What is Micro-Needling?

smithfield micro-needlingWant to tighten up your skin? Reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines? Then you need to consider Smithfield medical spa has the perfect solution for you! At Evolve Medical Spa, we offer a skin rejuvenating procedure called micro-needling to firm up and refresh your skin.

Micro-needling uses the Rejuvepen to stimulate the collagen and elastin in your skin. The procedure uses 12 small needles to break down old scar tissue and stimulate new cells. Cell regeneration is activated during treatment, which helps to absorb the product into the skin.

Benefits of Micro-Needling

Micro-needling reduces fine lines and wrinkles, lifts, tightens, and gives your skin an all over younger, rejuvenated look. Pores are also minimized, preventing them from getting clogged (which is what causes breakouts). Your skin will look plump, luxurious, and refreshed due to the stimulation of new collagen and elastin. Micro-needling can also improve the appearance of stretch marks, and scars.

What Areas Can Be Treated?

Micro-needling can be performed on the face, neck, décolletage, and/or hands. Some people choose to combine micro-needling with other skin care treatments such as Laser RF or microdermabrasion.

What to Expect After a Micro-Needling Treatment

The micro-needling procedure doesn’t require any real recovery time. Most patients will experience some mild swelling and/or redness, similar to a sunburn. Those symptoms will usually go down within 24-48 hours. Patients often see the full effect of micro-needling after a few months, but will notice smoother, glowing skin after a week or two.

In order to protect your skin and results, it is recommended that patients use a zinc-based sunblock. Patients should also moisturize their skin daily to keep it hydrated and looking fresh. The use of mineral make-up is also recommended after the procedure to keep your skin refreshed and luxurious.
