Following your complimentary skin analysis and a review of your skin care goals, our esthetician Jennifer may recommend Micro-Needling skin care treatments with the new MDerma by Dermapen.
In addition to treating wrinkles and fine lines and benign pigmentation, this new treatment is also helpful for patients who seek a non-surgical aesthetic procedure reducing signs of aging like:
- “crow’s feet”
- Sun damage
- skin discoloration and texture changes
- sagging skin
- stretch marks
Here are some “Before and After” photos of micro-needling patients, courtesy of Dermapen, showing wrinkle reduction, hyperpigmentation and age spot reduction, acne scar reduction, and stretch mark reduction.
The actual micro-needling procedure involves applying very fine needles, adjustable as needed to an area of the top layer of skin. The tiny puncture wounds are not readily visible, and encourage the body’s innate ability to repair itself. This stimulation of the skin also results in increased collagen and elastin, giving skin a younger, fresher look with little or no downtime. Micro-Needling skin care treatments can revitalize and refresh all skin types.
Micro-needling skin care can be applied to any area of the skin that needs repair – arms, legs, chest, back or butt, in addition to the face and neck.
The micro-needles are so small, the procedure is practically painless, and downtime is minimal, if any.
The number of Dermapen micro-needling skin care treatments required to achieve results can vary. However, often patients can see results in as few as 5 visits.
