MicroNeedling

What is MicroNeedling?

Micro-Needling is a new innovation in aesthetics here in Ashland, KY for the treatment of fine lines, acne scars and improvement of the skin’s overall appearance by stimulating and growing collagen and elastin. But this is just the first benefit of MicroNeedling.

How is MicroNeedling done?

During this procedure, tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker dermis with the appearance of softer wrinkles. Micro pen also creates superficial micro-channels which allow topical gels, creams and serums to be absorbed more effectively into the skin.

What are the benefits of MicroNeedling?

The benefits of Micro-Needling are a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. Micro pen also has a positive effect on hyper-pigmentation as well as on hypo-pigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks and generally creates a fresher appearance or glow to the skin. Micro pen can be used on all parts of the body; Face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.

What does it feel like?

The feeling associated with the MicroNeedling is similar to light sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating needle tip reduces discomfort while the applied hydrating gel also makes the treatment more tolerable. There is a topical anesthetic rubbed into the area of the procedure for added comfort.

How long does it take?

Although the procedure itself only takes 15-45 minutes, depending on the size of the area treated, there is an additional 30 minutes allotted for you to numb with the topical anesthetic.

After the treatment:

Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the depth of needles used and the number of overlapping passes your skincare professional performs. On average, patients are red up to 2 to 4 days. Some patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours. Utilizing quality skincare products, provided by your skincare provider, can help to speed up the healing process. Patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several days and weeks. Results continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production continues. Some patients only require a single treatment, once per year to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 6 week intervals.
