What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a unique, minimally invasive technique that rejuvenates the skin. By creating thousands of tiny micro-injuries in the tissue, microneedling encourages the natural healing process, revving up the production of collagen and elastin, as well as establishing new blood vessels in the treatment area. As the building blocks of healthy, strong skin are increased, tissue becomes smoother, tighter, and more lifted. Fine lines, dark spots , and scarring are reduced, and sometimes eliminated. The result is glowing, luminous skin. Microneedling is safe and effective for almost any area, including the face, neck, arms, back, and hands.

What to Expect 

We perform our medical microneedling treatments using the SkinPen, from trusted Bellus Medical. Containing a set of tiny needles, which can be adjusted to a varying depth of .25 to 2.5 mm, each microneedling treatment is completely customizable, offering more consistent results than seen with traditional dermal rollers. As the SkinPen gently glides across the skin, using a small applicator, the sterile needles break the tissue’s upper-most surface, creating minor lesions. The predetermined depth of these punctures correlates to the desired correction. Once the skin’s natural barrier function has been crossed, a unique blend of topical ointments or creams can be added to the treatment process, getting the hydrating products to the deepest layers of tissue, providing optimal results. In one to two weeks, patients will see fresher, tighter, more beautiful skin.

The ideal microneedling patient will be in overall good health, with an understanding of the treatment process. Those with an active skin infection or who are pregnant may be asked to postpone their SkinPen session.

Prior to scheduling your medical microneedling appointment, a private consultation with one of our aestheticians will be arranged. At this time, the provider will perform a skin evaluation and discuss your aesthetic goals. The SkinPen treatment process will be explained, including the pros and cons of microneedling.
