About Microneedling with PRP
Houston Galleria Surgery & Medspa offers microneedling, a treatment that punctures small holes into the skin on your face, neck, or chest to stimulate skin repair. As an additional benefit, your platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can be applied to the same area to help the tissue heal and permit the skin to grow new cells. These two treatments together can decrease the appearance of scars, fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, large pores, and other skin conditions. The texture of your skin may be greatly improved to appear smoother and more even without damaging the skin. If you would like to learn more about the microneedling with PRP treatment, schedule a one-on-one consultation with cosmetic surgeon Dr. Marcos Ikeda at his office in Houston, TX.

An ideal candidate for microneedling with PRP would be any individual looking to alter the appearance or texture of the surface of their face. Dry skin, uneven skin tone, coarse texture, age spots, loose skin, wrinkles, acne, and scarring are skin conditions that could benefit from a microneedling with PRP treatment. This procedure can also be utilized to combat the effects of sun damage that may have caused the skin to have a rough texture or hyperpigmentation.
Prior to the microneedling portion of your treatment, someone from our medical staff will draw your blood for the PRP collection. The drawn blood will then be taken to our lab for the separation process where your stem cells, platelets, and growth factors will be turned into PRP. For the microneedling treatment, Houston Galleria Surgery & Medspa employs innovative technology to create small holes in your skin. The little needles used will not damage your skin but will instead help stimulate the production of collagen. Once the microneedling is done, the PRP serum will be placed on the skin to sink in. After the PRP is fully absorbed, we will remove the serum and cleanse your skin.
What to Expect
Following your microneedling with PRP procedure, you could experience some regular effects, such as swelling, bruising, and redness. We recommend that you do not wear makeup, use abrasive skin cleansers, or submerge in pools for around 72 hours following the session. Activities like this could expose your skin to harsh chemicals and bacteria that could lead to adverse reactions. You also need to limit sun exposure or use protective measures when going outside. Final results are usually seen within several weeks as the skin works to repair and heal itself.
Restore and Revitalize
This microneedling procedure can be very useful for individuals looking to restore the look and feel of their skin. It can help make skin look younger, smoother, firmer, and luminous.
