Medical Needling is done in a professional setting, doctor’s office, or medical spa (like Rejuvenate 528), by a trained professional, and goes deeper than cosmetic needling. It is done at a depth of greater than 0.3mm usually ranging between 0.5mm to 2.5mm and can only be done by a medical professional.
During the procedure, there may be pinpoint bleeding. Afterward, your skin will look red and will most likely be slightly puffy.
The good news is that medical micro-needling offers a quick recovery. Down time is usually about one day. And depending on whether you add Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid or PRP, downtime may only be a few hours.
Medical grade micro-needling pens, like the Eclipse MicroPen that we use, create hundreds of vertical microscopic channels in the skin. These pens are motorized and allow precise control of the needle depth. After selecting the depth needed, the pen is gently moved across your skin until the treatment area has been covered.
