Microneedling & Selphyl
Why go to New York or Beverly Hills, when you can get experienced care and the latest treatments at the Center For Smart Lipo in Langhorne, PA. We were one of the first cosmetic treatment centers to combine Microneedling and Selphyl, giving patients more incredible, longer-lasting results. The Microneedling Selphyl combination is used to treat acne scarring, stretch marks, fine lines, and wrinkles – and it’s great for all skin types!
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is an automated handheld device that is used to rejuvenate skin by stimulating collagen production. Microneedling can be used to treat a number of skin conditions including:
- Acne scarring and other scars
- Reduce the appearance of large pores
- Minimize stretch marks
- Tighten the skin, reduce wrinkles and fine lines
Microneedling can be used anywhere on the body. The most popular treatment area is the face, used to treat acne scars, pigmentation problems, and wrinkles. Microneedling can also be used on other parts of the body to treat stretch marks, burn wounds, and surgical scars.
Microneedling: What to Expect
Microneedling is a simple, minimally invasive procedure that is performed in our Langhorne cosmetic treatment center. The Microneedling system uses tiny needles that vertically pierce the skin. The depth of treatment can be adjusted to meet the needs and goals of the patient.
Using the Selphyl® System, our physicians can produce platelet-rich fibrin matrix (PRFM) from the patient’s own blood. Diane will drip drop the Selphyl serum into the channels in the skin created by Microneedling.
The results are fantastic! As the skin heals from the Microneedling treatment combined with PRFM, the body rebuilds stronger and better with increased volume and improved skin texture.
Microneedling & Selphyl Treatment has a three-phase method for success:
Phase 1: Stimulation
The first phase is the physical treatment. Microneedling is applied to the skin to cause injury to the desired area. Selphyl is added to the treatment area to help improve growth factors and promote collagen production and epidermal growth.
Phase 2: Healing
After treatment, the skin begins to heal itself, producing collagen, elastin, and healthy new skin cells.
Phase 3: Skin Tightening
The final phase is skin tightening. As the skin is rejuvenated, it appears tighter and smoother, eliminating fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin texture.
How many treatments do I need?
The number of treatments needed varies based on the skin condition and aesthetic goals of the individual. Most patients will see a noticeable improvement with just one session, however, multiple sessions will produce the best results. Microneedling treatments will be spaced several weeks apart to promote optimal healing and cosmetic outcomes.
Is Microneedling painful?
Dermapen is a relatively comfortable treatment. Pain associated with Microneedling varies based on the individual’s tolerance as well as the depth of treatment. We may use a numbing cream to reduce pain during and immediately after the procedure.
How long do the results of Microneedling and Selphyl last?
For the treatment of acne scarring and stretch marks, Microneedling and Selphyl combined therapy will deliver permanent results. For fine lines and wrinkles, most patients see results that last up to 2 years or longer.*
