Many people live with wrinkles, scarring, acne, and other skin damage. Microneedling is a solution for improvement of these imperfections in an affordable and effective way. If you want smoother, younger and more beautiful skin, microneedling is a great option for you.
At the Laser and Skin Surgery Center, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Renuka Diwan MD, FAAD has 33 years’ experience focused on achieving cosmetic improvement of the skin in men and women. Patients in the Westlake and the greater Cleveland areas can be assured that Dr. Diwan’s experience, continuing education, and passion for helping people feel confident about their appearance will result in beautiful, rejuvenated skin.
Microneedling is performed after applying a numbing cream on the skin. A serum containing stem growth factors, which boosts activation of collagen and elastin production, is applied to the skin during and immediately after microneedling. The growth factors are able to penetrate deeper in the skin through the microchannels, allowing them to reach deeper skin cells. The combination of the procedure and the growth factors create enhanced results. Microneedling is performed in a series of 4 or more treatments, at four-week intervals, to obtain optimal results. Sun protection, daily use of growth factor lotions and antioxidants, as well as maintenance treatments will help maintain the results.
The effects can be enhanced with micro-Juvederm and micro-Botox, tiny amounts of Juvederm and Botox, delivered into the skin with the advanced AQUAGOLD® fine touch™, a state-of-the-art microneedling device. When used to deliver BOTOX® and Juvederm® to the treatment area, the AQUAGOLD® microneedle creates an overall rejuvenating effect that enhances the entire treated skin.
Microneedling with radiofrequency is another enhancement of microneedling for additional collagen stimulation for improvement of wrinkles, pores, pigmentation, stretch marks, depressed scars and even skin tightening. The new PiXel8RF device is used for microneedling with radiofrequency and is customized to your needs.
“Erin did my Microneedling with rf and I have had compliments on my skin from friends and strangers. Best money spent! I have been coming to Dr. Diwan for neurotoxin and fillers for 4 years and regularly get mistaken for 15 years younger than my 57 years.”
“Great staff! Dr. Diwan is so attentive and informative. I would highly recommend Microneedling. I am thrilled with the results!”
Microneedling is an effective procedure of improvement of the following conditions:
AQUAGOLD microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that is performed in our office. It employs fine gold-plated needles to create small punctures in the skin, to nourish it with a customized combination of stem cell growth factors, Juvederm and /or Botox, and stimulate collagen production. The AQUAGOLD® fine touch™ device features 20 24K gold needles that are each thinner than a human hair. Dr. Diwan is able to complete the microneedling treatment in just 20 minutes.
The microneedles deliver micro-injections of customized active ingredients. Dr. Diwan uses stem cell growth factors, BOTOX®, Juvederm® or a combination of these in the AQUAGOLD® device. This provides an overall smoothing and polished effect by reducing the appearance of fine wrinkles, poes, oiliness and redness. The overall effect is an overall improvement in your skin’s health and appearance. The treatment is sought after before important events like weddings, reunions, holidays and other social events.
There is little to no recovery for most patients following treatments with Dr. Diwan. Your face will appear red immediately after treatment, but the redness will gradually fade away over the course of the next day or sooner. Makeup and sunscreen can be applied after 24 hours and sun avoidance is especially important for that time period.
You will begin to see rejuvenating results within a couple of days after your Microneedling treatment. These results improve over the next two weeks as Botox, if used, becomes fully effective. The skin continues to improve over the next three to four months as collagen and elastin regeneration occurs to create smoother and softer skin. Sun protection, daily use of stem growth factor lotions and antioxidants, as well as maintenance treatments will help maintain these results.
