Microneedling

An innovative skin rejuvenation treatment, microneedling by SkinPen is a form of Collagen Induction Therapy that significantly improves the appearance of sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and stretch marks with little downtime.

Fast and minimally invasive, it stimulates the natural production of new collagen and elastin in the skin. The repair process begins almost immediately.

How Does Microneedling Work?

Safe and minimally invasive, microneedling allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair process by creating precise, micro-injuries (tiny punctures)  in the skin.

We utilize the FDA-cleared SkinPen device at Viva Day Spa. The SkinPen is gently pressed against your skin and uses straight needles to penetrate at a 90 degree angle.

This stimulates your skin’s natural ability to heal by producing new collagen and elastin fibers, encouraging your skin to look and feel healthier. There is no tissue destruction with micro needling. The small channels in the epidermis close very quickly and the skin begins a healing response of producing new collagen and elastin right away.

What Are The Benefits of Microneedling?

This skin rejuvenation treatment is safe and effective for all parts of the body including the face, neck, and décolletage (the area that of your chest that is exposed when you wear a top with a lower neckline). It helps improve:

  • Sun damage (sun spots)
  • Age and brown spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Stretch marks
  • Acne scarring
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Large pore size

What Does Microneedling Feel Like? Does It Hurt?

Your skin care specialist will apply a numbing cream prior to your treatment to minimize any discomfort. The high-speed motor of the SkinPen device causes needle penetration to occur very quickly.

The sensation you will experience is often described by our clients as feeling like sandpaper or a cat’s tongue. Scar treatment with microneedling requires deeper penetration into the nerve space, which can cause discomfort.

After the numbing cream wears off, you’ll feel like you have a sunburn. This usually only lasts for 24 hours.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

It depends on the health of your skin and your desired results. For optimal outcomes, we recommend a series of 3 microneedling treatments spaced approximately 4 weeks apart.

Your medical spa skincare expert will help you develop a custom treatment plan, along with a maintenance plan to help you maintain the rejuvenating effects.

When Will I See Results?

The healing process begins almost immediately. Your skin will look smoother and more radiant in a week following your microneedling treatment at Viva Day Spa. Results are gradual, with incremental improvement with each microneedling session.

What Will I Look Like After Microneedling?

You’ll look like you have a sunburn following treatment. Most of our clients take the day off and return to work the following day.

For deeper treatments, redness may persist for several days or a week, and you may also experience slight pinprick bleeding that will stop immediately. For special events, we recommend planning for 7 days for a complete recovery.

Is Microneedling Safe For All Skin Types?

Yes, microneedling is safe and effective for people of all skin types and colors without risk of post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation.
