Microneedling RESURFACING and FACIAL treatments are our specialties at Bonakdar Aesthetics, a state-of-the-art cosmetic dermatology facility that has been offering microneedling treatments since 2012.
As this novel treatment has developed, Dr. Bonakdar has upgraded our devices multiple times. We currently own one of only two microneedling devices in the USA that have been cleared by the FDA and are legal to use.
Bonakdar Aesthetics offers a menu of customized microneedling treatments to treat various skin needs and aesthetic goals. Our device has a 12-needle tip, which we use for no downtime microneedling FACIALS. For more on microneedling RESURFACING click here. For more on microneedling FACIALS read on.
Microneedling is a non-laser skin resurfacing treatment that improves the tone and texture of the skin and reduces surface skin imperfections. Microneedling FACIAL is the no downtime form of this procedure and is ideal for those looking to replace their monthly facial with a more result-oriented but still no downtime service.
Microneedling benefits include:
Microneedling is a fractional treatment, meaning that a fraction of the skin is treated at a time.
The treatment is performed using an automated stamping pen with a tip composed of 12 microneedles to stamp tiny punctures into the skin. The body responds to micro-injuries from aesthetic procedures much like it does to traumatic injuries and initiates the wound healing cascade.
This means improved circulation and oxygenation to the skin, as well as increased production of new collagen and elastin, which builds and nourishes skin tissue. As with other fractional treatments, the surrounding untreated areas of skin heal the micro-treatment zones rapidly and initiate the production of collagen, elastin, and new skin cells. The most commonly treated areas include the face, neck, and chest, but microneedling may also be performed on other areas of the body such as the back or buttocks.
Each microneedling treatment is customized in a variety of ways at Bonakdar Aesthetics based on your skin health and the treatment goals.
Microneedling stamping action produces micro-channels in the skin that allow absorption of topically applied active products to the deep layers of the skin. Topicals selected include anti-aging booster for color, texture and hydration improvements, PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma for increased healing and collagen stimulation, and chemical peels for enhanced peeling and rejuvenation.
No. Even though a microneedling FACIAL would be tolerable without numbing cream, we start every microneedling session with an application of topical anesthetic to the skin for 30 minutes. At Bonakdar Aesthetics, we aim to deliver a comfortable procedure and a remarkable experience.
A typical FACIAL treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.
Microneedling FACIALS are recommended every four weeks.
While outcomes vary depending on the treatment level and customization, FACIAL results are visible 24-48 hours after the procedure and continue for the next month to three months.
Both treatments are very comfortable for the patient and produce significant improvement in the health and appearance of the skin. Both treatments work in the same manner, except that Vivace combines a radiofrequency component with microneedling which surprisingly lessens the treatment downtime but improves the treatment results.
This slight difference results in less downtime and better treatment results with Vivace. If you choose to combine Vivace with PRP treatments, the skin will be pink to red immediately post-treatment. There is no downtime.
At best, home dermarollers are ineffective, and at worst, they are unsafe. In a professional microneedling device, the needles are used once and then discarded. But home dermarollers are used repeatedly, increasing the risk of skin infection and irritation. Because of the way they are constructed, these devices cannot be cleaned properly and may begin to harbor viruses, fungi, and bacteria which are then introduced into the skin with the next use.
Dermaroller needles also get dull and therefore instead of resulting in superficial micro-treatment zones, they may cause deep injury and even scarring.
Dr. Bonakdar recommends you throw away home dermarollers and come into Bonakdar Aesthetics for a top-quality, professional microneedling treatment that will leave your skin looking fresh and renewed.
