At Enhanced, we combine PRP with SkinPen® Microneedling. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, in combination with SkinPen microneedling, represents an advanced non-surgical approach that harnesses the body's innate healing abilities. This innovative procedure begins with a small blood sample, from which the platelets, growth factors, and plasma are concentrated through centrifugation. The resulting PRP is then applied topically and infused into the skin using the precise micro-needling technique of SkinPen.


This dynamic combination facilitates optimal absorption and distribution of PRP's potent rejuvenating properties. The treatment stimulates cell renewal, collagen synthesis, and tissue rejuvenation, leading to profound improvements in skin texture, tone, and elasticity. Moreover, this dual approach has shown remarkable efficacy in addressing concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and even hair loss, making it an exceptional choice for those seeking comprehensive and natural aesthetic enhancements.

Areas of treatment

  • Face:  This is the most popular treatment area for PRP and microneedling. It addresses concerns like fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and uneven skin texture.

  • Neck:  PRP and microneedling can be used to improve skin tone and texture on the neck, addressing issues like sagging skin and fine lines.

  • Décolletage (Chest):  This treatment area can help rejuvenate the skin, reducing signs of aging and sun damage.

  • Scalp:  PRP and microneedling are effective in stimulating hair growth and improving the overall health of the scalp. It's a popular treatment for individuals experiencing hair thinning or loss.

  • Hands:  This treatment is used to rejuvenate the skin on the hands, addressing issues like age spots, wrinkles, and loss of volume.

  • Acne Scarring:  PRP and microneedling can help improve the appearance of acne scars by stimulating collagen production and promoting tissue repair.

  • Stretch Marks: This treatment combination can be used to reduce the appearance of stretch marks by stimulating collagen production and improving skin texture.

Platelet-rich plasma or PRP is a highly sought-after non-surgical procedure for facial and skin rejuvenation. PRP therapy uses your own blood platelets to stimulate new cell growth, helping to improve your complexion, and skin texture and to restore lost facial volume. Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) therapy combined with microneedling, such as with SkinPen, is a versatile treatment that can be applied to various areas of the body. 


The cost for PRP with SkinPen microneedling is €300.


Some clients may need additional products; your individual requirements will be discussed at the time of your consultation.

PRP with microneedling is generally considered a safe procedure when performed by a trained and qualified healthcare provider.  However, like any medical treatment, there can be potential side effects. Here's an overview:


  1. Autologous: PRP is derived from the patient's own blood, reducing the risk of allergic reactions or adverse events related to foreign substances.

  2. Minimally Invasive: Both PRP and microneedling are minimally invasive procedures, which means they typically involve fewer risks compared to surgical interventions.

  3. Low Risk of Infection: Proper sterilization and hygiene practices minimize the risk of infection during the procedure.

Common Side Effects:

  1. Redness and Swelling:  Mild redness and swelling at the treatment site are common and usually temporary. They typically subside within a few hours to a few days.

  2. Bruising:  Some individuals may experience mild bruising, particularly in areas with thinner skin.

  3. Sensitivity:  The treated area may be sensitive for a short period after the procedure.

  4. Minimal Discomfort: Clients may experience minor discomfort during the procedure, but this is typically well-tolerated.

Rare Side Effects:

  1. Infection:  While rare, there is a small risk of infection at the treatment site. Proper sterile techniques can minimise this risk.

  2. Allergic Reaction:  It's extremely rare for patients to have an allergic reaction to their own PRP, but it's still a possibility.

  3. Hyperpigmentation or Hypopigmentation:  Changes in skin colour are possible but very uncommon.

  4. Scarring: In rare cases, improper technique or complications can lead to scarring.

It's important for clients to choose a qualified and experienced healthcare provider and to follow any post-treatment instructions provided.  Additionally, clients should inform the clinic of any allergies or medical conditions prior to the procedure.

Nurse Natalie


It is important to remember that each client and treatment is completely unique.  Your exact requirements and results will be discussed in detail with

Natalie.  The whole process from start to finish usually takes approximately 60-90 minutes and downtime is minimal - typically a day or two.  

