This Dermaplaning-Meets-Microneedling Treatment Is the Newest Way to Get Skin That Gleams and Glows

Behold the power of skin-resurfacing treatments. From lasers that lift pigmentation and soften skin texture to microdermabrasion and chemical peels, which exfoliate away the top layers of skin, there’s nothing quite like a resurfacing treatment.

The newest one on the scene is MIRApeel and it fuses two unique technologies—wet abrasion and wet microneedling—into a single treatment. Here’s how it works:

Step 1
For about 10 minutes, the top, outermost layers of skin are gently and safely abraded layer by layer with a specially designed razor-like head that can be dialed up or dialed down depending on how aggressive the treatment needs to be. At the same time, skin is infused with the brand’s proprietary serums. By removing dead surface skin, skin is prepped to better receive what’s to come in step two.

Step 2
Tiny, 0.25 millimeter needles are rolled across the skin with a flow of serums. The company calls it “wet micro-protrusion,” which is essentially microneedling with the addition of a wet component (here, it’s the use of serums). According to Serge Castro, CEO of MIRAMed, the company that makes MIRApeel, the tiny needles are effective because the tip gently glides over skin while firmly "adhering" to it thanks to vacuum power.

Step 3
Two LED lights are used on the skin to allow it to calm down, followed by a soothing bio-cellulose face and décolleté mask.

Although six to eight weekly sessions followed by quarterly maintenance are recommended to see maximum results, the wet microneedles is the major point of distinction here. “There’s an immediate 'MIRAwow' effect—that’s what we call it. There’s also no blood and no pain with the procedure,” says Castro. “Skin will be glowy and refreshed and boasts a beautiful new appearance directly after the treatment." Ideal for correcting pretty much anything from dry skin and age spots to acne scars and textural issues, and even premature aging, MIRApeel, which was developed in Germany and has a huge following in Europe with dermatologists, is quickly making its mark. Think of this as the next generation of microneedling.

    We want to know how much it costs and if it helps with acne scaring . How long is the treatment for an entire face & neck? Do we have to stay out of the sun afterwards ? I imagine heavy sunblock ....

    I’m a cosmetician, and interested in the product, but I have some questions: who is allowed to perform it? what products are they using? how much the machine costs? , how to call the company who's making it. Thanks.

    I’ve had Fractora many times before around the eyes and it was a game changer as far as reducing my saggy skin and NOT NEEDING an eye lift. This sounds SOOOO MUCH better and more effective since it injects serums INTO the skin. Fractora only did micro needling. Are there any clinics inDallas that offer MIRAPeel?

    After having several expensive Hydrafacial procedures and being less than thrilled with the results, the Mira-Peel system seemed to yield better results. If you're familiar with Hydrafacials, the best way I can describe the Mira-Peel is a Hydrafacial treatment on steroids. I'd definitely do the Mira-Peel again.

    How soon can you see results? What results are expected after the procedure? How many sessions are recommended and if multiple sessions are suggested, how often should one schedule the treatment?

    I have had this treatment. My skin looked great after. I also had the pleasure of performing the MIRApeel at the 2018 American Academy of Dermatology Congress in San Diego. The attendees lined up for the treatment and were very pleased with the results. The first was reaction was WOW!. We heard it so many times we started to call the treatment MIRAWOW. Not only dose the MIRApeel give the skin added benefits there is no downtime.
