Microneedling with PRP in Jacksonville, FL

Microneedling and PRP therapy are two treatments that, together, are often referred to as the “vampire facial” because it involves using your own blood. For microneedling, our aestheticians utilize SkinPen® — the first and only FDA-approved device designed especially for microneedling — which further enhances results.

“I am writing this article in praise of my aesthetician, Chris Weber at PVPS. I have been going to Chris at PVPS for several years now, and thoroughly have enjoyed her tips and especially the expert and thorough knowledge she expends through years of her attending the most advanced progressive symposia and certifications in skincare. My skin always looks marvelous when I follow in her advice on skincare, and many family and friends have now made PVPS their skincare mecca of choice and Chris as their aesthetician. No matter if I choose to use the skincare that she recommends or to first test drive the skincare products, I always return to get those products because quite honestly my skin just looks and feels better! Again, I returned to Chris to follow up and heed her suggestions of what would help firm, moisturize, and keep my delicate eye area looking tight and smooth. I have been following this regimen and gotten many compliments. I started out after having several different skincare specialists after moving to Jacksonville, but have stayed with Chris simply because I love her amazing deep cleansing facials and how I look and feel afterward. I expected the best at PVPS, but certainly surprised that Chris has elevated my experience far beyond my own expectations, she is superior at her craft! Chris is the total package for indulgence, experience, and complete relaxation!”

The Science of Microneedling with PRP

SkinPen® microneedling involves making tiny microscopic punctures in the skin to trigger the body’s wound healing process. When paired with PRP therapy, SkinPen® microneedling can achieve truly remarkable results because the PRP heals and rejuvenates the body’s delicate dermal tissues by using your blood platelets. It also uses your body’s natural healing abilities to regenerate tissues and your blood to stimulate brand-new cells. 

Microneeding with PRP Treatment Details

Prior to the microneedling portion of your treatment, someone from our medical staff will draw your blood for the PRP collection. The drawn blood will then be taken to our lab for the separation process, where your platelets and growth factors will be turned into PRP. 

Next, your skin will be numbed. This takes 10-15 minutes, and then the microneedling will begin (which takes 20-25 minutes). For the microneedling treatment, Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery employs innovative technology (SkinPen®) to create small holes in your skin. The little needles used will not damage your skin, but will instead help stimulate the production of collagen. Once the microneedling is done, the PRP serum will be placed on the skin to sink in. The PRP serum will remain on the skin to be fully absorbed, but you’ll be able to cleanse later in the day. 

This treatment can also be combined with a filler or wrinkle relaxer for even better results. Total treatment time is about 45 minutes.

Following your microneedling with PRP procedure, you may experience some regular side effects such as swelling, bruising, and redness. We recommend that you do not wear makeup, use abrasive skin cleansers, or submerge in pools for around 72 hours following your treatment. Activities like this could expose your skin to harsh chemicals and bacteria, which could lead to adverse reactions. You also need to reduce sun exposure and use protective measures when going outside. 


The results from microneedling with PRP may not be visible right away, but the growth factors in the platelet-rich plasma serum will help to stimulate the growth of healthier, stronger skin. Final results are usually seen within several weeks as the skin works to repair and heal itself. To get your best results, you may need to get several treatments initially and then maintenance sessions. We will go over realistic expectations during your consultation so you know what to expect after your treatment.

Who is Microneeding with PRP Best For?

A great candidate for microneedling with PRP is nearly any individual looking to improve their skin. However, SkinPen® microneedling is not recommended for those who:

  • Are pregnant or breastfeeding 
  • Have an allergy to stainless steel
  • Have a bleeding disorder
  • Have irritated or unhealthy skin where they seek treatment
  • Are taking any medicine that contains isotretinoin
