Aging gracefully isn’t just about accepting the signs of time on our skin; it’s also about doing something about it. However, no matter how much we might want to, most of us can’t stop the hands of time. But what if there was a way to turn back the clock? At InVogue Rejuvenation in El Paso, TX, we offer RF microneedling, a minimally-invasive treatment that helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, tighten skin, and improve skin texture.
What Are the Benefits of RF Microneedling?
All Skin Types
There are five main types of skin: normal, sensitive, dry, oily, and combination. Normal skin is well-balanced, with no extreme sensitivities or blemishes. Dry skin is characterized by flakiness and a tight feeling after cleansing. Oily skin is shiny, thick, and prone to blemishes. Combination skin is a mix of oily and dry areas.
Microneedling can be used on all skin types. However, the type of skin you have will affect the microneedling treatment you receive in two ways: the intensity of the treatment and the post-treatment care plan. People with normal skin are typically able to tolerate higher intensities of RF microneedling, while people with sensitive skin may need a lower intensity or a shorter treatment time.
As we age, our skin produces less collagen and elastin, which leads to a loss of firmness. There are many reasons why wrinkles form on the skin. For example, sun exposure can cause the collagen in your skin to break down, leading to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Similarly, repetitive facial expressions can also cause wrinkles to form over time.
However, microneedling is a fantastic option for those who are looking to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. At InVogue Rejuvenation, we use Potenza RF microneedling device during treatment. The device has tiny needles that create microscopic holes in the skin. This triggers the body’s natural healing response, resulting in the production of new collagen.
Reduces Fine Lines
Fine lines are usually the first signs of aging that people notice. The lines typically appear around the eyes and mouth, and are caused by a loss of collagen and elastin in the skin. These lines become more pronounced with age, but there are treatments that can help reduce their appearance. By creating tiny punctures in the skin and boosting collagen production, microneedling helps to plump up the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines.
Reduces the Appearance of Acne Scars
Acne scars are a common skin concern that can occur when pimples or cysts become inflamed and pop. The deep trauma to the skin can result in indentations, raised bumps, and other irregularities. While there are a variety of treatments available to improve the appearance of acne scars, microneedling is one of the most effective. The treatment makes the skin become thicker and more elastic, which in turn helps to fill in scars.
Helps Even Out Skin Texture
Uneven skin texture is a common concern for many of our clients. The clients may have fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet, age spots, or other blemishes that give their skin an uneven appearance. Sometimes, these concerns can be addressed with our skincare products. However, we often recommend microneedling to help even out skin texture.
Has Little to No Discomfort
Let’s face it, nobody likes feeling pain. That’s why many people are hesitant to try new aesthetic treatments, even though they may be interested in the results. Microneedling is a great example of a treatment that usually has little to no discomfort during the treatment. When you come in for your appointment at InVogue Rejuvenation, we can guarantee that you’ll be able to relax and enjoy the experience.
Gives Natural-Looking Results
At our clinic, we develop a treatment plan to ensure your results are as natural as they can be. You don’t have to worry about your results looking artificial or “done.” Instead, you can enjoy smooth, youthful skin that looks like it’s been naturally achieved.
Helps Improve the Appearance of Stretch Marks
While stretch marks are harmless, they can be a cosmetic concern for many people. Stretch marks develop when the skin is stretched beyond its ability to heal itself. This can happen during periods of rapid weight gain or growth, such as pregnancy, puberty, or muscle building. Other factors that can contribute to the development of stretch marks include genetics, certain medical conditions, and certain medications. Luckily, microneedling can help improve the appearance of stretch marks.
Helps Tighten Loose Skin and Improve Skin Laxity
Skin laxity is often the first sign of aging, and it can be frustrating to see your once-youthful skin start to sag. Skin laxity occurs when the skin’s elastic fibers break down, causing the skin to lose its ability to snap back into place. This can happen for various reasons including sun damage, weight loss, and pregnancy.
Microneedling is a popular treatment for skin laxity because it helps to stimulate collagen production. Collagen is a protein that helps to keep the skin firm and elastic. Therefore, by increasing collagen production, microneedling can help to tighten loose skin and improve skin laxity.
Allows Combination of Treatments
BELOTERO BALANCE® is an injectable filler that can be used to treat moderate to severe wrinkles and fine lines. Unlike other fillers, BELOTERO BALANCE® is designed to integrate seamlessly into the skin, resulting in a natural-looking appearance. In addition, BELOTERO BALANCE® is safe for use in the sensitive areas around the eyes and mouth. When used in conjunction with microneedling, BELOTERO BALANCE® can help to plump the skin and smooth out wrinkles.
It’s a Safe and Effective Treatment
At our medical spa, we use the latest microneedling technology to help our clients achieve their desired results. Our experienced aesthetician will work with you to determine the best treatment plan for your skin type. We are confident in our ability to provide you with the best possible care, and we are dedicated to helping you achieve your goals.
Ways To Extend Your Microneedling Results
Use a Sunscreen
Sun exposure can reverse the effects of microneedling and cause your skin to produce more pigment. To protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays, be sure to apply a sunscreen with an SPF of 50 every day before going outside. You should also wear protective clothing, such as a hat and long-sleeved shirt, when spending time in the sun.
Avoid Touching Your Face Unnecessarily
Your hands are covered in bacteria, which can transfer to your face and cause breakouts or other skin issues. Additionally, touching or picking at your face can cause scars or other damage that can undo all of the good work done by microneedling. So, resist the urge to touch your face throughout the day with dirty hands, and be extra careful not to pick or pop any pimples that may crop up.
Eat a Healthy Diet and Drink Plenty of Water
What you put into your body shows up on your skin, so eating a healthy diet and drinking plenty of water is essential for keeping your skin looking its best. In addition to extending your microneedling results, eating well and staying hydrated will also help improve your overall health and well-being.
Get Enough Sleep Every Night
Sleep is essential for skin cells to repair themselves while you sleep, so getting enough shut-eye is crucial for maintaining healthy, youthful-looking skin. If you’re not getting enough sleep, it will show on your skin — and it will also make it harder for you to see microneedling results that last. Aim for seven to eight hours of sleep every night, and turn in early if you can.
Get Regular Facials
In addition to microneedling treatments, getting regular facials can also help extend the results by keeping your skin looking its best. Facials not only help improve the appearance of your skin but they also help remove impurities that can clog pores and lead to breakouts (which can undo all of the hard work you’ve put into getting clear skin!).
