Microneedling and Dermaplaning in Austin, TX
MICRONEEDLING – $250
Microneedling (also called Collagen Induction Therapy) is a treatment to improve the overall texture of facial and body skin. This treatment can soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles, reduce superficial pigmentation and minimize scarring. Microneedling produces a controlled wound into the skin which triggers the release of growth factors therefore stimulating collagen and elastin.
A series of 3-6 treatments spaced 4-5 weeks apart is most beneficial. Stretch marks, deeper wrinkles and scars need 6+ treatments. All skin types will benefit and most areas of the body can be treated. The face, neck, décolletage, legs, abdomen, hands and back are the main areas treated however you will consult with a skin care professional regarding your goals. Not only does this technique cause less damage to the skin than traditional laser treatments or other ablative options, there’s little to no downtime.
Prior to micro-needling a topical numbing cream will be applied to ease discomfort. Patients should expect to experience pink to moderately red skin for 2-3 days. Minimal dryness can occur once the redness subsides. Light chemicals may be applied after the treatment to reap additional benefits. We ask that you avoid any topical corrective products 3-4 days before your treatment.
Mineral makeup can be worn 24-48 hours after treatment. Results from micro-needling can be seen in as little as 3-4 days and the long term benefit upon completion of a series of treatments can last months. Micro-needling coupled with quality skin care products including peptides and retinols will produce more dramatic and long lasting results.
Your skincare professional will provide you with detailed product information to ensure your aware of what options are available to you.

DERMAPLANING – $160
Dermaplaning is an exfoliation technique that safely and temporarily removes vellus hair (peach fuzz). In addition it safely and effectively removes dead surface cells. Dead surface cells cause your skin to look dull. This treatment is safe on all skin types and there is no downtime. Therefore it’s perfect for anyone with sensitive skin, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, and mild scarring. This exfoliation technique is a great alternative to chemical peels, microdermabrasion and waxing.
Removing dead skin on the face will allow professional skin care products to absorb more effectively. Dermaplaning takes 30-45 minutes and can be done every few weeks. Included in this treatment is an exfoliating enzyme, a skin specific mask and finishing products. Sunscreen is imperative on a daily basis and even more so after this type of exfoliation.
A chemical peel may be added to a dermaplaning treatment for more dramatic results (+$40)
