What Else is Microneedling Used For?

Microneedling with PRP | SKIN Medical Spa | San Francisco CAMicroneedling— especially with platelet-rich plasma— is one of the most popular things that we offer at SKIN Medical Spa— which is why we’ve mentioned it several times on this blog. As a way to encourage the growth of new skin cells and collagen, microneedling is fairly fast, easy, and very effective. But did you know that other than helping you get a more youthful glow that microneedling can be used for other things as well?

Stretch Marks

Whether you’ve recently lost a lot of weight or you’ve been pregnant, then you know just how much of a toll that type of extreme weight loss can have on your skin— leaving you with stretch marks galore. And although many stretchmarks do fade on their own over time, who really has time to wait? One of the unique benefits of microneedling is that it can be used on the stomach, thighs, and arms to help patients reduce the appearance of stretch marks.


Depending on the type of scarring you suffer from, microneedling may be able to help reduce their appearance. Plus because (as previously mentioned) it can be done all across the body, if you have scars on your face, neck, or body, we can use microneedling to help make them less noticeable. After several treatments, many of our patients see great results.

Pore Size

Having large pores isn’t something anyone wants to add to their resume, but it’s unfortunately, something that a lot of people have to deal with. Another unique thing that microneedling can help with is reducing pore size so that they are smaller and just less noticeable overall.

Microneedling either by itself or with PRP can help patients treat a variety of different skin care concerns.
