WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles. We use state of the art physician grade technology called Skin Pen II. The fine needles of the device are used to minimally puncture the skin to create a controlled skin injury. Each puncture creates a channel that triggers the body to fill these microscopic wounds by producing new collagen and elastin.
We provide complimentary numbing with this procedure. Allow 1hr total for your appointment.
HOW DOES MICRONEEDLING WORK?
- Skin texture and firmness
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Crepey skin around eyes
- Reduction in scars
- Pore size
- And stretch marks.
Microneedling can be done on areas of skin that may not be suitable for peeling or laser resurfacing, such as around the eyes and mouth, hands, and chest. The procedure is well tolerated by patients with minimal downtime, and can be easily personalized by going deeper on some areas where skin damage requires a more aggressive approach.
The total procedure including numbing usually takes about an hour. Makeup shouldn’t be applied for 24-48 hours post procedure.
Usually, multiple treatments will be necessary for the best results. The number of needling sessions depends on the individual’s skin condition. Three or four treatments may be recommended for mild to moderate acne scarring, whereas deeper scars and stretch marks may require upward of five treatments. An interval of 4 to 6 weeks between treatments is typically recommended. Maintenance treatments at intervals of 6 to 12 months. When utilized for generalized skin resurfacing, products such as topical growth factors like TNS Essential Serum and anti-aging serums are better absorbed in the skin as an adjunct to treatment.
SkinMedica offers a line of products containing TNS, a compound which promotes skin healing and is a great addition to your post peel regimen. Remember, daily sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or greater is recommended to maintain your improved skin.
These are available at our office or online at www.juvly.myshopify.com.
