What is microneedling?
Request A Complimentary Consultation
Microneedling is a great treatment for acne scars and pigmentation. It’s a treatment that uses a pen-shaped electric medical device that employs fine needles to penetrate the surface of the skin at a very high speed to rebuild elasticity and reduce the size of pores. At Hush LA Medspa, we use the new MicroPen EVO. The MicroPen EVO uses tiny needles to penetrate through your skin to create tiny injuries. As a result of this, your body responds by repairing that damage and producing new collagen. Your skin is left much smoother and plumper.
Microneedling can be used on most areas of the body and will help improve
– signs of aging
– surgery & burn scars
– acne scars
– stretch marks
– sagging skin
– skin laxity or looseness
– overall skin texture and tone
Microneedling treatment begins with cleaning and numbing the skin. A collagen-stimulating product, Vitamin C serum, and/or skin lightener is also used. A small pen with tiny needles is used to create tiny wounds in the skin.
The speed and adjustability of the needles allow for more effective piercing and absorption of skin products. Vitamin-C serum or Hyaluronic acid are used after the procedure to hydrate, heal and protect the skin.
Microneedling may help you with the following issues and concerns:
- Breaks up and improves acne scarring
- Minimizes enlarged pores
- Sun damage
- Increases collagen and elastin production in the skin
- Improves lax or sagging skin
- Smooths away fine lines and wrinkles
- Minimally invasive treatment
- Minimal recovery period
How long do the results of Microneedling last?
With as few as three non-invasive and affordable treatments spaced 30 days apart, you can improve your appearance for six months after your last treatment – and step out with confidence.
Although treated skin may experience burning or itching, avoid using anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen, Motrin, or Advil, as they interfere with the skin’s natural rejuvenation. At Hush LA Medspa, we advise against using skin care products on your face the day before and after your treatment, although we recommend using a moisturizer to soothe your skin.
Starting the next day, you can use a mild facial cleanser to clean dry, scaly skin from the treatment area before applying your regular moisturizer. You may notice that your facial skin gets drier every day as the outer skin eventually separates, so you need to keep your face clean. It takes a week for your skin to look smooth and radiant after microneedling.
What is PRP Vampire Facial?
You may have heard about the latest skincare trend, the vampire facial. Reality TV stars love this facial. The vampire facial, also known as Microneedling with PRP, is a cosmetic procedure that involves drawing blood from a patient, separating platelets, and applying them back onto the face.
PRP contains growth factors that can stimulate cell growth and turnover and speed up healing in the body. Along with its use in cosmetic treatments, doctors often use PRP to help athletes recover from injuries or to encourage hair growth in people struggling with baldness.
Vampire Facial procedure
Vampire facial treatment takes less time to perform than some other cosmetic treatments and has a shorter recovery period.
The treatment begins with a blood draw. Our aestheticians will draw a few ounces of your blood and then spin it through a centrifuge in order to concentrate the platelets and isolate the PRP. After cleansing your skin and applying a topical anesthetic to numb your face, they’ll move the microneedling device across your skin, while the needles move up and down in a stamp-like motion. Once the microneedling is complete, they’ll spread the PRP over your skin.
Vampire Facial treatment areas
Microneedling can be beneficial for the face and other areas like the hands and chest, whereas, PRP facial is only for the face. Vampire facials can help improve many of the following skin concerns:
Dark spots – Microneedling stimulates cell turnover, which can remove dark spots like melisma, sun damage, and freckles.
Dullness – Cell turnover helps exfoliate the skin, removing dead and dull cells. The new skin cells will make you look more refreshed and youthful.
Fine lines – While a vampire facial might not be able to treat deep creases and wrinkles, it can reduce the appearance of fine lines by encouraging cell turnover and improving collagen production.
Acne scars – Microneedling treatment for acne scars helps to smooth areas of the face that are sunken due to acne. It also reduces early wrinkles around the eyes and mouth.
Microneedling is considered safe. However, as with any procedure, there might be some risks involved.
After microneedling, you may have an allergic reaction to the cream or serum. And the wounds can get infected if you don’t keep your skin clean.
If you are not happy with your uneven skin texture or want to reduce your acne scarring and lax facial skin, Microneedling treatment may be right for you. To discuss whether Microneedling is right for you contact our expert team.
Microneedling is one of the most effective and simplest treatments for reducing acne. It can improve the appearance of acne scars and can help reduce acne. The result of this treatment is smoother skin, a reduction in skin imperfections, and better skin hydration.
For better results, you should get at least 3-4 microneedling treatments that are spaced out every 4-6 weeks. Due to the nature of the treatment, your skin needs ample time to heal between treatments.
With the Vampire Facial, growth factors combined with microneedling turn on the skin’s healing mechanisms, leading to a decrease in fine lines and wrinkles, increased elasticity and firmness, smoother texture, and younger color.
If you’ve recently started to see signs of aging on your face, such as delicate lines, uneven texture and sun spots, you might be an excellent candidate for a vampire facial.
Some people see results after just one treatment, but Hush LA Medspa recommends appointments for the best results. You can expect a reduction in wrinkles and a more even skin tone as platelet-rich plasma and new collagen production affect the treatment area.
