Skin needling is a recently embraced technology in the US, however it has been performed successfully in Europe for years now. Advances over the years have led to the development of the Dermapen, which is one the most effective devices that can perform microneedling.
The concept is simple, we create micro wounds on the surface of the skin with small needles and the body responds by making collagen and new skin. Depending on the depth of the needle, we can help improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, stretch marks and even acne scarring.
We are often asked by our clients if microneedling can replace laser or photofacial treatments. Microneedling is a very different technology than lasers and it depends on both the patient's skin type and the condition being treated in order to determine if microneedling is the best option. Many of our clients begin with laser rejuvenation and then maintain their results with Microneedling using Dermapen. But it is best to start with a complementary consultation to discover if microneedling is the best treatment for you.
The treatments are very superficial and require nothing more than topical numbing creams. Our clients have found that the treatments feel like a strong microdermabrasion and the recovery time is just a couple days at the most. Many clients go back to work the same day with just a little extra makeup.
