FDA microneedling approved with no cross contamination.
While no one likes the look of wrinkles and fine lines, this is unfortunately a natural part of the aging process; however, there are certain factors that contribute to premature aging that can make skin appear older than it actually is. For those looking to reduce the appearance of fine lines, scars and wrinkles without invasive or extensive cosmetic treatments, micro needling could be an ideal option for you and your cosmetic needs.
About Micro Needling
Micro Needling is a device that uses a small series of needles to penetrate the outer layers of the skin to trigger a natural healing response. By creating micro tears in the skin, this cosmetic treatment stimulates the production of collagen to tighten and increase elasticity in the skin while also reducing the appearance of imperfections like scars and wrinkles. Microneedling is most effective against fine lines and wrinkles found around the eyes and upper lip region.
Micro Needling Procedure
This treatment is performed as an outpatient procedure and can be conducted on any area of the body. After thoroughly cleaning the skin and applying a topical anesthesia to reduce procedural discomfort, we will then move the pen-like device across the surface of your skin. During your procedure you may experience some minimal tingling or warming.
Your skin may appear slightly red for the first day or two after treatment. Some patients experience minimal flaking a few days prior; however, since the skin remains intact after treatment, recovery time is minimal.
For patients looking to treat certain areas of the skin (e.g., around the eyes, mouth or chest) for which laser resurfacing or chemical peels may not be ideal, micro needling is able to provide an inexpensive way to treat wrinkles and scars in these more sensitive areas of the body.
Micro Needling Results
Results are most visible a few days after micro needling, but it can take several weeks to see the full results. Since this treatment is minimally invasive and doesn’t require much downtime, patients can opt for micro needling sessions every month. In fact, we often recommend four to six treatments, depending on your desired effect.
