Microneedling Q & A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling uses very tiny needles to make microtears in your skin, stimulating cell regeneration to achieve younger-looking, revitalized skin without any downtime. FIRM Med Spa uses PRP to further stimulate new cell production and enhance your results naturally.

What are the benefits of microneedling?

Some of the many benefits you can reap with microneedling at FIRM Med Spa include:

  • Smoother skin
  • Skin revitalization
  • More collagen and elastin production
  • No pain
  • No surgery
  • No downtime
  • Dramatic anti-aging results
  • Tighter skin
  • Refreshed skin
  • Fewer lines
  • Fewer wrinkles

Microneedling is a simple procedure that offers highly effective results. PRP uses platelet-rich plasma sourced from your own blood, giving you the revitalized skin you deserve in the most natural way.

Is microneedling with PRP right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for microneedling with PRP, Barbara discusses your medical history and beauty goals. She examines your skin in problem areas and lets you know what to expect during the procedure, before personalizing a treatment tailored to your needs.

What happens during microneedling?

During microneedling with PRP, Barbara first takes a sample of blood from a vein in your arm. She spins it in a centrifuge to isolate PRP from the remaining whole blood. She numbs the treatment area to ensure you avoid discomfort, uses very tiny needles to make small tears in your skin, and applies PRP to the microtears to stimulate new cell production. 

What should I expect after the procedure?

After a microneedling procedure, your skin will be red, swollen, and a little bit tender. You can ice the area if needed to enhance comfort. Make sure to protect your skin from the sun before and after each treatment. Apply ointment to the affected area if Barbara recommends it and avoid wearing makeup until she gives you the okay.

Over time as skin cells regenerate you can expect smoother, revitalized, healthier-looking skin with fewer imperfections. Repeat procedures allow you to maintain exceptional anti-aging results long-term.
