Micro-Needling in Rochester, NY
What is Micro-Needling in Rochester?
Micro-needling is a non-invasive, revolutionary skin-rejuvenation procedure that helps to create younger, healthier looking skin. Micro-needling is a form of collagen induction therapy, meaning it stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. Micro-needling is performed using a device called a Rejuvapen™, which uses micro-needles to pierce the epidermis and dermis to stimulate the body to produce collagen to repair the treated areas. Micro-needling can be performed on its own to tighten skin and lessen the appearance of scars or can be used as a complement to other treatments such as chemical peels and micro-dermabrasion. The course of the micro-needling treatment is dependent on the patient’s and clinician’s goals. Micro-needling treatments are safe, effective and an affordable alternative to other more invasive or more comprehensive skin resurfacing procedures.
How does Micro-Needling work in Rochester?
Micro-needling using the Rejuvapen™ works by stimulating the body to produce its own additional collagen and elastin in response to the delivery of micro-needles into the dermis and epidermis. The Rejuvapen™ is capable of producing similar, sometimes better, results than a fractional laser without the worry of hyper or hypo-pigmentation for the patient and does not use heat, which alleviates the related side effects. The Rejuvapen™ is an automatic device that is able to produce over 1300 micro-needle holes in the surface of the skin per second.
The Rejuvapen™ can be used for a number of aesthetic improvements such as lessening the appearance of wrinkles and lines, improving the appearance of acne scars and other scars, and tightening and softening skin. It also helps to lift and rejuvenate the skin by triggering the body to produce elastin to help heal the areas treated with the Rejuvapen™. The number of sessions required to achieve the desired results depends on the severity of the wrinkles, scars or condition of the area to be treated.
How much downtime should I expect from Micro-Needling in Rochester?
Micro-needling performed with the Rejuvapen™ pierces the skin using micro-needles. The procedure is nearly painless and the downtime is minimal to non-existent. After treatment and depending on its aggressiveness, patients can experience redness similar to sunburn and may have slight swelling in the treated area. With proper home care, most patients that undergo micro-needling will only experience slight after effects for two to three days.
What are the long-term results of Micro-Needling in Rochester?
Micro-needling is an all-natural procedure that triggers your own body to firm and tighten your skin for you. It can make you look years younger without undergoing invasive procedures such as a facelift. For those with acne scars, injury or surgery scars, it can help soften them and lessen their intensity. It can be used on stretch marks, tattoos and other skin imperfections as well. Results from micro-needling are long lasting as there is no substance injected and your body uses its own collagen and elastin to improve your appearance.
