How You Can Reverse Spots and Improve Skin Texture with Microneedling
If you’re tired of dealing with regular breakouts, uneven skin texture, or dullness, and just want clearer, smoother, brighter skin…the solution to getting the skin of your dreams could be as simple as a few needles away with a McAllen Microneedling (also known as “Collagen Induction Therapy” or “Vampire Facial”). We’re often asked to reverse skin damage, but if clients would start to invest in themselves by getting monthly facials and anti-aging services early, in their 20s, their 50-year-old selves will thank them. Taking protective measures as you get older will help your skin age gracefully and avoid the early onset of visible aging.
All month we’ve been talking about microneedling and how it is one of the best treatments to help achieve beautifully smooth and flawless skin, but with any service with us, the first step is always a consultation. During your consultation at Beautique Medical Spa, our experienced skin care professionals will ask you a series of questions about your skincare habits, desires, budget, and time availability. Your answers will help them provide you with insightful information on what you can do to get results.
One of these preventative measures includes incorporating the best anti-aging and pre-rejuvenation serums, hydrators, and SPF for your skin type combined with aesthetic procedures such as microneedling, dermaplaning, or thermage skin tightening, as a maintenance regimen to prevent premature skin aging and prevent your collagen from diminishing. REMEMBER—it is never too early to start caring for your skin. At our anti-aging clinic, our team of aesthetics professionals can guide you on how to age like fine wine!
We’re going to take you through a microneedling journey, from beginning to end with one of our clients – Yvette. This was her first microneedling experience and she wanted to share why she’s hooked with you. So, if you’ve been a little scared or uncertain as to whether this would be a good treatment for you…see what she has to say about it and soon you’ll be saying, “I really want this…now!”
Microneedling…The Beautique Way to Achieving Flawless Skin
Microneedling has become popular as a way to fight the effects of aging. Many people have found amazing results from using this method to help improve their skin. No need for painful plastic surgery or other invasive treatments to get that youthful glow once more. Microneedling works the same way lasers do, only you’re creating a controlled micro- injury to the skin mechanically instead of using heat or light. A pen-like device with tiny needles creates hundreds of tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of your skin – please remember this should only be done by a trained aesthetician, dermatologist, or cosmetic surgeon.
At Beautique Medical Spa, we use the MicroPen EVO, the advanced FDA cleared medical grade automatic microneedling device which is refined for intensified collagen induction therapy, this means we can provide you superior results with this pen. This device creates controlled micro-injuries to the skin. The skin is stimulated and the body’s natural wound healing processes, resulting in cell turnover and increased collagen and elastin production, therefore reversing as well as preventing signs of aging, resulting in improved skin tone and texture. And the best part is that this service works beneath the surface of your skin, so downtime is minimal and you can reap all the benefits! Just a few are:
•A visible reduction in large pores •Reduction in the appearance of stretch marks
•Smoothing of wrinkles and filling deep lines •Collagen and elastin stimulation
•Improvement of depressed acne scarring •Reduction in cellulite
First Hand Results: “I Tried Microneedling and Here’s What Happened”
Hi, Beautique beauties! My name is Yvette, and I am an ambassador and a long-time client with Beautique Medical Spa. I trust the expertise of their team because they have more than 20 years of experience in the field of skincare, and they ensure my skin looks radiant and flawless at all times. So, trust me – this is the McAllen medical spa you want to see! I’m very excited to share my microneedling journey with you – are you ready?
First, and foremost if you’re considering microneedling, the first step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Sanchez and his team. As I said, they’re all knowledgeable, highly trained, and licensed in microneedling and you should always make sure that the person performing this treatment is too.
What to Expect During a Microneedling Consultation
During my consultation we had an in-depth conversation about:
•My Medical history (allergies, current medications)
•My personal skin concerns
•What I hope to achieve with microneedling
•My current skin routine
•Any previous treatments I have had
This information is so important because it’s what helps Dr. Sanchez and his skin care team to determine if microneedling is ultimately the right treatment for you. It will also allow them the opportunity to develop a customized treatment plan based on your skin goals.
My consultation was very informative and it also made me feel better knowing that I was a perfect candidate and I would definitely get results from this treatment. I definitely wouldn’t like to waste precious time on something that wasn’t going to reach my skin goals! For me, I was hoping to give my skin a little glow up and just overall maintenance.
No More Excuses, It’s Time to Get Started!
Initial consultation with a skin care expert? Check. Making sure I am the right candidate? Check. It’s treatment time!
We need a “clean canvas” ladies and gents! This means a clear and cleansed face.
Numbing cream is applied – I know you were waiting for that one. YES! It’s almost absolutely painless. Personally, I felt a little bit of a tickle and had almost no pain.
Once the numbing cream kicks in – treatment begins. Like mentioned above a pen-like device with tiny needles will glide over the top layer of the skin. As the pen was used across my whole face, a gel was applied to help it move effortlessly – it only took 30 minutes!
My Post Microneedling Experience Exceeded My Expectations. Here’s What You Can Expect:
I was totally surprised at how painless microneedling actually is. You hear that tiny little needles will be smoothed over your skin and you think – “ouch!” But that wasn’t the case. I felt comfortable the entire time and almost relaxed with the constant buzzing of the pen-like device gliding over my face.
Immediately after my treatment, you could see redness and a bit of irritation, which is completely normal. It almost felt similar to a sunburn sensation. My post-treatment instructions included:
•Sente Dermal Repair Cream – hydrates and rejuvenates.
•Sente Dermal Contour Pressed – it’s meant to reduce the redness in the skin, hydrate, and help the skin repair itself.
These two products work together to help the skin recover faster and keep it hydrated. My skin was a little dry at times and this helped in delivering deep hydration. It’s important to follow your post-treatment instructions with the products, not exercising, and not getting any sun exposure following treatment. You want to make sure your skin is healing correctly – and after all Beautique skin experts have a deeper knowledge of making sure you’re safe and healing properly – so I’d say take the advice!
Loving My Post-Microneedling Glow
I have to say that I absolutely love microneedling. It’s a great way to say to your skin “hey, wake up, I need you to look youthful and beautiful again!” Take a look at the days after my treatment and my overall results!
day of treatment
day 2 post-treatment
day 3 post-treatment
day 5 post-treatment
Just like Dr. Sanchez and his team mentioned: Starting days 7 to 14 and onwards, I would see results that I will absolutely love. The microneedling glow is in full effect, ladies and gents!
By day 3 my redness and puffiness subsided immensely. Although I did feel like my skin needed that extra hydration because it did feel very dry. However, Sente Dermal Repair Cream and Sente Dermal Contour Pressed worked absolutely wonders. So please make sure you follow your microneedling post-instructions to the T.
My skin feels soooo much smoother and I see the difference in the fine lines by the corner under my eyes. And it’s only been a week! With time and as my collagen grows and repairs I will be seeing more results in about the next 6 months.
This is such a great way to jump-start your skincare game! What are you guys waiting for? Microneedling is a great option for anyone looking to improve the appearance of their skin. It is non-invasive and almost painless, and it can have amazing results. I would definitely recommend giving it a try.
