If you have noticed loose, sagging skin on your face, neck, or body and want a nonsurgical solution to help you look and feel your best, Dr. Cash offers both RF microneedling and traditional microneedling in Houston at her on-site medical spa. Microneedling can be used to tighten sagging skin, treat scars and stretch marks, and reduce stubborn pockets of fat that can contribute to the signs of aging.
Among the latest generation of nonsurgical facial rejuvenation treatments available, microneedling is one of the most popular. We use the SkinPen to perform this minimally invasive procedure that involves creating precise micro-injuries to the treatment area. This stimulates the growth of new collagen without causing the formation of scar tissue. SkinPen is an excellent treatment for:
Acne and acne scarring
Uneven skin texture
Little downtime is needed after a SkinPen procedure, which can be used for all skin colors and types. We can also adjust the depth that the tiny needles penetrate, so we can use it for the face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, and back.
SkinPen With Plasma
Combining SkinPen treatments with the use of plasma cells derived from your own blood enhances the results. The tiny channels in the skin created by the microneedling treatment can efficiently deliver plasma to the skin’s deeper layers. Plasma infusions include growth factors that promote the skin’s natural healing process and can give the skin a more refreshed and youthful appearance than what occurs after a stand-alone microneedling treatment.
The same growth factors that promote healing can also help stimulate hair growth, which is why we also recommend SkinPen with plasma infusions for hair restoration patients.

Morpheus8 RF microneedling combines the skin rejuvenation power of microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy to tighten and lift skin on the face and body.
The Morpheus8 device is a handheld applicator that has 24 microneedles that penetrate the skin and deliver radiofrequency (RF) energy into the dermis. By penetrating to the deeper layers of the skin, Morpheus8 is able to heat the dermis, causing your body to generate new collagen. This in turn helps improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, scars, and even break up and remove unwanted pockets of fat on the face, jowls, neck, and body.
There are 2 handpieces, one for treating smaller areas on the face and neck, and one for treating larger areas and reaching deeper tissue layers on the body with varying depths of RF energy to customize your treatment to suit your needs. Morpheus8 is safe for all skin types and the dual handpieces allow for faster, more effective treatment.
Using fractional technology, Morpheus8 RF miconeedling helps to remodel the tissue in the dermis and sub-dermis to generate new collagen to result in smoother, firmer skin on the face, neck, and body. On larger areas like the upper arms and legs, it can be used to break up fat and tighten skin, reducing the appearance of crepiness in aging skin.
Infini RF Microneedling
In some cases, we use Infini RF microneedling, an FDA-cleared treatment that improves skin tone and texture, treats fine lines and wrinkles, and helps fade acne scars. We also use both Morpheus8 and Infini to treat acne and control excessive underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis).
What does microneedling treat?
This treatment can be used to improve:
Fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck
Sagging skin on the neck
Scars on the face and body
Crepey skin on the arms and legs
Saddle bags on the outer thighs
Cottage cheese thighs
Does microneedling hurt?
In order to make the procedure as painless as possible, we apply a topical anesthetic to numb the skin before the treatment. Once your skin is prepped and numb, the microneedling handpiece is applied to the treatment area, and the microneedles puncture the skin. During a Morpheus8 RF microneedling treatment, the RF energy penetrates the tissue, causing a warming sensation with some pressure and tingling. The handpiece is moved across the skin over the entire treatment area, one section at a time. After treatment, you can expect to experience some redness and swelling in the treated area, but it should resolve within 2-3 days. We recommend not wearing makeup for the first 24 hours after treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
For best results, we recommend a series of 3-4 SkinPen or Morpheus8 RF microneedling treatments spaced 1 month apart for best results. You will see final results several weeks after treatment as new collagen is created, lifting and tightening the skin.
