Collagen and elastin are key elements in our skin that help to create a youthful appearance. When these stores begin to deplete as we age, our skin starts to show signs of aging with fine lines and wrinkles. Microneedling with ProCell® therapy works to stimulate collagen production to rejuvenate your complexion.
What is Microneedling with ProCell Therapy?
ProCell combines the benefits of microneedling technology with the science of human stem cells. By creating hundreds of microscopic punctures in the skin’s surface, the natural production of new collagen and elastin is stimulated. ProCell treats fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks and skin texture. It is a safe, in-office procedure that is quick and simple, resulting in healthier looking and feeling skin with no downtime.
During this skin treatment, most patients feel a slight vibration, though a topical numbing cream can be applied to ensure your comfort. The ProCell microneedling pen will then be used to create micro skin punctures to stimulate the production of collagen in the skin. This collagen generation will then strengthen the skin and reduce signs of aging with improved overall experience.
Benefits of ProCell Serum
The tiny channels creating during the microneedling process allow for easier absorption of products into the skin. ProCell serum is derived from human stem cells and contains many growth factors such as, vitamin C, ceramide, and retinol that can enhance the benefits of microneedling alone. The ProCell serum speeds up skin cell repair and renewal for quicker, more noticeable results.
Who is a Good Candidate?
Microneedling with ProCell can treat a variety of skin types with little recovery time. Patients who wish to improve skin appearance on the face, neck, and décolleté can often benefit from microneedling and avoid a surgical procedure. Microneedling can also be used to maintain results of a surgical procedure like a facelift or be used in an attempt to prevent future signs of aging. A consultation can help to best determine if you can benefit from this procedure.
Post-treatment, the skin will appear slightly pink and may resemble a mild sunburn. Our skincare specialist will apply Skinfuse® RESCUE Calming Complex after treatment to calm the skin after the microneedling treatment. There is little to no downtime needed, and makeup can be worn on the second day.
After treatment with microneedling, your skin will go through its natural healing process, increasing blood flow, producing new collagen, and developing elastin. The result will be healthier, stronger skin with improved tone and texture. A course of 4-6 procedures will be recommended for optimal results.
