SkinPen® Microneedling

Developed by Bellus Medical, SkinPen® is a minimally invasive microneedling method designed to treat a variety of aesthetic concerns by stimulating the skin’s natural healing response. Using this innovative technique, Dr. Kurkjian and his team can improve the appearance of skin affected by sun damage, aging, acne, and many other lifestyle and environmental elements—all with little to no downtime or discomfort. After treatment with SkinPen®, you can achieve a rejuvenated, more even skin tone and texture with lasting results.


What Skin Concerns Can SkinPen® Treat?

SkinPen® microneedling can be performed on all skin types and colors. Based on each patient’s specific needs, the procedure can help improve the appearance of the following skin concerns:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Acne scars
  • Overly large pores
  • Stretch marks
  • Dull skin tone

What Are the Benefits of Microneedling with SkinPen®?

The customizable SkinPen® treatment offers several unique benefits to women and men seeking to reduce signs of aging and enhance the overall health and quality of their skin. Key advantages of SkinPen® microneedling include:

  • A non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure
  • Ability to be used on all skin types
  • Ability to treat skin virtually anywhere on the body, including the face, neck, and décolletage
  • A short procedure with minimal to no downtime and a high degree of safety
  • Stimulation of natural collagen and elastin growth for long-lasting results

How Does the SkinPen® Treatment Work?

During treatment, the SkinPen® device is gently guided over the targeted area(s) as it creates microscopic channels in the surface layers of skin via tiny needles. This creation of small channels works to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin as part of the body’s natural healing process, eventually leading to a smoother, more toned and rejuvenated aesthetic on the surface of the skin.

The entire SkinPen® microneedling treatment typically takes less than an hour to complete, though this will depend on the number and extent of concerns being addressed. There may be some degree of temporary redness and/or swelling apparent initially, but these symptoms can generally be concealed by makeup, and most individuals are able to resume normal daily activities the same day. To minimize any potential discomfort throughout the treatment process, a local anesthetic can be employed in the targeted region(s) prior to the SkinPen® procedure.

What Results Can Be Expected?

Results of microneedling with SkinPen® generally start to become noticeable within a few days, and the effects of treatment should continue to improve in the following weeks as the growth of new collagen and elastin continues. The majority of patients need approximately three SkinPen® sessions to achieve an optimal outcome, though certain aesthetic concerns—such as acne scarring—may require additional treatments.

Ultimately, like every procedure offered at Kurkjian Aesthetics, SkinPen® microneedling can be individually tailored to meet your specific needs and cosmetic desires. No patient is simply a number to Dr. Kurkjian and our team, and we will do everything in our power to help you achieve your goals in the safest, most effective and efficient way possible.

BroadBand Light (BBL) Skin Treatment

BroadBand Light (BBL) therapy, also known as Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), utilizes light energy to enhance the look and health of the skin. During the procedure, our advanced BBL device is gently guided over the skin, delivering pulsed light energy to the targeted areas. Results are often seen right after treatment, with additional improvements typically visible as the skin continues to heal.

Dermaplaning is a minimally invasive treatment that can remove dead skin cells and eliminate short, fine hair — sometimes referred to as peach fuzz — through exfoliation. Additionally, the process can get rid of debris that may have built up on the skin’s surface. Dermaplaning can produce healthier and softer skin for a more refreshed and youthful appearance.

HALO® Laser Treatment

The state-of-the-art HALO® laser can address a variety of skin concerns caused by sun damage, aging, acne, and more. Capable of treating every skin type, this hybrid fractional laser treatment is highly customizable to each patient’s specific goals and needs. Popular treatment areas include the face, neck, décolletage, arms, hands, and legs. Using both non-ablative and ablative wavelengths, the HALO® laser can dramatically improve your skin texture and appearance, with less downtime and discomfort than other methods.

During the procedure, you will be given a topic anesthetic to numb the area. Once this has taken effect, the HALO® device will be guided across your skin, which delivers laser energy to the outer skin layer and deeper tissue underneath. This process signals the body’s natural healing process, leading to new collagen growth. The entire procedure takes about 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the extent of your needs.

As your skin begins to heal, the area may feel tight and have some degree of redness and swelling, comparable to that of a sunburn. The treated area will likely feel rough after a couple days, and over the course of four to five days, you can expect this to peel or flake off. Results can typically be seen within one week, and you can look forward to gradual improvement over time as new collagen is produced.

For best results, we typically recommend patients undergo one to two sessions. When incorporated into a regular treatment regimen, the HALO® laser can help slow or prevent the need for surgery later on.

PRP Therapy

Much like microneedling, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy takes advantage of the body’s natural healing capabilities to promote the growth of healthier cells. A small amount of blood is extracted; the platelet-rich plasma is separated; and it is then re-injected into the treatment area. The revolutionary procedure has been used to help repair injured muscles and provide rejuvenating cosmetic enhancements.


Your skin can experience changes in tone and texture due to numerous factors, including the natural aging process, lifestyle habits, and environmental causes. With the popular HydraFacial® treatment, our aesthetic professionals can exfoliate, cleanse, and enrich your skin for a revitalized appearance. This beneficial treatment helps to rid the skin of impurities, while simultaneously introducing antioxidants and nutrients, which leads to overall healthier-looking skin.

Thread Lift

The thread lift procedure is a non-surgical alternative to facelift and neck lift surgery that helps to lift sagging skin and stimulate collagen production. The process involves a medical-grade thread placed under the skin to gently pull it into the desired youthful position. Threads can also encourage the body’s natural healing response and create subtle improvements over time.

Chemical Peels

Exposure to the sun, aging or acne can leave your skin looking older than your age. This appearance is often a result of fine lines, brown spots, red spots, wrinkles, and poor skin texture. A chemical peel is a skin resurfacing technique that chemically removes layers of skin to improve these dermatologic blemishes. At our practice, we use chemical peels to make your skin look smoother and younger.

Dr. Kurkjian personally evaluates and performs every chemical peel for every patient.

We offer chemical peels for every skin type with varying levels of depth depending on your personal cosmetic goals and recovery time expectations. Having had extensive training with some of the world’s experts on skin care and skin resurfacing, Dr. Kurkjian is able to offer his Fort Worth patients a unique perspective.

How Chemical Peels Work

Chemical peel treatments involve the use of a chemical solution to smooth the texture of your skin by removing the damaged outer layers. This helps to improve:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles caused by natural aging
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Acne and mild scars
  • Freckles, age spots, irregular skin pigmentation, and dark patches
  • Rough and scaly skin patches

Dr. Kurkjian is a plastic surgeon with special training in aesthetic procedures and provides chemical peel treatments to improve the skin of the face.

Your Consultation and Treatment

During your first visit, Dr Kurkjian will discuss your cosmetic goals and evaluate your skin complexion, texture, and facial soft tissues.

At our practice, we offer different chemical peel options which vary in effect and downtime. During your consultation, Dr. Kurkjian will be able to guide you toward the chemical peel that best suits your lifestyle.

Depending on the depth of chemical peel you choose, your recovery can vary widely. With our lightest peel, you can expect little to no redness which will resolve within 1 day. With our strongest chemical peel, you can expect to see skin peeling for 7-10 days and redness for up to 6 weeks. The effect of the chemical peel is usually proportionate with the downtime.

Dr. Kurkjian uses a wide range of chemical peels such as:

  • Glycolic peels
  • Salicylic Acid, Lactic Acid, Citric Acid peels
  • Jessner’s peels
  • 25% Trichloroacetic acid peels
  • 35% Trichloroacetic acid peels
  • Combination peels – using different combinations of the above.
