What is Micro Needling?
Micro Needling allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair mechanism by creating micro injuries which trigger new collagen synthesis, yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring.
As a result, new collagen and elastin is formed to reduce wrinkle depth and the appearance of scars and other skin imperfections, leaving smoother, clearer, firmer, and younger looking skin.
Immediately after your treatment you will look as though you have moderate sunburn and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. This will start to subside after 1 to 2 hours and will normally recover within the same day with only slight redness the following day.

VT Micro Needling Post Procedure (NH Micro Needling)
Immediately after your Micro-Needling procedure, do not take any anti-inflammatory medications such as Ibuprofen, Motrin or Advil. These agents will interfere with the natural inflammatory process that is critical and responsible for your skin rejuvenation. Follow these simple steps:
Day of procedure: No lotions, makeup or other topical products on your face before your procedure. After your procedure your medical provider may apply a lipo-peptide booster, skin moisturizer, and sun screen. You may clean your face with a gentle cleanser before bed.
Day 1: 24 Hours after treatment, you may clean your face as usual and apply makeup, lotions and other topical products as usual. Stay away from exfoliants or glycolic acids that are present is cleaners as these can make your skin very dry after the procedure. Be sure to use an approved SPF30 or greater sunscreen!
Days 2-7: Within two (2) days following your Micro-Needling procedure, you will notice skin dryness and flaking. This is due to an increased turnover of skin cells. During this period, you may apply your regular skin moisturizer. Follow the instructions given to you by your medical professional. If your medical professional used the roller or needle device around the eyes, you may have a little micro bruising that may exist for three or four days. This can easily be covered with makeup.
Days later, your skin will start shedding. These are skin layers that would regularly shed a week later, but the Micro-Needling brings this skin to the surface sooner. During this temporary process, your skin will shed and be dry.
Days 7+: A week after the Micro-Needling procedure, most patients notice that their skin is smoother and more radiant.
Please Note, VT Micro Needling: Results vary, but usually a course of 1-3 treatments (maximum of 5, depending on the condition being treated) is typically recommended. If you require MORE procedures than this, you may have an unrecognized underlying medical condition and should consult with your provider. Of course, results may vary from patient to patient. Keep in mind that the healthier your body is, the better will be the results you achieve from a Micro-Needling procedure. Your body’s function and overall health are reflected in your skin.
Description of the Procedure:
The DermaPen skin needling system or dermal roller treatment allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair mechanism by creating micro “injuries” in the skin which triggers new collagen synthesis. The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin.
Skin needling procedures are performed in a safe and precise manner with the use of the sterile DermaPen skin needling system or dermal roller treatment. The procedure is normally completed within 30-60 minutes depending on the required treatment and anatomical site.
After the procedure, the skin will be red and flushed in appearance in a similar way to moderate sunburn. You may also experience skin tightness and mild sensitivity to touch on the area being treated. The skin’s redness will diminish greatly after a few hours following the treatment and within the next 24 hours the skin will be generally calmed. After 3 days the skin will return to a normal or near normal appearance.
Keloid scars; history of eczema, psoriasis and other chronic conditions; history of actinic (solar) keratosis; history of Herpes Simplex infections; history of diabetes; presence of raised moles, warts on targeted area. Other medical at risk conditions based upon your medical history may also contraindicate yourself from receiving treatment.
Absolute contraindications include; scleroderma, collagen vascular diseases or cardiac abnormalities; blood clotting problems; active bacterial or fungal infection; immuno-suppression; scars less than 6 months old. Not recommended for women who are pregnant or nursing.
