Microneedling is a popular skin renewing treatment because it provides mega improvements to the tone and texture of your skin without the hassle of a lengthy downtime. Who doesn’t want that? But did you know there are different types of microneedling devices, and that some treatments are better than others? The quality of your treatment depends on not only the skill and training of the technician but also the quality of the equipment.
To ensure your microneedling treatment is a huge success, here are two key questions to ask when looking for a provider:
Which microneedling device are they using?
There’s only one FDA-cleared microneedling device—SkinPen® Elite—and you’ll find it at Skin Care Institute. Appropriate for all skin types, SkinPen uses straight, disposable needles which penetrate skin at a 90-degree angle to provide a clean, precise “wound” for superior skin-renewing benefits. The needles vary in length, from .25 mm to 2 mm, allowing us to tailor treatments to your skin’s thickness and exact needs. The SkinPen also uses sterile, single-use cartridges to prevent cross-contamination and infection.
Who is performing your treatment?
Are you entrusting your skin to a licensed aesthetician with years of experience? Is the facility overseen by a doctor? Skin Care Institute is overseen and directed by Dr. Jeff Alexander, a leading dermatologist with over 30 years of experience in skin care. Dr. Alexander has carefully selected a dedicated and skilled staff with years of training and experience to perform the highest level of treatments and optimal results.
