Professional Microneedling in Lawrence

 

Get Your Glow On With Professional Microneedling in Lawrence At AesthetiCare

You may have recently become frustrated with dull or lackluster skin that isn’t as supple, lifted, or healthy-looking as it once was.

If you are seeking a nonsurgical, minimally-invasive way to address your concerns and gain more confidence in your skin, the experienced team at AesthetiCare may be able to help with professional microneedling in Lawrence.

What Are The Benefits of Professional Microneedling in Lawrence?

Our microneedling device has 9 microscopic needles in its tip that evenly create hundreds of micro-channels in the skin, creating a controlled injury to the skin’s structure.  This triggers the body’s natural healing response, which in turn stimulates and creates new collagen growth.

Opting for professional microneedling in Lawrence to treat your skin concerns is a great option because it requires much less recovery time than more invasive treatments with lasers. It also is safe and effective for any skin type. After your initial series of microneedling treatments, your skin will appear tighter, brighter, and much more healthy.

How to know if professional microneedling in Lawrence is right for you

Microneedling is considered safe and beneficial for all skin types, though it is important to note that results are not instant. We recommend a series of treatments, typically 3-4, in order to fully address your concerns and maximize your results, with maintenance treatments yearly as well

Acne scars, uneven skin tone & texture, stretch marks, sun damage, and fine lines and wrinkles can be frustrating and difficult, if not impossible, to treat on your own. If you are struggling with these skin concerns, microneedling may be the treatment you have been looking for.

Consider waiting or alternative treatments if…

Microneedling may not be ideal for everyone all the time. If you are currently experiencing active acne, have open wounds, have psoriasis or eczema, or have recently had any radiation therapy, you may want to consider discussing what other options there are for you at AesthetiCare of Lawrence instead of microneedling, as there are many! Those conditions above can be aggravated with microneedling. We will devise a customized plan just for you!

Microneedling is also not recommended for pregnant women or those who have trouble healing.

Do at-home microneedle rollers produce the same results as microneedling in Lawrence?

Not even close.

While at-home microneedle rollers are sometimes used to enhance the effects of your topical serums and moisturizers, they cannot come close to matching the numerous benefits of professional microneedling.

Our equipment uses perfectly spaced microneedles that penetrate the skin deeper and more evenly. Professional microneedling performed by a trained, certified skincare provider is a much more aggressive yet very safe (and therefore more effective) microneedling treatment. Additionally, performing an abrasive treatment like this at home, rather than in a sterile clinical environment, greatly increases your chance for infection or scarring.  At home microneedling devices are commonly over and/or misused, creating the opposite effect on the skin that can cause greater damage than good.

According to the American Academy of Dermatologists, you may be able to, at best, achieve a brighter complexion with these devices. However, do not expect to use one of these at-home rollers to stimulate collagen production or treat any lines or wrinkles like you would with microneedling in Lawrence at AesthetiCare.

What happens during a microneedling treatment?

Consultation

All AesthetiCare Lawrence clients first receive a consultation and skin analysis from one of our experienced aestheticians to evaluate their unique skin type and features, and to discuss their desires and goals for microneedling. From there, we will walk you through the procedure(s) and treatment plan we recommend and can address any of your remaining concerns.

Prepping the treatment area

To begin the microneedling procedure, we will apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area for about 30 minutes to minimize any discomfort you may experience and keep you comfortable throughout the treatment

Microneedling

Using the latest microneedling technology, we go to work evenly treating your skin. The whole session lasts about 30 minutes, during which you will feel some pressure, warmth, and tingling in the treated area that most clients tolerate very well.

What happens afterwards

There is no required downtime with microneedling, and you are free to return to your regular activities after your treatment. However, we do recommend that you keep the treated skin very clean and unwashed until the following day. We also recommend taking the evening off from social activities and refraining from makeup or skincare treatments for 24 hours post-treatment.

Does microneedling hurt?

Thanks to the topical numbing cream we apply before the treatment, most discomfort will be minimized. Following the microneedling procedure, your skin may be red and inflamed with some pinpoint bleeding. Clients report their skin feels as though they had a mild to moderate sunburn for 3 to 24 hours after the microneedling is performed.

When will results of microneedling be seen?

Most clients achieve their desired results 3-4 months after the last treatment of their series of 3 to 4 microneedling treatments.  This is because collagen takes time to rejuvenate and rebuild. However, most clients do see a noticeable change in improved tone and texture after just one or two treatments.  Results are cumulative and vary from person to person based on their skin concerns and condition of their skin.

After your initial treatments to achieve the results you desire, we recommend having a maintenance treatment every 4 – 6  months to ensure the results of your microneedling treatment are sustained.

To improve your results of microneedling  you can combine this treatment with other treatments at AesthetiCare of Lawrence

AesthetiCare offers numerous skin resurfacing and rejuvenation treatments, many of which can be complemented by microneedling in Lawrence.

To get the most out of your microneedling and injectable treatments, and to achieve a dramatically younger appearance, consider having BOTOX® or Dysport® injections 2 to 4 weeks before your microneedling treatment to relax overactive muscles and treat dynamic wrinkles.

Then, follow up your microneedling treatments with dermal fillers to replace lost volume in the face and to further reduce deeper wrinkles.

If you have extensive sun damage or pigmentation you’d like to address, we can pair your microneedling treatments with broad band light (BBL) treatments like Forever Young BBL. This revolutionary procedure delivers light energy deep into the skin to more completely address brown spots and correct sun damage.

Finally, treat your beautiful new skin to a HydraFacial MD™, or one of our other customizable facials the week after your microneedling treatment to brighten the complexion, promote healthy skin, and combat exposure to environmental pollutants. Microneedling results can be further maintained with routine monthly facials at AesthetiCare.

When you visit AesthetiCare Lawrence for your consultation, we’ll review all of these suggestions and more to help you maximize the results of microneedling.
