You probably already exfoliate at home, but is it giving you the results you want? Microneedling at our Anchorage medical spa can do what washcloths and scrubs can’t—stimulate your skin’s collagen development and reduce the look of several common skin concerns. Women and men visit FACES Med Spa for microneedling from Wasilla, Palmer, and surrounding areas to renew their skin’s texture and tone.
Our highly-trained providers look forward to meeting you and answering all of your questions.Request My Consultation
How It Works
At ACENT, we offer 2 types of microneedling—the SkinPen® microneedling device and Genius® high-intensity focused radiofrequency (RF) microneedling. Both treatments are cleared by the FDA for stimulating new collagen and elastin production.
SkinPen, a pen-shaped device fitted with a number of fine, sterile needles at its tip, causes micro-injuries on the outermost layers of skin. These micro-injuries trigger the body to create more collagen and elastin. Microneedling improves both the texture and tone of the skin. It can also reduce the look of stretch marks and acne scars. SkinPen is the only microneedling device that’s approved by the FDA.
Genius RF Microneedling
Adding radiofrequency (RF) technology and a state-of-the-art delivery platform to the microneedling process, Genius enables your provider to customize the treatment with unparalleled precision. Genius delivers RF energy through tiny, sterile insulated needles. The thermal energy targets precise locations and depths in the skin while reducing damage to the skin’s surface. This stimulates both collagen and elastin to tighten skin and smooth imperfections, making it a good option for patients who are seeking an anti-aging procedure with minimal downtime.
You can discuss whether SkinPen or Genius RF microneedling is best for you at your consultation.
I have been going to the Medical Spa for several years and have been enormously pleased with how they've kept up with the latest technology and available treatments. They provide me with the information I need to make good decisions, don't keep me waiting when I arrive and always make sure I am comfortable throughout the procedures. [They] explain what [they are] doing and adjust [their] pace to fit my tolerance, if necessary. I have been quite pleased with the results I've had from the Medical Spa.D 48-year-old, skin care patient
What to Expect
When you visit our office in Anchorage for microneedling, we first apply a topical anesthetic to your skin to keep you comfortable. Your provider then moves the microneedling device across your skin, as it works quickly to make micro-injuries in your skin.
After your treatment, which likely won’t exceed an hour, your skin will appear pink or red. It may also feel inflamed, as if you have a moderate sunburn. Other side effects include dryness, tightness, redness, itchiness, and flaking. However, these symptoms are usually self-limiting and resolve within 2 days.
Patients with moderate to severe acne scarring will likely benefit from multiple treatments. A series of 3 treatments is appropriate for reducing certain signs of aging.
If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have active acne breakouts, microneedling isn’t a good match for you. However, we can recommend other treatments, such as a facial or dermaplaning, that can safely give you the results you want.
We offer single sessions as well as packages of 3 treatments. During your consultation, we’ll work with you to recommend the best possible solution for you.
