Effectively treat lines, wrinkles, acne scars, large pores, & stretch marks

with Microneedling

Microneedling is a treatment that goes by many names – collagen induction therapy, dermal needling or just derma roller. Regardless of what you call it, our Denver clients walk away (generally with an extra pep in their step!), with more youthful, plumped skin, smoother texture and fewer open pores, and a reduction of scarring. 

 

DLS Perk: We offer a complimentary level one chemical peel or microdermabrasion during the treatment to enhance results.

Is Microneedling for you?

 

If you want to correct or remove fine lines, nourish your skin from the dry Denver weather, reducing pore size and lighten the appearance of acne scars or stretch marks, this is likely to be an effective treatment for you. Microneedling is also highly recommended for young professionals looking to maintain youthful skin and prevent early signs of aging.

 

Fractional laser treatment also improves the texture of skin, acne scars, fine lines and stretch marks, but fractional laser treatment is ideal for more aggressive and deeper lines and wrinkles around the mouth and eyes.  If you don’t need an aggressive treatment, dermal needling is a more cost-effective option for those on a budget. 

The Science behind Microneedling

 

Microneedling is a well-established treatment and has been conducted for over 30 years, clinically proven and tested. This is a treatment where sterile micro-needles are applied to the face to create what we call “micro-injuries” to the skin. This stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. As the needles are applied to the face they are also delivering products to help nourish and heal the skin. We believe that this treatment triggers collagen production like no other treatment can! 

The Difference Between Microneedling & Fractional Laser Treatment

 

When choosing the best treatment to help remove and reduce wrinkles it is best to understand the differences between Microneedling and Fractional Laser Treatment

Microneeding is:

  • Is good for lines, wrinkles and the full face
  • More budget friendly than Fractional Skin Resurfacing
  • Has similar results and benefits as Fractional Skin Resurfacing
  • Does not involve any heat injury which can make this treatment safer for darker skin tones
  • Treatment includes extra exfoliation
  • Uses needles
  • Requires numbing crème an hour before treatment
  • Downtime is 24 hours

Fractional Laser Treatment:

  • Is good for small sections of the face such as around the eyes and mouth and for stretch marks
  • Many clients believe the results with Fractional Laser Treatment are better than with Microneedling
  • Uses a laser
  • Is considered a bit more painful than Microneedling
  • Requires numbing crème an hour before treatment
  • Downtime is 2-4 days

Frequently Asked Questions for Dermal Needling

What is microneedling?

Microneedling, Collagen Induction Therapy, and Dermal Needling all refer to the same treatment. Some devices use a rolling pin and other use a stamping or rotary pen but all use small, sterile needles to create “micro-injuries” in the epidermis and dermis. This creates a healing response in the skin, stimulating collagen and elastin production as well as leaving the skin more even in texture.

What does mirconeedling treat?

Since we are able to adjust the depth and speed of the needles to suit your specific needs, microneedling can treat a variety of skin concerns including fine lines and wrinkles, pore size, scars, stretch marks, and acne scars.

Am I a candidate for microneedling?

We do not recommend microneedling if you have any active acne or breakouts in the area being treated. Since there may be pinpoint bleeding during treatment, it is not recommended for those who have any blood clotting disorders.

Microneedling vs. laser skin treatment: which is better?

Both microneedling and laser skin treatment are helping with the texture of the skin, treating acne scarring, fine lines, and stretch marks. They both give great results but each has their own pros and cons. One of the advantages of microneedling is that it creates no heat, meaning a shorter social downtime and decreased potential side effects for darker skin tones as compared to laser. The downside is that, depending on the area being treated, it may require more treatments than laser skin resurfacing. At Denver Laser Solutions we often combine the two treatments in a series to get the best of both worlds.

Does microneedling hurt?

Location and needle depth are indicative of intensity, for example, bony areas like the forehead are a little more tender compared to a fleshy area like the cheeks. However, the procedure is said to be well tolerated; feeling like a mild prickling sensation. But for the purpose of patient comfort, your practitioner will apply a topical anesthetic to your skin prior to treatment to reduce any pain and discomfort.

What is a microneedling treatment like?

Once the numbing cream is removed, we apply a proprietary growth-factor serum. This serum gets pushed into the skin via the microneedle device and provides a renewing and nourishing effect. Adjusting the depth to the area being treated, we treat the skin in multiple passes over the entire area, and then “spot treating” certain areas of concern.

What should I expect after a microneedling treatment?

Immediately after treatment, your skin will feel warm and tight, almost akin to a sunburn. This feeling is temporary and usually subsides within a couple hours. We recommend not using any makeup for 24 hours. A warm, flushed appearance is common and can last a day or two. Avoid exfoliating scrubs, alpha hydroxy acids, and any prescription retinoids in the area for at least three days. The collagen remodeling process takes time but most clients will start to see results 2-4 weeks following treatment.

Does microneedling help acne scars?

Yes, it does. It is the more affordable but less aggressive option. For a more aggressive approach consider fractional laser treatment.

Does microneedling help stretch marks?

Yes, it does although fractional laser treatment is preferred for best results.

How many microneedling treatments will I need?

Results are cumulative so with each treatment, the area will improve, but we recommend a series of 3-6 treatments for best results. At Denver Laser Solutions we often mix several technologies and treatments to target your specific needs, so we highly recommend coming in for a complimentary consultation.

Can I microneedle at home?

Yes, you can. There are a lot of options available. Options available for home use tend to be a .5mm depth gauge. This means they are good for product absorption, but they do not go as deep as our in office technology does, approximately 2mm in depth, which is better for increase collagen production and remodeling.
