Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that uses needles to create tiny punctures in the top layer of skin, which in turn stimulates collagen production and the growth of elastin. Needles can be adjusted in size from 0.5 millimeters to 2.5 millimeters. The smallest needle size penetrates the stratum cornea, or the superficial layer of skin, for more advanced results.
Benefits of treatment include:
- Reduced pore size
- Diminished appearance of acne scars
The aesthetician will begin by cleansing the face and then apply a topical numbing cream to minimize pain and discomfort. After applying a serum that promotes skin rejuvenation, the aesthetician will pass a microneedling pen across the face. Another layer of serum will be applied once the procedure is complete, and a mask will be used to lock in moisture.
The NuAge Spa laser facial is designed to remove the outer layer of skin while heating the underlying skin and stimulating collagen production. The new top layer of skin will grow smooth and firm.
Benefits of the laser facial include:
- Reduced pore size
- Improved skin tone and texture
- Increased collagen production
The Q-Switched laser induces a healthy injury to melanosomes, causing fragmentation and rupture of the highly-pigmented skin. After treatment, clients will enjoy overall brighter and tighter skin.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Treatment
IPL treatment uses light energy to remove pigmented or damaged skin cells or unwanted hairs. The light heats skin cells and breaks them down, forcing the body to remove the damaged tissue naturally.
This is a great treatment option for clients with the following skin concerns:
- Acne scars
- Skin damage caused by excessive sun exposure
- Spider veins
- Stretch marks
The IPL laser may also remove unwanted hair or tattoos.
During treatment, the skincare professional will use a handheld device to deliver light therapy. Clients may have a numbing cream applied to minimize pain and discomfort. The laser will feel as if an elastic band is being “snapped” on the skin. Most clients will need multiple sessions to see results.
Skin Resurfacing ResurFX™
If you’re searching for facial treatments in Ladera Ranch, consider Skin Resurfacing ResurFX™. This treatment uses a nonablative fractional laser to rejuvenate the skin by stimulating collagen production. It’s a great option for clients wanting to improve the following skin concerns:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Visible signs of skin damage caused by excessive sun exposure
- Scars and acne scars
- Poor skin texture
- Uneven skin tone
- Loose skin
The skincare professional will begin by learning about the client’s skincare concerns and treatment goals. Once they have a firm understanding of the client’s expectations, they will apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area and adjust the setting on the handpiece used to deliver light therapy. The skincare professional will then pass the handpiece over the skin, creating micro injuries on the skin while simultaneously soothing and protecting the skin from excessive heat.
