Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation treatment that stimulates new healthy collagen to both improve and prevent future signs of aging. When performed in a series, microneedling treatments improve surface imperfections such as fine lines or wrinkles and can also be effective toward minimizing scars from acne or surgical incisions.

How does microneedling work?
At Basu Aesthetics + Plastic Surgery, we use the Dermapen device for microneedling treatment. During this procedure, tiny microneedles create microscopic channels into your skin, leaving the surface unaffected. This prompts your body to up collagen and elastin in the treated areas as part of a natural healing response.
There is no significant change in your appearance immediately following the treatment other than some mild redness or flushing and a sensation similar to getting a bit too much sun.
Following treatment, your body generates new healthy collagen from within. Because this treatment only targets fractions of the skin at a time, a series of 3-6 treatments is often recommended.

How many microneedling treatments will I need?
Start with a consultation to determine the best treatment plan. Because microneedling can address many concerns, the series recommended will be specific to you. For most, a series of 3 treatments are suggested. Because Dermapen has adjustable needle depths and speeds, we’re able to customize treatment for your unique needs.
How long is a microneedling treatment?
We typically schedule microneedling as a 45-minute appointment, however, this sometimes varies.
Does microneedling hurt?
Microneedling does not hurt, but we’ll prep your skin with a topical anesthetic prior to treatment to ensure your comfort. The needles are extremely fine and do not pierce the skin very deeply.
How long does it take to see microneedling results?
As your skin is healing from within, a smoother, healthier surface will appear over the coming weeks. With a series of 3 treatments scheduled a month apart, you will see progressive improvement.
Are there any alternatives to microneedling?
Microneedling offers an opportunity to improve and maintain healthy beautiful skin, without post-treatment swelling, peeling or prolonged redness. Treatment alternatives such as Morpheus 8 and fractional laser treatments are a consideration for those who want similar results. Basu Aesthetics + Plastic Surgery has treatment options available and during your consult, we will create the ideal treatment plan for you.
How soon can I get a microneedling treatment?
We are often able to take same-day appointments, especially if you are a repeat patient and call early in the day. New patients may require a little more time for consultation, but don’t hesitate to call 713-799-2278 and inquire about appointment availability as we are often able to schedule a microneedling treatment for the same day or the next day.
