What is Microneedling Facial?
Microneedling Facial is a minimaly invasive rejuventation procedure that stimulates collagen, it is a great addition to your skincare routine. Here at Re3 Healing Aesthetic and Wellness we use a physician-grade, FDA- cleared microneedling facial device called the SkinPen. The SkinPen contains fine needles used to minimally puncture the skin and create a controlled skin injury. In these tiny punctures, a channel is created that triggers the body to fill these microscopic wounds by stimulating collagen production!

What should I expect during treatment?
This procedure requires little to no downtime and can be customized to go deeper into the skin where damage requires a more aggressive approach to treatment. The forehead and bridge of the nose tend to be the most sensitive areas, but for the most part, you’ll just feel small vibrations and find this treatment very comfortable. Topical numbing is provided during your procedure, so you won’t feel the actual needles.
After the treatment is over, your face will be pink or red (comparable to a slight sunburn) and you may want to lie low the rest of the day. By the following morning, you can return to your routine and use a gentle cleanser, SPF and even apply a little makeup if you wish! Usually, multiple treatments are necessary to achieve the best results with Microneedling Facial. The number of sessions you will need depends on your skin condition, and one of our Providers will create a treatment plan tailored specifically for you. Three or four treatments are usually recommended for mild to moderate acne scarring, whereas deeper scars and stretch marks may require five or more treatments!
