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.

Battling acne scars? Try SkinPen, the first FDA-cleared microneedling system.
Hai, I’m beauty expert. Cheryl Kramer Kaye and I am so excited to tell you about the skin care treatment I just tried called Skin Pen. I have been wanting to try Micro needling which is a treatment for acne scars and anti-aging, but i’ve been a little nervous, I mean, those needles can be scary, right? But then I learned about Bella’s Medical skin pen. Bella’s has conducted more than 90 validation tests on their skin pen and it is the first micro needling system cleared by the FDA. That means it is clinically proven to be a safe and effective treatment for facial acne scars for patients ages 22 and up. I also learned that the skin pen is the only micro needling device made in the USA, but it’s available in more than 35 countries and has been safely used on more than 10,000 customers. That’s what I needed to hear to finally try Micro needling and I’m so glad I did. So last week I went to see dermatologist Doris Dave and Doctor Dave and I agreed that the skin pen would be the right treatment for me. Take a look at this video of my procedure. Doctor Dave first applied a numbing agent to my skin and when that kicked in, she got started with the treatment. We’re going down into the skin and we’re going down into the deeper layer and this is skin fuse which I use as the glide helps it move along the skin and also as hydration in because as you disrupt the skin barrier you want to make sure you protect against water loss and create an optimal environment for healing. So, this is a tool that helps your body stimulate wound healing. But then I’m going to give it the resources to optimise that healing, always always combine it with great skin care. So, most treatments take 30 minutes and there’s little to no down time. I just looked a little flushed after the appointment, but I was able to go right back to work, and by the next day, I looked totally back to normal with a gorgeous glow to my skin, that hasn’t gone away. So, before you schedule your own appointment, you need to confirm that your provider is a licenced medical professional or supervised by a board-certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist. You also want to confirm that the micro needling device is FDA cleared or approved. That’s important because not all devices have the same clearance for safety and efficacy as Skin pen. What I love about the skin pen is that Bella’s medical has put a tonne of thought into patient safety. So, every treatment is sterile and completely safe. For example, skin Pen has a proprietary cartridge that has a single use lockout feature, so there’s no way the same cartridge can be used more than once and there is no risk for cross contamination. That, along with other safety features made me feel assured that I was being treated with the best and safest device on the market. So immediately after the treatment, your medical provider will apply skin fuse, which is a clean hydrogel that calms and moisturises your skin. I also went home with Bella’s Medical 90-day post procedure skin care kit called Skin Fuse which was designed with specific ingredients to enhance the benefits of your micro needling treatment. The need for follow up appointments depends on your skin condition and your goals, but typically as few as three treatments are needed spaced about 30 days apart. I love how my skin looks and feels and I’m not alone. In a clinical trial. 90 percent of subjects love their treatment so much that they would recommend skin pen to family and friends. I know I already have, so for more information you can go to skinpen.com and to find a skin pen provider near you go to bellasproviders.com. Your doctor will be able to fill you in on all the skin pen details.
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.
