Microneedling

Microneedling/Dermal Rolling Volumizing
Proven to be best approach for Facial Rejuvenation

Ways we age and the most cost effective way to reverse aging

Microneedling is a clinical technique performed by a trained clinician in a sterile environment with a prescription Topical Anesthetic.

Facial Volumizing via Medical Microneedling is the best option for patients no longer willing to undergo costly, dramatic procedures, which produce little, or drastic face altering results.

Because Microneedling involves penetrating deeper layers of the skin than patients can access at home (1.5 – 2.5 mm), we are able to stimulate areas at levels to produce significant changes.

Typical Facial Rejuvenation is approached in three ways:                                                                                                                      

  1. The Reductive Philosophy– where a plastic surgeon takes away by excising and cutting away skin and tissue. This may not be an acceptable approach, because with procedures such as lower facelifts, brow lifts, etc., once it’s cut away,  it’s gone, and if the result is unnatural and disfiguring, that result is forever. Studies show that people who have had a facelift tend to want to want another facelift within 8-10 years, Hence, the notion that a facelift is permanent is misleading.
  2. The Resurfacing Philosophy – where we incite cellular exfoliation of the epidermis, encouraging new cellular production and radiant skin. This is needful but does not by any means provide the level of volume or plumping needed, which is an indication of youthfulness.
  3. The Injection Philosophy – where doctors inject certain areas of the face such as the nasal labial folds, marionette lines, and wrinkles. This approach is great for forehead and lines around the eyes, as well as adding some fill in areas of reduction, but eventually fades and does nothing for overall facial fullness, rejuvenation or youthfulness.
  4. A great option performed under local anesthesia is fat transfer. The costs for this procedure are affordable and Microneedling is a great adjunct to fat transfer. However, if fat transfer is out of your budget, Microneedling is a significant option.

The Aging Process–The Grape to Raisin Philosophy:

In terms of the aging process, think of the face changing from the full youthful shape of a grape to a shrunken, wrinkled raisin. Traditional approaches to the aging face is adding to areas of the raisin or with plastic surgery, shrink wrapping the raisin into a smaller raisin.

Volumizing is returning the raisin back to the grape.

Volumizing is a sterile procedure performed by a trained clinician under prescription topical anesthesia….it is an incision-less facelift that increases soft tissue to the face,  promoting beauty by rejuvenating the face in a natural way. ..

Microneedling fills the hollows underneath the eyes, lines, folds and sagging skin around the jawline and face in a natural to way, returning those youthful highlights back in areas such as the brow, temple and cheek areas. We restore youth, naturally, without an operated look.

The philosophy of making the raisin into a smaller raisin just doesn’t fit what a person used to be—returning the fact to that plump grape does.

Microneedling- Medical Grade

Microneedling (percutaneous Collagen Induction) is proven, cost effective treatment approach for the face and skin that harnesses the body’s own natural healing capabilities to repair and restore facial volume, skin tightness, skin texture, improving and filling lines, wrinkles, and scarring.

What is the process?

Our Volumizing utilizes Medical depth Dermal Roller – an instrument with medical grade extremely fine micro-needles. The roller creates tiny micro-channels within the dermis layer of the skin. The resultant natural course of healing releases a cascade of powerful growth factors, encouraging the dense production of collagen and elastin; the subsequent result is skin plumping, volumizing and tightening.

Immediately following the treatment, prescription Vitamin A and Antioxidants are applied via the temporary channels for improved penetration up to 10,000 times normal application in a single treatment. Microneedling can be done on all areas of the face and body and is suitable for all skin types.

  • Improved skin texture
  • Softer lines and wrinkles
  • Increased skin tightness
  • Reduced appearance of scarring and pigment spots
  • Increase the effectiveness of active products
  • Restored youthful facial fullness and elasticity
  • All skin areas can be treated
  • The body produces its own volume and collagen
  • Completely natural, using the skin’s own powers of rejuvenation
  • You shouldn’t feel any pain as a topical anesthetic is used
  • Short healing time – most clients are able to go to work the next day
  • The effects can last for months as collagen is laid down following treatment

How does Microneedling work?

The skin reacts the same way as it reacts to any other inflammation; initial cascade of growth factors resulting in an abundance of volume tissues…collagen tissue which is stimulated over time. The new collagen bundles develop on top of the dermis and underneath the epidermis.

Over a course of treatments collagen fibers strengthen and elasticity is increased, resulting in a thicker tissue layer. Treatments also reduce the appearance of skin indentations when dermal rollers are applied to lines wrinkles and scars, including acne scars.

It is a fairly painless treatment with sun sensitivity or down real down time involved. On the day of the treatment, at least one hour before the treatment a prescription  topical anesthetic will be applied. An analysis and consultation determines Roller Depth and the procedure is performed under sterile procedure. Following the treatment, your skin will be red and puffy, so you may want to go home rather than back to the office. You may experience some temporary side effects which dissipate quickly.

How many treatments are needed?

Different depth and levels of dermal rollers are available. These rollers are suited for certain skin types and conditions. A recommended course of six to ten treatments at one to three weekly intervals are best. There after maintenance treatments at one to two per year (minimum three months between each).
