There is no question that skin care has evolved tremendously over the past 10-15 years. Kansas City Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Chhatre and our experienced licensed estheticians, Heather Mock and Keri Eichhorn, have seen their fair share of great, not so great and mediocre treatments and fads hit the skin care market. With the internet and social media so prevalent now it's hard to decipher the legit treatments and products from the bogus inferior options. Something that we have always taken a great amount of pride in is that we do our research. As wonderful as all of the new treatments seem when they hit the market, we need to make sure that anything that we offer at Summit Plastic Surgery & MedSpa stands up to our high standards. We may not be the first Kansas City MedSpa to introduce the newest treatments, procedures or products, but when we do, we have decided after extensive research that we are moving forward with and offering the best option to deliver the best results to our clients.
Having said all of that, after some intense research and advanced training we are extremely excited to announce our newest medical skin care treatment to our Kansas City area Medi-spa, Microneedling with the Dermapen™. This procedure has been making a stance in the medical skin care industry and now we believe that we have the best option and staff training to deliver the optimal results to our clients.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a medical skin care treatment where Kansas City skin care specialists, Keri Eichhorn and Heather Mock, use an electric Dermapen™ that delivers fractionated channels into the skin, which in return initiates the bodies own wound healing response by replacing the injured tissue with new cells- elastin and collagen. The result is improved skin quality and appearance. The fractionated channels are delivered by Dermapen's™ unique springloaded Microderm Needle Cartridge™. The cartridge includes 12 tiny needles that glide over the skin providing the most efficient control, safety and comfort in the shortest time possible. With close to 1300 micro channels per second we are sure to deliver the best results, no matter what the skin condition, type or age. By choosing the Dermapen™ we are able to offer the deepest needle penetration to offer more aggressive treatments. Microneedling can be a minor procedure with minimal redness to more invasive with pin point bleeding, redness and swelling for 12-48 hours. Treatments are 100% customizable depending on skin type and thickness.

Who Benefits From Microneedling?
This minimally invasive and patient friendly procedure can be done on most skin types to treat most skin conditions. Sound too good to be true? It's not! With the option to adjust the needle length and speed of the Dermapen™, these procedures can be tailored to each skin type and thickness as well as location and condition. The spring loaded cartridge delivers verticle punctures anywhere on the body for controlled induction of the skin's self repair by creating precise micro injuries into the skin. The result of this process is cell manipulation which results in the transformation of new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibers, as well as, in new capillaries for improved blood supply, revealing brighter, healthier, younger looking skin. Since there is no heat involved in this procedure like light based treatments, there are no restrictions with skin type,color or sun exposure. This procedure can be done on any area of the body where younger, firmer, smoother, clearer and healthier skin is desired.
What Does Microneedling Treat?
Unlike most treatments there really isn't anything that the Dermapen™ can't treat. With being able to treat most skin colors, including tanned skin, we are able to offer treatments like never before. Microneedling will be perfect for you if you're wanting to treat any of the following skin conditions:
- acne/acne scarring
- fine lines/wrinkles
- skin laxity/skin tone
- improvement in skin quality
Depending on what you is being treated along with the severity will depend on how many treatments will be recommended. Starting with a series of 4-8 is going to give the best possible results. This treatment is also a great addition to your current skin care routine, whether it is Forever Young BBL treatments or routine facials. Microneedling dramatically increases the effectivness and penetration of topical skin care products into the skin. There are recommended products to use following the procedure that will assist with the results and insure that you see the best changes. Since no skin is the same, recommended product bundles will be specialized for each client depending on their specific skin condition and desired results. We will be offering mixtures of our different professional, clinical and medical skin care lines to make sure the best options are available.
