The loss of collagen is one of the primary reasons for most signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Collagen is the glue that binds your skin tissues together, so its gradual loss due to age can be devastating. The Royal Medspa provides highly-personalized microneedling in Nebraska City using the cutting-edge Rejuvapen device to stimulate natural collagen production, effectively reversing the signs of aging on your face.
What is microneedling?
Microneedling is one of the world’s most effective non-invasive skin rejuvenation techniques. This treatment involves creating thousands of micro-channels on the skin’s surface using a specialized device. Even though the micro-channels don’t damage your skin, your body responds to them as injuries, thereby boosting its natural healing response, such as collagen production and cellular regeneration. The results are smoother, firmer, and more even-textured skin with minimal fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity.
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Skin laxity and sagging skin
- Loss of volume in the cheeks
- Hollows under the eyes
- Dark circles and tear troughs
- Facial creases, such as nasolabial folds
- Facial scars, such as acne scars
- Pigmentation problems
- Textural irregularities
- Uneven skin tone
How does microneedling work?
Microneedling is a collagen induction therapy that stimulates your body’s natural collagen production capabilities. Collagen is a fibrous protein that’s abundantly available in the human skin when you’re young, but your body’s ability to produce this protein decreases with age. This fibrous protein holds your skin upright against gravity, making your skin look firm, taut, and youthful. The loss of collagen is the primary reason for the onset of wrinkles, sagging skin, and other signs of aging.
During your microneedling in Nebraska City, we use the cutting-edge Rejuvapen microneedling device to create thousands of micro-channels on the skin’s surface. The Rejuvapen device allows us to calibrate the depth of the microneedles according to your unique skin type. Your body registers these micro-channels as injuries and activates collagen production and skin cell regeneration. Over time, your body replaces the damaged skin cells with new skin cells, and collagen production leads to firm, taut, and youthful skin.
Catalyze the microneedling
results with PRP
One of the greatest benefits of microneedling is that it’s compatible with PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy and other topical serums. After microneedling, your skin is extremely receptive to topical products, allowing us to maximize the benefits of PRP therapy. Your provider will draw a small sample of your blood from your arm, place it in a centrifuge to isolate the PRPs, and apply the PRP solution to your skin after microneedling.
Platelet-rich plasmas are special components within your blood with a high concentration of growth factors. Whenever you’re injured, the growth factors in your blood accelerate the body’s healing processes, such as clotting, skin cell turnover, and collagen production. When applied to your face after microneedling, the platelet-rich plasmas focus their natural healing properties on your skin, thus catalyzing the results of microneedling. You essentially boost the effect, experiencing superior results in less time from your microneedling in Nebraska City.
The benefits of microneedling:
- Non-surgical and non-invasive treatment
- Performed under topical anesthesia for comfort
- No harsh side effects or complications
- Stimulates natural collagen production
- Results can be boosted with PRP therapy
- Customized according to your skin type
- No downtime or recovery period
- Improves overall skin quality and texture
What is the microneedling process?
The microneedling process is fairly simple. Your provider examines your facial skin and discusses your goals to curate a personalized microneedling treatment plan. The Rejuvapen device is calibrated according to your skin type and concerns, ensuring safe and optimal results. A numbing gel is applied to your skin for comfort. The microneedling device is moved across your skin to create micro-channels and stimulate collagen production, following which a soothing gel is applied to minimize post-treatment discomfort.
How is PRP combined with microneedling?
Microneedling is highly compatible with PRP treatment. If you want to combine microneedling with PRP, your provider will draw a small sample of your blood from your arm via a syringe. Your blood will be placed in a centrifuge to isolate the platelet-rich plasma from other components — it will rise to the top of the vial as a golden-colored liquid. After microneedling, the PRP serum will be applied to your face as a facial.
You may experience mild redness, swelling, irritation, and bruising around the treatment site for a few days after your microneedling in Nebraska City. The side effects are mild and temporary, so you can resume your daily activities and work immediately, but you should avoid direct sunlight, tanning, hot water, and strenuous workouts for a few days.
When will I see the
results of microneedling?
The results of microneedling gradually appear over several weeks as your body produces new collagen fibers. You can catalyze the results by combining microneedling with platelet-rich plasma. Most patients need a series of three to six microneedling sessions for optimal results. Your provider will curate the optimal microneedling treatment plan for you.
