Micro-needling treatments are a non-surgical, minimally invasive rejuvenation procedure, using numerous tiny needles to stimulate new collagen and skin tissue, resulting in smoother, brighter and firmer skin. Using the Eclipse Micropen EVO device, Dr. Lewin’s micro-needling treatments promote skin renewal, gradually smoothing uneven facial texture and improving skin quality. Sometimes referred to as collagen induction therapy, micro-needling is also considered effective when used to treat fine lines, large and/or open pores, signs of aging and some types of minor scarring including acne scars and may also be used to reduce the appearance of stretch marks and sunspots.
During your consultation, Dr. Lewin will discuss the procedure with you including pre-and post-treatment recommendations. During your treatment, a numbing gel will be applied for comfort and either hyaluronic acid serum or Platelet- Rich- Plasma (PRP) will be used to increase collagen production and spur the healing process. Non-surgical and minimally invasive, micro-needling requires no downtime although you may experience minor redness for 12-24 hours.
