Your skin protects you from various invaders, but this protection takes its toll. Wear-and-tear, sun damage, stress, bad habits, and other factors make your skin appear dull, damaged, and aged.
Nicole Casavant, PA-C, and her team at South Lake Medical Spa in Clermont, Florida, have the perfect solution to combat aging without invasive surgery or other cumbersome procedures. Microneedling can help produce and maintain the youthful skin you desire with minimal downtime or side effects.
What is microneedling?
Microneedling is an aesthetic treatment that uses tiny needles to pierce the skin, triggering your body’s natural healing mechanisms. It’s considered minimally invasive because the tiny punctures are so small they don’t draw blood. The wounds are just enough to cause your body to produce healing elements for repairs.
South Lake Medical Spa uses the Morpheus8® microneedling system by InMode®, which incorporates radiofrequency (RF) energy into treatments. The combination of microneedling and RF energy jumpstarts the production of elastin and collagen in your skin to repair the micro-wounds. This creates a new layer of fresh, younger-looking skin.
While you may notice a difference in your skin after just a single microneedling treatment with Morpheus8, we normally recommend a series of treatments to deliver the results you desire, depending on the skin issues you face.
Here are five specific skin flaws we can help erase with microneedling.
Aged, wrinkled skin is the primary reason many clients come to us for microneedling. This procedure helps to erase wrinkled older, worn skin and replace it with new, collagen-rich skin that’s smoother and looks younger.
Also known as hyperpigmentation, age spots are simply darker spots that result from sun damage. Microneedling with RF energy through Morpheus8 reduces the appearance of these spots by introducing new skin that’s richer with elastin and collagen.
The sun’s UV rays take a toll on your skin over time. Spots, wrinkles, and imperfections reveal your age. Microneedling replaces this weathered skin with new, vital skin that looks years younger and much more vibrant.
Acne often leaves scars, and in the most visible places. Sometimes this scarring can be quite evident and embarrassing. Microneedling with RF energy helps to erase acne scars, replacing this damaged skin with new, smoother skin.
Stretch marks are a common result of pregnancy or rapid weight gain or loss, when the skin stretches too quickly. The evidence is red marks from where the skin has been stretched and damaged. Microneedling can erase these marks through replacing the damaged skin with new, more flexible skin that is richer in collagen and elastin.
Get new skin with microneedling
Microneedling with RF energy through Morpheus8 can produce some immediate results, but your skin takes some time to repair itself naturally and it can take up to six weeks for the full effects to become visible. Most clients need more than one treatment to gain the results they desire.
