Rejuvenate Your Skin with PRP Treatments at Advanced Dermatology of North Central Ohio
Why Everyone Is Talking About Platelet Rich Plasma Treatments
Millions of Americans struggle with skin conditions that can’t be managed with an at-home skincare routine alone. Modern cosmetic dermatology has developed cutting-edge solutions, such as platelet-rich plasma treatments, that can help you to improve your skin texture and complexion.
At Advanced Dermatology of North Central Ohio, we’re proud to offer PRP injections and PRP microneedling to help you regain your confidence. These revolutionary treatments harness the healing power of your own body to address a wide variety of skin concerns. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is one of the latest cosmetic procedures on the market today.
How PRP Treatments Work
Get a better understanding of microneedling by reading our FAQs section. Our board-certified dermatologists answer common questions, such as how microneedling benefits the skin, what you can expect during a session, and the type of skin conditions we treat with microneedling in Mansfield, Ohio.
PRP injections are an innovative and organic way to use your body’s plasma to stimulate natural healing, cellular growth, and skin rejuvenation. We start by drawing a small sample of your blood. We place the sample in a machine that spins the blood, rapidly separating the platelets, which contain vital growth factors and stem cells that kickstart skin’s healing and renewal.
We then inject this highly concentrated, platelet-rich blood back into key areas of the face or body to treat:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Dark circles and under-eye bags
- Acne scars
- Crepey skin
- Laugh lines, smoker’s lines, and marionette lines
Microneedling is a procedure that uses extremely fine needles to gently puncture the outer layer of the skin. Though you may only feel a slight pricking sensation, your skin registers these pinpricks as damage and begins producing collagen to heal. That collagen helps improve skin texture, fill out fine lines and wrinkles, correct hyperpigmentation (sun damage, age spots), and reduce the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks.
When we add PRP to microneedling, we enhance the procedure’s effectiveness. The microneedling procedure opens your pores to the rejuvenating effects of PRP, taking the procedure’s results to the next level.
Our microneedling treatments in Mansfield are generally not painful. While you may experience some mild discomfort, your provider will administer a numbing cream before the procedure, which alleviates any unpleasantness.
Microneedling is an effective cosmetic treatment with several skin benefits. These benefits include:
- Smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines
- Improving the appearance of acne scars
- Addressing skin discoloration, like dark spots, sunspots, and age spots
- Minimizing enlarged pores
- Reducing the visibility of scars and stretch marks
- Improving skin laxity
- Brightening dull, lackluster skin

One of the ideal benefits of PRP microneedling is that it can address and improve skin laxity for tighter, firmer skin. If you have skin laxity issues, contact us to learn more about how PRP microneedling can tighten your skin and benefit your complexion.
The frequency of treatment depends on your specific cosmetic and aesthetic goals. In many cases, your provider may recommend several microneedling sessions spaced out over a period of time to achieve optimal results.

PRP For Hair Loss & Under Eye Circles
One of the most exciting things about PRP procedures is how incredibly versatile they are and able to target concerns that other treatments can’t.
The same rejuvenating plasma that helps stimulate collagen production to fight signs of aging can also trigger natural hair growth in areas that are thinning. By increasing the supply of blood to hair follicles, PRP treatments help boost the thickness and health of hair shafts. That means easy-to-maintain natural hair with no need for surgeries, transplants, or other painful procedures.
PRP injections are also a safe and effective alternative to fillers for dark under-eye circles and bags. Because the platelets and growth factors in the treatment encourage collagen and blood vessel production, this treatment produces a healthier, more supple skin structure in the under-eye area.
Who Is A Good Candidate For PRP Treatments
One of the most exciting things about PRP procedures is how incredibly versatile they are, able to target concerns that other treatments can’t.
Otherwise healthy adults who have visible signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone are great candidates for this procedure.
If you are breastfeeding, pregnant, have certain bleeding or blood disorders, or are taking NSAIDs or corticosteroid injections, these procedures may not be the best choice for you. The nicotine present in cigarettes can also lower your platelet count and increase your blood pressure. For this and many other health reasons, we advise all patients to quit smoking.
Because PRP treatments involve drawing blood, make sure you choose a trained and certified professional. While you may be tempted to consider a medspa or salon to provide PRP treatments, it’s best to trust the board-certified dermatologists at Advanced Dermatology of North Central Ohio!
