Minimize the appearance of wrinkles, scars, stretch marks and acne scars with MicroNeedling
What is MircoNeedling?
The Livra Stamping System, a MicroNeedling treatment, used as part of a Vampire Facial, is a tightening skin rejuvenation therapy procedure, done at the Aesthetics by Design medical spa. MicroNeedling, initially designed as derma roller technology, causes micro-punctures to the skin, which stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, initiating an entire cascade of events in the healing process resulting in tissue remodeling. The The ProCell microchanneling device is not another MicroNeedling pen. MicroNeedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy skin tightening, involves microscopic punctures in the epidermis with the MicronNeedle device, improving the overall appearance of aging skin, increasing the vitality of your skin, while reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, tone, texture, traumatic scars and the reduction of acne inflammation.
You can benefit from MircoNeedling?
MicroNeedling is a tailored medispa procedure for patients looking to achieve optimal results in wrinkle reduction, minimization of large pore size, acne scarring, skin pigmentation, sun damage, and skin rejuvenation. All skin types benefit from this treatment. The automatic vibration with the best derma device, associated with the MicroNeedling procedure increases the efficiency of this treatment, making it significantly quicker than some other more aggressive treatments with less epidermal damage, while reducing pain or discomfort. It is a process involving a series of treatments with minimal downtime.
In preparation for the MicroNeedling treatment, one of our highly trained clinical skincare aestheticians will gently cleanse the skin and apply a thin layer of numbing cream to the entire treatment area, which will minimize any discomfort felt by the patient during the treatment. The MicroNeedling procedure can be performed on areas of the body such as the face, neck, chest and hands. During the procedure, the micro needles stamp the skin and there is no concern that the skin will be torn by dragging a roller or pen across it. MicroNeedling is a minimally invasive procedure stimulating the release of epidermal growth factors with virtually no damage to the epidermis (the top layer of skin). This treatment creates only microscopic punctures in the epidermis, which stimulates cells called kertinocytes that activate the production of new collagen and elastin through the release of powerful growth factors and cytonkines. The procedure typically lasts anywhere from 10-15 minutes. Typically a minimum of 3 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart is required to achieve optimal skin rejuvenation.
What to expect after MicroNeedling:
The Livra Stamping System approach produces maximum stimulation, with minimal inflammation. This balanced approach to skin rejuvenation reduces recovery time to near zero, while maximizing results! Downtime is minimal if at all due to the fact the Livra Stamping System is designed to reduce inflammation, therefore will initiate the healing cascade much faster and more effectively. The typical recovery involves just a day or so of mild redness and swelling, and any evidence that you’ve had a minor procedure done can be covered with a quality mineral makeup like Oxygenetics within just 2 hours of treatment. Avoid glycolic acid, retinol products, self tanner, and sun exposure for 12-24 hours. We will apply hydrating serum, moisturizer and mineral sun screen after the procedure is complete.
You’ll experience an immediate improvement in skin tone, texture, laxity, fine lines and wrinkles. Finally, you’ll see long term improvements in your skin that truly last when you complete a series of treatments as recommended by our skin care professionals.
