Beautiful Skin, New You: Microneedling using the revolutionary SkinPen®
Microneedling in Houston – How Does Microneedling Work?
Microneedling is the process of injecting additional collagen into skin that has been damaged by age, life, and the environment. The addition of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) will also boost your natural collagen and elastin production, using your own plasma to nourish your skin cells and reduce the effects of aging.
At BHRC Houston, we use SkinPen®, to achieve the best skin tightening and rejuvenation results. SkinPen® is the first microneedling device cleared by the U.S. FDA, to be clinically proven to safely and effectively treat facial acne scars for ages 22 and up.
Is SkinPen® Safe for Skin?
Yes. SkinPen’s patent-pending, single-use,sterile needle cartridge is surrounded by a proprietary BioSheath barrier to prevent cross contamination between procedures.
* SkinPen should not be used on patients who have active skin cancer in the treatment area(s); open wounds, sores, or irritated skin in the treatment area(s); an allergy to stainless steel or anesthetics; a hemorrhagic (bleeding) disorder or hemostatic (bleeding) dysfunction; are pregnant or nursing; or are currently taking drugs with the ingredient isotretinoin (such as Accutane).
Microneedling Results – How Long Does it Take to See Progress?
With prep time included, the complete microneedling procedure takes about 2 hours. You’ll start to see minor results after one session, but optimal results occur after 4 to 6 sessions, and sessions should be 4 to 6 weeks apart. * PRP procurement may require an additional session.

Where can I go for a microneedling facial near me?
Your local med spa is the place to go if you want a microneedling facial. At-home microneedling rollers like the Dermapen only get a fraction of the results and are exponentially more dangerous than going to a trained medical professional.
