Microneedling is a fantastic way to refresh your complexion.
The Breazeale Clinic uses the SkinPen® to create multiple micro-sized punctures on the skin’s surface and in so doing, it brings blood flow and encourages the generation of collagen and elastin, components vital to a youthful appearance. The Breazeale Clinic offers Microneedling services with or without PRP. (Learn more about PRP here.)

Benefits of Microneedling:
- Wrinkle reduction, texture, tone improvement and softer, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. New collagen production reverses years of sun damage. SkinPen® also has a positive effect on hyper-pigmentation as well as treating uneven skin tone, acne scars, traumatic scars, and stretch marks.
Side Effects of Microneedling:
- After the procedure, the skin will be red and flushed in appearance in a way similar to a moderate sunburn. You may also experience skin tightness and mild sensitivity to touch on the area being treated. This will diminish greatly after a few hours following treatments and within the next 24 hours the skin will be completely healed. After 2 days, most visible erythema will be absolved.
- Keloid scars; history of eczema, psoriasis, and other chronic conditions; history of actinic (solar) keratosis; history of Herpes Simplex infections; history of diabetes; presence of raised moles, warts on targeted area. Absolute contraindications include scleroderma, collagen vascular diseases or cardiac abnormalities, blood clotting problems, active bacterial or fungal infection, immuno-suppression. Not recommended for women who are pregnant or nursing.
