Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that helps generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin, as well as reduce the appearance of acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles. We are pleased to offer microneedling using the SkinPen II—an FDA-approved needling device that is clinically proven for all skin types.
Body. Heal Thyself!
Collagen —an essential element of connective tissue—is responsible for skin firmness and durability. Over time, we experience loss of it, which leads to untoned, loose skin and deepening of wrinkles, ultimately giving you a less youthful look.
During microneedling, the SkinPen II penetrates the superficial layer of your skin. Your body responds to the micro-injuries by stimulating your body’s natural wound healing process while minimizing cellular damage. The result is effective remodeling of tissue, yet keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.
The result is collagen production over the next month or so. And, when we add PRP (platelet rich plasma) to microneedling, your body regenerates more robustly giving you a more effective outcome.
About the Microneedling Process
- It’s a very comfortable in-office procedure. We start by applying a topical numbing agent to the treatment area.
- The entire treatment takes less than one hour.
- During Microneedling, most patients report feeling only a slight scratching sensation.
- Immediately following your treatment, your skin will appear slightly or moderately pink to red, similar to a mild sunburn.
