Procedures ( View All )

Overview

Rejuvenated, refreshed, and renewed skin can be attained without going under the knife, but instead, patients can turn to microneedling. A newer type of nonsurgical skincare procedure, microneedling uses the innovative MicroPen®, which is a handheld device consisting of numerous fine needles. By using the MicroPen, Plano, TX double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Vu Ho, creates tiny (micro) injuries into the skin. This jump starts the skin’s natural ability to heal itself by initiating the production of collagen and elastin. These two natural components help improve the overall clarity, tone, and texture of skin by diminishing lines and wrinkles and adding needed volume to the skin.

Best Candidates

During a consultation, a medical professional will help determine if microneedling is right for you in order to achieve your goals. The ideal candidates for microneedling:

  • Have facial lines and wrinkles
  • Have acne scars
  • Desire improved skin elasticity and tone
  • Desire long-lasting results
  • Desire a minimally invasive procedure
  • Are under 50 years old
  • Are not pregnant

What to Expect

The MicroPen is a handheld device that consists of stainless steel microneedles that will be used by the medical professional to create micro-injuries in the skin. The procedure is virtually painless since the needles are so tiny. After using the MicroPen, the patient can receive other procedures which will be enhanced by the microneedling procedures. Commonly, patients receive PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) Therapy for the “Vampire Facelift.” Blood that has been drawn and treated to separate out platelets, growth factors, and proteins will be placed on the face to rejuvenate the skin. Microneedling can also be followed up with facials, injectables, and more.

After treatment, patient can expect mild redness for about 5 days. Other common side effects are: flaking skin, tightness, and a sensation of burning. Patients should follow all aftercare instructions carefully. Normal activities can be resumed immediately after treatment.

Anticipated Results

Since microneedling increases the production of collagen and elastin, it can take some time before these full effects are visible to the patient. However, patients may begin to notice some form of improvement in their skin rather quickly. Full results are usually noticed 3 – 6 months after treatment and touch-up treatments are used to maximize results. Typically, patients receive 1 – 2 treatments per year for the best possible results.
