Dermal Needling is a technique that uses tiny sterile “micro” needles that create tiny injuries to the skin, also known as “Micro Fractional Collagen Stimulation”. These microscopic injuries then heal surprisingly quickly causing more collagen and elastin production. Why is this important? Because it improves wrinkles, minimizes pore size, and tightens the skin. The Micro Fractional Collagen Stimulation of dermal needling works exceptionally well in correcting or eliminating acne scars and stretch marks. Dermal needling, due to it micro fractional characteristics is a great delivery system for products designed to stimulate collagen and elastin. We utilize special “Growth Factors”, which in addition to stimulating collagen and elastin, substantially aid in the recovery process, reducing an already minimal downtime.
Another great characteristic of dermal needling is that it can be combined with other modalities at the same time. Most patients appreciate being able to come in and get their dermal needling treatment, FotoFacial and injectables in the same sitting, providing substantial results for our patients expectations.
Treatments are performed monthly and up to 5 treatments may be required (packages are offered at a reduced price). Downtime is minimal, the tiny injuries to the external skin heal within hours and makeup me be applied and worn the next day.
Dermal Needling is a very effective treatment and may only be performed by a licensed medical professional, in order to reach the necessary depth to maximize collagen and elastin production.
