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.
"Exceptional, Professional and Stress Free - I was recommended to Anthony Brissett for a Cyst removal. From the moment I walked through the door for consultation, through pre-surgery, post-op and follow-ups, Dr. Brissett and his staff were the most courteous and pleasant people helping me through the procedure and any questions that I had. I would highly recommend his services to anyone knowing that they would have the best professional help for any situation that they are experiencing. I am very pleased with the outcome of my surgery. He is truly a blessing to his staff, patients and the medical field."- H. / RealSelf / Dec 04, 2019

- 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.
