The Benefits of PRP and Microneedling Working Together

With aging comes fine lines on your face, wrinkles, and skin damage from the sun. Even with routine facial care, you may find yourself wanting to lessen the slow-progressing issues that start happening as you get older, such as elastin and collagen loss. 

Board-certified internal medicine specialists, Emilia Murray, MD, ABIM, leads our team in anti-aging services to enhance your look and help you get the results you want. At Murray’s Health & Wellness in Naples, Florida, we offer platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy and microneedling together to repair your skin, giving it a natural and more youthful appearance.

Microneedling explained

Microneedling can treat wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, scarring, and in some cases, hyperpigmentation.

During your microneedling procedure, we use a special device that has tiny needles that prick the surface of your skin, causing extremely small injuries to the targeted areas. The trauma to your skin triggers the natural production of elastin, collagen, and compounds that are crucial to your skin health. 

As they grow, your skin becomes more plump, smooth, tight, and evens out your skin tone, giving you a younger, healthier look. 

PRP explained

For your PRP therapy, we draw a small amount of blood from your arm and put it in a centrifuge to separate your platelets from your blood to create a protein-rich plasma. You have a low risk for side effects because the PRP comes from your very own blood.

PRP can be injected or applied topically, but when we use it hand-in-hand with microneedling, we spread it on top of the micro holes made by your microneedling treatment to promote skin-tightening, better skin tone, and a quicker healing process. 

How they work together

When giving you the microneedling treatment, the tiny holes in your skin are extremely receptive to a PRP topical application. The combination offers faster healing and improved results. 

The entire procedure enhances cellular repair and magnifies the production of collagen in your skin. Microneedling and PRP work together to provide an exceptional, effective outcome. Dr. Murray frequently customize your sessions adding organic vitamins and LED light therapy according to your skin needs. 


How long the results last

After treatment, your growth factors start working, but the collagen production takes about 4-6 weeks to reach its full potential and for you to see the end result. You can then expect to notice the healthy changes in your skin for about 4-6 weeks. 

To continue successful results, we recommend you come in for a follow-up session in about 8-12 weeks. If you find the benefits lasting longer for you, then simply schedule your next appointment when you’re ready.
