Microneedling Treatment 101 at Center for Facial Rejuvenation

Microneedling Treatment 101:

Microneedling is exactly what it sounds like: a hand-held device inserts very fine, short needles that puncture the skin. This stimulates collagen and skin tissue production for smoother, firmer, and more toned skin. These punctures are only surface-level deep but the results are amazing and often show improved complexion and glow in a couple of weeks.

The microneedling treatment is minimally invasive, virtually painless and doesn’t require any downtime.

First, your licensed aesthetician will discuss your skin goals with you and will develop their plan of action to help you achieve the look you want. Then, a topical numbing cream will be applied to the area, making the procedure virtually painless. Then, they’ll start the treatment! All together, the process takes about an hour.

After treatment, clients can experience minor redness, irritation and dryness for a few days. Consider purchasing a physical based sunscreen for post care, which our center offers.

During the treatment, clients may choose to have Growth Factor serum applied. “Growth Factors are one of the best active ingredients for total skin rejuvenation” says Christie Dean. “Growth factors essentially communicate with your cells, prompting them to generate more collagen and elastin, which keep skin smooth and firm for a healthy, youthful glow.”

  

Microneedling Benefits:

After the treatment, many of our clients experience a more youthful, radiant glow as well as a supple plumpness.

When in a microneedling series, clients typically achieve a reduction in their fine lines, crow’s feet and wrinkles. Those who have acne scars and sun damage or discoloration will see visible improvement and a more even complexion. Pore size is also reduced as the collagen causes them to plump and appear shrunken.

According to a study conducted in 2008, participants whose skin was treated with four microneedling sessions spaced one month apart produced up to a 400% increase in collagen and elastin six months after completing their treatment.

 

Candidacy:

“Typically I recommend microneedling to my clients who are in good health and are looking to restore their youthful skin complexion. Also clients who are looking to improve slight scarring (often due to acne or aging), minimize pore size, or those looking to minimize fine lines” says Christie Dean. “While I do not recommend this procedure for those clients who have had radiation therapy or are pregnant/nursing, I encourage those interested to come in for a free consultation to see if microneedling is right for them.”

If you are struggling with acne scaring, sun damage, uneven complexion, fine lines, wrinkles, and skin that isn’t as tight as it used to be (to name a few), come in for a complimentary consultation and let’s put a treatment plan together for you!

Younger Looking and Smoother Skin with BroadBand Light (BBL)

What is BBL and why do people choose it?

BBL, BroadBand Light, is an innovative technology that uniquely delivers light therapy targeting the signs of aging and sun damage and effectively provides a more refreshed, rejuvenated and youthful appearance.

BBL treats a wide variety of conditions. For skin rejuvenation,  BBL removes age spots, freckles, redness, small vessels and more. BBL can also be used to reduce unwanted hair and control active acne. The best part? There is little to no downtime and the long-term benefits are amazing.

Why do people choose BBL?
The answer is two-fold. First, there are several reasons why a client chooses BBL treatments. The most common reasons a client is looking for a solution is due to:

  • Excessive sun exposure (active lifestyle)
  • Uneven skin tone and textures
  • Pigmentation (freckles, age spots)
  • Broken Capillaries
  • Rosacea
  • Bruising
  • Acne Issues
  • Hair Reduction

The second is all about the stunning results!

There have been several extensive studies and research into BBL treatments and the results. It not only promotes youthful looking skin by preventing cellular aging, but it also causes DNA expression of skin cells to reverse back to a healthy state.

How Many Treatments is in a Typical Treatment Plan?

The answer really depends on the client’s skin condition and goals. Typically, though, 4 treatments are needed. Once the goal is achieved, clients are known to come back 2 – 4 times a year for maintenance treatments.

Is BBL Right for Me?

It may be! If you have any of the above conditions or frustrations, we recommend you come in for a free consultation. We can evaluate your skin and then develop a treatment plan to achieve your goals. Call us today to start looking and feeling your best!
