8How often should you do microneedling with PRP?
Patients often ask, “How often should you do PRP microneedling?” In general, the answer is no more than once every four to six weeks. Following each microneedling procedure, your skin needs time to heal. Not allowing it to heal can lead to irritation and may even impede your results.
However, some patients may be able to do the therapy every two weeks in the beginning, but this is not common.
Patients may be able to achieve results and maintain their skin with just one or two PRP microneedling sessions a year after the initial round of therapies, usually four to six sessions. Of course, this will all depend on your skin and other factors, such as the damage you get from treatments. During your consultations and treatments, your master esthetician will discuss this more with you.
