Microneedling & PRP Q&A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is an aesthetic treatment that works by using thin needles to create tiny injuries in the skin to trigger your skin’s natural process of healing, thus promoting collagen production. 

It’s a wonderful option for people who want to achieve impressive results but aren’t good candidates for chemical peels, laser treatments, or invasive treatment options. 

Dr. Aguirre uses a handheld, FDA-approved Exceed pen covered in needles to puncture your skin. Your body responds by creating new collagen, plumping skin from within, and improving the texture, tone, and clarity of your skin. 

Some of the concerns this treatment can address include:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Enlarged pores
  • Age spots
  • Stretch marks
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Dull skin

Genesis Health and Beauty Bar offers microneedling as a stand-alone procedure, or combines it with PRP to enhance your treatment outcomes. 

What is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a highly concentrated blood substance made from growth factors in your own blood. 

Dr. Aguirre DO takes a conventional blood draw from a vein in your arm and then spins the sample in a machine called a centrifuge. The process separates platelets from other blood components to create PRP. 

When combined with microneedling, PRP encourages your skin to start producing new collagen and revitalize cells, leading to tighter and smoother skin.

How many microneedling sessions do I need?

Most people benefit from a series of several treatments spaced out over time. Dr. Aguirre DO can recommend a treatment schedule based on your skin concerns and needs.
