Microneedling or Laser – Technology Advancements in the Esthetic Industry
When it comes to the esthetic industry, lasers are the big dog on the block. Giving clients an opportunity to turn back the clock, lasers previously were the “go-to” for assistance on a wide range of concerns – from tattoo removal to hyperpigmentation, scarring and wrinkles. The newest lasers provide impressive results, however not every patient is the right candidate, nor excited when looking at the possible post procedure side effects, treatment costs and expected downtime.
Microneedling vs Lasers
Recently Millefiori Medical Skin Rejuvenation, located in downtown Melbourne, has added the newest type of technology to our advanced medical esthetic services, microneedling with the Rejuvapen. Microneedling incorporates fractional laser concepts, including creating “micro-channels” and a light intentional surface injury to stimulate a wound healing response from the epidermis to stimulate collagen and elastin production. It differs from lasers though, as microneedling does not use thermal energy (heat) on the epidermis – meaning less redness, swelling, and possible infections and scars. When thermal energy is used with fractional lasers, increased inflammation, patchy discoloration and extended downtime is expected. Rejuvapen microneedling treatments use the “drilling holes” concept, fractional collagen induction therapy, but by removing the heat aspect, is safer for more skin types while achieving equally impressive results. Darker skin types traditionally have more unpredictable reactions from lasers, so having an equal result option to fractional lasers is now a reality from a once thought dream.
Microneedling in Melbourne, FL
Microneedling at Millefiori Medical Skin Rejuvenation is an enjoyable and results-driven treatment. Each visit accesses the skin’s volume, elasticity, texture and tone. The procedure’s downtime is less than a day traditionally, and redness from the treatment subsides within hours of coming into the office. Unlike laser, crusting is less common, which gives patients more options with treatment during the week or with hectic social schedules. Treatments are performed in a series of 4 treatments, scheduled every 4 weeks for optimal results, and always come paired with medical grade skin care recommendations for the best results. Numbing is included with our Rejuvepen treatment at Millefiori Medical Skin Rejuvenation, and treatments are expected to last roughly 90 minutes. Consultations are always recommended for clients looking into corrective esthetic procedures, and are always complimentary at Millefiori.
