After extensive research, I am so happy to announce a fantastic addition to our menu of services. Buttercup will use a device called Mesopen (also known as SkinPen) to perform Automated aesthetic-grade Micro-Needling.
What is Automated Micro-Needling?
Automated Micro-Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy used for treatment of fine lines, hyper-pigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks and generally creates a fresher appearance or glow to the skin. During this procedure, tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker dermis with the appearance of softer wrinkles. It also creates superficial micro-channels which allow topical gels, creams and serums to be absorbed more effectively into the skin.
What areas of the body can I treat?
MesoPen can be used on all parts of the body; Face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.
What does it Feel Like?
The feeling associated with Micro-needling Treatment is similar to light sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating needle tip reduces discomfort while the applied hydrating gel also makes the treatment more tolerable.
How long does the procedure take?
The procedure takes 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.
What is the downtime?
Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin.The total healing time depends on the depth of needles used and the number of overlapping passes. On average, clients are red up to 2 to 4 days. Some clients heal completely in as little as 24 hours.
When will I see the results?
Clients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several days and weeks. Results continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production continues.
How many treatments will I need?
Some clients only require a single treatment, however, it is recommended for most clients to receive a series of 3 treatments spaced about 6 weeks apart. For clients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 6 week intervals.
Individual treatment costs are $150/session. Package of 4: $500. Call 608-849-2887 or schedule online.
