Microneedling with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Course Overview
In our one-day Microneedling with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Course, you’ll learn how to use one of today’s most highly requested treatments, microneedling, along with the very latest in anti-aging treatments, Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP). This course is taught by top medical aesthetics professionals, each with in-depth microneedling and PRP experience.
Our Microneedling with PRP training course is ideal for MDs, nurses, PAs and other health care professionals wanting to add medical aesthetics to their practices, and particularly for those wanting to offer in-demand, cutting edge cosmetic treatments to their patients.
Why Microneedling with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Training?
Numerous studies have shown that one of the best ways to improve skin’s tone and texture is by stimulating the body’s own healing process. Microneedling improves skin’s firmness while reducing the appearance of fine lines and acne scars, all with minimal downtime. PRP has a long history of use in sports and orthopedic medicine as well as dentistry and reconstructive surgery. We’re now seeing that it can also significantly benefit cosmetic facial rejuvenation, dermatology and skin wound healing.
How Does Microneedling with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) work?
With Microneedling, a minimally invasive pen-shaped device studded with several very fine needles is passed over the treatment area(s). The needles break down old tissue, causing deliberate, minor injury to the skin’s surface, thereby stimulating a healing response. Over time, new collagen is produced and the result is younger, healthier, more beautiful looking skin. Microneedling also creates tiny channels in which topically applied nutrients can be absorbed at a much higher level. In fact, within the hour after treatment, they can be absorbed at a 3,000 percent higher rate. When combined with PRP, the results are astounding.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) occurs naturally in our bodies. For a PRP treatment, a small amount of blood is drawn from the client and placed in a sterile tube, then spun in a centrifuge to separate red and white cells from platelets and plasma (clear fluid). This plasma now has a higher than normal number of platelets, thus making it platelet-rich plasma. When applied to the skin, PRP grows new collagen and newer studies show that it can also soften sun damage while smoothing and tightening skin. It is an effective treatment in correcting common age-related skin concerns such as dark circles under the eyes, fine lines, sagging, decreased firmness and uneven tone.
What Can Clients Expect from a Microneedling with Platelet-Rich Plamsa (PRP) Treatment?
Considered a non-ablative treatment, microneedling treats deeper levels of the skin without removing the top layer. Side effects experienced with microneedling typically subside in 24-48 hours and include swelling, stinging, itching, and tightness of the skin. A few days after treatment, skin is noticeably smoother and more radiant, and fully appreciable results typically occur a few months later. Side effects of PRP therapy are minimal, as the client’s own blood is being used but proper precautions should always be taken when drawing blood, and only performed by a licensed medical professional.

Medical Professional Testimonials
The Botox and fillers class offered a lot of hands-on experience. I gained a great deal of confidence in my ability to perform treatments, especially since the instructors are right there to guide and encourage you.

Absolutely loved my experience. I learned so much and am excited about this journey of doing Botox and fillers. I am definitely planning on taking more classes. I would recommend your classes to anyone inquiring about aesthetics! Thank you so much!
– Mary Beth Medina, MSN FNP-C
National Laser Institute took me from a RN with 0 experience or knowledge in medical spa knowledge to a RN that feels confident performing services to the community in my hometown in Northern Canada. There is little opportunity here to experience these services, and I’m so happy I can bring my knowledge and treatments here. Thank you, National Laser Institute!
