Micropenning (also known as Microneedling, Collagen Inducting Therapy) is an innovative safe skin treatment using a micro-needling pen that is used to treat acne scars, surgical scars, stretch marks, pore size, melasma, sun spots, fine and deep lines, and for skin rejuvenation.
Unlike many laser facials, this is safe for all skin types.
What are the benefits of microneedling?
• Improves fine lines and deeper wrinkles
• Reduces acne scars
• Softens stretch marks
• Evens skin tone
• Lightens hyperpigmentation (dark spots) and sun spots
• Reduces appearance of pores
• Firms and smooths skin texture
• Decreases appearance of scars
• Reduces broken capillaries and spider veins
• Brings back the glow for fresher, younger-looking skin
Optional prp Facial UpgradE(know to some as "vampire facial")
When PRP, platelet rich plasma, is added directly onto the skin where micropenning is done, your body’s regeneration system goes into overdrive and you produce collagen and elastin at amazing rates. In short, this magnifies the results of your micropenning facial giving you more dramatic results.
**PRP, short for platelet rich plasma, is taken from your own body in a simple quick blood draw.**
Is there down-time?
On the day of treatment, the treated area will be red and very mildly sore. You will look like you have a sunburn. The day post-treatment, you will be able to apply make-up as usual and will appear slightly pink. Some people have mild peeling of sloughed dead skin 3-4 days after the treatment.
Is there any preparation or aftercare for a micropen treatment?
There is nothing you need to do prior to treatment except be sure that any scar to be treated is closed and healing. After your treatment, you will need to continue good sunscreen use as usual. Other topicals may be recommended by your technician to treat a specific skin problem.
How many treatments are needed?
The number of recommended treatments varies depending on the condition. In general, 3-4 treatments 4-6 weeks apart, and then once yearly. For scarring, 6-8 treatments (2-4 weeks apart) are ideal. It takes more than one treatment to begin to notice the difference in your skin.
Will Micropenning treatments completely remove scars?
No. Micropenning is a highly effective treatment that minimizes scarring by stimulating collagen growth beneath the scar. Multiple treatments are required, but little down-time is needed. There are no current treatments that completely remove scars.
How long does a treatment take?
Although the actual treatment takes only a few minutes, we schedule you for a 1 hour appointment time so that you can comfortably numb the area prior to treatment and for a soothing topical can be applied afterwards.
