Microneedling is a form of Collagen Induction Therapy. It has been found to improve the appearance and quality of skin. Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure creating tiny punctures in the skin using sterile micro-fine needles. This triggers the body’s wound healing process, stimulating your skin to naturally produce collagen and elastin.
While there are many products and services available for microneedling, we chose SkinPen® because it is the only U.S. engineered and manufactured microneedling device on the market with patent-pending, single use, sterile needle cartridges. The safety and superiority of this device gives peace of mind to patients and is a system trusted by practitioners.
As we age, the natural architecture of our skin deteriorates, which leads to fine lines, wrinkles, large pores and uneven skin texture. Microneedling is a way to address these signs of aging at the cellular level because it comfortably creates micro-injuries in the skin to trigger the body’s natural wound healing process. Skin remodeling results in the formation of collagen and elastin, the two wonderful proteins predominately responsible for the skins’ structure; leading to beautiful, healthier looking skin.
Microneedling has been found to be effective on all body parts, including face, neck, and décolleté, and all skin types.
We can confidently say it’s not as painful as you may think. Your skin will be cleansed and a compounded topical anesthetic will be applied. This effectively makes the procedure a comfortable experience. The procedure is personalized to your skin type and concerns. Patients can expect mild post-procedure effects similar to a mild-to-moderate sunburn. As with all procedures in our office, we offer complimentary cosmetic consultations and individualized treatment plans.
