“I absolutely love microneedling. After only a few treatments, my skin looks the best it’s looked in years.”
- Maria S., Beauty Fix Med Spa customer
When it comes to improving the health and appearance of your skin, it is tough to beat microneedling. By triggering the body’s natural immune response to promote collagen production, microneedling helps to transform blemished, damaged tissue into smoother, more vibrant skin. Microneedling is the perfect option for those wishing to:
- Fade and reduce the appearance of scars (acne and others)
- Decrease stretch marks and get rid of wrinkles
- Improve the overall quality of your skin
What is microneedling?
Here at Beauty Fix Med Spa, we use the most advanced microneedling device on the market: the Micropen®. Using tiny needles to create controlled micro-injuries, the Micropen® stimulates collagen production that reduces the appearance of fine lines and acne scars, and improves the skin’s texture, tone, and color.
What are the benefits?
Microneedling has a wide range of benefits, which include:
- Improvement in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and stretch marks
- Reduction of both acne and traumatic scars
- Improving the appearance of both hyper- and hypo-pigmentation
- Younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging
- Skin that has a fresh, vibrant glow
What areas of the body can be treated?
While used primarily on the face, neck, and decollete, it can also be used on other parts of the body, such as the arms, hands, legs, abdomen, and back.
How is the procedure completed?
When you arrive for your treatment, one of our skincare experts will apply a thin layer of sterile saline to your skin.
Then, they will evaluate your skin and select an individualized treatment option based on your skin’s unique needs.
Finally, the MicroPen® will be gently pressed against your skin, gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered.
Is microneedling painful?
Because the needles are so tiny, the pain is minimal (if at all), and it will feel similar to light sandpaper being moved across your skin. For patients with more sensitive skin, we use a topical numbing cream to ensure they have a pleasant experience.
How long does treatment take?
Depending on the size of the treatment area, it typically takes between 15 and 30 minutes. Because it is so quick, many of our patients choose to come in during their lunch break.
Are there side effects or downtime?
There is absolutely no downtime so you can get back to your day right away. Side effects are minimal, with the most common side effects being skin irritation and redness. On average, your skin will be red for 2-4 days following treatment.
When will I see results?
While other skin treatments produce results that are short-lived, microneedling improves the appearance of your skin for years to come, and is considered one of the longing-lasting skin treatments available.
Two to three days post treatment, your skin will have an improvement in new collagen production and many of our patients report a noticeable difference at this time.
However, the most dictinct results will be about 4 weeks (all the way to 6 months) post-treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
Generally, it is recommended to get 4-6 treatments for the best results. Of course, this varies from person to person and the quality of your skin at the beginning of treatment. To ensure you get the best results for your skincare goals, our doctors will work with you to come up with an individualized plan prior to treatment.
