“What treatment would be best for treating acne scars?” “Is there a treatment for a more youthful complexion without dermal fillers?”
One thing we pride ourselves on here at Medrevive Medspa is the care we take in helping our clients “Revive their Beauty.” When we get asked what is the best treatment to improve the texture of skin, Collagen P.I.N. Microneedling is the first thing we recommend.
Using a device with an assortment of micro-needles, the procedure is designed to invoke the natural healing response in the skin by way of controlled micro injuries.
“Is it really effective for achieving more youthful skin?”
A clinical study found “4 microneedling sessions 1 month apart shows up to 400% increase in collagen and elastin deposition at 6 months. Collagen is a HUGE factor in anti aging; a key component in rejuvenating skin texture and suppleness. Our bodies stop producing collagen in our mid 20s, thus, it’s never too early to start a regimen of monthly (or bi monthly) treatments as a preventative plan. Remember, it is always easier to prevent than it is to reverse!As we age, the skin on our face is the first place we start noticing the decline in collagen production, giving way to wrinkles, expression lines and a change in texture.

What skin conditions does it treat besides texture?
In addition to skin texture, it also treats hyper pigmentation is a concern, from old acne, age spots or sun damage. Microneedling can definitely help to break up hyper pigmentation over time. The number of treatments needed to treat pigmentation varies per person and might need to be used in conjunction with an Intense Pulse Light (IPL) Photofacial, if the case is more severe.
Microneedling is not only a face treatment, but also good for other areas of the body. You can treat stretch marks as well! While there is no guarantee of complete removal, you can lessen the appearance with a series of treatments!
“Is it painful?”
Not at all! You apply a numbing agent before the start of the treatment to dull the sensation of pain. We’ve even have some clients fall asleep during the procedure saying it felt like a face massage! If you do not numb properly, you will be more sensitive in areas, which is why we recommend numbing every 15 min one hour prior to the treatment.
“How many treatments will I need?”
Everyone responds to treatment differently, but on average, to receive optimum results, we recommend 2-3 treatments 4-6 weeks apart to start. You can schedule a FREE consultation to receive a personalized treatment plan and see before and after pictures!
As you can see, there are multiple benefits to microneedling. It can be performed on both men and women to treat an array of skin issues. Call us today for more information on how to get started!
