How Does PRP and Microneedling Work?
PRP and microneedling are both treatments that focus on the body’s natural healing ability. PRP improves the skin through application of growth factors, while microneedling stimulates collagen and elastin production.
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is collected from the patient’s own blood and isolated through a medical device called centrifuge. Platelets are commonly known for repairing damaged skin cells and building new tissues. With a PRP injection, the skin cells will be rejuvenated.
While PRP utilizes platelets from the body, microneedling focuses on two proteins: collagen and elastin. As your skin is pricked by the microneedles, controlled injuries are created. This signals the body to produce more collagen and elastin.
Collagen and elastin are proteins responsible for providing structure, health, strength, and elasticity in the skin. These proteins act as scaffolds that result in firmer and younger-looking skin.
Combining PRP and microneedling in one treatment doubles the effect of skin rejuvenation in just one session. The microchannels created in the skin by microneedling allow the PRP to penetrate deeply for improved results. Those who are interested in getting a PRP and microneedling treatment should schedule a consultation at Dr. Beauty Med Spa.

PRP Therapy & Microneedling: Everything You Need To Know
PRP skin rejuvenation is not a new means of healing: it has been used for years in dentistry, reconstructive surgery, and sports medicine. In recent years, PRP has been recognized as a beneficial cosmetic treatment, allowing patients to naturally fight the effects of aging.
How Does PRP & Microneedling Work?
Simply explained, PRP Therapy begins by obtaining the patient’s blood, preparing it for application, and injecting it into the area to be treated.
Step 1: Prepare The Blood
To begin, blood is extracted from the patient — the amount of which is dependent on the treatment area. After the blood is obtained, it is placed in a centrifuge which spins the blood until the various parts separate — this takes about 15 minutes.
Step 2: Apply The Numbing Agent
Before application, a topical numbing agent is applied to the patient to lessen discomfort during the procedure.
Step 3: Microneedling Treatment
A microneedling pen is used to apply the treatment: microscopic needles within the pen push the plasma mixture into the tissue under the top layer of skin.
What Are The Benefits Of PRP & Microneedling?
Platelets naturally found in your blood help to rejuvenate tissue and stimulate cellular turnover as well as collagen and elastin production. Practically speaking, because of cellular growth stimulation, the effects of aging, environmental stressors, physical changes, and other imperfections are, at the very least, reduced and, in some cases, even reversed.
Is PRP & Microneedling Right for Me?
This treatment offered at our med spa can be beneficial for anyone, regardless of skin tone or gender, however, to find out if it is the right treatment for you and your needs, it is best to set up a consultation with our medical staff or doctor.
Does PRP & Microneedling Have Side-Effects?
Rarely do patients experience long-term side effects. Our clients may feel discomfort and experience redness up to 48 hours after treatment, however, most can return to regular daily activities that day or the day after treatment.
Is PRP & Microneedling Painful?
This treatment does involve some discomfort, however, we do our best to minimize the pain experienced during the procedure with topical numbing agents.
