Microneedling with PRP treatments are typically quick with minimal discomfort. Prior to treatment, Dr. Karolak will clean and prepare the area including the application of a topical numbing agent. Your actual procedure can be done in as little as 30-45 minutes, allowing you to easily fit treatments into your day-to-day routine. In most cases, you can expect to be in the office a little over an hour when adding PRP to your microneedling.
Some patients report seeing immediate improvement after their microneedling treatment. Although your skin may feel firmer and tighter, an optimal outcome typically isn’t seen for 2-3 weeks post-treatment. Microneedling with PRP produces long-lasting results with collagen renewal occurring for several months and improved texture for 6+ months. Maintenance treatments can be done as necessary along with daily topical skin care to prolong the outcome of your initial sessions.
Many patients are able to get the results they want with 1-2 treatments, while others may require a series of in-office treatments to achieve optimal skin health.
