Microneedling Q & A


What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a beauty treatment in which a special tool creates tiny pricks in the skin. This stimulates the skin’s own healing response and gives you smoother, tighter, and firmer skin with fewer lines and wrinkles.

Microneedling works hand-in-hand with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. PRP is a concentrated platelet solution that comes from your own blood. 

The platelets have many growth factors and cellular signaling factors that stimulate healing, promote collagen and elastin growth, and help you repair damaged areas of skin.

When might I need microneedling with PRP?

Microneedling with PRP can help with numerous skin and appearance concerns, including: 

  • Sun damage
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sagging skin around the eyes, cheeks, and chin
  • Acne scars
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Crepey thin skin

Microneedling with PRP can also help with overall skin enhancement or simply help you look younger than your years. This treatment is effective for the face as well as the neck, hands, and other areas where you have signs of aging, sun damage, and wear-and-tear.

How does microneedling with PRP work?

At OWM Integrative Wellness, the team uses the state-of-the-art DermaFrac C microneedling system. 

Most microneedling systems require pushing the tiny needles into the skin, but DermaFrac C instead uses suction to pull the skin up to create the skin pricks. This creates a far more comfortable experience for you. 

With most microneedling procedures at other practices, the providers spread PRP over the face and then push it into the skin using the needles. Unfortunately, this isn’t very efficient because most of the PRP stays on the skin surface, where it can’t help you. 

DermaFrac C solves that problem because your PRP goes into a cartridge within the device. In this way, the DermaFrac C system sends PRP directly into the skin without injections or bruises.

This method ensures that the maximum amount of PRP gets into your skin's deeper layers, where it works to help you build new collagen and elastin.


What results can I expect from microneedling with PRP?

Patients who have microneedling with PRP typically experience measurable improvements, with benefits visible in around a month. 

To maximize your results, the team recommends a series of three microneedling with PRP treatments, four weeks apart, alongside weekly microneedling.
