At Reno Sparks MedSpa in Reno, NV, we provide a solution for individuals dissatisfied with the results of at-home treatments and skincare products that may not have yielded the desired improvements. Our clinic offers microneedling treatments, a minimally invasive, swift, and entirely natural process to address and correct common skin concerns and imperfections.
How Often Can You Get Microneedling?
Microneedling enhances natural collagen production to address common skin imperfections and signs of aging. Optimal results are achieved through a treatment plan that includes multiple sessions, with a recommended interval of at least four weeks between each session. Depending on your skin type and concerns, monthly treatments may be beneficial for sustained collagen and elastin production. The ideal treatment schedule is determined through a pre-treatment consultation with our estheticians, who assess your skin and tailor a plan to ensure optimal results.
What Is Microneedling?
This treatment is designed to diminish fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, and the appearance of acne scars. Using a specialized pen-like needling device during the treatment, tiny wounds are created on the skin’s surface. These micro-injuries prompt the body to initiate a healing response, cleansing the area, increasing collagen and elastin production, and regenerating younger and healthier skin cells. The outcome is revitalized, radiant, and more youthful-looking skin with a smoother and more even tone and texture.
What Can It Treat?
Microneedling treatments effectively address various skin conditions, offering solutions for those seeking improvement or wanting to enhance already healthy skin. Our needling treatments can treat:
Acne scars, hypertrophic scars, and keloid scars
Uneven skin texture
A dull complexion
Fine lines and wrinkles
What Device Do We Use?
At Reno Sparks MedSpa, we employ a cutting-edge CosmoPen device to perform microneedling treatments. The CosmoPen is a compact, pen-shaped device with adjustable features and disposable tips, each equipped with 12 tiny needles. For every treatment, a new and sterile tip is utilized, ensuring the utmost hygiene and safety. The unique feature of the CosmoPen lies in its adjustable needle penetration depth, ranging from 0.25 to 2.5 mm, approximately 1/100 to 1/10 of an inch.
This adjustable depth capability empowers us to tailor each microneedling session to suit your specific needs, allowing us to minimize discomfort while maximizing the effectiveness of the treatment. The CosmoPen’s versatility enhances the overall microneedling experience, ensuring a personalized and results-driven approach to rejuvenating your skin.
What Happens During a Treatment?
The treatment begins with the application of a topical numbing cream for your comfort. Once the skin is numb, the excess numbing solution is removed, and the treatment commences. Focusing on specific areas of concern and the surrounding skin, the esthetician creates uniform patterns of microchannels in the skin, using the CosmoPen. We will also give you aftercare instructions at the end of your treatment. Then, you can go on with your day.
What Kind of Downtime Should I Plan Around?
Microneedling treatments involve minimal social downtime, which is one of the reasons why they are so popular. The first few hours after treatment, your face may feel strange, as the numbing cream will be effective for a while after your treatment has ended.
Immediately after treatment, your skin will be extra sensitive to the sun, so you should be careful to avoid sun exposure and wear sunscreen. Temporary avoidance of cosmetics, and harsh anti-aging products such as those with retinol, AHAs, and BHAs, is also recommended while your skin goes through the initial stages of healing. You should also avoid hot baths, saunas, and any activities that raise body temperature for a few days.
Can I Combine It With Other Treatments?
This treatment complements other professional skincare treatments, such as chemical peels. During the initial consultation, our aestheticians customize your treatment plan based on your skin concerns, offering recommendations to address primary concerns and achieve healthy, beautiful skin.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
Immediate effects may include tighter skin, and the best results become visible in the following month as the body continues to boost natural collagen and elastin production. Expect reduced lines and wrinkles, smaller pores, improved skin tightness, and enhancements in the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks. Unique treatment expectations will be discussed during your initial consultation.
How Long Will My Results Last?
The duration of results from needling treatments varies based on the frequency of scheduled sessions, however, after your first session has caused the generation of collagen you can expect to see results lasting from several weeks to several months. After multiple treatments are performed, your results will last much longer, but maintenance treatments throughout the year are advised to sustain results and continue to slow the aging process.
Enhancing Your Results
Following post-care instructions and using the right products immediately after treatment can enhance results. The increased skin absorption rate post-treatment allows products to penetrate deeper layers, maximizing benefits. You can also enhance your results by making sure to stay hydrated and eating a healthy, balanced diet.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Most individuals with healthy skin, free of infections or active acne, seeking a natural solution to improve skin health, tone, texture, and clarity qualify for this treatment. A consultation is conducted to confirm that this treatment aligns with your skin, medical history, and goals.
Individuals with active infections, open wounds, or a history of keloid scarring may be less suitable candidates. Those with certain skin conditions, such as eczema or psoriasis, may experience complications, as well as individuals with a tendency to form hypertrophic scars. Pregnant or breastfeeding individuals may need to postpone treatment, and those with a compromised immune system or recent use of certain medications may be at an increased risk.
