Tighten, Lift, and Rejuvenate

Microneedling is one of the buzziest procedures since it touts incredible anti-aging benefits such as erasing fine lines, softening the appearance of scars, and can even tighten lax skin. You may benefit from this minimally invasive treatment if your skin has a prematurely aged appearance, textural issues, post-acne marks, stretch marks, or hyperpigmentation.

How does Dermapen Microneedling work?

The Dermapen™ is the original and best known member of the Dermapen™ family.

Comprised of two components, the Dermapen is comprised of an electric handpiece that connects to a power source ensures stability and consistency, and a disposable needle tip equipped with 12 minuscule needles. Once the needle tip is securely attached to the handpiece, the Dermapen is primed for action.

Harnessing the power of revolutionary AOVN™ technology, the internal motor of the Dermapen™ drives the needles in the Dermapen Tip to oscillate at an impressive rate of approximately 110 revolutions per second. Upon contact with the skin, these needles create tiny punctures, inducing controlled micro-trauma. This stimulates an immune response and triggers the production of fresh, healthy collagen. Moreover, the punctures serve as micro-channels, facilitating the deep penetration of topical nutrients utilized during the treatment, maximizing their efficacy.

Additional Reading

Due to its rapid oscillation, the Dermapen™ effortlessly glides across the skin without snagging or causing any dermal tearing. This compact and user-friendly device can yield comparable, if not superior, results to fractional lasers, all while minimizing the risks of hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, and other side effects associated with ablative heat-based treatments. The Dermapen™ pioneered micro-needling systems worldwide, becoming the go-to choice for practitioners and the most sought-after automated needling treatment among the general public. Furthermore, being the original has allowed us to continuously receive valuable feedback from practitioners across the globe. This feedback has enabled us to identify what our clients loved about the device and identify areas for improvement.

We have taken this feedback and incorporated it into our latest product, the Dermapen 3™. By combining all the strengths of our previous devices while addressing their limitations, we have created an automated device that surpasses dermal rollers, dermal stamps, and various other automated needling devices. With the Dermapen 3™, over 1,300 micro-holes can be created in the skin per second, thanks to its 12 needle points and a more powerful, smoother, and robust motor capable of achieving nearly 110 revolutions per second (108 revs per second, to be precise) at its highest setting. The depth of penetration can be adjusted from 0 to 2.5 mm, accommodating any area of the body and face. Leveraging the superior AOVN™ technology, the Dermapen 3™ ensures seamless operation and optimal outcomes, without any drag or resistance.

What is Secret Pro RF Microneedling?

Secret RF is a two-in-one skin rejuvenation device that combines microneedling with the powerful effects of radiofrequency heat. Together, they go further to brighten, tighten, and improve textural irregularities such as scarring, fine wrinkles, and stretch marks.

How does Secret Pro RF Microneedling work?

Secret RF awakens the skin’s ability to produce collagen. It works by simultaneously applying radiofrequency energy and fine needles into the dermis. The heat generated by the RF turbocharges collagen production, while the microneedles stimulate a natural repair process within the skin. The device settings are fully customizable, allowing us to target your skin concerns as precisely as possible.

Benefits of Microneedling

Microneedling options such as Dermapen and SecretRF can reverse the visible effects of aging by stimulating fresh, new collagen. These treatments help the skin appear radically firmer, smoother, and younger-looking, all without the risks and downtime of surgery. The controlled micro-damage also helps to address a range of tonality concerns, such as acne scars and hyperpigmentation, allowing patients to look revitalized and feel more confident. Our clients love how easy and convenient it is to revive tired, aging skin through this minimally invasive treatment. In the hands of our masterful clinicians, the results are simply breathtaking. Best of all, the recovery time is minimal, so you can return to doing what you love sooner.

What can Microneedling do for me?

Our Northern Virginia microneedling services are an excellent way to:

  • Brighten dull skin
  • Refine acne scars
  • Soften fine lines and wrinkles
  • Boost natural collagen production
  • Erase hyperpigmentation and dark spots
  • Help the skin appear smoother and tighter
  • Diminish the appearance of stretch marks (striae)

Am I a candidate for Microneedling?

Microneedling can effectively rejuvenate nearly all skin types and tones. Anyone looking to accomplish firmer, smoother, even-toned skin may be eligible.

There are only a few instances when microneedling may not be appropriate. Patients with clotting or bleeding disorders, such as hemophilia, may have a higher risk of complications. Those with eczema, psoriasis, vitiligo, an active skin infection or cold sore, HIV, uncontrolled diabetes, a weak immune system, or a history of keloid scarring are not always ideal candidates. Lastly, pregnant and breastfeeding women may not be able to receive the treatment.
