To safely and gently rejuvenate a patient’s face, Medical Aesthetician Annie Christenson, provides the SkinPen microneedling treatment to patients at Dr. Anthony Brissett's Center for Facial Plastic Surgery in Houston. The SkinPen delivers thousands of micro-injuries to initiate the body’s wound healing process. The body begins to break down damaged tissue and produce healthy new cells. Dr. Brissett suggests this treatment for patients with uneven skin tone, texture and scar concerns, lines, wrinkles, and skin that need firming.
"During my visit at the Doctor's office, the customer service was over the top."- Anonymous / Office Visit / Jan 30, 2018
"67 Years Young - Seeing a doctor doesn't get better than this. I have been travelling from New York and now Maine once a year for at least 10 years so that Dr Brissett can maintain my youthful appearance since he did my face lift. The lift was amazing - no swelling and no bruising. How many people can brag about that? The results were so amazing ( nobody even knew I had one - no scars ) - everyone knew I looked great but they didn't know how I did it. So, when you have such an amazing doctor - why look elsewhere? He is the greatest!! I have total confidence in his work. And, he is always so cheerful and caring. And - he has a very caring staff that has been with him for years."- D. / RealSelf / May 22, 2018
"Ethical plastic surgeon - Dr. Brissett is incredibly professional and highly skilled. His office staff is also very warm and welcoming.I went in for a Kybella consultation. Dr. Brissett actually erred on the side of saying I didn't need it, which I found to be very ethical (compared to most doctors who will just try to upsell you). I insisted that I wanted it done, and we were both pleasantly surprised by how well the..."- K. / RealSelf / May 22, 2018
"Reconstruction of Nose - I was referred to Dr. Brissett for reconstruction surgery (flap procedure) on my nose after skin cancer was removed. I was very anxious about the procedure. Dr. Brissett took time to address all of my concerns. His kind, calm energy and faith made me feel like I was the most special patient he had! I trust him completely and the surgery results were fantastic!"- J.S. / RealSelf / May 14, 2018
"Dr. Brissett Saved My Face After Cancer! - I was told by my dermatologist that I had skin cancer on my nose and would need a Mohs surgeon to remove it. My Mohs Surgeon then told me that it was possible I would need plastic surgery to replace what she was going to have to remove from my nose (which was most of my nose). She referred me to Dr. Brissett who made me a promise the very first time I met him. He told me that his goal and..."- C. / RealSelf / Apr 30, 2018
The best candidates for microneedling:
- Any skin type and color

- Desire better-looking, more radiant skin
- Do not want an invasive surgical procedure
- Have realistic outcomes
What to Expect
The patient’s face will be thoroughly cleaned prior to the procedure. A thin layer of numbing gel will be applied for about 20 min. The skin of the face and neck will then be treated with the SkinPen. The treatment will leave the skin red for that evening however by morning make-up can be applied to the face. Treatments can take 60 - 90 minutes to complete.
The downtime may be some redness, swelling and discomfort for that night. The skin may look pink and also feel dry and tight for about 1 day after treatment. Moisturizer should be applied to alleviate these side effects. There will be immediate results after microneedling, where patients should experience smoother, tighter, brighter, and more even-toned skin. For best results 3 treatments are recommended over 3 months accompanied with the SkinFuse 90 day post-treatment products.
