Micro-needling

Microneedling stimulates the skin's natural ability to repair itself.

Microneedling stimulates your skin's natural ability to produce new collagen and elastin for healthier, younger-looking skin. It accelerates this repair process by creating microscopic channels, which also allow products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin. New collagen and elastin production can reverse years of sun damage, improve acne scars and enhance the overall appearance of aging skin.

Microneedling is a medical grade, state-of-the-art device designed to reverse years of sun damage, improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and hyperpigmentation as well as enhance the overall appearance of aging skin. It allows for controlled induction of the skin's self-repair process by creating thousands of precise micro-injuries in the dermis, automatically triggering new collagen synthesis without causing scar tissue formation.

The variable depth (.25mm to 2.5mm) of the device and the cordless design provide significant versatility to create change in many areas of the body, including the face, neck, chest, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back. The actual procedure typically takes 30 minutes depending on the size and number of areas treated and the severity of damage on the skin and results in little to no downtime for the patient.

Who is a candidate?
Microneedling is extremely versatile and can be used on all parts of the body: face, neck, decollete, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back. This versatility makes microneedling especially helpful when addressing acne scars and stretch marks.

How is the procedure done?
A thin layer of serum is applied to the skin, and the appropriate treatment is selected for a particular type of skin. Then the pen is glided across the repair area in a gentle motion.

What does it feel like?
The unique design of the microneedling pen allows for individualized settings, which makes the treatment quite comfortable for most patients.

How long does the procedure take?
The procedure typically takes 30 minutes, depending upon the size of the area and the severity of skin damage. 

What is the downtime?
Immediately following the treatment, you will notice a healthy pink glow. Your skincare nurse will recommend products to aid your skin's natural healing process. Total healing time depends on the severity of the damaged skin and depth of the repair process required. On average, patients are pink for two to four days. Some patients heal completely in 24 hours. 

When will I see the results?
Most people notice healthier-looking skin immediately, and the natural repair process of the skin continues to progress over the course of several weeks. Dermal collagen remodeling takes place over time, and it will continue to improve for up to six months after your final treatment.

How many treatments will I need?
The course of treatment will be determined by your skincare nurse based upon your individual treatment goals and the health of your skin. Most patients receive a series of three treatments spaced about four weeks apart. For patients with more severe skin issues, additional sessions may be necessary.
