So long, facial acne scars!
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling creates microscopic injuries to the skin and stimulates the body’s natural wound-healing process while minimizing cellular damage and encouraging collagen production.
Depending on your results, a series of 3 to 6 microneedling treatments may be recommended. There is minimal downtime with this procedure.
What is the cost?
$975/series of three (includes Alastin Regenerative Skin Nectar retail valued at $195)
How does microneedling work?
SkinPen creates thousands of microchannels that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process while minimizing cellular damage. This rejuvenates your skin from the inside out. The result is effective remodeling of scar tissue while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.
What’s the wound repair process?
There are three phases to the wound repair process:
Phase I: Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to cleanse the wound, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.
Phase II: Proliferation. The wound is re-built with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.
Phase III: Remodeling. The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.
When can I have a microneedling treatment?
SkinPen’s mechanical process is versatile and usable year-round.
Is microneedling safe for all skin types?
Clinically proven effective on all skin types, Fitzpatrick 1 – 6.
Is microneedling uncomfortable?
A light numbing cream may be used to minimize discomfort.
See if it’s right for you
- Most anyone can have the procedure performed as long as there are not any active infections, lesions, or any known wound healing problems. If you have active acne or tender acne cysts, microneedling is not recommended. It will irritate the area, make them more inflamed and potentially spread bacteria.
- If you are on Accutane SkinPen is not recommended.
- If you have received an injectable treatment such as botox, HA filler, Sculptra, etc it is recommended you wait two weeks before receiving any facial treatment service.
