Turn back the clock and revitalize your skin with microneedling, available in the Des Moines area at our Ankeny, IA dermatology clinic and spa. This form of collagen induction therapy replenishes lost collagen, giving your complexion a youthful boost.

How Does Microneedling Work?

Microneedling uses tiny needles to create micro-injuries in your skin’s surface, which springs your body’s natural regenerative response into action. This leads to the new production of collagen and elastin, the building blocks behind healthy, youthful skin.

What Does Microneedling Treat?

Microneedling treats several different concerns on both the face and body, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Scarring
  • Stretch marks
  • Uneven texture
  • Sun damage

If you’re looking for skin tightening as well, you may be a candidate for RF microneedling, which adds in radiofrequency energy to encourage deeper rejuvenation

What Is It Like To Have Microneedling Done?

Your experienced provider will start by applying a topical anesthetic to your skin to keep you comfortable throughout your treatment. Next, your provider will pass the handheld microneedling device over your skin, creating a series of tiny punctures. Your treatment concludes with an application of some protective skincare products and instructions for aftercare.

What Is Recovery Like After Microneedling?

You can expect to have some redness for 2 to 3 days as your skin heals. You’ll need to avoid wearing makeup until your skin is fully healed to prevent any blockages or breakouts. Using gentle, unscented products and wearing plenty of sunscreen will help your skin heal beautifully.

Stef Gatica is kind, caring and professional. She went out of her way to help me after being rejected by 2 other clinics. I received filler and botox and the results are amazing. Her staff is also kind and made me feel comfortable. I would refer Revive to anyone and will continue to see Stef for more procedures, she is the BEST!
