Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is rapidly gaining attention in the beauty world.
It’s a cosmetic procedure using a device encompassing a cartridge with tiny needles. It is glided over the skin to create “micro-injuries,” stimulating collagen production to fill in fine lines and plump the skin for a younger look.
While there are several different types of micro-needling devices, here at The Laser Image Company, we use the MD Needle Pen, a state-of-the-art device available only through physician’s offices.
The treatment minimizes fine lines and wrinkles, firming and tightening the skin. It can also treat acne scars, surgical scars, burns, stretch marks and even hair loss. Essentially, MD Needle Pen stimulates the body’s natural healing powers to create dramatic change.
Most commonly patients will experience some redness afterward the procedure that resembles a sunburn. This reaction may last for 1-3 days but most will dissipate within 24 hours.
Keep in mind that dermal collagen remodeling occurs over time and it would unrealistic to expect the skin issue being treated to disappear right away. A series of monthly appointments typically achieve the best results and the final outcome can be seen 90 days after the last treatment.
