Do you have one or more of these concerns?
• Sun-damaged skin
• Brown spots, sun spots
• Acne or acne scarring
• Fine lines, large pores
• Loose skin
Medical microneedling with Dr. Shell is an unparalleled treatment from what you might receive at a med spa. When performed by a licensed physician, this is an aggressive procedure designed for textural issues involving acne scars, large pores, fine lines and sun-damage.
Tiny needles puncture the skin, which stimulates collagen and elastin. Prescription numbing cream is applied topically to the face, neck and/or décolleté treatment areas. This allows for a painless experience as tiny needles puncture the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin. Medical microneedling requires multiple passes to achieve a successful endpoint aka the blood mask.
The addition of PRP can further speed up the healing process and stimulate skin renewal. Medicated serums can also be added to target melasma; in fact, medical microneedling is one of the most effective treatments for melasma and stubborn hyperpigmentation.
There are many factors that will play a significant role in the final results, including skin condition, age, goals and overall health. The average patient will complete 3 treatments, 3 to 4 weeks apart, before following a maintenance protocol of 2-4 treatments per year.
