At Ageless Skin Rejuvenation in Virginia Beach, VA, we offer different microneedling treatments, including SkinPen treatments and RF microneedling with Morpheus8, to help patients improve collagen production and combat some of the most common signs of aging. Both treatments can help you begin a total skin transformation without ever using an injectable or undergoing a surgical procedure. These treatments can address the skin concerns that have been bothering you for years and restore youth and radiance to your skin.
Microneedling treatments qualify as a form of collagen induction therapy. They create injuries on the skin’s surface and in the deeper layers to force the body to respond with an inflammatory and healing reaction. As a result, the body will produce more collagen and elastin, two key proteins that are essential for youthful skin. If you’re suffering from the more common signs of aging, collagen loss is likely to blame.
However, needling techniques will naturally improve your skin and help you achieve dramatic results. We offer both SkinPen microneedling treatments and RF microneedling treatments with the Morpheus8 device. Depending on your needs and your skin condition, you may be better suited for one of these treatments over the other or a combination. We’ll design your unique treatment plan to address your specific skin concerns so you can smooth lines and wrinkles and enjoy beautiful results.
SkinPen microneedling is a treatment that delivers rejuvenating results through a minimally invasive treatment process. It’s designed to perfect the skin in different ways and can help promote improved skin texture, tone, and firmness and reduce the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and pores.
The SkinPen is an FDA-approved needling device that is safe, sanitary, and effective. During the treatment process, it will create controlled micro-injuries on the skin’s surface, forcing the body to respond with a natural wound-healing reaction. At the same time, the device can perfect the skin without causing cellular damage. It can remodel the skin while maintaining skin structure through a quick and efficient treatment process.
SkinPen treatments only take 30 minutes to complete. To begin, we will apply a numbing solution to your skin to reduce any possible discomfort. Once your treatment is over, we will provide you with a hydrating topical solution called Skinfuse LIFT to keep the skin fully hydrated post-treatment.
Patients with acne scars or skin textural issues who want to achieve anti-aging results make good candidates for SkinPen treatments. The first step in the treatment process is a consultation which will allow us to examine your skin in person and design a treatment plan with the right number of sessions to help you improve your skin.
RF microneedling is a minimally invasive modular fractional treatment can improve the signs of aging on both the face and the body. The different applicators can effectively tighten the skin and restore a more youthful appearance to facial soft tissue and smaller, harder-to-reach areas on the face like the under-eye and lip area. When used on the body, it can smooth lines and wrinkles and treat skin laxity.
We’ll take every step to promote your comfort during the treatment process. We will apply a topical numbing solution to your skin and begin the treatment. You may feel some warmth and light pressure during the treatment as the needles create tiny injuries in your skin, and the radiofrequency energy simultaneously targets the deeper dermal layers. Once your treatment is over, you can resume your normal daily activities.
The Morpheus8 device is safe for patients with skin types I through VI on the Fitzpatrick scale. Unlike many devices that deliver a resurfacing treatment, there is very little risk of post-treatment inflammatory hyperpigmentation with Morpheus8. If you’re looking for an effective device that will create the kind of collagen production that leads to dramatic results with minimal downtime, you may be the perfect candidate for Morpheus8 treatments.
Patients who have previously scheduled microneedling treatments and want to target some of the more advanced signs of aging on the face and body may be good candidates for Morpheus8 treatments. Those who have never experienced a needling treatment before and want to promote increased collagen production may be better suited for SkinPen treatments and advance to Morpheus8 treatments later on.
We will schedule a pre-treatment consultation with you to evaluate your skin and learn more about your skincare routine, the treatments you’ve experienced in the past, and what your ultimate skin care goals are. Then we can help design a treatment plan with one or both of our needling treatments to help you promote increased collagen production and combat aging naturally.
If you’re looking for a skincare treatment that doesn’t require significant downtime and guarantees results, Morpheus8 and SkinPen treatments can help you improve your complexion naturally. The treatments are quick yet effective and will enact a process in your body that will heal and rejuvenate your skin from the inside out.
