Microneedling with PRP

Hello Dayton1186,We recommend microneedling be done using PRP.  Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) utilizes your body’s own materials to create a serum that increases the growth factors of your skin. It can be used by itself to promote the rebuilding of skin.Hope this helps! Dr Faraz

Great question!
Microneedling is a fantastic way to get great absorption of your skin care products.  As a glide, I like to use a hyaluronic acid or even more preferably, PRP or platelet rich plasma.  PRP is a component of your own blood, which has concentrated growth factors.  This is combination with a deep microneedling treatment is a killer combination to combat fine lines, wrinkles, unwanted scarring etc.  
Best of luck to you!


We use a compounded 30% numbing cream that makes all our procedures painless. Please consult with a board certified dermatologist for treatment. Best, Dr. Emer
