Microneedling with PRP

If you experience mild to moderate complexion problems, like rough skin texture or low elasticity, then Microneedling may be the procedure you need. 

Microneedling

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive procedure to tighten and rejuvenate your skin.

Using the FDA-approved microneedling pen, RejuvaPen, this procedure entails creating tiny skin wounds. These micro-injuries prompt your body’s natural ability to heal and generate new skin cell growth along with increased collagen and elastin  production.

Microneedling improves fine lines, acne scars, sun damage, and overall elasticity of skin.  For best results, 4-6 treatments are recommended, 4 weeks apart.  

PRP is Platelet Rich Plasma, which is a highly concentrated solution of plasma prepared from your own blood. It contains platelets that release numerous growth factors that help in increasing collagen production and cell growth and tissue regeneration. 

When added to Microneedling, it plays a major role in enhancing your skin’s ability to regenerate new cells, collagen and elastin to help to heal it.

Visible results can vary depending on many factors, such as age, nutrition, and overall health status. It can take up to 2-3 months to see results as the process of elastin and collagen production require time to have an impact on the complexion; however, you will have results that look natural and long lasting.

Botox began being used in cosmetic enhancement procedures just after the turn of the 21st century. Dysport is another equally efficacious and safe product, FDA approved 50 years ago. They are both widely used, trusted, and safe neuromodulator injectables used to temporarily stop muscle contractions that cause wrinkles on the face. That said, there are risks when using any type of facial injectable. For example, if a blood vessel in the skin is accidentally pierced, swelling and bruising can occur – although this tends to resolve over time. Patients with egg allergies should not use Botox as it is prepared in an albumin (egg) base, and patients who are allergic to Casein, found in cow’s milk, should not use Dysport.
In Your mid 30s: The most appropriate age to start Botox will depend on the skin color and the type of lifestyle (more versus less sun). In general, Caucasian women (who were not lifeguards) usually do best when they start Botox between 35 and 40.
The skin begins to lose volume and thins notably between the ages of 30 to 40. Botox can help prevent deep imprinted lines that we call wrinkles because of the effect of relaxing the muscles that can crease the skin. It can withstand the folding and creasing forces of the underlying muscle.

All injections will be administered by our talented, experienced and compassionate master injector nurse. She has a keen aesthetic eye and enjoys boosting self-image and confidence in our patients. At AustinMD, our approach to all of our medical aesthetics treatments is to address your concerns and deliver the best, most natural-looking results.

There are 2 types of dermal fillers most commonly used: Hyaluronic Acid (HA), and non-HA. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in many areas of the body including joints and skin, that can hold 1000x its weight in water. HA fillers help maintain shape, even out depressions in the skin, and provide hydration. They have improved lifting capacity (small amounts are required), improved longevity, and no need for allergy testing. They are also reversible by Hyaluronidase, and are naturally degraded by the body over time.
Aesthetic procedures are not covered under insurance, therefore we do not accept insurance. However, we do offer CareCredit, which is a a great financing option for health and wellness purchases not covered by insurance. With short term financing options of 6, 12, 18 or 24 months, no interest is charged on purchases when you make the minimum monthly payments and pay the full amount due by the end of the promotional period.

The AustinMD skin care is a medical-grade product line, which means that we use the appropriate dose of highly stabilized ingredients that last longer, and take longer to degrade. The cosmetic industry is highly unregulated, so we have no idea if what the label says is truly what’s inside the jar of serum or lotion. Medical companies have invested in clinical research and can prove that their products offer results. We stand behind the products we offer as it reflects on us.

Each appointment starts with a very thorough consultation evaluating your medical history, and muscle movement. At AustinMD, we always take into consideration our patient’s wishes and preferences regarding how much facial movement is desired as well as correction of asymmetries, when possible. Everyone will notice, but no one will know. Schedule your appointment today, you will be glad you did!

To determine a client’s treatment, Dr. Roy and his staff will review your entire medical history. You may want to request copies of your medical files to share with him.

Your medical files and treatments are held in the strictest of confidence; all correspondence is handled through our secure patient portal.
