Why Microneedling with PRP Is the Hottest Trend in Facial Rejuvenation
Having great-looking skin is a huge confidence-booster at every age. If your complexion leaves something to be desired, microneedling and PRP could be the solution you’re looking for. Here’s how this duo works to rejuvenate skin.

Looking your best isn’t just about aesthetics. It’s about how you feel, too. Having a beautiful, healthy-looking complexion can help you look great, but it can also work wonders for your self-esteem.

At Bloom Health NP in Frederick, Maryland, Sheila K. Rohe, MSN, CRNP, FNP-C, helps women and men in Frederick, Maryland, look and feel their best with microneedling and platelet-rich plasma (PRP), a combination treatment that’s soared in popularity in recent years. 

Here’s how microneedling and PRP work together — and how they could help you look and feel your best. 

PRP and microneedling: The perfect couple

Both platelet-rich plasma therapy and microneedling are used on their own to treat an array of aesthetic concerns, but together, their effects are dramatically magnified.


PRP is a substance derived from your own blood. As the name implies, PRP contains high concentrations of platelets — much higher than what is normally found in your skin. Platelets contain growth factors, which also play a role in healing.

At the beginning of your treatment, we extract and process a sample of your blood. Then we inject the solution into skin, muscle, or other tissues to promote healing and tissue regeneration.


Microneedling uses a device that has a series of tiny, super-thin needles to create micro-injuries in your skin. These tiny puncture wounds trigger your body’s natural healing responses, including the development of new, healthy collagen. 

Microneedling also breaks down tough, damaged tissue, making it an ideal treatment for:

  • Scars, including acne scars
  • Fine lines
  • Fine wrinkles
  • Uneven or rough skin texture
  • Hyperpigmented areas

Microneedling can be used on its own, but it’s especially effective when combined with PRP. 

Combining microneedling with PRP

The combination of microneedling and PRP is especially effective in treating wrinkling, fine lines, and other complexion concerns because of how well the two therapies work together.

Microneedling’s controlled injuries don’t just help skin remodel itself. They also create dozens of tiny channels into the deeper layers of skin tissue. These channels allow PRP to penetrate more deeply, reaching areas of the skin where damage occurs.

Together, microneedling and PRP promote deeper tissue regeneration and collagen remodeling, so skin doesn’t just look smoother — it feels firmer, too. And because PRP is made from your own blood, there’s no risk of allergic reaction, as you might have with other products.

Most of our patients achieve maximum benefits with a series of 2-4 treatments spaced out over several weeks. Plus, we can repeat the treatment to maintain your beautiful results.
