Uneven skin texture, acne scarring, wrinkles, enlarged pores…these are all skin conditions that can seriously mess with your confidence! We all want perfectly smooth, soft, supple skin but unfortunately, life happens and our natural skin doesn’t always look perfect.
Luckily, there is a great treatment that can help rid your skin of all of the aforementioned concerns, leaving you with skin that is as smooth as winter snow! Let us introduce you to microneedling!
What is Microneedling?
There are several different types of microneedling and at Vital Rejuvenation, we use Skin Pen. Skin Pen microneedling is a treatment that involves creating controlled, microinjuries in the skin that stimulate the body’s natural healing process which also helps stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, helping to reduce and eliminate the appearance of things like scarring, uneven texture, and enlarged pores.
What is the Treatment Like?
During the Skin Pen treatment, the provider will run the device over your skin. The pen contains a brush of tiny needles that will puncture microholes into the skin, stimulating the healing process. Before your treatment, your provider will either give you a topical numbing cream to apply before you come in for your appointment or will apply it for you prior to starting the treatment. This will help you be completely comfortable throughout the procedure.
You also have the option to add PRP to your Skin Pen treatment! PRP is an incredible way to enhance your results. PRP stands for Platlet-Rich Plasma which we all have within our bloodstream. At the beginning of your appointment, your provider will draw blood from your arm, and during your Skin Pen treatment, the blood will be placed into a centrifuge machine that will spin and separate the blood from the PRP. Once it is separated, the PRP can then be applied back onto your skin after your treatment is done. PRP aids in the healing process and amplifies the results of your microneedling treatment.
Is Microneedling Right for Me?
Most people are great candidates for microneedling but the best way to find out is to come in for a consultation with a skin expert. If you struggle with acne or surgical scarring on the face, large pores, uneven texture, or lines and wrinkles, microneedling can give you the smooth, soft skin you’ve always wanted but maybe haven’t seen in a long time!
The number of treatments you’ll need will depend on the severity of your skin issues. Most people receive the best results after 2-3 treatments spaced out about four weeks apart. Your skin will improve more and more with each treatment! `
