Take Charge of Your Complexion
If you’re like many, your skin may not be what it used to be. An inevitable problem with age. It may not hold those same lines it used to, or appear as clear and healthy as it once was. Traditional methods to treat deflating skin have involved the use of dermal injections, which can be limiting in its applications. This leads to many looking for alternatives to rejuvenate their skin. The natural solution is Microneedling.
WHAT IS IPL Microneedling?
Medical Microneedling of the skin, also referred to as collagen induction therapy, is a relatively new concept aimed at stimulating the body’s collagen and elastin production. Scars, stretch marks and wrinkles can be visibly reduced with no injections, incisions, or downtime required.
HOW IT WORKS
The technique involves using multiple tiny, sterile needles to puncture the skin which helps fuel the body’s natural healing process and produces a thickening of the skin by up to 80%. The process activates the body’s natural ability to heal and revive skin cells.
One of the most commonly discussed benefits is that Microneedling is chemical-free. It produces countless micro-channels for the delivery of healthy nutrients into the problem areas. Microneedling also allows your body to release natural healing agents to rejuvenate the skin.
Microneedling helps tighten, lift, and rejuvenate the skin. By controlling the levels of dermal penetrations through the protective top layers, it reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, minimizes pores, stretch marks, and scarring such as surgical and acne scars.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TRADITIONAL MICRONEEDLING AND RF MICRONEEDLING?
In conventional microneedling, a handheld device with tiny needles is rolled over the skin to create micro-injuries. This process stimulates the body’s natural wound-healing response. New growth factors produce new collagen and tissue in the skin, resulting in tauter skin with improved texture and appearance.
RF microneedling utilizes this same process while also including application of radiofrequency energy, making it superior to the traditional method. The microneedles deliver RF energy to the deeper dermis. The heat produced in this lower layer of skin boosts the process of collagen rejuvenation.
Why choose Microneedling over traditional injections?
Microneedling is a natural alternative to traditional injections such as Botox. Microneedling uses small, surgical-grade needles to physically treat the surface of the skin. This aids the production of new, healthy cells. Botox is injected under the skin and into muscle, partially restricting movement. This limits the areas on your body Botox can be used effectively, whereas Microneedling is safe for all areas of the body. Microneedling is a more natural, versatile treatment that is chemical-free.
What to Expect Post-Treatment
After receiving a Microneedling treatment, your skin may appear to have a mild sunburn or feel slightly tight subsiding somewhere between 3-7 days. The procedure is non-invasive and you may resume your normal daily activities immediately. Expect desired results in 3-6 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
