Are you looking for a nonsurgical way to smooth out facial wrinkles, improve the texture of your skin, and rejuvenate your skin's appearance?

Because all constitutes retrieved in PRP are exclusively from you, there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction or intolerance. After the microneedling device creates thousands of micro-injuries to the skin, double board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Suzanne Trott will apply the prepared PRP to the skin. The results will leave you with a smoother, tauter, more youthful looking skin! Schedule a consultation to learn more about microneedling with PRP at Suzanne A. Trott, MD, FACS in Beverly Hills, CA.
"I happily recommend Dr. Suzanne Trott. After years of plastic surgery I gained the courage to have the hanging skin on my arms removed. Dr. Trott immediate made me feel comfortable. As a female doctor she understood why I was taking this step and I could not be more pleased. Sleeveless dresses here I come."- L.B. / Yelp / May 30, 2017
"Dr Trott is amazing! Best Botox in all of Beverly Hills. She makes it look so natural and the best part is she somehow makes it painless. On top of all that she is the sweetest person ever!"- A.M. / Yelp / May 13, 2017
"I can't say enough positive things about Dr. Trott! If I could give her more than five stars, I would. She is not only a stellar surgeon whose concern for her patients' comfort and satisfaction is paramount, she is also one of the loveliest people you would want to meet, and her attention to detail and the patient experience is unrivaled. We have all consulted with your typical big headed, arrogant, upselling, in a hurry plastic surgeons -- most I've met have been of this typ...e. Dr. Trott couldn't be more opposite! She is like having your best girlfriend also be a top-notch cosmetic surgeon who puts every patients' desires and satisfaction at the top of the priority list. I have had two procedures with Dr. Trott and if it is in the cards for me to have any more work, she is the only plastic surgeon I would trust. She has spoiled me, and I'd never be able to go back to those cookie-cutter, cut-and-paste guys who ignore a patients' desires and do what they personally please, such as give D size breasts to every woman who comes through the door. Dr. Trott listens to what you want from your procedure and does her utmost to give you results BEYOND your desires. Her aftercare is exemplary, and you will always be given all the time you need and you will never be rushed. Dr. Trott is also hands-on, and does not, as many surgeons do, pass off much of the patient care/interaction to their assistants. She answers all questions and does all aftercare herself, with excellent assistance from her very competent assistant Ady. I can't say enough about the comfort level provided by having a female surgeon when working on something as personal as sexual body parts. I am so glad every time I have to strip naked and look at my "bikini area" that it is "just us girls"! My level of discomfort would be much higher had my surgeon been a male stranger poking around in that area. Not only is Dr. Trott a stellar surgeon, the plus that she is female and not at all intimidating make her the perfect choice for surgeries in intimate areas and of an intimate nature. I am SO jazzed that I found her -- via a referral through one of BH's highest-end, word-of-mouth-only facial surgeons who also teaches at UCLA that a friend knew. He referred us to her, and she's changed my life. Do yourself a favor and have a consultation with her and learn what a top-notch surgeon and person Dr. Trott is."- B.C. / Facebook / May 11, 2017
"Best Plastic Surgeon in Southern California - Dr.Trott has ruined me for any other Beverly Hills plastic surgeon with the rep of being arrogant and big-headed. She is both the nicest, sweetest, most down to earth and approachable doctor I have worked with, she is also the most competent and attentive doctor a patient could wish for. The time she devotes to each appointment is amazing in itself! I have had several procedures with her,..."- W. / RealSelf / May 08, 2017
"My visits with Dr. Trott are great. She makes room for me in her busy schedule for Botox. She is always warm, welcoming and makes me feel very comfortable. The entire staff is friendly and extremely accommodating. I look forward to all of my visits, and would recommend Dr. Trott to anyone."- N.G. / Google / Apr 08, 2017
The best candidates for radio frequency microneedling may exhibit the following skin problems:
- Uneven skin tone
- Redness or hyperpigmentation
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scars
- Skin laxity
- Sun damage and/or sun spots
- Rough texture
What to Expect
Prior to the procedure, the treated area is cleaned and a thin layer of a topical gel is applied to numb the skin. The doctor will apply a sterile cartridge-tip with 12 micro-needles to a handheld device. The device will be pressed gently across the skin, gliding in one direction until the entire area has been treated. The feeling is comparable to sand paper moving over the skin. The procedure will result in tiny holes, known as micro channels, on the skin which will close almost immediately, triggering a healing response. This results in renewed skin, including a thickened dermis, which will soften the appearance of lines, wrinkles and scars. The procedure takes around 15 – 30 minutes.
A patient can expect the treated area to appear bright red, similar to a sunburn, immediately after microneedling. The redness can last anywhere from a day to up to a week. The intensity and duration of the redness are dependent upon the number of passes performed on the treatment area, as well as the particular area treated since microneedling can be performed on the face, neck, arms and décolleté. In some cases, there’s pinpoint bleeding. Since microneedling allows improved absorption of creams, gels and serums, a doctor will determine the best products for the patient post-procedure. These can include bleaching or lightening serums, vitamin C or hyaluronic serums to accelerate results
Right after the procedure, patients can expect the skin to glow. Over the course of a few weeks, a patient can expect to see a marked improvement in skin’s color, tone and texture. In addition, there should be a drastic reduction of lines and wrinkles. Microneedling is also effective in diminishing acne and traumatic scars and stretch marks. A patient’s appearance can continue to improve up to 6 months following initial treatment. While some patients benefit from a single treatment, 2 – 3 treatments are advised to get the best possible results. We will work closely with a patient to develop the right course of treatment based on his or her individual needs.
