Microneedling Q & A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a cosmetic beauty treatment designed to stimulate your body’s natural healing response and the production of elastin and collagen for smoother, tighter, firmer, and younger-looking skin. 

Most microneedling devices can be used to rejuvenate the skin on several body parts, including the:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Legs
  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Hands

Microneedling works especially well for resolving a myriad of skin concerns, such as:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Age spots
  • Premature skin aging
  • Scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Rosacea
  • Acne
  • Enlarged pores

Microneedling can even be used to help with hair loss when combined with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy by releasing endothelial growth factors that enhance your hair follicle size and promote hair growth and thickness.

How does microneedling work?

With microneedling, your provider applies a topical gel to your skin for your comfort and to help the microneedling device glide smoothly over your skin.

Your doctor carefully uses fine needles to make precise tiny holes in the upper layer of your skin. The tiny micro-wounds trigger collagen and elastin production.

The microneedling process usually takes around 15-30 minutes, and you might need multiple treatments to get the best outcome.

What is microneedling with PRP?

Microneedling with PRP combines microneedling with platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) for optimal facial rejuvenation. It’s also called the vampire face-lift, and, in some cases, it can include hyaluronic acid dermal fillers to enhance the results.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)

Plasma is a liquid found in your blood. Your blood also contains platelets and red and white blood cells. The platelets contain growth factors that are particularly beneficial for healing injuries and stimulating the regeneration of cells. 

PRP is plasma that’s rich in platelets, so it contains more platelets than what’s usually present in your blood.

To obtain the PRP, your provider uses a centrifugation process to concentrate the growth factors in-office in a special machine until they’re around 5-10 times richer than normal.

Your provider draws your blood from your arm and separates and concentrates the platelets in a centrifuge machine. After the centrifugation process, your provider blends the highly concentrated platelets with your remaining blood and injects the solution into the treatment area. Your provider can usually administer multiple injections in just one session. 

Microneedling with PRP can fill in lost facial volume to rejuvenate your skin and much more.
