What is Microneedling

A microneedling treatment involves using extremely fine needles to puncture thousands of micro-channels into the skin. These micro-injuries trigger the skin’s natural healing response by stimulating the release of growth factors, kickstarting the production of collagen and elastin, the building blocks of healthy, youthful skin. Microneedling also breaks apart unwanted scar tissue and collagen bundles in the superficial layer of the skin that contribute to various skin concerns. This improves the condition of blemishes such as acne scars, uneven texture and even stretch marks.

Unlike at-home treatments such as the popular dermal roller, each StrataPen treatment uses a disposable tip containing extremely fine, surgical-grade needles, reducing the likelihood of contamination and infection. The device is also capable of much more consistent delivery of vertical needle penetration into the skin. This consistency stands in contrast to dermal rollers, which drag across the skin and result in tearing wounds and uneven treatment.

A medical-grade microneedling treatment at Dermatology Solutions of Washington can also deliver more collagen-boosting results, as our device is fully adjustable and can be customized for your skin condition and needs.

When Will I See Results

In approximately four to six weeks. This triggers your body’s wound healing processes to heal your micro wounds immediately. However, the most dramatic results will not be visible until four to six weeks after treatment. It takes roughly this long for your body to create new, strong, healthy collagen.

What Areas and Skin Conditions Can Microneedling Treat?

Microneedling is an incredibly versatile procedure that can greatly improve a variety of skin concerns. By triggering the body’s natural wound response and initiating collagen and elastin growth, microneedling produces newer, healthier skin. Most mild to moderate skin concerns will be improved as new skin cells come to the surface to replace the old for a more youthful, radiant complexion.
Some of the conditions StrataPen microneedling can address include:
A StrataPen microneedling treatment can be performed on almost all areas of the body that could use a boost of collagen and elastin, with the face, neck and decollete being the most common treatment areas. Patients concerned about stretch marks on the abdomen and thighs can also benefit from a series of microneedling treatments. Other areas of the body that StrataPen Microneedling can treat include:

RF Microneedling

New Potenza RF Microneedling with Tiger Tip™ technology performs like no topical (or even filler) ever could, actually stimulating your body’s collagen and elastin levels to treat the advanced signs of aging. Skin looks younger, firmer.* And texture, tone and clarity? Smoothed, brightened and improved.

What to Expect

The Potenza RF microneedling treatment uses ultrafine needles and heat to penetrate the top layer of the skin and trigger the body’s natural healing process to regenerate new collagen and elastin. The number of passes and penetration to the skin will vary by patient and affect the results seen. The elastin and collagen-building typically takes place 4-6 weeks after treatment, with optimal results usually seen at 12 weeks after the last treatment.
