What is 3MD microneedling?

Regardless of your skin color or type, 3MD microneedling is the best treatment you can have to have to make your skin look radiant, healthy, and younger. This collagen induction therapy minimizes fine lines and wrinkles, tightens the skin, and provides an overall more attractive appearance for the skin.

How 3MD microneedling works

Microneedling uses a hand-controlled device with tiny, shallow needles to puncture the outer layer of skin. 

This process creates a controlled skin injury, and this “damage” stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin. The freshly-produced collagen rejuvenates the skin by filling in fine lines, resulting in an overall improvement in the texture and tightness of your skin by removing the wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks.

Why choose microneedling?

As we grow old, our skin ages and becomes loose and less elastic. The main reason for this is the reduction in fibroblast cells, which are building blocks of collagen proteins that help keep our cells strong and connected. Aging results in wrinkles and sagging, which makes our skin appear very dull — but 3MD microneedling is an excellent option to combat this.

3MD pen vs. derma roller

3MD pens offers a more progressive, effective, and faster way to get results than a derma roller. 3MD microneedling is able to address the difficult-to-reach areas that derma rollers cannot, and the device also allows for more customization because the depth of the needles can be adjusted, but a derma roller cannot be. A 3MD pen also ensures less risk of injury, and less chance of side effects. 

Dermapen 3MD treatment details

One 3MD microneedling session typically takes 45 to 60 minutes. Your skin will be cleansed, and depending on your level of treatment, we may provide a numbing anesthetic for you to keep you as comfortable as possible. The 3MD pen will be passed over your skin a few times. 

Patients describe the feeling as tiny pin pricks, not painful but slightly uncomfortable. The numbing agent will help, and the benefits are very worth it. We also offer brightening serums, PRP treatment, and other additions to our 3MD microneedling treatments if you want to enhance your results. Adding these serums during a microneedling treatment helps them to penetrate more deeply into the skin, thereby making them more effective. 

How many treatments are needed?

The number of 3MD microneedling treatments will depend on two things: your personal aesthetic desires and what area is being treated. For wrinkles or stretch marks for example, you may need 4 to 8 treatments to get the best results. Treatments are scheduled 4 to 6 weeks apart to ensure the health and safety of your skin.

Recovery and results

At first, your skin will appear red, similar to a sunburn. It will return to its normal color within a couple of days. It’s important to be aware that the natural growth of collagen will not happen instantly. It takes place over weeks and months. This treatment is not designed to be an instant fix, but rather is intended to improve the health of your skin in the long term.
