Microneedling in Houston & San Antonio, TX
DermaTouch RN offers minimally invasive treatments for men and women in Houston, San Antonio, Spring and Cypress, as well as the surrounding areas of Texas. We are the largest aesthetic practice in the Houston area, and all of our medical spa treatments are performed by a team of nurse practitioners, registered nurses, and aestheticians who receive continuing education to remain abreast of emerging treatments that benefit our patients. Microneedling is a technique that we use to induce collagen production that tightens the skin and reduces wrinkles.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, restores the collagen in your skin that is lost due to aging and sun damage. Collagen is important because it is the support structure of the skin that makes it more resilient against wrinkles.
Several types of collagen treatments have been developed over the years, including injections of bovine collagen. These methods proved to be less than ideal. Stimulating your own collagen is transforming minimally invasive cosmetic treatments and proving to be extremely successful. You can read our patient reviews to learn about this amazing cosmetic treatment.
How Much Does Microneedling Cost?
The average cost of microneedling is $250 per treatment. After we work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan during the consultation, we can provide more details about the cost. We offer free consultations for all non-surgical body contouring procedures. All other consultations cost $50, which we apply towards the cost of your microneedling treatment.
To provide excellence in care for men and women who want natural, minimally invasive treatments, we strive to keep our prices affordable. We also offer several financing options for which you may qualify, including CareCredit® and United Medical Credit®. You can apply online before your consultation and receive a decision within minutes.
Am I a Candidate for Microneedling?
Microneedling is safe for most skin types, tones and textures. If you are a man or woman looking for a treatment for your persistent acne and acne scarring, microneedling may be right for you. Microneedling stretch marks is a great treatment for women after childbirth. The treatment reduces the scar tissue to make the stretch marks less visible.
How is Microneedling Performed?
Microneedling is performed with the SkinPen® device that is equipped with a series of small hair-like needles. One of our nurse practitioners, registered nurses or aestheticians will press the device into the skin and penetrate the skin with the needles. The needles only go into the outer layer of skin, so you do not experience bleeding or discomfort after the treatment.
What is Recovery Like After Microneedling?
Microneedling requires no downtime. While you may experience some redness, tenderness and swelling to the skin, most of our patients return to their normal daily activities without restriction following their microneedling treatment.
How Long Will Microneedling Results Last?
The results of your microneedling treatment will depend on how your skin naturally ages. While the length of the results from your microneedling treatment will vary, they typically last up to one year.
