Microneedling with PRP
Microneedling is a minimally-invasive collagen induction therapy that involves the use of a pen that contains fine needles. When combined with the power of your body’s own platelet-rich plasma (PRP), the procedure stimulates your natural healing process and regenerates collagen in the skin. This results in a revolutionary approach to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, skin tone, and texture as well as reducing scarring.

What Is PRP?
Your body has the natural ability to stimulate rejuvenation and healing. Modern scientific advancements offer an amazing solution to wrinkles, scars, and acne by isolating, concentrating, and utilizing the built-in anti-aging compounds in your own blood.
PRP is a blood plasma containing highly-concentrated platelets. A platelet is a specialized type of blood cell involved in injury healing, containing significant reservoirs of natural growth factors. PRP treatments are performed by drawing these components from a patient’s own blood, processing the harvested blood, then injecting the PRP into the patient’s injured tissues.
The Benefits of Microneedling with PRP
When PRP is implemented with microneedling, it penetrates your skin through the small channels created by the microneedles. The PRP supercharges the inherent benefits of microneedling, providing you with a youthful, well-rested appearance. PRP is derived from your own blood, which means side effects are almost non-existent.
It Repairs Damaged Skin
Microneedling, combined with PRP therapy, can significantly improve the condition of your skin and repair various types of skin imperfection, including acne scars, sun spots, melasma, stretch marks, and wrinkles.
Both of these treatments are non (or minimally) invasive procedures, which means they don’t use surgery, standard injections, or lasers to treat your skin.
Short Recovery Period with Almost No Downtime
Although you shouldn’t wear any makeup, sunbathe, or exercise for several days after the treatment, you can return to your usual daily activities the very same day. Your face may look a bit red and feel warm and tighter than usual, but you can drive home afterward and return to work immediately.
Your Skin Practically Heals Itself
Microneedling with PRP recovery treatment is so effective and safe because it triggers your own body to heal itself without any foreign substances entering your body. Your skin starts to repair itself by simply producing more collagen.
Almost Completely Painless
As the process of microneedling only affects the top layer of your skin, there are almost no nerves involved, meaning there’s nothing to trigger pain. Patients even say the experience is comfortable and relaxing.
Long Lasting Effects
In most cases, the effects of microneedling and PRP combo treatments have long-lasting benefits, especially when it comes to skin conditions like scars or sunspots.
Am I a Good Candidate for Microneedling with PRP?
Thanks to its low-risk process, microneedling is a great option for those who are not good candidates for other treatment options, like lasers. Microneedling with PRP is suitable for all skin types, including darker skin tones, where lasers can cause hypopigmentation.
The best way to determine whether microneedling with PRP is right for you is to schedule a consultation with our experienced licensed aesthetician. During your consultation, we will assess your skin, discuss your goals, and recommend the procedure that best suits your needs. Microneedling may be the ideal treatment to provide the look you desire. Perhaps a different procedure or combination of treatments may be recommended to meet your goals.
