What is Microneedling with PRP?
Evolve Med Spa is pleased to offer microneedling, a treatment that punctures small holes in the skin on the neck, face, or chest to stimulate skin restoration. As an extra benefit, your platelet-rich plasma (PRP) may be applied to the same region to help cells heal and allow the skin to begin growing new cells. Both of these treatments together are often known as the Vampire Facial and can decrease the appearance of wrinkles, scars, spots, large pores, and other skin conditions. This can help even out your skin while also smoothing and improving the tone. If you would like to find out more about the microneedling with PRP treatment, schedule a one-on-one consultation with board-certified physician Dr. Tricia Shimer at her office in Dallas, TX.

Is Microneedling with PRP for You?
A great candidate for microneedling with PRP is any individual seeking to modify the look or feel of the surface of their skin. Uneven skin tone, dry skin, coarse texture, age spots, loose skin, acne, wrinkles, and scarring are skin conditions that could benefit from a microneedling with PRP treatment. This procedure, performed at our Dallas, TX office, may also be utilized to fight the effects of sun damage that might have caused the skin to have a rough texture or hyperpigmentation.
Our Microneedling and Platelet-Rich Plasma Techniques
Prior to the microneedling part of your session at Evolve Med Spa, a member of Dr. Shimer's medical team will draw your blood for the PRP collection. The blood will then be taken to our laboratory for the separation process during which the platelets, growth factors, and harvested cells will be condensed into PRP. For your microneedling treatment, Evolve Med Spa employs state-of-the-art technology to make small holes into your skin. The tiny needles used will not damage your skin but will instead help stimulate the production of collagen. Once the microneedling is done, the PRP serum will be applied to the skin to sink in. Once the PRP is completely absorbed, we will clear away the serum and cleanse the skin.
What to Expect after Microneedling
After your therapy, your face may appear red or swollen, or you may see some bruising. These are typical effects that will improve over time. Dr. Shimer recommends that patients do not wear makeup, use exfoliating face washes, or swim in chlorinated pools for around 72 hours after treatment. These activities could expose the skin to strong bacteria and chemicals, which could lead to negative reactions. You also need to reduce exposure to the sun or wear sunscreen, a hat, or other protection when planning to be outside. Final results are usually seen within the first month as the skin works to heal itself.
Follow-Up after Microneedling with PRP
To get your ideal results, you may need to get an initial series of treatments and then switch to maintenance treatments. You may want to get maintenance sessions at least 2 – 4 times per year at Evolve Med Spa. This will vary based on the health and age of your skin, plus your goals so our professional staff will help decide on your custom microneedling with PRP plan. Your aesthetician will discuss realistic expectations during your consultation so you know what will happen after your treatment.
Rejuvenate and Refresh
