Microneedling is one of the most popular treatments in my office because it leaves patients with beautiful, youthful skin without surgery or extensive downtime. During the procedure, one of my expert providers uses a special device with microneedles to place tiny punctures in your skin. This leads to micro injuries and boosts collagen production as your skin heals.
When it’s performed alone, microneedling can change your skin for the better. However, microneedling with PRP can lead to even more dramatic results. Below, I’ll discuss what PRP is and how you can benefit from pairing it with your microneedling treatment.

What is PRP?
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. Essentially, PRP is a part of your blood that contains proteins that give it the ability to clot. When PRP is injected into your skin, it can cause healing and regenerate tissue. If you move forward with a PRP microneedling treatment, one of my expert providers will apply it over your skin.
The PRP will promote new collagen and elastin to leave you with a firm, youthful, and even complexion. Also, PRP expedites the healing process so you can get back to your normal routine even faster. A microneedling treatment with PRP leads to more dramatic results.
Benefits of PRP with Microneedling
One of my favorite parts of PRP with microneedling is that it’s a very versatile treatment. It can improve a number of imperfections including fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and more. Since PRP comes from your own body, it’s 100% safe and natural so you don’t have to worry about any adverse side effects.
In addition, PRP with microneedling is not a surgical procedure. This means you can go back to work and your daily activities immediately after treatment. While you may face some redness, swelling, or red patches, these will subside on their own after a few hours.

Good Candidates for PRP with Microneedling
Almost any patient can benefit from microneedling with PRP because this treatment can improve all types of skin concerns. So if you’d like a beautiful, youthful complexion, microneedling may be right for you. If you have used Accutane within the last three months, however, I do not recommend this treatment.
