What is microneedling?
It’s a procedure involving a device with extremely fine needles that produces very tiny punctures in the skin. This triggers the body to fill these microscopically small punctures by producing new collagens and elastin, which are natural proteins that keep skin elastic, plump and youthful.
Does it hurt?
These controlled punctures are extremely small and any discomfort is minimal and can be reduced with some topical numbing cream. Microneedling is performed in the office and there is minimal downtime after treatment. If any redness occurs immediately after micro-needling, it usually subsides in 48 hours.
What are the benefits?
In addition to helping firm facial contours, microneedling may improve skin texture and firmness, acne scarring and reduce wrinkles and pore size. We are using it in conjunction with cosmetic surgical procedures to reduce scarring and improve outcomes, too. It is cost-effective and can be used to improve skin on areas that may not be suitable for peeling or laser resurfacing such as around the eyes and mouth, hands, and chest.
How long does it take to see results?
Improvements in skin texture may be seen within a few weeks. The number of microneedling sessions a person needs to see significant improvement depends on individual skin condition and needs. Three to five treatments with a period of three to six weeks between treatments is usually recommended.
Is microneedling an effective treatment for acne scars?
Microneedling does improve acne scars. Depending on the severity of the scars, several treatments are going to be needed in order to see an improvement. Without seeing a picture, it is not possible to say how many treatments will be needed, but it is not unusual to need 4-6 treatments in order to see an appreciable difference.
Does microneeding treat surgical scars?
A surgical scar is a type of injury to flesh caused by surgery, usually an incision, that requires the modification of all layers. Because a surgeon cannot control all the factors that determine the appearance of a scar, treatment after the surgical area has properly healed is sometimes necessary.
The challenge with surgical scars lie within the matrix of all the forms or categories of scars involving hypertrophic and keloid scars and pigmentation flaws. These scars thicken over time. Scar therapy has been historically limited. The Dermapen’s unique vertical stamping and depth control, up to 2.5mm, helps alleviate the appearance of surgical scars and can be a better modality to other methods or rollering. With surgical steel integrity, the robust nature of the automated needle tip (12 needles total and sized at thirty-three gauge) penetrate difficult scar tissue, dramatically improving appearance, texture, elasticity, size and mobility.
Microneedling Surgical Scar Regimen
Scars have altered physiology compared to other skin conditions. Multiple microneedling treatments are recommended and may vary depending on the severity and type of surgical scar. A personal consultation will advise about the best course of action for your particular surgery scars.
There may be additional pricing for surgical scar theraphy.
Are there options to enhance the effectiveness of microneedling treatments?
All microneedling procedures include hydrolonic acid. Many choose to enhance the procedure and include a peel or microdermaprasion. There will be additional pricing for additional spa services added to your microneedling procedure.
