RF Microneedling + PRP Q & A

What is platelet-rich plasma (PRP)?

PRP is a popular anti-aging therapy. It uses platelets from your own blood to support your body’s healing process. PRP restores your skin’s natural strength and resilience for facial rejuvenation, improving tone and texture. 

PRP is a compound that contains a high amount of platelets. Dr. Kurzman draws a sample of blood from you and spins it in a centrifuge, separating the platelets and plasma from the red and white blood cells. 

Dr. Kurzman uses the platelets and plasma to create the PRP he uses for microneedling.

What is PRP microneedling?

PRP microneedling is a cosmetic treatment that combines PRP therapy with microneedling. 

Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that stimulates collagen production, kick-starting dermal remodeling. Combining PRP with microneedling invigorates the healing process and supports the growth of new skin cells to fully rejuvenate your skin.

Who is a candidate for PRP microneedling?

The ideal candidate for PRP microneedling is an individual who wants to revitalize the look and health of their skin. Both men and women have PRP microneedling to:

  • Improve skin tone and texture
  • Minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles
  • Tighten loose skin
  • Treat acne, acne scars, and stretch marks
  • Decrease pore size

If you’re looking for a natural way to restore your skin’s youthful glow, then you’re a candidate for PRP microneedling. This cosmetic treatment is safe for most people and requires no special preparation.

What happens during PRP microneedling?

PRP microneedling starts with a blood draw to make your PRP. Your provider cleans your skin and applies a topical numbing gel to minimize discomfort during your microneedling. 

Dr. Kurzman uses his microneedling tool to create microtears in the surface layer. After the microneedling, Dr. Kurzman applies the PRP serum.

You may have some swelling, bruising, and redness following PRP microneedling. You need to avoid using makeup and exfoliating cleansers for the first three days following your beauty treatment. 

It’s also important to protect your treated skin from the sun with sunscreen or clothing.

When can I expect to see results from PRP microneedling?

You should see improvements in your skin immediately following your PRP microneedling. However, you may need four or more treatments every few weeks to get the best results.

Dr. Kurzman customizes your treatment plan to match your goals. Scheduling facials and other skin treatments in between your microneedling can help to remove dead skin cells and promote new cell growth.

To maintain your youthful look, you may benefit from 2-4 PRP microneedling treatments a year.
