Understanding the Magic Behind Microneedling and PRP


In the realm of aesthetic treatments, certain procedures have managed to capture the imagination of both professionals and beauty enthusiasts alike. One such combination that has gained significant attention in recent years is Microneedling paired with PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma). At Aesthetic Nirvana, we frequently field questions about this duo, and for a good reason. Let’s unveil the magic behind Microneedling and PRP.


Microneedling – A Quick Overview:

Microneedling, often referred to as collagen induction therapy, involves the use of a device equipped with fine needles to create thousands of tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the skin’s top layer. This controlled injury triggers the body to increase collagen and elastin production, resulting in improved texture and firmness.


Benefits of Microneedling:

  • Reduction of Fine Lines and Wrinkles: The boost in collagen and elastin smoothens and rejuvenates the skin.
  • Improved Skin Texture: Microneedling can help diminish scars, pore size, and stretch marks.
  • Enhanced Product Absorption: The micro-channels created allow skincare products to penetrate deeper into the skin.

PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) – What is it?

PRP is a concentrate of platelet-rich plasma derived from your own blood. After drawing a small amount of blood, it’s spun in a centrifuge to separate the plasma and platelets from other blood components. This “liquid gold,” rich in growth factors, promotes cell regeneration.

Microneedling with PRP: The Perfect Pairing

When PRP is used in conjunction with Microneedling, it amplifies the treatment’s benefits. The application of PRP immediately after Microneedling ensures the plasma’s penetration into the deeper skin layers. Here’s why they’re a match made in aesthetic heaven:

  • Enhanced Healing: The growth factors in PRP boost the skin’s natural healing processes.
  • Increased Collagen Production: While Microneedling alone stimulates collagen, adding PRP takes the production up a notch.
  • Radiant Skin Tone: PRP helps improve overall skin tone and texture, making it look luminous and youthful.
  • Diminished Scars: The combination is particularly effective in reducing the appearance of acne scars.

What to Expect After the Treatment:

  • Mild swelling, redness, and a sensation similar to a sunburn are common post-procedure effects. These typically subside within 24 to 72 hours.
  • Over the following weeks, the skin begins its natural regeneration process, and the results become evident. Improved texture, tone, and a radiant glow are often noted.
  • Optimal results are generally seen after a series of treatments, typically spaced about a month apart.


The fusion of Microneedling and PRP offers a potent solution for those seeking natural, long-lasting rejuvenation. By harnessing the body’s own healing mechanisms, this combination delivers results that are both remarkable and enduring.
