Microneedling

Step 1 of 2

Microneedling

Microneedling provides fast, effective skin rejuvenation without surgery. This non-invasive treatment option stimulates the body’s natural healing abilities to create a restored appearance to the skin. At Aesthetic Medicine, we strive to provide our Portland clients with the latest innovations in cosmetic procedures that provide noticeable results with minimal discomfort and risk, and microneedling fits that goal well.

What Is Microneedling?

Your body has a natural healing capacity that is quite effective. Microneedling taps into this, stimulating the healing response for improvement in the look and texture of the skin. Microneedling involves a handheld device that uses tiny needles to lightly puncture the skin. Not all microneedling is made the same, here at Aesthetic Medicine, we use Morpheus. The Morpheus has different depths it can go which is determined by desired result. Not only does the Morpheus tighten, it can also treat unwanted fat in the face. The microneedling device is composed of 24 tiny needles that penetrate the tissue. The body responds to these tiny pinpricks by increasing elastin and collagen production while also increasing blood supply to the area. The result is better tone and texture as the body also heals flaws in the skin, limiting the look of fine lines, scarring, and redness.

Does Microneedling Hurt?

The small size of the needles used in microneedling and the fact that they do not penetrate very far into the skin means the procedure should not hurt. At Aesthetic Medicine, we use a medical-grade dermal pen to properly control treatment depth and safety. You can achieve excellent rejuvenating results without discomfort or downtime with microneedling treatment.

How Quickly Does Microneedling Work?

Most of our Portland patients report a healthy glow to their skin immediately after treatment. Because the process stimulates the body’s natural healing capabilities, complete healing will take some time. You will need follow-up treatments for the best results, and the number of treatments needed will depend on how extensive your treatment needs are. Dr. Darm will help you plan for the right number of follow-up appointments.
