When home skin products aren't effective but you aren't ready for surgery, discover the ability of professional nonsurgical treatments, such as microneedling, to rejuvenate your skin. Board-certified gynecologist Dr. Aimee Nguyen is pleased to offer microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) at her office in Dallas, TX. Microneedling uses several fine-gauge needles to safely and effectively create micro-injuries in the needed areas of the skin. The micro-injuries trigger the body's natural production of collagen and elastin, two nutrients that increase the appearance and health of the skin. Schedule a consultation at Dallas Vaginal Rejuvenation to hear more about the benefits of microneedling and ways to customize the treatment for your needs and goals.
"I don’t think I have thanked Dr. Nguyen enough for the level of care, attention and expertise she has showed before, during and after my surgery.I had a pelvic, prolapse and bladder surgery six weeks ago and I, as had heard from many, was expecting some post-op pain or big discomfort, nothing! I went home and had the best recovery one would have dreamed of. Today, after six weeks I have to force myself to remember I had a big surgery. Thank you Dr. Nguyen!!!"- T.D. / Healthgrades / Dec 16, 2017
"Pick This Doctor - I like Dr. Nguyen a lot as a person and I could not be happier with the actual results. I’m so glad that I took the steps to make this happen. The recovery was fine. Of course it was rough but it’s short lived, worth it, and nothing you can’t get through."- T. / RealSelf / Jan 12, 2019
"Best surgical experience ever. They have become like family to me - Here's a brief background on myself before I dive into this review: I am a female who is finishing up her last year in college. I grew up unaware that my labia were longer than what is considered to be normal. I always just thought that every other woman I knew was also having the same everyday difficulties that I experienced (difficult to put tampons in, chaffing, bulging in swimsuits, etc)...."- S. / RealSelf / Jan 11, 2019
"Incredible Results - Labioplasty is a very private matter. I did not tella soul I was having this done. Well, not technically. I found a friend of mine (very close friend) had it done in another city. Nonetheless, this is not a topic of discussion. So, that’s why I’m writting this. I am not usuayone to write reviews, etc. But for Dr. Nguyen and her staff, absolutely !!! My experience was 10/10. And tha..."- M. / RealSelf / Jan 10, 2019
"Cutting Those Wings Was the Best $ Ever Spent! - I wish I would have done this sooner. I initally thought that any surgeon could proform this type of surgery, but after having it done I now realize it takes SKILLS! I'm so glad I had a woman Dr. who knows a womans body proforming this on me. The healing process and pain wasn't bad at all. I only took ibuprofen and iced for the swelling. I'm rarely ever adjusting my undies/jeans/tights anymore..."- W. / RealSelf / Jan 10, 2019
You may benefit from microneedling if you have slight to moderate skin issues, like a decrease in elasticity or rough skin texture. Microneedling treatments can also minimize the appearance of stretch marks, scars, and pores. You must be willing to wait a while before seeing improvements from your microneedling treatment since the collagen and elastin will need some time to have an effect on the skin, but you will develop natural-looking results and gain healthier overall skin.
A microneedling treatment is completed in a private treatment room in about 30 – 60 minutes with numbing cream or a local anesthesia if preferred, but patients generally report mild or no discomfort. The skin being treated will be cleansed before the microneedling handpiece is passed evenly over the area. After the microneedling is complete, a topical treatment like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or a vitamin-infused serum can be applied for deeper penetration of the nutrients into the skin. A moisturizer will be massaged in along with UV protection since your skin will be sensitive after the treatment.
What to Expect
After your treatment, you might experience mild swelling and redness for about a day, but this should fade naturally. It may take about 1 – 2 months as the collagen and elastin levels increase before you see visible improvements in the health and appearance of your complexion. You should plan to get about 4 – 6 maintenance treatments every 4 – 6 weeks for ideal results and long-lasting skin health.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does microneedling cost?
Microneedling is a nonsurgical approach to skin tightening and rejuvenation. Therefore, it is a treatment that is relatively cost affordable for most patients. The pricing is based on the condition being treated as well as how many sessions are needed to create the right outcome. During your initial consultation, we will prepare a skin analysis and treatment plan, which covers costs and what to expect during the procedure.
Best way to explain microneedling?
Microneedling is known as collagen induction therapy. Simply stated, collagen is what keeps our skin supple, smooth, and tight. Microneedling is a newer, revolutionary nonsurgical treatment that uses a handheld device with approximately 12 very fine needles on the end. When these needles are gently glided over the skin, they puncture it, creating small wounds that actually serve to break down old scar tissue and help generate new skin cell growth. Once healed, the new skin appears healthy, brighter, and firm. During this process, the production of new collagen and elastin occurs and leads to an overall improved blood flow to the skin, enhancing the health and glow of your appearance over time.
What are the most common conditions treated with microneedling?
This nonsurgical skin rejuvenation treatment is best used for men and women who wish to improve the appearance of mild acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, moderate sagging skin, and stretch marks. It is an excellent procedure to help improve skin texture and tone, reduce pore size, and bring back a youthful glow.
How many treatments are recommended for optimal results?
Most of our patients undergo 3 – 6 microneedling sessions to attain their desired results. However, what you are trying to improve will dictate the treatment plan. This procedure can be safely performed every 4 – 6 weeks as needed. For patients seeking scar reduction, it generally takes about six sessions. Collagen induction typically occurs at about the third treatment. Microneedling can be applied to most parts of the body, including the face, neck, arms, thighs, chest, and legs. It is common for results to begin to appear after the first treatment.
Is microneedling safe for everyone?
For the most part, microneedling is safe for most skin types and colors. Because it does not injure the epidermis, the chance for post-procedure inflammation or pigmentation damage is minimal. Microneedling is not recommended for those who have used Accutane within the last 2 – 3 months, or for those who have skin infections or open wounds, herpes simplex, or are actively undergoing radiation. In addition, it is not recommended for pregnant women or women who are nursing, or for anyone who has a history of scarring or poor wound healing.
