Microneedling is a dermaroller procedure that uses small needles to prick the skin. The purpose of treatment is to generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin. Microneedling is mostly used on the face and may treat various scars, wrinkles, and large pores.
The professionals at Azul Medspa utilize the InnoPen™. The InnoPen™ is a new state of the art microneedling device that induces collagen and elastin production.
We have also begun using Skinpen™ to help treat acne scarring. Continue reading below for more information on microneedling and available styles of treatment.
During your treatment, the device is carefully moved over areas of the skin by our skin care technicians. The micro-piercings created by the device stimulate production of collagen and elastin in the skin. Your skin’s repair process results in a thicker dermis (inner skin layer) with a softening and reduction in lines and wrinkles. The InnoPen™ creates superficial micro-channels which allow customized nutrient serums, such as a vitamin C-serum or other serum chosen based on desired outcome, to be absorbed more effectively into the skin, enhancing treatment outcomes. During you consultation, our skin care specialist will determine the most effective serum to achieve your desired goals.
Immediately after your microneedling treatment at Azul Medspa, your skin may appear slightly red. The topical serum applied at the end of your treatment will help control any minor bleeding and will increase absorption of the cosmeceutical solution. The total healing time depends on the depth of needles used and the number of overlapping passes. On average, patients experience mild redness and swelling for two to four days. Some patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours.*
Patients generally require 4-5 sessions to receive optimal results. The first 3 treatments should be spaced 2 weeks apart, and the last 2-3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced sun damage, stretch marks or deeper acne scars, it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at two to four week intervals.*
Our patients often notice an immediate "glow" to their skin within a couple of days. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several days and weeks. Results continue to improve up to six months after the treatment as collagen and elastic production continues and the skin smooths out.*
