Microneedling: A Non-Invasive Treatment for Younger-Looking Skin

Microneedling is a minimally invasive new cosmetic procedure that reverses wrinkles using tiny needles to create micro-channels in the skin. These channels allow for the delivery of serums and other treatments to the deeper layers of the skin, where they can work more effectively in reducing wrinkles.

Microneedling is a popular treatment for a variety of skin concerns, including:

  • Wrinkles and Fine Lines
  • Acne scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Sun damage
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Melasma

Microneedling is also a good option for people who want to improve the overall appearance of their skin. It can help to reduce the appearance of pores, improve skin texture, and give the skin a more youthful glow.

The microneedling procedure is right here in our office. The patient will be numbed with a topical anesthetic, and then the needles will be used to create the micro-channels in the skin. The procedure usually takes about 30-45 minutes to complete.

After the procedure, the patient’s skin may be red and swollen. This is normal and should subside within a few days. The patient may also experience some bruising.

Most people see results from microneedling within 4 weeks of the procedure.

Microneedling is a safe and effective treatment for a variety of skin concerns. It is a good option for people who are looking for a non-invasive way to improve the appearance of their skin.

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Hyperpigmentation

The Best Way to Find the Best Acupuncture Clinic for You

Whether you’re suffering from low back pain, or neuropathy, infertility or headaches, you’ll want to find the best acupuncture clinic that suits your needs the best.

The very best way is to call and speak with the receptionist of your clinic of interest and ask them if they have experience in or specialize in your primary condition you are seeking care for. While most acupuncturists have trained extensively for 3-5 years in graduate level study acupuncture programs, and receive a Master’s degree or a Doctorate (also known as a Acupuncture Physician), it’s still best to work with an acupuncturist or clinic that has experienced success in treating your condition.


Some questions you can ask when you phone a prospective acupuncture clinic:

Has the acupuncturist treated my type of condition before?

What is the success rate of treating my condition at this clinic?

How many years of experience does the acupuncturist have?

Do you offer any additional therapies beyond acupuncture to help address my condition?

What can I expect during my first visit? (Is it just a consultation, or will I receive treatment that day?)


Most of our patients are referred by word of mouth, from former patients who have also experienced success. Our acupuncturist Dr. Laura Parks does specialize in chronic, complex conditions and has been practicing for over 13 years. She received her acupuncture doctorate from Five Branches University, and acupuncture masters from Maryland University of Integrative Health (formerly Tai Sophia). Dr. Parks has been treating Fertility patients for over 13 years and specializing in neuropathy for over 4 years, with over a 85% success rate.

How Dietary Needs Change with Aging

from Presenter: Katherine Tucker, referenced at

“Dietary needs change with aging in several ways:

  • People become less active, their metabolism slows, their energy requirement decreases, all of which mean that they need to eat less.
  • Recent research demonstrates that because older adults’ abilities to absorb and utilize many nutrients become less efficient, their nutrient requirements (particularly as a function of body mass) actually increase. Tucker mentioned that the last set of nutrition recommendations issued by the Institute of Medicine () include separate recommendations for people age 70 and above for this reason ().
  • Tucker noted that as some of the previous speakers had discussed, chronic conditions and medications can affect nutrition requirements. For example, in addition to drug-nutrient interactions affecting drug metabolism, some drug-nutrient interactions are also nutrient wasting. This is especially true of the B vitamins.”
