The quest for ageless, glowing skin is an evergreen one.

Factors such as age, sun damage and environmental pollutants gradually take their toll, manifesting as wrinkles, scars and a loss of vitality. Microneedling, a revolutionary procedure, can help reverse some of these adverse effects, giving you a refreshed complexion and revitalized skin.

At VITAHL Medical Aesthetics, we use the FDA-cleared SkinPen device for our microneedling treatments, ensuring the highest level of safety and efficacy for our patients.

Why do we need Microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive way to rejuvenate the skin and has become a popular treatment for patients looking to improve their appearance. The secret lies in collagen. Think of collagen as the skin's scaffolding—it keeps our skin firm and youthful in our early years. As we age, our bodies produce less of this vital protein, leading to wrinkles, fine lines and sagging.

Microneedling works by making tiny punctures in the skin. These minor "injuries" kickstart the body's natural healing process, boosting collagen production and many other healing factors in the process. So, instead of just masking aging signs, microneedling tackles the root cause, prompting the skin to renew itself from within.

How does Microneedling work?

Microneedling, or "collagen induction therapy," involves using minuscule needles to create precise micro-injuries to the skin. This controlled damage spurs the body's natural response to produce more collagen, the primary protein that maintains our skin's elasticity and facilitates its repair.

SkinPen takes microneedling to the next level with its adjustable needle depth and motorized technology. This ensures consistent and precise treatments that can be tailored to individual skin concerns. The SkinPen device creates hundreds of microscopic channels in the skin. As the skin heals, it produces new collagen and elastin and becomes smoother, firmer and more youthful-looking.

What does Microneedling treat?

Microneedling treats a wide range of skin issues caused by either too little or too much collagen. Problems we can address with this innovative treatment include:

  • Early signs of aging

  • Fine lines

  • Wrinkles

  • Scars

  • Large pores

  • Dull and uneve ski tone

  • Hair loss (when combined with PRP or other serums)

When it comes to microneedling, not all devices are created equal. At VITAHL Medical Aesthetics, we proudly use SkinPen, the first FDA-cleared microneedling device. We chose this device for its superior safety, versatility and effectiveness.

Who are good Microneedling candidates?

Microneedling welcomes a diverse audience. Patients looking to improve skin texture and wrinkles are good candidates, as well as individuals looking to slow the aging process and improve skin health. SkinPen's adjustable settings make it suitable for a wide range of skin types and concerns, from light to dark complexions and mild to severe skin issues.

How to prepare for Microneedling

Embarking on a microneedling journey requires some preparatory steps. Protect your skin with a broad-spectrum SPF daily. A week before the procedure, avoiding direct sun exposure is recommended; however, encountering sun does not mean a treatment cannot be performed. We will assess your skin prior to treatment and may adjust treatment settings if needed.

It is ok to remain on all skincare products, including retinols, as long as your skin is not overly irritated from them. On the day of the procedure, it's best to present a canvas free of makeup. This careful preparation ensures the treatment is both practical and devoid of complications.

What to expect during your Microneedling procedure

The transformative journey towards radiant skin comprises several steps. Your clinician will cleanse your skin to remove impurities. A topical anesthetic is then applied to ensure you're comfortable throughout.

With the stage set, your VITAHL clinician will use the SkinPen microneedling device to create precise micro-injuries in the skin. The device's automated, oscillating needles reduce the risk of tearing or damaging the skin and minimize discomfort. Most patients find the sensation tolerable, especially with the topical anesthetic.

Following the procedure, a soothing serum may be applied to calm and hydrate your skin, sealing in the benefits of the treatment. Your clinician will then discuss post-treatment care instructions with you.

What to expect from Microneedling results

Most patients can return to their normal activities within 24-48 hours, with only mild redness and sensitivity in the treated area.

While initial results, such as a brighter complexion, may be visible within a week, the real magic of microneedling unfolds over the next three to six months. As collagen production gets a boost, unwanted texture and wrinkles fade, replaced by smooth, vibrant skin.

Results can vary based on individual skin types, the severity of concerns and desired outcomes. Multiple sessions enhance skin texture and tone, providing a more lasting transformation. Our clinicians will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that helps you reach your goals.
