Micro needling is a very safe, effective non-surgical and non-ablative treatment for various skin conditions such as fine wrinkle, acne scarring and hyper-pigmentation. Clinical studies have shown professional micro needling to be comparable to fractional laser treatment. By traumatizing areas of the skin, it initiates skin-healing response and stimulates collagen and elastin production resulting in a thicker, younger looking skin. At Esthetica MD this procedure is combined with other rejuvenation treatments, including PRP to create maximal benefit and improve penetration of topically applied vitamins, peptides, and other ingredients.
Fractional Microneedling (Dermapen®) is a new technology that resurfaces skin in a safe and effective way, replacing manual rolling micro-needling devices. The Dermapen® uses a unique spring loaded, stamping technology where the skin is rapidly pierced. The device creates uniform micro wounds in the skin. Speed and depth of penetration can be controlled. These micro injuries to the skin encourage the body’s innate ability to re-grow and repair the skin through the physiology of collagen induction. Patients report less pain and shorter recovery periods and greater efficacy as a result. Dermapen® can also be used on all skin types. When utilized for generalized resurfacing of the face, products such as topical growth factors and anti aging serums are better absorbed in the skin. It has excellent application with use of PRP and for hair follicle stimulation. A series of these procedures produces results comparable to the use of the fractional lasers without the risks and downtime associated with lasers. The procedure is colorblind and can be used on any skin type.
