The surface of your skin is the part of you visible to the outside world. Keeping it looking great helps you feel confident, energized, and ready to tackle life.
Skin resurfacing is a general term describing various procedures that improve the look of your skin. Chemical peels are one type of resurfacing, and dermaplaning is another. Some people choose laser resurfacing.
All of the treatments involve removing the outer layer of the skin to allow a new layer to grow in its place. The new skin is firmer, with fewer scars, lines, or areas of hyperpigmentation. We use INTRAcel technology as our primary skin resurfacing method.
Benefits of Skin Resurfacing
A gentle microneedling procedure. Its combination of traditional microneedling and radio frequency thermal energy delivery allows the device to penetrate the skin deeply enough to stimulate maximum collagen production.
It is collagen, a protein found in connective tissue, that gives young skin fullness and firmness. When collagen production is stimulated using Andes technology, it results in softer, smoother, firmer skin.
Unlike laser skin resurfacing, U Wellness Medspa microneedling is very gentle and unlikely to damage the surrounding tissue. It can be used not only on the face but also on skin conditions elsewhere on the body, including stretch marks and sun damage. As a targeted treatment, it can be used to treat large or small areas.
Candidates for Skin Resurfacing
Microneedling is gentle enough to be used on nearly every skin type. Good candidates include those with fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone or texture, sun damage, rosacea, acne scarring, or age spots. It can be used on the delicate tissue in the eye area.
Our team will evaluate your skin to be certain that you are a good candidate before making any treatment recommendations.
We use a topical numbing cream for treatments with microneedling. The procedure is short and relatively painless. Most people experience only some warmth and redness following their procedure and make-up can be worn after 24 hours. There is little to no downtime involved.
Microneedling technology works best if done in several sessions with a four to six week break in between. You’ll start to see some improvement right away, and that improvement will continue for up to six months as your body continues to produce collagen.
Microneedling is an innovative, minimally invasive skin resurfacing method that produces excellent, long-lasting results.
