What to Expect at Your Microneedling with PRP Treatment

While the name may sound quite scary, the procedure is not considered to be painful and it is not as terrifying as it sounds. In fact, it was given the name because it uses the patient’s own blood to create the PRP. Treatment helps to stimulate the skin, which then boosts elastin and collagen within the skin.

When you come in for a Microneedling with PRP, you can expect the appointment to last about 60 minutes. At the beginning of your appointment, the treatment site will prepped and a topical numbing agent will be applied. We will draw a small amount of blood and utilize centrifuge technology to extract only the PRP. Prior to the beginning of the treatment, numbing will be removed and the skin cleansed. The PRP will be applied to the treatment area and a microneedling device will be used to create microchannels to allow the PRP to seep deeper into the skin to maximize effects. Dr. Kleydman controls the depth, speed, and tracing pattern on your skin to control every step of the treatment.

While the procedure is not considered to be painful, some patients may experience a slight discomfort. In addition, most patients will experience redness after the procedure, but it will fade quickly – up to 48 hours.


How Often Should I Have a Microneedling with PRP in Brooklyn?

The frequency at which you have this facial performed will depend on your results and the results you expect. Some patients only come in once a year for the procedure and others choose to have the entire regimen performed, which usually consists of two or three treatments with six or eight week intervals in between the treatments.

The Microneedling with PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) facial, involves extracting a patient’s blood from their arm and centrifuging it to separate the plasma from the red and white blood cells. The amount of blood needed is less than the typical blood test. The concentrated plasma, which is rich in platelets and a slew of growth factors, is then used as a serum with the Micro-Needling procedure and then injected into the face in areas like the tear troughs, cheeks and nasolabial folds.

Blood contains growth factors, which are fundamental to the development of the healthy cells in your body. This technology harnesses a high concentration of the platelet rich plasma which in turn allows the body to utilize the autologous responses in healing and rejuvenating the skin. The procedure will initiate and boost the natural processes which allow for the production of collagen. This will leave the skin more youthful and glowing, while also effectively treating enlarged pores, fine lines and wrinkles, scarring, vascularity and sun spots.


What to Expect

The day of the procedure your blood will be drawn and centrifuged to extract the platelet rich plasma. The treatment site will be cleaned, prepped and numbing cream will be applied for thirty minutes. We will perform the microneedling procedure using the PRP as the serum, finally injecting the plasma into the cheeks, tear troughs and nasolabial folds.
