Prior to microneedling, a topical numbing cream is applied thus the procedure involves little to no discomfort.
Microdermabrasion involves the use of a small paddle-like device to remove surface skin cells. This is sometimes utilized prior to microneedling (aka microchannelling).
Microneedling (microchannelling) involves use of tiny needles to make shallow holes (channels) in your skin. This allows for up to 300% increased absorption of serums. Depth and density of treatment is based on your specific skin needs. Throughout treatment a serum composed of skin proteins (cytokines) derived from stem cells is applied. This array of proteins supports collagen production and ensures safe and effective augmentation of all phases of healing in the treated skin stimulating it to regenerate stronger and healthier than before.
Dr Buster usually performs treatments every 2 to 6 weeks until goal is reached. Collagen remodeling occurs over 3 to 6 months, but patients usually see improvements in their skin within days to weeks of treatment.
