Seven Benefits of Microneedling with PRP


Aging happens to everyone. You may have started noticing common skin issues, like fine lines and dull skin, when you look in the mirror. These problems can affect your overall confidence. The great news is that micro needling with PRP is a skin rejuvenation method that does not require plastic surgery. This treatment is a favorite at Dr. Chris Mohler’s.

Learn the benefits of micro-needling with PRP below or by scheduling an appointment in Beaufort, SC. Dr. Chris Mohler can assess your skin and design a custom treatment plan.

1. Microneedling increases collagen production

Collagen is mainly responsible for keeping our skin plump and healthy-looking. Loss of collagen is what causes signs of aging, like wrinkles and creases. Microneedling works by creating tiny micro-injuries in the skin. Your body responds to the small wounds by naturally healing itself and promoting new collagen production over time.

2. PRP enhances your results

PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, which uses growth factors and other elements from our own blood to repair damaged skin. While microneedling by itself is still beneficial, PRP takes your results to the next level. At the beginning of your skin rejuvenation treatment, a member of our team will take a small amount of your blood and place it in a centrifuge to extract the needed growth factors.

3. Treatment is trusted

Platelet-rich plasma is not just used for cosmetic purposes. Many different medical professionals use PRP because of its healing properties. For example, PRP is sometimes used by athletes who suffer from sports-related injuries. Dr. Chris Mohler uses it in his office for TMD/ TMJ repair. He is proud to offer this advanced technology to refresh your complexion.

4. Address many skin issues at once

One of the greatest advantages of microneedling and PRP is the ability to treat many skin concerns at once. Even if you do not struggle with wrinkles, this treatment can still address sun damaged and textured skin. This nonsurgical procedure is also safe and effective for nearly all skin types. Dr. Mohler and his team can address the following and more:

  • Fine lines and creases
  • Poor skin texture
  • Hyper pigmentation
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Dry skin
  • Age spots
  • Enlarged pores
  • Acne scars

5. Fast and convenient

As we mentioned, microneedling with PRP does not require plastic surgery. No incisions or long recovery periods are involved. Your appointment in Beaufort, SC should not take longer than a couple of hours. Our office can prepare you for your session during your initial assessment.

6. Little discomfort involved

Although patients feel some discomfort during their procedure, it is not considered invasive or painful. If you feel anxious about your procedure, speak with a member of our friendly team. We usually offer topical creams and numbing agents to help you feel as comfortable as possible.

7. Microneedling recovery is minimal

After microneedling with PRP, temporary side effects, like redness and swelling, are normal. We can give you simple instructions for taking care of your skin during microneedling recovery. It is critical to limit sun exposure and exfoliating products that may damage the healing skin.
