Microneedling with the SkinPen at The Clinic for Plastic Surgery in Houston, Texas. Microneedling restores your skin from within due to the active collagen production being stimulated with a small device and micro-needles.
By creating tiny punctures in your skin, your body works to heal the surface cuts by boosting elastin and collagen production. This process is known as collagen induction therapy and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, and hyperpigmentation. Discover an effective cosmetic treatment making a difference in people’s skin at The Clinic for Plastic Surgery in Houston, Texas.
The SkinPen is a pen-like handheld device with 14 microneedles that creates micro-punctures in your skin. The repeated piercing of the skin stimulates your body to produce healing properties such as collagen and elastin. You can expect each treatment to last 30 minutes, but it depends on the size of your treatment area. Sessions are spaced three to six weeks apart for optimal results.
The SkinPen is an innovative and highly effective treatment. A host of appealing benefits include:
- Efficient 30-minute office treatment
- Safe to use on all skin types and tones
- Minimal downtime and minimal to no side effects
- Effectively treats hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, neck wrinkles, and surgical scars
SkinPen is rapidly becoming one of the most popular treatments we offer at our Houston Med Spa, and with good reason.
Our Houston Microneedling is a gentle and effective treatment. The SkinPen can be used safely on all skin colors and types. However, it is not recommended for pregnant women because the healing process stimulated by the treatment would require the vitamins and nutrients otherwise used to support the pregnancy.
Our Skinpen Microneedling is a safe and effective treatment. Once your face is cleansed, your aesthetic specialist will apply a numbing cream to keep you comfortable during your treatment. Then, a serum containing hyaluronic acid is applied before the SkinPen glides over the treatment area. The SkinPen creates tiny punctures in the skin to stimulate your body’s natural wound-healing process, thereby releasing growth factors and boosting collagen and elastin production.
Minimal downtime, minimal recovery. Immediately after your SkinPen procedure, you will experience a mild sunburn sensation, minor redness, tenderness, and swelling. To minimize these effects and soothe the skin after microneedling Houston patients will need to apply a special calming cream to the area over the next few days. Beyond these side effects, there isn’t any significant downtime, and the redness should completely disappear by the third day.
Visible improvement in days, not weeks.
You’ll be able to resume your normal daily activities immediately after your appointment, and you can begin concealing any redness with makeup after the second day. In a few days, you’ll start to see a visible improvement in the appearance of your skin, and your results will continue to progress over the following weeks. However, to maintain your beautiful new complexion, it is recommended that you continue to take care of your skin moving forward, preferably with a custom regimen provided by our aestheticians.
