Microneedling is an effective treatment that is used to produce collagen in the skin, resulting in improved skin tone and overall complexion. At our plastic surgery practice in Phoenix, AZ, our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. G. Robert Meger, combines microneedling techniques with PRP (platelet rich plasma) therapy. During this procedure, the microneedles will make small punctures on the surface of the facial skin, automatically triggering the body’s healing process and collagen production. The PRP, taken from the patient’s blood, will be applied to further stimulate healing and allow the skin to be stronger and smoother. This is an ideal treatment for addressing acne, scarring, sun damage, and other facial blemishes. Schedule a consultation at G. Robert Meger, M.D. P.C. to learn more.

What to Expect
A microneedling procedure will take place in our Phoenix, AZ practice under the skilled hands of our licensed aesthetician. During the procedure, a device containing tiny needles will be passed over the skin, allowing it to make micro holes on the area being treated. The sensation is similar to sand paper on the skin and should cause little discomfort. Once the microneedling is finished, the platelet rich plasma which was taken from the patient’s blood sample and purified in a centrifuge machine, will be administered directly on the small wounds created by the needles. The healing process will begin to ensue directly after the treatment with the holes closing very quickly. The entire process should take between 30 – 60 minutes.
Some results can be seen right after treatment, but gradual improvement will become visible within a few weeks following the microneedling procedure. It is usually recommended for patients to undergo 2 – 3 treatments to yield the most optimal results, though some patients can see improvement after just one session. Patients can continue to see improvement for up to 6 months following their last session before their final results are revealed. Marked improvement in the skin can last for years if the patient follows a good skincare regime.
