Imagine diminishing wrinkles and fine lines, and adding volume to the skin using the body’s own healing properties. Our board-certified aesthetician at Doctors Clinic Houston, uses microneedling to reduce the signs of aging on people living in Houston, Katy, and the surrounding communities, who want to look younger and revitalized.
How does Microneedling work?
Microneedling uses tiny needles on a handheld device that makes controlled micro-channels (tiny holes) in the skin where aging has begun to reveal itself. This causes the skin to react by stimulating collagen and elastin to send to the area to heal it. Once this happens, the collagen adds volume to the skin, and the elastin helps return the skin to its original state.
Microneedling does an excellent job at rejuvenating the skin to reveal a beautiful complexion. It also offers the following benefits:
- No scarring
- No risk of adverse reaction
- Safe for all skin types
- Little to no downtime or recovery
- Little to no discomfort or pain
- Effective on many skin imperfections
Is Microneedling for me?
Microneedling is ideal for those with acne scars, sun damage, fine lines or wrinkles, and other skin imperfections such as:
- Uneven skin tone
- Rough skin texture
- Large pores
- Under eye dark circles or puffiness
Preparation for microneedling involves avoiding retinoid treatments and treatments for auto-immune diseases for 24 hours prior to your treatment as well as direct sun exposure for that time. We can supply you with a numbing cream to apply an hour before your treatment. The only other step to prepare for microneedling is to wash your face and arrive for your treatment with no makeup.
Prior to the procedure, a numbing cream is applied to minimize or eliminate any discomfort. With microneedling, we create tiny channels in the skin to which the body responds by beginning the healing process. Collagen and elastin production are also stimulated to add volume to the skin and restore elasticity to it. The treatments are safe as we use sterile single-use needle tips with the device to prevent any cross-contamination.
