Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

PRP is a technique that can be combined with microneedling with radiofrequency for skin rejuvenation.

  • Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is derived from a patient’s own blood. A small amount of blood is drawn from the patient which is then processed to separate the platelets from the other components of the blood. This results in a concentrated plasma rich in platelets that can be applied directly to the skin.
  • Microneedling involves the use of a handpiece with fine needles that create controlled micro-injuries to the skin. Heat can be added to the process using radiofrequency. The body responds with its natural healing process, which leads to increased collagen and elastin production and, ultimately, skin rejuvenation.

Combining the two therapies can enhance the effectiveness of each treatment. PRP is applied directly after the microneedling with radiofrequency, which allows for better penetration of the PRP through the micro channels in the targeted areas.

Benefits of Combining PRP and Microneedling with Radiofrequency

  • Increased collagen production as the PRP contains growth factors that stimulate collagen synthesis, which can improve skin texture and firmness.
  • PRP can enhance the healing process, reducing downtime post-treatment.
  • Skin tone and texture, the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, and the overall appearance of the skin are addressed using microneedling with radiofrequency, and when combined with the PRP, these effects may be further enhanced.

Patients wanting to address fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, uneven skin tone, texture, and enlarged pores may find this combination of procedures to be beneficial.


PRP can be used with Microneedling with Radiofrequency to remodel scars, which will improve the quality of the scars by addressing thickness, redness, and tightness. This will help scars to soften, flatten, and fade.

Post-PRP Treatment

Patients may experience mild redness, minimal swelling, and pinpoint bleeding, which is typically resolved within a day or two. For the best results, it is important to follow the post-treatment instructions given by your provider.
