What are the side effects of microneedling with PRP?
There are no negative side effects that result from microneedling with PRP. Your skin may be slightly pink and feel a little sunburned after the procedure, but this is a common result as your body heals the wounds created by the micro-needles. Your skin should completely recover in 24-72 hours depending on your body’s healing process.
How many treatments do I need and how often can microneedling with PRP be done?
Your treatments will depend on the areas you are trying to fix, how many, and the size of those areas. Microneedling can be repeated from 4 to 6 weeks with at least 3 treatments spaced over a four-week period. Some scar reduction may require 3 to 6 treatments.
Does the microneedling hurt?
You may feel a slight prickling during the procedure on your skin, but many patients report the treatment being a lot less painful than they thought it would be.
How much blood do you take?
One syringe of blood has enough PRP inside to treat the whole face.
