If you are like many people, you may be hesitant to try a new procedure. Micro-needling has been around for more than 25 years and we have been offering it in our clinic for more than 5 years.
Microneedling is a procedure that uses small needles to prick the skin. The skin reacts by generating new collagen and skin tissue, creating smoother, firmer, more toned skin. Microneedling is mostly used on the face and neck but can be used on other parts of the body. It is minimally invasive, with no downtime. Some patients experience minor redness and irritation for a day or two. Microneedling done in a medical clinic is much more effective than the rollers designed for home use. Microneedling is most often used for fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, large pores, uneven skin tone, reduced elasticity, and acne scars. To see what a Microneedling treatment looks like, please watch this 3-minute video:
When you come in for a microneedling session, we first thoroughly cleanse the area to be treated. For your protection and hers, the aesthetician wears a mask, glasses, gloves and a face shield and works from behind a plexiglass shield. To see the “Spa Box” shield in action, go to:
Pure pharmaceutical hyaluronic acid is applied to each area and a pen-like tool with a disposable 36-pin tip is used to prick the skin. Each area is treated by moving the pen in several different directions over the same areas to assure complete coverage. Most patients describe the treatment as feeling “Like sandpaper being rubbed on my face.”
Microneedling, when compared to other procedures that have a similar effect on the skin is “dollar for dollar” one of the best treatments available. With the current special we are offering, there has never been a better time to give Microneedling a try. You have probably noticed, the cost of most everything is increasing drastically. We may have to do the same in the next few months, but for patients that have at least one treatment before the special expires, we will allow you to keep the special price for any and all future treatments.
