Your Guide to Micro-Needling

Are you one of the many patients in Virgina Beach or Kempsville who has tried beauty product after beauty product, in pursuit of smooth, even, radiant skin, with no luck? At Restoration MedSpa, we offer a treatment that can not only give you that radiant glow you desire, but can also diminish the appearance of acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation: micro-needling.

What is it?shutterstock_341479601 (2)

Micro-needling is a treatment done to treat acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, brown spots, and hyperpigmentation on the face. Using a special instrument called a micro-needle pen, small micro injuries are created in the skin, which stimulates the creation of collagen & elastin, promoting youth and radiant glow in the skin. It also allows for better penetration of skincare products. This treatment can be used on all skin types and conditions.

How is it done?

After a consultation, you will be prepared for the treatment. First, your skin will be cleansed and then a numbing cream will be applied. Next, a hyaluronic acid serum will be applied to the skin in order to help the micro-needle device better glide over the skin. The micro-needle pen will then be rolled across the skin. Patients will not feel any pain due to the numbing cream, as well as the growth factor serums to promote collagen and elastin creation.

It is important to understand that this treatment should not be done on skin that is irritated, inflamed, has eczema or has acne. After your micro-needling treatment, your skin will be red or flushed, though this will dissipate with time.

If you are interested in micro-needling for smooth, radiant skin, contact Restoration MedSpa today! We would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have. We look forward to seeing you!

    Hands down this is the most amazing plastic surgery office! No haggling and Dr. Jacobs will not perform a surgery if the scar exceeds the benefit. His words exactly which is exactly what I want to know ahead of time not after the surgery is done. Dr. Jacobs is a phenomenal surgeon and I trust him 150%. Felecia his nurse is as wonderful as Dr. Jacobs!!

  • I visited Dr. Johnathan Jacob's Office to see about getting a Lipoma removed from my upper left shoulder. After meeting Dr. Jacob's he discussed with me what needed to be done to remove it. I was very happy with the surgery and how good a surgeon he is. I was very satisfied with the procedure and the outcome. I was happy with his staff also they took good care of me. ???

    Felicia is the absolute BEST. If you enjoy the feeling when people say, “You look too young to have a 19 year old.” Then book an appointment with Felicia immediately. She’s the sweetest human being on the planet and excellent at her job.
