What is microneedling?

Microneedling is one of the most popular treatments at our office.  Many people are mystified by microneedling or scared to be punctured by needles on their face.  Microneedling is very safe with minimal downtime and painless.  Birchbox came to our spa recently to investigate microneedling (Youtube video).  

Microneedling is also known as collagen induction therapy

Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, is minimally invasive.  It helps to rejuvenate the skin by puncturing the top layer of your skin with tiny holes, therefore initiating your body to self-repair.  As a result, your collagen production and elastin production will increase, resulting in more radiant and youthful skin.  Microneedling is great for reducing the appearance of acne scars, pores, and stretchmark.  Some offices combine microneedling with PRP, or plasma rich plasma.  PRP is a highly concentrated serum of vitamins derived from drawing your blood prior to treatment.  Cane + Austin Medi Spa does not currently combine PRP with microneedling. 

What microneedling instruments do you use at Cane + Austin?

Some offices use the derma pen or Skin Pen for microneedling, we use a machine called pollagen legend made by lumenis.  It combines microneedling with radiofrequency.  While microneedling helps improve skin texture issues, radiofrequency helps tighten your skin.  Microneedling with radiofrequency is a very nice combination, resulting in beautiful clear skin.
