Microneedling

WHY MICRONEEDLING?

The purpose of receiving a MICRONEEDLING treatment by Allied Medical Aesthetics is a procedure designed to improve your overall skin health and appearance.  Microneedling is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself when it suffers physical damage such as cuts, burns, abrasions & other injuries.  Immediately after an injury our body begins the healing process, triggering new collagen synthesis.  Our FDA cleared Rejuvapen microneedling device creates superficial “micro-injuries” to the outermost layer of skin to promote new collagen production.  Microneedling has been shown to reduce the visibility of acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, diminish hyperpigmentation, and improve skin tone & texture, resulting in a smoother, firmer & younger looking skin.  Microneedling can be paired with growth factors & peels maximize the treatment and reach individual skin care goals & concerns.

WHAT IS A MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT LIKE?

Our FDA Cleared Rejuvapen is a microneedling device that uses a specialized “pen” containing a sterile, individualized cartridge with 12 small needles.  These are extremely small needles that lead to great results.  The treatment itself feels a bit like sandpaper going over the skin.  Some scarred areas can be more sensitive than others, so parts of the session will be less comfortable than others.  You can anticipate your treatment to take a little over an hour including numbing time.  After the procedure, the skin will be red & sensitive with mild edema (swelling) and/or possible bruising.  Although these symptoms may take 2-3 days to resolve completely, they will diminish significantly within a few hours after treatment.  Allied Medical Aesthetics will help determine which microneedling treatment will best meet your skincare needs.  Rejuvapen microneedling is about on-going improvement.  Most patients benefit most from a series of treatments over several months, each with gradual results, to reach optimal skin care goals.  

WHAT AREAS ARE COMMONLY TREATED WITH MICRONEEDLING?

The technology is versatile and can be used to improve skin appearance on many parts of the body, including the most common being the face, neck, chest, and hands. It can be used to help skin look better by reducing and even eliminating acne scars, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, fine lines and wrinkles.

WHAT IS THE COST OF MICRONEEDLING?

Microneedling treatments start at $295 and range up to $595 if paired with a PRP treatment.  Please inquire about our Monthly Membership options and our Beauty & Wellness Express as they are both excellent ways to save on your next Microneedling treatment.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS AFTER A MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT?

Approximately 48 to 72 hours after the treatment you’ll have an increase in collagen production.   Based on cellular turnover & cell production, It will take at least 6 – 8 weeks to see noticeable results. The new production of collagen will last for several years, which is why microneedling treatments are considered a very long-lasting treatment

HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED WITH MICRONEEDLING?

Most patients benefit most from a series of treatments over several months, each with gradual results, to reach optimal skin care goals.  Micro-needling can be safely repeated every 4 weeks until you achieve the desired results.  For optimal collagen induction, we recommend starting with 3 treatments & a series of 3 to 6 for scar reduction.

WHAT IS MY RECOVERY TIME FROM MICRONEEDLING?

A Microneedling treatment can cause redness (similar to a mild sunburn), light swelling, a stinging sensation and a bit of tenderness. These effects can last a day to several days, depending on treatment depth, and the redness is usually easily camouflaged with make-up after the initial 24 hours post treatment.  Most patients can return to work and normal activities following the treatment.
