Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that improves the surface of your skin. This multi-purpose treatment targets acne scars, boosts collagen and stimulates hair growth.
Microneedling is the insertion of very fine short needles into the skin at a depth of .5 to 2.5 millimeters using a microneedling pen. These multiple needle wounds stimulate the body to heal itself while increasing collagen, which ultimately creates a healthier younger looking complexion.
Although microneedling has been known and used since 1995 at dermatologist offices, only recently after Kim Kardashian posted her experience with the Vampire Facial on social media has the procedure become increasingly popular.
The Vampire Facial and Platelet Rich Plasm for Hair Restoration are two other services offered at Jánnha MediSpa. Both treatments use your own blood together with the microneedling procedure. The blood has mainly two components: red blood cells and plasma. The plasma is where the white blood cells are stored along with the platelets rich in growth factors. The blood is processed and only the platelets and rich plasma are applied to the skin. The microneedling procedure along with the growth factors stimulates the skin cells to function properly.
After a microneedling procedure your skin will look radiant and glowing for weeks. According to a study microneedling can produce an increase of 400% in collagen and elastin six months after completing the recommended sessions. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18349665)
At Jánnha MediSpa, Aesthetician Lindsey Starace recommends repeating the procedure once a month for four microneedling sessions.
