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.
"Dr. Brissett, If you ever have anyone who would like to talk to someone I would be happy to do so. Thank you for the wonderful care you have given me so far! You have been a blessing in my life and I am most grateful for you! May God continue to bless the work of your hands. Sincerely, AL"- AL / Other / Jun 15, 2017

- Any skin type and color

- Do not want an invasive surgical procedure

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.
