What to Expect

BEFORE

Avoid self-tanning lotions, tanning beds and prolonged exposure to sunlight 24 hours before undergoing microneedling with PRP. You should stop using blood-thinning medications and supplements for at least three days before treatment. We also ask that you please avoid chemical peels or laser treatments for at least a week prior to your appointment

DURING

After consulting with our board-certified clinician, you will have your face cleansed with a special solution, followed by application of a numbing agent. A small amount of your blood is then drawn to be centrifuged to make PRP. Microneedling with PRP treatments typically take about an hour to complete.

AFTER

Microneedling post-care involves applying a soothing serum to reduce discomfort. Your skin will look sunburned for 24 to 48 hours but redness will quickly diminish. To help your skin heal, avoid physical activity vigorous enough to make you perspire. If you wish, you can apply light foundation to conceal redness.

Frequently Asked Questions

Microneedling with PRP

How is Microneedling Different from Microneedling with PRP?


Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) applied to the skin after the microneedling treatment not only lengthens the duration of results, but also speeds up the time it takes to see visible results. In addition, microneedling with PRP may help minimize side effects by directly enriching the skin with growth factors.




How Should I Prepare for Microneedling with PRP at Reflections Med Spa?


We ask that you not use retinol products five days before your appointment and that you eat something a few hours prior to receiving treatment since we need to draw blood from you to make PRP.




What Can I Expect During a Microneedling with PRP Treatment?


After consulting with our board-certified clinician, you will have your face cleansed with a special solution, followed by application of a numbing agent. A small amount of your blood is then drawn to be centrifuged to make PRP. Microneedling with PRP treatments generally take about an hour.




What Can I Expect After Treatment?


Microneedling post-care involves applying a soothing serum to reduce discomfort. Your skin will look sunburned for 24 to 48 hours but redness will quickly diminish. To help your skin heal, avoid physical activity vigorous enough to make you perspire. If you wish, you can apply light foundation to conceal redness.




Will I Need More Than One Microneedling with PRP Treatment to See Desired Results?


Everyone has different aesthetic goals, so how many treatments you need to achieve your goals depends on the type and severity of skin problems you want eliminated.You can have as many as six or seven treatments as long as they are scheduled at least four to five weeks apart. Your clinician will discuss these topics and more with you during your consultation.
