At Miami Dermatology and Laser Institute Melissa Troha, a board-certified physician assistant, offers several microneedling technologies to residents of Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and Kendall, as well as the surrounding communities. Microneedling can help reduce fine lines, wrinkles and improve the overall appearance of the skin on the face.
Aquagold® Fine Touch™
Aquagold® Fine Touch™ is a microneedling technology that delicately delivers a wide range of therapeutics directly into the skin to help improve fine lines and increase skin hydration. Aquagold® enables the collagen stimulation process to produce an enhanced cosmetic effect. It is a comfortable treatment due to the use of very fine microneedles that minimize pain and bleeding. Each microneedle is thinner than a human hair. Aquagold® is used for the delivery of the agents of choice directly into the dermal layer of the skin. The microneedles create tiny pores in the skin, and the solutions then travel down through the microneedle surfaces and into the pores. Topical solutions, including botulinum toxins, hyaluronic acid fillers, growth factors, and skin care serums, may be used with Aquagold®.
The expert board-certified dermatologists at Miami Dermatology and Laser Institute will customize a microneedling treatment for each individual patient based on their skin condition and treatment goals.
Dermapen® is an advanced and safe microneedling system with disposable tips that have a total of 12 microneedles. This system provides a wide range of therapeutic benefits to help reduce the visibility of scars, acne, fine lines, wrinkles, and enlarged pores. It can be used for the face, chest, and body areas, as needed. Dermapen® is used to improve the overall condition and quality of the skin, and to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.
Immediately following a Dermapen® treatment, your skin may be slightly flushed and sensitive to the touch. The discomfort will resolve in the next 24 hours and in a few days your skin will be healed. Since the role of the Dermapen® procedure is primarily to stimulate your natural collagen and elastin production, you will continue to see improvement in texture and tone over the next several weeks.
