what is Microneedling with PRP?
Advanced Dermatology offers microneedling, a skin rejuvenation treatment that punctures tiny holes with our SkinPen technology into the skin on your face, neck, or chest to stimulate skin repair. As an added benefit, your own platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is then applied to the same area to further heal and allow the skin to grow new cells. These two treatments together can reduce the appearance of scars, wrinkles, fine lines, spots, and other skin issues. The texture of your skin can be greatly improved to appear smoother and more even without damaging the skin. If you would like to learn more about the microneedling with PRP treatment, schedule a one-on-one consultation with one of our practitioners at Advanced Dermatology in Katy, League City, Pearland, or Sugar Land, TX.

am i a candidate for microneedling with prp?
A perfect candidate for microneedling with PRP would be anyone looking to change the appearance or texture of the surface of their face. Dry skin, uneven skin tone, rough texture, age spots, loose skin, wrinkles, acne, and scarring are all skin conditions that could benefit from a microneedling with PRP treatment. This treatment can also be used to help combat the effects of sun damage that may have caused your skin to have a rough texture or hyperpigmentation.
how is microneedling with prp performed?
Prior to the microneedling section of your treatment, someone from our medical staff will draw your blood for the PRP collection. The drawn blood will then be taken to our lab for the separation process where your viable cells, platelets, and growth factors will be condensed into PRP. For the microneedling treatment, Advanced Dermatology uses state-of-the-art technology to create tiny holes in your skin. The small needles used will not damage your skin but will instead help stimulate the production of collagen. Once the microneedling is complete, the PRP serum will be applied to the skin to sink in. After the PRP is fully absorbed, we will remove the serum and cleanse your skin.
how long is recovery from microneedling with prp?
Following your microneedling with PRP treatment, you may experience some normal effects, such as bruising, swelling, and redness. We recommend that you do not wear makeup, use abrasive skin cleansers, or submerge in a swimming pool for approximately 72 hours post-treatment. These activities can expose your skin to harsh chemicals and bacteria that could lead to adverse reactions. You should also minimize sun exposure or use protective measures when going outside. Final results are typically seen within several weeks as the skin works to repair and heal itself.
