Microneedling uses fine needles to create hundreds of tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of the skin. This minimally-invasive treatment is virtually painless and incredibly effective. Microneedling works the same way that lasers do, injuring the skin to create new collagen production. However, instead of using heat or light, the injuries to the skin are created mechanically. The resulting micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural wound healing processes, providing cell turnover and increased collagen and elastin production. This not only reverses the signs of aging but prevents them as well! We especially like microneedling because of its ability to utilize the body’s own natural healing mechanisms, making the results very natural.
We offer combination treatments using microneedling with platelet rich plasma (PRP). The growth factors isolated from your own blood serum in PRP can be applied to the skin in conjunction with microneedling to maximize new collagen production and the treatment results obtained from microneedling.
Our medical aesthetician is trained to perform dermaplaning. This treatment is a method of gentle exfoliation that uses a 10-gauge scalpel to lightly remove the top layer of dull, dead skin cells, revealing a smoother, brighter complexion. This treatment also improves makeup application by smoothing the face through the removal of vellus hair (also known as “peach fuzz”). Dermaplaning works especially well when performed in conjunction with another treatment (such as microneedling or the HydraFacial) by increasing product penetration. The result is a more beautiful, fresh and glowing look.
