MDPen® microneedling in Charlotte is a treatment that reduces sagging skin, stretch marks, wrinkles, scars, enlarged pores, and more by stimulating collagen and elastin production.

The device uses microneedles to create controlled injuries in the deeper layers of the skin. This process activates the body’s natural healing process without the risk of damaging the surface of the skin.

At White Diamond Medical Clinic and Spa, MDPen® microneedling is performed by highly trained professionals to ensure a safe and effective skin-rejuvenation treatment. Schedule a consultation at our clinic to learn more about the benefits of microneedling for your skin concerns.

Why try MDPen® microneedling?

Innovative and effective, MDPen® microneedling activates your body’s natural cellular regeneration to help tighten and lift skin, while minimizing many common skin problems. MDPen® microneedling in Charlotte is used for skin revitalization and can be used in conjunction with other treatments.

How does MDPen® microneedling improve the skin’s appearance?

MDPen® microneedling rapidly creates a pattern of micro channels in the treatment area that significantly increases the production of collagen and elastin to leave the skin smoother, fresher, and more uniform. Micro channels also create micro injuries which causes the body to send blood and growth factors to the area resulting in glowing, healthy skin. Microneedling may help address wrinkles, acne, scarring, and stretch marks.

Am I a good candidate for MDPen® microneedling?

The ideal candidates for MDPen® microneedling are people who want to remove acne scars, address the signs of aging, or resolve enlarged pores, stretch marks, or keloid scarring. Patients looking for a minimally invasive treatment are ideal.

It is important that a microneedling candidate is in good overall health. MDPen® microneedling may not be right for people with bleeding disorders or who take blood thinners. It may not be recommended for those with active acne, diabetes, eczema, or a weakened immune system.

How to prepare for an MDPen® microneedling treatment

Before your MDPen® microneedling treatment, you will need to prepare properly in order to achieve the best results.

A week before the session, stop taking anti-inflammatory medicine, blood thinners, and herbal supplements. This will prevent excessive bruising and swelling after the microneedling treatment.

Avoid waxing, IPL, or any other hair-removal treatment one week before your microneedling session. These treatments can make your skin prone to skin irritation. You may shave on the day of your appointment before you arrive at the clinic.

Three days before your microneedling appointment, take a break from anything containing retinol, glycolic acid, or salicylic acid, along with astringents, bleaching creams, and other exfoliating skincare products. These will make your skin sensitive and may cause excessive bruising if taken within three days of your microneedling session.

What to expect from a MDPen® microneedling consultation

The initial consultation will help determine if microneedling is suitable for you. Your skin will be examined, your medical history will be reviewed, and your goals will be discussed. Photos may be taken for before-and-after comparison.

You should use the consultation as the ideal opportunity to ask questions about the treatment, from what will happen during the procedure to how much it will cost, so you can make an informed decision.

What is MDPen® microneedling like?

Before microneedling, the skin will be prepared by cleaning it and applying a numbing ointment. After 30 to 45 minutes, this ointment will take effect.

Then, the MDPen® will be used to perform microneedling evenly in the treatment areas, which will leave micro channels on the top layer of the skin. This stimulates production of collagen and elastin, making the skin look healthy, bright, smooth, and fresh.

What is aftercare like?

Little to no downtime/recovery time will be needed following your microneedling session. The skin might be pinkish and swollen a day after the treatment. It might feel tight, but you can moisturize your face using non-comedogenic serums.

Protect your face with sunscreen, and use only sterile makeup applicators. You can resume your regular skincare routine, but avoid an alcohol-based toner until 10 days after the procedure.

Once the pinkness and swelling subside, you will be able to see the effects of MDPen® microneedling. These effects will improve over time as new collagen and elastin is produced.

Since MDPen® microneedling is a treatment that improves signs of skin aging, it is highly recommended to avoid lifestyle choices that can reverse the effects of the treatment. Please avoid prolonged sun exposure, smoking, and drinking alcohol to enjoy the full benefits of the treatment.
