Microneedling Demo with Dr. Lamel at Pacific Dermatology & Cosmetic Center


– Hey you guys, this is Doctor Sonia Lamel
at Pacific Dermatology & Cosmetic Center. And today we are doing some microneedling. It’s great in all skin types actually it’s
great for pore size, fine lines, wrinkles and all sorts of different types of pigmentation. All right let’s get started. So we start by putting a little bit of medical
grade hyaluronic acid all over the face and by doing the microneedling after that it actually
helps with the penetration of hyaluronic acid so it gives your skin a boost of moisture
to. All right Cheryl, are you ready? – I’m ready. – Okay. And now it just kind of panes along and all
these little tinny tiny needles are going up and down and doing all of the hard work
for us. And you can see she’s getting a little bit
of pinpoint needing which is what we want. She’s getting nice wounding of the skin. So we apply a topical numbing cream not some
lidocaine in it. She already has beautiful skin so really what
we’re going for is just a decrease in the pore size and a little bit of the fine lines
that you know happen as we get older but she really doesn’t have many of so. So Cheryl’s lucky that she doesn’t have any
scars or acne scarring but what we can do for those patients is actually be a little
bit more aggressive in those area’s and really scamp down with the needles. There’s a bunch of tiny little 33 gauge needles
that are going in and out of the skin and I’m just to create little tiny wounds and
not destroying the whole skin and the benefit of that is that healing happens really fast
because you heal for from the surrounding islands of skin and then also from the hair
follicles. Okay so we just finished Cheryl’s microneedling
treatment as you can see she’s nice and red and so now is the important time when you
want to put some good products on so they can really penetrate the skin. So we already put the hyaluronic acid and
now we’re gonna put some of this awesome anti-oxidant serum and that’s really gonna penetrate deep
into those little channels that we’ve just created. Anti-oxidants are really great at repairing
all of the damage that happens to our skin during the day from all the pollutants in
the environment, the oxidants, the UV light and things that penetrate our skin. And then also just the normal by-products
of you know cellular repair that happen on a day to day basis as our skin is staying
nice and alive. I actually like when my patients leave their
face all bloody for the rest of the day and actually if possible not wash it until the
following morning and really just layer on moisture. That’s gonna help all of these growth factors
and cytokines from her own blood really penetrate into the skin and just improve her results. She’s gonna start to notice results pretty
quickly after she heals up about four days out but the collagen synthesis that occurs
after the treatment is gonna occur for months so she’ll see some benefits of just smoother
fresher skin right away and then she’ll see the benefits of the collagen remodeling for
many months. So if you’re interested in learning more about
microneedling call us today, Cheryl and I are happy to do a consultation with you and
determine if mirconeedling is right for your skin. Thanks so much, this is Doctor Lamel and Cheryl. Cheryl. At Pacific Dermatology & Cosmetic Center. And I just had my first microneedling yah. Who hoo.
