Looking Younger Just Got Easier
Looking younger just got easier with the newest generation of anti-aging treatments. Hollywood is raving about it. Patients can’t believe how easy and effective it is. Plus, it’s uniquely customized for you.
What is Micro-Needling?
Micro-Needling is the fastest, most convenient treatment available today for reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and acne scars. During the procedure, the MicroPen uses 12 tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin. This then signals the skin to repair by producing new collagen and elastin, thereby firming and lifting the skin naturally. The result? Smoother skin and softer wrinkles.
What Can Micro-Needling Be Used to Treat?
In addition to reducing fine lines and wrinkles, Micro-Needling has also shown positive effects on hyper-pigmentation, hypo-pigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks. It also gives the skin an overall fresher appearance and glow.
What Areas of the Body Can Be Treated with Micro-Needling?
Because it helps with more than just fine lines and wrinkles, pretty much every part of the body can benefit from Micro-Needling: face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.
How is Micro-Needling Done?
The MicroPen is made up of 12 single-use, sterile needles that glide across your skin in a single motion. Before beginning the treatment, we will apply a thin layer of gel to your skin and select the appropriate depth of treatment needed. The entire process usually only takes 15-30 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated, and you can go back to work or about your day immediately. On average, most patients will be red in the area treated for 2 to 4 days, but some are completely healed in as little as 24 hours.
What Does Micro-Needling Feel Like?
The MicroPen creates a sensation similar to light sandpaper being moved across the skin. Some areas will be more sensitive than others, but the combination of the gel and speed of the needles greatly reduces the amount of discomfort for patients.
How Fast Will I Notice Results from Micro-Needling?
Most people notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. However, because your skin is producing new collagen and elastin, results continue to improve for up to 6 months after treatment.
