A buildup of dry and dead skin, a discolored appearance, and uneven texture can not only make your skin look unappealing and age you, but can also indicate that your skin might not be very healthy at the moment. Even patients who care for their skin consistently may notice it looking “out of shape” due to exposure to dirt, grime, harsh weather, and air pollution. When skin gets to this stage, even the strongest topical products might not make much of a difference. You might need to not only target the blemishes on the surface, but also consider a procedure that addresses root causes of many skin problems: the decline in collagen production due to aging. Microneedling with PRP is something Milwaukee, WI, patients can use to rejuvenate their skin from the inside out and restore it back to health by kickstarting collagen production, skin cell turnover, and the natural healing processes that keep it supple, clear, and smooth.

Even though microneedling with PRP is low-risk, non-surgical, and minimally invasive, skin care experts agree that patients should prepare ahead of time to ensure that they have as great an experience as possible.


  • Keep Your Skin Calm

Exfoliating about a week before microneedling could help to get rid of the dead skin and enhance your results—but try not to overdo anything. Rather than exfoliating too much or using harsh, abrasive products like retinols or acids right before your treatment (because those options increase skin sensitivity), try soothing your skin with gentle, simple alternatives.


  • Avoid Sun Exposure

Since microneedling involves pricking the skin with needles, patients need to take steps to prevent damage to the skin barrier. In the days leading up to your microneedling with PRP treatment, avoid sunbathing, tanning beds, self-tanning products, and retinoids/retinols.


  • Clean Your Skin

Before coming in for your appointment, be sure to cleanse, tone, and dry your skin. Ensure that any makeup, oil, and sunscreen are fully removed.
