What is Micro-Needling?
This procedure is a moderately invasive skin procedure that utilizes very fine needles that penetrate the upper layers of skin to create “microchannels.” These channels enable the body to use its own mechanism of wound healing that stimulates the growth of collagen and elastin.
At Restoration MedSpa in Virginia Beach, we offer microneedling via the MesoPen®. MesoPen® is an automated microneedling device with the only needle cartridges with a patented silicone sleeve to prevent cross-contamination. This silicone sleeve ensures maximum safety for patients and providers.
Before your microneedling treatment, you will be asked if you have any health conditions that may be at variance with microneedling. These include open wounds, sores, active acne, blood clotting issues, bacterial or fungal infections, wound-healing deficiencies, and vascular diseases.
Topical anesthetics may be applied before treatment to dull any possible discomfort. Treatment time will vary between 15-60 minutes, depending on size of the treatment area. Follow-up treatments at least six weeks apart are necessary to maintain results.
The end result is improved skin texture, pore reduction and minimized fine lines and superficial scarring. Patients experience three to four days of redness and a small amount of peeling. Patients should take care to avoid direct sunlight for a few days as well.
