Do you daydream about smooth, firm, glowing skin? Indulgence Wellness & Med Spa will help you achieve the skin of your dreams with our microneedling treatments. Microneedling is one of the most effective and minimally invasive treatments for reducing wrinkles, fine lines, stretch marks, hyper pigmentation and scars caused from surgery or acne.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a technique that uses tiny sterile micro-needles to create very small, controlled “injuries” to skin. These microscopic injuries then heal, resulting in an improvement in the appearance and texture of the skin. This prompts your body to produce more collagen and elastin which revitalizes your skin from within. Collagen in particular fills in fine lines and scars, tightens loose skin, and shrinks enlarged pores. Microneedling kick-starts your body’s natural biological process of repairing and rejuvenating your skin.
What Can I Expect At A Microneedling Treatment?
Each treatment takes about 45-90 minutes (depending on the size of the area you are treating) and most parts of the body can be treated. At Indulgence Spa we use a small pen-like device made by SkinStylus® that features a sterile, disposable tip with 13 tiny needles. Prior to your treatment the skin is cleansed and your aesthetician will apply numbing cream to lessen the discomfort if you desire. Microneedling moves the device at a 90 degree angle over the treated area, piercing the skin’s outer layer. After the treatment, your aesthetician will apply a soothing EstheCeuticals® topical cream to hydrate, heal and protect the skin.
When Can You Start Seeing Results From Microneedling Treatments?
You can expect to see results in as little as a few days, or after 3-5 treatments depending on the skin condition you treat. More aggressive treatments (such as scar removal) will naturally require more sessions. It is recommended that you schedule your treatments about 4-6 weeks apart. Most clients choose to come in once a month for microneedling treatments.
What to expect and post-treatment instructions for after a SkinStylus® treatment:
Immediately following your microneedling session, the treated area may be slightly swollen and feel warm and tight. It will look as though you have a moderate to severe sunburn. There may be minimal pin-point bleeding and/or bruising in the treatment area.
Most people will recover within the same day or within 48 hours. Avoid the sun, exercise and makeup until the following day. A physical (zinc-oxide or titanium oxide) sunblock should be used.
Avoid makeup, retinoids, glycolic acids, and vitamin C products on the first night.
Suggestions For Skin Care Prior To Your Microneedling Treatment:
Do not use topical prescriptions 3-4 days before and after treatment.
Avoid prolonged sun exposure for one week prior to treatment.
