Although the skin’s primary function is protective, the skin is also the primary gateway for toxins to enter the body. It is not only vital to your health to be mindful of what you put in your body, but also what you put on it. Conventional bath and body products are riddled with harmful chemicals. Our skin absorbs 60% of what we apply to it. More than 10,000 different ingredients are permitted within personal use products, many of which are hazardous to our health. Your skin has vital functions, not just cosmetic. Be thoughtful and responsible for how you tend to it. The average woman wears nearly 515 different chemicals every day. Do not be average. Come see us at Skin Deep Aesthetics.
Suitable for all skin types, microneedling is one of the best modalities for reversing the signs of aging and minimizing the appearance of acne, scars (burns, surgical, acne), and stretch marks. Microneedling can also be used for tattoo removal.
What Is Microneedling?
It is a minimally invasive procedure that uses your body’s own healing responses to generate healthy, new skin. A collagen PIN (percutaneous induction needling) tool is used to create numerous micro-punctures to the skin, stimulating collagen production and new skin cell regeneration, resulting in improved skin texture, pore size, and minimizing wrinkles and scars.
A post-care kit is included for all microneedling clients. Post-care kit includes a gentle daily wash, hyaluronic acid blend, moisturizer, and tinted mineral sunscreen. This post-care kit lasts for approximately three microneedling treatments.
Microneedling for Acne Scars
Severe acne scars do not respond well to over-the-counter remedies. Laser treatments can help to resurface the skin, however, a side effect can be uneven skin tone. Chemical peels use acid to remove the skin’s foremost layer. Fillers, filling the skin with fat or collagen, cause scars to puff up and smooth out over time.
A last result is surgery. A doctor would remove the offending skin and create grafts to replace it. A less invasive, but highly effective treatment is microneedling.
Microneedling for Enlarged Pores
Are enlarged pores harmful?
Enlarged pores are not harmful, but can be unsightly. Clogged pores can lead to pimples or acne. Acne can cause scarring. The skin’s appearance can be noticeably altered by enlarged pores causing the skin to seem dull and uneven. Enlarged pores are often caused by the loss of collagen and elastin—the building blocks of the skin. Healthy skin boosts confidence in one’s appearance.
How are enlarged pores treated?
Keeping the pores clean and unclogged is the key to skin health. Daily cleansing and at-home remedies such as exfoliants and masks can help unclog pores. Chemical peels and microdermabrasion remove debris from the skin to refine texture. Laser skin resurfacing or Fraxel can treat enlarged pores, but may cause hyperpigmentation.
Neuromodulators can create tighter skin and reduce appearance of large pores. Photodynamic therapy, a light activated solution, improves the size of the oil glands. Microneedling seems to be one of the most successful and longest lasting treatments for enlarged pores.
Why is microneedling enlarged pores a great treatment?
Microneedling is a safe and effective method for reducing the appearance of enlarged pores. The micro injuries to the skin caused by microneedling trigger skin’s own wound healing response. The skin naturally produces new collagen and elastin. Collagen creates the appearance of smaller pores and tighter skin. Collagen builds healthy supple skin.
Microneedling has virtually no side effects unlike many other treatments. Microneedling for enlarged pores is one of the most common uses of the treatment.
How many microneedling treatments will I need?
Typically a series of 3-6 microneedling treatments is recommended, depending upon your area of correction or concern. Your skincare professional will ultimately determine a treatment schedule based on your individual goals and desires.
Treatments are usually done in 4-week intervals. Patients with deep wrinkles, advanced sun damage, stretch marks, or any type of scars usually require 6 or more treatments to achieve the desired results.
What is the microneedling treatment like?
A sterile disposable needle cartridge, holding either 12 or 36 microneedles are glided across the skin with the Collagen P.I.N. microneedling device that mechanically induces a micro injury to the desired depth chosen for your skin by your medical provider.
Will microneedling procedure hurt?
The medical provider will apply a topical numbing agent prior to your treatment with the Collagen P.I.N. microneedling pen. Most people say they feel almost nothing when a numbing cream is used.
How long will it take for me to see results from my microneedling treatment?
