MICRONEEDLING WITH HYALAURONIC ACID

This is a minimal to no downtime, collagen induction treatment that uses micro needles with a handheld automatic device to create micro injuries to the skin and penetrate into the dermis layer triggering a collagen and elastin production via the body’s natural wound-healing process. Microneedling also helps with active acne, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, pore size, uneven skin tone, stretch marks, acne scars, surgical scars, and poor skin elasticity.

The micro needles allow for maximum product penetration of your choice of your body’s own platelet rich plasma, hyalauronic acid, growth factors, or Vitamin C!

Our collagen response is just like our muscle response - we don't repeat the same exercise over and over again without switching it up because our muscles eventually stop responding as well, and our collagen behaves the same way. The ultimate goal with every anti-aging treatment we offer is to shock your collagen.

 

 

People who are not candidates for this procedure include the following:

  • use Accutane for acne

  • have certain skin conditions, such as facial eczema or rosacea

  • scar easily

  • have a history of poor wound healing

  • have undergone skin radiation in the last 12 months

  • Remember to avoid direct sun exposure or tanning the week before your appointment

  • Most patients see noticeable results after 4-8 weeks from their first treatment. You will continue to see improvements in your skin as your body’s natural repair process creates more collagen.

  • 3 treatments, 2-4 weeks apart is recommended for optimal results, followed by maintenance treatments every 3 months

  • Must wait 2 weeks after Botox or filler to have this procedure done

  • Those prone to cold sores may want to consider prophylactic treatment of Valacyclovir 3 days before and after treatment

  • Immediately after the treatment, your skin will feel very tight and a little tender like you have a sunburn or windburn.

  • By the following morning you can go back to your normal routine and use a gentle cleanser, SPF and even apply a little makeup if you wish.

  • No retinol or glycolic acid for 5 days after treatment

  • You’ll want to avoid alcohol-based products and exfoliants during the recovery stage.

  • Avoid the sun for at least 3 days after treatment. Sun exposure may also slow down your results.

  • Until your skin has completely healed, avoid rigorous activities that might cause excessive sweating and heat production. Sweating may cause additional irritation and rigorous activities may increase the risk of swelling or bruising. This usually should be avoided for at least 72 hours after your treatment.
