Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that uses very fine, short needles to cause controlled micro-injuries to the top layer of your skin. By doing that it provokes your body's natural healing process which results in smoother, firmer, more toned skin. Also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, microneedling is a safe and effective procedure to treat a variety of conditions, e.g. acne scars, stretch marks, or uneven tones and textures.
At the beginning of every microneedling treatment, a numbing cream is applied to reduce patient discomfort. Then, we pierce the skin using the SkinPen’s sterile needle head in order to generate new collagen and skin tissue. Most patients add Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to improve and extend the rejuvenating effects of their microneedling treatment.
Microneedling requires little to no downtime, but you may experience redness, skin tightness, and mild sensitivity to touch. Those side effects typically disappear within 24 hours. While visible improvements, e.g. reduced lines and wrinkles and radiant skin, can be seen after just one session, we recommend repeated sessions.
Dawn is next level! Between her technical knowledge, highly skilled application and eye for perfection, my skin has never looked better. I've had microneedling with PRP in the past, but they don't come close to Dawn's application. [...] I'm excited to see the final results after my series of 3.
