Our skin is our body’s largest organ. Keeping our skin happy and healthy is often easier said than done, especially as we start to get older. We lose much-needed elasticity, and our collagen levels can start to drop as early as our mid-20s. That’s why many patients are turning to minimally-invasive micro-needling treatments.

At Derma-Tech Medical Spa, micro-needling treatments are administered with or without PRP (platelet rich plasma.) and are performed by our skilled Aesthetician ensuring an optimal outcome with little to no pain, side effects, or need for a long recovery. Today, we’ll discuss a few of the major benefits you can expect from micro-needling with or without PRP.


Short, In-Office Procedure

Although it’s not the shortest of procedures time-wise, most patients are able to fit regular micro-needling with or without PRP treatments into their busy lifestyles. Most patients can expect to be in and out of their treatment in less than 2-hours. Prior to treatment, a topical numbing agent is applied and you’ll undergo a simple blood draw but only if you elect to include PRP application.)  

Combat A Variety of Concerns

One of the best things about micro-needling with PRP is the ability to tackle individual concerns while also providing total skin rejuvenation. Enjoy a blemish-free complexion that’s smoother, firmer, and more toned. Patients can address everything from lax skin to minor scars, wrinkles, and enlarged pores.

#3: No-Downtime Treatments

Micro-needling plus PRP increases circulation, boosts collagen levels, and facilitates faster cellular turnover. The minimally-invasive procedure needs little time for recovery. Most patients are able to get back to their normal day-to-day routine immediately after treatment. You may experience mild swelling, redness, or tenderness at the treatment site. Side effects typically subside within several hours to a few days.

#4: Perfect for Preventative Care

Regular micro-needling with PRP treatments can improve your skin’s overall health. The procedure helps reverse visible signs of aging while also boosting collagen levels for gorgeously glowing skin. The procedure is safe and effective for patients of all ages seeking to keep young skin looking healthy and fresh.


#5: Total Body Rejuvenation

While most men and women consider micro-needling solely as a facial rejuvenation treatment, that’s just not the case. Yes, micro-needling can produce some exceptional results when it comes to treating the face. But, the procedure is also beneficial for patients who want an anti-aging treatment for the body. At Derma-Tech Medical Spa, we perform micro-needling with or without PRP treatments for face, neck, décolleté, and hand rejuvenation.

Is Micro-needling Right for You?

Micro-needling is a highly-customizable procedure. It’s safe for both men and women with a range of aesthetic concerns. If you’d like to dramatically improve your skin’s health with a non-surgical procedure, you may be a good fit for micro-needling with or without PRP. During your in-person consultation, your skincare specialist will help determine your candidacy for the procedure.