Most all patients see results after the first microneedling treatment. Individual results vary depending on individual skin health. It is most common to begin to see true changes or positive results as soon as 1-2 weeks after the first treatment. Many patients comment on positive changes in even less time. Often, change is noted within just a few days.
How long will my microneedling results last?
Microneedling produces results through the stimulation of growth factors and collagen, thereby promoting new skin cells to surface. As our skin ages, our collagen production naturally slows down. Your overall result will last longer when you use an at-home skin care regimen that includes a daily Retinoid product.
Your medical provider is best suited to make this recommendation. New collagen and elastin formation in the skin are documented as visually and measurably improved as much as one year after just one treatment. However, a series of treatments is typically recommended for best results.
What will I look like after my microneedling treatment?
Microneedling is considered a no downtime treatment. Immediately after your treatment, your skin will look slightly pink to moderately red. Your medical provider will recommend skin care products for post-care based on your skin, which will greatly minimize these symptoms and enhance your overall results.
Can I use makeup after having my microneedling treatment?
Directly after your treatment we recommend using only mineral-based foundation, as it cannot build bacteria. You may go back to your regular foundation 4 days post-treatment.
It is not only what you put on your skin that matters but also how you tend to your entire body. At Skin Deep Aesthetics, we encourage nutritious food and adequate hydration. They are all connected. However, if you are feeling ill, have an malabsorption intestinal issue, or if you just need a boost, let us get you in the door. We’ll help you go back to your life quickly with an IV infusion.

Restore the look of youthfulness with a minimally invasive procedure that reduces the appearance of horizontal forehead lines, frown lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet around the eyes, and lines on the neck or around the lips. Neuromodulators can also be used for eyebrow lifts, correcting a gummy smile, and hyperhidrosis of the armpits.
Skin Deep Aesthetics currently uses the neuromodulators Dysport and Xeomin. Both of these are classified as botulinum toxin type A, which block the motor transmission signal from the facial nerves to the muscles, resulting in temporary muscle paralysis of the muscles.
Understand How Wrinkles Are Formed
Wrinkling is a prominent feature of skin aging. As skin ages, it naturally thins and loses volume over time as collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin diminish. Dynamic wrinkles occur during contraction of the underlying muscle.
Repeated muscle contraction in combination with natural aging processes and environmental factors (sun exposure, smoking) results in static lines, meaning the lines are prominently displayed on your face, even in a relaxed state. Neuromodulators help prevent the formation of static lines and reduces the severity of existing static lines.
Targeted muscles are carefully assessed during examination. With a keen eye and understanding of anatomy, precise doses of neuromodulators are carefully and strategically injected into the desired muscles using a very small needle. No anesthesia necessary! Careful techniques ensure natural-looking results.
Neuromodulator injections are a simple procedure without downtime or extended recovery. Mild redness, swelling or bruising may occur. You will be asked to refrain from applying pressure on your face, such as laying down, wearing a tight fitted cap, and facial massage.
For optimal results, it is best to avoid any activities that result in facial flushing such as exercising or using a sauna. You can resume heavy exercising after 24 hours.
Results in 3-7 days. Touch-ups can be completed in as early as 7 days after treatment and up to 2 weeks. Results last up to 4 months with the majority of clients happily receiving 3-4 treatments per year.

“I’ve recently received three treatments with the Collagen P.I.N. and have had great results. I noticed a difference in my acne scars and overall complexion within 1-2 days. My co-workers commented on how smooth and healthy my skin appeared one day after the first treatment. After each treatment I was a little red for about 3 days, a little dry and
light peeling. I returned to work the next day with little to no pain. I would highly recommend the Collagen P.I.N. treatment to anyone wanting to enhance their appearance;it truly does make a difference.”
“The Collagen P.I.N. has offered me the one and only treatment that has changed my face. I’m finally clear of acne with no tiny red scars remaining, much smaller pores, and my skin is tighter and more vibrant! The most amazing part for me was how comfortable the treatment was. I was even able to go out to dinner later that same evening with
friends. I never thought I would be comfortable not wearing foundation.”
