Microneedling in Portland is gaining prominence as a remarkable, state of the art method for rejuvenating the skin.
With the rise of regenerative therapy, we’re seeing more and more treatments that harness the body’s healing abilities to rejuvenate and restore the skin. Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling triggers our body’s natural regenerative properties to rebuild collagen and elastin in the skin. Using nothing more than a few incredibly fine needles, microneedling can achieve comprehensive skin rejuvenation that works on a wide range of conditions. There’s no sutures, lasers, or incisions needed—it’s just the patient and their skin.
With its advanced mechanism, microneedling is the key to rejuvenating your skin with no downtime and no painful recovery. More importantly, with microneedling, patients can enjoy rejuvenation that’s natural and comes entirely from their own bodies.
The Science of Microneedling
The Petroff Center uses a state-of-the-art device called the Rejuvapen for its microneedling in Portland. The Rejuvapen is an automatic, pen-like device that has nine small needles at the end, and it’s only available in physician’s offices. These needles are so fine that they won’t cause any substantial damage or scarring to the skin, but when they’re applied to the skin for microneedling, they create incredibly small “micro-wounds” that then activate our skin’s regenerative process. To heal the area affected by the micro wounds, our body increases production of collagen and elastic, as well as generates newer, fresher skin cells; this is essentially the same process that allows us to recover from scratches and cuts, but with microneedling’s controlled process, our patients will be able to enjoy naturally younger, fresher looking skin.

How We Perform Microneedling – Portland
Your microneedling in Portland can be performed right here in our medical office. Before the treatment, we’ll apply a numbing medicine to make sure the patient is comfortable. On average, the treatment takes 30-40 minutes to complete, and the patient will be able to return to their daily activities immediately after the treatment.
Your Microneedling Regimen
We highly recommend that patients undergo a series of multiple treatments to get the best microneedling results. The number of treatments will depend on the amount of correction that is needed, the condition of your skin, and what conditions you want to treat. The treatments should by spaced apart by a month to allow for healing.
We like to remind our patients that since microneedling depends on how well your body responds to your treatment, your results will appear gradually over time.
Your Recovery from Microneedling
Because microneedling is completely nonsurgical, our patients can enjoy their results with no downtime and no recovery period. Our patients who undergo microneedling in Portland might experience some redness and swelling in the treatment area—almost like a sunburn. These are only mild side effects, and they typically last for only 2-4 days (although this will all depend on how your skin responds to the microneedling treatment). Some of our patients have been able to heal after 24 hours.
