What is Microneedling
This world-renowned procedure has become a patient and provider favorite in the world of aesthetics and is known for the amazing results it delivers. Through the years our collagen and elastin production start to deplete starting even into our early 20’s leaving us with visible impurities to the skin. When our collagen and elastin levels are depleting our skin barrier can become weak leading to many skin conditions and diseases that can cause permanent cell damage. PRP Microneedling delivers outstanding results using a device that allows our providers at J Michelle Med Spa to perform epidermal resurfacing treating a variety of aesthetic concerns ranging from deep pitted acne scars, to the basic age prevention, to improving laxity of the skin and much more.

This facial is the ultimate anti-aging treatment as it has everything from our basic microneedling facial and also includes PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma). A guest’s blood is drawn and processed to collect the PRP, also known as “Liquid Gold,” which is rich in collagen-stimulating components. PRP is recognized by the body and is absorbed deeper into the tissue which allows for a slow release of growth factors, accelerating your results to the next level. At J Michelle Med Spa we use SkinPen, the only FDA approved microneedling device available ensuring the highest quality results and patient safety.

Microneedling is a minimally invasive and long time favorite treatment for multiple reasons. Microneedling uses thin needles to create small microchannels in the skin that allows for a controlled process of the skin’s self-repair mechanism, which stimulates new collagen production. The treatment is utilized to target fine lines and wrinkles, skin texture, scarring, skin tone, and overall anti-aging of the skin. At J Michelle Med Spa we use SkinPen, the only FDA approved microneedling device on available ensuring the highest quality results and patient safety.
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that involves using a device with tiny needles to create microscopic punctures in the skin. This is followed by the application of a serum made from the patient’s own blood plasma, which contains growth factors that can promote skin healing and regeneration.
PRP microneedling can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation. It can also enhance skin texture and tone and promote collagen production, which can result in firmer, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin.
PRP microneedling is generally considered safe when performed by a trained and licensed medical professional. However, as with any medical procedure, there are some risks, including infection, bleeding, and scarring. It is important to follow all pre- and post-treatment instructions provided by your healthcare provider to minimize the risk of complications.
The number of treatments needed depends on the individual patient’s skin concerns and goals. Typically, patients receive three to six treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart, for optimal results. However, some patients may see improvement after just one treatment.
There is usually little to no downtime after PRP microneedling. Patients may experience some redness, swelling, or mild bruising, but these symptoms typically subside within a few days. Patients are usually able to return to their normal activities immediately following the procedure, but it is important to avoid direct sunlight and to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen for at least one week after treatment.
What is Microneedling with PRP
Platelet-rich plasma microneedling is a cosmetic treatment that combines the use of microneedling therapy to rejuvenate and improve the appearance of the skin. This non-surgical procedure is becoming increasingly popular due to its ability to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.
During a microneedling treatment, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient’s arm and spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the rest of the blood. This then applied to the patient’s face, and microneedling is performed. Microneedling involves the use of a device that creates tiny punctures in the skin to stimulate collagen production and promote healing.
The combination of microneedling works together to enhance the natural rejuvenation process of the skin. The platelets contain growth factors that promote healing and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential components of healthy, youthful-looking skin.
One of the primary benefits of microneedling is that it can be used to treat a variety of skin concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin texture. The treatment is also safe and non-invasive, making it a popular alternative to more invasive procedures like facelifts and dermal fillers.
Microneedling also has a relatively short recovery time, with most patients able to resume their normal activities immediately following the treatment. Patients may experience some redness and swelling for a few days after the treatment, but these side effects are typically mild and short-lived.
In conclusion, microneedling is a safe and effective way to rejuvenate the skin and reduce the signs of aging. By combining the natural healing properties with the collagen-stimulating effects of microneedling, patients can achieve a more youthful and radiant complexion. As with any medical treatment, it is important to consult with a qualified healthcare provider to determine if microneedling is appropriate for your individual needs.
