Microneedling in Birmingham is one of the most exciting developments in skin regeneration. The micro-injuries created with the needling process, in conjunction with the growth factors in PRP, take microneedling to the next level, stimulating your skin to regenerate from within, becoming softer, firmer, and healthier as the days pass.

Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves using a device containing fine needles to create controlled micro-injuries on the skin's surface. These micro-injuries stimulate the skin's natural healing process, triggering the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential for maintaining skin firmness and elasticity.

The procedure is typically performed by a trained skincare professional and can target various skin concerns, including:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Uneven skin texture


Collagen is the latticework that supports the skin. As you age, the collagen fibers weaken and stretch, resulting in lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. PRP is “platelet-rich plasma,” a concentrated healing serum created from a sample of your blood loaded with “growth factors,” a set of specialized proteins in the body that turn various functions on and off.

When applied to the skin after microneedling with SkinPen®, the PRP speeds cell renewal and blood circulation while stimulating natural collagen and elastin production. PRP with microneedling triggers natural regeneration, leaving you with firmer, healthier, glowing skin. This incredible pairing is referred to as our Twilight Facial and is perfect for anyone looking to renew their facial appearance completely.


SkinPen® is an FDA-approved microneedling tool that makes it easier than ever to refresh your skin. The device generates microchannels (tiny openings) at 1600 per second. These micro-injuries prompt your skin to activate its healing mechanism at an accelerated pace. Moreover, SkinPen® does not depend on heat or chemicals, ensuring the outcomes are natural and suitable for all skin tones and types.

Here are some of the reasons why you should choose SkinPen® for microneedling:

  • It rejuvenates from the inside out for younger-looking skin
  • It is the first FDA-cleared microneedling device
  • It’s been proven safe and effective, delivering results that last up to six months
  • The quick-and-easy treatment features little to no downtime
  • SkinPen® is proven to improve the appearance of acne scars and wrinkles on the neck

The PRP is derived from your blood, so this procedure has virtually no risk. Any person who wants firmer, healthier, more supple skin is likely a good candidate for PRP microneedling, with a few rare exceptions.

Candidates for SkinPen® microneedling with PRP may include:

  • Those seeking to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Individuals looking to address acne scars and hyperpigmentation
  • Those desiring overall skin rejuvenation and improved skin texture
  • Individuals with dull or uneven skin tone
  • Those aiming to promote collagen production and achieve a more youthful complexion


The SkinPen® procedure operates through three straightforward steps, strategically crafted to stimulate the skin's innate healing mechanism. After each session, the skin begins healing, gradually becoming more revitalized and refreshed. SkinPen® is exclusively administered in professional environments and achieves impressive outcomes without using heat or chemicals.


SkinPen®’s needles penetrate the skin's surface, prompting a natural immune response to cleanse, eliminate debris, enhance blood circulation, and stimulate the generation of new tissue.


The small openings or micro-channels formed by SkinPen® are regenerated with fresh granulation cells containing collagen proteins. Furthermore, a new network of blood vessels is established.


Fresh dermal tissues develop, rich in collagen and elastin proteins. These proteins enhance skin texture, visibly diminishing facial acne scars and neck wrinkles, resulting in smoother, more radiant, youthful-looking skin.

How is PRP with Microneedling Performed?

A topical anesthetic cream will be applied to the area to be treated. Three passes over the area to be firmed with the Rejuvepen. Rejuvepen creates micro-injuries, very tiny wounds in the skin to stimulate healing and regeneration, called “collagen induction therapy.” Once the Rejuvepen needling treatment is complete, the PRP is applied to the skin, so it can enter the skin structure, triggering natural healing, and the regeneration of new collagen and elastin.

• Procedure time: Two hours
• Anesthesia: Topical numbing cream
• Recovery time: One day
• Can be combined with other treatments


After undergoing SkinPen® microneedling with PRP, expect a relatively short recovery period:

  • Immediately following the procedure, it is typical for the treated area to appear slightly red and feel akin to a mild sunburn
  • This redness and sensation typically subside within a day or two
  • Additionally, some individuals may experience minor swelling, pinpoint bleeding, or bruising, which should resolve within a few days

Here are some of our tips for the recovery phase from SkinPen microneedling with PRP:

  • Apply a soothing moisturizer or recommended post-treatment product to aid in skin recovery
  • Avoid direct sun exposure and use sun protection, such as sunscreen and protective clothing
  • Refrain from using harsh skincare products and exfoliants or undergoing additional cosmetic treatments on the treated area for a specified period
  • Gently cleanse the treated area as per our instructions
  • Avoid picking or scratching the treated area to prevent potential complications and promote proper healing

How long will the procedure take to complete?

The numbing requires about 45 to 60 minutes, followed by microneedling which requires about another 30 to 45 minutes. The PRP is then massaged into your face where it is left for a six hours.

Is microneedling with PRP better than BOTOX?

BOTOX halts the muscles that create dynamic wrinkles (caused by expressions). PRP with microneedling works to strengthen your skin from within. Each has its own purpose, and the condition of your skin makes a difference in whether you will see better results with one or the other, or both.

How many treatments will I need?

The best results are achieved with three sessions spaced four weeks apart.
