Is Microneedling With PRP Better?

Microneedling is known as an effective treatment for many skin concerns. However, new technologies and advancements have led to finding ways to improve the efficacy of microneedling even more. When considering their microneedling options, patients often ask us, “Is microneedling with PRP better?”

The answer is usually yes. Platelet rich plasma supercharges your body’s healing response which can improve the results of standard microneedling and help you heal faster. Microneedling creates micro-injuries that instigate your body’s healing response which produces more collagen, elastin, and other proteins which fill in acne scars, address sun damage, and more. 

When you choose to add PRP to microneedling, PRP is a substance that naturally occurs during the healing process. Therefore, it speeds up the response and supplements the healing for all around better results. There are times where traditional microneedling may be recommended over PRP, such as for those who cannot have their blood drawn, or those who only want to treat superficial or minor concerns.

However, microneedling with PRP is known to provide great results and treat a variety of skin conditions. Unlike other esthetic treatments, it is also safe and effective on all skin types and tones.
