There’s no denying that microneedling or “collagen induction therapy” is a popular cosmetic procedure. In a nutshell, microneedling helps to reduce the signs of aging and helps to rejuvenate skin for both men and women.
Traditionally, microneedling involves the use of a roller device that pricks the skin to stimulate new collagen production. Here at the Laser Skin Care Center, we can take this treatment to the next level thanks to PRP!
What is PRP?
PRP is an acronym for “platelet-rich plasma” and describes a method of using the body’s own cells to help rejuvenate the skin. PRP involves a simple blood draw from the patient, and that sample gets sent to our in-house lab for preparation.
When it comes to addressing aesthetic concerns, microneedling with PRP is one of the leading solutions selected by thousands of Americans each year. PRP is a science-backed and evidence-based treatment that can get carried out in a single in-office session.
Our expert team of dermatologists here at the Laser Skin Care Center primarily focuses on PRP microneedling treatments for cosmetic purposes. Specifically, the two leading applications for PRP are facial rejuvenation and hair restoration.
A facial rejuvenation treatment using platelet-rich plasma microneedling helps to reduce wrinkles and fine lines, acne scars and pore sizes, and even out the skin’s texture. This also results in improved skin health overall.
PRP microneedling can also help slow down the process of thinning hair and even prevent further hair loss. Patients experiencing the early onset of hair thinning and hair loss can reverse the problem with this quick and easy procedure.
Benefits of PRP Microneedling
Microneedling is already proven to reduce wrinkles and sagging skin. Combined with platelet-rich plasma, the healing process is significantly reduced as the PRP stimulates growth in cells and recovers skin damage.
Another reason a patient’s own plasma gets used with microneedling is that it lowers the duration of redness and swelling typically seen after conventional microneedling. PRP can be administered by injection or topically, before or after the procedure.
PRP microneedling is a minimally-invasive procedure. Our friendly team of dermatologists at the Laser Skin Care Center are fully-trained in PRP microneedling and are well-versed in the procedure.

Am I a Candidate for Microneedling with PRP?
Virtually everyone can benefit from microneedling with PRP. That’s because the procedure uses a patient’s own blood, reducing the risk of infection or allergic reaction. What’s more, microneedling with PRP can get done on all skin types, tones, and textures.
Men and women of all ages are candidates for microneedling with PRP. Of course, there are some patients that might be better suited to either waiting a while (pregnant women) or opting for alternative treatments.
In any case, the physician that sees you at the Laser Skin Care Center will evaluate your medical history and determine if you’re a good candidate for microneedling with PRP.
