Would you like to do something truly effective to treat the unsightly appearance of pigmentation, wrinkles, or facial scars? At Brilliance Dermatology, our Skinpen microneedling procedure has helped many of our patients achieve smoother, fresher, younger-looking skin – without surgery.
When microneedling is performed under the careful guidance of Dr. Hal Weitzbuch, you can expect the result to be exceptional and arguably the safest results in microneedling Calabasas has to offer.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling, or skin needling, is a procedure performed by a dermatologist that uses multiple, tiny needles, less than 0.25mm each in diameter, to create tiny skin injuries. These dermal skin injuries cause new collagen to form through triggering the natural regenerative process.
Collagen is what helps give strength and flexibility to the skin. It is a fibrous protein produced by the body but as time passes, less and less collagen is produced naturally, and the skin begins to wrinkle and sag. Microneedling stimulates the skin to begin producing collagen once again, leading to firmer, tighter, more supple, youthful facial skin.
What Are The Benefits of Microneedling?
Microneedling is so popular because of the many benefits it provides:
- Firmer, tighter skin
- Minimized signs of age, such as wrinkles and fine lines
- Enhanced, smoother skin tone and texture
- Improved or reduced acne scars and blemishes
- Smaller pores
- Reduced stretch marks
- Minimal recovery time
- A relatively painless procedure
- Short treatment time
- Non-surgical, minimally-invasive treatment
- Rejuvenated, more youthful-looking skin
Who is a good candidate for microneedling?
Microneedling in Westlake Village may be the ideal treatment for you if you are seeking a safe alternative to more invasive skin treatments that doesn’t require a lengthy recovery period. If hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, or a dull skin texture are causing self-consciousness, microneedling can help. The treatment boosts the production of collagen and elastin, giving your skin a smoother, more youthful and radiant glow.
While the risk of complications is very low with microneedling, it may not be a safe treatment for women who are pregnant or nursing. The potential side effects of skin infection or cold sores may be disadvantageous to the baby.
Why Brilliance Dermatology for Microneedling?
Any facial treatment must be performed with the most advanced treatment systems, under the care and guidance of a board-certified dermatologist. Dr. Hal Weitzbuch is a premier medical provider with a hand-selected staff of highly-trained skincare providers. We have often been called upon to correct unsightly problems for patients who have undergone a skincare treatment at a medspa.
Never risk your face or skin to anyone but a dermatology office of highest repute, such as Calabasas Dermatolgy Center. Issues can arise that lead to unsightly outcomes if the microneedling procedure is performed incorrectly – our outstanding skills and knowledge of skin structure makes us a “go-to” for microneedling in Calabasas and its surrounding areas.
Microneedling and Scars: Treatment that Works.
Microneedling can also perforate and soften scar tissue and stimulate collagen growth. The new collagen can help fill in concave scars and wrinkles from the bottom up for a smoother, more attractive skin appearance.
This process can take two to three months to produce visible results, but some patients have experienced noticeable results after only a few days. Everyone reacts differently to this process, so results and the time it takes varies with each patient.
Microneedling on Face, Neck, Chest, and Body for Firmer, Tighter Skin
Skinpen Microneedling can be used all over the body, but the face, neck and chest are the most commonly treated areas. Many of our patients come to Brilliance Dermatology to improve the quality of facial skin.
Our range of treatments and procedures, all performed under the care and guidance of a board-certified dermatologist, produces truly remarkable improvements, and we invite you to find out how we can help you safely and effectively achieve smoother, younger-looking skin.
How Microneedling Works: What to Expect
An anesthetic cream is used to make the treatment comfortable to experience. A layer of purified water may be applied to lubricate the skin so the treatment wand glides smoothly over the skin surface. After treatment, your skin may appear slightly reddened, similar to a sunburn. Serums, which can more deeply penetrate the skin, may be used in treatment.
Multiple treatments are often required for more severe skin flaws. The number of microneedling sessions depends entirely upon the current condition of the patient's skin. Deeper scars or stretch marks may need five or more treatments. However, someone with mild to moderate acne scarring may only require three or four treatments. For the best results in microneedling Calabasas has to offer, we schedule each treatment four to six weeks apart, giving the skin time to heal between treatments.
Advanced Aesthetic Treatments at Brilliance Dermatology
Our boutique practice was built around the patient experience, and we focus upon producing the greatest improvement possible. We go above and beyond in our patient care, and Dr. Hal Weitzbuch, our award-winning, board-certified dermatologist may recommend this procedure singly, or in combination with other cosmetic treatments based upon skin condition.
Custom Treatment Plans for Aging Skin
Every patient can expect a customized treatment plan to achieve what they envision. Laser skin resurfacing has a similar purpose to microneedling, but is more invasive. People of all skin types can undergo microneeding as a great alternative to laser skin treatment. We achieve even greater benefits for our patients by performing microneedling with platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy.

How Quickly Will I See Results?
The results from your Westlake Village microneedling treatment take some time to appear because your body is regenerating the skin organically.This process may take about a month, but you will begin to see the positive effects gradually appear during this time.
Most patients do notice an improvement within the first week, as the skin tone and texture is improved. As your body continues to rebuild the structure of your skin and produce new, healthy, fresh skin, the more dramatic results will start to show within 4-6 weeks after your treatment.
