Dermablue is 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.
Microneedling with the collagen micro needling pen effectively treats the following:
• Tightens and lifts skin
• Minimizes acne scarring
• Reduces fine lines
• Decreases of photo-aging, dull skin, and poor texture
• Reduces stretch marks and body scars
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.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves creating tiny wounds on the skin’s surface using a device with small needles. This stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, resulting in smoother, firmer, and tighter skin.
During the treatment, a numbing cream is typically applied to the skin to minimize discomfort. The microneedling device is then passed over the skin, creating tiny punctures that trigger the body’s healing response. The treatment typically takes around 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area.
After the procedure, the skin may be red and slightly swollen, and patients are advised to avoid sun exposure and wear sunscreen. It’s recommended that patients undergo multiple sessions to achieve maximum results, typically spaced about 4-6 weeks apart. Overall, microneedling is a safe and effective treatment to improve skin texture, reduce scars, and diminish fine lines and wrinkles.
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.
Microneedling treatments are very individualized and are based on the number of treatments needed. We offer free consultations and may offer a discount based on the number of treatment areas you would like treated.
RF microneedling combines microneedling with the application of radiofrequency energy. This combination triggers even more significant collagen production, making it particularly effective for addressing skin laxity and deeper wrinkles.
