STRATAPEN Microneedling

 Stratapen is a minimally invasive procedure used for skin rejuvenation.  It also works for many other skin conditions from acne scarring to assisting with tattoo removal.

It is helpful in improving many conditions including:

  • Anti-aging
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Enlarged pores
  • Surgical scars
  • Acne scars
  • Texture
  • Laxity
  • Pigmentation such as melasma 
  • Tattoo removal (typically used with laser tattoo removal)

It is safe for all skin types and colors.  The micro-injuries we make in your skin trigger a natural healing response or a sort of  “remodeling” process.  Your body brings in collagen and elastin which creates the most change.

The benefit to doing this procedure vs a laser is that micro needling has a much faster healing process.   After a laser procedure your skin has to come in and remove the damaged tissue before it can bring in collagen and elastin to heal.  With Micro needling there is no damaged tissue to remove just small needle holes to fill.


What to expect during and after the procedure

  • A topical anesthetic can be applied for comfort
  • Redness, swelling, and itching are the most common side effects
  • During a more aggressive treatment light bleeding and more discomfort
  • Social downtime is 1-2 days with a possible light peeling
  • Results are best after a series of treatments

Treatment costs can vary from $50-300 per treatment.
