Could Microneedling Be Your Favorite Cosmetic Treatment?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment in which tiny punctures are created in the skin using micro-fine needles (from 0.5 to 2 millimeters in diameter). This treatment triggers the body’s natural wound healing process, resulting in cell turnover and stimulating collagen and elastin production, reversing as well as preventing signs of aging. Though the treatment is appropriate for many different skin types, it is important to let a professional decide whether or not it’s right for you. Some skin conditions such as active acne and pustular rosacea as well as illnesses that involve issues with wound healing are contraindicated. With that said, whether your skin has texture to it due to large pores, acne scars or fine lines or you’re looking for a rejuvenating anti-aging boost, this treatment is ideal. We’ve seen some great results with melasma, a type of hyperpigmentation commonly seen in women that can be due to hormonal influences when microneedling treatments were used in conjunction with topical medications at home.

We have received great feedback regarding the results of this treatment! Here’s what one of our patients said about microneedling and melasma…”Microneedling has been my favorite cosmetic treatment. I have struggled with melasma for years. After only 2 treatments, I saw results. Not only did it help with the melasma, but it has also made my skin tone and texture amazing.” Microneedling is a great alternative to laser for patients who aren’t candidates for laser treatments or a great adjunct therapy as maintenance. Here’s what another Paradise patient had to say…”This is the only treatment that has given my skin immediate, visible results. Now after three treatments, I have improvement in the fine lines around my eyes and in the brown sun damaged spots on my cheeks. The biggest change was to the overall texture of my skin- it looks and feels significantly smoother. And my skin continues to improve. I am hooked!”

While results vary from person to person, improvement can be seen as soon as 2 weeks after the procedure with results continuing up to 8 months post-procedure as collagen is produced cyclically and builds up over time. We generally see marked improvement around 4-6 weeks after the second treatment and recommend at least 2 and up to 6 sessions. At Paradise Dermatology we offer individual microneedling sessions starting at 250.00 but also have a package of 3 available, which offers a per treatment savings. Human growth hormone and topical post procedure serums are available to maximize your results. You may have heard of microneedling referred to as the “vampire facial”. While we do bring the skin to pinpoint bleed, the procedure itself is very comfortable, as your skin will be numbed topically. You might experience a bit of redness immediately following the treatment and some dryness and tightness for a few days following, but once it subsides, you’ll notice a dewy, glowy complexion and a new plumpness to your skin!
