Many of our patients achieve smoother, refreshed skin with SkinPen microneedling at Houston Dermatology Specialists in Cypress, TX. Dr. Downing’s highly skilled team performs this collagen-inducing treatment to address fine lines, laxity, uneven texture, and more.
How does SkinPen microneedling work?
Microneedling creates micro-injuries to the skin’s surface, triggering the body’s natural healing response. This stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins essential for healthy, firm skin.
Microneedling is beneficial for treating:
- Fine lines
- Scars, including acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Uneven texture
SkinPen Plus Treatments
For patients who want even better results from their SkinPen microneedling treatments, we offer SkinPen Plus, a treatment that combines the effectiveness of SkinPen with cells derived from your own blood. This skin rejuvenation treatment works to smooth the appearance of lines and wrinkles, improving the appearance of your skin without downtime, enhancing the skin lifting and tightening effects of microneedling.
First, we draw a small amount of blood. We then separate the platelets from the blood, creating a serum that is rich in platelets to enhance cellular regrowth. Second, we apply the serum to the area to be treated then use the SkinPen microneedling device to treat the skin. As the SkinPen works, it creates channels in the skin where the platelets can penetrate the skin and reach the deeper layers. The natural growth factors in the platelets help your skin generate additional collagen and elastin, resulting in smoother, tighter skin. We may apply additional serum to the treated area after the microneedling procedure as well.

What is it like to have a SkinPen microneedling treatment done?
A topical anesthetic is applied to minimize discomfort. During the treatment, the FDA-approved device is passed over your skin, creating numerous tiny punctures. Your treatment may be completed with the application of a topical skin serum or product, which will penetrate more deeply into the new channels in your skin.
SkinPen Plus treatments are also painless, but we do use a needle to draw a small amount of blood before performing the microneedling treatment.
What is recovery like after a SkinPen microneedling treatment?
Most people experience some redness and swelling, similar to a sunburn, for 2 to 4 days following treatment. You may need at least 3 sessions spaced a month apart to see the best results, which will develop gradually over the next few weeks.
