How to Look Younger Before the Holidays. (Warning. . . you may have to start showing your ID again!)

  • October 4, 2013

Those wrinkles are starting to show, and the acne scars are more visible now that you’re a bit older. Your face and skin has lost its glow and now looks dull and gray.  You don’t want to resort to surgery and harsh treatments, such as Microdermabrasion,  just aren’t for you and you want to improve your looks before the holidays.

How can you improve and rejuvenate your skin without the downtime and cost of other treatments?

Micro Needling is a new treatment being offered at Caddell’s Laser Clinic.  Micro Needling is an aesthetic medical procedure that involves repeatedly applying tiny, sterile acupuncture needles to the skin multiple times during a treatment. The results?  Collagen rushes to fill the tiny, microscopic wounds on your skin, reducing the look of fine wrinkles and scars. The treatment gently exfoliates excess skin cells and stimulates blood flow to the surface, gives a skin massage, cleans out the pores and stimulates collagen re-growth.

Micro Needling helps increase the absorption of moisturizers, serums and creams. Normal absorption is roughly 4%, after the Micro Needling treatment the absorption is increased to 84%!

Clinical studies have shown that professional Micro Needling is an effective treatment in stimulating collagen and elastin production to thicken the skin helping to erase wrinkles and smooth out scars.

The advantages of Micro Needling include:

  • Micro Needling will increase the production of collagen with no damage to the protective layer of the skin, making this treatment revolutionary.
  • Lower in cost that other treatments, Micro Needling is effective, it has been reported that it is just as effective as IPL, Thermage & lasers and other machine based treatments.
  • Micro Needling is non-surgical and non-ablative, meaning it leaves the skin intact, making it a safe treatment. Patients feel very little pain during a treatment, experience a short downtime and there is minimal risk for complications.

The recovery rate for a typical Micro Needling treatment is 3 – 7 days with the renewing skin cycle/new collagen regrowth is 4-6 weeks.

After your treatment your skin will become stronger and more resistant to aging and environmental damage. It increases the flow of blood to the skin which is vital for keeping your youthful glow.

Skin care products used after Micro Needling are extremely beneficial. Discuss with your Caddell’s technician which Epionce product would be best for your skin after a treatment.  The renewing skin cycle/new collagen regrowth is 4-6 weeks.

Micro Needling treatment before the holidays will insure that you will be glowing this holiday season – just be careful ~ when you go out you may have to show your ID again!
