For natural skin renewal, microneedling is a popular treatment due to its ability to promote your skin’s own revitalization process, giving it a healthy glow. Microneedling is a great alternative to laser resurfacing treatments or chemical peels and helps achieve smoother, younger looking skin with virtually zero downtime.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling uses tiny, sterile needles to puncture the surface of the skin, creating a micro-injury. This stimulates your skin’s natural production of elastin and collagen, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, scars, sun spots, and other blemishes.
We use a device called the SkinStylus, which is the only FDA-approved microneedling device cleared to reach a depth of 2.5mm, making it effective at rejuvenating the skin in areas where incisions were previously made and scars resulted. This medical-grade microneedling delivery system can penetrate deeper than other microneedling devices. It also boasts finer, more comfortable needles that produce a more refined result.
The SkinStylus microneedling system offers superior results, reduced discomfort, and no downtime after treatment. It is FDA-approved for treatment of abdominal scars, such as those resulting from a tummy tuck, or a cesarean section birth. Other treatments can be safely and effectively accomplished by using the device at a lower depth setting.
At Ageless Anatomy, We Use SkinStylus to Treat the Following:
- Age Spots
- Sun Damage
- Skin Dehydration
- Fine Lines and Wrinkles
- Poor Skin Tone and Texture
- Collagen Induction Therapy
SkinStylus May Be a Perfect Treatment Choice for Patients Who:
- Have skin of any color. The device is FDA-cleared for use on all skin tones and skin types.
- Have visible scars.
- Have any of the skin conditions list above that they would like assistance in resolving.
Is Microneedling Safe?
SkinStylus is one of the first microneedling treatment for acne scarring to have received FDA clearance. Unlike many devices on the market, SkinStylus SteriLock cartridges do not allow fluids to exit the cartridge and enter the motor, which protects our patients! The SkinStylus was created by a team of skincare and medical professionals and its three unique configurations allow us to safely and easily treat scars and deep skin blemishes. It is backed by years of research and clinical trials. In those clinical trials, 73 percent of patients saw meaningful improvement in reducing the appearance of scarring, when assessed by external professionals. When used to enhance the complexion, visible improvement in skin tone and texture is seen within a few days.
What Is The Down Time
No down time is required after the SkinStylus microneedling treatment. The most common side effect is temporary redness and mild swelling that typically lasts for up to four days. A small number of patients may experience scabbing, peeling, and discomfort in the treatment area, which is typically self-resolving.
