Microneedling and PRP “Vampire Facelift”
Microneedling refers to the use of tiny, short needles using that puncture the skin to promote the process of collagenesis. The needles penetrate only at the superficial level, so the sensation of the needles penetrating tiny holes in the skin is minimal, and treatments do not require any downtime. Microneedling causes the skin to rebuild collagen and elastin, which produces a tightening effect to the skin and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. The micro-channels penetrate deep into the skin, which allows for better product absorption of topical skincare products as well as providing anti-aging benefits to the surface of the skin. Microneedling can also be combined with PRP for more effective, longer lasting results.
At Etanda Skin Solutions, we use either microneedling pen or the U225 meso gun to perform collagen-induction therapy. PRP is teeming with platelet and growth factor proteins. The “Vampire Lift” procedure uses material derived from your own body to heal and rejuvenate your skin. Our Nurse Practitioner offers this procedure as a completely natural, non-surgical face lift for Edmonton men and women. PRP injections reduces the sign of aging by rejuvenating the facial skin and underlying tissue. Delivering PRP with the U225 gun make this procedure virtually painless and delivers the PRP precise into the correct levels of the dermis this allows for optimal results and no down-time downtime.
Microneedling with Skinboosters
TEOSYAL® PureSense Redensity [I] is an award winning Dermo-Restructuring treatment for skin revitalization that may dramatically restores hydration, luminosity, and tone to the skin and prevents premature aging.
As you age, the signs of skin maturation are accentuated by the loss of luminosity in your skin; fine lines and wrinkles begin to appear, texture and tone become uneven and your complexion becomes dull and discolored. The exclusive formula of TEOSYAL® PureSense Redensity [I] is specifically designed to target dull complexion, fine lines, and dehyrdated skin by redensifying the skin on your face, neck, decollete, and hands. The procedure is also called the Light Filling Treatment because the redensification of the dermis with hydration and nourishment increases the ability of the skin to reflect light and results in skin that looks smooth and glowy. The uniform natural improvement in appearance may be visible within days of the treatment, as well as cumulative with each session; skin looks naturally plumped, radiant and smooth, with luminosity restored.
TEOSYAL® PureSense Redensity [I] youth elixir is formulated with purified anti-aging ingredients consisting of 8 amino acids, 3 antioxidants, 2 minerals, hydrating hyaluronic acid, and 1 vitamin – all ingredients naturally present in the skin.
To understand how the treatment works it is helpful to understand how your skin works. In young skin, large amounts of hyaluronic acid keep the skin young and healthy. After the age of 20, our body’s ability to produce collagen and hyaluronic acid decreases with age, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of elasticity, tone and volume. Collagen and hyaluronic acid ( HA) are vital to maintaining the health of our skin. Collagen provides skin with it’s firmness, but it is HA that nourishes and hydrates the collagen. Hyaluronic Acid is a carbohydrate that is naturally occurring throughout the human body. Roughly 50% of HA in our body is found in our skin, for example it is what keeps our lips protected, hydrated and plump. Hyaluronic acid provides continuous moisture by acting like a sponge, binding and absorbing up to 1000 times its weight in water. The increased hydration may add volume and density and stimulate collagen production. This treatment is perfect during the long winter months, to tackle dry, dull skin that has lost it natural glow.
