Microneedling is a top-requested anti-aging and skin-revitalizing service because it harnesses the power of your skin cells and triggers natural healing effects that are entirely long-lasting. If you’d like to find out how microneedling can enhance your skin’s health, contact Elite Dermatology, with locations in the Greater Houston Area. Simply click on the online scheduler and request a consultation with the office nearest you, or call any location to speak with a team member directly.


How does microneedling work?

Microneedling involves using a specialized tool that has dozens of micro-fine needles at the end to puncture your skin. As your dermatologist moves this tool over your skin and creates microwounds, blood rushes to the area. Along with this increase in blood flow comes oxygen, nutrients, and growth factors that stimulate new skin tissue and collagen development.

Elite Dermatology proudly offers SkinPen® microneedling, which is highly beneficial for collagen remodeling and production. The practice also provides Lutronic® RF (radiofrequency) microneedling treatments. 

A Lutronic RF treatment involves using a specialized tool that creates unique coagulation zones in the deepest layer of your skin. It combines traditional microneedling with radiofrequency energy for superior skin-tightening results.   

What are the benefits of microneedling?

Microneedling treatments from Elite Dermatology are beneficial for imperfections on your face, neck, and décolleté. However, your dermatologist can perform microneedling services on other areas of your body, too. Microneedling provides proven results for minimizing the appearance of:

  • Loose, sagging, or crepey skin
  • Acne, surgical, and injury scars
  • Sun damage and age spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Enlarged pores 
  • Stretch marks

Microneedling rejuvenation treatments from Elite Dermatology restore your youthful-looking skin shortly after your first session. For optimal anti-aging benefits though, you might need 2-4 monthly microneedling treatments. Once you achieve your skin goals, the dermatologists usually recommend coming in for maintenance microneedling treatments 1-2 times every year. 

Is there any downtime after microneedling?

Little-to-no downtime is to be expected, depending on your skin. If you have fair skin, for instance, the surge in blood flow after microneedling can leave you looking a little flushed. Don’t worry; this minor issue should resolve within a few hours.

Most microneedling clients from Elite Dermatology notice that their skin feels tighter and revitalized before they leave the office after microneedling. More dramatic results are typically visible after a week or two. 

To help your skin heal quickly and to enhance your microneedling results, the clinic offers clinical-grade skin care products, including SkinMedica®, for purchase. 

Elite Dermatology provides a host of personalized microneedling services to restore your youthful glow. Click on the online scheduling tool or call to book your microneedling session at any office location.
