Microneedling +/- PRP Beverly Hills

Microneedling is an effective treatment that uses tiny needles to boost collagen production, rejuvenate the skin, and treat a variety of specific concerns. Combining microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) adds your blood platelets to the procedure, accelerating the repair process and enhancing your results.

Our experienced practitioners at Spa26 offer microneedling alone and in combination with PRP, depending on each patient’s specific needs and goals. This minimally-invasive procedure reduces skin imperfections like fine lines and shallow scarring while giving your skin a healthy glow.

What is Microneedling +/- PRP?

Microneedling uses fine needles that create micro-channels in the skin, prompting the body to produce more collagen. Collagen is an essential protein that gives skin its smooth texture, but levels begin to decline as early as our 20s. As collagen levels decrease, the skin becomes loose, while fine lines and wrinkles form. By restoring collagen levels, we can effectively reduce early aging signs and enhance the skin’s overall appearance.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) consists of two vital elements in the patient’s blood, extracted during a routine blood draw. PRP has a high concentration of growth factors, which promotes healing when delivered into the dermal tissue. Growth factors boost the effects of microneedling, further increasing collagen production and creating a more dramatic improvement in the skin.

When we apply PRP to the skin after microneedling, the channels created by the needles allow the PRP to advance further into the dermal layers, where it can deliver the most significant effect. The synergistic nature of the two treatments performed together ensures that patients receive the most optimal benefits.

Microneedling +/- PRP Benefits

Microneedling, with or without PRP, has become a go-to treatment for numerous celebrities for good reason. This minimally-invasive procedure targets numerous skin concerns without significant downtime. While your skin may look better soon after your treatment, it will continue to improve in the following weeks as collagen levels continue to rise. Patients can enjoy the positive changes for 4-6 weeks before results become fully apparent.

What Results to Expect:

  • Reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improvement in shallow scarring, including acne scars
  • More consistent skin texture and tone
  • Reduction in pore size, for a smoother skin surface

How Long Will Results Last?

Once patients see the full results of their microneedling treatment, those improvements should last 3-5 months. You can make the most of your treatment with daily sun protection and medical-grade skincare. By scheduling treatments two or three times a year, our patients can also maintain their positive results indefinitely.

How the Procedure Works

Microneedling is a relatively comfortable procedure, thanks to the application of topical numbing cream before treatment. The two-step procedure typically takes about 1-2 hours to complete. Downtime afterward is minimal, and patients may start to see positive results within days after their treatment.

Before & Preparation

  • Avoid tanning and excess sun exposure for several weeks before your appointment.
  • Avoid medications that could increase bleeding risk, such as anti-inflammatory medications and blood thinners.
  • Avoid taking supplements such as vitamin E, fish oil, and turmeric before your procedure.
  • If you tend to be sensitive to pain or needles, you can purchase Zensa on TheSkinSpot.com and apply it to the treatment area 30 minutes before your treatment time.
  • Other products that can reduce downtime are our compounded Arnica, Bromelain, and Vitamin K capsules, Ocumend patches, and Enhance cream available under the bruising category on TheSkinSpot.com.

During the Procedure

  • We start by extracting the platelet-rich plasma during a routine blood draw if you choose to include PRP in your treatment. 
  • Your provider will apply a topical numbing cream to your skin to ensure a comfortable procedure.
  • We will roll the needling device across your skin to create the micro-channels. 
  • This process takes about 45 minutes to complete.
  • If you choose to add PRP, we apply it at the end, gently massaging it into the skin channels created by the microneedling.

Microneedling +/- PRP FAQs

What does microneedling do for your face?

Microneedling creates micro-channels in the skin that promote healing and boost collagen production. The result is smoother skin texture, fewer lines and wrinkles, and a visible improvement in some types of scarring.

Is microneedling with PRP worth it?

Microneedling with PRP is a skin rejuvenation treatment that promotes skin repair and collagen production to improve the appearance of the skin and reduce sun damage and aging symptoms. When performed by a qualified provider, patients are usually quite pleased with the results of their treatment.

Is microneedling effective without PRP?

Microneedling offers skin rejuvenation benefits, since the micro-channels created during the procedure stimulate collagen production. This treatment is particularly effective in treating shallow scarring, but also has a positive impact on sun damage, fine lines, and uneven skin texture and tone.

Does microneedling actually work?

Yes. Because the procedure works in the deeper dermal layers to stimulate the body’s own healing process and collagen stimulation, patients will see improvement in the skin’s appearance over time. It is considered safe for nearly any skin type and tone.

How long does microneedling last?

Most patients will enjoy the results of their microneedling treatment for 3-5 months. By scheduling procedures every few months, patients can maintain their improvements much longer.

Is microneedling with PRP better than just microneedling?

By combining microneedling with PRP, patients can increase the healing properties of the procedure. The two-step treatment provides more collagen production than microneedling alone, as well as the addition of growth factors, which can accelerate recovery and boost the regenerative effects overall.
