PRP microneedling, also known as microneedling with PRP, combines microneedling and platelet rich plasma for improved skin rejuvenation. This procedure can treat acne scars, sun damage, and many other skin conditions and concerns. It is generally considered more effective than just microneedling. Often, when first starting out, patients will undergo a round of a few treatments spaced about four to six weeks apart. Patients sometimes ask, “How often should you do PRP microneedling?”
Generally, the answer is no more than once every four to six weeks. This is because your skin needs time to heal following each microneedling treatment. Not allowing it to heal can cause irritation and possibly hinder your results. However, some patients may be able to do the treatment every two weeks in the beginning, though this is not especially common.
After the initial round of treatments–usually four to six sessions–patients may be able to maintain results and keep up the quality of their skin with only one or two PRP microneedling sessions a year. Though, of course, this will depend on your skin and other factors like the damage you receive between treatments. Your master esthetician can discuss this more with you during your consultations and treatments.
