How Can Microneedling with PRP Help with Skin Rejuvenation?

By: Elizebeth Harmon, M.D.


One of the most effective approaches for enhancing the health and appearance of your skin is to stimulate cellular turnover and trigger the body’s natural healing mechanisms, both of which are possible with microneedling plus PRP. At Bella Rose Medispa in Salem, OR, aesthetic provider Dr. Elizebeth Harmon is committed to helping patients just like you elevate their skin care routine with a complete range of professional-grade skin rejuvenation treatments and procedures, including microneedling plus PRP. Do you have questions about the benefits of microneedling with PRP and how this cutting-edge treatment can transform your complexion? Read on to find the answers.

What’s the difference between regular microneedling and microneedling plus PRP?

Microneedling is a popular, widely used skin rejuvenation treatment that helps to target a number of common skin problems at once. For this treatment, we utilize the Rejuvapen NXT® advanced microneedling pen with the Tru Vertical® technique, which uses a 12-needle cartridge, to provide more effective restorations and results. The pen lightly stamps over the targeted skin and creates micro-injury punctures, which prompt a healing response that includes cell regeneration and turnover. As a result, patients are able to improve the appearance of many skin concerns, including:

  • Dull skin
  • Rough skin texture
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Large pores (visible pores)
  • Patchy skin
  • Dark spots
  • Sun damage
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Scarring
  • Acne scarring

With microneedling plus PRP, all of these enhancements are also possible, though the addition of PRP therapy can actually boost the results of treatment and give patients even smoother, clearer, more even skin. This technique starts with the same microneedling treatment, followed by the application of a PRP serum. The PRP serum is derived by drawing a small tube of blood from the patient’s arm and then spinning the blood in a centrifuge to isolate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which contains rich nutrients and regenerative elements. When PRP is applied to the skin after microneedling and allowed to infuse into the deeper layers of tissue, the body’s healing and smoothing response can be magnified for even more impressive results.

How long do the results of microneedling plus PRP last?

The early results of microneedling with PRP treatment are usually visible after just a few days or weeks, and they should continue to improve over the next several months. While results can vary based on each patient’s starting skin type, post-treatment care, lifestyle choices, and other factors, most men and women can enjoy their smoother, healthier-looking skin for up to a year after a microneedling plus PRP treatment.

Will my skin look younger after microneedling plus PRP?

One of the most exciting ways that microneedling plus PRP benefits your appearance is by encouraging your skin to look and feel younger, healthier, and more radiant. This is a result of the collagen-inducing properties of the treatment — meaning microneedling plus PRP works to activate the production of healthy collagen fibers, which help to create a firmer, more lifted, and more youthful look overall.
