The repair systems of the body are miraculous. In the body’s largest organ, the skin, microneedling utilizes the natural healing mechanisms to produce improvements in complexion, firmness, and tone.
How does microneedling work?
At Diamond Medical Spa & Vein, we utilize the Micropen for microneedling. It is a pen-shaped device with 12 very fine needles at the end. As the Micropen is moved over the treatment area, it creates hundreds of microscopic needle wounds on the skin at an adjustable depth of up to 2 mm. The body responds to these microscopic wounds as if injured, building new collagen and elastin fiber in the area. These proteins are responsible for the structure and support of the skin.
What conditions will microneedling address?
Microneedling is effective in treating a variety of skin conditions quickly and effectively.
- Mild to moderate acne scarring
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Loose, lax skin
- Skin texture problems
- Enlarged pores
- Stretch marks
What happens during a session?
At Diamond, we start a microneedling session by applying a topical numbing cream 30 minutes prior to the actual microneedling. Then we cover the treatment areas. Sessions last from 30 to 60 minutes depending on the area. Afterwards, we apply various products to hydrate, heal, and protect the skin.
Clients see smoother, firmer, brighter skin after just one session, but we recommend four to six sessions for the best results.
