About Microneedling with PRP
Advanced Dermatology offers microneedling, a skin rejuvenation treatment that punctures tiny holes with our SkinPen technology into the skin on your face, neck, or chest to stimulate skin repair. As an added benefit, your own platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is then applied to the same area to further heal and allow the skin to grow new cells. These two treatments together can reduce the appearance of scars, wrinkles, fine lines, spots, and other skin issues. The texture of your skin can 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 one of our practitioners at Advanced Dermatology in Katy, League City, Pearland, or Sugar Land, TX.

"My first son had acne really bad and went to other dermatologists, didn’t improve, then Toni saw him and told her everything he has been on, even antibiotics, scarring was even beginning, she knew Accutane was the only choice. Blood work of course each time, but totally worth it, he is now 20 years old and has the best skin ever, even the scarring disappeared! He was on it for about a year. Now our entire family goes. Then My youngest had a little knot on the back of his neck bone, no worries, unless any changes occurred, it did about a year later, it grew and he was in pain, they wanted to rule out cancer, we went to Advanced Dermatology in League City because that’s where they perform the surgeries. The Dr. was wonderful there! Talked to him about basketball to keep his mind on things that makes him happy. He did awesome, they removed it, biopsy came back no Cancer! Even gave us his personal number in case we needed him sooner before the stitches were removed. It looks great!"- T.K. / Facebook / Dec 29, 2020
"I had a check up today with Dr. Nguyen. Before going to this appointment I read reviews about the Sugar Land and Katy locations. Contrary to some of the reviews I read, I felt Dr. Nguyen was extremely professional, thorough in her exam of my moles and complimentary towards me. Unlike the Sugar Land office, where I question why an assistant to a PA I used to see was not wearing gloves.. and also I felt like I upset the PA because after she removed a benign spot off my chest, it became infected and I felt like the PA was threatened by my questions about the infection and my complaint about the assistant not wearing gloves. Just decided I need to go to someone else. If someone is doing anything like numbing my skin for a biopsy( which was the procedure) I expect them to wear gloves. Very unprofessional. I did go back one time to the Sugar Land location and saw someone else, who I liked, but this time they had no openings when I needed to be seen on my time frame but the Katy location had an opening . Things happen for a reason, and I’m glad I ended up with Dr. Nguyen at Katy Advanced Dermatology!"- D.B. / Yelp / Dec 29, 2020
A perfect candidate for microneedling with PRP would be anyone looking to change the appearance or texture of the surface of their face. Dry skin, uneven skin tone, rough texture, age spots, loose skin, wrinkles, acne, and scarring are all skin conditions that could benefit from a microneedling with PRP treatment. This treatment can also be used to help combat the effects of sun damage that may have caused your skin to have a rough texture or hyperpigmentation.
Prior to the microneedling section 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 condensed into PRP. For the microneedling treatment, Advanced Dermatology uses state-of-the-art technology to create tiny holes in your skin. The small needles used will not damage your skin but will instead help stimulate the production of collagen. Once the microneedling is complete, the PRP serum will be applied to 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 treatment, you may experience some normal effects, such as bruising, swelling, and redness. We recommend that you do not wear makeup, use abrasive skin cleansers, or submerge in a swimming pool for approximately 72 hours post-treatment. These activities can expose your skin to harsh chemicals and bacteria that could lead to adverse reactions. You should also minimize sun exposure or use protective measures when going outside. Final results are typically seen within several weeks as the skin works to repair and heal itself.
Get the best of both worlds
Microneedling with PRP can be very beneficial for individuals looking to restore the appearance and feel of their skin. It can help to make skin look younger, smoother, firmer, and luminous. We invite you to learn more about this treatment by talking to one of our certified aestheticians or by scheduling a consultation at Advanced Dermatology in Katy, League City, Pearland, or Sugar Land, TX.
