Microneedling With PRP

in Scottsdale, AZ

Over time, your tissues begin to break down, causing aesthetic concerns like the presence of wrinkles, fine lines, and uneven skin texture. While this can be frustrating, various cosmetic treatments can rejuvenate the quality of your skin. And one of the most effective of these treatments is microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP).

Microneedling with PRP combines two of the most revolutionary skin rejuvenation therapies to help you achieve results that you can see and feel. This nonsurgical treatment can be used safely on the face and body.

What Are the Benefits of Microneedling With PRP?

A More Youthful Appearance

Wrinkles, fine lines, and other age-related skin concerns can cause you to look much older than you actually are. Microneedling with PRP is an anti-aging treatment that can effectively minimize (and even eliminate) unsightly creases to help you look younger than you have in years.

Increased Collagen Production

Collagen is the backbone of healthy, youthful-looking skin. Sadly, production of this vital protein diminishes as you age. Both microneedling and PRP are used to stimulate collagen, allowing your skin to look firmer, stronger, and healthier overall.

Improved Confidence

Whether from age-related concerns or other blemishes, not looking your best can cause you to feel self-conscious. By effectively rejuvenating the look and feel of your skin, you can feel more comfortable and confident with how you look.

What Can Be Achieved With Microneedling With PRP?

Clearer Complexion

Tighter Skin

Tighter Skin

Regardless of age, many people experience skin laxity. This condition may be the result of life events or lifestyle. However, microneedling with PRP works by stimulating collagen and elastin to give you the tight skin you desire.

Reduced Acne Scars

Microneedling is known for its ability to minimize the look of acne scars. By increasing collagen production and stimulating a healing response, acne scars can be reduced, and smoother skim can be maintained.

Microneedling With PRP Procedure


During this appointment, you will discuss your cosmetic concerns, and your skincare specialist will be able to evaluate your condition to develop a treatment plan just for you. You will also be able to ask any questions you may have about the treatment.


Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure in which dozens of tiny needles puncture the skin to create micro-injuries. These needles can penetrate anywhere from .25 mm to three mm. This process causes cellular regrowth in the body and stimulates collagen and elastin production. Microneedling jump-starts the body into healing itself so that you can enjoy smoother, softer, more blemish-free skin.

Platelet-Rich Plasma

Platelet-rich plasma is naturally found in the blood. This plasma contains growth factors to help your cells heal quicker and stronger than they would without the PRP. PRP also helps promote the regeneration process of soft tissues.

Before the microneedling portion of your treatment, blood will be drawn from your body, and the platelet-rich plasma in your blood will be isolated. During your microneedling treatment, the isolated PRP will be injected into your skin to help you heal more fully from the micro-injuries. This PRP also enhances the production of collagen and elastin in the deeper layers so that you can achieve longer-lasting results.

There is no downtime required for microneedling with PRP treatments. Most patients can return to work the day following their treatment. It is important to follow your post-care instructions, which includes cleaning and moisturizing your treated skin at least twice a day and avoiding the use of exfoliators. Additionally, during your recovery period, you should stay out of direct sunlight and avoid any activities that may cause excessive sweating.
