Facials Q & A
What types of facials are available?
Dr. Averilla and her team offer personalized facials for all of your skin care concerns, including:
- Acne and oily skin
- Dry, sensitive skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Dull, sagging skin
Facials can clear up problem areas and rejuvenate your skin so you can enjoy a smoother, brighter complexion. Dr. Averilla also performs professional-grade Dermapen® facials to improve skin elasticity and fullness.
What is the Dermapen?
The Dermapen is a handheld device that contains multiple tiny sterile needles that gently prick your skin to stimulate collagen formation and improve blood flow to the skin. The Dermapen utilizes microneedling technology to encourage new skin cell growth for fuller, more youthful skin without the need for injections or surgery.
What happens during a Dermapen facial?
Before your Dermapen facial, Dr. Averilla discusses your skin concerns and goals in order to personalize your treatment. She then prepares your skin for the facial by thoroughly cleaning your skin and applying a numbing cream to ease discomfort, if needed.
Once you’re ready, Dr. Averilla presses the handheld Dermapen wand against your skin and you’ll feel a mild tingling or prickly sensation. She gently moves the wand across your skin to treat your entire face and neck area, as needed.
Afterwards, she applies moisturizers and sun protection, if appropriate. The entire session lasts approximately 70 minutes, including your consultation. You may notice mild discomfort and redness after the procedure since your skin was pricked by the Dermapen.
This discomfort will go away after a few days, though you need to be careful to avoid sun exposure for the next 10 days. Dr. Averilla provides extensive after-care instructions to ensure you are comfortable and avoid skin care products that could irritate your skin as it heals.
What results can I expect after a Dermapen facial?
In most cases, Dr. Averilla recommends a series of Dermapen facials to achieve your desired results. For severe sun damage, deep wrinkles, or scars, you may need up to six treatments.
Once your series of treatments is complete, you’ll notice fuller, smoother skin and fewer signs of hyperpigmentation and aging. The Dermapen facial can be an integral component in your skincare arsenal and may help you avoid more invasive procedures in the future.
