Microneedling is a unique rejuvenation technique that triggers the body’s healing response to enhance the appearance and elasticity of the skin. At 7 Seas Medical Spa, we are proud to offer this treatment to residents of Evans, Columbia City and Augusta, GA.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a cosmetic technique that enhances skin elasticity and appearance by stimulating collagen production. During treatment, tiny needles pierce the skin, triggering a healing response in the body. The body produces collagen and elastin to heal these wounds, ultimately strengthening and rejuvenating the skin as a result. Microneedling can be used to address the following cosmetic concerns:
- Acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Lines and wrinkles
- Uneven tone or texture
- Enlarged pores
How Much Does Microneedling Cost?
The cost of your microneedling treatment will depend on a variety of factors, including the techniques used and the extent of treatment needed to produce your desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Austin will assess your treatment goals in order to develop a personalized treatment plan. At this point, we will be able to provide you with the full cost of treatment. For your convenience, we accept many forms of payment and also offer flexible financing options through CareCredit® and Prosper® Healthcare Lending.
What is MicroPen™?
MicroPen™ is a precise microneedling treatment performed using a handheld device that resembles a pen. It can be used on all areas of the body, but may be ideal for smaller treatment areas due to the size of the device. The advanced technology of the MicroPen™ device also allows for safer and more comfortable treatments.
What is Secret™ Radiofrequency?
Secret™ Radiofrequency is a microneedling system that combines radiofrequency energy with the traditional microneedling treatment. In addition to the usual benefits of microneedling, the Secret™ RF device delivers radiofrequency energy to the treatment area to produce instant skin tightening and enhanced collagen production. The strength and depth of treatment can also be customized for each patient.
Is There Any Downtime After Microneedling?
After microneedling, the skin will appear red, and may be sensitive or slightly inflamed for a few days after treatment. However, you should be able to return to work and most other activities within a day or two of your appointment. The skin should be fully healed within about a week of your treatment.
When Will I Notice Results from My Microneedling Treatment?
Once the skin begins to recover from treatment, the results from microneedling will become visible. Patients will notice improvements in the appearance and texture of the skin within just a few weeks. These results will continue to improve during the months following treatment as collagen continues to restore the skin. We may recommend a series of treatments initially, with maintenance treatments to maintain your results once they are achieved.
