Micro Needling in Austin, TX

At Door to Door MedSpa, Dr. Claudia Legere offers Micro Needling to the residents of Austin, Texas and the surrounding communities desiring skin rejuvenation.

The Micro Needling Procedure

Micro Needling is used for skin rejuvenation, skin tightening and is a more cost-effective means to reduce stretch marks and cellulite than lasers. This at-home procedure can provide a more youthful appearance by reducing acne, pigmentation spots, while smoothing and re-texturize your skin. Additionally, it can be used to improve scarring, including acne scars, keloids and surgical scars.

 

The Micro Needling procedure begins with the application of numbing cream and/or cooling gel. After that, a device known as a Dermapen® will be used over the skin. A Dermapen® is an instrument which contains dozens of very fine needles, which create several very small puncture wounds across your skin. As a part of the healing process, your body produces more collagen and elastin, thereby helping your skin become firmer and younger-looking naturally.

Anywhere from three to five treatments may be needed in order to achieve maximum results. Your skin will begin looking and feeling firmer approximately six to eight weeks after the first treatment, as this is when new collagen will start to form. Improvement can be expected for up to a year afterwards.

Are you a Candidate for Micro Needling?

Since the Dermapen® device is minimally invasive, nearly anyone can undergo a Micro Needling procedure without worrying about harmful side effects. Even so, anyone with open sores or skin infections should put off having a Micro Needling procedure, until the condition has healed.

Micro Needling Recovery

Before-After-2-Acne ScarsImmediately after a Micro Needling procedure with the Dermapen® device, your skin may appear red and irritated. This normally goes away on its own over the next couple of days, so by the third day, you should not notice any redness or irritation at all.
