Chevy Chase Facial Plastic Surgery is proud to offer you the two best micro needling devices on the market; the DermaPen3® and the Eclipse MicroPen™. Micro needling stimulates collagen in the skin, so many refer to it as collagen induction therapy.
Micro needling is an effective treatment option for all skin types and has shown great clinical results in addressing:
- acne scars
- stretch marks
- promotion of wound healing
Micro needling provides benefits beyond surface level results because it allows rejuvenating agents to penetrate deeper in the dermal layer with almost no downtime. It has proven to be as effective as Fractional Laser Therapy, IPL, and chemical peels. What is great is that the downtime is minimal with this treatment. The skin appears to be glowing soon after the treatment and improves with subsequent procedures. We like to pair the treatments with our skin products that contain active growth factors such as the SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum or the Environ Colostrum for optimal results.
The fractional micro delivery provides unparalleled collagen induction into the epidermis and dermis. These micro injuries to the skin encourage and harness the power of the body’s innate ability to re-grow and repair the skin through the physiology of collagen induction. Six treatments are recommended over a 6 month period. Most patients continue with the treatments as part of their regular skin care routine.
Micro needling is great when combined with other therapies for improved results. When combined with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), the improvement is tremendous. The trifecta of PRP, Micro needling with the MicroPen and Radiofrequency treatment (Skinfinity™), which is part of the TimeMachine™ procedure, delivers exceptional results for acne scars and wrinkles. A series of treatments is recommended.
