What is Microneedling?
If over-the-counter skin products aren't proving effective, but you don't want surgical procedures, learn more about minimally invasive treatments to rejuvenate the skin, like microneedling. At About Face & Body Medical Spa, our aesthetic team is happy to perform microneedling (collagen induction therapy). Microneedling uses multiple fine-gauge needles to effectively and safely create micro-injuries in the skin. The micro-injuries trigger the natural production of collagen and elastin, two nutrients that contribute to the overall health and appearance of your complexion. Often performed with other treatments, such as vitamin serums or platelet-rich plasma (PRP), microneedling can help minimize stretch marks, scars, and pores. Schedule a consultation at our Katy, TX practice to learn more about the benefits of microneedling and how to customize the procedure for your skin needs and goals.

How does microneedling work?
A microneedling treatment is performed in one of our office procedure rooms in around 30 – 60 minutes with numbing cream or a local anesthesia if requested, but patients generally report little or no pain and discomfort. The areas of skin being treated will be cleaned before the handpiece is evenly passed over. Once the microneedling is performed, a treatment, like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or a vitamin-infused serum, can be applied so the nutrients can penetrate deeper into the skin. A moisturizer selected for your skin type will be massaged in along with UV protection since the treated skin will be sensitive following the procedure.
