An innovative skin rejuvenation treatment, microneedling is a form of Collagen Induction Therapy that significantly improves the appearance of sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and stretch marks with little downtime.
Fast and minimally invasive, it stimulates the natural production of new collagen and elastin in the skin. The repair process begins almost immediately.
Safe and minimally invasive, microneedling allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair process by creating precise, micro-injuries (tiny punctures) in the skin.
We utilize the FDA-cleared Dr. Pen device at RENEW. The DR. Pen is gently pressed against your skin and uses straight needles to penetrate at a 90 degree angle.
This stimulates your skin’s natural ability to heal by producing new collagen and elastin fibers, encouraging your skin to look and feel healthier. There is no tissue destruction with microneedling. The small channels in the epidermis close very quickly and the skin begins a healing response of producing new collagen and elastin right away.
This skin rejuvenation treatment is safe and effective for all parts of the body including the face, neck, and décolletage (the area that of your chest that is exposed when you wear a top with a lower neckline). It helps improve:
Your skin care specialist will apply a numbing cream prior to your treatment to minimize any discomfort. The high-speed motor of the Dr. Pen device causes needle penetration to occur very quickly.
The sensation you will experience is often described as feeling like sandpaper or a cat’s tongue. Scar treatment with microneedling requires deeper penetration into the nerve space, which can cause discomfort.
After the numbing cream wears off, you’ll feel like you have a sunburn. This usually only lasts for 24 hours.
The healing process begins almost immediately. Your skin will look smoother and more radiant in a week following your microneedling treatment at RENEW. Results are gradual, with incremental improvement with each microneedling session.
Pricing is per treatment. Save when you purchase a series of three Microneedling treatments (six recommended for optimal results). See price list under the Spa Service tab.
You’ll look like you have a sunburn following treatment. Most of our clients take the day off and return to work the following day.
For deeper treatments, redness may persist for several days, and you may also experience slight pinprick bleeding that will stop immediately. For special events, we recommend planning for 5 days for a complete recovery.
Yes, microneedling is safe and effective for people of all skin types without risk of post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation.
