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.

"Dr. Nguyen’s office was very welcoming and efficient. Every visit was timely, very little waiting & each step was met with a friendly & capable medical staff. My gynecologist recommended Dr. Nguyen & she was so right. My surgery went very well & the results are as Dr. Nguyen promised. Very little pain & the encouragement by Dr. Nguyen made all the difference. I almost postponed my surgery due to another issue, but Chandler kept my slot open & ultimately I had my surgery. I would recommend Dr. Nguyen in a minute. The medical staff in the office to the hospital nurses, Texas Health Presby, were exceptional. Dr. Nguyen answered all my questions prior to surgery & was very helpful the day of the surgery. An overnight stay was all that was needed & home rest was next. Thanks to Dr. Nguyen & her staff I am recovering nicely. Excellent is a better rating!"- K.C. / Yelp / Apr 28, 2023
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.
