If your skin looks dull, tired, wrinkled, or damaged, you may need a refresh. Thanks to the miracles of modern aesthetic medicine, we now offer microneedling in Houston which activates your body’s innate regenerative processes, healing your skin from within.
Heal Your Skin From Within
Your skin is a protective armor. It keeps you safe from harmful UV rays, direct sunlight, bacteria, injuries, viruses, environmental pollutants, and other toxins. When you’re young, your skin can regenerate and heal easily. But as you grow older, your body’s ability to regenerate and produce new collagen decreases. As your skin’s collagen reserves dip, you develop wrinkles and textural irregularities. Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation technique that allows us to catalyze your body’s innate regenerative properties.
SkinPen Microneedling Treats:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sagging skin
- Skin laxity
- Textural irregularities
- Age spots
- Sun damage
- Pigmentation problems
- Uneven skin tone
- Acne scarring
- Other facial scars
SkinPen Microneedling + PRP
Microneedling can be done on its own, but adding platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to the procedure can further improve results. PRP is made from a small sample of your own blood with a high concentration of platelets. The growth factors in platelets are responsible for most of your body’s healing activities, such as blood clot formation, blood vessel formation, and collagen production. When PRP is combined with SkinPen microneedling, it can boost the results of your treatment.
Recovery After SkinPen Microneedling
After your microneedling session, your skin will look slightly red and sunburnt. You may experience mild soreness, tenderness, and brushing, but these side effects dissipate within a few days. You can resume normal activities immediately, but you must avoid strenuous workouts and direct sunlight until the side effects dissipate completely.
The Results of SkinPen Microneedling
The results of your microneedling treatment will gradually appear over several weeks and months. As your body produces new collagen fibers, your skin will look smoother, softer, and more youthful. If you also opt for PRP, the results may appear slightly faster.
