Microneedling with PRP in Rockville
Rejuvenating & Improving Your Skin
Microneedling with PRP (platelet rich plasma) is a cutting-edge treatment for people who want younger and healthier looking skin. This procedure involves using tiny micro needles to make small holes in your skin. In doing so, your skin’s healing process is stimulated, thereby producing elastin and collagen naturally. The repair process starts right away, leading to safe, beautiful, and predictable results.
Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling with PRP causes your skin to repair itself, building healthy collagen and becoming rejuvenated in the process.
Patients most commonly use this procedure to improve their:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Surface scarring
- Tone and texture

What the Procedure Involves
The micro channels that are created in the procedure allow your skin to effectively absorb products, thereby accelerating your skin’s rejuvenation. Using platelet rich plasma therapy, we take a tiny amount of plasma from your blood and apply it in order to improve your skin’s texture, tone, and freshness. This treatment can be used wherever you would like to stimulate your skin’s healing process and improve its quality.
Most commonly, patients use microneedling with PRP on their:
- Surgical, acne, and other scars
- Arms, hands, chest, and face
What Microneedling with PRP Feels Like
Prior to the start of your treatment, we will place a numbing mask on your face in order to minimize discomfort. A majority of patients describe the treatment as feeling similar to rough sandpaper on their skin. When treating scars, we will need to invest more time and care so you may feel slightly more sensation then.
The side effects of this procedure are minimal and the most common one is looking as though you have a slight sunburn. The skin around your eyes may be a little puffy for a couple days, following treatment in that area. Also, you may experience peeling, flaking, or mild dryness for a few days after the procedure.
The benefits of microneedling with PRP are endless, and include:
- Improving the overall appearance of your skin
- Minimizing blotchy skin coloring
- Reducing age spots
- Reducing superficial scars from past injuries as well as acne scars
- Rejuvenating sun-damaged and aged skin
