Micro-needling

Micro-Needling

A proven way to improve acne scars, hyper-pigmentation, and signs of aging.

At CVMA we use RejuvaPen, a specialized “pen” containing a cartridge with nine micro-needles. The tiny needles gently break up the tethering of scars and blemishes, resulting in less indentation and greater smoothness on the surface. This essentially gives the scar a second chance to repair itself – without surgery or lasers!
And you won’t feel like you’re on pins and needles before your appointment because the treatment itself isn’t painful and feels a bit like sandpaper going over the skin.


What is Micro-needling?

  • Minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that’s used to treat skin concerns via collagen production
  • May help those looking to reduce the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks
  • Microneedling is primarily used on the face.

Is Microneedling for me?

This treatment is most commonly used to combat acne scarring, but it can certainly be used for many different types of scarring on other parts of the body, like stretch marks.

It’s important to note that these scars are permanent and probably won’t completely disappear. Microneeling helps reduce them.

What Should I Expect?

We provide patients with a topical numbing cream to minimize discomfort.

The treatment itself feels a bit like sandpaper going over the skin. Some scarred areas can be more sensitive than others, so sometimes parts of the session will be less comfortable than others.

After the treatment, the treated area is likely to be sensitive. We recommend scheduling two days of downtime and staying out of the sun.

How Long Is Each Treatment?

Each treatment lasts about 20-30 minutes. We prescribe a topical numbing medicine for the patient to apply before the appointment. Then, when they get to the office, they’re already comfortable.

Microneedling allows us to apply antioxidants and growth factors into the top layers of skin.
