Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, has been used in Germany since 1905. The procedure relies on your body’s own healing powers and collagen production to improve skin tone and texture. At VIDA Aesthetic Medicine, we use the SkinPen Precision, which is the first FDA-cleared microneedling device. VIDA offers topical numbing for your comfort and is committed to going above and beyond to ensure your treatment is as comfortable as possible.

Microneedling works because the body’s natural reaction to controlled injury is to flush the area with natural growth factors and platelets that stimulate the healing process and essentially “make collagen.” Collagen is the body’s natural fountain of youth, but all of us produce less of it as we age.

Microneedling at VIDA

As microneedling becomes more widespread and popular, it’s important to find a clinic you can really trust—one with a sterling reputation and years of experience. VIDA is much more than a MedSpa and is the best choice in Salem and the Willamette Valley for your microneedling treatments. 

The knowledge, skill, and experience of the provider can also make a world of difference. Our experienced providers are committed to taking care of you and your skin’s health with microneedling treatments tailored to your individual goals.

There’s a reason microneedling has remained one of the most popular treatments for years. It really works, can be used on any skin tone, and there’s no downtime. Microneedling can treat a variety of skin concerns, including acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, lax skin, and poor skin texture. It’s the perfect treatment for anyone who wants visible results, healthier and younger-looking skin, and minimal to no recovery period. However, microneedling is also commonly used to complement a number of other treatments, like Botoxdermal fillers, and submental (below the chin) CoolSculpting with the new CoolMini treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many microneedling sessions will I need?2020-02-08T08:55:02-08:00

Most clients benefit from regular microneedling treatments every 3–6 months. However, your ideal schedule will depend on your skin and your goals.

How quickly will I see Microneedling results?2020-02-08T08:54:27-08:00

Microneedling works because it depends on your body for healing. Results aren’t immediate, but you will start to see and feel smoother, softer skin about two weeks after treatment. Full results are achieved 12 weeks after each session, with maximum collagen rebuilding happening at three months after your last treatment.

Can I immediately go back to work after microneedling?2020-02-08T08:55:43-08:00

Yes. There are no restrictions after microneedling, and you can get right back to your daily activities. It’s possible to look a little flushed after the procedure, kind of like you spent your lunch break in the sun. However, depending on the level of treatment, you can have redness and swelling for a few days. Make-up can be applied 24 hours after every treatment so you can get back to your normal daily activities.

Does microneedling hurt?2020-02-08T08:53:47-08:00

Although everyone’s pain tolerance differs, most have minimal discomfort during the treatment. We offer topical numbing to our clients, and comfort is our highest priority.

The Magic of Microneedling

It’s actually not magic; it’s your body’s ability to heal! Most of our clients opt for a full-face microneedling session. Microneedling can also be performed on the neck, abdomen, and virtually any other place on the body. Microneedling is a treatment that reveals its best results after multiple sessions. Most clients prefer to schedule regular microneedling treatments every few months to optimize and sustain their results. You can reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improve your skin’s texture, and diminish imperfections all by using the power of collagen induction therapy.
