Simple Health Wellness is excited to announce that we are now offering cosmetic Microneedling treatments! Our Microneedling sessions include a unique combination of relaxing acupuncture, red light therapy, hydrating hyaluronic serum, and Microneedling. These treatments have been clinically proven to enhance the overall health of the skin without being invasive like cosmetic surgery or having the risk of potentially dangerous side effects like Botox injections and fillers.
What does Microneedling help with?
Facial Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment used to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, large pores, and uneven skin texture.
How does facial Microneedling work?
The procedure involves the use of a device with small, sterile needles that puncture the skin, creating tiny micro-injuries. This stimulates the skin's natural healing response, promoting collagen and elastin production, resulting in a smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking complexion over time.
The micro channels created by the Microneedling process also allow for a much deeper penetration of skin care products such as hyaluronic acid and stem-cell enhanced anti-aging serums.
When the needles penetrate the skin, they trigger the release of growth factors and cytokines that promote collagen and elastin production. Collagen is the protein responsible for skin elasticity, while elastin provides the skin with its firmness. As we age, collagen and elastin production decreases, leading to the formation of wrinkles and fine lines. Microneedling helps to boost collagen and elastin production, resulting in firmer, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin.
What are the benefits of facial Microneedling?
Facial microneedling offers several benefits, including:
Fine lines and wrinkles: The micro-injuries created by the needles stimulate collagen and elastin production, which can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Acne scars: Microneedling can help break down scar tissue and promote the growth of new, healthy tissue.
Uneven skin tone: The procedure can help even out skin tone by stimulating melanin production and reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation.
Large pores: Microneedling can help reduce the appearance of large pores by stimulating collagen production and tightening the skin.
Stretch marks: Microneedling can help reduce the appearance of stretch marks by stimulating collagen and elastin production and promoting the growth of new tissue.
Hair follicle stimulation: Microneedling helps to rejuvenate dormant hair follicles, and can help with conditions like alopecia and thinning of hair.
Here is what you can generally expect during a facial microneedling procedure:
Preparation: Your skin will be cleansed, and a numbing cream may be applied to reduce discomfort during the procedure.
Microneedling: The microneedling device will be passed over your skin, creating tiny puncture wounds. The depth of the needles will depend on your skin type and the areas being treated.
Topical Treatment: After the microneedling, a serum or other topical treatment will be applied to your skin to enhance the results and promote healing.
Recovery: Your skin may be red and sensitive for a day or two after the procedure. You should avoid sun exposure and apply a physical sunscreen during the healing process.
Overall, microneedling is a relatively quick and safe procedure that can improve the appearance of your skin with minimal downtime.
