What is Microneedling with PRP?
The Kaplan Center for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery is proud to offer microneedling, a treatment that punctures small holes into the skin on your neck, face, or chest to stimulate skin restoration. As an added benefit, your platelet-rich plasma (PRP) may be administered to the same region to help cells heal and allow the skin to grow new cells. Both of these procedures together can often lessen the appearance of scars, fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, and other skin conditions. The texture of your skin may be significantly enhanced to look smoother and more even in tone without damaging the epidermis. If you'd like to learn more about microneedling with PRP, schedule a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Gordon Kaplan at his office in Edgewater, NJ.
"Dr. Kaplan changed my life. He is a doctor who cares and is compassionate! He is not only a MD he is an artist. He had done liposuction to my abdomen, back and flanks. He is great, the staff is super friendly and accommodating- I would give 10 stars if I could! This was new to me and everyone was so helpful! I also had my lips plumped by Nurse Christina- great work - doctor Kaplan and staff are the best!"- M.B. / Google / Jul 30, 2021
"Dr Kaplan and his staff are amazing! I travel an hour and a half from south Jersey to see him and it is well worth the drive! They are friendly, helpful, and always make me feel comfortable and I walk out feeling better than when I arrived. Dr Kaplan is more than a Dr. He is an artist and he takes his time to make sure every detail and angle and the overall look of my face is improved with the injectable procedures I have had including facial and nasolabial enhancements. I am planning to move out of state soon and will definitely plan to travel even further to see him again if needed in the future!"- L.S. / Google / Jul 23, 2021

Am I a Candidate for Microneedling with PRP?
A perfect candidate for microneedling with PRP would be any individual seeking to alter the appearance or feel of the top layer of their skin. Uneven skin tone, dry skin, harsh texture, age spots, loose skin, acne, wrinkles, and scarring are skin conditions that could benefit from microneedling with PRP therapy. This procedure can also be used to fight the effects of sun damage that might have caused the skin to have a rough texture or hyperpigmentation.
How is Microneedling with PRP Performed?
Before the microneedling portion of your session, a member of our medical team will take a sample of your blood for the PRP collection. This blood will then be transferred to our lab for the separation process where your regenerative cells, platelets, and growth factors will be made into PRP. For your microneedling therapy, The Kaplan Center for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery utilizes innovative technology to create tiny holes in your skin. The needles used will not damage your skin but will instead help stimulate the creation of collagen. Once the microneedling is complete, the PRP serum will be put on the skin to sink in. After the PRP is fully absorbed, we'll clear away the serum and cleanse the skin.
What Results Can I Expect from Microneedling with PRP?
After your microneedling with PRP therapy, you could experience some minor side effects, such as swelling, redness, and bruising. Dr. Kaplan recommends that patients avoid the use of makeup and exfoliating face washes, as well as swimming in chlorinated pools, for approximately 72 hours post-treatment. These activities could expose your treatment area to strong bacteria and chemicals, which could lead to adverse reactions. You should also reduce exposure to the sun or use protective steps when going outside. Final results are generally seen within the first month as the skin works to repair and heal itself.
