If you’re fighting the sands of time as they try to glide across your face, you’ve probably heard about microneedling. But if you’re like most people, you haven’t considered it because of the word needle. We get it! But take a moment to read more about this amazing treatment before you cross it off your list.
What Exactly Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a non-surgical, collagen-inducing procedure that reduces or eliminates fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, reduces scarring, and creates smoother, more even-toned skin.
Does Microneedling Hurt?
Honestly, it depends on your provider and the type of tool he or she uses. At Pure Vive Med Spa, our experienced, board-certified nurse practitioners, Lindsey Carter and Katie Walker, use Skin Pen, an FDA-approved microneedling device. The Skin Pen is clinically proven safe and effective for all skin types, and jump-starts new collagen production without heat or chemicals.
Skin Pen allows for a treatment that is minimally painful. An overwhelming majority of Pure Vive’s clients don’t complain about pain at all because Lindsey and Katie 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.
What Can I Expect From My Microneedling Treatment?
The most important thing to expect is results. Pure Vive’s microneedling treatment offers visible, long-lasting results. This treatment is a great option for those with acne scarring as it significantly reduces the scarring and promotes an even skin texture. This is also an ideal treatment for people who do not want laser treatments, but do want something more than a peel.
