What is Microneedling?
Board-certified physician Dr. Stuart B. Porter is happy to offer microneedling (collagen induction therapy) with the SkinPen® at his office in Provo, UT. Microneedling uses multiple fine needles to make micro-injuries in the skin to prompt the natural production of collagen and elastin in your skin. These are two nutrients that improve the overall health and appearance of your complexion. Easily combined with other treatments, such as vitamin serums or platelet-rich plasma (PRP), microneedling can help minimize stretch marks, scars, and pores. Make an appointment for a consultation at Xage Medical Spa to learn more about the benefits of microneedling and ways to personalize your treatment to meet your skin needs and aesthetic goals.
Who Should have a microneedling treatment?
You may be a candidate for microneedling treatments if you have light to mild complexion problems, like rough skin texture. Microneedling treatments may also reduce the look of pores, stretch marks, and scars. You must be willing to wait before seeing benefits from your microneedling procedure since the collagen and elastin require time to have an effect on the complexion, but you will have natural-looking results and gain healthier overall skin.
Our Microneedling Technique
A microneedling treatment is completed in a private treatment room in about 30 – 60 minutes with numbing cream if desired; however, patients generally report mild to no discomfort. The skin being addressed will be cleansed before the SkinPen is introduced. Your microneedling technician will make passes with the SkinPen evenly over your skin. After the microneedling is done, a treatment such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or serum with a vitamin infusion may be applied for deeper penetration of the nutrients. A moisturizer will be massaged in along with sunscreen since your skin will be more sensitive following the procedure.
If You Decide To Include Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
Before the microneedling part of your treatment, a member of our medical staff will take a sample of your blood for your PRP collection. The blood will then be transferred to our laboratory for the separation process during which the platelets, growth factors, and stem cells can be made into PRP. For the microneedling treatment, Xage Medical Spa utilizes innovative technology to create small holes in your skin. The little needles used will not damage your skin but instead will help stimulate the production of collagen. When the microneedling is complete, the PRP serum will be placed on the skin to sink in. PRP can also be injected into the skin.
What to Expect
After your microneedling treatment, you may develop mild swelling and redness for about a day, but this should resolve naturally. It can take around 1 – 2 months as the collagen and elastin levels increase until you see significant improvements in the appearance and health of your treated skin. You should schedule about 4 – 6 maintenance treatments every 4 – 6 weeks for ideal outcomes and lasting skin health.
