Microneedling: A new skin care procedure

Fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, sun damage, large pores and uneven skin tone. This myriad of skin issues can effectively be dealt with a single dermaroller procedure. Microneedling is THE thing to do in skin care treatment right now. The main tool in use is a SkinPen, which causes controlled micro-injuries that automatically stimulate the skin’s natural wound healing process. Through this complex healing process, the micro-injuries trigger a release of cytokines and growth factors associated with it. This in turn, leads to the remodeling of collagen and elastin in the skin. Glowing skin is not just an adjective, but the result hundreds of patients have already experienced.

Redness, mild peeling and flaking are temporary side effects as part of this procedure, which typically disappear after the first two to three days. After a consultation, the duration and number of procedures are determined for the patient’s desired outcome. Most patients will require three to six treatments depending on their needs. Spaced approximately four weeks apart, however, many patients notice an improvement in the texture of their skin after only one treatment. We encourage everyone to visit us and experience the advantages of this minimally invasive procedure for themselves and restore their glow.
