Microneedling with PRP: The All-Natural Skin Treatment that Everyone Is Raving About

If you’re looking to touch up your face, cosmetic skin treatments like microneedling can help eliminate fine lines and wrinkles. When combined with regenerative medicine, you can encourage your body to heal itself. This keeps your skin tight, supple, and youthful long after the treatment is done. 

At Temecula Medical Group in Temecula, California, Richard Rawson, DO and his team provide concierge medical services, including aesthetic treatments like microneedling and platelet-rich plasma (PRP).

Understanding microneedling and PRP

To understand why microneedling and PRP are a good match, it’s important to learn how they work separately. 


Microneedling is a minimally invasive, effective way to rejuvenate your complexion. When your skin is injured in any way, your body rushes to repair the damage. This encourages the production of collagen and elastin, the proteins that keep your skin tight yet flexible. 

We encourage your body to produce more of these proteins by creating micro-injuries. Like the name implies, these are tiny wounds that stimulate your body’s repair response. Microneedling utilizes this concept by creating shallow, nearly painless punctures in your skin. When the healing process is done, these areas will be reinforced with fresh cells. 

PRP therapy 

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is another kind of regenerative medicine. Your blood contains platelets, which help to clot wounds and summon growth factors to the injury site. PRP therapy isolates these platelets so they can be used to heal targeted areas. 

We take a small vial of blood like any ordinary blood draw, then spin the sample in our centrifuge to isolate the platelets. This process separates the plasma and the platelets from the rest of your blood, and creates a personalized healing serum. Because it’s made using your own blood, your body will readily accept it and begin using the platelets to repair your body. 

The power of combination 

Microneedling and PRP therapy are both effective on their own, but we combine them to create an even better, rejuvenating facial. 

At Temecula Medical Group, our team uses the SkinPen® and ProGen™ systems during the dual procedure. SkinPen is a microneedling method that uses a small handheld device to delicately puncture your skin. 

Microneedling with PRP helps your skin recover faster, and it improves the efficacy of your microneedling treatment.
