Debunking Myths About Micro-Needling

Micro-needling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a rejuvenating skin care treatment that has rapidly grown in popularity in recent years. Its surge in popularity is due at least in part to the many celebrities who have added micro-needling to their beauty regimens, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Naomi Watts, and Jennifer Aniston. If you’re thinking about giving this medical spa treatment a try, you should get the facts behind these common myths.

Myth: Micro-needling is only for people worried about aging.

It’s true that micro-needling is an effective anti-aging treatment, but adults of any age can benefit from it. After you have this treatment, you can look forward to a refreshed, youthful appearance, with enhanced skin texture, tone, and softness. Micro-needling can improve the look of the following issues:

  • Acne scars
  • Injury scars
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

It can even help reduce the look of stretch marks!

Myth: Micro-needling doesn’t have to be done at a med spa.

You can purchase a micro-needling device to use at home, and these are generally safe for use (although there is a risk of skin infections). However, these devices are best used for skin care maintenance between appointments at a medical spa. You won’t get the same amazing results with an at-home device that you will at a med spa. Professionals have access to medical-grade systems, such as the Eclipse MicroPen Elite, which is an automated micro-needling device that produces professional results.

Myth: Micro-needling creates holes in the skin.

This myth is partially true in that micro-needling works by creating controlled, micro-injuries to the skin. Although this sounds a bit alarming, know that these micro-injuries are so small that you can’t see them with the naked eye. If you’re comfortable with the idea of getting Botox injections or dermal fillers, then you’ll do fine with micro-needling.

Making the Most of Your Radiofrequency Skin Care Treatments

Radiofrequency skin care treatments have been used for years to tighten the skin and rejuvenate one’s appearance. Thermage is one example of an anti-aging treatment that harnesses the ability of radiofrequency energy to lift tissue, improve skin tone and structure, and sculpt facial and body features. Little preparation is needed for a Thermage treatment session. Afterward, you can use the following guidelines to support optimum results.

Caring for Your Skin

Before you leave the medical spa, you’ll be given instructions on caring for your skin properly while it heals. This is a good time to switch up your skin care regimen if you usually use aggressive products. While your skin heals, use only mild, non-irritating cleansers and moisturizers. Avoid any aggressive mechanical methods, like sonic cleaning systems, and avoid using exfoliating products. After cleansing your face or bathing, use a very soft towel to gently blot the treated skin dry.

Avoiding Sunlight Exposure

It’s always important to protect yourself from ultraviolet (UV) rays, as they damage the look and health of your skin. But after having a radiofrequency treatment like Thermage, it’s absolutely crucial, as your skin will be more sensitive while it heals. Wear a non-comedogenic sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 every day, rain or shine. Apply it to all areas of exposed skin every two hours. While outdoors, wear a wide-brimmed hat for extra protection.

Applying Makeup

Unless your provider tells you otherwise, you can expect to wear makeup whenever you wish after your radiofrequency treatment. Since you’ll get good results from keeping your skin well-hydrated, you should apply moisturizer before applying makeup. Consider wearing makeup that is easily removed without the use of harsh cleansing pads.

Taking a Closer Look at the Causes of Skin Discolorations

Liver spots, age spots, and sun spots are all commonly used names for areas of hyperpigmentation on the skin. These can appear anywhere, but frequently affect areas of the skin exposed to sunlight, such as the face and hands. Fortunately, there are effective treatments for skin discoloration. Talk to a medical spa provider about laser skin resurfacing.

When you watch the accompanying video, you’ll learn about the underlying cause of skin discoloration and the risk factors that contribute to it. Liver spots develop because of an overproduction of melanin—the pigment found in skin. The most impactful risk factors of liver spots are unprotected sun exposure and the use of commercial tanning beds.

EpiCentre Skin Care & Laser Center offers medical-grade anti-aging treatments in Dallas, including Sciton Forever Young BBL for the correction of areas of hyperpigmentation. Call us at (214) 887-1577 to request the next available appointment at our med spa.

Say Goodbye to Spider Veins with the Help of VeinGogh

Spider veins are the appearance of small, gnarled blood vessels underneath the skin. Women are more likely to develop them, especially women with these additional risk factors: older age, obesity, and a sedentary lifestyle. Spider veins can make you look older than you really are, but a provider at a medical spa can help. VeinGogh is a cutting-edge medical spa treatment that precisely treats individual spider veins with little to no effect on the surrounding tissue.

The average treatment session takes about 20 minutes, and most people report excellent results with just one treatment. During your appointment, the provider will insert a hair-thin needle into the area. It delivers targeted, precisely controlled heat that eliminates the spider veins. There is no downtime required, and you won’t even require a bandage.

EpiCentre Skin Care & Laser Center is pleased to offer the VeinGogh Ohmic Thermolysis System to our valued med spa clientele in Dallas. For additional information about our suite of anti-aging treatments, call our office at (214) 887-1577.

Understanding Different Types of Brown Spots

Brown spots can occur anywhere on the skin, but most people find the spots on the face, neck, and hands to be most visually problematic. Consider visiting a med spa to discuss laser skin resurfacing for treating your brown spots. In the meantime, watch this video to find out about the different types of discoloration.

It features a dermatologist who explains that all brown spots are caused by the overproduction of melanin, which is the pigment in skin. Most brown spots, including post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and age or sun spots, develop after the skin sustains an injury. A third type, called melasma, is thought to be triggered by hormonal changes.

EpiCentre offers a full suite of medical spa treatments in Dallas for individuals who are concerned about the signs of sun damage or aging, including hyperpigmentation. New and current medical spa clients can call us at (214) 887-1577 to request an appointment.
