Have you ever heard of Needling?!

We had the opportunity to visit Essence MedSpa & Wellness Center and learn about one of their most popular treatments, needling! It sounds exactly as it it, rolling needles on your face!

It’s known as micro-needling, derma-rolling, or the very-technical-sounding Percutaneous Collagen Induction (PCI).  Don’t let all the names confuse you, the results are always the same!  Needling is performed to rejuvenate facial skin and really look young, we need a perfect epidermis, good hydration, normal color and normal resilience.


The main reasons that someone would have needling performed are:

•    Restore skins elasticity
•    Fine lines and wrinkles
•    Acne scarring/other scars
•    Works in synergy with other procedures for optimal results
•    Stretch marks

This state of the art treatment uses a small handheld rolling device called a derma roller which provides clear channels for topical gels and creams to be absorbed more effectively and helps vitamins penetrate through the top layer of the skin.  Skin becomes thicker, with greater than 400% increase in collagen and significantly more elastic helping you rejuvenate your skin. Effective for all skin types, even those with darker pigmented skin, and able to do on any part of the body.  Skin also does not become sun sensitive and healing phase is short.

Is it Painful? Some patients describe the treatment as being only “mildly uncomfortable”. In addition, we apply a topical anesthetic before each treatment. (We’ve done it and with the topical numbing cream it’s a breeze!) Needling is safe, cost effective and simple, AND it produces dramatic results immediately!

We’ve done this 3x times so far (once a month) and we have seen the improvements in our skin, it glows! When you see us out we have Essence MedSpa & Wellness center to thank for it!!!! We personally recommend this is a life changing experience and we swear by it!!!!
