abnormal pigment deposits. The laser light is delivered into the dermis, where it converts to heat energy that heats up and destroys the pigment cells. As a result, you experience an improved appearance of redness, dark spots, acne scars, enlarged pores, and fine lines/wrinkles.
What Are The Benefits Of Having PDRN Facial Treatment?
- Treat fine lines and wrinkles
- Minimize pore size
- Smooth acne scars & stretch marks
- Refresh sagging skin
Who Are The Ideal Candidates for PDRN Facial Treatment?
PDRN treatment can be used on any skin type, ethnic background, or gender, but it’s particularly effective in treating sun-damaged skin. The intense heat generated by this device helps minimize fine lines, reduce acne scars, fade hyperpigmentation caused by sun exposure or other skin diseases such as melasma.
This procedure reduces overall skin aging effects so results look natural and will last long term with proper at-home maintenance.
What Kind Of Skin Conditions Can Be Treated With PDRN?
PDRN treatments are effective for treating a variety of skin conditions including:
- Hyperpigmentation (freckles, age spots)
- Scars from acne breakouts, surgery, or trauma
- Uneven texture from rashes such as psoriasis, vitiligo, or lupus
- Uneven skin tone from melasma. PDRN facial is also used for under-eye dark circles and to improve the appearance of puffy eyes.
How Many PDRN Treatments Are Required?
Typically, the first treatment is performed 3-6 weeks prior to a special event where you would like to look your best. We may recommend two treatments performed one week apart to address areas that need extra attention. Maintenance sessions every 4-12 weeks will further enhance your results and maintain maximum improvement for your skin.
Are PDRN Treatments Safe?
PDRN treats only the upper layer of skin called the epidermis which means that there is no risk of burning or scarring. The process is completely non-invasive and painless with immediate results.
Some temporary side effects may occur including redness, swelling, mild bruising, discomfort from suction on the area, but these wear off within a few hours post-treatment. With repeated treatments, practitioners recommend using an aloe vera cream to minimize any inflammation or redness.
Why Get PDRN Facial Treatment Instead Of “Dermabrasion”?
Unlike Dermabrasion treatment, there is no downtime associated with PDRN Facial treatment. It is a perfect procedure for anyone who wants to look refreshed and rejuvenated without appearing “overdone”.
What Is The Difference Between PDRN Facial And Laser Refresh?
The main difference between laser treatment and PDRN facial is the energy used. The laser displays highly focused beams of light at one specific point on your skin (or targeted area) to target something like wrinkles, age spots, etc., whereas PDRN facial uses less-focused energy that’s dispersed over a larger area.
This means the treatment targets your entire face rather than just one small spot or problem area. What this also means for you is that it typically takes longer than traditional laser treatments because it covers more surface space. It does offer an advantage though in that it doesn’t require any pre-treatment procedures such as dilating your pupils so it’s typically a much easier process than laser treatments.
What Type Of Results Can I Expect?
People who receive PDRN treatment experience an improvement in the appearance of redness, dark spots, acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles. Results vary from person to person depending on your individual skin condition and color preference (lightened or natural). The number of treatments and application of energy will determine how many shades lighter or darker your skin can become.
Can I Combine PDRN Treatment With Other Treatment Or Procedures?
Yes, professionals often combine PDRN with Botox® Cosmetic to treat facial wrinkles and lines around the eyes & mouth. They also perform combination procedures such as chemical peels, dermal fillers, ronas stem cell treatment, laser resurfacing, or fractional radiofrequency/laser treatments in conjunction with each other for optimal results in minimal time.
