Micro-Needleing

We are excited to offer an FDA approved, non-surgical treatment of fine lines, facial sagging, acne scarring and facial scars called, Microneedling. Microneedling activates the natural restorative processes of the body to transform blemished and damaged tissue into smoother, clearer, more vibrant skin.

Automated microneedling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for treating the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and improvement of the skin’s overall appearance.

 Microneedling is an effective treatment to naturally restore younger skin, dramatically improve unsightly scars and get rid of fine lines and wrinkles. A specialized device is applied to the skin, creating thousands of micro-channels or holes that stimulate collagen production.

Common Questions...

Which area are treated by the microneedeling process?

  •  Microneedeling can be used on any area of the body that has scarring or needing Collagen Induction Therapy .

What can I expect with a microneedeling treatment?  

  • A sterile cartridge containing 12 points surgical needles  is attached to the MicroPen. One of our trained and skilled Aestheticians will apply a thin layer of topical  gel to your skin and select the appropriate pen setting based on your unique needs.

  • Next, in a single motion, the pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered.

What can I expect after Microneedeling?

  • Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the  MicroPen setting used and the number of overlapping passes your skin care professional performs. On average, patients are red up to 2 to 4 days. Many patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours. 

  • Utilizing quality skin care products, provided by our MedSpa can help to speed up the healing process.

What will my Post  Care be after Microneedeling?

  • Use a gentle cleanser with tepid water for the first 48 hours following treatment. Gently pat dry.

  • Use only gentle skin care products for the first three days.

  • Avoid makeup, retinoids, glycolic acids, Vitamin C products and sunscreens for the rest of the day following your procedures.

  • Avoid excessive sun exposure for 24 hours. After that, apply sunscreen with SPF 50 daily.

  • Avoid swimming, saunas, jacuzzi,  strenuous activity and exercising during the first 24 hours following treatment.

How many treatments will I need?

  • Some patients only require a single treatment once per year to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart.

  • For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, or acne scars it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 6-week intervals.
