Micro-needling also known as collagen induction therapy aids in reduction of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, acne, and stretch marks by stimulating your skin’s natural ability to repair itself.
Micro-needling can dramatically improve the appearance of your skin’s texture and overall tone of the skin.
The ProCell MicroNeedling Pen used at The Plastic Surgery Center is physician-designed to exfoliate while creating microchannels for delivery of serums. The microperforations created during this procedure release growth factors triggering the wound healing process. During this process the body produces more collagen and elastin leaving skin brighter, healthier, more luminous.
The micro-channels allow for topical skin care products to work better and penetrate more deeply into the skin.
For maximum results and to further enhance your treatment a professional skin care regimen is recommended. To learn more about our skin care products, skin analysis consultations are available at our Sycamore Medi Spa.
Usually 3-4 treatments are required for optimum results, however immediate improvement in skins smoothness, firmness, hydration can be seen after a single treatment. Treatments are spaced one month apart and performed by a plastic surgeon. Downtime is little, if any.
Discomfort at treatment site such as redness and swelling may last up to 2 hours or longer. With longer needle lengths the skin will look sunburned for a day or two with potential pinprick scabbing and will return to normal by day 2 or day 3.
Micro needling compliments facial fillers, Botox injections, lasers, and chemical peels.
