We wrote about how some of our clients believe “micro-needling is essential”, in the May/June online issue of Truly Alive. That article was a tribute to our clients who believe that micro-needling has changed not only the way they look, but also the way they feel. As someone who rarely makes time to do treatments of any kind – I can tell you that when I have a micro-needling treatment, it is always a positive experience.
You hear the word “needling” and it sounds very painful, but it is not. I am one of those people who avoids pain and discomfort at all costs. Allison Scanlon, our esthetician, has been doing micro-needling for over three years and developed a micro-needling treatment that is comfortable…even I can relax when she works on me. It feels like someone is scratching my skin and my skin looks sunburned for a few hours. The improvement in my skin is noticeable. I don’t look like I am in my 7th decade. Even my “turkey neck” and “crepe like skin” has improved and it is not the first thing you notice when you see me.
During the shutdown, our office manager designed a protective shield for micro-needling. When patients started calling to schedule micro-needling treatments, he decided to build a shield that would protect not only the client but also the esthetician.
Watch a 30-second video of the “Spa Box” in action – Allison wears a mask, glasses, gloves and a face shield, and works from behind the plexiglass shield:
Our office is a medical clinic and we have sinks in every office to wash hands easily. We clean every doorknob and handle and bathroom fixture after every client. At the end of the day we use an ozone generator to sterilize the air and every surface. We are a low traffic clinic. There are never more than two or three people in the clinic at the same time.
To schedule your micro-needling appointment please call (505) 271-6608.
