Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling is one of the best ways to boost collagen levels without dermal fillers and injectables. Texas Dermatology offers microneedling for men and women in San Antonio, Kenedy, New Braunfels, and other areas of Texas.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that uses short, fine needles to penetrate the skin, causing “micro-injuries.” The purpose is to stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process that activates collagen and elastin production. Microneedling can be used to treat acne and other various scars, stretch marks, wrinkles, and large pores.
SkinPen® is the only FDA-cleared microneedling device that can help significantly improve acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, and skin texture.
How Much Does Microneedling Cost?
We can best discuss the cost of microneedling treatments after your consultation with Dr. Browning or one of our other dermatologists. If you are interested in our financing options, we do accept CareCredit®.
What Results Can I Expect from Microneedling?
SkinPen® is an excellent option for anti-aging treatments and scar reduction. Because of its abilities to increase collagen production, SkinPen® is most effective for:
- Acne scarring
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Minimize pore size
- Healthy and glowing complexion
- Tone, tighten, and strengthen the skin
Is There Downtime After a SkinPen® Treatment?
Patients should expect mild to moderate edema and erythema, similar to a mild sunburn. There may be some mild bruising in some patients as well. This will begin to minimize after three to seven days post treatment.
Can PRP Be Paired With a SkinPen® Treatment?
Adding platelet-rich plasma to a SkinPen® treatment is an excellent method for maximizing the skin’s wound healing process. Your skin will experience an ultimate rejuvenating treatment, as the PRP supplies the skin with proteins and other growth factors that speed up the recovery process.
