Microneedling is an excellent way to treat common signs of aging, including minimizing the appearance of wrinkles, acne or surgical scars, stretch marks, and pores. As the name implies, microscopic needles stimulate your body’s natural healing process and reveal smoother, younger-looking skin. Excellent for both face and neck, BodyLase® provides microneedling to patients in both our Raleigh, NC and Cary, NC med spas.
Microneedling at BodyLase® is done with SkinPen®—the first FDA-cleared microneedling device. In a Crown Aesthetics survey, 94% of SkinPen clients noticed an improvement in fine lines and wrinkles one month post-treatment and 90% would recommend the treatment to friends and family.
For clients looking to super charge your collagen production, check out Morpheus8—our powerhouse microneedling solution that adds radiofrequency (RF) to penetrate deeper into the skin.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling, also known as micro-channeling, is a form of non-surgical skin treatment creating a controlled series of punctures in the skin.
These micro-injuries trigger your body’s innate healing properties, including collagen production. As a result, the skin regenerates and rebuilds itself, resulting in skin that is firmer, smoother, and healthier.
At BodyLase, we offer both traditional microneedling as well as Morpheus8, an advanced treatment that combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy, which penetrates deeper into the skin, further enhancing collagen production for an even better result.
Am I a Good Candidate for Microneedling?
You may be a good candidate for microneedling if:
- You are looking to address skin issues such as acne scarring, collagen loss, stretch marks, enlarged pores, or wrinkles
- You are in good health overall, without any wound healing impairments
- You can avoid direct sunlight for at least 10 days following treatment
- You can avoid make-up application for at least 12 hours post-visit
The best way to determine if microneedling is right for you is to come in for a consultation with our experienced consultants.
The Microneedling Process
For your microneedling treatments, your provider will administer a topical numbing cream prior to beginning, enhancing your comfort throughout the procedure.
