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.

Vitalize Peel vs. Rejuvenize Peel

Vitalize Peel vs. Rejuvenize Peel

Chemical Peels at Neu Look Med Spa

Chemical peels (used at Neu Look Med Spa) are prescribed for many reasons. At Neu Look they can be used for all skin types and all ages after 18. The peels penetrate to a safe but deeper layer than microdermabrasion, other mechanical exfoliations or scrubs. Peels help to rebuild collagen we have lost over time and boost our cell turnover rate. The natural cell turnover rate for the average adult is 30 to 90 days and it is every other day for a baby or small child. That is why the skin heals so much more quickly when having an abrasion when we are children. The face feels and looks better only a few days after having a peel, leaving your face with a better skin tone, improved texture and overall, a radiant glow. Chemical peels are also used for correcting adolescent and adult acne by destroying the bacteria in the skin and drying up any active breakout. Receiving routine chemical peels can help to slow the signs of aging, and in some cases, reverse some of the present signs of aging.

The Vitalize Peel by Skin Medica

The Vitalize Peel by Skin Medica has a mixture of Lactic and Salicylic Acid and then it is layered under a Retinol complex – which is optional. Just because it is called a “chemical peel” does not mean you always physically peel. Some patients do not want to peel due to work or other obligations so leaving the Retinol layer out can help to prevent you physically shedding dead skin. Instead, the peel will work internally inside the dermis.

This peel can be expected to:

  • Help correct sun damage to a small degree.* Smooth fine lines.
  • Reduces mild scarring.
  • Smoothes rough texture.
  • Improves acne conditions.

It is unrealistic to expect this peel to remove or reduce broken blood vessels, eliminate deep wrinkles or redesign your natural pore size and shape. The pores will appear to be slightly smaller and more constricted post treatment but your pore size and shape is genetic. It is impossible to shrink them contrary to popular belief. You should wait 6-8 hours (a minimum of 2-3 hours) before washing your face after receiving your Vitalize Peel at Neu Look Med Spa. This particular one is self neutralizing. Any redness or sensitivity from the peel will subside within couple hours of the application and it will also take 48 HR for flaking to begin if you request the Retinol layer. The flakiness of vitalize peel is very minimum unless is used on someone with very sensitive skin or patient with darker skin. You can do a series of this peel and receive them every 3-4 weeks if you desire. You may also apply this peel to the neck and chest to improve fine lines and blotchy discoloration such as age spots.

The Rejuvenize Peel

The Rejuvenize Peel mainly targets fine lines and texture plus acne. This peel also has Salicylic Acid along with Mandelic Acid instead of Lactic Acid so it is a little stronger. You may also request to add a Retinol layer to increase your chances of physically peeling – but this is optional. This peel can performed in 3-5 week intervals and is best with a series of 3-6 peels.

This peel can be expected to:

  • Improve your overall skin condition.
  • Diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Smooth the skins texture.
  • Improve overall clarity of the skin (subsides the appearance of Acne).

The Cosmelan Peel

It is unrealistic to expect this peel to completely remove any deep set wrinkles or remove any dark spots that are deep. It can however help to address skin tone unevenness or scaring caused by acne. The Cosmelan Peel is the only peel to date that can help to reverse major sun damage and age spots. You should also wait 6-8 hours to remove the Cosmelan 1 mask. You may experience mild redness and sensitivity but this will not subsides as quick as other peels. You may also apply this peel to the neck and chest to improve fine lines, firming the skin and pigmentation.

A Few Words of Caution

Before your chemical peel you should avoid skin exposure to the sun and tanning. You should also discontinue the use of Retinol creams, AHA’s, Glycolic Acid, Vitamin C or Bleaching creams one week prior to your appointment. We at Neu Look will prescribe you a post-peel skincare regimen for your homecare to ensure the best and prolonged results of your treatment.

woman with pouty lips

While full, pouty lips have always been the epitome of a seductive look, there has been a recent resurgence in its popularity. Beauty and fashion icons, such as Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner, are credited with taking the plump lip trend to a whole new level. With picture-perfect pouts, millions of trendy individuals around the globe are looking for a way to mimic the fullness of their lips.

You may have heard about glosses and serums that promise to give the illusion of fuller lips, and you may have even tried them. While some of these products can temporarily provide plumper lips, they often come along with a stinging sensation and wear off quickly. For longer lasting results, many opt for Juvederm lip injection treatments.*

What Is Juvederm?

Juvederm is an FDA-approved treatment for lessening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is an injectable filler that includes hyaluronic acid and a natural sugar complex. These compounds help to restore the natural elasticity of the skin, aiding in a smoother, more supple appearance. The results are significant and, when used as a lip injection, you are able to maintain a celebrity level pout for substantially longer.* Read more “Perfect Your Pout With Juvederm”

Creative Ideas for Clear Skin
