I had the opportunity to work with Lashed in South Ogden to experience the new trend in facials Microneedling. They should not be confused with the Vampire facial, which is similar but different because they apply a serum after the procedure with micro-needling. But after the vampire facial, they apply your own blood that has had the plasma spun. And a vampire facial has to be done by a doctor, where micro-needling needs to be done by a certified professional. I really enjoyed working with Lashed to learn more about the process.
Microneedling is a facial. It is not plastic surgery. You ask: “Then what is Microneedling? The micro-needling treatment uses a handheld needle pen to create controlled depth micro-injuries to the skin. As a result, 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 micro-needling, such as:
-Mild to moderate acne scarring
-fine lines and wrinkles
-loose & lax skin
-skin tone and texture
Depending on your goals and what problem you’re trying to fix will depend 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. And Within 2 weeks, you will start to see a change that will continue for 3 months. Of course, some treatments like hair loss or stretch marks take the 6 treatments and a little while longer to see the results. Still, with minimal downtime, 12-24 hours, your skin will love you!
“Does it hurt?” You have a numbing cream applied for about 20 minutes before the procedure, and I have to say I was nervous; however, it really didn’t hurt. Because the machine’s noise sounds like going to the dentist, if that noise bothers you, you might want earplugs, but otherwise, it’s 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. However, my skin got even dryer, and lines appeared on my cheeks, which I learned happens to some people and is part of rebuilding collagen. I was told it would go away, and my skin will be tighter in a couple of months! My skin glowed for a couple of days after the procedure, which I loved. As a result, my skin has a clearer complexion, smaller lines around my eyes and lips (I am a straw user).
“Would I recommend and would I do it again?” I would recommend this procedure to anyone looking to improve skin. And I will do this procedure again, However not every 6 weeks, but I would do it to replace a professional facial, which I do every couple of months. So, therefore, to maintain, I would do it a couple of times a year, thinking quarterly.
“How many times is recommended for a series?” For example, the first time a series of 3, unless used for hair loss or stretch marks, 4 to 6 is needed. After that, a series is done 5-6 weeks apart from each other.
Recommended Maintenance can be done every 6-9 weeks.
Price? $150 per session, but you may purchase a 3 pack for $400, so it’s a savings of $50
