Mico-Needling

Mico-Needling at Neu Look Med Spa

Micro-Needling, is a treatment that we use at Neu Look Med Spa to rejuvenate the skin. The “Vampire Facial” uses the same concept but the difference is that they draw your blood, spin the plasma in a machine and then place it back on to your skin. With Micro-Needling, we use microscopic needles to create mild bleeding during the treatment, then we will massage the blood back to your skin (because your pores are already open from the light abrasions). Micro-Needling is a mildly invasive skin rejuvenation procedure which causes the body to create new collagen and elastin. We glide the pen over the skin with a peptide solution full of nutrients. This will help the skin regain tightness, firmness, reduce scaring, correct large pore size and even stretch marks. Results are typically best seen in a series of treatments; such as 3-6.

Producing The Change We Want to See

Many patients who suffer from acne and acne scaring turn to facials to correct the problem. Although we do not offer facials at Neu Look Med Spa, we know they are a wonderfully relaxing and rejuvenating for the face and mind. On a medical level they are usually not strong enough to kill the bacteria that cause acne and boost enough collagen to see any major changes in scaring. We are encouraging our patients to try this more invasive treatment that we know will produce the change we want to see. We at Neu Look do not prefer to perform this service on active breakout that is on a large scale due to the spreading of bacteria but we always prescribe product or a chemical peel  (Vitalize or Rejuvinize peels) to prep you for the service. Micro-Needling also helps your skin to absorb product directly into the treated area which will help the overall appearance and health of your skin.

How Micro-Needling Helps

Micro-Needling can help to reduce and prevent premature aging. Another lesser known effect of this procedure is it helping with the reduced appearance of stretch marks. It may not completely remove the scar but it can make it shallower and less dark in color. More sessions are usually required but it has been recorded that people have seen good results over time, even with deeper set ones. At Neu Look we have Non-Ablative Fractional (ICON) technology which treats the stretch marks (if less than 6mm in width). Multiple treatments are needed for the best result and they all have minimum downtime.

Most hyperpigmentation is caused by over exposure to the sun, damage to the epidermis, inflammation or trauma. Sun damage and age spots are a stubborn issue to correct but studies have proven that Micro-Needling can help to lessen the pigment by generating new, healthy melanin evenly over the skin. This treatment prepares the skin to absorb the right medication for brightening and lightening of the skin. This treatment is even effective on patients who have darker skin tones. Some lasers can cause hyperpigmentation rather than correcting it if used incorrectly (the dark skin needs to be prepared by the lightening agents before laser treatments). In summary the rule of Micro-Needling applies to correcting wrinkles and fine lines, large pores and creates a smoother texture.

Professional Facials

Let’s face it! Appearance is important to all of us. It’s OK to enjoy visual stimulation, and there is definitely nothing wrong with wanting to be eye candy for everyone else. Knowing that you look good by receiving compliments and attention delivers a healthy emotion of happiness you deserve. You’re already beautiful, and beauty requires maintenance and care. Why not pamper yourself and have a caring professional esthetician help keep your beautiful skin healthy and radiant?

Below is a quick read of the steps taken to perform a professional facial treatment at Neu Look Med Spa & Skin Center. We believe in educating our patients in order to maximize the benefits of overall skincare and maintain a healthy youthful appearance. The experience and the results speak for themselves.

Cleanse

If you have sensitive skin, be assured it will be treated gently. For the most part, a foaming cleanser is applied to kick start the facial treatment.

Exfoliation

Keeping your pores clear of any build up, including dead skin cells is a key role in obtaining healthy skin. When you receive your facial at Neu Look Med Spa, it is recommended you exfoliate two to three times per week post treatment with SkinMedica’s Polisher Cleanse, a lightweight exfoliator just enough to maintain the rotation of your healthy new skin flattering.

  • Round soft jojoba spheres gently exfoliate without scratching or irritating the skin
  • Fragrance-free cream formulation
  • Can be used in combination with any SkinMedica cleanser

Steam

During the cleanse and exfoliation process, steam is applied on the treated area to soften the pores and prepare the skin for extraction.

Extraction

Here is the fun part! Blackheads and pustuals are removed allowing your pores to breathe.

Massage

A delightful upper body [shoulders, neck, face and scalp] massage adds to the flavor of your treatment by promoting circulation and relaxation.

Mask

Depending on the needs of your skin, a mask is applied to hydrate [very beneficial for aging], clarify for acne, and sooth for sensitive skin. SkinCeuticals covers all three skin needs with Clarifying Clay Masque. For the removal, you will enjoy a nice steamed towel.

  • 5% hydroxy acid blend gently exfoliates dead skin cells
  • Natural earth clays, kaolin and bentonite, decongest pores, lift impurities, and help remove excess oils
  • Aloe provides anti-inflammatory properties
  • Chamomile calms and soothes the skin

Serum

A few optional serums are provided and applied to end the treatment. A couple of them come highly recommended, also by SkinCeuticals, C E Ferulic [a combination of antioxidant vitamins C+E with ferulic acid to maximize antioxidant performance] and Hydrating B5 Gel [enriched with vitamin B5 to help maximize the benefits of your daily moisturizer].* The appropriate serum is used based on your skin needs.
