What is Micro Needling?
Micro needling is a collagen induction therapy that will rejuvenate your skin. Micro needling is used for the improvement of fine lines, wrinkles, skin tone, texture and to reduce scarring.
WHY CHOOSE CASCADE SKIN AND LASER?
Dr. Schulz uses the latest technological Reguva pen that penetrates the skin with tiny needles to create microscopic channels into the dermal layer. Combining micro needling and growth factors will stimulate the body’s natural healing processes and regenerate collagen within the skin.
This procedure is minimally invasive. The very fine needles in the pen create micro-injury to the tissues of the face, neck, décolletage and even hands. This removes discoloration and improves skin elasticity.
MICRONEEDLING VS OTHER TREATMENTS SUCH AS LASERS OR CHEMICAL PEELS
- Micro needling is suitable for all skin types, including darker skin tones where lasers can cause hypo pigmentation
- There is a very short downtime with no risk of peeling or shedding of skin.
- Makeup can be applied 8-10 hours after treatment.
- Risk of experiencing side effects is minimal
- Long lasting effects with minimal investment. (we recommend 3-6 treatments for maximum benefit, but you will notice improvement after just one treatment)
WILL MICRO NEEDLING IMPROVE THE APPEARANCE OF ACNE AND SURGICAL SCARS?
Yes! Dr. Alison adjusts the pen to varying depths to penetrate scar tissue.
This breaks down scar structure and stimulates the formation of new collagen. Micro needling can be used to improve depressed scars such as acne scars, stretch marks, and also raised scars or surgical scars.
Typically, more than one scar treatment is needed. Over the course of a series of treatments, the scar will become softer and more evenly toned.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?
For optimal results we recommend a series of three treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart. For scar revision, more treatments may be needed depending on the severity of the scar. Dr. Alison will talk with you during your free consult to determine your best option.

We normally prefer free consultations to determine the best treatment option for your skin condition. Micro needling treatments can be between 150-400$ depending on the size of the skin area treated, and the number of serums used. Most of Dr. Alison's patients are pleasantly surprised at the overall cost that achieves the desired results.
