What is a MicroNeedling Procedure?A MicroNeedling procedure is a skin rejuvenation procedure that uses an FDA-approved SkinPen to creates hundreds of micro channels in the skin to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. The needle depth can be adjusted from .25 millimeters to 2 millimeters in order to accommodate different areas of the body and have minimal damage to skin layers. All of our MicroNeedling Procedures use a SkinPen Precision system which is an FDA- approved, medical tool to improve the skin’s appearance and minimize aging. Treatment lasts from 30 minutes to an hour based on area needing treatment.
How MicroNeedling WorksIt safely pierces the skin to trigger the body’s immune system to increase blood flow to that area and clear debris. The area is then flooded with rebuilding cells such as collagen and elastin. Finally, the pierced area is reformed with newer, healthier collagen creating a tightened effect on your skin.

While the thought of using a needle makes most people nervous, you can rest assured a MicroNeedling Procedure is a safe, efficient and relatively painless procedure. Since there is a topical anesthetic applied before the procedure, most patients express only a slight vibration that is less painful than getting your facial hair waxed. After the procedure, there will be a slight swelling or redness for two to four days, but this healing time can vary for each individual. At Med Studio, we also offer an application of Skinfuse RESCUE Calming Complex immediately following your procedure to soothe your skin, help reduce inflammation and maximize results.
