What Is Microneedling?
This unique process involves the use of platelets found in human blood to heal wounds and regenerate damaged skin. During a microneedling treatment session, we add platelets to your microneedling procedure for maximum healing and skin rejuvenation. This treatment is minimally-invasive and delivers rejuvenating results without the use of outside chemicals or additives.
What Does Microneedling Address?
At Behr Laser & Skin Care Center, we use a Bellus Medical SkinPen for our microneedling procedures. This pen uses 14 tiny needles that move up and down as the pen is moved across the treatment areas. These needles penetrate the epidermis to a selected depth of up to 2mm and facilitate the addition of plasma platelets into the skin. This treatment is an excellent choice for addressing aging skin signs such as wrinkles and fine lines.
How Does It Work?
During the treatment process, the SkinPen is moved across your skin, creating hundreds of microscopic punctures/channels down within the dermis. The microscopic punctures are surrounded by untouched skin so they begin to heal almost immediately. As they heal, the body naturally produces new supplies of collagen, elastin, and skin cells. With the addition of platelets, this process is essentially supercharged, promoting faster healing and more beneficial results.
What Results Can I Expect?
After your treatment, you may feel like you have a mild sunburn and tightening. Some redness and flushing will be present depending on how many passes were made over your treatment areas and the depth of microneedle penetration. These side effects usually resolve within a day. This treatment is designed to offer progressive results, with collagen and elastin production being ramped up for weeks.
Visible changes with the skin develop over the course of several days and weeks. Your results can continue to improve for up to six months, afterward, they will be permanent. We recommend a series of 3-6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart for best results.
