Micro needling is a method of inducing a controlled injury into the skins dermal and epidermal junction which induces growth factors, new collagen and elastin. At Renew Me Medspa we use The Collagen PINN device for your micro needling needs. This process causes much less damage to the epidermis than dermal rolling, lasers or any other ablative treatment. Thus, protecting the skin’s cell growth making for quicker healing and higher rates of success.
Who can be treated and on what areas of the body?
Micro needling can safely treat all skin types to address a variety of concerns. Most all areas of the body can be treated unless your medical provider determines otherwise.
• Face * Arm
• Neck * Legs
• Hands * Abdomen
How many treatments will I need?
Typically, a series of 3-6 treatments is recommended. Depending upon your area of correction or concern. Your skin professional will ultimately determine a treatment schedule based on your individual goals and desires. Treatments are usually spaced out in 4-week intervals. Patients with deep wrinkles, advanced sun damage, and any type of scars usually require 6 or more treatments to achieve the desired results.
How long will my results last?
Micro needling results through the stimulation of growth factors and collagen, thereby, promoting new skin cells to surface. As our skin ages and our collagen production naturally slows down. Your overall skin results will last longer when using a at home skin care regimen. New Collagen and elastin formation has been documented to still be presented as much as one year later from just a single treatment.
How long will it take for me to see results?
Most commonly, patients report seeing positive changes as soon as 1-2 weeks after the first treatment.
