What is Needle-Lite?
Needle-Lite is an exciting procedure that combines two reputable skin tightening practices — microneedling and intense pulsed light therapy (IPL) — to effectively tighten the neck. After treatment, the skin in this area will have improved elasticity, texture, and an overall more youthful appearance.
How Does it Work?
In order to understand how Needle-Lite is able to dramatically firm an aging neck, it’s important to learn how microneedling and IPL therapy work when used independently of each other.
During microneedling treatments, an applicator dotted with tiny, sharp needles is moved across the treatment area, creating controlled skin injuries as it is moved. These injuries are large enough to stimulate healing, but small enough that there is no significant downtime associated with the procedure. As these micro injuries begin to heal, elastin, collagen, and other growth factors rush to the surface of the skin, restoring, rejuvenating, and tightening its appearance.
While microneedling tackles the uppermost layer of the skin, IPL therapy targets the deeper layers of the skin. Intense pulsed light is focused at the dermis. As this light is absorbed by tissue, it contracts the lower layer of collagen, tightening the skin from within.
When combined into one comprehensive procedure, these two treatments effectively tackle skin tightening from both outside and within the skin. This all over tightening gives patients better results than they would get with either treatment alone. You might also consider regular facials to maintain your incredible skin.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Anyone that is experiencing loosened skin around the neck and would like to tighten without the need for surgery is a good candidate for a Needle-Lite procedure. One of the biggest benefits of Needle-Like is its universal accessibility– it is appropriate for use on all skin types and tones. While most people can undergo this procedure, prospective patients will have to schedule and attend a consultation appointment before beginning treatment.
