Even after acne goes away, it may leave lingering scars that take a toll on your self-confidence. But Mountain View dermatologist Dr. Duke Khuu is proud to offer SkinPen, the first and only FDA-approved microneedling device to treat acne scars in the U.S.
With as few as three minimally invasive treatments spaced 30 days apart, you can rejuvenate your skin and minimize acne scarring.
The microneedling treatment works by creating very tiny skin pricks that stimulate the skin’s natural healing process and the production of collagen. As new skin tissue is formed, you get smoother, youthful-looking skin that’s more even in tone and texture.
In addition, Dr. Khuu can enhance the treatment by combining it with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Skin Rejuvenation, a cutting-edge procedure that uses your own blood to repair your cells. Basically, a small sample of blood is taken and put in a centrifuge to extract the yellow platelet-rich plasma. (All the red blood cells are discarded.)
Plasma is a component of your blood that contains proteins that help your blood clot and support cell growth. The plasma will be dabbed onto your skin during the microneedling treatment. The way it works is that injecting PRP into the tissues will stimulate your body to grow new, healthy cells and promote healing so that your skin looks younger and smoother.
“PRP enhances healing and delivers better results than microneedling alone,” explained Dr. Khuu.
The treatment can be used to smooth over acne scars and can also be used to rejuvenate skin on the face, neck, chest and hands. It can also be applied to minimize stretch marks on bellies and buttocks. The procedure is safe and minimally invasive and there’s no significant downtime.
The SkinPen and PRP procedures are just two of the many cosmetic treatments offered by Dr. Khuu. You can learn more about these and his many other offerings on Saturday, March 7, at his Day of Beauty event.
