There are several techniques for achieving younger, smoother looking skin — but not many that allow your own skin to do the heavy lifting. Microneedling treatments create microscopic channels in the dermis of the skin to stimulate your body’s natural production of collagen, improving your skin’s strength and elasticity as these tiny channels heal.
Douglas J Salon and MedSpa use the VirtueRF Microneedling Platform to apply treatment via an ultra-advanced robotic precision delivery (RPD) system designed to avoid any tearing or trauma to the skin. Combined with lightly applied numbing cream, the treatment is a virtually painless, non-invasive option to visibly improve skin tone, tighten skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Schedule your free consultation today to learn more about how Microneedling treatment can help rejuvenate your skin.
The benefits of stimulating your own skin’s natural healing mechanism for enhanced skin tone and texture are plentiful. The treatment is safe, effective and is generally performed in under 30 minutes. Plus, there’s no need to worry about any social downtime after your Microneedling appointment — our post-care regimen will ensure a “fresh from the spa” feel you’ll love.
Microneedling is commonly used to help address the following concerns:
Before: You’ll want to book a free consultation in order for the Douglas J team to answer questions, provide further details and offer a proposed treatment plan. A typical Microneedling plan includes 3-4 treatments with each spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Once the details are set, we’ll help you prepare for your first appointment.
During: Microneedling treatment itself usually takes 20-30 minutes, depending on the area being treated. Before applying the Microneedling pen, we allow a few minutes for numbing cream to set, ensuring the process is as painless as possible. The pen contains tiny needles that rapidly puncture the skin, so some bleeding is expected.
After: Once treatment is done, the micro wounds in your skin may stay inflamed for a few hours. You’ll notice some redness and possibly some bruising for the first day or two, so it’s a good idea to take it easy at first. We’ll provide detailed instructions for your soothing aftercare regimen to ensure your skin stays hydrated and clean as it heals, allowing you to go about your normal routines as well.
See the difference – the aesthetic benefits of Microneedling will improve as your skin has time to heal. Here’s what a full transformation looks like from start to finish:
Upon completing your initial treatment plan, a maintenance appointment every six months is recommended to keep your skin looking fresh and to prolong the treatment’s positive effects.
Microneedling skin care is recommended for adults looking to minimize wrinkles, mend scarring or smooth over uneven skin tone — in short, it’s for anyone looking to feel more comfortable in their own skin!
