Dermal Needling Aliso Viejo

Dermal Needling By Dr. Face

Dermal needling is also called skin needling, micro-needling therapy or collagen induction therapy. It is a minimally invasive nonsurgical and nonablative procedure for facial rejuvenation that involves a specialized device to create a controlled minor skin injury.

When the fine needle punctures skin, it creates a micro-wound. This type of controlled injury causes the body to produce new collagen and elastin, substances that give your skin that plump, youthful texture and glow. In addition, dermal needling creates new capillaries. This treatment also reduces the appearance of scars and fosters improved skin smoothness, tightness and hydration.

Professional dermal needling is among the safest skin treatment procedures available. Compared with chemical peels, dermabrasion or laser treatment, dermal needling and micro-needling cause the least damage to your skin.

Your Benefits of Dermal Needling

Dermal needling offers many benefits, including:

  • Reduced risk of hyperpigmentation and scarring, safe on dark skin
  • Corrects sunken areas on skin caused by acne and chicken pox, fine lines, discoloration and skin rejuvenation
  • Works with thin, sensitive skin
  • Can be performed in-office
  • Cost-effective
  • Works on skin areas not suitable for peels or laser resurfacing
  • Does not damage epidermis, can be safely repeated
  • Does not cause demarcation line between treated and untreated skin
  • Treats specific areas of scarring without the need to blend treatment edges
  • Patient can resume regular activities in a few days, based on needle penetration

Other treatment options like laser resurfacing or dermabrasion often cause considerable damage and longer time away from daily activities.

How Long Before You See Results

It takes approximately 48 to 72 hours after treatment for increased collagen production and about four weeks to see noticeable results from dermal needling. New collagen created by this treatment can last several years, making micro-needling an effective, long-lasting treatment for your skin.

We use the state-of-the-art COSMOPen micro-needling technology, which offers the same results as a fractional laser without the downtime, expense, pain or thermal damage. We use COSMOPen to treat acne, surgical scars, keloids, wrinkles, stretch marks, large pores and signs of aging skin. Additionally, by vertically piercing the skin, COSMOPen helps induce collagen production and treat pigmentation.

Dr. Robinson and staff welcome patients from Aliso Viejo, Irvine, Laguna Hills, Laguna Niguel, Lake Forest, Mission Viejo and nearby locations.

Patient Testimonials

Dr. Robinson changed my life...

Dr. Robinson changed my life. He was recommended to me as I had never had any type of work done and he exceeded my expectations. The procedures that Dr. Robinson performed clearly took 15 years off. I am 55 and I constantly get shocked responses from people who think I am 15 years younger. The work was subtle and my experience with the surgery and the healing process was very positive. I cannot thank Dr. Robinson enough for giving me back my youth.
