Micro-Needling Therapy Microneedling Facial
Micro-needling therapy is a technique in which multiple tiny micro-needles are vertically applied to the skin via a Micro-needling pen. This controlled “damage” to the skin harnesses the body’s own injury response to rejuvenate and repair the skin through the proven science of collagen stimulation.

What Is The Micro-Needling Pen?
The micro-needling pen is a medical-grade, state-of-the-art precision tool available through John W. Tyrone, MD, PLLC, Plastic Surgery’s plastic surgery office in Gainesville, FL. It is designed to address acne scars, hyper-pigmentation, stretch marks, skin texture as well as fine lines and wrinkles. Microneedling is designed to stimulate your skin’s natural ability to procedure new collagen formation, creating healthier skin. The repair process of your skin is accelerated by the micro-needling pen therapy through the creation of microscopic channels, which allows products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin resulting in better product outcomes.

Due to the noninvasive nature and minimal risk of adverse effects of micro-needling pen therapy, nearly every patient is a candidate. Factors such as age, thin skin, or skin texture do not matter as the therapy can be easily regulated to the unique needs of each patient.
