IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A MINIMALLY INVASIVE WAY TO REJUVENATE YOUR SKIN AND ENHANCE YOUR NATURAL BEAUTY, LOOK NO FURTHER THAN MICRONEEDLING.
WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that’s used to treat skin concerns by stimulating collagen production. Also known as collagen induction therapy, this treatment creates micro-punctures in the skin using miniature, sterilized needles.
WHO CAN BENEFIT?
SkinPen microneedling aims to restore and repair your skin bringing it back to optimal health. An array of skin conditions and concerns can be treated effectively. The SkinPen device is safe for all skin types and ethnicities. Addressing the following skin concerns:
Improves wrinkles on the face, neck, décolleté and hands
Minimizes pore size
Induces skin tightening
Hyperpigmentation, brown spots and melasma
Loose - saggy skin
UV damage, sun spots
Scalp (thining hair)
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
In general, we recommend a course of 3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. However, for those looking to treat acne scars we would likely recommend a longer course of up to 6 sessions to give you the best results.
WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT FEEL LIKE?
Prior to the treatment we apply numbing cream to the area being treated so discomfort if any is minimal. We use one of the treatment options listed below
(client choice). It will be an hour appointment, this includes consultation and time to answer any questions, time for numbing cream to work and then the treatment itself takes 30 minutes.
Afterwards, your skin will be red and will feel warm and tight for 1 or 2 days. It will also feel dry and flaky. This is all normal. You will be given specific post-procedure skincare products as part of your treatment which will help your healing journey post treatment.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS?
Patients notice an immediate "glow" to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several weeks. Results can continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production continues.
MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT OPTIONS:
Microneedling with PRP, Platelet Rich Plasma ($600)
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) aka “ liquid gold” can expedite the healing process of tissues and reduce the appearance of pigmentation and acne scarring when used with microneedling. PRP treatment involves using the patient’s own blood as a resource to isolate the platelets with a centrifuge. Because the blood is directly from the patient, the risks of the body rejecting the plasma or having an allergic reaction are minimal. The blood is separated into 3 layers which leaves the PRP available for use during the microneedling process. PRP contains proteins and several growth factors that regulate and activate cell migration and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.
Microneedling with Collagen Peptide Serum ($350)
Combine microneedling and a collagen peptide serum and you get some serious plumping power. This serum is a potent peptide concentrate to supercharge your collagen-induction therapy. And since peptides are class-A calmers, this serum will help soothe skin and speed redness reduction after all those tiny needles parade across your skin. Microneedling this serum improves product absorption by up to 300%, helping you get the most out of your serums ingredients and resulting in a brighter complexion.
Microneedling with Hydro Gel (price $300)
Skinfuse Lift HG Hydro gel comes with each individual SkinPen treatment packet. The gel is applied to help the SkinPen glide across the skin and to protect the skin from friction and abrasion. Although the gel doesn’t enhance your skin, you’re still receiving the benefits of microneedling your skin.
