For deep wrinkles, advanced photo- aging, stretch marks or acne scars, a series of 6-8 sessions spaced about 4 weeks apart is suggested for optimal results. After the initial series microneedling can be done once per year as a skin maintenance procedure.
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles.This device is used to create tiny punctures in the skin to form a controlled skin injury. Each puncture creates a micro-channel that triggers the body's natural wound healing process to produce new collagen and elastin, the key to youthful looking skin .
Through this process you will see results such as an improvement in skin texture and firmness, reduction in scars (including acne scars), softer wrinkles and fine lines, evening in hyper-pigmentation, smaller pore size, and less visible stretch marks.
Microneedling is a great option for those who are interested in laser skin resurfacing but looking for an option with little to no down time. It is not a painful procedure and it provides great results at an affordable price.
Microneedling can be safely performed on all skin types and all skin colors. It can also treat any sensitive and fragile areas that are difficult to treat with other procedures, including near the eyes, the neck, and the back of the hands. It can also be done on any area that you have stretch marks you wish to make less visible
As we age our skins' natural production of collagen and elastin starts to slow down, resulting in wrinkles, crows feet, and fine lines. Microneedling stimulates the body's natural healing processes and helps produce collagen, which tightens the skin to reduce these signs of aging.
Because microneedling creates micro-channels on the surface layer of skin, any serums or other products used during and after the treatment will be able to penetrate deep into the dermis, allowing your skin to benefit from the full effects of any product. When applying product normally, only about 4%-8% actually penetrates into your skin, during and right after microneedling this number jumps to an impressive 80%, this is why our treatment includes the application of growth serums to make the session as effective and rejuvenating as possible.
At Sarah Laser Center & Medspa we have the resources and properly trained medical estheticians to ensure that your microneedling experience is safe, comfortable, effective, and as pain-free as possible. We provide a clean, sterile environment that drastically reduces any possible risks. A topical numbing cream will be applied prior to any treatment to make your experience a pleasant, relaxing one.

The collagen production promoted by microneedling can improve the look of skin in many more ways than just reducing wrinkles. It can also reverse sun damage and discoloration, including the hyperpigmentation that comes with melasma.
