Microneedling is a non-invasive anti-aging procedure. It is the latest in collagen induction therapy. Polished chose to use the MD Pen, the latest innovation in fractional micro-needling. MD Pen revitalizes the skin by initiating cellular regeneration and aiding in the absorption of topical serums. The procedure reduces scarring, corrects fine lines and improves surface texture. The MD Pen is significantly better than any of the roller style microneedling tools.
What Does Microneedling do?
By rejuvenating skin cells, micro-needling helps lift and tighten facial tissues; this will diminish wrinkles, photo-aging and decrease pore size. The treatment is significantly effective to reduce stretch marks and acne scars. The MD Pen rapidly creates a pattern of micro-channels in the treatment area. These micro channels significantly increase the production of collagen and elastin thus leaving your skin smoother, fresher, and more uniform. The micro-channels also enhance the skin’s ability to absorb medical grade topical serums, like anti-aging serums and skin lighteners when applied during or immediately after the treatment.

What is the down time with microneedling?
There is mimimal downtime with microneedling. The treated area will be pink or red for up to 48 hours; you will feel sensitive, similar to a sunburn. After 2-3 days you should expect some dryness and flaking. After a few days you will have a refreshed and radiant complexion!
What can I expect during my microneedling treatment?
First, your esthetician will apply a medical grade numbing cream to ensure comfort during the procedure. You will rest for approximately 20 minutes so the numbing cream penetrates your skin to work properly. Next, the esthetician will clean the excess numbing cream, then they will begin your treatment. The procedure itself only takes 20-30 minutes. Following your procedure the esthetician will apply a cooling mask and tissue repair cream. Should you choose, additional serum is available for an upcharge. Your esthetician will personalize a regime of serums, creams and SPF for at home use to enhance your results.
To get best results a series of 4-8 treatments is strongly recommended. Sessions are spaced 2-6 weeks apart depending upon the area of treatment.
NOTE: It is essential to drink plenty of water and follow the skin care regimen prescribed by your technician.
