What is Microneedling?
Microneedling treatments entail insertion of small needles to create micro-channels in the skin, creating controlled injuries for the purpose of cell reproduction and rejuvenation. Javan uses an FDA approved microneedling device called Skinpen, which delivers a clean, safe approach for optimal results.
Micro-fine needles penetrate the skin to promote healthy collagen production and cell growth. While the treatment is being administered, hyaluronic acid is applied, which helps with soft tissue growth and collagen production. These micro-injuries force your skin to heal itself, increasing the production of collagen and elastin. It not only helps with deep scarring on the skin, but it aids in advancing cell-turnover revealing brighter, firmer skin. This process is customizable to your skin’s specific needs and can be paired with other treatments, such as one’s own plasma, hyaluronic acid, and even lasers for faster and longer term results.
The results are almost immediate, seeing improvement to the skin in almost 1-2 weeks. Gentle, but effective, products are recommended post procedure in maintaining the new skin.
What does Microneedling Treat?
Those who benefit most from Microneedling are patients who wish to treat hyperpigmentation, acne scars, skin laxity, tone and texture, and overall improvements to the skin. It is a perfect anti-aging treatment to keep your skin looking radiant and youthful. We often recommend alternating microneedling treatments with custom facials and neurotoxin treatments for the ultimate anti-aging effect.
Microneedling with PRP
To yield the best results for microneedling, PRP, or platelet rich plasma, can be added with Microneedling for an enhanced effect. This add on includes using the patients own blood cells to accelerate healing and cell growth.
