Who is a candidate for Microneedling?
An ideal candidate for microneedling wants to renew the appearance and texture of their skin. When uneven skin tone, wrinkles, and acne scars make you feel embarrassed about your skin, microneedling may help. Treatments can also combat the effects of sun damage that leave many people with a dull complexion. Patients who are currently pregnant or nursing are not candidates for microneedling at this time.

What to expect during microneedling
Before starting any procedure, Wellness Diagnostics & Medispa will cleanse your skin — so it's free of dirt, oil, and makeup. We then use a handheld device to gently roll tiny needles over the surface of your skin. This creates micro-injuries that stimulate collagen production and help enhance the appearance of aging skin. The purpose of microneedling is to generate new tissue for smoother, firmer, and more toned skin. Benefits include:
- Requires little downtime
- Considered safe for most skin types and tones
- Less invasive than cosmetic surgery
WHAT ARE PLATELET-RICH PLASMA INJECTIONS?
Microneedling can be combined with platelet-rich plasma to enhance the health and appearance of your skin. To begin, Dr. Tumbaga or a member of our team will take a small sample of blood, then use a special device to isolate the growth factors.
Platelet-rich plasma is often used to rejuvenate cells and slow down the aging process. Sports physicians and orthopedic surgeons use this therapy to heal injuries and treat osteoarthritis, but it also helps aesthetic medicine specialists treat the following conditions:
- Hair loss
- Uneven skin tone
- Saggy skin
Once the PRP is administered into the treatment areas after microneedling, patients can reap the skin rejuvenation results! You'll notice smoother, tighter skin with less scarring over time.
Microneedling with PRP FAQs
Can I combine other treatments with microneedling?
Microneedling creates channels that make it easier for treatments to refresh your skin. That's why microneedling is performed at the same time as other skin treatments like platelet-rich plasma. During your anti-aging consultation, Dr. Tumbaga will explain which procedures and add-ons would enhance your microneedling and benefit your skin.
How many treatments are recommended for optimal results?
Most patients need 3 – 6 microneedling sessions to see their best results. However, the number of sessions you require will depend on your cosmetic goals. Microneedling can be performed every 4 – 6 weeks or as recommended. Our team can provide a more accurate estimate in-office. We suggest getting maintenance sessions every six months once your skin goals are reached.
Is microneedling safe for everyone?
Microneedling is appropriate for most skin tones and types and can be applied to areas like the face, arms, neck, and chest. Since micro-injuries are so small, most patients won't experience many side effects. Microneedling is not recommended if you've been on Accutane in the last few months or if you have an open wound, active skin infection, or herpes simplex. Additionally, you may not be a candidate if you are nursing, pregnant, or undergoing radiation therapy.
