Aging, environmental factors, genetics, and lifestyle all affect the health and appearance of your skin. If you’re looking for a treatment that will transform your skin and reverse aging, we want to introduce you to a revolutionary treatment called microneedling that you can schedule here in West Melbourne, FL. This collagen induction therapy treatment stimulates collagen and elastin production to naturally rejuvenate your skin after just one treatment.

Microneedling in West Melbourne: A Revolutionary Approach to Skin Rejuvenation

Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation treatment that revitalizes the skin by stimulating natural collagen and elastin production. It’s a non-surgical, minimally invasive, and results-driven treatment that addresses the most common and stubborn skin imperfections and conditions. It’s safe for all skin types, it’s a customizable treatment, and it doesn’t require any chemicals or invasive measures.

How It Works

At The Refinery Medspa & Wellness locations in Indian Harbour Beach and West Melbourne, FL, we offer microneedling treatments with the MDPen. This pen-like device has tiny needles that create micro-injuries on the skin’s surface during treatment. In doing so, it forces the body to respond to a healing reaction. The body heals the area by increasing collagen production and accelerating cellular regeneration and renewal.

After a single treatment, your skin will be covered with tiny perforations that also double as microchannels that extend into the deeper layers. These microchannels temporarily increase the skin’s absorption rate, so whatever we apply during and after the treatment will better absorb into the deeper layers.

Why It Works

This treatment is so effective because it forces the body to respond with a healing reaction to improve the skin naturally. The MDPen causes a natural increase in collagen and elastin production. These two proteins are key for maintaining youthful skin. As you age, your body produces less of these proteins every year, especially after the age of 30.

With a decrease in collagen and elastin production, your skin becomes thinner and weaker, which results in the formation of lines and wrinkles and reduced skin elasticity. This collagen induction therapy treatment stimulates natural collagen and elastin production to naturally resolve these common signs of aging and improve skin texture and strength.

What It Treats

This treatment can address the most common aging-related and cosmetic imperfections and conditions. We design customized treatment plans to improve uneven skin texture, reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, treat dullness, improve the appearance of acne scars, reverse sun damage, promote hair regrowth, and help patients achieve and maintain a healthy glow.

The MDPen can improve the skin on the face and body as needed. A customized treatment plan will address your specific area of concern.

Who It’s Right For

This needling treatment is effective for patients looking for a non-surgical solution to visibly improve their skin without requiring significant downtime or causing pain and discomfort during the session. It’s a perfect solution for patients who want to schedule a natural treatment that will visibly improve skin texture, acne scars, lines and wrinkles, sun damage, large pores, uneven skin tone, and more.

Some patients may not qualify for treatment for safety reasons, including pregnant and nursing women, patients with an active skin infection or breakout in the planned treatment area, and certain skin conditions. An initial consultation is the best way to determine whether this treatment is a safe and effective option for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Happens During the Treatment?

When you arrive at one of our locations, we will apply a topical solution to your skin. After your skin becomes numb, we will begin the treatment process, which will take approximately 45 minutes. The technician will use the MDPen to create microchannels across your skin’s surface. Once it’s over, you’ll receive some aftercare instructions and can resume your normal activities.

Is There Any Downtime?

After your treatment, your skin may be red, which is a normal response to the process that will resolve itself within the first few days of the treatment. In the days following your treatment, you’ll notice smoother and brighter skin, diminished wrinkles, an improvement in acne scars, and more. There is no significant downtime after a treatment, but it is important that you follow some aftercare instructions.

You’ll need to avoid activities and environments that increase your body temperature and could increase the risk of irritation and inflammation after your session. Using the right products after treatment is important to take advantage of your skin’s increased absorption rate. We will provide product recommendations so you know what products to use to enhance your treatment results. You can plan on resuming your normal daily activities as long as you follow to the aftercare instructions provided by your technician.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

You will notice results after a single treatment, but the best results are visible after a series of treatments. Most patients schedule three to four sessions, with approximately four to six weeks between each for optimal results. We will give you more information about what type of treatment plan is right for your skin based on your treatment goals and primary concerns.

When Will I See the Results?

Patients will notice some initial results within the first few weeks of treatments and even better results in the months that follow. Your treatment results will continue to build on the results of the previous treatment as your body responds by increasing collagen production. After the initial session, the best results will be visible within the first three months.

How Long Will My Results Last?

After your treatment, the results will last several months to a year. Because the aging process does not stop, you may begin to see additional signs of aging. The good news is that you can continue fighting against the aging process by scheduling monthly maintenance sessions throughout the year to maintain adequate collagen and elastin production and beautiful, youthful, glowing skin.

Is the Treatment Painful?

We begin each treatment by applying a topical numbing cream to ensure that you remain comfortable throughout the duration of the session. The numbing cream prevents you from feeling the needles as they stamp your skin. When you schedule your treatment with us, you can expect a comfortable, enjoyable, and professional treatment custom-tailored to your unique needs.

Can It Be Combined With Other Skincare Treatments?

MDPen treatments pair well with other professional skin care treatments. However, depending on the treatment, you may need to wait a certain amount of time to avoid irritating your skin.

Facials, exfoliating treatments, and other similar professional treatments scheduled immediately following this treatment may aggravate your skin. It’s important to give your skin time to heal and then schedule your desired treatment as directed by your technician. We can give you more information about how to schedule additional skincare treatments around MDPen sessions for the best results.

Beautiful, glowing skin is within your reach.
