What is Medical Micro-Needling and is it safe?
Dr. Slater has 30 years experience as a physician and is double board certified. He and his qualified staff use an electric skin needling device made especially for this purpose. The device is sterile and safe. The pen is studded with many very fine needles. The pen was designed for micro-needling to break down old scar tissue, to create micro-damage and to stimulate skin cells to proliferate. This cell multiplication results in the formation of new tissue layers and stimulates elastin and collagen fibers to grow. The formation of new capillaries is important for improved blood supply. The Micro-Pen utilized to perform treatments are improved upon often and, depending on the latest medical requirements, Dr. Slater uses the latest technology and upgrades devices to the latest medical standards. Dr. Slater adheres to current medical protocols, so advertising a specific Micro-pen is not in the patient’s best interest. 2017 brings new exciting products along with improved medical equipment and improved devices. Ask Dr. Slater which device he recommends for 2017.

How Does Medical Micro Needling Work?
Our medical Esthetician glides the pen along the skin, penetrating the upper layers of the skin to create numerous micro holes, this prompts the body to respond by activating the healing process, which in turn causes the increase of collagen production and elastin fibers. This is the very same thing we need for our skin to remain looking YOUTHFUL. The healing response to the micro wounds causes the skin to appear plump and healthy. Micro-needling is excellent for reducing the appearance of scars, fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles and visibly decreases pore size.
What Does the Procedure Involve?
The skin is cleaned and numbing cream is applied to assure no discomfort. For better results, we use MicroGlide GF, New Youth Skin Care, and various other serums. Platelet Rich Plasma and Amnion is another option. Ask Dr. Slater which Serum or Growth Factor Treatment is the perfect one for you.
What Will I Look Like After Treatment?
Most people will experience slight redness and mild swelling in a similar way as mild sunburn for 24-48 hours and there may be minimal pinpoint bleeding. Within a week or two, you will notice that your skin is smoother and more radiant looking but the full effects won’t be seen until a few months later. Nothing to worry about, you can wear makeup the next day and yes you can work. For men, the protocol is the same minus the makeup of course. Most people look like they have a slight tan or sun-kissed.
What Downtime is Required After Medical Micro-Needling Treatment?
None, the inflammatory reaction of the skin is extremely short and fades significantly within hours from redness to pinkish that may last for 12 to 48 hours. In order to reduce visible redness, we recommend hyaluronic acid after the procedure, and to protect the skin with zinc based sunblock. The use of mineral makeup is recommended after the treatment. You can apply makeup within 12 hours of the procedure.
