What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive aesthetic treatment that benefits many beauty concerns by stimulating collagen production. During the beauty treatment, Elite Rejuvenations uses the Rejuvapen NXT, which creates tiny holes in the surface layer of your skin without causing any damage or scarring. However, the Rejuvapen NXT causes a controlled injury that stimulates the production of collagen.

Collagen is a structural protein found in the dermal layer of your skin that provides strength, support, and elasticity. As you get older, your skin produces less collagen, which is one of the many factors that contribute to the visible signs of aging. 

What does microneedling treat?

Elite Rejuvenations offers microneedling to address many common beauty concerns. You may consider contacting the aesthetic medical spa to discuss how microneedling can improve your:

Microneedling and PRP Facials

Microneedling creates micro-injuries to stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing process while minimizing cellular damage. This results in an effective remodel of scar tissue while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact. Microneedling is clinically shown to safely and effectively treat facial acne scars through as few as 3 affordable and non-invasive treatments 30 days apart. PRP facials use your own blood that is drawn then spun to separate the plasma from red and white blood cells. After the plasma is separated, the PRP can be applied topically or through injections. Platelets, which come from the PRP, are a type of blood cell that migrates to the location of an injury and assists in healing through the release of various growth factors and other proteins, which aid in healing. Come see us if you are wanting to improve your skin and speed up the healing process.

Microneedling also reduces the appearance of stretch marks. 

What happens during microneedling?

The specifics of your microneedling may depend on your personal beauty goals and skin needs. Elite Rejuvenations reviews the details of your microneedling at your consultation so you know what to expect.

Before starting treatment, your aesthetic specialist first cleanses your skin with an antibacterial agent and applies a numbing cream to reduce discomfort during your session. Then, your specialist uses the Rejuvapen NXT to stimulate collagen production.

Your skin may be red after your microneedling, but downtime isn’t necessary. Your skin heals quickly, and you should notice improvements within a few days. However, to get the best results, you may benefit from a series of treatments.  

What happens during microneedling?

To rejuvenate your skin and your look, Elite Rejuvenations combines microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP). PRP is a form of regenerative medicine that contains a high concentration of the platelets and growth factors found in your own blood. 

During your microneedling and PRP treatment, Elite Rejuvenations applies the PRP to the surface of your skin and then uses the Rejuvapen NXT to drive the healing properties into the tiny holes to accelerate the healing process and improve the overall outcomes of your beauty treatment.

Elite Rejuvenations also offers microneedling with exosomes, which are specialized compounds released by your stem cells that contain the genetic coding and information needed to heal damaged tissue. As with PRP, adding exosomes to your microneedling accelerates the healing process and maximizes the benefits.
