Microneedling AKA The Vampire Facial!
Microneedling is an exciting & minimally invasive cosmetic procedure. It involves pricking the skin with tiny sterilized needles. The small wounds cause your body to make more collagen and elastin, which heal your skin and help you look younger. You might also hear it called collagen induction therapy or the "Vampire Facial" due to the small amount of blood that surfaces during treatment!
Microneedling may help with issues like:
- Hair loss (also called alopecia)
- Dark spots or patches on your skin (hyperpigmentation)
- Large pores
- Reduced skin elasticity
- Stretch marks
- Sun damage
- Fine lines and wrinkles
Microneedling may work better for people with darker skin tones because it doesn’t involve heat the way laser treatments do, which can affect your skin’s pigmentation, or color.
The goal of the procedure is to start your body’s healing process by sending collagen and elastin to patch up the tiny injuries. Collagen helps fill in and smooth out wrinkles.
Most people get microneedling on the face, but it can also done on other parts of the body, such as your stomach or thighs. And don't worry you won't feel a thing! At RX Super Spa your numbing cream for the treatment is included!
