For maximum impact and best results, microneedling can be used with platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy to reach deeper into the skin. Also known as the "Vampire Facial," small amounts of the patients own blood will be used to create a concentrated serum from the platelets, growth factors, and active proteins. After the microneedling using SkinPen technology creates injuries that stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, the PRP serum is applied to the face to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, as well as improve the tone and texture of the skin. At Surface Skin Spa in Plano, TX, patients can get visible skin rejuvenation without the time and expense of facelift surgery.
About SkinPen Technology
At Surface Skin Spa, we use the SkinPen handheld microneedling device to create tiny microchannels in the skin before applying the PRP serum. SkinPen is adjustable to distribute needles at a 90-degree angle and provide a more customized treatment by allowing for more precision. The SkinPen device can be used on all skin types and all areas of the face to maintain healthy skin. Ask your skin consultant at Surface Skin Spa about the many benefits of using SkinPen for microneedling.

"I highly recommend the staff at this facility. I’ve had surgeries, injections and also go regularly for Solissa to do her magic on my 60 year old skin:). Just had fillers from Nicole for the first time. What a great job she did! She was able to achieve a very natural but much improved look.....better than I could have imagined. She is truly talented and I’m very pleased! You will be too. Give them a try!"- W.K. / Yelp / Mar 11, 2021

"Amazing Results! Extremely Satisfied - I consulted Dr. Yaker for lipo on the inner thighs. After meeting with him and reviewing his results, I also had a “re-do” of lipo that was done by another surgeon on the flanks, back, and upper abdomen. Dr. Yaker is an amazing surgeon with an excellent bedside manner. His skill, attention to detail, and desire to do the best possible work-the first time, is why I will be seeing Dr. Yaker again should I need any other work done! I wish I had sought his services the first time. I am beyond pleased with the outcome. I highly recommend Dr. Yaker!"- S. / RealSelf / Mar 02, 2021
Originally used in orthopedic medicine, reconstructive surgery, and dentistry, the principles of PRP therapy have been applied in dermatology for skin rejuvenation. A small amount of blood is drawn from the patient and then spun in a special centrifuge until the platelets and growth factors are concentrated, which turns it into platelet-rich plasma (PRP). The prepared PRP is then applied to the face after the microneedling procedure for 15-20 minutes as it stimulates the growth of new collagen and tissue.
What to Expect
Microneedling with PRP therapy stimulates collagen growth for facial rejuvenation that helps to improve wrinkles, puffiness under the eyes, as well as enhancing the overall skin tone, texture, and elasticity. For the first 1-3 days after the procedure, patients may have some mild swelling, redness, and bruising. Patients will begin to see improvements to their skin in about 3-4 weeks after their treatment, which usually last about 6-18 months. For better results, patients can have multiple treatments, scheduled every 1-2 months. The cost of a microneedling with PRP treatment at Surface Skin Spa is $600 for one treatment and $1,500 for three treatments.

Microneedling with PRP FAQs
Natural Fountain of Youth?
PRP Therapy, with or without microneedling, is a great way to use your own platelets to rejuvenate your appearance. PRP Therapy helps patients with dark circle and puffiness under the eyes, fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, cheeks, and eyes, and makes the skin healthier, brighter, and firmer. Consider combining PRP Therapy with another professional facial service, like a chemical peel or injectable wrinkle filler, for faster, more dramatic results.
