Microneedling

Model ImageMicroneedling is the newest non-invasive, in-office procedure for facial rejuvenation. It is not a laser, but is a separate treatment that should be incorporated routinely into a person’s skin care regimen. Microneedling can soften facial wrinkles, minimizes pores, fade scars and brown spots and leave you with brighter, tighter and younger skin.

Microneedling is equipped with fine vibrating needles that pierce the skin at pre-determined speed and depth. The settings are adjustable and are customized for the specific goal of the treatment. In other words, we can lightly prick the top of the skin to help infuse topical products…or go a little deeper stimulate collagen and elastin to re-build the dermis or to break up scar tissue.

The small size of the handpiece means we can easily maneuver it around facial contours and delicate features.

What we love about this technology is how versatile it is. Microneedling can be used on all skin types to improve:

  • Enlarged pores
  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Acne scarring
  • Surgical scars
  • Loose, sagging skin

What Should I Expect During the Treatment?

  • It usually takes 5-15 minutes per treated area; up to an hour for the whole face.
  • Minimal downtime (Redness can be hidden with make up and you can resume normal activity right away).
  • Anesthetic cream is used prior to treatment; there is minimal discomfort.

How Quickly Will I See Results?

  • Lighter treatments show results right away, with more radiant, tighter skin and smaller pores.
  • Deeper procedures targeted at scar removal will take three to six months.
  • A series of treatments gives best results.
