Microneedling is a non-surgical treatment that uses fine needles to cause micro-traumas that activate the body’s skin-healing protein, collagen, which plumps and lifts the skin. Micro-needling on the body is an effective way of tightening skin after weight loss, healing stretch marks and removing scars. The procedure has very little down time and results can be seen as early as 24hrs after the procedure.
The Bellus Medical SkinPen®
We use the Bellus Medical SkinPen® in all our microneedling procedures because it is is clinically proven to improve the appearance of facial acne scars for people aged 22 and above in all skin types. It is the only FDA-cleared microneedling device. The SkinPen® proves more effective than previous techniques for skin rejuvenation like lasers and dermal needle rollers while remaining safe for most skin types. The high-speed motor and rapid pen motion not only makes the experience more comfortable for patients, but it also allows the procedure to run more efficiently.
You may experience temporary redness or swelling in the treatment area.
It is advised that patients avoid sun exposure to the area for up to 48 hrs. Side effects vary and aren’t limited to those listed above.
