When home skin products aren't effective, but you aren't ready for surgery, learn more about nonsurgical treatments to rejuvenate the skin, like microneedling. The team at GLO Laser & Med Spa is pleased to offer microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) at our office in Houston, TX.
Our practice has the latest in microneedling technology, including the ProCell microneedling pen, which uses several fine-gauge needles to safely and effectively create micro-injuries in the needed areas of the skin. These micro-injuries trigger the body's natural production of collagen and elastin, two nutrients that improve the appearance and health of your skin. Easily combined with other skin treatments, such as serums or PRP (platelet-rich plasma), microneedling can help reduce pores, scars, and stretch marks. Schedule a consultation at GLO Laser & Med Spa to hear more about the benefits of microneedling and ways to customize treatment for your needs and goals.

You may benefit from microneedling if you have slight to moderate skin issues, such as a decrease in elasticity or rough skin texture. Microneedling treatments can also minimize the appearance of scars, pores, and stretch marks. You must be willing to wait a while before seeing improvements from your microneedling treatment since the collagen and elastin will need some time to affect the skin, but you will develop natural-looking results and gain healthier overall skin.
Treatment with the ProCell microneedling pen is completed in a private treatment room in about 30 – 60 minutes with numbing cream or local anesthesia if preferred, but patients generally report mild or no discomfort. The skin being treated will be cleansed before the microneedling handpiece is passed evenly over. After the microneedling is complete, a topical treatment, like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or a vitamin-infused serum, can be applied for deeper penetration of the nutrients into the skin. A moisturizer will be massaged in along with UV protection since your skin will be sensitive after the treatment.
What to Expect
After your treatment, you can experience mild swelling and redness for about a day, but this should fade naturally. 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 complexion. You should plan to get a microneedling treatment every 4 – 6 weeks for ideal results and long-lasting skin health.
