Microneedling with PRP: A Step-by-Step Guide

At Birch Pain & Spine Group, we are dedicated to offering cutting-edge treatments that promote healing, rejuvenation, and overall wellness.

One of the most effective and innovative treatments we provide is microneedling with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), a procedure that combines the regenerative capabilities of PRP with the collagen-stimulating effects of microneedling.

What is Microneedling with PRP?

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, involves using a device equipped with fine needles to create thousands of tiny, controlled punctures on the surface of the skin.

This process naturally stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins that are vital for maintaining youthful, elastic skin.

When combined with PRP, which is derived from the patient’s own blood and contains concentrated growth factors, the healing and rejuvenating properties of this treatment are significantly enhanced.

The Benefits of PRP Microneedling

There are many benefits to PRP microneedling, these benefits include:

  • Enhanced collagen production
  • Improves skin texture and tone
  • Reduces wrinkles and fine lines
  • Minimizes pore size
  • Accelerates healing
  • Natural aesthetic treatment
  • Versatile treatment that is effective for treating various skin issues
  • Safe for most skin types

Step-by-Step Guide to Microneedling with PRP

Step 1: Consultation
Your journey begins with a detailed consultation at Birch Pain & Spine Group. During this session, our specialists will evaluate your skin condition, discuss your aesthetic goals, and determine if microneedling with PRP is the right treatment for you. This is also the perfect time to ask any questions you may have about the procedure, recovery, and results.

Step 2: Preparation
On the day of the procedure, your skin will be thoroughly cleansed and a topical numbing cream will be applied. This ensures that the microneedling process is as comfortable as possible. While the numbing cream takes effect, a small sample of your blood will be drawn, typically from your arm.

Step 3: PRP Processing
The blood sample is then processed in a centrifuge to separate the plasma and concentrate the platelets. This Platelet-Rich Plasma is rich in growth factors that are essential for skin healing and rejuvenation. The preparation of PRP takes about 10 to 15 minutes.

Step 4: Microneedling Procedure
Once your skin is numb and the PRP is ready, the microneedling process begins. Using a professional microneedling device, our specialist will gently move the tool across your skin, creating micro-injuries that trigger the body’s natural healing response. The procedure typically takes about 30 minutes, depending on the areas being treated.

Step 5: Application of PRP
Immediately following the microneedling, the PRP is applied to the treated areas. The micro-injuries created by the needles allow for optimal absorption of the PRP, enhancing the regeneration of your skin. In some cases, the PRP may be injected directly into specific areas of the skin to target deeper lines and wrinkles.

Step 6: Recovery and Aftercare
After the procedure, your skin will appear slightly red and may be sensitive, similar to a mild sunburn. These effects are typically short-lived. We will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to help maximize your results and minimize discomfort. This includes advice on skincare products, sun protection, and hydration. Most patients can return to their regular activities immediately, with no downtime required.

Step 7: Observing Results
You may notice an immediate glow to your skin, but the full benefits of microneedling with PRP will become apparent over several weeks as your skin produces more collagen and elastin. The treatment can improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks, and enhance the overall texture and tone of the skin. For best results, a series of treatments may be recommended.

Microneedling with PRP at Birch Pain & Spine Group is a safe, minimally invasive procedure that harnesses your body’s own healing abilities to rejuvenate and restore skin.

Whether you’re looking to reduce the signs of aging, improve the appearance of scars, or simply give your skin a healthier, more vibrant glow, microneedling with PRP could be the perfect treatment for you.

How Do Our Patients Feel About Us?
  • "I can't thank Physian Assistant Marilyn at Birch Pain & Spine Group enough! After several months of pain in my right arm, wrist, & thumb I was no longer able to use my right hand. Instead of surgery Marilyn told me about trigger point injections. She gave me trigger point injections to ease the pain & now the pain is almost nothing & I am able to use my hand again. Marilyn also treated my shoulder for pain & I am happy to say the pain is almost gone. Thank-you Marilyn!!!"
