Tired of sluggish, tired-looking skin? If you’re noticing under-eye puffiness and dark circles, sun damage or signs of prematurely aging skin, then you may need something stronger than a new anti-wrinkle cream. Boost your skin’s self-healing potential with a Microneedling treatment. You can further enhance your Microneedling results by adding PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) or RF (radiofrequency) to your treatment. Microneedling stimulates your skin’s self-healingcapability, boosting collagen and elastin production. At Regenerative Aesthetics & Lasers NW, our Microneedling treatmentsplumps your skin to fill in fine lines and wrinkles, while healing past damage, giving your skin a lasting youthful glow!
Are You a Good Candidate for Microneedling?
A Microneedling treatment is ideal for any person who wants to improve their skin tone and quality. It’s also an excellent option for patients who may not be a good candidate for laser treatments. Microneedling – also called collagen induction therapy –is an effective treatment for treating scars on the face and body.
What Are the Main Benefits of Microneedling?
After the treatment, you’ll notice an immediate “glow” and your skin will continue to improve over several weeks. The full results can be seen up to 6 months post-treatment as collagen production continues.Patients also report the following benefits from this healing treatment:
We offer 3 Types of Microneedling Treatments:
Our Microneedling treatment uses microscopic needles which create “micro-injuries” in the skin, stimulating the body’s own healing response which increases collagen and elastin production. This tightens the skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
We combine Microneedling with radiofrequency energy for enhanced anti-aging benefits.Adding radiofrequency (RF) to the treatment delivers stimulating electrical energy into the skin, heating the targeted area. This heats collagen, which in turn promotes new collagen production, tightening the area. This is an excellent option if you want to improve skin wrinkles, skin tightening and laxity or reduce scars.
Adding PRP to your Microneedling treatment will further enhance overall results. The infusion of platelet rich plasma (PRP) into the microscopic holes created by the Microneedling treatment allows for deeper penetration of nutrients and growth factors within PRP. Adding PRP will enhance wrinkle reduction, lessen the appearance of stretch marks or acne scars. You can add both PRP and RF to this third Microneedling treatment option.
What Can You Expect During a Treatment?
Don’t let the term “Microneedling” scare you. It’s a quick treatment – usually 30 minutes to 1 hour. Patients report that it feels like a light sandpaper being moved across the skin, but we are happy to apply a topical numbing cream to make the treatment as comfortable and pain-free as possible. The combination of microneedles and heat is what makes this such effective facial treatment tool. Microneedles are pushed into the skin to a certain depth, and then RF energy is released. The warming needles go directly into the skin tissue to stimulate collagen so that new collagen fibers are produced. Because the epidermis and its top layers are protected during treatments. Our Fraxis DUO® is suitable for use on all skin types.
Which Areas Can You Treat?
Microneedling can treat and improve your skin’s condition over several areas of the body including:
