Your Guide to Micro-Needling
Are you one of the many patients in Virgina Beach or Kempsville who has tried beauty product after beauty product, in pursuit of smooth, even, radiant skin, with no luck? At Restoration MedSpa, we offer a treatment that can not only give you that radiant glow you desire, but can also diminish the appearance of acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation: micro-needling.
What is it?
Micro-needling is a treatment done to treat acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, brown spots, and hyperpigmentation on the face. Using a special instrument called a micro-needle pen, small micro injuries are created in the skin, which stimulates the creation of collagen & elastin, promoting youth and radiant glow in the skin. It also allows for better penetration of skincare products. This treatment can be used on all skin types and conditions.
How is it done?
After a consultation, you will be prepared for the treatment. First, your skin will be cleansed and then a numbing cream will be applied. Next, a hyaluronic acid serum will be applied to the skin in order to help the micro-needle device better glide over the skin. The micro-needle pen will then be rolled across the skin. Patients will not feel any pain due to the numbing cream, as well as the growth factor serums to promote collagen and elastin creation.
It is important to understand that this treatment should not be done on skin that is irritated, inflamed, has eczema or has acne. After your micro-needling treatment, your skin will be red or flushed, though this will dissipate with time.
