DermaPen Micro Needling
At Impressions MediSpa with offices in Fairfax, VA we offer DermaPen micro needling to help rejuvenate your complexion by resurfacing the skin with ultra fine needles, which create microscopic wounds. The wounds in turn produce more collagen which helps improve the skin texture, minimizes signs of aging, treats acne scars and restores a rejuvenated appearance.
At Impressions we use DermaPen micro needling on all skin types in a gentle manner to improve:
- Correct uneven skin tone
- Minimize large pores
- Improve the appearance of acne scars
- Improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
- Stimulates new collagen
- Encourage your skin to replenish itself naturally
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING MY MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT?
Our Aesthetic Nurse will be administering comfortable micro needling treatments. To begin, we will apply a topical anesthetic to ensure your total comfort. We will then use a series of tiny needles to gently puncture the skin in the area being treated, stimulating your body’s natural healing response and encouraging your skin to produce more collagen. From there, we will apply vital nutrients like Vitamin-C and hyaluronic acid to nourish, heal and hydrate your skin.
After your micro needling procedure, there is no downtime and you will be free to resume your normal daily routine. However, you will be advised to stay out of the sun and avoid retinoids to protect your skin and ensure an optimal outcome.
AM I A CANDIDATE FOR MICRONEEDLING?
At Impressions Medi Spa we are committed to personalized care, and we only administer treatment if it’s truly in the client’s best interest. As such, we determine candidacy for all of our procedures on an individual basis, following a thorough discussion of your cosmetic goals, concerns and desires.
Since micro needling is such a gentle procedure, most people are considered candidates if they want to achieve healthy and radiant skin without undergoing a more invasive or aggressive procedure.
PLATLET RICH PLASMA WITH MICRONEEDLING:
At Impressions some candidates can combine Microneedling with Platlet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections. First, a numbing cream is applied for 30 to 40 minutes, then Microneedling is completed on the area.
The patient's blood is drawn and spun in a specialized centrifuge, drawing off the layer of PRP. The Platet Rich Plasma (PRP) is then injected in the areas of the face which helps with rejuvunating the skin and giving it a healthy glow. By using your own PRP, you can the benefit from growth factors and stem cell which in turn helps stiumlate collagen production. This will help improve skin texture and tone, minimize pore size, acne scars and wrinkles. PRP does not have neuromodulating results such as Botox or Dysport, so it doesn't relax muscles, it is primarily used for giving the skin a healthy glow and collagen production.
