Micro Needling | Serendipity Skin

Micro needling addresses textural issues such as fine lines, pore size, scarring, and uneven surface. This treatment requires a consultation and minimal prep prior to treatment. During your consultation, your aesthetician will assess your skin to ensure micro needling is the best option for your concerns. You will be given pre- and post- care instructions and all your questions will be addressed.

Micro Needling

Micro needling is best done in a series of treatments to have your results last longer. This treatment uses microneedles to introduce many tiny wounds, resulting in a cascade of skin healing. The healing brings on new collagen and elastin fibers, resulting in firmer tighter skin texture. There are different ways this treatment can be performed: The best option is a “Vampire Facial”, or PRP. This treatment must be performed by a nurse or M.D. and consists of having your blood drawn and then used to be pushed back into your skin during the micro-needling treatment. The second-best option is a treatment performed by a licensed professional under the direction of a Physician. This allows for deeper penetration of the wound and will show even better results. Option three is micro needling as an aesthetic service provided by a licensed professional. This option is great and allows the practitioner to penetrate a certain depth into the skin to give quality results.

The most basic, and typically not suggested, are at home “rollers.” This is not suggested due to lack of wound control and infection. At Serendipity Skin, we practice micro needling under the direction of Dr. Laree Hooker. This treatment is performed with a very effective topical numbing cream for client comfort.
