What is microneedling and how does it work?
Microneedling is a minimally invase aesthetic procedure that has become quie popular and for good reason. At Lahens Medical Center we use the Dermapen which is a device made up of multiple micro-needles. These micro-needles puncture the skin causing trauma and inflammation. This inflammation causes the body to produce more collagen. Sadly collagen slows down at the age of 20 and completely stops at age 30. Microneedling is a great way to increase collagen production and have healthier looking skin.

How will my first appointment look like?
You will first be evaluated by Dr.Garcia or Nathalie Marie (holistic esthetician) and if you are a good candidate you can start treatment on that same day.
Your skin will first be cleansed and then a numbing cream will be appplied and left on for at least thirty minutes. After that the numbing cream will be removed and the microneedling session will begin. Active ingredients and plant oils will be used to help the needles penetrate more easily and to help the skin look healtheir and brighter.
Is there any downtime?
No there is not. You will have to avoid the sun for a week and apply sunscreen every single day. You will also need to stop all actives and most skincare products for the first three days after treatment. Detailed instructions will be given after your first appointment.
How many treatments do I need?
Depending on the type of skin and the problem to be treated, between
3-5 sessions will be needed to achieve a notable improvement in the firmness and texture of the skin, and between 5-7 sessions in the case of scars.
