Los Angeles Microneedling

Collagen Induction Therapy Revealing Gorgeous, Glowing Skin

Microneedling is a safe, nonsurgical treatment that is becoming increasingly popular as a skin rejuvenation service. Also known as Collagen Inductory Therapy, microneedling involves running a device with multiple small, sterile needles over the skin. My Aesthetic Doctor, Dr. Fakhre uses the ‘Dermapen’.

Microneedling is often used to treat:

  • Acne scars
  • Fine  lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Large pores
  • Sun spots
  • Skin discoloration
  • Stretch marks

Microneedling involves puncturing the skin many times. While it is safe, it should only be performed by a trained and certified professional. At My Aesthetic Doctor, board-certified physician Dr. Elham Fakhre, MD personally administers every treatment. You can trust that you will be in good hands with our experienced team.

How Does Microneedling Work?

The idea behind microneedling is that it can stimulate collagen and skin production by damaging the existing, marked skin. The new skin produced should be smoother, firmer, and more toned. Collagen is a protein naturally produced in the body. It serves many purposes, including serving as the building block for skin, tendons, and connective tissues.

By damaging skin that is marked with acne scars, large pores, age spots, and facial lines, microneedling sends signals to the body that stimulate collagen production. Our bodies are designed to be energy efficient, so they typically don’t respond to minor cosmetic damages. This is why microneedling can serve as the “kick” your body needs to start repairing damaged skin.

Aftercare

The thought of having needles puncture your skin over and over may sound like a painful experience, but the needles are very small and pain-numbing agents are applied to the treatment area beforehand. Most patients only experience mild discomfort.

Your skin will be sensitive for several days after treatment, but you should be able to carry on with your day-to-day life as normal. However, you should take care to keep your skin safe and apply sunscreen anytime you need to go outside. Also, keep in mind that your face will be red for a few days after receiving treatment. Thankfully, the skin heals quickly and the results of your treatment should become apparent in only a couple of weeks. Microneedling is often done in conjunction with PRP therapy to speed up the healing process.
