The human body is surprisingly adept at self-repair. Following any form of injury, collagen fibers rapidly develop over the skin to protect against infections. It is this very process that provides the foundational principle for microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), a revolutionary technique in the field of skin rejuvenation.

While there is a broad range of facial treatments available which aim to improve the aesthetic appearance of the skin, few can claim to promote healing in the manner PRP microneedling can. This is largely due to its unique approach: while other treatments may solely target the skin’s superficial layers, PRP microneedling gets deeper. By creating controlled micro-injuries and using growth factors found in PRP, microneedling delivers increased efficacy, stimulating the skin to regenerate.

This article aims to provide you with comprehensive information on PRP microneedling, giving you all the knowledge you need to decide if this innovative treatment is right for your personal skincare goals.


How Does PRP Microneedling Work?

PRP microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure wherein a device rolls tiny needles over the skin to create microscopic channels, otherwise known as micro-injuries. This triggers the body’s natural healing response, which restores the skin’s appearance and fights the visible signs of aging. At Elevé, we can enhance the standard microneedling process by integrating PRP, a substance isolated from your own blood, which is rich in collagen growth factors that actively promote cellular repair.

In the course of a PRP microneedling treatment at Elevé, an expert technician will take a small sample of blood. The blood sample is then purified and separated to isolate the PRP. Once separated, the PRP is reintroduced to your skin during the microneedling process, permeating through the tiny channels created by the treatment to reach the deepest layers of the skin. From there, the PRP acts as a catalyst to boost natural production of collagen and elastin — important proteins which tend to break down and diminish as we age.


What Are the Benefits of PRP Microneedling?

PRP microneedling has a wide array of benefits, contributing to a rejuvenated and healthier-looking complexion. These include:

  • Reduced prominence of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improvement in the appearance of acne scars, keloid scars, surgical scars, and broken capillaries
  • Enhanced skin firmness and elasticity
  • Lightened sunspots
  • Diminished visibility of pores
  • Smoother, brighter skin that’s more even in color


Who Can Be Treated With PRP Microneedling?

PRP microneedling is generally safe for most patients, but the following factors can affect whether the treatment is suitable for you:

  • Dermatological Disorders – Those with conditions like psoriasis, eczema, or chronic acne may not respond well to PRP microneedling.
  • Medical History – PRP is not recommended for patients who are pregnant or have a medical history that includes certain types of infections or cancer, cardiovascular disease, or blood disorders. These conditions can affect blood platelets and prevent desired results.
  • Medications – Before your PRP microneedling treatment, it’s important to notify your provider at Elevé of any medications or supplements you’re currently taking. Blood thinners as well as certain supplements can increase the risk of bruising.


Frequently Asked Questions

How long does a PRP microneedling procedure typically last?

A PRP microneedling procedure takes about an hour to complete. However, this can vary depending on the number of treatment areas.


What should I anticipate following the treatment?

The downtime from a PRP microneedling treatment is minimal, with only one to three days of mild tightness and redness (similar to a sunburn). Many patients return to work the next day.


When can I expect to see results?

Most patients will see skin improvement within two to three weeks. During this time, your skin is completing its natural healing process. Full results are typically seen within four to six weeks.


How long do the results last?

The effects of PRP microneedling are not permanent. At Elevé, we recommend treatment every four to six weeks to sustain the rejuvenated appearance.
