Harness your skin's healing power for flawless skin
As time passes, topical skincare treatments like serums, creams, and facials, are not enough to fight fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, scars, and sun damage caused by age and time. If you have decided that you are ready to take the next step in your professional skincare regimen, come to the experts at Medical Aesthetics & Laser for one of the latest aesthetic innovations: microneedling with PRP in The Woodlands.
This treatment uses the power of the platelet-rich plasma in your own blood to naturally stimulate your body’s powerful regenerative process for a visibly firmer, more even and youthful complexion. Microneedling with PRP can be performed on the face (also known as a Vampire Facial), in addition to treating the neck, arms, décolleté, abdomen, back, hands, and legs.

How it Works
Microneedling with PRP in The Woodlands is designed to offer all the amazing benefits of microneedling, with the added benefit of your body’s own platelet-rich plasma. After we gently draw your blood (the amount required depends on the area we are treating), we spin it in a centrifuge to separate out the platelet-rich plasma (PRP). PRP is a serum that is extremely rich in growth factors and cytokines that have been found to initiate collagen and elastin synthesis in the skin, as well as triggering a natural process called neovascularization, or the formation of new blood vessels and networks.
As we move the our microneedling device across the treated area, we re-deliver your PRP to your skin. Since we are using a substance derived from your own blood, there is no risk of allergic reaction from microneedling with PRP in The Woodlands from Medical Aesthetics & Laser. In the days and weeks, and even months, after your microneedling with PRP treatment, you will notice dramatically smoother, more even skin that has a renewed glow.
To prepare for your appointment for microneedling with PRP in The Woodlands, we suggest:
- Avoid direct sun exposure and tanning (including self-tanning) in the week leading up to your appointment.
- Discontinue use of retinol or Vitamin A skincare products for at least 5 days before your treatment.
- Get extra hydrated in the days leading up to your procedure to speed the healing process.
- If you are receiving a Vampire Facial, arrive with a bare face (no makeup, serums, or moisturizer).
After you receive microneedling with PRP in The Woodlands, it is important to:
- Do NOT wash your face. You may wash with lukewarm water and GENTLE cleanser to remove any remaining serum or dried blood right before bed. Avoid the use of a Clarisonic or other brush or washcloth for at least 48 hours.
- Apply a hydrating serum to moisturize the skin after it’s been cleansed.
- Do not apply sunscreen or makeup to the treated area for at least 12 hours.
- Avoid direct UV exposure for at least ten days and always use SPF 30+ when going outside.
- Wait to resume your normal skincare routine for at least 48 hours.

I have been going to Kalya at Medical Aesthetics and Laser for about 2 years. Kalya is extremely complete and thorough in delivering not only excellent customer service but in her knowledge of the skin and what treatments are needed to get results for a beautiful and younger appearance. Medical Aesthetics and Laser rocks. I would never go anywhere else.
Medical Aesthetics and Laser is wonderful. Since they are associated with a physician’s office they have a fantastic array of product and service choices. Kelli's knowledge and professionalism is unsurpassed. The office staff is welcoming and courteous- always giving each client the time that is needed.
Those who are trying to treat scars, stretch marks, fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, UV damage, and loss of radiance and volume in the face may find success with microneedling with PRP. This treatment is designed to give all the amazing benefits of microneedling, with a boost from the growth factors and other regenerative properties found in platelet-rich plasma.
If you are pregnant, use Accutane for acne, have skin conditions like eczema or herpes, scar easily, have a condition that prevents you from healing correctly, or have undergone skin radiation in the last 12 months, you may not be the best candidate for this treatment. The specialists at Medical Aesthetics & Laser will evaluate your medical history to determine if your skin can benefit from microneedling with PRP.
Many of our patients report that this treatment is not uncomfortable, thanks to the topical anesthetic that numbs the skin before we begin. The sensation is described like light sandpaper or a dry brush is moving across your skin. We also offer additional pain management options for those who feel anxiety or stress leading up to the treatment.
The results and benefits of the microneedling can be seen right away, with results continuing to improve over the next 4-8 weeks. You will notice a firmer, brighter looking complexion right away while the full wrinkle-fighting and skin-plumping benefits of the stimulated collagen production will take several weeks to appear.
Treatment costs can vary depending on your unique needs. Your Medical Aesthetics & Laser specialist will provide you with the exact cost of your microneedling with PRP procedure up front in your initial consultation. We can also accept CareCredit to cover the cost of your treatment.
