Microneedling

ABOUT MICRONEEDLING

Microneedling uses controlled microinjuries to induce open channels which triggers your body’s innate response to injury and promotes a positive inflammation, proliferation (skin cell turn over) and remodeling process, to improve your skin texture, quality and brilliance. The remodeling process with microneedling creates new collagen without fibrosis. Because of this mechanism, we are able to break up old acne scars, decrease hyperpigmentation, soften lines, smooth skin texture and tighten enlarged pores! We use the only FDA approved microneedling pen on the market, called SkinPen®.

Ideal Candidates

Microneedling is a great option for all skin types, light and dark. However, if you are prone to keloiding we do have a trial protocol in place, to be done prior to your first treatment.

What to Expect

We use topical numbing medication for patient comfort and provide a serum formulated and studied by Bellus Medical in conjunction with the SkinPen® device, to take home with you to use for the first 24 hours following your procedure. The downtime is minimal and most can return to their normal routine the day after treatment. We are able to treat the face, neck, décolletage and inner arms! Pricing varies and is dependent upon the treatment area(s) selected.

Anticipated Results

The initial skin tightening and pore reduction can be seen immediately after treatment. Collagen production and cellular turnover are accelerated and it will take time to produce new collagen. As such, your results will emerge gradually over several weeks. There may still be some redness and other signs of minor irritation. Most clients need between two to four sessions spaced about one month apart for optimal results and then should come back for a follow up treatment every six months.

RESULTS

We recommend based on FDA standards, an initial series of 3 treatments, spaced 30 days apart. Maintenance treatments may be desired and results may vary.
