About Microneedling

When home skin care products aren't effective, but you aren't ready for surgery, consider nonsurgical and minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatments like microneedling. Plastic surgeon Dr. S. Benjamin Albright is pleased to offer microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, at their office in Houston, TX. Microneedling uses many fine gauge needles to safely and effectively create micro-injuries in the needed areas of the skin. The micro-injuries created by the treatment trigger the body's natural production of collagen and elastin, two nutrients that contribute to the health and appearance of the skin. Schedule a consultation at Albright Plastic Surgery to learn more about the benefits of microneedling and ways to customize the treatment for your skin needs and goals.

Ideal Candidates

You may benefit from microneedling if you have mild to moderate skin concerns, like a rough texture or low elasticity. Microneedling treatments can also reduce the appearance of pores, stretch marks, and scars. You should be willing to wait to see the results of your microneedling treatment, since the collagen and elastin will need time to have an effect on the skin, but you will have natural-looking results and better overall skin health.

what to expect

Microneedling is performed in a treatment room in about 30 – 60 minutes with numbing cream or a local anesthesia if requested, but most patients feel mild or no discomfort. The skin being treated will be cleansed before the microneedling SkinPen® handpiece is passed evenly over the needed areas. After the microneedling is performed, a topical treatment like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or a vitamin-infused serum can be applied to the treated area for deeper penetration of the nutrients into the skin. A protective moisturizer will be applied along with sunscreen since your skin will be sensitive after the treatment.

anticipated results

You may have some swelling and redness for about a day after the treatment, but this should subside quickly on its own. It may take about 1 – 2 months as the collagen and elastin levels increase before you see visible improvements in the health and appearance of your skin. You should plan to get about 4 – 6 maintenance treatments every 4 – 6 weeks for optimal results and lasting skin health.
