At Simply Radiant Aesthetics, we offer safe and effective microneedling treatments to help you achieve a smoother, more youthful complexion.
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive treatment that uses tiny needles to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing response and boost collagen and elastin production, resulting in smoother, firmer, and more even skin.
HOW IT WORKS
Microneedling works by creating controlled micro-injuries to the skin using a specialized device with small, fine needles. These tiny punctures trigger the body’s natural healing response and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.
During a microneedling treatment, the device is passed over the skin, creating tiny punctures in the surface. These punctures are not deep enough to cause significant damage or scarring but are enough to trigger the body’s natural healing response. As the skin heals, new collagen and elastin fibers are produced, leading to smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin.
WHAT TO EXPECT
At your consultation, one of our aestheticians will begin by discussing your skin concerns and medical history to ensure that microneedling is a safe and appropriate treatment for you.
During your microneedling treatment, your skin will be thoroughly cleansed, and numbing cream may be applied to the treatment area. We will use a specialized device with small, fine needles to create tiny punctures on the surface of your skin. The depth and intensity of the needles can be adjusted based on your skin’s unique needs and concerns.
Finally, we apply a serum or other treatment product to the treatment area to enhance the results of the microneedling.
• Improves fine lines and wrinkles
• Treats acne scarring
• Helps with skin tone and texture
• Simulates collagen production
• Reduces the appearance of pores
• Safe for all skin types
• Minimally-invasive with little downtime
After the microneedling treatment, you may experience some redness, swelling, and sensitivity. We may apply a soothing cream or serum to help calm and hydrate your skin.
A few days after your treatment your skin may become dry. Some patients go straight back to work, while others prefer to schedule their treatment over the weekend.
We will provide detailed instructions on how to care for your skin after the treatment, including avoiding sun exposure, wearing sunscreen, and avoiding harsh skincare products.
SkinPen Microneedling is a type of microneedling treatment that uses a specialized device called the SkinPen to create tiny punctures in the skin’s surface. This stimulates the body’s natural healing response and promotes the production of collagen and elastin, leading to smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin.
Benefits of SkinPen Microneedling include reduced fine lines and wrinkles, improved skin texture, minimized acne scars, more even skin tone, reduced pore size, and increased product absorption. The treatment is safe and effective for most people, and can be customized to meet the specific needs and concerns of each individual patient.
Microneedling with PRP
Microneedling with PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is a type of microneedling treatment that involves the use of a patient’s own blood plasma, which is rich in growth factors and other healing agents. The PRP is applied to the skin during the microneedling treatment to enhance the results.
Microneedling with PRP can help to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, sun damage, uneven skin tone and texture, enlarged pores, and stretch marks. The treatment is minimally invasive and can promote the production of collagen and elastin for smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The main difference between SkinPen Microneedling and Microneedling with PRP is that Microneedling with PRP involves the use of a patient’s own blood plasma, which is rich in growth factors and other healing agents, to enhance the results of the microneedling treatment.
Both treatments offer similar benefits, such as improved skin texture, reduced fine lines and wrinkles, minimized acne scars, more even skin tone, reduced pore size, and increased product absorption.
To prepare for your microneedling treatment, there are a few things you can do to ensure the best results. First, avoid any topical treatments that may irritate your skin, such as retinoids or exfoliants, for 7 days prior to the treatment. It is also recommended that you avoid sun exposure for a few days before the treatment and wear sunscreen when you do go outside. On the day of the treatment, come to your appointment with clean, makeup-free skin, and avoid wearing any tight or restrictive clothing that may rub against the treatment area.
Your comfort is our first priority. We allow for an extra time prior to your microneedling treatment to apply a numbing cream and ensure it is fully activated. Patients find microneedling to be very tolerable and most clients report little to no discomfort.
The number of microneedling treatments needed depends on your skin’s unique needs and concerns. Typically, a series of 3-6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart is recommended for optimal results.
Microneedling treatments are generally safe and effective for most people, and are suitable for individuals of all skin types. However, individuals with certain medical conditions, such as active skin infections, open wounds, or a history of keloid scars, may not be good candidates for microneedling. It is also recommended that individuals who are pregnant or breastfeeding avoid microneedling treatments. Book a complimentary consultation with one of our medical aestheticians to determine if microneedling is a safe and appropriate treatment for you.
There is usually some mild redness, swelling, and sensitivity after a microneedling treatment, but these side effects typically subside within a few days. You may be advised to avoid sun exposure and wear sunscreen after the treatment to protect your skin.
The results of microneedling treatment can vary depending on the individual and the specific treatment plan, but most patients begin to see some improvement in their skin’s texture and tone within a few days to a week after the treatment. Most patients see continued improvement in their skin’s appearance over the course of several months, with optimal results typically visible after a series of 3-6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
