Microneedling

Microneedling treatments are used to rejuvenate the skin by reducing the appearance of fine lines Microneedling treatments are used to rejuvenate the skin by reducing the appearance of fine lines, scars, pore size, and stretch marks while improving uneven skin texture. Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that uses very fine needles to create tiny punctures (microchannels) in the top layer of the skin. These microchannels trigger the body to create new collagen and elastin as well as allowing skin care products (or PRP – see below) to penetrate better into the skin. With the production of new collagen (the protein that keeps the skin plump and firm) and elastin (the protein that gives the skin its spring and elasticity), the skin regains a fresher, younger-looking appearance.

At the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology, we treat patients with the newest Eclipse MicroPen EVO. Here’s what you can expect from a MicroPen EVO microneedling procedure:
  • A plan for optimal results: After a consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists, a course of treatments will be determined based on your individual needs. Initially, patients receive three-six treatments spaced out every three-four weeks followed by annual maintenance as needed.
  • A comfortable procedure: we apply topical numbing to make the treatment easily tolerated. Most patients only feel the vibrations from the Eclipse MicroPen EVO during the procedure.
  • A short procedure time: treatments typically only take 15-45 minutes, depending on the area(s) being treated.
  • Little to no downtime: The skin will appear slightly pink to red immediately post-procedure, similar to a mild to moderate sunburn. In the days following the treatment, there may be some dryness, rough skin, tightness, redness, itching, peeling, discomfort, tenderness, and burning. These conditions resolved over time without any further complications.
  • Soothing aftercare: Immediately following the procedure, our laser technician applies a soothing skin care product to the skin. We will recommend skin care products for your individual needs for at-home maintenance.

If you are someone who is looking for a way to get rid of the Acne scars, Micro-needling is the treatment you should get. Watch this video to learn more about Micro-needling as Dr. Mary Lupo from Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology explains it all.


What is Micro-needling?

Micro-needling has become a very popular modality to stimulate collagen production.

Micro-needling is actually a mechanical injury to the skin to the level of the upper papillary dermis; to stimulate new collagen production.

What are the areas which can be treated through Micro-needling?

Micro-needling is effective for mild photo-aging, mild acne scarring, and fine lines.

The beauty of micro-needling is it can be done on all skin types and is effective for a wide range of conditions.

For an enhanced microneedling treatment, some patients choose to have their own PRR (platelet-rich plasma) applied to the skin immediately before and after the microneedling treatment. PRP involves withdrawing a patient’s own blood, processing it so that only the enriched PRP cells remain, and applying that plasma to the skin. PRP contains a high concentration of natural growth factors and essential proteins that stimulate the healing process and the creation of collagen. In this way, PRP softens wrinkles and evens out texture and tone.

Microneedling with the MicroPen EVO is safe for all skin types, and it is effective on all parts of the body, including the face, neck, and décolletage. This treatment can be done any time of the year; however, we recommend that patients stay out of direct sunlight during the first five days after treatment. To schedule a consultation to see if microneedling is right for you, call us today at 504-777-3047.

Review From Tiffany S.
Dr. Lupo is absolutely amazing! I saw her for botox and filler before my wedding and now I am a devotee of her work. She is a master at accomplishing a natural looking and beautiful result. She has an artist's eye and a surgeon's calm hands. She is personable, kind, and funny, and I always find myself 100% at ease in her office. It is easy to be candid with her and ask for exactly what you want. She is honest and takes the time to communicate with you to make sure you're both on the same page, and you don't feel like she is running in and out of the room and rushing off to another appointment. She gives you her full attention and it makes a world of difference. I highly recommend Dr. Lupo to all my friends and family. Wonderful woman and doctor. Couldn't be happier!
