Learn all about microneedling
Microneedling is a specialized treatment available at Cassie Lane Aesthetics of Richmond, Virginia, that allows your body to heal itself with a unique process known as collagen induction therapy. With a handheld device that looks like a pen, our providers will create micro-injuries across the skin. The pen has thin needles that puncture the skin’s upper surface to help your body produce healing factors and improve blood flow to the skin. That boosts the skin’s natural collagen production through the skin’s natural healing process, allowing for skin transformation with time.
What can microneedling help treat?
Microneedling is best for:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Poor skin texture and tone
- Hyperpigmentation treatment
- Stretch marks
- Large pore size
- Acne and acne scar treatment
- Hair loss and thinning
Is microneedling painful?
Cassie Lane and her team of aestheticians want patients to feel comfortable during their treatments. With this in mind, we provide a special topical anesthetic cream before performing the procedure to ensure that patients don’t experience much discomfort while undergoing the microneedling treatment session.
How long does microneedling take?
We evaluate the patient, cleanse the skin, and perform the treatment in approximately one hour or less. We find that many patients who are treating just the facial area can have their procedure completed during their lunch hour and return to work with no downtime or interruption to their daily activities.
How often do I need to have microneedling done?
To maintain the results of microneedling, it is encouraged that patients have the treatment done monthly for four months, then as recommended afterward. The best results will happen within the first few months and then be maintained with regular treatments at Cassie Lanes Aesthetics.