  1. Consultation:  The process begins with a consultation with Natalie. During this consultation, Natalie will assess your skin condition, discuss your concerns, and determine if PRP with microneedling is a suitable treatment.

  2. Preparation:  Before the procedure, the client's blood is drawn, usually from the arm. The blood sample is then placed in a centrifuge to separate the platelets and plasma from the red blood cells.

  3. Topical Anaesthesia (Optional):  Some providers may apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area to minimize discomfort during the procedure.

  4. Microneedling: The provider uses a specialized microneedling device, like SkinPen, to create tiny, controlled micro-injuries on the skin's surface. This process stimulates the body's natural healing response and prepares the skin for PRP application.

  5. PRP Application: The concentrated PRP, derived from the patient's own blood, is applied topically to the treated area or infused into the skin using the microneedling device. The microchannels created by the microneedling allow for optimal absorption of the PRP.

  6. Post-Treatment Care: The provider may apply a soothing serum or cream to the skin after the procedure. Patients are typically given specific post-treatment instructions, including avoiding sun exposure, wearing sunscreen, and avoiding certain skincare products.

  7. Recovery: Patients may experience mild redness, swelling, and sensitivity in the treated area, which usually subside within a few hours to a few days.

  8. Follow-Up: Depending on the specific treatment plan, patients may be scheduled for follow-up appointments to monitor progress and determine if additional sessions are needed.

Following post-care instructions is crucial for achieving optimum results.


Following a PRP with microneedling treatment, it's important to adhere to specific post-treatment advice to promote optimal healing and results. Here are some common post-treatment guidelines and an overview of the recovery process:

Post-Treatment Advice:

  1. Avoid Sun Exposure:  Protect the treated area from direct sunlight and UV radiation. If sun exposure is unavoidable, use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF.

  2. Gentle Cleansing:  Cleanse the treated area with a gentle, non-abrasive cleanser to keep it free from dirt and bacteria. Avoid harsh or abrasive products.

  3. Avoid Harsh Chemicals:  Refrain from using products containing harsh chemicals, strong acids, or active ingredients that may irritate the skin.

  4. Hydration:  Keep the skin well-hydrated by applying a gentle, hydrating moisturizer. This helps maintain skin health and promotes healing.

  5. Minimal Makeup:  If possible, avoid applying makeup to the treated area immediately after the procedure to allow the skin to breathe and heal.

  6. No Touching or Picking:  Resist the urge to touch or pick at the treated area. This can disrupt the healing process and lead to complications.

  7. Avoid Hot Showers or Saunas:  Steer clear of hot showers, steam rooms, saunas, or any activity that may cause excessive sweating for the first 24-48 hours.

Recovery Time:

  1. Immediate Post-Procedure:  Clients may experience mild redness, swelling, and sensitivity in the treated area. These effects typically subside within a few hours to a few days.

  2. Longer-Term Recovery:  The skin's collagen production and rejuvenation process continues over the following weeks and months, leading to gradual improvements in skin texture and tone.

  3. Optimal Results:  Clients may start to notice significant improvements in skin appearance and texture within a few weeks to a couple of months after the procedure.  Results may continue to improve over time.

Remember, individual recovery experiences can vary, and it's crucial to consult with the clinic for personalised post-treatment advice and recommendations. Following these guidelines can help ensure the best possible outcome from your PRP with microneedling treatment.


Q.What is PRP?

A. Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a cutting-edge non-surgical procedure that harnesses the healing power of a patient's own blood. During a PRP treatment, a small amount of blood is drawn, and then spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelets, growth factors, and plasma from the red blood cells. This concentrated mixture, known as PRP, is then injected back into the patient's skin or scalp, depending on the treatment area. 


PRP is renowned for its ability to stimulate cell regeneration, collagen production, and tissue repair. This leads to improvements in skin texture, tone, and elasticity, making it a highly sought-after treatment for facial and skin rejuvenation. Moreover, PRP therapy has shown promising results in addressing hair loss, making it a versatile and powerful option for those seeking natural and effective aesthetic enhancements.
