Microneedling with PRF

Microneedling is a skin rejuvenating treatment that uses a small hand-held device with tiny needles that create microchannels or tiny holes in the skin’s surface. These microchannels immediately trigger the healing process, producing collagen and elastin in the deeper layers of the skin. Collagen production is crucial to our skin’s integrity. More collagen means a more youthful appearance. Microneedling improves the texture and firmness of the skin, and it reduces large pores, stretch marks, and treats acne scarring.

Platelet-Rich Fibrin, also known as PRF is an FDA-approved comprehensive therapy used to enhancing the natural healing process. In PRF, the patient’s own blood is dran, spun down in a centrifuge and the plasma isolated to use during the microneedling treatment. The plasma or “liquid gold” contains growth factors that promotes a fast recovery and better results.

Microneedling with PRF FAQ

Prior to the treatment a topical numbing cream is applied. After cleansing the face, the Microneedling device is moved across the skin creating tiny punctures. The depth of the needle can be adjusted depending on the condition of the skin and the desired results. 
Most patients do not find the treatment painful; it has more of a sandpaper-like sensation rather than the feel of needles. Topical numbing cream is applied 15 – 30 minutes prior to the procedure to help make the treatment more comfortable.

A series of treatments two to four treatments spaced one month apart is recommended. Depending on your skin type and desired results, additional treatments may be needed. We recommend a skin health consultation with one of our experienced medical aestheticians to determine the best treatment plan for you.

There is minimal downtime with a Microneedling with PRF treatment. It may feel like a light sunburn, with some redness and light peeling for around 3 days. For more aggressive treatments, mild redness and peeling may be experienced for 5 – 7 days. Keeping the skin hydrated will help with the healing time. We recommend avoiding heat, exercise, and sweating on the day of treatment. Sunscreen or makeup and be resumed the next day with a clean application.

PRF is isolated through a specialized process in which the patient's blood is collected and spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich fibrin. This concentrated PRF is then applied during the microneedling treatment to enhance results.

The results of microneedling with PRF can last for several months to a year, depending on individual factors such as your skin type, age, and lifestyle. This treatment stimulates collagen production and promotes natural skin regeneration, leading to lasting improvements in skin texture and firmness.


When it comes to acne scarring, microneedling with PRF can provide a permanent solution. The micro-injuries created during the procedure can effectively break up scar tissue and stimulate skin healing, resulting in smoother, scar-free skin over time. For optimal results and to maintain the overall rejuvenation of the skin, a series of treatments is typically recommended.

Microneedling with PRF is considered a safe and effective procedure when performed by skilled professionals like those at Glow Dermspa. Our team follows strict protocols to ensure patient safety and minimize risks.

Yes, microneedling with PRF has been found to naturally improve acne scars. The treatment process can break up scar tissue, cause thickening of the skin, and create new collagen and elastin. This results in a smoother appearance of the skin’s surface. The number of treatments for acne depend on the condition of your skin, your collagen response and your desired results. On averages we recommend a series of three to six treatments spaced four weeks apart to see improvement of acne scarring.

As your skin reacts to the punctures, you will have an immediate glow, but Microneedling results build with time. This is because your body increases the production of collagen and elastin for weeks. Visible changes with the skin develop over the course of several days and weeks. Your results can continue to improve for up to six months.

Microneedling with PRF is considered more effective than regular microneedling due to the addition of platelet-rich fibrin, which enhances the skin's natural healing process and stimulates more collagen production for improved results.

PRF is basically the newer and better version of PRP. We like to think of PRF as PRP 2.0. The way the blood is processed in PRF vs PRP, more healing factors are generated, making the treatment more effective. The “liquid gold” is richer. PRF is also completely natural whereas PRP includes some additives or anti-coagulants. The absence of these extra additives in the PRF allows the PRF to steadily release the growth factors into the skin over a longer period of time, enhancing the results compared to regular PRP.

The Vampire facial is Microneedling with PRP. Although similar to a vampire facial, microneedling with PRF is a richer treatment with longer release of growth factors into the skin leading to better results.
It is recommended to avoid alcohol for at least 24 hours after a microneedling with PRF treatment to ensure optimal healing and reduce the risk of side effects.
It is recommended to avoid strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours after microneedling with PRF to minimize the risk of inflammation and ensure proper healing.
You should wait at least 24 hours after your microneedling with PRF treatment before gently washing your face with a mild cleanser and lukewarm water.
To prepare for microneedling with PRF, avoid sun exposure, exfoliants, and retinol products for at least a week prior to your appointment. Glow Dermspa will provide detailed pre-treatment instructions via text prior to your appointment.

How Microneedling with PRF Works

Microneedling with PRF combines the benefits of traditional microneedling with the natural healing power of platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) to rejuvenate the skin.

The treatment begins with the creation of micro-channels in the skin using a specialized microneedling device with tiny needles. This stimulates the skin’s natural healing response and encourages the production of collagen and elastin.

The PRF, obtained from the patient’s own blood, is then applied to the treated area. Rich in growth factors and healing proteins, the PRF accelerates skin regeneration, enhances collagen production, and improves overall skin quality. With Glow Dermspa’s skin care experts, you can achieve smoother, firmer, and more radiant skin through this advanced treatment.

What to Expect

At your microneedling with PRF appointment, your Glow Dermspa skin specialist will begin by discussing your skin concerns and desired outcomes. A personalized treatment plan will be developed to address your unique needs and ensure optimal results.

Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed and a topical numbing cream may be applied to ensure your comfort during the procedure. Once the skin is prepared, your specialist will draw a small amount of blood to obtain the PRF. This blood sample will be processed in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich fibrin.

Next, the microneedling device is gently moved across the skin, creating micro-channels that trigger the body’s natural healing response. The PRF is then applied topically to the treated area, allowing it to penetrate deeply and enhance the rejuvenation process.

Microneedling with PRF Treatment Types

Microneedling with PRF can address a variety of skin concerns and enhance overall skin health.
Microneedling with PRF is an effective treatment for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The combination of microneedling and PRF stimulates collagen production, resulting in smoother, more youthful-looking skin. This is a great option to treat fine lines around the mouth, commonly referred to as “smokers lines” (even if you’ve never smoked). It can soften the appearance of these lines, while maintaining a natural look to the perioral area.
This treatment is particularly beneficial for those looking to minimize the appearance of acne scars. Microneedling with PRF promotes skin regeneration and collagen formation, which helps to improve skin texture and reduce the visibility of scars.
Microneedling with PRF can help to tighten and firm the skin by promoting collagen production and enhancing the skin’s natural healing process. This leads to improved skin elasticity and a firmer, more toned appearance.
Microneedling with PRF can improve the appearance of stretch marks by promoting collagen production and skin regeneration. This helps to restore skin elasticity and reduce the visibility of stretch marks.

Microneedling with PRF can help to reduce the appearance of enlarged pores by promoting collagen production and improving skin texture. This leads to a smoother, more refined complexion with less visible pores.

This treatment can improve overall skin texture and radiance by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential for maintaining healthy skin. A series of Microneedling treatments can truly transform the skin texture and bring back beautiful glow.

Microneedling with PRF can be used to address hair loss and thinning by stimulating the hair follicles and promoting blood circulation in the scalp. This encourages hair growth and improves overall hair density. Visit our PRF for hairloss page for more on PRF hairloss treatments.
