MD PEN MICRONEEDLING
Who is a good candidate for Microneedling?
Anyone seeking a quick and non-invasive path to smoother, more even toned and younger looking skin! This service has been a wonderful addition to our Elevated Skin Care Program because of it’s intense healing abilities when it comes to acne scarring, enlarged pores, rosacea, sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks and hair restoration.
How does Microneedling Work?
The Md Pen uses microneedles to create a series of tiny punctures to the skin to stimulate collagen production, restore elasticity and activate the healing process. Not all all micro needling pens are built the same however. The best thing about the Md Pen is the depth versatility which can penetrate both the epidermis and the dermis to specifically target different skin conditions and produce more dramatic results.
What does Microneedling feel like?
Flash Lab provides a numbing cream before this service so there is minimal to zero discomfort. Most areas can be done in about 20 minutes after which you will feel heat in the treatment zone for up to a few hours.
Who is a good candidate for Clear and Brilliant?
For anyone seeking to begin a preventive maintenance program, our non-invasive fractional laser provides incredible resurfacing capabilities. Monthly treatments will improve your skin’s overall texture by minimizing pore size, reducing fine lines and stimulating collagen production to promote firmness and elasticity keeping you fresh, young and visibly illuminated. Additionally, the Clear and Brilliant is second to none when it comes to correcting hormonal discolorations like melasma or age spots as well as increasing your skin’s permeability to enhance the effectiveness of products. And because it’s non-ablative, this treatment will leave you with minimal cosmetic downtime, a luxury not afforded by more invasive and deeper penetrating laser facials.
How does Clear and Brilliant Work?
Think of this treatment like going to the gym for your skin. The Clear and Brilliant’s fractional technology operates by evenly creating micro injuries to the subdermis which initiate healing and regrowth. This creates stronger, younger and healthier skin. New collagen will continue to develop over the course of four to six months giving you balanced, brilliant and on-going results!
Is Clear and Brilliant Safe?
Clear and Brilliant doesn’t penetrate as deeply as some of the more intense ablative lasers which means that the risk of side effects are less and the downtime is minimal, however as with any laser treatment, the true safety test is the experience of your technician. All Flash Lab staff have undergone training by the manufacturer and are licensed estheticians as well as certified laser technicians. This safety trifecta ensures that all of our clients are exceptionally cared for while receiving the most effective treatments.
How should I prepare for my Nicroneedling session?
The use of brightening or anti-aging serums that contain retinols or any exfoliating treatments should be avoided for at least one week prior to your treatment.
What should I expect after my Microneedling session?
Depending on the depth of your micro needling session you may be red or pink, similar to a moderate sunburn, for up to three days with some swelling potentially occurring on the 2nd day.
