Microneedling Q & A

What is micro-needling?

At Balcones Dermatology and Aesthetics, our aesthetician uses the SkinPen® by Bellus Medical, the first Microneedling device cleared by the FDA (Food & Drug Administration), to improve the appearance of your skin. This innovative device uses automated micro-needling, sometimes called collagen induction therapy (CIT).

This FDA-approved technique is safe for all skin types and can improve the appearance of:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles

  • Acne and traumatic scars

  • Stretch marks

  • Dark spots

  • Melasma

How does micro-needling work?

When you see our licensed medical aesthetician for skin rejuvenation, she creates a personalized treatment plan to address your skincare needs. Depending on your specific goals and issues, she may recommend micro-needling.

Using the SkinPen® Microneedling, our highly qualified aestheticians,  creates micro-injuries with the 12 sterile micro needles in the device. While these injuries don’t hurt, they do spur your body’s natural healing response. Using the SkinPen® device, Olivia Berry creates micro-injuries in the skin with sterile surgical-grade steel needles. In turn, this spurs the body’s natural healing response.

As part of this healing, the body naturally breaks down dark spots — including those from pigmentation and scarring — and promotes an increase in collagen production. This improves your skin’s tone and texture with little downtime.

In some cases, we may recommend using a serum before micro-needling treatment. This can promote your skin’s healing and enhance the effectiveness of the procedure. Several topical options are available with Microneedling, including SkinPen® Lift HG®, Platelet-Rich Plasma, or a customized chemical peel to be applied over the open micro-channels.
