smoother, firmer, and more youthful
Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that refreshes and resurfaces your skin. It is primarily used on the face and decollete. However, microneedling may be done on other areas of the body in some cases. Microneedling involves creating tiny microchannels in the skin with tiny sterilized needles.
The needles create small wounds that trigger a healing process by stimulating your body to produce more collagen and elastin, whose levels naturally decline with age. Microneedling is also called collagen induction therapy, as it stimulates your body’s collagen response. As your skin heals, it becomes smoother, firmer, and more youthful. Allume Med Spa in Petaluma, CA, proudly offers microneedling among its comprehensive array of cosmetic treatments and procedures. Allume has earned a reputation as the premier cosmetic medicine practice in the Bay Area. The staff at Allume warmly invite you to schedule a consultation to learn about the benefits of microneedling.
Microneedling with HA
Microneedling creates millions of tiny channels in the skin, allowing it to absorb rejuvenation nutrients such as hyaluronic acid and PRF (platelet-rich fibrin). During your Petaluma microneedling treatment at Allume, hyaluronic acid, also known as hyaluronan, will be applied to your skin. Hyaluronic acid is a clear, gooey substance that is naturally produced by your body.
Roughly half of the hyaluronic acid in your body is present in your skin, where it binds to water to help retain moisture. However, the natural aging process and exposure to things like ultraviolet radiation from the sun, smoke, and pollution can decrease its amounts in the skin. When paired with micro-needling, the repair process begins almost immediately, resulting in softened wrinkles and scars, as well as a thicker dermis.
Microneedling with PRF, or the Vampire Facial, has become famous among celebs in Hollywood and New York as THE go-to treatment for fresh skin and skin rejuvenation.
Celebs such as Jennifer Anniston, Angelina Jolie, Keira Maguire, Kim Kardashian, and influencers all over the globe have touted the amazing results. PRF is Platelet Rich Fibrin, a technology that activates your body's own natural healing proteins to "turbo-charge" restoration of vibrant, glowing skin! PRF is derived from a simple blood draw, hence the jocular nickname, "Vampire Facial." Adding this powerful bio-serum to your microneedling treatment boosts your skin's ability to heal itself from within.
Microneedling also aids in treating:
the ideal option for you
Microneedling can treat all skin types. You may be an ideal candidate if you have skin concerns that have not responded to other treatments. Microneedling is not recommended for patients who are pregnant or who have chronic skin diseases such as psoriasis or eczema. If you have recently had radiation therapy, you may not be qualified at this time. During consultation for microneedling Petaluma patients of Allume will be carefully assessed. All aspects of your concerns and needs will be gone over to determine if microneedling is an ideal option for you.
Microneedling is an outpatient, in-office procedure. When you arrive for your Petaluma microneedling appointment, you will have a numbing cream smoothed onto your face for your comfort. Your provider will use a Dermapen handpiece for optimal accuracy and precision. Total prep and treatment time is less than two hours, with the microneedling application itself generally taking about 20 minutes. To optimize results and benefits, most people need 3-6 microneedling treatment sessions.
You can go home right after your microneedling procedure. Most people require little or no “downtime.” Slight irritation and redness, similar to a sunburn, may persist for a few days.
Your skin will be more sensitive to the sun, so daily use of a high-SPF sunscreen is a must. (That’s always a good idea, anyway!) Smoking or excessive alcohol consumption can lessen the effectiveness of your microneedling treatment. Your provider will give you detailed aftercare instructions and products to maximize your results.
Most patients need 4-6 microneedling treatments, separated between sessions by at least a month.
You’ll notice significant improvement after your second treatment, but it will likely take 90 days or so following your final session to realize your dazzling ultimate results! The longevity of results will vary between each patient. While benefits are generally long-lasting, maintenance treatments are recommended every 12 to 18 months for a continuously radiant complexion.
