Micro Needling

Faye our licensed aesthetician use micro-needling to improve skin texture and firmness, and to reduce scars, pore size, and stretch marks. Micro-needling simply encourages the body to start the healing process, creating new collagen and elastin, improving the skin.

What’s microneedling??

Microneedling uses a “pen” with 12 tiny needles which are moved over the target areas of the skin. The needles create microscopic punctures/channels in the skin. The body reacts to this as if wounded, triggering repair mechanisms. As it produces new collagen and elastin, skin condition improves. Through these micro-channels we are also able to apply topical gels, creams, and serums that can penetrate the skin more efficiently, improving the outer layer of the skin.

Although it sounds painful, it isn’t. Before beginning a micro-needling session, Faye our aesthetician first applies a topical numbing cream, and patients report that they usually cannot feel anything during the procedure.

Microneedling kickstarts the best skin treatment chapter for anyone. Our esthetician, Faye Pena, will conduct a deep skin assessment before deeply cleansing your skin and restoring its natural glow. Our service is tailored to your specific skin needs and includes:

  • Deep cleanse
  • Applying enzyme peel

Esthemax jelly mask is an important part of our treatment.

Benefits of Microneedling

Microneedling is a fast and painless procedure that provides you with smoother, younger, and firmer skin. It provides you with glowing skin and erases signs of aging from your face. Some of the key benefits of the treatment include:

  • Diminishing acne scars, fine lines, deep wrinkles, and smoker’s mouth
  • Shrinking pores
  • Tightening sagging skin
  • Remodeling injury scars, burn scars, and surgical scars
  • Reducing the appearance of stretch marks
  • Increasing skincare products’ effectiveness

Our microneedling treatment services can also improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation, keloid scarring, hair loss, stretch marks, and rosacea.

The SkinPen® is a medical-grade, state-of-art precision tool used to address acne scars and the signs of aging. SkinPen® is a highly effective treatment that helps to reduce the signs of aging and enhance your skin's appearance by stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin. SkinPen® is also used to decrease the appearance of stretch marks on the body.

How SkinPen® Microneedling Procedures Work
  • Each of our bodies has innate processes that react to injury by producing new cells and extracellular materials (like elastin and collagen) to heal the damage. The SkinPen® achieves results by taking advantage of this natural process through the use of a finely-tuned micro-needling pen.
  • This device initiates your natural healing process by creating hundreds of temporary micro-sized openings or micro-channels in the skin. These "fractionated" micro-channels are created thanks to the design of the SkinPen®'s disposable needle cartridge, which achieves results without the use of thermal energy or chemicals applied to the skin.

What are the benefits of a fractionated approach with micro-needling?
  • A fast and safe method for inducing the production of collagen
  • Requires no thermal energy and is entirely non-ablative
  • Promotes care free healing
  • Safe for all skin types
  • No major downtime

What should I expect after SkinPen® procedures?
  • You can expect to experience effects similar to mild sunburn after the procedure, such as redness, tenderness, and some swelling. Despite that, there is no significant downtime after a SkinPen® procedure. Patients can return to normal activities and conceal most of the mild side effects with make-up after just one day.

Micro-Needling Results with SkinPen®
  • Since everyone's genetic makeup and needs are different, procedure requirements and SkinPen® results will vary. The number of sessions required and the depth of treatment will depend on what goals and results you would like to achieve.
  • While multiple sessions are recommended to achieve optimal micro-needling results, noticeable changes are typically seen just one week following treatment and gradually improve as the body's healing process promotes the production of healthy new cells and extracellular substances.
  • Patients with uneven skin tone and fine lines may see SkinPen® results after just one procedure, while those looking to soften the appearance of acne scarring may require several procedures.

What To Expect During The Treatment?

We are a trusted clinic providing safe microneedling and other skincare treatments in Teaneck, NJ. Since the procedure involves the use of tiny needles, many people think it to be painful. However, it is not, as we use professional techniques to numb the area. You can expect negligible discomfort while we perform the therapy.

Once the procedure is complete, you can find your skin to be slightly pink. You may even notice some puncture wounds. Both these signs will fade away after some days.

Is Microneedling Only For The Face?

The benefits of microneedling can be realized in different body areas, not just the face. The face is the area that is most treated, the procedure can be had anywhere on your body where there is a need to boost collagen. This especially includes areas with stretch marks, including the chest, legs, and butt.

The treatment is also provided for the following areas:

  • Arms
  • Neck
  • Low neckline
  • Almost entire body

Microneedling Frequency & Downtime

The number of microneedling treatment sessions you will require will depend on the skin problems that need to be treated. The way your skin responds to the treatment also affects this. Our esthetician will determine this after providing an initial consultation.

When it comes to downtime after the procedure, you should expect a minimal recovery time. We always suggest our clients allow themselves enough time for healing. People can resume their normal routine activities the very next day. Some of the post-procedure signs that some people experience may include:

  • Mild redness
  • Swelling at the point of insertion
  • Bruising

If swelling occurs, it should not last more than 48 hours. In some cases, the brushing may last up to two weeks.

We are led by Faye Pena, a fully qualified and experienced esthetician who is driven by the goal to provide our clients with customized skin care treatments.
