About Microneedling with PRP
Kind Health Group offers microneedling, a process that punctures little holes into the skin on your face, neck, or chest to stimulate skin repair. As an extra benefit, your platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can be applied to the same area to help tissue heal and enable the skin to grow new cells. These two treatments together are often referred to as the vampire facial and can lessen the appearance of wrinkles, scars, dark spots, large pores, and other skin problems. The texture of your skin could be greatly improved to appear smoother and more even without damaging the skin.

The ideal candidate for microneedling with PRP would be anybody looking to modify the appearance or texture of the surface of their face. Dry skin, uneven skin tone, harsh texture, age spots, loose skin, wrinkles, acne and scarring are skin conditions that could benefit from a microneedling with PRP treatment. This therapy can also be employed to combat the effects of sun damage that may have caused skin to have a rough texture or hyperpigmentation.
Prior to the microneedling part of your treatment, someone from our medical staff will draw your blood for the PRP collection. The drawn blood will then be taken to our lab for the separation process where your stem cells, platelets, and growth factors will be made into PRP. For the microneedling treatment, Kind Health Group utilizes modern technology to create miniscule holes in your skin. The tiny needles used will not damage your skin but will instead help stimulate the production of collagen. Once the microneedling is finished, the PRP serum will be put on the skin to sink in. After the PRP is fully absorbed, we will remove the serum and cleanse your skin.
What to Expect
Following your microneedling with PRP therapy, you might experience some ordinary effects such as swelling, redness, and bruising. We recommend that you do not wear makeup, use abrasive skin cleansers or submerge in chlorinated pools for about 72 hours after treatment. Activities such as these may expose your skin to harsh chemicals and bacteria which could lead to adverse reactions. You also ought to intentionally avoid sun exposure or use protective measures when going outside. Final results are generally seen within several weeks as the skin works to repair and heal itself.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does microneedling with PRP cost?
Treatments of microneedling and PRP will be priced based on the size and number of areas being treated. In your initial consultation with your technician, the cost can be estimated once a custom treatment plan is created. Kind Health Group often offers discounts on packages of several microneedling with PRP treatments in addition to monthly specials. You can ask about these and payment methods we accept when you schedule an appointment.
How effective are microneedling with PRP treatments?
Microneedling with PRP treatment results may not be visible right away, but the growth factors in the PRP (platelet-rich plasma) serum helps to boost the growth of stronger, healthier skin. To get your optimal results, you might need to get an initial series of treatments and then maintain your results with semi-annual treatments. Your technician will go over what to expect during your initial consultation so you are happy with your results.
How many microneedling with PRP treatments should I get?
At first, you may want to schedule microneedling with PRP treatments once every 2 – 3 weeks. Depending on the initial condition of your skin and your specific concerns, your technician will develop a microneedling with PRP treatment plan to restore the health and appearance of your complexion. In between microneedling with PRP treatments, you may want to schedule a facial or other skin treatment to nourish the new growth and remove dead skin cells.
How often should I get microneedling with PRP treatments?
After an initial series of treatments, you may want to schedule maintenance microneedling with PRP sessions at least 2 – 4 times a year. This will vary based on the health and age of your skin as well as your goals, so we will help you create your custom microneedling with PRP treatment plan. Your technician will be able to make recommendations on how often you should get maintenance sessions so your skin remains strong, radiant, and healthy.
Should I get microneedling with PRP or injectable wrinkle treatments?
Although microneedling with PRP provides long-term rejuvenation like stronger, healthier skin, other treatments deliver more immediate results. Depending on your goals, you might want microneedling with PRP alone or you could combine it with a wrinkle treatment, like BOTOX or a dermal filler. In your initial consultation with your technician, they will develop your personalized treatment plan to match all your needs and wants.
