microneedling & PRP services
SkinPen & ProGen
Accesa Health’s microneedling & PRP treatment helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars and damaged skin, minimize pores, fade stretch marks, and improve the overall appearance of skin.
By activating the body’s natural healing process, we’re able to provide long-term results that improve over time, and leave you with smooth, healthy, and visibly revitalized skin.
Our high-quality results are accomplished by our use of industry-leading devices: the SkinPen Precision Microneedling device and the ProGen Platelet Rich Plasma System.
SkinPen is the first FDA-cleared microneedling device proven to be safe and effective in fighting the appearance of neck wrinkles and reducing the appearance of acne scars. This quick-and-easy treatment delivers impressive results that last up to six months. SkinPen doesn’t rely on heat or chemicals, so the results are natural and safe for all skin tones and types. Unlike lasers or chemical peels that can damage skin over the long term, SkinPen treatments, when properly spaced and overseen by a physician, can be used for years.
Benefits of Microneedling
- Improving Skin Texture: Microneedling can help smooth out rough skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Reducing Scars: It’s often used to minimize the appearance of acne scars, surgical scars, and stretch marks.
- Hyperpigmentation: Microneedling can help fade dark spots and pigmentation irregularities by encouraging the production of collagen and elastin, which can improve overall skin tone.
- Tightening Loose Skin: The stimulation of collagen and elastin production can lead to firmer and tighter skin, making it useful for addressing mild sagging.
- Reducing Pore Size: Microneedling may help minimize the size of enlarged pores.
- Treating Skin Conditions: Some people use microneedling to address conditions like rosacea or alopecia (hair loss) when combined with other treatments.
- Enhancing Product Absorption: The microchannels created by microneedling can increase the absorption of topical skincare products, making them more effective.
- Overall Skin Rejuvenation: Microneedling can promote healthier, more youthful-looking skin by stimulating natural collagen and elastin production.
ProGen Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP is a platelet concentrated component from your own blood that contains nutrient rich cells and protein growth factors. When applied topically into the face, it promotes collagen production, improves skin texture, and reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, and sun-damaged skin.
PRP is produced when a small amount of blood is drawn and placed into a sterile, disposable container and then, spun to separate the platelets from your blood sample, resulting in a platelet-rich plasma. We use the ProGen PRP System which is considered the gold standard in PRP therapy.
Benefits of Combining Microneedling & PRP
PRP is often used in combination with microneedling for several reasons, as the two treatments can complement each other to enhance skin rejuvenation and improve specific skin concerns.
- Enhanced Healing & Collagen Production: PRP delivers a concentrated source of growth factors and platelets directly to the treatment area. These growth factors can further stimulate collagen and elastin production, promoting faster and more robust tissue regeneration.
- Improved Skin Texture: The micro-injuries from microneedling allow PRP to penetrate deeper into the skin, increasing its effectiveness in addressing fine lines, wrinkles, and texture irregularities.
- Reduction of Scarring: For individuals with scars from acne, injuries, or surgery, the combination of PRP and microneedling can help soften the appearance of scars by encouraging collagen remodeling and tissue regeneration.
- Hyperpigmentation & Skin Tone: PRP can contribute to an even skin tone by helping to reduce the appearance of dark spots and pigmentation irregularities.
- Faster Recovery: PRP can aid in the healing process by reducing redness and inflammation and potentially accelerating the recovery time.

Frequently Asked Questions
Results are produced over a 3-Step Process:
- Inflammation: SkinPen’s microneedles pierce the skin to create micro-channels (microscopic holes) at a rate of 1600 per second, triggering your immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow, and begin to create new tissue.
- Proliferation: The micro-wounds stimulate your skin, kicking its healing process into high gear, and are rebuilt with new granulation cells that include collagen proteins. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.
- Remodeling: The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels which are comprised of rich collagen and elastin proteins. These proteins improve skin youthfulness.
Treatment typically takes 30 minutes to complete, but may vary based on your specific needs.
- Your face is cleansed and gently massaged.
- A topical anesthesia may be applied to keep you comfortable.
- Once your skin is ready, lift hydrogel is applied to your treatment area.
- SkinPen creates millions of controlled microchannels to target natural collagen and promote your body’s natural healing process.
After your treatment you may notice some redness or inflammation, which is totally normal and should subside within 24 hours to 72 hours. Your provider will determine your personal treatment schedule based on your unique needs. Most patients see skin improvement in the first month after their first treatment! In clinical trials, skin has been shown to improve for up to six months after a SkinPen treatment.
Patients who have active skin cancer in the treatment area(s); open wounds, sores, or irritated skin in the treatment area(s); an allergy to stainless steel or anesthetics; a hemorrhagic (bleeding) disorder or hemostatic (bleeding) dysfunction; are pregnant or nursing.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy involves the following steps:
- Blood Collection: A small amount of the patient’s blood is drawn, typically from the arm.
- Centrifugation: The collected blood is placed in a centrifuge, which spins at high speeds to separate its components. This process separates the platelet-rich plasma from the rest of the blood components.
- Preparation of PRP: The concentrated platelet-rich plasma is then prepared.
- Applied topically to skin: The PRP is applied topically into the treatment area to promote tissue healing and regeneration.
