Mesopen microneedling is a revolutionary way to address some of the most stubborn cosmetic problems. With as little as 4 sessions, this all natural treatment helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles, tightens the skin, lightens hyperpigmentation, reduces acne scars, shrinks large pores, fades stretch marks and even helps improve hair growth.
What it is: Microneedling works by creating micro channels in the skin which stimulate your tissues to produce more collagen and elastin. In addition to activating your skin’s repair mechanisms, the mesopen allows active ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, Vitamin C, glutathione, and others to penetrate deep inside the skin where they can perform their actions more readily.
What to expect: An average treatment requires approximately 1.5 hours from start to finish. Prior to the start of procedure, a topical numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area for approximately 30 minutes. During the treatment the practitioner will apply the chosen ingredients to the skin and administer the mesopen. Typically this portion of the treatment lasts 15 minutes. During the procedure you may experience some slight tingling and warmth of the skin, however the procedure is very comfortable. After the mesopen, a soothing mask will be applied to the skin for 20 minutes to cool and hydrate the skin.
Downtime: After the procedure you may expect redness for up to 72 hours post treatment depending on skin sensitivity. You can return to work and other activities the day after the procedure providing a physical sunscreen and if needed, mineral make-up is applied.
Frequency and Duration: Although results can become noticeable about 4 weeks after the 1st session, the recommended frequency for most people is 1X/month. At the time of your treatment the practitioner will recommend the most optimal number of sessions for your concerns.
