What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is aimed at stimulating the body’s own collagen production to tighten, lift, rejuvenate, and restore the skin by creating microchannels into the epidermis to release growth factors that produce scarless healing of the skin. It is also intended to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and minimize pores, stretch marks, and scarring.



  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • Encourage collagen production
  • Calm and soothe irritated skin
  • Reduce scarring

Perhaps you’ve also heard of microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) – popularly known as the “vampire facial.” 

HOW DOES Microneedling with PRP WORK?

In this setting, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is derived from a small sample of your own blood. It contains a high concentration of growth factors that have been used for over 20 years for cellular rejuvenation, healing, and collagen production. A blood draw is performed from the arm region and spun in a centrifuge to isolate the PRP. The PRP separates into a yellow substance that is filled with growth factors. PRP is drawn off and then used topically, during your microneedling treatment, to aid in collagen production and rejuvenation in that given area. 

Your aesthetician will apply a topical anesthetic to your face. They will then pass over it with a microneedling pen. The microneedling pen pricks tiny holes in your skin, stimulating its natural healing processes – and creating channels for the PRP. The tiny breaks in the skin stimulate collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin, which allows for facial rejuvenation by reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles and scars. Your aesthetician will massage the PRP into the treated areas of the skin. This helps the platelets and beneficial growth factors in PRP penetrate deep into your skin so they can work their rejuvenating magic!

Microneedling (with or without PRP) can improve a variety of skin conditions! Even if you’re lucky enough not to have any of these issues, you may want to consider microneedling with PRP to improve your skin’s tone, texture, and overall appearance.

In sum, microneedling with PRP is a powerful treatment for a variety of common skin concerns!


  • Before PRP injections, drink plenty of water! This will aid us in drawing blood and obtaining more plasma.
  • After PRP is applied topically, the client should plan for 1-2 days of healing due to redness and/or irritation.
  • PRP results may vary from client to client.

Microneedling Enahancement Options

You may opt to enhance your microneedling treatment with one of the following:

Microneedling + Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
Microneedling + Laser Genesis
Microneedling + Facial

Your aesthetician will analyze your skin and provide a custom treatment plan to help maximize your results! 

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) can also be injected! LEARN MORE about PRP Injections.

  • How long until I see results from Microneedling?

    Most patients see results after the first treatment. Individual results vary depending on individual skin health. It is most common to begin to see true changes or positive results as soon as 1-2 weeks after the first treatment.

  • Do you peel after Microneedling?

    It is normal for the skin to peel after microneedling treatments as a new layer of skin is produced and the old skin begins peeling off. The peeling will be minimal, similar to a mild sunburn.

  • Does Microneedling hurt?

    There is some discomfort associated with microneedling, but a topical numbing cream can be applied prior to the procedure to minimize discomfort.

  • How is the Microneedling w/ PRP treatment performed?

    1. Clients will undergo a blood draw. The blood draw allows the provider to then extract the platelet-rich plasma from the client's own blood using a centrifuge.
    2. A topical numbing cream will be applied to the designated treatment area.
    3. Once the PRP has been extracted and enough PRP has been harvested, it is then applied throughout the microneedling treatment.

Everyone at Revive is so professional and kind. They are so informative and knowledgeable. I have never felt any pressure to do anything, if anything, they tend to start small and make sure their clients are happy and getting what they want! They are amazing! I cannot say enough great things about them!

– Terri

My first trip to Revive was today and it was everything I had hoped it to be. I had a 90-minute massage. It was absolutely amazing and I am definitely rebooking another with her. So much relief with TMJ and muscle tension. After the massage, I had my skin consultation with Kisha and continued to be amazed by the level of professionalism and knowledge, as well as the friendly and genuine service. I have booked again next week for my first Dysport session. All my friends and coworkers have asked for the outcome of my spa visit and it's definitely a 2 THUMBS UP! Thank you for a great experience from the check-in staff all the way to the end of my sessions. The facility is beautiful as well!

I have tried a few places since moving to the Quad Cities from Chicago and finally found this gem. They did an awesome job with my Dysport injections and really listened to what I was asking them to do. They far surpassed my expectations and the place is clean as a freaking whistle! My mother was in town visiting from Atlanta and they did hers as well. She was also beyond pleased with the results and facility overall. Highly recommended, and I'll definitely be back for more soon. Thank you, Revive!

When I step into your spa it feels like a mini vacation! From the attention to detail when checking in, the beautiful space to relax in prior to the appointment, and the incredibly comfortable atmosphere for the facial. I love every moment.

I love the privacy of the relaxation area so we aren't awkwardly sitting together in the open lobby, especially when I was nervous before my first appointment! Oh, and your treatment rooms are awesome. I've been to specialists' offices that were tiny and cramped in comparison.

Revive was initially recommended to me by friends, I've been a client now for a few different treatments. I received Dysport from Katie and Kisha and they are both amazing! On my last visit, I had a consultation for lip injections. At my consultation, Kisha provided me with Restylane Kysse lip injections. Kisha is a true artist! I am completely obsessed with my lips! Kisha was so informative, knowledgeable, and sweet!

– Tanya

I was really impressed with how Kisha mapped out my face before she injected my Botox. I have had Botox at other places and have never experienced this. Her experience and treatment process truly put me at ease during my appointment. I will definitely be back!
