Do you want to brighten and tighten skin, soften fine lines and wrinkles, improve acne scars and hyperpigmentation AND have an overall luminous glow? You might be the perfect candidate for microneedling, Bella Santé’s newest med spa treatment to offer lasting results.
What Is Microneedling?
Cell turnover slows down with age, leading to loss of volume, texture and tone. By revving it back up in one powerful burst of energy, micro-needling delivers fast, flawless results with little to no downtime and minimal side effects. A state-of-the-art microscopic technology, microneedling creates microchannels (tiny punctures) in the skin that prompt the natural repair process to start producing collagen and elastin – the two main building blocks for beautiful, blemish-free skin. Short term micro injuries from microneedling prompt the skin to cycle through three phases of regeneration: Inflammation, Proliferation and Remodeling. These changes at the cellular level translate to more radiant, younger-looking skin, smaller pores, reduced fine lines and faded scars.
Who Should Get Microneedling?
A treatment often used on younger skin to help preserve youthful vitality, the procedure can be performed year round on men and women at any age who are looking for the perfect middle ground for keeping skin healthy and glowing and for those who wish to reduce their acne scarring.
Does Microneedling Hurt?
While a treatment with needles, no matter how small, may sound a little intimidating, microneedling is a fairly gentle, minimally invasive technique that relies on your own body to do the hard work naturally. Guests who have experienced the treatment report minimal or no discomfort. With no permanent injuries, possible side effects are short-lasting and mild – think the same degree of redness and swelling you might experience after spending too many hours at the beach. Post-procedure inflammation gradually fades after the first day.
Bringing you a versatile, non-invasive treatment that works for all ages, offers long lasting results, requires little to no downtime, and has an emphasis on organic results was driving force behind Bella Sante’s adding microneedling to the treatment menu. Multiple sessions are ideal, and thanks to ultra-fast recovery, scheduling is easy. We recommend a series of 4-6 treatments with 4-6 weeks in between appointments.
