Microneedling is a non-invasive skin resurfacing treatment that enhances the skin’s tone and pore size, resurfaces scars, and decreases fine lines and wrinkles. It uses a high-tech device with tiny, fast-moving needles and makes microchannels or small holes in the treatment area. This reduces acne scars, stretch marks, sunspots, cellulite, lines, and wrinkles. It’s beneficial for all skin types and can be performed on the face, neck, décolleté, or body. The procedure stimulates new collagen, growth factors, and elastin to rejuvenate the skin. This can be paired with a Plasma or Aqua Gold renewal application that contains powerful growth factors and is used to strengthen the skin, providing you with skin renewal and next-level skin resurfacing.
The pros of this treatment include:
- Minimally invasive and recovery period
- Highly effective delivery mechanism for natural growth factors
- 1600 micro-injuries per second
SkinPen Microneedling causes steady micro-injuries that facilitate your body’s natural wound healing process while minimizing cellular harm. This results in adequate scar tissue remodeling while maintaining the skin’s overall structure unharmed. During the procedure, mixed micro-perforations are administered, with or without growth factors, along the targeted area to stimulate the body’s natural wound healing phases, allowing the skin to recover, regenerate, and rejuvenate. This causes new collagen, elastin, and fibrin, to develop within the most profound layer of the skin. We recommend four sessions every three to five weeks for optimal results, then quarterly maintenance going forward.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling uses a device to make micro-injuries in the skin. The micro-injuries can only be seen with a microscope, stimulating a healing response resulting in collagen and elastin production. This will give you a youthful appearance.
Who can benefit from Microneedling?
You’re an excellent candidate if you would like to improve fine lines, wrinkles, or acne with a non-invasive procedure with little downtime.
When will I see the results?
You’ll get refreshed skin within one to two weeks after treatment. We recommend at least four to six monthly treatments for optimal results.
Are there side effects?
Yes. A sunburned appearance, redness, dryness, and tightness may occur and subsides within a few days.
