Microneedling with PRF
Imagine a technique that makes your skin tighter, smoother, and cleaner by actually damaging the skin. Sounds pretty contradictory, right? Now imagine that same technique, but by using elements found in your own body, to create not only better, but faster results. Microneedling with PRF does just that and that’s one of the reasons why it is rapidly becoming an extremely popular and beneficial treatment.
With two convenient Bucks County locations, Pure by Alpha Dermatology strives to provide the best Microneedling with PRF treatments to our patients in both New Hope and Sellersville, PA. If you are looking for enhanced tone and texture for your skin but would like to learn more about what this treatment can do for you, please read below for more information.
What Is Microneedling with PRF
Microneedling with PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin) is a minimally invasive treatment that uses a device with hundreds of ultra-fine needles that create micro-punctures in your skin in tandem with PRF from your blood to help stimulate the healing process. The results from this treatment mean a faster healing process with glowing, even, and youthful skin. The PRF helps speed up the healing process by nourishing the cells and delivering stellar results.
The primary difference between PRF and PRP is that PRF is spun at a lower speed in the centrifuge which protects your blood and keeps the protective aspects, such as white blood cells and stem cells, which encourage faster healing. PRF is a fibrin matrix comprised of platelet cytokines, growth factors, and stem cells used to help promote skin rejuvenation, hair growth, and wound healing. PRF is an excellent option for a natural procedure to stimulate collagen or regrow thinning hair that uses no manmade products.
This treatment is frequently used to address the following facial skin problems:
- Acne scars
- Hair loss
- Visible pores
- Wrinkles and fine lines

What’s the first step?
The first step in getting Microneedling with PRF in New Hope and Sellersville, PA is to contact Pure by Alpha Dermatology and schedule your consultation with one of our certified Providers. When you come in for your appointment, you will show them the area you are looking to treat and ask any questions you may have regarding the treatment. They will evaluate your skin and ask you about your medical history. When you are discussing your medical background, please be honest and open with your Provider. We are completely discreet and the information you provide will help them make the best and safest decision for you. Our goal is to prevent any unnecessary risks during or after your procedure.
The Provider will take the information they collected and use it to create a procedure plan that has been customized for your needs. If you agree with this plan, you will be able to have your first session performed, however, if you need more time, you will speak with our Patient Coordinator who will help you reschedule for another date and time.
What to Expect on the Day of Microneedling with PRF
When it’s time for your Microneedling with PRF treatment, you will begin by getting comfortable in your reclining chair and a numbing cream is provided to make your experience a little better. A small amount of your blood is drawn and placed into a centrifuge (a machine that spins around) at a low speed to separate the PRF from other blood components. Then, the PRF is carefully extracted from the top of the vial using a syringe. This supra-concentration of blood (C-PRF) is then applied to your face and the handheld microneedling device is used to penetrate the skin, pushing the C-PRF into the cells and deeper layers of skin. The combination of these two effects helps promote the regeneration process. Once finished, the Aesthetician will clean off your face and apply a soothing ointment.
Each session will last about 30 minutes.
Microneedling with PRF Recovery
You will be able to return to your daily routine after your treatment, however, your face will be red, similar to a mild sunburn, for the next 24 – 48 hours. We do, however, recommend taking the rest of the day to relax in peace. Your skin should feel immediately tighter after the procedure and will continue to improve over the next three days. Some patients can completely heal within 24 hours after therapy, depending on their skin color and condition, and with a proper post-treatment skin care regimen.
While the average cost of Microneedling with PRF in New Hope and Sellersville is about $650, but this number can vary depending on multiple factors. When you come in for your consultation and the Aesthetician can create your treatment plan, our Patient Coordinator will be able to provide you with a complete price breakdown of your treatment.

Microneedling with PRF FAQs
Your procedure questions answered.
Awesome office staff and Carly, Drew and Dr Shrager are phenomenal! Highly recommend. My appointment this time was with Carly and I couldn’t be happier. Very professional, knowledgeable and you can tell she really knows what she’s doing. Alpha Derm is the best!
The results were amazing. I strongly believe that a good filler job means you can’t spot a filler job and she nailed it. I look like me, but more refreshed and younger!
Love the place! The team is wonderful, skilled and very calming. Dr. Shrager is my favorite! Oh, and the renovation looks amazing!
