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.
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.
"Dr. Albright has a kind, personable bedside manner and his staff are wonderful. He listened to my wants, concerns and needs and help me to make the best decision for me. He even took an extra hour answering all my questions to eliminate any fears I had. I couldn't be happier with the results and I highly recommend him to all my friends."- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Feb 18, 2020
"Dr. Allbright is an intelligent, caring, and fantastic doctor! He genuinely listens to your concerns and he is very willing to work with you and whatever your needs are. I have heard a few people say that Dr. Allbright is young, So they are concerned with his skill level. My comment to that, Dr. Allbright was trained in the best technology possible and he is super amazing in his abilities. I would prefer Dr. Allbright to have me in surgery for 13 hours rather than someone that is twice his age. My results have been completely amazing and although my original reason to see him was because of a diagnosis of breast cancer, he has truly helped to enhance my life and has made the best of a bad situation. His entire staff is extremely knowledgeable and they are so very caring. Anytime I called with a question, One of his staff got with me very quickly. I cannot rave enough about this amazing person. He truly treats you as an individual and not at all as just another client. He actually remembers things from your last visit. He is one of a kind!!!"- J.L. / Google / Aug 02, 2019

"Awesome Experience - Could not be happier with Dr. Albright and his staff. His nurse, Carrie, does an excellent job explaining everything and setting everything up. She is also available by phone or e-mail at all times and responds quickly. Dr. Albright is just incredible. He is personable, kind, patient and spends a great deal of time with you to be sure that you understand everything and know what to expect. He was able to take a very uncomfortable situation and put me at ease with his professionalism and kindness. I have no regrets in having my procedure done or in my choice in a plastic surgeon."- Anonymous / Vitals / Aug 24, 2016
Plan Your Procedure
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.
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.
