RF Microneedling in Houston

Channel Your Inner Beauty

Beautiful Skin. No Downtime.

In Houston RF microneedling at Studio Essex can bring it back! This no-downtime treatment creates tiny channels in the skin, which then signal to your body to boost its collagen production, bringing you gorgeous, plump, youthful skin you’ll love!

What to Expect

Before, During, and After RF Microneedling in Houston

1. Attend a One-on-One Consultation.

When getting RF microneedling Houston practitioners begin with a one-on-one consultation. We use this time to truly get to know you—your goals, medical history, skin type, and tone, and to answer any questions you may have about the procedure.

2. Approve Your Treatment Plan.

Every patient at Studio Essex receives expert treatment advice from Houston RF Microneedling experts Dr. Downey and Dr. Bullocks on how to best address your concerns. We build a highly personalized treatment plan that may include a combination of both microneedling and other aesthetic treatments to achieve the best possible results.

3. Getting a Microneedling Treatment. 

Before you receive an RF microneedling Houston practitioners will thoroughly clean your skin and apply a topical anesthetic. We use the SkinPen® microneedling device (or Vivace for RF microneedling) to create tiny microwounds, or microchannels, in the skin. Using this device, we strategically and systematically work our way through the treatment area.

4. Follow Up.

Once completed, we can schedule you for follow-up RF microneedling treatments or any other complementary procedures!
