One of my favorite aspects of my job is that I get to learn. Everyday, I learn about new procedures, new techniques and new products that give my client’s the best possible skin that they can have.
I have seen new technologies become game changers in how we treat people for a wide range of problems. In fact, we just recently introduced a new procedure that I have absolutely fallen in love with. Microneedling. Well, to start off, microneedling isn’t necessarily “new,” but the microneedling technology we have available to us today is what makes this procedure so extraordinary.
At Spa One, we use the ProCell microchanneling technology which is specifically designed to create small punctures within the epidermis to create a type of controlled skin injury. In return, these punctures will rapidly increase collagen production and elastin resulting in improved skin texture and tone as well as firmness. Clients also see a reduction in pore size, scars, stretch marks, and fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, the small channels that are opened up during the procedure allow for serum absorption to increase by nearly 300 percent allowing for skin to stay smoother and healthier for longer.
Microneedling is perfect for those clients looking for something stronger and more effective than just your traditional chemical peel or microdermabrasion. For example, one of my regular clients, Amy, who I see once a month for a chemical peel recently decided she wanted to try something a tad bit more aggressive to get better results for her daughter’s upcoming wedding. I recommended that we move forward with 4-6, hour-long microneedling treatments spaced about a month apart. In addition to the treatments, I also had Amy start using SkinMedica’s HA5 which provides immediate smoothing in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also supports the skin’s natural ability to replenish its own hyaluronic acid (HA) which helps keep skin healthy, resilient, and supple.
While Amy started seeing the results immediately, she really noticed the full impact after the 3rd treatment. Her skin was radiant and her fine lines and wrinkles were so diminished that she said wedding attendees thought she was the sister of the bride, not the mother of the bride! She was so impressed with the results she has added microneedling to her regular skin regime and schedules treatments two times a year which help to maintain her youthful, rejuvenated appearance.
