Are You Interested in Rejuvenating Your Skin Naturally & Permanently?
Microneedling or epidermal collagen induction therapy is an aesthetic medical procedure that improves skin texture, smoothens fine wrinkles and softens scars. At Revitalize SkinMD, a certified specialist utilizes the SkinPen by Bellus Medical to perform each microneedling procedure in a customized manner to achieve
Not All Pens are the Same!
SkinPen is the world’s first FDA-cleared microneedling device! Achieving the best cosmetic results possible requires the use of the best tools and a highly experienced provider. At Revitalize SkinMD, we offer both of these for the benefit of our clients.
Microneedling is Effective For:
* Fine lines, dull skin, and enlarged pores
* Acne scars, chicken pox scars & some surgical scars
* Fine Nasolabial lines and lip lines (smoker's lines)
* Rejuvenation of hands, neck and décolletage
During the treatment, controlled micro-injuries are performed to the skin to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which gradually fill in fine lines, pores, scars and other skin irregularities to create smoother and more youthful looking skin. The best results are typically achieved with a series of treatments and can be quite amazing!
Let our skilled & trusted certified specialists evaluate your skin and determine if microneedling is right for you!
The benefits of micro-needling can include a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. SkinPen® can also have a positive effect on the appearance of hyper-pigmentation, dark spots, acne scars and stretch marks and create a fresher appearance or glow to the skin.
SkinPen® can be used on all parts of the body; face, neck, decollete, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.
Prior to treatment our certified microneedling professional will apply a topical numbing cream for the patient’s increased comfort during treatment. A sterile cartridge tip containing 12 points is attached to the SkinPen®. Next, precise micro injuries will occur to the skin as the SkinPen® is gently pressed against the skin. The SkinPen®. will glide on the skin in specific directions until the entire treatment area has been covered.
The feeling associated with the SkinPen® is similar to light sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, our certified specialist’s technique and the speed of the reciprocating SkinPen® tip reduces discomfort while the post-treatment instructions will help make the procedure more tolerable.
The procedure takes 30-60 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.
Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the skins condition and the treatment area. Typically patients are pinkish-red up to 2 to 4 days. Some patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours.
Many 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 six months after the treatment series as collagen production continues.
In order to achieve optimal results, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 3-4 treatments spaced about 4-6 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars, your skin care provider may recommend 6-8 sessions at 4-6 week intervals
