Collagen Induction Therapy in San Antonio

Microneedling is quickly becoming a favorite skincare and anti-aging treatment for men and women wanting maximum results with minimal downtime. This minimally invasive treatment works to boost your skin’s natural collagen production to heal it from the inside-out, correcting a wide variety of concerns from lines and wrinkles, to poor skin elasticity and acne scars.

At Eterna Cosmetic Surgery, we offer our San Antonio patients a multi-level approach to microneedling to further enhance results and provide long-lasting skin benefits. Dr. Hernandez has handpicked a series of products from Bellus Medical™, proven to help men and women achieve their skincare goals. Using a combination of SkinPen®, ProGen™ PRP, and SkinFuse™, Dr. Hernandez can help to create a personalized microneedling treatment plan designed to put an end to your specific skin concerns.

Our multi-level microneedling approach can help treat:

Why is collagen so important?

We often hear about it in beauty product commercials and read about it in articles, but what exactly is collagen? Abundantly found in youthful skin, collagen is a structural protein that keeps the skin looking firm, full, and healthy. As you get older, your skin’s natural collagen production slows down and you begin losing a little bit more each day, resulting in texture imperfections, looser skin, a loss of volume, and fine lines and wrinkles. Put simply, the more collagen your body produces, the younger, brighter, and healthier your skin will look.

How does microneedling work?

Dr. Hernandez will begin your microneedling treatment with a personalized consultation where she will listen to your goals and carefully observe the condition of your skin. She will help make recommendations based on what is discussed, and design a treatment plan based on your unique situation. Microneedling treatments can be performed on any area of skin, including the full face and body—Dr. Hernandez can even treat the more difficult areas such as the crease of the nose and beneath the eyes.


SkinPen is the microneedling device used at our San Antonio cosmetic surgery practice. Dr. Hernandez will use the pen-like device—equipped with 12 microneedles at the tip—to gently brush across the target area of skin. This process of microneedling creates tiny, microscopic wounds in the skin’s surface, stimulating your skin’s natural healing response and boosting collagen production. Dr. Hernandez can adjust the speed and depth of your SkinPen microneedling treatment based on the treatment site and your specific skin concerns.

This non-surgical treatment is performed from the privacy and comfort of our own office—no need to drive to a separate location for your treatment and you can get right back to your normal routine once complete.

ProGen™ PRP

PRP, or platelet rich plasma, is a treatment in which your own red blood cells are used to encourage cell-renewal and provide skincare benefits such as improved elasticity and increased hydration. Dr. Hernandez combines ProGen PRP treatments with microneedling for better absorption and maximum benefits. This is a highly effective follow-up treatment to SkinPen and also requires no downtime or recovery.


SkinFuse is another great complement to SkinPen microneedling. This easy-to-use skincare regimen was formulated specifically to work in combination with microneedling treatments to provide men and women with long-lasting skin benefits. This at-home skincare regimen helps to provide your skin cells with the essential nutrients needed to achieve maximum results from your microneedling treatment and boost collagen production for youthful skin that lasts.

Why choose microneedling?

There are many reasons why Dr. Hernandez’s San Antonio patients trust microneedling as a key component of their professional skincare routine. Her multi-level approach not only provides maximum benefits without the recovery or downtime of other treatments, but it can be fully customized to the needs of each individual patient. This combination of SkinPen, ProGen PRP, and SkinFuse can help men and women maintain youthful skin for years to come, all without missing time from their busy schedules.
