During your consultation our nurse providers will analyze your skin quality and condition to advise you if microneedling with PRP is right for you.

Microneedling: What You Need To Know

Microneedling is an innovative procedure that utilizes the body’s natural healing properties to improve the look and feel of your skin. A small, handheld device is used for the treatment. It has a grouping of tiny needles that penetrate the skin and cause imperceptible micro-injuries.

The micro-injuries in the treated area will initiate the body’s natural healing process. Collagen and elastin production will be triggered deep within your skin to heal the area and generate new skin cells. The tiny channels in the skin are also ideal for the absorption of PRP (platelet-rich plasma), a natural healing serum.


What Is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma, commonly referred to as PRP, is a concentrated serum made from a small amount of your own blood.

Once you arrive for your treatment, a mild quantity of blood will be drawn. It will then be placed in a centrifuge for a few minutes to separate out the red blood cells from the plasma to create the PRP, which is loaded with natural growth factors that aid in repairing injured tissue.

PRP has been used in the medical field for many years to treat injured joints, tendons, ligaments, and muscles. However, just like PRP promotes healing in your joints and tendons, it does the same for your skin. The concentrated growth factors will accelerate healing and tissue generation when applied to the skin after microneedling, entering the tiny channels and nourishing your skin cells with what they need to rejuvenate.

Microneedling Options We Offer

Microneedling with PRP

Microneedling with PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) pairs the benefits of microneedling with the regenerative properties of PRP. A specialized device creates tiny micro-injuries on the skin's surface, stimulating collagen production and promoting cell turnover. PRP, derived from the patient's own blood, is then applied to the skin, delivering a high concentration of growth factors and proteins that further enhance the rejuvenation process. Doing so boosts skin elasticity, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, minimizes scars, and improves overall skin texture and tone.

Microneedling with Exosomes (AnteAGE)

Adding exosomes to traditional collagen induction therapy maximizes growth factors, as exosomes contain almost three times the potency of adult stem cells. Exosomes are not only regenerative, they also help to calm inflammation, remodel skin tissue, and boost collagen production. Combining exosomes with microneedling can improve the skin’s tone and texture exponentially while combating common aesthetic issues such as acne scarring and hyperpigmentation. The AnteAGE MDX Exosome Solution is formulated with exosomes derived from bone marrow and Wharton’s Jelly, part of a cell class called Extracellular Vesicles (EVs).

Microneedling with Growth Factor (AnteAGE)

Microneedling with Growth Factor by AnteAGE is a cutting-edge skincare treatment that combines the benefits of microneedling with the rejuvenating power of growth factors. During the procedure, tiny needles create micro-injuries on the skin's surface, stimulating collagen production and enhancing the absorption of the applied growth factors. AnteAGE's growth factors are derived from stem cells, promoting skin regeneration, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and improving overall skin texture and tone. This smart approach not only rejuvenates the skin but also accelerates the healing process, resulting in smoother, firmer, and more radiant skin.

What Can Microneedling With PRP Help Me With?

Time takes its toll on the skin, and your stress level, environment, and lifestyle can also contribute to signs of aging. Microneedling with PRP can improve the look of:

  • Dull skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven pigmentation, including sun spots
  • Scars from acne or injuries
  • Enlarged pores
  • Uneven or rough skin texture

Though the treatment can be performed on almost any location on the body, the majority of patients undergo microneedling as a facial rejuvenation procedure. The small microneedling device can be used to target specific areas on the face with wrinkles and lines, or larger areas such as the décolletage. Virtually anyone can be a candidate for microneedling with PRP, as it is completely natural.

About The Procedure

Our nurse providers can evaluate your skin quality to determine if microneedling with PRP is the right rejuvenation treatment for you.

A blood sample will be drawn and placed in a centrifuge to separate the PRP. Although many patients do not experience much pain, a topical numbing cream can be applied to the treatment area to reduce any minor discomfort. The PRP is applied to the treatment area before the treatment begins. The microneedling device will be passed over your skin while the tiny needles enter and stimulate the area.

After the microneedling is complete, the treatment areas will be cleansed and the PRP is applied to the treated areas once more. The PRP penetrates the micro-channels in your skin to deliver growth factors deep into the skin layers. Microneedling typically takes about one hour to complete.

Will I Have Downtime After Microneedling?

Your skin may be sensitive after your treatment, similar to a mild sunburn. Most patients will take the rest of the day off to rest and relax. You will likely be able to return to work and other activities within one or two days of the procedure.

Apply moisturizer and sunscreen every day, even if you do not anticipate being in the sun for an extended period. Recovery is fast and easy, and any sensitivity will quickly resolve on its own.

Benefits Of Microneedling With Prp

Microneedling with PRP is a natural alternative to chemical peels or laser skin resurfacing. Complications are very rare because your body recognizes the cells (they are your own) and welcomes them. Even those with allergies or sensitive skin can benefit from this minimally invasive treatment.

There are no incisions, no general anesthesia, and very minimal downtime associated with microneedling with PRP. The combination of both techniques will enhance the look and feel of your skin without surgery.

What Results Can I Expect After Microneedling With Prp?

Any residual redness will disappear within a few days. Your skin will continue to improve as natural collagen is produced from within the structure — and nothing is more attractive than youthful skin that is plump with natural collagen. Over the next couple of weeks, you will see your skin tone become more even, with a smoother, improved texture and a natural, healthy glow.

Microneedling with PRP can be repeated as needed to maintain smooth and beautiful skin. Our nurse providers can take years off your appearance with this all-natural, replenishing treatment. Utilize your body’s own healing compounds to revitalize your skin with a microneedling treatment paired with PRP.
