Microneedling is a procedure that has taken over the beauty industry. It’s loved for the amazing results and little to no downtime. Microneedling relies mainly on the body’s capacity to repair itself and uses a handheld tool with lots of tiny needles that puncture the first layer of skin. This minimal-damage procedure triggers the natural healing process of your body. It creates new, plump skin by boosting collagen production. This new skin is smoother, softer, and more radiant.
During the Microneedling process, small needles prick the skin, creating micro-damage to the skin, leading to the body generating new skin cells.
The primary benefits of microneedling are:
- Evens out the skin
- Pore size is minimized
- Improves the skin’s texture
- Acne and other scars are minimized
There is no downtime after the procedure, and it is safe for all skin types. Most people see results immediately. The results from the initial process will last between 4-6 weeks. One should expect to have a follow-up treatment 4-6 weeks after the first treatment. Ongoing treatments will the plan you and your provider specialized for you and desired results.
A newer type of Microneedling is Morpheus 8 Radiofrequency Microneedling. It is microneedling, but with the added innovation of emitting radiofrequency energy into the skin layers, causing the skin to heat up and tighten. The introduction to heat in this process promotes collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production at a greater level than traditional microneedling.
This innovation in Morpheus8 creates dramatic results. For best results, clients can will need 3 treatments spaced 4-6 week apart. This treatment can be used on various parts of the body such as the face, arms, and neck!
Morpheus8 can help with the following skin issues:
- Improves the appearance of cellulite
- Dark spots on the skin are reduced
- Reduces the size of pores
- Improves the appearance of stretch marks and scars (acne or trauma)
- Reduces the signs of aging (fine lines and wrinkles)
Morpheus also has little to no downtime and can be used on all skin types. The results are noticeable immediately and can continue to improve over the next three months. The beauty of Morpheus8 is that it has permanent and lasting results that withstand the test of time. By adhering to the aftercare treatment plan and annual maintenance treatments, patients can sustain ongoing collagen production and reduce skin laxity.
