what is Microneedling?

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. 

Who is a candidate for MICRONEEDLING?

The best candidates for microneedling:

  • Any skin type and color
  • Have skin concerns, such as fine lines and wrinkles, aged skin, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, minor scars, and uneven skin tone and texture
  • Desire better-looking, more radiant skin
  • Do not want an invasive surgical procedure
  • Have realistic outcomes

What to Expect during MICRONEEDLING

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. 

how long is recovery after MICRONEEDLING?

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.
