Micro-Needling

Microneedling

Microneedling is an option for the treatment of fine lines, acne scars and improvement of the skin’s overall appearance. During this procedure, tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker dermis with the appearance of softer wrinkles. Skinpen Microneedling also creates superficial micro-channels which allow topical gels, creams and serums to be absorbed more effectively into the skin. We offer Skinpen Microneedling is at both our Birmingham and Tuscaloosa, AL locations.

The Benefits of Microneedling On Lines and Wrinkles

The benefits of microneedling are a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. The Eclipse Micropen™also has a positive effect on hyper-pigmentation as well as on hypo-pigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks and generally creates a fresher appearance or glow to the skin.

The Eclipse Micropen™ can be used on all parts of the body; Face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back. Any area of the body where new collagen and elastin production is needed can be stimulated. After treatment, patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several days and weeks. Results continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production continues. The procedure is safe for nearly all skin types.

Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the depth of needles used and the number of overlapping passes your skincare professional performs. On average, patients are red for up to 2 to 4 days. Some patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours.

How Does Microneedling Work?

It creates thousands of microchannels that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process, while minimizing cellular damage. This rejuvenates your skin from the inside out. The result is effective remodeling of scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.

How is the Procedure Done?

A sterile needle-tip containing 12 tiny micro-needles is attached to the SkinPen. Your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of topical numbing to your skin to minimize discomfort during the procedure and select the appropriate treatment depth based on your unique needs. Next, in a single motion, the pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered.

What does it feel like?

The feeling associated with the SkinPen is similar to light sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating needle tip reduces discomfort while the application of hydrating gel makes the treatment more tolerable.

How long does the procedure take?

The procedure takes 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.

What is the downtime?

Using recommended skincare products can speed up the healing process. Discuss this with your aesthetician.
