MIcroneedling is a treatment that uses a group of 36 tiny needles to stimulate skin restoration. New Reflection Medspa & Wellness Center uses the state-of-the-art Vivace fractional microneedling system, which combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy and dual LED lights for a complete skin renewal experience.
Microneedling is effective for many skin issues, including:
Many patients choose microneedling for general skin rejuvenation as well. If you have other areas of concern, don’t hesitate to ask.
In microneedling treatments, a group of tiny needles, ranging from 0.5 to 3.5 mm, penetrate your skin, stopping in the dermis.
The dermis is where you produce collagen and elastin, which lend volume and elasticity to your skin. The needles stimulate new collagen and elastin growth.
The radiofrequency energy and red LED lights encourage additional collagen and elastin growth, while the blue LED lights disrupt acne-causing bacteria.
Microneedling encourages new skin to rise up and replace old and damaged skin. Since you have new collagen and elastin as support and the red light deters acne, the new skin looks firmer, tighter, and clearer.
New Reflection Medspa & Wellness Center provides microneedling pretreatment guidelines a couple of weeks before your scheduled treatment. You must discontinue using all strong exfoliating agents and avoid the sun for two weeks before your microneedling treatment.
Additionally, you’ll discuss your current medications and learn about any drugs that you might need to discontinue temporarily.
After your microneedling session, New Reflection Medspa & Wellness Center provides skin care instructions. You’ll likely experience some scabbing in the next week. It’s important to avoid picking or scratching your skin. The scabs will fall off naturally.
You can use a gentle cleanser and apply the recommended serums every day. While it’s okay to wear mineral makeup in the days following your treatment, it’s ideal if you have bare skin for the first week.
Vivace microneedling can give you youthfully smooth, firm, and glowing skin. To find out how it can help you look your best, call the New Reflection Medspa & Wellness Center office or book an appointment using the online scheduling feature now.
