Microneedling is a procedure that resurfaces and plumps the skin. We are proud to offer microneedling to residents of Virginia including McLean, Falls Church, Tysons, Arlington plus the Washington DC area. It is performed by Dr. Vartan Mardirossian at the Mardirossian Facial Aesthetics fully licensed surgical suite in McLean, VA.
What is Microneedling?
Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling is a technique that relies on the body’s natural healing processes. The microneedling device makes tiny micro-injuries in the skin that trigger the body to produce collagen fibers. These fibers heal the wounds and provide a much-needed support system for aged and damaged skin. Dr. Mardirossian recommends microneedling for:
- Fine lines
- Superficial scars, such as those caused by acne
- Stretch marks
- Irregular pigmentation
- Lax skin
- Large pores
- Age spots and brown spots
- Rough texture
How Much Does Microneedling Cost?
The cost of your microneedling treatment will vary by patient. The cost of this treatment depends on the size of the area and the number of treatments recommended to help you achieve your desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Mardirossian will take these factors into consideration in order to provide you with the exact cost of treatment. We also offer financing services like CareCredit® to help make your treatment more affordable.
Am I a Candidate for Microneedling?
Microneedling is a good option for most skin types that have superficial flaws. The procedure can be performed on women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. These women often opt for microneedling stretch marks in combination with their facial rejuvenation treatments.
How is Microneedling Performed?
Microneedling is performed with a device that has a series of tiny needles. The needles penetrate the skin, and there is little to no discomfort. When the needles penetrate the skin, they create microinjuries that trigger the body’s natural healing process. This healing process boosts the body’s natural production of collagen to promote the generation of new, healthy skin cells.
What is the Rejuvapen™?
Rejuvapen™ is an innovative technology used to perform microneedling. The handheld device features four customizable settings to ensure you get the best treatment for your skin concerns. This handheld device stands out among its competitors by tightening the skin, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, minimizing pores and clearing hyperpigmentation for overall healthier skin.
What is Recovery Like After Microneedling?
Recovery after microneedling is minimal. The microinjuries are so small that bleeding does not occur. If you do have bleeding, it is pinpoint in size and stops very soon after the procedure. Your skin may slightly red and feel a little sensitive for the first few days.
How Long Does Microneedling Results Last?
Microneedling works by stimulating collagen production. It will not stop the aging process, so your body continues to break down collagen in the skin. The results may last for several months or more than one year, depending on many factors.
