I’m very excited to introduce the 3MD advanced Microneedling to Seattle Skin and Laser! We can now enhance your rejuvenation treatments and compliment your skin care needs at a deeper level without the down time.

Similar to fractional laser, but without resurfacing, the 3MD glides over the skin creating fractional micro-channeling to help in transdermal delivery of hyaluronic acid which helps heal the tissue, stimulate collagen production and increase hydration. We will be using the 3MD to treat the appearance of aging skin, vertical lip lines, vitiligo, hyperpigmentation, skin tightening, enlarged pores, stretch marks, scars (acne, surgical and burns), and alopecia.

Depending on the skin type and what we are treating, a series of treatments may be recommended. Microneedling can work in conjunction with laser treatments such as IPL, Genesis, Titan and Exilis as well as chemical peels. It can also improve areas that filler cannot get to like the delicate areas under the eyes and fine lines. Results may vary depending on skin. Typically, you will see results with one treatment. Lasting and more significant results will become visible after 4 to 6 treatments. You’ll continue to gain results for 6 months after that. You’ll want to maintain benefits with a healthy skin care protocol. We will recommend a few specific products like Skin Ceuticals H.A. Intensifier or PCA’s hyaluronic acid boosting serum and Skin Medica’s TNS Recovery Complex to add to your daily  regimen.

During your appointment, we will apply a topical anesthetic, so the treatment is virtually pain free. Most patients experience redness for 12 to 48 hours after the treatment. Usually patients are able to return to normal daily activities the next day.

I’m happy to be able to offer a new corrective treatment that gives excellent results and won’t cause my clients to have to ‘hide out’ for several days.
