Is it possible to get a facelift without surgery? You bet. You can actually get similar results by using non-invasive measures, which will result in fewer side effects in comparison to surgical methods. Below are some of the treatments we offer that can help our clients attain the desired results they are looking for.
What is Micro-Needling?
Micro-needling is the use of an electric skin needling device about the size of a pen using tiny needles to create very fine micro tunnels in the skin, penetrating the upper layers of the skin to a depth of up to 0.1mm to 2.5 mm. These tunnels help to quicken the absorption process of topical skin care products to speed up skin rejuvenation. Micro-needling also stimulates the collagen and elastin production, improving the appearance of skin.
What Results Does it Yield?
By choosing micro-needling, clients can expect an improvement in their skin’s overall complexion and give a youthful appearance. Micro-needling will reduce fine lines, wrinkles, loose skin, skin textural irregularities and large pore size. Micro-needling is also effective for other skin conditions such as acne, scarring and stretch marks.
Important Information To Know
At our medical spa, we strive for safety and excellence, which is why we use the Dermapen for our in-facility treatments. We feel that this particular device is one of the safest of its kind, while still being very effective in its treatment.
Other professionals may decide to use Dermarollers (or you may choose to purchase one for at-home use); however, we strongly advise against using this device. The Dermapen and Dermarollers are not the same type of device. The needles on a dermaroller do not penetrate the skin vertically, like the Dermapen does, so the needles enter and exit the skin at an angle. The angle of the micro-needles can actually make tears in the skin and create larger micro-channels than desired, which can result in more skin issues. With the Dermapen, the micro-channels that are created are vertical, which is the desired result for effective skin rejuvenation.
We also advise clients to avoid trying to perform these treatments on themselves as they are not trained professional and could possibly cause more damage to their skin.
