Microneedling?!? Really, it’s not as bad as it sounds, and even better, the results this service can provide may leave you wowed! Take a moment to learn more about this cutting edge skin therapy service.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling (sometimes called Dermapen) is a non-invasive treatment that helps your skin produce collagen. As you know, collagen helps give your skin a smooth, even look, while reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sometimes even scars. This treatment uses very tiny needles to prick the skin and because it’s minimally invasive, there’s little to no downtime afterward. While this treatment is best known for use on the face, it can also be effective in treating stretch marks and acne scars.
What Benefits Does Microneedling Offer?
- Softens lines and wrinkles.
- Improves skin texture.
- Helps with stretch marks.
- Helps with serum penetration.
- May stimulate hair growth when used on the scalp.
- Helps with subtle acne scarring or the onset of wrinkles.
- Help those who aren’t a candidate for laser treatments.
Is Microneedling Safe?
Microneedling is generally considered safe, effective, and long-lasting. We perform our treatments in a sterile environment and use calvcide (medical grade) wipes to sanitize every area before and after your treatment. All needles used during your treatment are sterile and disposable. Additionally, the “Dermapen” is protected by plastic sleeves to protect each client.
What Is The Cost Of Microneedling?
For the face treatment, it’s about $250 per visit. For neck or décolletage areas, it’s about $150 per visit. Additionally you can upgrade this service by including BB Cream in your Microneedling Treatment for effortless beauty around the clock. For all the benefits this treatment offers, it’s an inexpensive, non-invasive way to enjoy great results.

What Should I do Before a Treatment to Help Get the Best Results?
We recommend using a topical Vitamin C and some form of Retinal. If you have hyperpigmentation, it may also help to use hydroquinone or a skin brightener the day before your treatment although, you should check with your dermatologist before beginning any new skincare treatment especially if you have sensitive skin. It is also a good idea to clean and exfoliate your skin prior to your treatment. If you have questions, we’re here for you and are happy to make product recommendations before your first treatment.
If you have an acne breakout or an open wound, we recommend that you wait until it’s healed. The treatment can cause additional breakouts or other issues because the treatment can spread. We want to help ensure the best possible results for you.
What Do I Need to Do After Treatment?
Because your skin will be extra sensitive to sunlight, it’s very important that you apply sunscreen as your skin heals. For the first few days, your skin may look like it’s sunburned, which is its own, natural reaction to the treatment. After your treatment, you may also see some pinpoint bleeding. To help your skin heal, we recommend staying inside and hydrating your skin for the first 24 hours. After 24 hours, you can apply makeup.
Unlike plastic surgery, you can return to your normal routine right afterward. And within a couple of weeks, you should start to see the benefits of this treatment.
What Can I Expect During Treatment?
First, our professionals will apply a numbing gel to your face so there is little to no pain. The gel itself takes about an hour to become fully effective. Then our professionals will use the Dermapen to treat your skin. This treatment takes about 30 minutes so plan to be at Skin Renewal for about two hours. For the best results, we recommend a series of three treatments, once a month for three months.
