About Microneedling with PRP
Bensimon Center offers Microneedling, a procedure that punctures tiny holes into the skin on your face, neck, or chest to stimulate skin repair. As an added benefit, your own platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can be applied to the same area to further aid in healing and tissue rejuvenation. These two treatments together are often referred to as the vampire facial and can reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles, scars, dark spots, large pores, and other skin issues. The texture of your skin can be greatly improved to appear smoother and more even without damaging the skin. If you would like to learn more about the Microneedling with PRP treatment, schedule a one-on-one consultation with plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Bensimon at his office in Portland, OR.

A great candidate for microneedling with PRP would be anyone looking to change the appearance or texture of the surface of their face. Dry skin, uneven skin tone, rough texture, age spots, loose skin, wrinkles, acne, and scarring are all skin conditions that could benefit from a microneedling with PRP treatment. This treatment can also be used to help combat the effects of sun damage that may have caused your skin to have a rough texture or hyperpigmentation.
Prior to the Microneedling section 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 stem cells, platelets, and growth factors will be condensed into PRP. For the Microneedling treatment, Bensimon Center uses state-of-the-art technology to create tiny holes in your skin. The small needles used will not damage your skin but will instead help stimulate the production of collagen. Once the Microneedling is complete, the PRP serum will be applied to the skin to sink in. After the PRP is fully absorbed, we will remove the serum and cleanse your skin.
What to Expect
Following your microneedling with PRP treatment, you may experience some normal effects, such as bruising, swelling, and redness. We recommend that you do not wear makeup, use abrasive skin cleansers, or submerge in a swimming pool for approximately 72 hours post-treatment. These activities can expose your skin to harsh chemicals and bacteria, which could lead to adverse reactions. You should also reduce sun exposure or use protective measures when going outside. Final results are typically seen within several weeks as the skin works to repair and heal itself.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does microneedling with PRP cost?
Microneedling with PRP treatments will be priced according to the size of the area(s) being treated. After your initial consultation with Dr. Bensimon and his Master Aesthetician to develop your treatment plan based on your needs and concerns, costs can be discussed. Bensimon Center often offers discounts on packages of several treatments, like microneedling with PRP, as well as treatment specials. You can ask about these and payment methods we accept when you are scheduling your consultation.
How effective are microneedling with PRP treatments?
The results from microneedling with PRP treatments 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. To get your best results, you may need to get several treatments initially and then maintenance sessions. Dr. Bensimon will go over realistic expectations during your consultation so you know what to expect after your treatment.
How many microneedling with PRP treatments should I get?
Initially, you may want to get a series of treatments scheduled every few weeks. Depending on the starting condition of your skin and your specific concerns, Dr. Bensimon will create a microneedling with PRP treatment plan that restores the health of your complexion. In between microneedling with PRP treatments, you may want to schedule a facial or another skin treatment to remove dead skin layers and nourish the new growth.
How often should I get microneedling with PRP treatments?
After an initial series of treatments, you may want to schedule maintenance microneedling with PRP sessions 2 – 4 times per year. This will vary based on the health of your skin and goals so Dr. Bensimon will help you develop your unique microneedling with PRP treatment plan. He will be able to recommend how often you should get treatments so your complexion remains fresh.
Should I get microneedling with PRP or injectable wrinkle treatments?
While microneedling with PRP will provide long-term rejuvenation and strengthen the treated skin, injectable wrinkle treatments provide more immediate results. Depending on your goals, you may prefer microneedling with PRP alone or you may want to combine it with an injectable wrinkle treatment, like BOTOX, Juvéderm, or Restylane. During your consultation with Dr. Bensimon, he will build your custom treatment plan to match all your needs and goals.
