Microneedling in Melbourne, FL
Microneedling is an anti-aging treatment that creates very tiny injuries in the skin to stimulate collagen production. Collagen provides an underlying support for the skin to lift areas that have developed lines and wrinkles. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy can also be combined with any of the microneedling treatments. Castellon Plastic Surgery Center, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Mauricio J. Castellon, MD, offers microneedling treatment using Dermapen® and Fractora for men and women who live in Melbourne, Brevard County and the surrounding communities of Central Florida.
What is Microneedling?
The procedure works by creating micro-injuries in the skin. Your body senses the injuries and triggers collagen formation to repair the injured tissue by producing new skin cells. Collagen is used in many anti-aging products because it provides a support structure for the skin. Microneedling, in essence, replenishes the collagen that was lost as a result of the aging process.
Dermapen® is the leading device for microneedling procedures on the neck, face and chest. The technology behind the Dermapen® device has made it the gold standard for microneedling treatments. An estimated 7,000 practices use Dermapen®, and Castellon Plastic Surgery Center is proud to bring this incredible anti-aging treatment to men and women in Central Florida. Clinical studies and practical experience have proven that microneedling with Dermapen® produces amazing results without surgery.
Fractora is a radiofrequency microneedling device that provides anti-aging improvements on skin tone, texture and firmness for a more radiant look. The system’s unique “pin-based” technology is relatively new, providing deep-reaching results for all skin types. Fractora uses microfine pins that rejuvenate and tighten skin at scalable depths depending on the problem and severity with minimal discomfort. Fractora is the way to go for treating axillary hyperhidrosis and is a viable option for neck skin tightening, stretch marks and even to treat the vertical lines some women develop on their chests.
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Microneedling?
We recommend microneedling for men and women with:
- Acne/acne scars
- Reduced facial volume
- Fine lines and wrinkles
How Does Microneedling Improve My Skin?
Microneedling involves a series of microneedles that penetrate the top layer of skin. The shallow needle depth means that you will not be able to see the micro-injuries after the procedure. Microneedling improves the tone and texture of your skin while correcting fine lines, dull complexion and reduced facial volume.
What Should I Expect From Microneedling Treatments?
Microneedling takes about 20 minutes. The skin is numbed with a topical anesthesia. Our aesthetician slowly and gently applies either the Dermapen® or Fractora device to the skin using a consistent pattern of movement.
How Long Does It Take to See Results from Microneedling?
We typically recommend three to five treatments for best results. The results are permanent, but the procedure does not stop the aging process. You may want to consider periodic follow-up treatments to help prevent lines and wrinkles.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, also known as a blood facial, can be combined with any of the microneedling treatments listed above to achieve the final goal of younger looking skin. PRP includes drawing blood from your arm, separating the platelets, and then placing them into your skin with microneedling. PRP stimulates your own collagen to grow for total facial rejuvenation rather than individual wrinkle improvement.
