Microneedling Treatment with PRP

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling, also known as Stem Cell Facial or a Vampire Facial when combined with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), is an effective technique for skin rejuvenation and can improve aged sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles, smokers lines around lips, skin tightening and rejuvenation, large pores, hair loss, stretch marks, and scars.

Microneedling for hair loss,  or alopecia areata, has been used with encouraging results. Stretch marks, acne scars, and under eye bags and discoloration can be treated extremely well with microneedling due to its ability to stimulate new collagen fibers.

Used in conjunction with PRP, microneedling is very good for melasma and dark circles as it has a ‘blanching’ effect and breaks up skin pigmentation by suppressing the production of melanocytes.

Stretch marks can benefit from microneedling using PRP and RF (radiofrequency) energy in order to stimulate new collagen fibers. Multiple sessions are needed to achieve tangible results.

 

Microneedling Pen

The microneedling pen uses micro needles to make tiny openings in the skin and stimulate collagen production. For better results, Dr DeJuliis uses the patient’s own stem cells (or PRP) that are obtained after a simple blood drawing done in the comfort and privacy of her Medical Spa. Scientific research has shown that when stem cells are applied to the skin after creating the micro channels, the patient can see better and faster results.

Microneedling Without Stem Cells

Microneedling can also be performed without using stem cells for patients who do not wish to have, or feel uncomfortable with, a blood drawing.

When using a microneedling pen, the treatment can feel like small pricks on the skin. Because Dr DeJuliis can regulate the depth of needle, the sensation can vary. Some discomfort can be felt for scars but over all, the treatment is very well tolerated, with little to no downtime. Make-up can be applied two to three hours after the procedure if desired.

 

When can I expect results from microneedling?

Significant results can be seen in six to eight weeks.

Patients will require a number of treatments, based on the skin concern. The average number is three to four treatments, one every three weeks. Acne scars and stretch marks need more sessions, on average five or six. 

Sun block effective against UVB and UVA rays is a must after each microneedling treatment. 

Medical microneedling is performed by a physician and is no comparison to similar treatments done in a spa by an aesthetician or with at-home microneedling devices.

For those patients who would like to combine skin tightening via radio-frequency (RF) with microneedling, then Vivace might be an option. DrD tailors all treatments based on the patient’s desired outcome and can advise if Vivace is a better treatment option.

Microneedling FAQs

How does microneedling work?

The microneedling process involves the creation of small holes or micro injuries in the top layer of your skin. This helps to stimulate the skin’s natural healing process, resulting in the creation of new collagen and elastin. As a result, your skin is rejuvenated, with a firmer, smoother appearance.

What skin concerns can microneedling treat?

Microneedling can be used to treat a wide variety of skin conditions, including

  • Acne and other skin scarring
  • Wrinkles and fine lines on the face, neck and legs
  • Stretch marks and sun damage
  • Sagging or loose skin
  • Enlarged pores
  • Loose, thin or wrinkled skin
  • Uneven skin tone or discoloration
Is there anything to do to prepare for my microneedling treatment?

Although this is a minimally invasive procedure, it’s still important that you prepare for your treatment to ensure the best possible results. 

  • For starters, if you have any breakouts or conditions like hives, cold sores, allergic reactions, etc. you should not have the procedure. 
  • Try to avoid exposure to sunlight for at least 24 hours prior to your appointment, or wear sunscreen if you need to be outdoors. 
  • Avoid retinoids and acid-based skincare products as they can cause skin irritation before and after your treatment.
  • If you are on blood thinners, you may have to stop the medication temporarily.
  • On the day of your treatment, wash with a gentle cleanser and don’t apply makeup, lotions, perfume, etc. Arrive with a fresh face.
How soon will I see results?

Most patients who have undergone microneedling treatment see results in as little as 24-72 hours. Although these initial results will fade, typically within 2-4 weeks your true results will be visible, depending on the speed of new collagen production. During this period you’ll notice that your skin is firmer or more supple.

How many treatments will I need?

This will depend on how severe your skin condition is and how you respond to each treatment. For example, uneven skin tone, blemishes and dark spots will likely need only one or two treatments to help you achieve your desired result. However, deep scarring may require multiple visits. The doctor will help you determine the ideal treatment plan for your skin concern.
