Unlike most practices, we apply a topical numbing cream prior to the procedure in order to keep the treatment comfortable (Dr. Spiegel is known to fall asleep when he gets microneedling done. “It’s like a massage,” he says.) After this is removed we cleanse the skin and apply a pure hyaluronic acid (HA) serum. The HA acts as a lubricant so the microneedling device can glide smoothly across the skin, but more importantly the hyaluronic acid penetrates the skin through the channels which we’re creating. The same hyaluronic acid you get injected, glides in through the many microscopic channels and rejuvenates the skin! Essentially, we’re creating micro injuries which places our skin into going into repair mode, producing new collagen and elastin. The result is younger, healthier looking skin. And, this procedure is safe for all skin types and colors!
