If over-the-counter skin care products are no longer proving effective but you don't want surgical procedures, consider minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatments such as microneedling. We also use microneedling as a facial procedure to promote anti-aging and a youthful glow. Board-certified otolaryngologist & head and neck surgeon Dr. Masoud Saman and his trained team of aesthetic professionals are happy to perform microneedling (collagen induction therapy) at their Plano, TX office. Microneedling uses many fine needles to effectively and safely make micro-injuries in the skin. The micro-injuries prompt the natural production of elastin and collagen, two nutrients that improve the health and appearance of the complexion. Make an appointment for a consultation at Saman ENT & Facial Plastic Surgery to learn more about the results of microneedling and how to personalize your procedure for your skin needs and goals.

MicroNeedling With PRP
Scars can be incredibly frustrating to individuals for a number of reasons. Whether you have a facial scar from surgery, a traumatic injury, or an underlying skin condition, a scar can be very distracting and difficult to treat. While there are some at-home remedies for very minimal scars, like a chemical exfoliant or cream. Generally, over-the-counter medication results are mediocre at best when it comes to scar tissue.
Without taking a surgical approach, Saman ENT & Facial Plastic Surgery offers microneedling to treat scarring. When microneedling first came out, it was mainly used to help with skin texture issues. Today, it is effective at minimizing both uneven texture and discoloration. Dr. Saman believes that microneedling is truly the future of facial treatments. While it might sound scary, don’t let the concept intimidate you. We use a numbing cream to ensure the procedure is as fast and comfortable as possible for you. Most of our clients note minimal discomfort and are surprised by how quickly the treatment is performed. The needles are very similar to acupuncture needles, which are designed to puncture the skin without causing damage. Instead, it probes the skin to stimulate collagen and protein production. Dr. Saman will select how many and how deep the needles will penetrate the skin to effectively treat your scar tissue.
Hair restoration with PRP therapy is helpful for men and women who want to increase the fullness, thickness, and appearance of their hair and hairlines. PRP is considered a recent medical phenomenon for all of its anti-aging properties. Using the patient's own blood, the PRP can be injected, massaged, or infused into the scalp in tandem with a microneedling treatment to encourage healthy hair growth.
"I came for a consult and was put on the schedule for surgery the same day (for roughly a month later). The girls in the office are fantastic and efficient and great with follow up calls and scheduling, etc. Dr. Kelling is lovely and we talked extensively about my history and concerns about my procedure (no fancy stuff, just airflow issues). As for my procedure (septoplasty and much needed turbinate reduction), I am overwhelmingly overjoyed at being able to breathe freely agai...n. I wake up in the morning feeling refreshed and alert and I ask myself if I even need a cup of coffee. I’m no longer a slave to caffeine in the morning, I just drink it because I enjoy it. I can now smell colors! Ok, maybe not colors, but I am moved to tears at least once a day at all the things I can smell and taste again after nearly a decade of deficient airflow. My only regret is I did not find Dr. Saman sooner. Though I did not take advantage of his artistic talent in rhinoplasty (though I would have totally gone for it five years ago), I felt like it was best to overshoot rather than undershoot when it comes to a surgeon’s skill. He is very transparent about his procedures and techniques on social media, I found him on Snapchat and followed on Instragram as well and I have to say it didn’t take long for me to feel comfortable and confident he could help me. Thank you Dr. Saman! You have helped me heal in more ways than I can express."- J.A. / Facebook / Jul 10, 2018

It's possible you could be a candidate for microneedling treatments if you experience light or mild complexion problems, like rough skin texture or low elasticity. Collagen induction therapy procedures may also reduce the look of scars, pores, and stretch marks. You should be willing to wait before seeing the results of your microneedling procedure because the elastin and collagen require time to have an impact on the complexion; however, you will have results that look natural and gain better overall skin health.
What to Expect
You may have some redness and swelling for around one day; however, this should subside quickly on its own. It can take around 1 – 2 months as the elastin and collagen supply increases until you notice significant changes in the appearance and health of your skin. You should schedule around 4 – 6 follow-up sessions performed every 4 – 6 weeks for optimal outcomes and lasting skin benefits.
Plan Your Procedure
Microneedling is performed in a treatment room in around 30 – 60 minutes with local anesthesia or numbing cream if requested; however, most patients feel little or no pain and discomfort. The areas of skin being addressed will be cleaned before the microneedling handpiece is evenly passed over. Once the microneedling is performed, a treatment such as PRP (platelet-rich plasma) or a serum with a vitamin infusion may be applied so the nutrients can penetrate deeper into the skin. A moisturizer selected for your skin type will be massaged in along with sunscreen because the treated skin will be more sensitive following the procedure.
