Discover transformative microneedling in McLean, VA. Our microneedling treatment revitalizes your skin, promoting collagen production for a radiant complexion. Here at Birem, MD Beauty & Wellness, we use microneedling with the SkinPen®. It works by creating microscopic openings on the skin’s surface using tiny needles. Due to the depth of needle penetration being adjustable depending on the patient and the skin condition being treated, the treatment is highly customizable. New collagen and elastin are generated by creating small openings in the skin, resulting in smoother and firmer skin.

Microneedling is often known as Collagen Induction Therapy since it increases the amount of collagen in your skin. As we age, collagen naturally diminishes, which is why youthful, smooth skin is supported by it. Microneedling leads to plumper, smoother, and firmer skin by stimulating collagen production (as well as elastin). Experience the rejuvenating benefits of our expert microneedling services.

Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure, and your face will remain red for about 24 hours afterward. Do not apply facial cosmetics during this period. Although concealing redness with makeup is tempting, you should avoid applying makeup or other facial cosmetics for best results.

It is normal to experience some peeling, swelling, dryness, and bumps for 24 to 48 hours.
