Non-Surgical Treatment For Scars, Wrinkles & Sun Damage

Microneedling is a cosmetic dermatology procedure to treat/reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, scars and sun damage on the skin. We like it because it’s effective while also being far less invasive than harsh chemical peels, damaging lasers or invasive injections. Microneedling works by creating a microscopic lattice of perforations in the skin that stimulate the body’s natural release of collagen and elastin in the skin. The microscopic perforations also stimulate the body’s healing response and break up scar tissue while not causing further harm. Nanoneedling is a subset of microneedling that is designed specifically for the extra-sensitive skin under the eyes or around the lips. Nanoneedling is preferable for these extra-sensitive areas because the even finer hairlike points stay in the outermost layer, the epidermis. By repeatedly stimulating the body’s healing response while also releasing beneficial collagen and elastin, microneedling improves skin’s look and feel in a safe, effective way.

Since Both Dr. Vy Simeles and myself (Dr. Danielle Lockwood) are both licensed acupuncturists in addition to being primary care docs, we’re both uniquely qualified to perform microneedling in keeping with all of the best techniques and practices of Chinese Medicine. Treatment usually consists of 4-6 treatments and the results usually last about 4-6 years without any follow-up necessary.

The concept of microneedling dates back thousands of years, when it was used by Chinese royalty, and the emperor himself, to maintain youthful, healthy-looking skin. By combining this ancient tradition with the latest in plant-based topical serums, precision medical equipment and exacting sterile technique, we arrive at an effective way for naturally-minded people to achieve younger, healthier-looking skin.
