  • Your Skin with Microneedling by Aesthetics Lab

Micro needling has become one of the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedures for improving the appearance of skin. By causing controlled micro-injuries to the skin using fine needles, micro needling stimulates your skin’s natural collagen and elastin production. This results in smoother, plumper, and more youthful-looking skin.

Aesthetics Lab is recognized as a leader in providing specialized microneedling treatments. Our trained aestheticians are experts in microneedling and use high-quality dermal rollers and pen devices to achieve excellent results. In this article, we will explore how microneedling works, the results you can expect to see, costs, and why Aesthetics Lab should be your choice for microneedling treatments.

How Microneedling Works

Microneedling is a non-invasive procedure that involves rolling tiny sterile needles over the skin to cause micro-punctures in the skin. The needles are very fine, usually 0.25-3mm in length, and result in controlled damage to the dermis that stimulates new collagen and elastin production.

When the needles puncture the skin, they trigger the body’s natural wound healing response. This involves the production of growth factors and cytokines that stimulate fibroblasts (collagen-producing cells). Over the next several weeks, your body’s healing process results in thickening of the dermal layer and an increase in collagen and elastin.

The end result is tighter, firmer, and smoother skin. Fine lines, wrinkles and signs of photoaging like uneven skin tone and texture are diminished. Microneedling also improves the absorption of topical creams and serums by creating micro-channels in the skin. This allows for deeper penetration of active skincare ingredients to further enhance results.

Microneedling Treatments at Aesthetics Lab

At Aesthetics Lab, we use state-of-the-art microneedling devices to achieve optimal results safely and comfortably. Our professional-grade dermal rollers have 192 diamond-tipped micro-needles of varying depths between 0.25mm to 3mm that are carefully rolled across your cleansed skin in multiple directions.

For those seeking even more intensive treatments, we also offer the Dr. Pen microneedling device. Used by many leading doctors and medi-spas, this advanced pen smoothly glides the needles into the skin for precision treatment of areas like the lips, under eyes and décolletage.

All of our treatments are performed by licensed nurses and estheticians who are fully trained in microneedling protocols. Several numbing creams are applied prior to treat to minimize any discomfort. The entire procedure takes only 30-45 minutes with minimal to no downtime.

After Microneedling Precautions

We advise avoiding direct sun exposure, harsh alpha hydroxy acids and retinols for 2-3 days post treatment to allow your skin to heal properly. Aesthetics Lab provides all clients with a comprehensive at-home regimen including antibacterial cleansers, calming creams and SPF to use during this time.

Some minor flaking, redness or swelling may occur but resolves within 24-48 hours. Downtime is significantly less than laser resurfacing or other invasive procedures. Full results are seen within 3-6 months as your natural collagen production has increased over repeated microneedling sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart, for a total of 3-6 treatments.

Microneedling Cost and Specials

A single microneedling treatment at Aesthetics Lab. However, we understand ongoing cosmetic procedures can become expensive. That’s why we offer special package deals to our valued clients.

Here are some additional details that could be included in the article:

  • Provide more scientific background on how microneedling stimulates collagen production. Explain that it causes the body’s wound healing cascade to activate, signaling fibroblasts to overproduce collagen and elastin to repair the micro-punctures. Growth factors like TGF-β and VEGF are released.
  • Highlight specific conditions that see great results from microneedling, like acne scarring, hyperpigmentation from melasma/sun damage, and signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles and laxity. Microneedling is often used in medical spas as an adjunct treatment with other modalities.
  • Emphasize AestheticsLab’s credible reputation, with licensed and experienced practitioners who maintain continuing education. Client safety is the top priority and all tools are aseptically prepared per medical guidelines. Advanced dermal rollers and micropen devices are industry leaders.
  • Detail appropriate candidates – generally good skin health with no active infections or medications that could interfere with wound healing. Microneedling also helps some skin conditions like rosacea/broken capillaries.
  • Explain a typical protocol may be 6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks. Deeper 1.5mm depth for collagen boosting effects, then maintain with 0.5-1mm. Some see results after 3 sessions, but a full series ensures longevity.
  • Tips on pre/post care – use only recommended products free of irritants. Gently exfoliate 1-2x weekly to optimize absorption of serums applied after microneedling. Use broad spectrum SPF daily.
  • Real patient testimonials add credibility to results seen like smoother texture, firming, reduced scarring and rejuvenated glow. Ask licensed estheticians about their before/after photos for clinical examples.

Patient Preparation for Chemical Peels at Aesthetics Lab

At Aesthetics Lab, we believe that proper preparation is essential for maximizing the results and minimizing downtime associated with chemical peels. Here’s an overview of the steps involved in preparing for your treatment:

1. Consultation and Pre-Treatment Instructions:

  • During your initial consultation, our team will provide you with detailed pre-treatment instructions to ensure optimal results. These instructions may include:
  • Discontinuing certain medications: Some medications, such as Accutane or blood thinners, can increase the risk of complications during and after a chemical peel. Our team will advise you on which medications to avoid and for how long.
  • Avoiding sun exposure: Sun exposure can make your skin more sensitive to the peel solution and increase the risk of hyperpigmentation. We recommend avoiding direct sunlight and using a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher for at least two weeks before your treatment.
  • Stopping smoking: Smoking can impair healing and increase the risk of complications. We recommend quitting smoking at least two weeks before your chemical peel.
  • Hydrating your skin: Well-hydrated skin is better able to tolerate the peel solution and recover more quickly. We recommend increasing your water intake and using a gentle moisturizer in the weeks leading up to your treatment.

2. Pre-Treatment Skin Care Regimen:

Our team may recommend a specific pre-treatment skin care regimen to prepare your skin for the chemical peel. This may include using gentle cleansers, exfoliating products, and hydrating serums. Following these recommendations will help to ensure that your skin is in optimal condition for the treatment.

3. Day of Treatment:

On the day of your treatment, please arrive with clean, makeup-free skin. We will cleanse your skin again and apply a topical numbing cream to minimize discomfort during the procedure.

4. Post-Treatment Care:

  • Following your chemical peel, it is crucial to follow the post-treatment care instructions provided by our team. This may include:
  • Keeping the treated area clean: Gently cleanse the treated area with a mild cleanser and lukewarm water twice a day.
  • Applying moisturizer: Use a gentle, fragrance-free moisturizer to keep the skin hydrated and protected.
  • Avoiding sun exposure: Continue to avoid direct sunlight and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher for at least six weeks after your treatment.
  • Avoiding picking or scratching: Allow the skin to heal naturally and avoid picking or scratching, which can lead to scarring.

Adding Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) to Microneedling:

At Aesthetics Lab, we offer the option of adding platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to your microneedling treatment. PRP is a concentrated solution of platelets derived from your own blood. Platelets contain growth factors that can stimulate collagen production, accelerate healing, and enhance the results of microneedling.

Benefits of PRP added to Microneedling:

  • Enhanced collagen production: PRP stimulates the production of collagen, which is essential for maintaining skin elasticity and firmness.
  • Improved skin texture and tone: PRP can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars, resulting in smoother, more even-toned skin.
  • Accelerated healing: PRP promotes faster healing after microneedling, minimizing downtime and discomfort.
  • Enhanced results: Combining PRP with microneedling can significantly enhance the results of the treatment, leading to a more youthful and radiant complexion.
