EsthetixMD offers customized skin care that addresses your various concerns. By consulting with one of our experienced clinicians, you can discover the benefits of light and microneedling therapies as they relate to the appearance and overall health of your skin.
What is microneedling?
Microneedling is an innovative treatment that works based on the skin’s ability to heal and rejuvenate itself under the right circumstances. Using our adjustable SkinPen tip, we promote the synthesis of healthy new tissue by penetrating the skin with thousands of invisible microchannels. Our pen has nine needles that can reach depths ranging from .2 to 2.5mm.
Manufactured by Bellus Medical, SkinPen stands alone as the only device of its kind to achieve FDA clearance. As such, it’s clinically proven to reduce the appearance of acne scars on the face, and on light and dark skin. In fact, six months post-treatment, Bellus Medical notes 90 percent of patients reported continued improvement in the look of their scars. FDA clearance is further validation of Skin Pen’s safety; to achieve this designation, SkinPen components successfully underwent a rigorous three-year evaluation process that spanned 90-plus requirements, including biocompatibility testing to ensure the materials were not harmful to patients’ skin cells.
Will these microchannels show on my skin?
Your body responds to the microchannels made by SkinPen by increasing the production of both collagen and the essential growth factors that are released to heal wounds. The beauty of microneedling is that the “wounds” we create cannot be seen with the naked eye! After treatment, you may notice a healthy pink glow to your skin. In some cases, slight redness may develop, but this will diminish quickly.
How long does it take to see results from light therapy or microneedling?
We tailor a treatment program of microneedling, or LED light therapy based on your immediate and long-term goals. These treatments promote progressive rejuvenation. While your skin will show signs of improvement right away, you will continue to notice younger looking skin for a while after your initial session.

EsthetixMD – SkinPen
Is microneedling safe for all skin tones?
Yes. No post-treatment inflammation or hyperpigmentation has been reported, regardless of skin tone or type.
Is there a risk of infection due to micro-channels in the skin?
- The tiny “wounds” created by hypo-allergenic needles are so tiny that they close within an hour after treatment. This makes the risk of infection nearly non-existent.
LED Light Therapy
What is LED Light Therapy?
Light Emitting Diodes (LED) therapy has been around for years. This type of light is applied for aesthetic treatments that promote healthy and youthful skin. The wavelengths delivered by our LED device penetrate deeply into the skin – up to one inch! Cellular energy is further promoted, as is collagen production stimulated by red light LED. The result? Plump, smooth skin. Goodbye wrinkles and fine lines!
What does LED Light Therapy treat?
We offer both blue and red-light therapies to target specific concerns. LED light therapy comfortably treats redness, stretch marks, sun damage, and other concerns. This pampering treatment is relaxing and requires no downtime for the skin to recover. It is safe and beneficial for all skin types and tones.
When specific wavelengths of red light enter skin cells, the metabolism is enhanced. In addition to collagen stimulation, circulation to the treated area also improves, which improves function within the lymphatic system.
Significant scientific data exists, showing that LED light promotes the regeneration of healthy tissue, and promotes wound healing. In addition to patient testimonials, clinical research has been conducted by NASA. The FDA has cleared numerous LED devices for treating acne and other skin conditions.
Results from your LED light treatment can be maintained with monthly touch-ups as needed. This will depend on the age and condition of your skin. Treatment may be complemented with other services, such as injectables.
