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.
"I have been a patient of Dr. Anthony Brissett’s since 2015. Simply put, he is the only person I will now trust with my face. I’ve had both surgical procedures and minor cosmetic rejuvenation. I loved the changes, healed quickly, and no one was the wiser. My best friend probably stated it best: “I wouldn’t have known except you told me. You look like you-only better.” When I’ve had fillers done, I barely bruise if at all. Since starting with Dr. Brissett, I’ve referred friends, students, my husband, and my mother-in-law to him. Dr. Brissett was recommended to me by a well renowned surgeon initially, so I fully expected him to be a wonderfully skilled physician. However, I never expected him to be so warm and caring; hands down he has the best bedside manner I’ve ever seen in a medical professional. Likewise, his staff is amazing: Roxanna, Andrea, Regina, and Rachel are so friendly and accommodating; Annie (his esthetician) does fabulous work as well! Do yourself a favor - book an appt!"- L. / Healthgrades / Jan 24, 2020

"I am a patient of Dr. Brissett. I had a lower face lift and neck lift on December 17, 2019. Dr. Brissett, Regina, Andrea, Roxanne, Rachel, Annie and his entire staff have been amazing. Dr. Brissett is truly an artist in his work. When I met with Dr. Brissett, he listened to me and understood what I was concerned about. All of my expectations have been met and I am so grateful to him for fixing my problem which I was so self conscious about. I am so thankful to have found Dr. Brissett as he has all of the finest qualities you will find in a person and in someone who will be working on your face. I will forever be grateful to him."- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Jan 09, 2020
"Dr. Brissett took over my case in 2006 when I moved to Houston. In the 13+ years we have been together, he has remained a constant advocate for my continued care - which is residual paralysis/nerve damage & spasms due to 2 Bell's Palsy events in my early 30s. In that time, he and his team have always been consistent (and exceptional) in their delivery and care. Dr. Brissett was familiar with all facets of my issue/case and took the time to contact my previous surgeon. He is also one of the kindest people I have ever met who has a genuine heart in his care. From my first phone call (after an internet search for someone who understood my specific issue) to Andrea (Dr. B's Sr. Patient Care Coordinator) - who quickly got my on his schedule - I knew I was in great hands. She was knowledgeable about my issue and her welcoming tone let me know I had come to the right place - fast forward to 2019 and she is still with Dr. Brissett. Love his staff - especially Regina and Annie! (always there)"- D.S. / Healthgrades / Dec 23, 2019
"Dr Brissett does my general cosmetic maintenance and recently did a lower facelift. I have had friends look bruised and sore for weeks. I only had one very slight bruise on my neck because of his impeccable methods. The results are natural and I couldn’t be more pleased. A friend said “you look like you but rested and brighter.” The experience was made that much better by his staff - Regina and her kind and thorough assistance. Annie and her massages to help with swelling. Andrea always being a phone call away, making sure that you understand what is to take place and, generally, just being the cog that keeps things humming. A phenomenal doctor and a phenomenal staff behind him."- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Dec 21, 2019
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.
