Achieve Optimal Results Without Increasing Downtime
Our skin produces less collagen as we get older, and that’s why wrinkles and sagging skin start to appear. Microneedling boosts the body’s natural collagen production, resulting in firmer, tighter, smoother skin.
Lasers and other collagen-promoting technologies can deliver dramatic results without the risks that come with invasive surgery. Choosing the right treatment will depend on your skin type and desired outcomes, as well as your tolerance for downtime to heal. Andes Med Spa has the latest machines and technologies to unlock younger-looking skin. Each of the anti-aging machines in our med spa is built for optimal comfort and recovery for light and dark skin types.
Microneedling is an anti-aging skin rejuvenation treatment. Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling is the process of pricking the skin with tiny needles to stimulate natural collagen production. Increased collagen helps the body to smooth wrinkles and fill scars. The result is smoother, younger-looking skin, starting after the very first treatment.
Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling is a treatment that simulates the natural production of collagen to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Results can be seen in as little as one office visit and will improve over time.
VirtueRF Microneedling is the world’s first RF Microneedling product that goes beyond reducing fine lines and wrinkles for your most beautiful skin. VirtueRF offers versatile treatments to address your unique concerns and achieve your desired outcomes. A comfortable and sophisticated aesthetic experience that delivers immediate results that reproduce over time, without your standard social down-time.
VirtueRF’s treatment experience is ended with an exclusive Microcurrent Dual Mask – an award-winning K-Beauty mask created by Dr. Franz . This two mask system soothes skin and eliminates redness. HOW IT WORKS: An Enriching Mask infused with antioxidants, vitamins, moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties is applied to the skin. To activate the Enriching Mask, overlay a second Empowering Mask that uses patented Tissue X™ technology to deliver ingredients deeper into the skin with an ion induced current.
Which skin conditions can Microneedling treat?
Microneedling can treat any number of common cosmetic skin issues, among them:
Persistent open pores
Wrinkle reduction/skin tightening
The treatment is typically used for general firming, skin tightening and wrinkle reduction on the face, neck, jaw, upper lip, around the eyes, mouth and jowls. However, it’s equally effective when applied to other areas of the body such as the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, and knees.
What are the side effects?
Immediately after treatment there will be some pinpoint bleeding but it quickly subsides. Patients report they feel like they have a mild sunburn in the area for the first few hours post-treatment.
Swelling is common for the first few days and is sometimes accompanied with bruising around the treatment site. As your skin naturally heals it will likely become dry and flaky for a few days as well, but within two weeks the improvements to your skin tone and texture will become noticeable.
How should I care for my skin after treatments?
Avoid wearing make-up for the first 24 hours afterwards. You will also be advised to stay out of the sun and wear an SPF 30+ sunscreen when you do go outdoors.
To improve your comfort level and promote healing, applying certain aftercare products such as aloe vera gel is typically encouraged to protect your skin and help avoid potential complications while you heal.
