How does the microneedling procedure work?
Microneedling is an effective and popular cosmetic procedure. It works by stimulating your skin into producing more collagen. Essentially the tiny pinpricks cause minor stress to the skin, and as the skin recovers from those pinpricks it produces new collagen-rich tissue. As your skin heals, the recovered skin will be more even in tone and texture.
Over time and as we age it’s normal for our skin to lose elasticity and produce less collagen. By encouraging our skin to regenerate and produce more collagen, this service allows the skin on your face to look firmer and more youthful. It effectively reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, and acne scarring.
The procedure for microneedling is simple. Our talented staff will make sure you’re comfortable in the Lux Spa. A topical anesthetic is applied to the skin, to effectively reduce any chance of pain or discomfort during the procedure. (Often times this is done about an hour before the procedure, although the actual procedure only takes about 30 minutes.)
During the actual procedure, we will use a small tool called the SkinPen which is the only class II microneedling device cleared by the FDA. At Lux Med Spa, we demand the best for our patients, and the SkinPen is the only advanced medical grade device in the US. It has a precise safe needle depth that has been clinically proven to provide safe and effective results.
To perform the procedure your specialist will roll the SkinPen across the desired areas for resurfacing. This tool will make tiny pricks through your skin. The individual pinpricks are so small that you likely won’t feel them at all after the procedure. Because the SkinPen is moved evenly across the skin the skin rejuvenates evenly as it heals. The result is a more even and rejuvenated skin surface. We’re confident you’re going to love it!
