Micro-Needling

treats: scars, acne, pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles

Micro-needling uses a hand held device to gently penetrate the skin using numerous tiny needles to stimulate the natural ability of your body to produce elastin and collagen to help stimulate the natural healing effect on your skin. The micro holes created by this procedure can help to improve scars, acne, pigmentation, as well as fine lines and wrinkles.

How micro-needling works:

When you come in for your Needling treatment your provider start by having you fill out paper work that addresses health history and skin care concerns. During your consultation, a skin care analysis will be performed to be certain you are a good candidate for treatment as well as discuss the pros and cons of treatment. We encourage you to ask as many questions as you can at this time so you have a clear understanding of your treatment.

Once you and provider have decided to proceed with treatment your skin will be prepped and a numbing agent will be applied to your skin for 15-20 minutes. During this time your provider will explain the procedure again to make sure all of your questions have been answered. After you have been numbed your treatment will begin. Passes will be made over the treatment area by the micro needling device. You may feel slight pulsating by the device. Treatments usually takes about 20-30 minutes. We recommend you plan on a total treatment time of an hour with a consultation and numbing. A series of 3-5 treatments are performed about a month apart for optimal results. Treatments are relatively comfortable as your technician can adjust the depth of the treatment for best results.

Vampire Facial:

Micro needling can also combined with Plasma Rich Platelets (PRP) to enhance the benefit of your needling treatment, this is what is known as the Vampire Facial. This service has your provider draw your blood, pull out the plasma and micro needle it back into your skin. Sound scary? When considering treatment, we highly recommend having a consultation to discuss treatment options and find a plan that best suits your individual skin care needs.
