Microneedling with Micropen now available in Palm Desert
At Beauty Refined, we are excited to bring you Microneedling with Micropen, one of the latest nonsurgical innovations available in skincare today. Also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT), microneedling rejuvenates the skin’s appearance by increasing the production of collagen and elastin. This non-invasive treatment is highly effective in reducing fine lines and wrinkles AND improving overall tone, texture, and color. What’s more, MicroPen microneedling creates a more porous skin surface so that topical gels, creams, and serums can be absorbed more effectively, therefore improving their effectiveness.
Combine Microneedling with PRP or Growth Factors
Carried out under the supervision of board-certified plastic surgeon Diya Tantawi, MD, MicroPen microneedling can also be combined with a liquid treatment comprised of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), or Growth Factors. Note, the PRP is generally the most optimally effective since it is made up of your own plasma. Similar to the “Vampire Facelift,” this is a highly effective combo because the skin can absorb more of these growth factors as a result of the microneedling treatment. The result? You’ll see an even greater improvement in skin texture and tone, and a larger reduction of wrinkles, enlarged pores, acne scars, and dark spots.
How Does Microneedling Work?
During the micro-needling procedure, which takes about 15-20 minutes, a thick layer of topical gel is applied to the skin. Then the Micropen treatment begins. You’ll feel a gentle pressing as the pen glides across the treatment area. (The Micropen has known advantages such as less drag than the Dermapen.)
The MicroPen works by creating tiny micro-injuries to the skin, which stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. Post-treatment, the skin begins its natural repair process: a new layer of outer skin forms, creating a softer appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
If you’re seeking a nonsurgical solution for loose or sagging skin on the face or neck area, Beauty Refined is also proud to offer FDA-approved FaceTite. This minimally invasive contouring procedure uses radiofrequency energy to melt fat and tighten skin. FaceTite can deliver dramatic improvement on skin laxity on the face and neck through small 2-3mm incisions. With this revolutionary technology, you can achieve results that were previously attainable only through surgery.

- Nasolabial folds (laugh lines)
In addition, FaceTite addresses wrinkles, sagging skin, fine lines, and overall skin laxity.
