What Exactly is Microneedling with PRP?

If you are bothered by skin concerns such as sagging skin, acne, or sun-damaged skin, microneedling with PRP may be the solution you’re looking for. Microneedling with PRP is one of the latest and most effective skin rejuvenation techniques. But what exactly is microneedling with PRP, and how does it work.

Let’s begin by taking a quick look at both procedures.


Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of tiny, sterile needles to create microscopic wounds in the skin. The needles are contained in a small, pen-like device. The controlled injury stimulates the body’s repair process, and it responds by creating new collagen and tissue. Microneedling also causes the skin to contract, and brightens the complexion.

PRP therapy

PRP therapy uses your body’s own blood to revitalize the skin, and improve circulation.  A small amount of blood is taken from the patient, and it is then passed through a centrifuge in order to separate the PRP portion that contains a high concentration of platelets. With PRP there is no risk of an allergic skin reaction.

What is Microneedling with PRP?

Microneedling with PRP is a skin rejuvenation treatment that combines the regenerating effects of microneedling with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, to gain optimal skin rejuvenation results.

The microneedling process opens up the pores, and this makes it easier for the skin to absorb skin care products, or in this case PRP. The platelet rich mix is infused into the skin, and penetrates to the inner layers where it releases natural growth factors that help to regenerate fresh, new tissue.
