Microneedling is a collagen stimulation therapy that repairs, rebuilds and rejuvenates the upper skin without removing or abrading the outer layers of skin. It is a safe, effective medical procedure when under the direction of a trained physician skin expert. Dr. Hubbell will evaluate each prospective patient and recommend a customized treatment plan. Dr. Hubbell supervises and certifies estheticians utilizing the most advanced microneedling tools and training in the latest techniques — all for your maximum results.
100% NATURAL AND LASTING HEALING
Microneedling is a technique in which micro perforations are created in the dermis layer of the skin. These micro perforations stimulate growth factors causing the skin to naturally repair by producing collagen and elastin. This process of skin repair leaves the skin looking firmer and healthier through improved blood flow and allows for better absorption of physician-grade skincare products.
MicroNeedling is most commonly used:
- To reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- To improve scars, including acne scarring
- To minimize pore size
- To improve the appearance of stretchmarks
- To tighten and rejuvenate skin
Treatments can be tailored according to skin types and conditions by altering the device, needle depth and frequency of treatments. Microneedling can be performed anytime during the year and is the preferred option during the warmer months when there is increased sun exposure which prevents many laser skin treatment and chemical peel options. Other microneedling benefits include minimal downtime, low risk and little to no discomfort.
PROTECT AND EXTEND THE RESULTS OF YOUR MICRONEEDLING TREATMENTS
To protect and extend the results of your microneedling procedure, Dr. Hubbell recommends post-treatment physician-grade skin care products. A few of these products may include:
- TNS Recovery Complex—a growth factor blend to help improve appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, skin tone and texture.
- Hydrating Complex—a specially-designed serum that provides a daily hydration boost to moisturizer.
- Daily Defense Sunscreen SPF 30—this sunscreen is suitable for nearly all skin types. It is gentle enough for sensitive and post-procedure skin, offering broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection.
Who can perform Microneedling?
Microneedling is a safe, effective medical procedure when supervised by a trained physician skin expert. A consultation with a board-certified aesthetic dermatologist to evaluate your skin and determine if you are a candidate for this procedure is the first step. Our estheticians are trained and supervised by Dr. Hubbell to perform the service.
