I had the opportunity to work with Lashed in South Ogden to experience the new trend in facials Microneedling. Not to be confused with the Vampire facial which is similar but different because after the procedure with microneedling they apply a serum and after the vampire facial they apply your own blood that has had the plasma spun. A vampire facial has to been down by a doctor and microneedling needs to be done by a certified processional. I really enjoyed working with Lashed to learn more about the process.
Microneedling is a type of facial it is not plastic surgery. You ask then what is Microneedling? Micro needling treatment uses a hand held needle pen to create controlled depth micro-injuries to the skin. This stimulates the skin’s natural repair process to produce collagen and elastin. Microneedling can transform your skin by increasing collagen, reducing wrinkles, shrinking pore size, decreases acne scars, even skin tone and improve overall skin texture.
You can treat and improve many conditions with the microneedling such as
-Mild to moderate acne scaring
-fine lines and wrinkles
-loose & lax skin
-skin tone and texture
-Sun damage skin
Depending on what your goals are and what problem you’re trying to fix depends on how many treatments you’ll need. A single procedure will make a nice change but a series of 3-6 treatments is ideal for optimal results. within 2 weeks you will start to see change that will continue for 3 months. Some treatments like hair loss or stretch marks take the 6 treatments and a little while longer to see the results. With very little down time 12-24 hours, your skin will love you!
Does it hurt? You have a numbing cream applied for about 20 minutes prior to the procedure and I have to say I was nervous but it really didn’t hurt at all. The noise of the machine sounds like going to the dentist so if that noise bothers you, you might want ear plugs but otherwise its pretty quick and feels like a microdermabrasion facial. (a little sandy)
What did I notice… I noticed my brown spot with a black center faded a little after each process and by the 3rd was noticeably smaller and lighter. My skin got even dryer and lines appeared on my cheeks which I learned this happens to some people and is apart of the process of rebuilding collagen. I was told it will go away and my skin will be tighterin a couple of months! My skin glowed for a couple days after the procedure which I loved. Overall my skin has a clearer complexion, smaller lines around eyes and lips (I am a straw user).
Would I recommend and would I do again? I would recommend this to anyone looking to improve skin. I will do this procedure again not every 6 weeks but I would do it to replace a professional facial which I do every couple of months. So to maintain I would do it a couple times a year, thinking quarterly.
How many times is recommended for a series? First time a series of 3 unless using for hair loss or stretch marks then its 4 to 6. Series is done 5-6 weeks apart from each other.
Recommended Maintenance can be done every 6-9 weeks.
Price? $150 per each session but you can purchase a 3 pack for $400 so its a savings of $50
