The Benefits of Skin Rejuvenation with Microneedling with PRP

By: Jeanine Christian-La Touche


Having smooth, clear, vibrant skin can make a person feel their best. In our youth, an ample supply of collagen and elastin helps to keep our complexion looking healthy, but the aging process, sun damage, and other factors can deplete these resources and take a significant toll on the skin’s tone and texture. For patients hoping to address a wide range of skin concerns all at once with minimal downtime, microneedling plus PRP can be a fantastic solution. At La Touche Élite Aesthetics in Myrtle Beach, SC, board-certified registered nurse anesthetist and aesthetic expert Jeanine Christian-La Touche helps patients love their skin once again with advanced microneedling plus PRP therapy. Let’s take a closer look at the benefits of this popular skin rejuvenation treatment below.

How does microneedling with PRP work?

Microneedling plus PRP therapy is a two-part treatment. To begin, a few tablespoons of blood are drawn from the patient’s arm. The blood is spun in a specialized piece of lab equipment known as a centrifuge. This isolates the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from the red blood cells and other materials in the blood. The PRP is highly concentrated in growth factors and reparative components, which will help to boost the effects of the treatment.

Using the FDA-approved SkinPen®, Jeanine then performs the microneedling portion of the treatment by rolling the device across the skin’s surface. Thousands of tiny punctures, called micro-injuries, are made on the skin in order to stimulate a healing response and trigger the production of collagen and elastin. Finally, the PRP serum is applied to the skin and will absorb via the micro-injuries, accelerating the natural healing and regeneration processes.

How does microneedling plus PRP help your skin?

Unlike other skincare products and treatments, which are designed to treat a specific, isolated complaint, microneedling plus PRP can make a remarkable number of improvements to the complexion in a single treatment. Common concerns that can be addressed with microneedling plus PRP therapy include:

  • Enlarged pores
  • Acne scarring
  • Other types of scars
  • Fine lines
  • Mild wrinkles
  • Sun damage
  • Dark spots
  • Age spots
  • Redness
  • Blotchiness
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Rough skin
  • Dull skin
  • Stretch marks

Where can microneedling plus PRP be used?

Most often, microneedling with PRP is used to rejuvenate the facial complexion, but this is not the only application for treatment. Many patients undergo microneedling with PRP to address mild skin laxity, scarring, stretch marks, and other concerns in areas such as the neck or abdomen.
