PRP is combined with microneedling for anti-aging repair, reducing fine lines, and decreasing the pore size. In a
study comparing vitamin C microneedling and PRP microneedling for treating acne scars, the PRP method was deemed the
better option.1 The best time to massage PRP down micro-channels is 5 and 30 minutes after the microneedling.2
