Smooth Wrinkles, Improve Skin Tone, Refine Skin Texture, And More!
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a form of collagen induction therapy intended to smooth wrinkles, improve skin tone and texture, and decrease scarring. The process works by delivering tiny micro channels to the skin using a set of sterile needles. The controlled micro-injuries help produce collagen and elastin.
The concept of microneedling is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself in response to physical damage. Immediately after an injury, the body naturally reorganizes and rebuilds, stimulating production of fibrin as well as improving the extracellular skin matrix.
“I am amazed at the results after just one treatment!I have had microneedling treatments at other spas and the results were not even close to the results I got after just one treatment at Lani’s. I have a lot of scarring around my mouth and lower face from hormonal acne and this treatment significantly reduced the appearance of those scars after just one treatment.
Madison did the treatment and she was fantastic. She went over my problem areas multiple times and I feel like I received a much better treatment than any I have had in the past from other spas. The fine lines and wrinkles I had started noticing were softened or eliminated. I can not wait to get my next treatment if the results are this good after one treatment.
What are the benefits of Microneedling?
Our aestheticians assess each clients unique needs and use a special device equipped with a set of sterilized needles to create superficial micro-channels which allow topical gels, creams, and serums to be absorbed more effectively in the skin to repair:
Most patients see results over the course of several days and weeks. Results continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production/remodeling continues.
After the treatment, your skin may appear red and slightly swollen. It may also feel tight and mildly sensitive. These symptoms will diminish within 24 hours and makeup may be applied the day after the treatment. Products will be able to penetrate the skin more efficiently and thus more effectively.
It is also imperative to use a sunscreen daily after this treatment, as skin will be more sensitive to the sun’s harmful rays after treatment.
Exfoliating products such as alpha hydroxy acids and beta hydroxy acids (AHA’s and BHA’s), Retinoids, and scrubs should be avoided 5 days before and after treatment to avoid excessive skin exfoliation and irritation.
Maximum results are typically seen in 6-8 weeks. A series of treatments is usually recommended for those targeting a specific skin concern every 4-6 weeks apart.
Before treatment begins, expect to allow 30 minutes to apply numbing cream to the treatment area. The microneedling procedure will last approximately 30-45 minutes depending on what areas are being treated and to allow for our aestheticians to apply medical grade skin care products, so the overall appointment time is around 1 hour.
The feeling associated with our microneedling pen is similar to light sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the microneedling pen’s reciprocating needle tip reduces some discomfort when applied with a hydrating gel, which also makes these treatments more comfortable.
