Regenerative Skin Treatment
At Face Forward Houston microneedling can reduce fine lines, scars from acne, texture irregularities and shrink pores. We also offer microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for boosted skin rejuvenation. PRP is derived from your own blood by centrifuging your blood to isolate the plasma. The plasma is full of growth factors and molecules that signal the tissue to regenerate and rebuild. The concentrated plasma is infused into your skin during microneedling to speed up the creation of new skin cells. You can have this regenerative treatment at Face Forward Houston that repairs damaged skin so that you can enjoy healthier, more radiant skin. To find out if microneedling or microneedling with PRP is correct for you, have a consultation with one of our medical providers.
Firmer, Younger-Looking Skin
Microneedling is a non-invasive treatment that uses tiny needles to create controlled micro-injuries in a deep layer of the skin. Microneedling treatment promotes the skin’s self-repair mechanism. The body’s response to these small traumas is to boost natural healing and repair the skin with new collagen and elastin. The sterile micro-needles create mini injuries, which is enough to prompt the deeper layer of skin to rebuild, yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring. As the skin repairs itself with renewed collagen, the result is smoother, firmer, younger-looking skin.
We offer microneedling treatment with two options:
Face Forward Houston customizes and combines aesthetic treatments to ensure you get the best results. Our aesthetic medical practitioners are experienced, skilled, and precise, but most importantly, they care about enhancing your areas of concern and achieving your cosmetic goals.
Enhance Your Skin’s Health
Your medical aesthetic provider at Face Forward will listen to your areas of concern, discuss your skin type, and devise a plan that may include microneedling with PRP to help enhance your skin’s health and beauty.
A Transformative Treatment
The procedure is done in the office and takes approximately 20 minutes. Most Houston microneedling patients prefer to apply numbing cream to the face before the treatment for about 30 minutes. Plan for your visit to last about one hour.
This transformative treatment is performed right in the office of Face Forward Houston. You can relax in our lounge chairs of the med spa while you numb, and treatment is done in the same room. Many patients opt for a vitamin IV drip, B12 shot, or other treatment at the same visit. Our Aesthetic Nurse Practitioner tailors each treatment to the patient's needs based on years of training and experience.
Results You Can See and Feel
Results & recovery may vary, but the following timeline provides a general idea of the recovery process.
When you’re ready for your microneedling Houston Facial Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Regina Rodman, will perform the procedure at her surgery center located in Houston, TX.
Face Forward recommends that patients commit to at least 3 sessions of microneedling, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. You will see results after one treatment, but it will take 2 to 3 weeks after the final treatment to see maximum results.
Microneedling is a form of collagen induction treatment that works by puncturing the skin with a microneedling pen in order to promote cellular regeneration. Injectable or topical PRP reduces microneedling-induced inflammation, speeds recovery, and enhances collagen and elastin production.
Pain is very minimal. We recommend that patients plan to come on time to their appointment, where topical numbing cream is applied to the face and allowed to sit for 30 minutes. This ensures a comfortable treatment. Patients can expect to feel a slight vibration with this treatment after a topical numbing agent, making it pain-free and tolerable.
