We have been doing Microneedling for about 5 years now and popularity in the treatment continues to grow. There are hundreds of articles about celebrities that are using it. So, why all the buzz, and what is microneedling?
It’s a facial treatment that uses a microneedling tool to make small, microscopic holes into your skin. In our clinic, we use a 36-pin disposable tip, instead of the 11 or 12-pin tip used in other clinics. We also
use pure pharmaceutical-grade hyaluronic acid during the treatment and have developed a technique that makes the procedure much more comfortable. Some patients fall asleep during the session.
We also use a SPA Box and thoroughly cleanse/disinfect in between treatments. We are not a high traffic spa and do treatments by appointment only. This allows us to schedule so that you will have the least possible exposure to the patient before or after you.
Patients that have been to other clinics often comment that our treatments are much more comfortable and seem more thorough. We also include a bottle of hyaluronic acid for you to take home and apply for 2 or 3 days after the procedure. Watch the following 3-minute video to see what a treatment looks like:
The Results: Your skin will feel tighter following the treatment. The micro-injuries created by the treatment cause your body to react and increase collagen production, creating new skin. The new skin gradually comes to the surface as the old skin is shed over the weeks following the procedure. Micro-needling reduces fine lines and wrinkles, provides more even skin tone, eliminating dark spots and uneven textures. We advise that you have treatments four or five weeks apart. The full results usually take about 8 weeks to appear. Microneedling works the same way lasers do, only you’re injuring the skin mechanically instead of using more invasive heat or chemical methods.
If you are looking to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, tighten loose skin, reduce stretch marks or brown spot appearance or drastically reduce mild to moderate acne scarring, give us a call today at 505-271-6608 to schedule an appointment or get your questions answered. www.ThermographyNM.com
