Microneedling, also called collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that benefits many beauty concerns.
At Sky Vein & Aesthetics, Dr. Harrison uses the SkinPen® to perform microneedling treatment. SkinPen is the first FDA-approved microneedling device.
With the SkinPen, Dr. Harrison treats:
Microneedling works by stimulating your skin’s natural healing process to fix your beauty flaws.
With the SkinPen, Dr. Harrison creates microtears in the surface layer of your skin, simulating an injury. Though the tiny tears heal within minutes, it triggers your skin’s natural healing cascade to repair the damage. This includes an increase in production of collagen and elastin.
Collagen is a structural protein found in the dermal layer of your skin that provides its natural strength and resilience. As you get older, collagen production decreases and is one of the main contributors to the visible signs of aging.
Dr. Harrison takes a personalized approach to care and develops customized treatment plans based on your beauty goals and skin care needs. He reviews what you can expect during your microneedling consultation.
Before he starts your microneedling treatment, Dr. Harrison first applies a numbing cream to your skin to minimize discomfort. He then uses the SkinPen to create the microtears in the surface layer of your skin to get the desired results.
Your microneedling treatment takes less than 30 minutes. There’s no need for any downtime afterward. However, you may experience some redness and swelling in the treatment area, which typically resolves within a few days.
To speed up the recovery process and reduce inflammation, Dr. Harrison completes your microneedling session with Celluma® LED light therapy.
Though you may notice an improvement in your skin soon after microneedling, your skin’s natural healing process takes time. Results are typically visible in six weeks, with maximum collagen induction for skin tightening and rejuvenation usually seen within 3-6 months.
Dr. Harrison may recommend a series of 3-6 microneedling sessions every four weeks to get the best results.
