Does Microneedling With PRP Reduce Pore Size?

Microneedling is one of the most effective professional skincare procedures that can benefit nearly all skin types and tones. Unlike chemical peels, there is not a risk of hyperpigmentation for darker skin tones and it can address nearly all major signs of aging and skin damage. A common skin concern many patients want to treat is pore size. Large pores have many causes including sun damage, clogged skin, and aging. When looking for a solution, patients often ask, “Does microneedling with PRP reduce pore size?”

The answer to this question is yes. Microneedling with PRP can help shrink pore size and promote a smoother complexion. The procedure combined with the regenerative powers of PRP causes faster skin cell turnover and new collagen to form. Over time, this can reduce the size of your pores. 

Microneedling creates microscopic holes in the skin that initiates the healing process. Usually, this lasts for four to six weeks as the skin repairs itself and along with it can improve or correct skin concerns. When adding PRP to this, it takes this a step further. Since PRP is a component of blood important to clotting, and one of the first signals of an injury to the body, this leads to a quicker, more aggressive response from the body. 

Therefore, microneedling with PRP is a great and versatile treatment for all types of skin concerns. When treating enlarged pores, the microneedling and PRP work together to improve skin laxity which can reduce the size of pores. To schedule a consultation, call us at 206-279-2112.
