What is Microneedling with PRP?
BioWell Therapeutics is proud to offer microneedling, a process that makes tiny holes into the skin on your face, neck, or torso to stimulate skin restoration. As an additional benefit, your platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can be applied to the same area to help cells heal and permit the skin to begin growing new cells. When performed together, these treatments serve to decrease the appearance of scars, fine lines, wrinkles, spots, and other skin issues. The texture of your skin can be significantly enhanced to look smoother and more even without damaging the epidermis. If you'd like to find out more about microneedling with PRP, schedule a one-on-one consultation with skilled physician Dr. Daniel Skinner at his office in Huntsville, AL.

Our Microneedling and Platelet-Rich Plasma Techniques
Before the microneedling portion of your treatment takes place, someone from our team will draw some blood for your PRP collection. The blood will then be taken to our laboratory for the separation process where the stem cells, platelets, and growth factors can be condensed into PRP. For your microneedling treatment, BioWell Therapeutics uses the innovative Rejuvapen® to make small holes in your skin. The little needles used won't harm your skin but instead will help stimulate the production of collagen. When the microneedling is done, the PRP serum will be applied to the skin to sink in. After the PRP is completely absorbed, we'll clear away the serum and cleanse your skin.
Microneedling with PRP FAQ
How effective are microneedling with PRP treatments?
Microneedling with PRP treatment results may not be visible right away; however, the healing factors from the platelet-rich plasma serum helps to boost the growth of healthier, stronger skin. To get your best results, you should get an initial series of treatments and then switch to maintenance treatments. Your aesthetician will go over realistic expectations in your consult, so you are happy with your results.
How many microneedling with PRP treatments should I get?
At first, you may prefer to get multiple treatments scheduled every 2 – 3 weeks. Depending on the initial condition of your complexion and your specific goals, our team will develop a treatment plan to rejuvenate the health and appearance of your complexion. In between treatments, you may want to schedule another skin treatment to remove dead skin layers and nourish the new growth.
How often should I get microneedling with PRP treatments?
After an initial series of treatments, you may want to get maintenance microneedling with PRP sessions 2 – 4 times a year. These will vary based on the health of your complexion plus your goals, so our team will help you decide on your unique microneedling with PRP plan. Your aesthetician will be able to recommend how often you should get treatments to keep your complexion strong and healthy.
