MicroNeedling Facial

MicroNeedling PRP $149

MicroNeedling – also known as Collagen Induction Treatment or C.I.T – has been gaining in popularity for its ability to help rejuvenate the skin. Celebrities such as Naomi Watts and Jennifer Aniston swear by it. As our skin ages, the repair and rejuvenation mechanisms begin to decline naturally, beginning in our mid-twenties. The effect is due to a decrease of collagen density in our skin.

MicroNeedling is a revolutionary skin treatment where a handpiece with small needles creates micro controlled punctures, putting your skin into ‘repair mode and stimulates your own bodies healing response. The therapy results in an increases of collagen and elastin production and can be done as a facial or used with your bodies own PRP (platelet rich plasma and growth factors which stimulates a stem cell response. Stem cells support growth of new collagen and blood vessels to repair and regenerate the skin, reversing the signs of aging.

The MicroNeedling treatment plan, over time may result the following benefits:

  • Improve sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improve the appearance of scars and stretchmarks
  • Improve the appearance of age spots and acne
  • Improve the appearance of large pores and rosacea

So is this incredible treatment just for the face? NO!

One of the very exciting things for us women and men alike is that this is a great treatment for things like stretch marks, cellulite, and even unsightly veins.
By improving blood circulation and reducing the size of the fat cells, cellulite and stretchmarks are reduced, resulting in visibly firmer and smoother looking skin.

MicroNeedling is even more effective when combined with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy – also known as the ‘ Vampire Lift’ – gives excellent results. PRP contains growth factors that additionally stimulate cellular regeneration and collagen production. This is done by drawing a sample of your blood and centrifuging it (spinning it) to separate the red blood cells – erythrocytes from the plasma which contain platelets which release a cascade of growth factors which induce natural collagen production for firmer, glowing and wrinkle free skin. 

Does MicroNeedling hurt?

A topical anesthetic cream is used before the treatment, so discomfort is minimal. The most sensitive areas tend to be the forehead and upper lip. Redness and swelling or bruising after treatment/ post treatment may occur but typically only lasts 24-48 hours, until the skin returns to normal.
Use of sunscreen and avoidance of direct sunlight is strongly recommended after treatment .

How long before you see results?

While MicroNeedling is a revolutionary skin treatment, the healing results are seen over time.
Final results won’t be noticeable for three to twelve months, as boosting collagen and elastin within the dermis take time. Results are dependent on the individual.
Best visible results are seen with a series of at least 4 to 12 treatments, spaced 3 to 6 weeks apart.
The complexion becomes more even and brighter over time and the results are enhanced if combined with specific medical grade creams and active ingredients recommended by your therapist.

DermaPlaning Facial

DermaPlaning $59

What is DermaPlaning?

DermaPlaning is a safe when properly performed and highly effective physical exfoliation procedure. It involves use of a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently “shave” the skin’s surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin along with fine, vellus hair (also called “peach fuzz”).
DermaPlaning can be performed monthly, in less than thirty minutes, with little downtime post-treatment. DermaPlaning is only performed on the face; however, it is not meant to be used to shape eyebrows, which are made up of “terminal” (not vellus) hairs. The nose area is also avoided.

Benefits of DermaPlaning

Physical exfoliation triggers the cell regeneration process and allows facial products to better penetrate the skin. While some practitioners perform a chemical peel post-DermaPlaning. We don’t recommend this, especially if you’ve never had either treatment before or have sensitive skin.
DermaPlaning is also excellent to rid the face of excess fine hairs which can often accumulate dirt and oil. Contrary to popular belief, vellus hairs, as opposed to terminal hair, tend not to grow back thicker or darker. Microdermabrasion, which also physically exfoliates skin, does not remove the majority of vellus hair. Exfoliation of dead cells along with removal of fine hairs results in healthier, brighter skin with a smoother look and feel.

Who should consider DermaPlaning?

DermaPlaning is especially effective on those with dry or rough skin texture and helps to minimize superficial acne scarring or uneven skin tone. It is also beneficial for mature skin, which tends to have a buildup of dead cells as cellular regeneration slows down with age. DermaPlaning is generally safe for pregnant or lactating clients who cannot have chemical peels (chemical peels penetrate skin at the cellular level, thus are contraindicated). Those with very oily or active acne should avoid this procedure as well as anyone with thick, dark facial hair.

Potential Benefits:

Minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Reduces the appearance of hyper-pigmentation, stimulates circulation and improves hydration
Encourages normal shedding (desquamation) of stratum corneum (outermost layer of the epidermis, consisting of dead skin cells)
Can be used with meso therapy, micro current and other facial treatments (if not contraindicated)

What is the downtime?

There is little downtime associated with this procedure, however we stress the importance of using sunscreen to reduce the chance of hyperpigmentation. DermaPlaning can be done as often as every two weeks, although it is usually done when vellus hair starts to grow back, generally within about a month.

Indications:

DermaPlaning is most often used on patients with rough, dry skin, superficial hyperpigmentation, mild acne scarring, or fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment results in a more refined, smooth, “glowing” appearance.

Contraindications:

  • Avoid the procedure if you have allergies to nickel metal
  • Avoid the procedure if you have a particular sensitive skin
  • Avoid the procedure if experiencing and inflamed acne, skin infections or unhealed wounds
  • Avoid the procedure if experiencing any medical conditions impairing you health
  • Avoid the procedure if Accutane/Isotretinoin was used within the last 6 months
  • Avoid use of retinoids or treatments for auto-immune disease for 24 hours before treatment
  • Avoid direct sun exposure to the treated area for 24 hours after treatment
