Microneedling is a minimally invasive medical therapy used to treat hyperpigmentation, scars, fine lines, and other signs of aging.
The team at Earmark! uses a state of the art device, the MD Pen, to activate the body’s natural healing mechanisms. The MD pen uses tiny needles to penetrate the skin, creating microtrauma and stimulating your own body’s regenerative properties.
Don’t let the word “needle” scare you off — microneedling is minimally invasive and can be done with a numbing cream to avoid discomfort. Full results mature at about 6-12 weeks.
Microneedling can be used to target many imperfections on the skin of your face and other areas of your body, as well as for maintenance and repair. A microneedling session can reduce or eliminate the appearance of:
Microneedling makes your skin smoother and more even-toned. For the best results, you may need to schedule multiple sessions at Earmark!
During your microneedling session at Earmark!, your provider gives you a topical anesthetic that you can apply to your face, scalp, or any other treatment areas to ensure your comfort. Once your skin is numb enough, your provider cleanses your skin and begins the treatment.
At first, it may sound counterintuitive to prick your skin with tiny needles to improve it. Microneedling stimulates your body’s natural healing process to give your skin new life.
Your body produces a substance called collagen that gives your skin structure and helps it heal when you’re injured. The tiny microneedling pricks stimulate your body’s production of collagen, making your skin plump, smooth, and damage-free.
Microneedling is very safe when performed by an experienced medical provider. If you’re pregnant, have a skin condition, or recently had radiation therapy, the team at Earmark! may guide you to another treatment that is safer for you.
In the days following your microneedling session, you might experience some light skin peeling or redness, but these side effects should go fade over time.
After taking note of your medical history, the team at Earmark! determines if it’s safe for you. Then, you’ll be instructed on how to prepare for your treatment for the best results.
