If over-the-counter skin products aren't proving effective, but you aren't ready for surgical procedures, learn more about minimally invasive treatments for skin rejuvenation, such as microneedling. Dr. Rachel Day is pleased to offer microneedling (collagen induction therapy) using EXCEED, the only double-FDA approved microneedling device for both wrinkle and acne scar reduction at our office in Chambersburg, PA. Microneedling uses many fine-gauge needles to safely and effectively make micro-injuries in the skin. The micro-injuries prompt the natural production of elastin and collagen, two nutrients that enhance the health and appearance of your complexion. Easily combined with other treatments, like vitamin serums or PRP (platelet-rich plasma), microneedling may help minimize acne scars, pores, fine lines and wrinkles. Schedule an appointment for a consultation at OneSkin Dermatology to discover more about the results of microneedling and ways to personalize your procedure for your needs and goals.
"Dr. Day is AMAZING!!! I had a baby in November and my skin took a huge toll. Acne flared up and I didn’t know what to do anymore. So I broke down and made an appointment with OneSkin Dermotology. When I first met Dr. Day I was excited, when you see a young doctor you think of new medicine and new treatments. So I was really looking forward to see what my treatment plan would be. Not to mention, the office is BEAUTIFUL and relaxing! She made a wonderful plan for my skin and recommended drug store products that work just as good as the expensive ones! So far we are about a month and a half in and my skin is night and day difference and I am so pleased! We still have some work to do, but it looks amazing! Thank you to Dr. Day and her wonderful and kind team! 100% recommend! Worth the money, but honestly the price is totally affordable!"- C.S. / Google / Mar 06, 2020

"Dr Day really takes the time to listen! Her advice has been excellent and she does NOT have a dismissive attitude, as I have found with several other dermatologists, and corporate healthcare in general. Her staff is friendly, informative and discrete. I love the office as it offers a relaxed spa-like space."- M.L. / Google / Feb 19, 2020
"I have had multiple procedures done by Dr. Day and have been thrilled with the results every time. Not only have I gotten the results I wanted afterwards, but she and her entire staff are welcoming, very knowledgable, informative, and comforting. She keeps it real, which I really appreciate. No false claims or advertising about what to expect. Awesome!"- A.B. / Google / Feb 13, 2020

You may benefit from microneedling treatments if you experience slight to mild complexion issues, like a decrease in firmness or uneven texture. Collagen induction therapy treatments may also reduce the look of acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles. Benefits from your microneedling procedures are gradual and cumulative as the elastin and collagen require some time remodel and improve tone, texture and clarity of the skin. A wonderful procedure for active maintenance and an ageless, refreshed look, you will develop results that are natural and provide overall better skin health.
Microneedling is completed in a comfortable treatment room in about 30-45 minutes including topical anesthesia with numbing cream. We ensure maximal comfort during and after your procedure. Minimal if any discomfort during the procedure should be expected. The areas of skin being addressed will be cleaned before the EXCEED microneedling device handpiece is passed evenly over all treated skin surface areas. Once the microneedling is complete, a treatment, such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or a vitamin-infused serum, can be applied for deeper penetration of the nutrients into the skin. Combining your microneedling treatment with PRP is an excellent way to get your own natural growth factors and nutrients to enhance your appearance.
Finally, a moisturizer selected for your skin type will be massaged in along with UV protection because your skin will be sensitive after the treatment.
What to Expect
Following the procedure, you might experience light swelling and redness for 1-3 days, but this will improve daily. It may take about 1 – 2 months as the collagen and elastin supply increases before you notice significant changes in the health and appearance of your treated skin. For best results, microneedling treatments should be done in a series of 3-4 performed every 4 – 6 weeks. Add PRP to get that extra natural boost of autologus growth factors for more radiant, long-lasting skin health.
