What is Microneedling with PRP?

Microneedling is used to treat and improve conditions like acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, skin texture, pore size, brown spots, stretch marks, and pigment issues. The addition of PRP (platelet rich plasma) from the blood may make microneedling more effective. As these proteins help skin tissue repair itself.

What to Expect


Microneedling is the leading procedure to stimulate your collagen the fastest. As we age we lose collagen production quickly. This treatment stimulates at collagen depth so it keeps producing. While the Platelet Rich Plasma works to help the skin tissue to repair itself.

What should I expect?

  • This is an hour long appointment.
  • The nurse will take a blood sample and put that into a centrifuge, a machine that separates the PRP from the rest of the blood.
  • Numbing cream is applied for comfort, and the microneedling treatment begins.
  • The needles are very thin and move rapidly causing little to no pain.
  • PRP is used during microneedling then injected at the end.

Doctor’s Takeaways

  • Your blood will be drawn prior to the procedure. So make sure you plan for that.
  • Always be careful of the sun after microneedling.
  • It's best to just relax at home for the rest of the day after the treatment.
  • Make sure to use a clean pillowcase the night you get the treatment.
