Microneedling is a non-invasive, in office procedure used for skin rejuvenation. The most common areas treated are the face, neck and décolletage areas. Our microneedling device is called a Skin Pen. A microneedling procedure helps to soften facial wrinkles, minimize pores, fade scars, and lightens brown spots. It can leave our skin looking younger, brighter and tighter. A microneedling pen is equipped with very fine, vibrating needles that pierce the skin at a predetermined depth and speed. The treatment stimulates collagen and elastin in our tissue to rebuild the dermis or break up scar tissue. It can be used on all skin types.
A topical anesthetic cream is used prior to the treatment to reduce any discomfort during the procedure. The procedure takes 30 minutes to one hour depending on how large the treatment area is. There is minimal downtime. Your skin may look pink or slightly red for a few hours after the treatment. If any redness persists for the next few days, it can be easily hidden with make up. You may resume normal activities right away.
Lighter treatments show results such as radiant, tighter skin with smaller pores almost immediately. Deeper treatments which are used to treat scar tissue will take up to 3-6 months for full effect.
