Many people have already heard about micro-needling, but not as many know that its results can be further enhanced with PRP. Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, has already been used in medicine for years. Only recently have medical professionals seen its use for aesthetic treatments. At Lakeside Dermatology, we offer our patients the option to receive their micro-needling treatment with PRP.

Micro-Needling with PRP: A Natural Treatment
One of the most beneficial aspects of PRP is that it is naturally produced in the body. Platelets found in the blood have amazing regenerative properties. When concentrated and re-administered to the body, they can encourage it to renew itself in nearly miraculous ways.
When included as part of your micro-needling treatment, PRP greatly promotes skin revitalization. The combination boosts collagen production and helps the skin look smooth and youthful.
What Can Micro-Needling with PRP Treat?
Micro-needling with PRP is a versatile treatment that can help you address many different skin concerns, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Uneven pigmentation
Micro-needling is one of the easiest ways to restore your skin’s integrity. With PRP, the results are even more dramatic.
What’s Involved in Micro-Needling with PRP?
A small sample of blood is first drawn from the patient’s body before it is spun in a centrifuge. Once the platelets have been concentrated and separated from the rest of the blood, it is applied to the treatment area before the treatment begins.
The process of micro-needling itself is quick and straightforward. To ensure your comfort, we can apply a topical anesthetic to the area before your treatment. The entire process takes about an hour to complete, after which you will be free to go back to your regular routine. Our provider will let you know what post-treatment steps you can take to ensure that you receive the best results.
When Will I See Results?
You will notice some results within a few days of your treatment, but they will continue to improve for months afterward. This is because micro-needling promotes collagen production, a process that takes time to complete. To get the best results, we recommend multiple treatment sessions spaced at least one month apart.
