Do you want your skin to glow in holiday photos this year? If you have acne scarring, deeper wrinkles, or sun damage on your face or neck, microneedling may be just the treatment you need for healthy, glowing skin.
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a non-surgical, non-invasive, collagen-inducing procedure that uses the skin’s own ability to heal itself. It reduces or eliminates fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, reduces scarring, and creates smoother, more even-toned skin.
At Pure Vive Med Spa, we offer three different types of microneedling. Your treatment provider will recommend the best option for your goals after your free consultation, but here are some details to help you learn more about your options.
Microneedling With Hyaluronic Acid
When microneedling is paired with hyaluronic acid (which attracts moisture to the skin), it provides the added benefit of plumping the skin and providing deep moisturization. This helps to prevent the visible signs of aging. For this procedure, we use the Skin Pen.
The Skin Pen is clinically proven safe and effective for all skin types, and jump-starts new collagen production without heat or chemicals for a treatment that is minimally painful. An overwhelming majority of Pure Vive’s clients don’t complain about pain at all because our treatment providers use a topical numbing cream before the procedure. Downtime includes a bit of redness that lasts for a few hours in some people, and a day or two at most for some. Most people can go to work the next day without any concerns.
Microneedling With Radiofrequency
VoluDerm™ is a revolutionary microneedling tool that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to nonsurgically diminish signs of aging and revitalize skin on the face and other delicate areas of the body. This minimally-invasive treatment uses ultra-thin electrodes while applying RF energy to penetrate the skin smoothly and effectively, causing minimal pain and discomfort, and generating maximum results. This unique technology stimulates the body to naturally produce hyaluronic acid, new collagen, and elastin for all skin types.
Microneedling With Platelet Rich Plasma
This minimally-invasive treatment transforms and repairs your skin while delivering key nutrients. Also known as the Vampire Facial, this treatment uses your own blood, separated into three to take full benefits of your own natural growth factors that regulate and activate cell migration and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. If you have severe acne scarring, wrinkles, or hyperpigmentation, this might be the best treatment for your skin.
