When it comes to anti-aging techniques, few beat microneedling for breathing new life into aging skin. At Erasing Time, the team of registered nurses led by Kymberly Mariner, RN, offers this facial treatment to patients who want to remodel their skin for a more youthful appearance. To learn more about the powerful and effective microneedling treatment, call the office in Woodland Hills, California, or request an appointment using the online booking feature.
Microneedling is an ingenious facial treatment that taps your body’s own powerful resources to rebuild from within. To do this, your registered nurse at Erasing Time uses a specialized tool with tiny needles that create a network of microchannels in your skin.
These tiny injuries create a healing response in your body that calls upon renewed collagen production to repair the “damage.” Over time, as the collagen shores up the matrix of microchannels, the effect lifts the entire surface of your skin for a more evenly-toned appearance that reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
In addition to rebuilding your skin from the inside, microneedling also breaks apart surface problems, such as acne scarring, paving the way for smoother skin.
Yes! Nurse practitioner Kymberly Mariner is certified in the Vampire Facial®, which taps the power of your platelets to regenerate new tissue. When the team at Erasing Time adds PRP therapy to your already effective microneedling treatment, your skin rebuilds itself more quickly as the platelets release growth factors that aid in healing.
Before your registered nurse begins your microneedling treatment, they apply a topical anesthetic for your comfort. The needles that they use are very small, and they only go as far as your dermis (the layer below your epidermis) in order to elicit the right response in your tissue.
The treatment itself takes about an hour, and you’re free to return home afterward.
Many patients benefit from a series of microneedling treatments, which the team at Erasing Time spaces apart by a week or two to allow time for your tissue to respond.
After your microneedling treatments, you may experience some redness in your skin, which only lasts a few days to a week. Over the weeks following your microneedling, the new collagen gradually builds a new structural network that lifts and evens out your skin.
During this time you need to be especially mindful of protecting your skin against the elements, especially the California sun.
