Microneedling- What You Need to Know
If you’ve been searching for a treatment that can naturally revitalize the quality of your facial skin, microneedling may be the thing for you. Microneedling is a quick and easy option that can improve your skin’s texture, targeting wrinkles, lines, and other mild skin issues. Read on to learn more about what microneedling can do for you.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling involves a series of tiny needles that puncture the skin around your face. The procedure looks to restore a fresher, more youthful brilliance to your facial skin. When your facial skin begins to heal after the procedure, it will naturally make collagen and elastin, which can help diminish skin flaws. Many patients choose to add PRP (plasma rich platelets) for potentially quicker and better results.
Microneedling is an excellent choice for anyone who is looking to improve the appearance of their skin. The medical aestheticians at Dr. Jason Cooper Plastic Surgery and Medspa frequently provide first-rate microneedling services to patients in the Jupiter and Palm Beach areas.

What are the Benefits of Microneedling?
Microneedling provides many benefits that may give you a more youthful and natural look. If done properly, microneedling:
● significantly boosts collagen & elastin.
● helps reduce scarring, lines, wrinkles, uneven skin, and other skin imperfections.
● gives your skin a more plump, youthful, and luminous appearance.
● stimulates hair follicles.
Does Microneedling Hurt?
While microneedling involves a series of needles that make tiny perforations in your skin, most say that it is minimally painful. You will be given a numbing cream before the procedure, so you don’t have to worry about too much pain during the treatment. Most patients are surprised to find that it was not nearly as painful as they thought, though some did experience some mild discomfort. Microneedling may also make you bleed a bit, which is to be expected.
Microneedling with PRP
Adding PRP, or plasma-rich platelets, to your microneedling session may help to make the process even more effective.
Before the procedure, we will draw some of your blood. We will then use a centrifuge to separate the PRP from the rest of your blood. We will then take the PRP and apply it to your face during your microneedling treatment or use it as a natural serum after your treatment.
PRP has a higher concentration of platelets than normal blood. Platelets help blood clot, something that is crucial for healing your facial tissues. Because of this, adding PRP to your microneedling treatment can considerably enhance healing and results after your procedure.
The Optimal Microneedling Treatment Plan
Dr. Jason Cooper and his team offer an excellent treatment plan for those looking to harness the advantages of microneedling. Dr. Cooper suggests that in order to capture the full benefits of microneedling, clients should have 3 to 4 treatments, one month apart.
