News, Articles

By: Dr. Corey Hartman, Skin Wellness Center

While the idea of microneedling, or taking little needles and applying pressure to the skin, is anything but new, the improved devices and technology have put it back on the forefront. For a while, the advent of laser technology took us in a whole new realm, but now microneedling pens are so much better that patients can get results that are just as good as the laser, without the added side effects and downtime.

By: Phyllis Rush, Skin Wellness patient

I remember waking up the morning of Friday May 18th thinking – “today, I am voluntarily going to a doctor to have needles stuck repeatedly in my face” – for the sake of beauty.

It all started when I won a contest to be one of 10 women to try out the latest product in dermatological circles called Xeomin.  Xeomin is being called the “healthier” Botox, because it only contains botulin – none of the other additives that are in Botox.
