"I went in for a consult and was sold on laser hair removal for my underarms. Dr. Tumbaga and her team are amazing. They made me feel right at home and at ease with all of the info."- M.G. / Yelp / Feb 22, 2022
"I am so happy tonight! I have been lethargic & basically, felt cruddy since Christmas. I tried to get into 2 of my doctor’s offices & couldn’t. A friend told me about IV treatments, so I started doing some research. This office is amazing! I came in weak & tired. I was met with a PA who sat with me as I did my paper work!! After an IV treatment & B12 shot, I feel like a new woman. The doctor actually came in & talked to me about my issues - and, she was the one who took my IV out & gave me advice! WOW! I’ve had 4 children & a doctor has never took my IV out! I felt so taken care of. I highly recommend this office!"- L.T. / Yelp / Feb 02, 2022
"Dr. Tumbaga was amazing as were all the assistants. They made the experience extremely comfortable. Dr. Tumbaga would stop at points to check in with me so I could see how things were going and confirm it was what I was looking for. Lip fillers came out exactly how I wanted. I will definitely be back."- J.G. / Google / Jan 25, 2022
"Dr Tumbaga is amazing. She corrected some fillers that another office had done. She made my lips look even. I appreciate the time and attention she gave me as a new patient. She has a great eye for symmetry. I’m going back for lasers next."- M.A. / Yelp / Dec 23, 2021
"I was desperate when I got here. Due to complications of medical botox for migraine, I had severe ptosis. One eye looked like I was terrified and the other looked like I was sleeping. I had visual impairment and the last thing I wanted to do was botox. From the first phone call, to intake to meeting Dr. Timbaland, I was amazed. The anxiety I was experiencing dropped several notices and within days, I feel human. Every single staff person I met there has been extraordinary. I love this olace!"- G.G. / Google / Nov 28, 2021
Who is a candidate for Microneedling?
An ideal candidate for microneedling wants to renew the appearance and texture of their skin. When uneven skin tone, wrinkles, and acne scars make you feel embarrassed about your skin, microneedling may help. Treatments can also combat the effects of sun damage that leave many people with a dull complexion. Patients who are currently pregnant or nursing are not candidates for microneedling at this time.
What to expect during microneedling
Before starting any procedure, Wellness Diagnostics & Medispa will cleanse your skin — so it's free of dirt, oil, and makeup. We then use a handheld device to gently roll tiny needles over the surface of your skin. This creates micro-injuries that stimulate collagen production and help enhance the appearance of aging skin. The purpose of microneedling is to generate new tissue for smoother, firmer, and more toned skin. Benefits include:
- Requires little downtime
- Considered safe for most skin types and tones
- Less invasive than cosmetic surgery
WHAT ARE PLATELET-RICH PLASMA INJECTIONS?
Microneedling can be combined with platelet-rich plasma to enhance the health and appearance of your skin. To begin, Dr. Tumbaga or a member of our team will take a small sample of blood, then use a special device to isolate the growth factors.
Platelet-rich plasma is often used to rejuvenate cells and slow down the aging process. Sports physicians and orthopedic surgeons use this therapy to heal injuries and treat osteoarthritis, but it also helps aesthetic medicine specialists treat the following conditions:
- Hair loss
- Uneven skin tone
- Saggy skin
Once the PRP is administered into the treatment areas after microneedling, patients can reap the skin rejuvenation results! You'll notice smoother, tighter skin with less scarring over time.
Microneedling with PRP FAQs
Can I combine other treatments with microneedling?
Microneedling creates channels that make it easier for treatments to refresh your skin. That's why microneedling is performed at the same time as other skin treatments like platelet-rich plasma. During your anti-aging consultation, Dr. Tumbaga will explain which procedures and add-ons would enhance your microneedling and benefit your skin.
How many treatments are recommended for optimal results?
Most patients need 3 – 6 microneedling sessions to see their best results. However, the number of sessions you require will depend on your cosmetic goals. Microneedling can be performed every 4 – 6 weeks or as recommended. Our team can provide a more accurate estimate in-office. We suggest getting maintenance sessions every six months once your skin goals are reached.
Is microneedling safe for everyone?
Microneedling is appropriate for most skin tones and types and can be applied to areas like the face, arms, neck, and chest. Since micro-injuries are so small, most patients won't experience many side effects. Microneedling is not recommended if you've been on Accutane in the last few months or if you have an open wound, active skin infection, or herpes simplex. Additionally, you may not be a candidate if you are nursing, pregnant, or undergoing radiation therapy.
