Microneedling with PRF at Sculpt MD

Microneedling is a popular treatment with a proven, outstanding record of rejuvenation results that uses extremely fine needles to create micro-injuries in the targeted area of the skin. This treatment triggers a boost in the production of collagen and elastin, both crucial building blocks to generate fresh, radiantly rejuvenated skin.

Microneedling treatments can be given in conjunction with serums and other types of skin treatments, such as PRF. The micro-wounds created during the microneedling process allows PRF to penetrate the skin deeper and dramatically increases the collagen production of your skin, causing your wrinkles to fade, your skin to firm, and your skin to be more elastic, healthier and more rejuvenated.

How Microneedling with PRF Transforms Skin

This PRF treatment transforms your skin by activating and enhancing the natural healing and cell regeneration process with three simple steps. Once each microneedling session is complete, the skin begins to heal itself, resulting in a more refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.

Who is a candidate for Microneedling with PRF treatments?

PRF microneedling treatments are suitable for people of all skin types, colors and textures. Men and women who would like to achieve dramatic results without surgery are likely ideal candidates. Ideal candidates should meet the following requirements:

  • Would like to achieve smoother, firmer and rejuvenated skin without a surgical procedure
  • Are experiencing skin concerns and early signs of age (skin laxity, sun spots, pigmentation issues, wrinkles and fine lines, and other concerns)
  • Are not experiencing an active acne breakout
  • Do not have skin infections
  • Have no wound healing issues
  • Has not recently gone through radiation skin treatment in the last year or suffered any skin infections in any area of concern

What happens during a Microneedling with PRF treatment?

The first step of your PRF microneedling treatment is drawing a small amount of blood, about three teaspoons, from your arm. The blood is then spun at a low G force to isolate the PRF while the microneedling portion of the treatment is done simultaneously.

During microneedling, your medical provider will use a device to create tiny channels, or micro-wounds, on the surface of the skin. This creates a controlled inflammatory response to trigger the body’s natural healing response. Depending on the size of the area, this can take only 30 minutes.

The second part of the procedure will be the application of the PRF. It will be applied directly to the channels created during the microneedling process to further stimulate the natural healing process, creation of collagen, and an overall enhancement in growth factors. This process can also take about 30 minutes, meaning one PRF microneedling treatment will take about 60 minutes on average.

Combining microneedling and PRF into a single treatment not only delivers more benefits in less time, but also improves the skin’s ability to utilize the proteins and growth factors in PRF by up to 3,000% when compared to the rate of absorption from regular topical application. This provides a significant boost in skin regeneration and support of the body’s natural healing and rejuvenation process. The combination of PRF and microneedling results in smoother, firmer and healthier skin inside and out.

How soon can I see results?

Microneedling with PRF leaves no scarring and requires no downtime or significant recovery period. Your skin may be slightly pink–the sensation is described by patients as similar to a mild sunburn. However, you can return to your normal activities right away. Your skin will fully recover in about 4-7 days. Stay out of the sun and use sunscreen to protect your skin while it’s still healing.

Your body will naturally begin to remodel your skin with the boost in collagen and elastin over the next 4-8 weeks. You will see continual improvements during this time and additional long term effects, including skin tightening and enhanced skin quality, up to 16 weeks after initial treatment.

Procedure FAQ's

Is microneedling with PRF safe?

Microneedling with PRF is a very safe, minimally-invasive treatment. PRF is derived from your own blood and carries no risk of allergic reaction.

Will it work for me?

SkinPen is a highly effective, clinically proven treatment that works for all Fitzpatrick Skin Types I-VI. SkinPen causes no damage to the skin and can be successfully used for years.

How often should I microneedle?

Your personalized treatment plan can be determined during a consultation and will depend on the areas you are trying to fix, how many, and the size of those areas. Microneedling with PRF 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.

Are there other PRF treatments?

Besides Microneedling with PRF, Sculpt MD also offers PRF Under Eye Filler, a 100% natural alternative to dermal fillers, and PRF Hair Restoration. Learn more about these PRF treatments and how they can support your aesthetic goals in a consultation.

How much blood is taken?

Typically, less than two ounces of blood are taken for this procedure, drawn from a vein in the arm.

Does microneedling hurt?

Microneedling is not considered a painful treatment, but it can be uncomfortable as the tiny needles create fine punctures within the skin. To help minimize discomfort, numbing cream is applied before the treatment begins.

How much does microneedling with PRF cost?

Microneedling costs depend on the size and the number of areas being treated. Each person’s needs are unique, and the costs are determined during your consultation.

Who should not microneedle?

Patients with skin cancer, sores, skin outbreaks or irritation in the treatment areas should not have microneedling. Additionally, patients who are taking Accutane, have bleeding disorders or allergies to stainless steel or anesthetics, are pregnant or nursing should not have microneedling.

What is recovery like?

Patients are free to return to work or their usual routines within 24 hours of their treatment. More extensive treatments may require 2-3 days for the skin to fully heal.
