What is microneedling?
Considered to be one of the quickest and easiest ways to get younger-looking skin, microneedling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenating procedure. It uses hair-thin medical grade sterile needles to cause tiny punctures in your skin, prompting a collagen-stimulating healing process that corrects flaws and improves skin quality.
These selective micro injuries cause the release of the body’s own growth factors, which are transported to the skin’s surface. As a result, the skin is naturally stimulated to regenerate, and new collagen and elastin are formed to give the skin more firmness and elasticity.
Who Is A Candidate?
Most patients are candidates for microneedling. We offer free consultations and one of our health care professionals will assess if microneedling is the right treatment for you.
What Does It Feel Like?
While some areas are more sensitive than others, most people generally compare the sensation to sandpaper being moved across the skin. We provide topical anesthetic prior to treating to minimize discomfort.
How Long Does The Procedure Take?
Once the treatment begins, it typically takes 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated.
What Will My Skin Look Like Afterward?
Some minor pinpoint bleeding is to be expected immediately post-treatment followed by redness which typically subsides 1-3 days, depending on the level of the treatment.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
For best results, we recommend starting with a series of 3 treatments and having them performed at 4-6 week intervals.
When Will I See Results?
One of the exciting features of the MicroPen EVO is the immediate “glow” patients can see as soon as the procedure is finished. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several weeks. Results continue to improve up to six months after the treatment.
