About Microneedling with PRP
Microneedling is a process that punctures little holes in the skin on your neck, face, or torso to stimulate skin restoration. Our team is proud to perform this procedure with the MicroPen by Eclipse, the leading manufacturer of automated microneedling. As an extra bonus, your platelet-rich plasma (PRP) may be applied to the same region during or after your microneedling session to help skin tissues to heal and enable the skin to begin growing new cells. When combined, the procedures can lessen the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, large pores, and scars, along with other skin problems. The feel of your skin could be significantly enhanced to look smoother and more even in tone without damaging the epidermis. If you'd like to find out more about microneedling with or without PRP, contact Setty Plastics & Aesthetics in Dallas, TX to schedule a private consult with Dr. Naveen Setty.
"Hello, this review is for gynecomastia surgery with Dr. Setty in McKinney, TX. First, let me say this is not my first gynecomastia surgery nor was this a correction to anything regarding the first surgery. I grew up with tuberous gyno since 6th grade and had perfect results after an easy surgery at a well-known surgeon in an upper-class part of Los Angeles. I was 18 and went off to enjoy college with new people living a normal life as if gyno never happened. At 23 right before graduating, I asked a derm. for finasteride because of hair loss concerns. Gyno is a well-known side effect of this drug. I called my first surgeon's office and they confirmed I would not be at an increased risk given my history, but they were wrong. After only 6 doses of fin, I got familiar sensations in the upper armpit, the telltale gynecomastia area. I stopped immediately but it was full-blown gyno by the summer. Complete nightmare, one of the worst times of my life. I got a job out in Dallas very quickly after school and was able to save up for surgery ASAP. I looked up some doctors in North Dallas and found Dr. Setty's page. I saw they had a Snapchat and a youtube where he introduces himself and even performs a surgery, I liked that transparency very much. There was a price estimate for his gynecomastia surgery, which was very reasonable. Most other doctors in the area at this time are not listing prices on their sites, you have to look it up on realself which is an untrustworthy site I feel. In the "About Us" section the Setty team did say competitive pricing is one of their goals. That broke down the first barrier between patient and doctor and drew me in for a consultation. This was in January, and COVID had not hit America as hard yet. However they still screened people who came in, had everything sanitized, and on top of that, the clinic itself was gorgeous. The part of McKinney they are in is gorgeous. Very clean and upscale and modern, fresh coats of paint on everything and tons of parking. Everyone at the office is very friendly and professional. At the consultation, I got to meet everyone and Dr. Setty did confirm I would be a good candidate for surgery. I felt confident energy right away meeting him. They considered my individual circumstances and worked generously with me on the pricing. I scheduled the pre-op, had no issues ever reaching them when I needed communication, everything was just really seamless with thoughtful touches here and there. I really felt comfortable with them as a patient and they took very good care of me. Scheduling appointments was always easy. Note this was all as the virus was worsening and they were quickly having to readjust their business. I never felt rushed or forgotten. I was very happy with their coronavirus response and I am sorry if they lost any business to it. The big day came and the hospital was brand new like they had just unwrapped the packaging and cut the ribbon to the door. Completely clean and so huge, wow. I had expressed concerns about post-surgery nausea and pre-surgery anxiety, and they took care of me. Luckily I work an office job and was able to manage the vest/pads under long sleeve shirts for the recovery. I used this silicone gel for scars that I bought at the front desk of the Setty office, they didn't have this when I had my first gyno surgery. The scars from my first surgery are more visible than Dr. Setty's. It is exactly 6 months from my surgery now and in the past week, I finally started to forget to apply it on the scars every night. I have an ankle that I also had 2 surgeries on and it is much more sensitive and visibly scarred than my chest. Dr. Setty took care of me physically and emotionally and never once lost his cool. It is a hallmark of a job well done that I now live a normal life again and actually forget that I even had this surgery not even a year ago. Thank you Dr. Setty. P.S. if you are a gynecomastia prone individual, stay away from finasteride"- J.B. / Google / Jul 29, 2020
"I couldn't be happier with my results. I went for a breast augmentation and lift and was given all of the information for pre, during and post surgery. I knew what to expect, and they were all very willing to help any time I had a question. The staff couldn't have been anymore inviting and warm. They made me feel very at home and comfortable. Highly recommend Dr. Setty and his team!"- C.C. / Google / Jul 28, 2020
"Let me just start by saying I have never wrote a review in my life. I am a fair skin African American who has been struggling with hyperpigmentation and unwanted facial hair since I was a teenager.Ive been to Electrolosis and so many laser hair removal and spas than I can count. Kate Cross is SO PASSIONATE and an detail professional about making people look good! Shout out to her !!! U don’t find many people whose passionate about what they do these days it’s all about the money. Speaking of which this place is so affordable! They work with u. I use to get skin pen every other month, not any more I’ve only had one this year ! I promise to god.I had been burned by laser hair removal that left the scarring and pigmentation.I use to be insecure. I recently went home to a funeral . Everyone was so amazed on how my face cleared up! The staff is very professional. I look so good now my female supervisors at work don’t even look at me anymore out of envy. I did add dandelion tea on my own that helps with hyperpigmentation too. But everything else I owe to Setty plastics god n Kate. Thank You!"- T.B. / Yelp / Jul 23, 2020
"Every single member of this office has been incredibly friendly and helpful. Dr. Setty and his staff truly go above and beyond to make you feel welcome and cared for. When I came in for a consultation for a breast augmentation and lift, I was both nervous and embarrassed. I had been to consultations with other plastic surgeons previously and none made me feel as safe or non-judged as Dr. Setty. Everyone from those who worked at the front desk, to Jessica (billing and scheduling) to Giovanna (his amazing nurse), we’re kind and helpful and ready to answer any and all questions I had. Could not have asked for a better experience!!"- J.M. / Google / Jul 23, 2020

An ideal candidate for microneedling is anybody seeking to modify the look or feel of the top layer of their skin. Uneven skin tone, dry skin, harsh texture, loose skin, age spots, acne, wrinkles, and scarring are skin conditions that may benefit from a microneedling with PRP therapy. This therapy may also be employed to fight the effects of sun damage that might have caused the skin to have a rough texture or hyperpigmentation.
A microneedling treatment is completed in a private treatment room in around 30 – 60 minutes with local anesthesia or numbing cream if preferred; however, patients generally report little or no pain and discomfort. The areas of skin being addressed will be cleaned before the handpiece is evenly passed over it. If you are combining your microneedling procedure with PRP therapy, a member of our healthcare team will take a sample of your blood for the treatment. The blood will then be transferred to our laboratory so it may begin the separation process during which the platelets, growth factors, and stem cells can be made into PRP. When the microneedling is finished, the PRP serum will be applied to your skin where it will be naturally absorbed. Once the PRP is allowed to soak into your skin, we'll clear away the remaining PRP and conclude your session.
What to Expect
After your therapy, you might encounter some ordinary effects, such as swelling, redness, and bruising. 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 complexion. You should schedule around 4 – 6 follow-up sessions performed every 4 – 6 weeks for ideal outcomes and long-lasting skin benefits.
