How partnering the two most popular skincare treatments today can lead to faster, more effective, and enhanced results!
The combination of both the IPL Face Treatment and microneedling is considered safe and effective. Some clients can experience swelling, discomfort at the treatment site, redness, bruising and tightness, however, these side effects typically dissipate quickly, within a few days to a week.
After a thorough skin consultation, we might recommend combining microneedling and a chemical peel to slough away dry, dead skin cells and stimulate fresh collagen production to enhance the appearance of your skin.
Microneedling is a better option then HydraFacial if you have deep, permanent acne scars and other facial scarring and conditions listed earlier. It is great if you want to replace elasticity and firm your skin.
Cosmetic procedures, such as botox, other laser beauty treatments and chemicals, should be avoided for two weeks before microneedling. These procedures temporarily make the skin more sensitive and more prone to irritation. This time frame provides your skin adequate time to recover between treatments.
Most clinicians will recommend to wait at least 3 weeks after receiving filler to receive a microneedling treatment.
The easy answer is that you can have HydraFacial CT treatments about once a month, or once every 4 weeks. This is the general frequency that is most compatible for most people and that can generate the best skin-boosting benefits.
As a general rule of thumb, microneedling treatment can be safely done about once a month or every 4 to 6 weeks.
How often should you get a hydrafacial? We strongly recommend that you come in for a HydraFacial solutions every two weeks. During your initial consultation, we will assess your skin type and skin quality as well as review your personal aesthetic goals.
Discoloration caused by skin needling is rare, but can occur if the needle depth is 1.5 mm or deeper, and the procedure is done too frequently. This negligence can cause irritation in the skin which can be one possible cause to post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation.
Chemical peels generally work best on superficial imperfections; conversely, microneedling penetrates deeper to improve more troublesome issues. Many people with wrinkles find a combination of microneedling and chemical peels deliver the best results.
Hyaluronic acid serums are the best and most commonly used type for microneedling because of their hydrating properties. Other great alternatives include peptides, ceramides, and EGF. Just make sure to avoid retinoids, Vitamin C, and other serums that contain acids (AHA, BHA, and lactic acid).
Dermaplaning before Micro-needling allows for topical products to penetrate significantly deeper into the skin layers, allowing the patient to achieve the most desirable outcome.
While you can opt for a microneedling treatment after dermaplaning, you should not consider dermaplaning after a microneedling treatment. This is because microneedling requires more downtime, as well as rest for your skin.
Fine Lines and Loose Skin
This happens because our bodies produce less collagen over time, taking away our skin's structure. This is most noticeable in sagging skin, but it's the reason behind wrinkles and uneven skin texture too.
Micro-needling can be safely repeated every 2-4 weeks until you achieve the desired results. For collagen induction, we recommend starting with 3 treatments, but with a minimum separation time of 2 weeks between treatments. For scar reduction, an average of 6 treatments are recommended.
It is a good idea to start this type of treatment in your 20's or 30's so that the boost in collagen production is more significant. This is going to train the skin to produce collagen regularly and keep your skin looking younger longer.
For the best and most lasting results, we recommend patients get a series of 4 to 6 HydraFacials and space them 2 to 4 weeks apart.
Yes we recommend that you discontinue retinol and related products 3 days before your Hydrafacial. You should also avoid any glycolic or other home-based peel for the same amount of time. If you are using these products please speak with our staff for specific guidance several days before your Hydrafacial.
It is a classic, exfoliation-only procedure that treats as deep as a chemical peel without the same potential for sensitivities and irritation. HydraFacial is a more advanced, more gentle and more effective next generation of microdermabrasion.
Vitamin C pairs wonderfully with nano-needling though, so definitely try to include this ingredient into your routine without any risk of irritation.
Microneedling can be an effective treatment option for fine lines, under-eye bags, puffiness, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and even stretch marks. The versatility of a microneedling treatment is what makes it beneficial for patients with varying skin tones and skin types.
Avoid saunas, steam rooms and hot baths or showers until the redness is gone. -Avoid waxing and any other skin care treatment for two weeks following the treatment. -After 2-3 days you can return to regular skin care products or as soon as it is comfortable to do so.
