Are the ointments and creams you’re buying to refresh and smooth out dull, aging skin not working? Do you want to give your skin a natural boost that has you looking and feeling gorgeous in just a few simple sessions? You might be interested in microneedling, an impressive cosmetic treatment that rejuvenates the skin by turning over new skin cells and affording patients a stunning, refreshed look. We’re thrilled to offer this service here at Bella Tu Medspa in Nyack, NJ.
What Are the Benefits of Microneedling?
This amazing treatment stimulates the body’s production of collagen and elastin, two important proteins that keep the skin perky and voluminous. More volume means fine lines and wrinkles become more filled out, giving a more youthful appearance. This added volume also works to smooth out acne scars and hydrate roughly-textured skin. Microneedling also turns over new skin cells, which can help even out an unbalanced skin tone or skin damaged by broken capillaries. It can even diminish the appearance of acne and enlarged pores!
So How Does It Work?
Incredibly, this treatment gets your body creating new skin cells and producing new proteins by forcing them to heal themselves. During treatment, careful and controlled injuries are made along the skin’s surface using ultra-fine needles. These needles puncture the skin, reaching the top few layers, and triggering the body’s cell regeneration process – AKA all the exciting benefits mentioned above. Our expert staff ensures that the entire process is safe and targeted. Patients love that, because all the work is really done by the body, it yields natural but noticeable results.
What Should I Expect From This Treatment?
The first step of this process will be to come in for a consultation. This will be your chance to talk us through your cosmetic goals, and we can evaluate and make sure this treatment is going to be a good fit for you. We’ll also assess your medical history and any medication you’re on. If everything looks good, we’ll draw up your unique treatment plan that will be used during your sessions. And that’s it! It’s unlikely you’ll be asked to take any extra steps ahead of your treatment.
On the Day
Treatment is performed in-house here in our beautiful Nyak office. Patients are asked to come in with a clean, makeup-free face. We may apply a topical numbing cream to the skin to ensure your experience is as comfortable as possible. We’ll then use the handheld needle device to make the micro-injuries in your skin. The whole process will take about fifteen breezy minutes! We‘ll finish off by spreading some moisturizer on the treatment area, then you’ll be free to go.
Astoundingly, no recovery period is needed following your treatment. Unlike cosmetic surgeries such as a FaceLift, you won’t be required to take any time off work or your normal life while your body heals. This is because this treatment is minimally invasive and doesn’t even use a local anesthetic – perfect for those who want to drive themselves to and from their session! We may advise against a few things, such as vigorous exercise or exposure to high temperatures, but this will only be for a few days following treatment.
Over the weeks following treatment, the body works on generating new cells and producing new elastin and collagen. It’s usually at around two weeks after treatment that this becomes most noticeable on the skin when there’s added volume and perkiness and a more even skin tone. The overall look is revitalized, stunning skin that still looks totally natural; it’s the perfect way to enhance your natural beauty! These breathtaking results last for up to five months.
How Many Sessions Will I Need To See Results?
Generally, patients are recommended between three and five sessions to achieve prime results. We tend to space each session about six weeks apart, so the skin has time to heal before another micro-injury is made. During these breaks from treatment, we’ll be able to assess your skin’s progress and see if any changes need to be made to your treatment plan or session schedule. Each session is as simple and quick as the first, so they’ll barely take time out of your day!
Who Is a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
Because this treatment can remedy so many skin concerns, there’s no one “perfect candidate” we to seek it out. Instead, we encourage anyone over 18 who wants re-energized skin to come in for an initial consultation, regardless of age, gender, or skin tone. Certain medications and conditions may prohibit you from undergoing treatment, but if this is the case, we’ll be able to recommend several great alternatives during your consultation.
Are You Ready for Glowing, Rejuvenated Skin?
If the over-the-counter skincare products aren’t doing anything to refresh your skin, you might be ready to try something new. Microneedling can give patients a natural-looking, radiant glow that leaves them looking more youthful, rested, and confident. If you’re ready to talk to us about this incredible treatment, we can’t wait to hear from you! Schedule your consultation with our team at Bella Tu Medspa here in Nyack, NJ, today.
