Microneedling in Houston TX




Collagen Induction Therapy

Microneedling is an advanced minimally invasive treatment also known as Collagen Induction Therapy. This treatment is performed using a specialized Microneedling device to gently create micro-perforations of skin tissue causing the body to activate increased production of natural collagen, a substance that naturally nourishes and strengthens skin tissue. Over the next few weeks, your skin’s own activated collagen continues to gradually improve volume, firmness, and elasticity in the skin, while smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines, creating a more even skin tone, and imparting a more youthful appearance to the entire region.


Benefits of Microneedling

Microneedling treatments are rapidly gaining in popularity among both patients and doctors, because they provide a minimally invasive method of triggering a significant increase in the body’s natural collagen production, while protecting the outermost layer of skin and leaving it intact. Microneedling is a quick, effective, and inexpensive treatment that is safe, minimally invasive, and produces immediately visible results with added improvements continuing for several weeks after treatment.

Microneedling Treats a Variety of Conditions

Microneedling is a simple treatment that has been approved as safe and effective for treating the following list of skin conditions:

  • Acneic skin
  • Acne scars
  • Age spots
  • Alopecia (Hair Loss)
  • Discoloration, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone
  • Enlarged pores
  • Rosacea
  • Sagging skin
  • Scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Sun damage
  • Wrinkles, creases, and fine lines

The Microneedling Procedure

Microneedling is not a painful procedure, but it may produce an irritating “prickly” sensation for the duration of treatment. Luckily, the treatment usually takes under an hour to perform. Following treatment, you may notice temporary redness, soreness, and tenderness in the skin lasting for one or two hours, and this may sting similarly to the sensation of sunburn.

Following the procedure, you will have to carefully observe post-treatment instructions for optimal results. Men must put off shaving facial hair for several days until the skin heals completely after treatment. Although results may be immediately noticeable, increased improvement in the skin’s health and appearance will continue over the next several weeks, as new collagen production hydrates and nourishes thirsty skin cells, producing radiant, healthy new skin.

You may combine microneedling with Platelet Rich Plasma for even better result in a PRP Facial Procedure. sometimes referred to as Vampire Facial Procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions About Microneedling

What are the dos and donts after microneedling?

After microneedling, you should carefully follow all instructions. Avoid sun exposure as much as possible for about 48 hours after your procedure. Use skincare as directed, prioritizing SPF and moisturizing. Avoid products containing AHAs, BHAs, retinol (vitamin A), vitamin C, or other active skincare for about three days.

How long does it take to see results from microneedling?

Most patients will see microneedling results about four to six weeks after their treatment.

What happens if you microneedle too often?

Microneedling too frequently can result in inflammation or poor results. It is not generally recommended to undergo microneedling treatments more often than every 4-6 weeks.

When should you not do microneedling?

If you have an active infection, active acne, wound healing issue, or are prone to keloid scarring, microneedling is not a suitable treatment for you.

Is microneedling painful?

Microneedling is not painful, though you may feel some slight discomfort or a prickly sensation. Some slight soreness or tenderness in the treatment area after microneedling is also normal.

Is microneedling permanent?

How does microneedling work?
