Microneedling

MicroNeedling Treatments in Sugar Land – Houston TX

MicroNeedling $700

MicroNeedling with Human Stem Cell Growth Factors, FACTORFIVE $1100

We are excited to introduce our new Collagen P.I.N. Medical Micro-needling treatment. Micro-needling with PRP also known as, collagen induction therapy, or vampire facial is a minimally invasive treatment to rejuvenate the skin. The P.I.N. is a method of inducing a controlled injury into the skin’s dermal & epidermal junction triggering a release of natural growth factors, new collagen & elastin.

Innovative and effective, Collagen P.I.N. activates cellular regeneration to help tighten and lift skin, while minimizing common skin problems such as acne scars, fine lines, photo-aging, dull skin, poor texture, stretch marks and body scars.

What is MicroNeedling and MicroNeedling with Human Stem Cell Growth Factors, FactorFive:

As the Collagen P.I.N. is gently glided across the skin, thousands of micro-channels are created every second. These tiny micro-channels stimulate your skins own natural ability to heal itself, thereby creating new skin. This repair process, Collagen Induction Therapy, begins almost immediately. Fibroblasts, the cells that synthesize new collagen, are active for up to as much as one year after just one Collagen P.I.N. treatment. New collagen and elastin produce younger, healthier, plumper and firmer skin which aides in reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars and overall better tone and texture.

The FactorFive contains highly concentrated amounts of natural growth factors, about 350 overall. These human stem cell derived factors are backed by real science and have been shown to promote human dermal fibroblast proliferation, stimulate the production of cytokines, a variety of growth factors and collagen, It also has been proven to reverse the damaging effects of UV radiation, fight wrinkle formation, increase cell proliferation, increase collagen production and synthesis and decrease scar formation. FactorFive Stem Cells improve recovery time, allow for a more youthful glow, diminish fine lines more aggressively, reduce redness and increase skin thickness. These human derived stem cells found in the FactorFive help facilitate your skin’s own ability to repair itself.

How do these growth factors improve my skin and enhance my treatment?

As we age, there is a natural decrease in the levels of growth factors and cytokines that maintain the youthful appearance of our skin. Many of these factors are abundantly produced by our stem cells, which also decrease in number as we age. FactorFive helps your skin by providing human stem cell derived factors to boost and replace those that typically diminish with age. By providing the missing factors, the skin cells begin to behave more like they did when they were younger, including an increase in collagen, elastin, and extra cellular matrix proteins that support skin firmness.

Who can be treated and on what areas on the body?

Microneedling is a more affordable alternative to laser resurfacing and can treat skin types 1-6 on the Fitzpatrick Scale. It is safe for all skin types. The full face, Neck and most areas of the body can be treated unless the medical provider determines otherwise.

Treatments Sessions: How many Collagen P.I.N treatments will I need?

We recommend three to six initial sessions four to six-week intervals to start, followed by annual maintenance visits. Dependent upon your area of correction, concerns and skin type this treatment plan will be customized and may require varying treatments. Your Sugar Land Plastic Surgery skincare professional will ultimately determine a treatment schedule based on your individuals goals and desires.

Will the Collagen P.I.N. procedure hurt?

Prior to your treatment a topical numbing agent will be applied. A majority of patients report feeling very little to no pain at all once the agent has been applied.

Recovery: What will I look like after my treatment?

Patients will experience significant redness or a slightly pink color for the first 24 hours after treatment. Depending on the depth of treatment you may feel a little burning, tingling and tightness similar to a light sunburn for the first 24 hours. Downtime is limited to a day or two, with the skin completely recovering in about four to five days. Your Sugar Land Plastic Surgery representative will recommend a post treatment skincare regime based on your individual skin. These products will also help with any redness you might experience due to the treatment.

Results: How long will it take for me to see results from my treatment?

A majority of patients see results after just one treatment. Individual results vary depending on individual skin health. Most commonly patients report seeing positive changes as soon as 1-2 weeks after the first treatment. Your body’s collagen production usually takes about 4-8 weeks, so you will continue to see improvements over this time. Optimum results come from a series of treatments.
