What is a microneedling facial?
The experienced aesthetics team at PureLee Redefined uses the FDA-cleared SkinPen® for microneedling and skin rejuvenation. SkinPen is the first microneedling device cleared by the FDA, clinically proven to safely treat acne scars and stimulate collagen and elastin formation.
The SkinPen® is a pen-shaped device that activates your skin’s innate healing abilities by making tiny micro punctures that cause new collagen, elastin, and blood vessels to form.
What are the benefits of a microneedling facial?
When receiving a microneedling facial at PureLee Redefined in Colorado Springs, you’ll notice the following anti-aging benefits:
- Fewer fine lines and wrinkles
- Improved skin tone and texture
- Smoother, more radiant skin
- Skin tightening
- Pore size reduction
- Reduced stretch marks and scars
Microneedling is minimally invasive with no downtime but can produce dramatic anti-aging results. It minimizes cellular damage and remodels scar tissue but keeps your surrounding skin structure intact.
What should I expect during a microneedling facial?
After reviewing your medical history and examining your skin, your aesthetics physician lets you know if you’re a good candidate for microneedling. They use a topical anesthetic to make the procedure feel comfortable. The three-phase, wound-repair microneedling process includes:
- Inflammation: Your provider pierces your skin with the SkinPen, triggering your immune system to increase blood flow.
- Proliferation: Wounds in your skin enhance new cell growth, including a network of blood vessels.
- Remodeling: Microneedling wounds get replaced with newer, younger-looking dermal tissues.
The aesthetics providers at PureLee Redefined have the experience and expertise necessary to perfect your microneedling results and make you look years younger. They spend as much time as you need to answer questions and make you feel comfortable during the procedure. They also enhance microneedling by coupling it with PRP or stem cell solutions to expedite healing and optimize results. Your provider may perform a venipuncture and centrifuge the blood to harness platelet rich plasma (PRP). PRP will be applied to the treatment area immediately following microneedling.
What happens after microneedling?
Your doctor will likely recommend a series of three microneedling facial treatments spaced 30 days apart to optimize results. Because there’s no downtime, you can resume normal everyday activities right away, but you might experience some redness and swelling. This is usually much improved in less than 24 hours. Products to prevent drying of the skin and facilitate healing will be provided for home use.
Use an ice pack as needed to enhance comfort after the procedure and protect your skin from the sun. You might be able to wear makeup the next day. About 90% of patients who experience microneedling with SkinPen® would recommend the procedure to friends and family.
