At Dermablue, we are Asheville’s premier provider of medical grade microneedling treatments. Collagen Pen is an innovative microneedling treatment that rapidly creates a pattern of micro channels in the treatment area. These channels significantly increase the production of collagen and elastin leaving the skin smoother, fresher, and more uniform. The micro channels also enhance the skin’s ability to absorb medical grade topicals or PRP when applied during or immediately after treatment. Medical grade microneedling is superior to home skin rollers or dermaroller treatments.
What conditions does Microneedling treat?
Collagen micro needling pen effectively treats the following:
• Microneedle Pen tightens and lifts skin
• Minimize acne scarring
• Reduction of fine lines
• Decrease of photo-aging, dull skin, and poor texture
• Reduction of stretch marks and body scars
How does Microneedling Work?
Prior to microneedle pen treatment a topical numbing cream will be applied. Once the microneedling treatment begins, the technician will glide the Collagen Pen across the skin. Micro needle pen treatment sensations can vary but is most often described as light sand paper moving across the skin. There is a possibility of some pinpoint bleeding during the treatment. The treatment generally takes anywhere from 30-45 minutes, depending on the treatment area. After your treatment you will leave on the PRP or Hyaluronic acid for 3 hours. Patients generally avoid activities post-procedure. Your skin may be sensitive and red, similar to a moderate sunburn, for 12-24 hours. It is important to stay well hydrated after treatments and carefully follow a skin regimen recommended by your technician.
What results can I expect from Microneedling?
This procedure is relatively painless and requires no time off from your daily events. Best paired with the Collagen Pen for even greater results, the number of treatments depends on the skin ailment you are treating. Treatments are generally spaced 4 weeks apart and maintenance is done 2-4 times yearly. At Dermablue, we consistently are amazed with the results on fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks and acne scarring. Overall, the majority of patients see significant results.
