What to expect from your Gahanna, Ohio Microneedling service?

SaVéSkin Medi Spa offers a safe and effective way to enhance the appearance of your skin. We’ve been performing micro-needling in Gahanna, Ohio for years and have used micro-needling in many different kinds of treatments including facelifts, Botox, fillers, thread lifts, chemical peels and more.

Micro-needling in Gahanna, Ohio by SaVéSkin Medi Spa is based on the use of tiny needles to create micro-channels (tiny holes) in the skin.

Who is it for? This treatment is appropriate for everyone regardless of age, skin type or skin color. The process stimulates your skin’s natural ability to heal itself and in the process produces collagen and elastin. This specialized technique will refine lines and wrinkles, diminish acne scars and stretch marks, hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation.

This repair process begins and can result in a thicker dermis and softened or scars.  There is little-to-no tissue destruction with micro-needling.  The small channels in the epidermis can close very quickly and the skin may begin a healing response right away.  Depending on the depth of the skin defect, you may see only redness or you may experience some pinpoint bleeding which can stop possibly quickly.

Microneedling and PRF

PRF stands for Platelet Rich Fibrin. Micro-needling in Gahanna, Ohio by SaVéSkin Medi Spa is new way to make collagen! Platelet Rich Fibrin works by utilizing your own natural platelets to instruct the body to create new collagen for firm, smooth and radiant skin. What is PRF? PRF Rejuvenation is a simple in-office nonsurgical procedure which uses a concentrated serum processed from your own blood. The serum is applied to the surface of or injected into the skin to increase its healing and rejuvenating properties. How does it work? A small vial of blood is taken from your arm – less than that normally taken for routine blood tests. The blood is spun in a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells and fibrin. The process concentrates the platelet count to about 4X normal. It is this platelet-rich fibrin that is used in or on your skin to enhance the shape of your face and restore volume to it. The rejuvenation process can begin quickly and can result in a thicker dermis and softened wrinkles or scars. Microneedling can be used in combination with PRF. This helps to carry the serum into the skin. The small channels in the epidermis close very quickly and the skin then begins a healing response. Depending on the depth of the microneedling you may see only redness or you may experience some pinpoint bleeding which spots quickly.

The Benefits of Microneedling

Microneedling is less expensive than laser treatments, which can cost about four times as much. Microneedling may work better for people with darker skin tones because it doesn’t involve heat the way laser treatments do, which can affect your skin’s pigmentation, or color. Ask your dermatologist what’s best for your skin — and your budget.

Dermatologists (doctors who specialize in skin care and skin disorders) can do microneedling. Aestheticians also do it. If you try it somewhere other than a doctor’s office, first check on the person’s experience and credentials, and make sure that all of the equipment is sterilized. There are do-it-yourself versions of microneedling devices. But dermatologists warn against using those because you might accidentally hurt your skin, and you may not have a good way to sterilize the needles.

Microneedling may help with issues like:

  • Acne
  • Hair loss (also called alopecia)
  • Dark spots or patches on your skin (hyperpigmentation)
  • Large pores
  • Reduced skin elasticity
  • Scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Sun damage
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
