Microneedling

Looking To Change Your Reflection?

Microneedling

Microneedling is an exciting new method to trigger your own body’s healing mechanism to increase collagen and elastin production.

Microneedling is an aesthetic procedure that creates many micro-channels in the skin. This controlled micro-injury creates minimal damage to the epidermis resulting in limited downtime. 

Inflammation

The inflammation process begins, which produces redness, mild swelling, and mild tenderness lasting for less than 24 hours.

Repair

Followed by the repair process, where the body begins to repair itself through the release of glycoproteins, growth factors, and the proliferation of fibroblasts.

Remodel

Finally, the skin tissue begins to remodel with the increase of surrounding collagen resulting in increased tissue integrity and thickening of the epidermal layer.

Heal

Studies have shown that these micro-channels are completely healed in less than 24 hours.

About the Procedure

Your face will be cleansed and a topical numbing cream will be applied and left on the skin for 15 minutes. Your face will be cleansed and prepped for the procedure.

Next the aesthetician will slide the SkinPen across the face using a product to enhance the glide of the pen.

The Skin Pen is equipped with single-use small, sterile needles that move up and down with the depth of penetration determined according to your needs. Our medical aesthetician will determine an appropriate number of passes to obtain the end point of pink-red skin. You will look like you have sunburn for the next 6 to 12 hours. You will be required to follow a skin regime that will be sent home with you.
