Microneedling is a minimally invasive method of inducing a controlled injury to the skin in order to promote new collagen and elastin production. Microneedling minimizes fine lines and wrinkles, and improves the appearance of acne and surgical scars, stretch marks, and pigmentation. Prior to treatment, a topical numbing agent is applied to the treatment area. We then use the FDA approved Skin Pen microneedling device which uses 24 tiny gauge needles to induce a micro injury into the skin’s dermal and epidermal junction.
The SkinPen Microneedling device can be used to treat the following:
All skin types can be safely treated, and most areas of the body are suitable for treatment unless your medical provider determines otherwise. A series of 3-6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart is recommended, but you may require more depending on your area of correction. Treatments are normally completed within 30-60 minutes.
Patients with one or more of the following conditions may NOT be treated:
After the procedure, the skin will be red similar to a sunburn. The patient will likely experience skin tightness, swelling, mild to moderate peeling and flaking, and sensitivity for the next 48 hours to 3 days. If the patient follows the post-care procedures correctly, the skin should completely heal within a week.
Microneedling in combination with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) can enhance the results. The two work synergistically together to speed up the healing process and produce collagen and elastin at a more rapid rate to improve fine lines and wrinkles, promote skin tightening, and reduce the appearance of pigmentation and acne scarring. PRP requires a simple blood draw, and then we place the blood into a centrifuge that will separate the platelet-rich plasma from your blood.
We carefully remove the platelet-rich plasma and apply it directly to your skin as we microneedle with the SkinPen Precision pen. The platelet-rich plasma is absorbed immediately into the tiny punctures in your skin. Adding PRP to your microneedling will supercharge your results, giving you more desired results faster. For maximum results, a series of treatments is recommended.
