Catalyze Natural
Collagen Production

Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that stimulates the body’s natural collagen production process. During a microneedling session, tiny, fine needles are used to create micro-injuries on the skin’s surface. These controlled injuries trigger the skin’s natural healing response, prompting the production of collagen and elastin, key components for maintaining youthful, firm, and plump skin. This helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars and can even enhance overall skin texture and tone.

SkinPen is a state-of-the-art microneedling device that we trust and utilize for our microneedling treatments at uGlow Med Spa. This FDA-cleared, medical-grade tool offers precise and controlled microneedling, ensuring consistent and effective results. Its adjustable needle depth allows us to tailor treatments to each individual’s unique skin concerns and needs. Microneedling in Salem offers a rejuvenated and revitalized complexion with minimal discomfort and downtime.

Add PRP/PRF to Your Microneedling Session

PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) and PRF (Platelet-Rich Fibrin) are powerful, natural components derived from your own blood. PRP and PRF contain high concentrations of growth factors, the components responsible for most of your body’s healing properties. By combining microneedling with PRP/PRF, we catalyze the regenerative potential of growth factors to accelerate tissue repair and collagen production. This amplifies the results of microneedling, making it an excellent choice for those seeking even more remarkable improvements.

Microneedling FAQs

How does microneedling work?

Salem’s microneedling, also referred to as collagen induction therapy, induces controlled micro-injuries on the skin. Fine needles puncture the epidermis and dermis layers, prompting the release of growth factors and stimulating the body’s natural wound-healing process. This triggers the production of collagen and elastin fibers, which are crucial for skin elasticity and firmness. As the skin heals, it becomes smoother, firmer, and more youthful, reducing the appearance of scars, wrinkles, and other imperfections through skin tissue renewal.

What happens during the microneedling session?

During your microneedling session, you will first have a consultation to discuss your specific skin concerns and goals. After cleansing your skin, a numbing cream may be applied for comfort. The SkinPen device will be passed over the targeted area, creating controlled micro-injuries. The procedure is well-tolerated and usually concludes within 30 to 60 minutes. In some cases, the aesthetic provider may apply the PRP/PRF serum drawn from your blood to catalyze the results.

What are the side effects of microneedling?

After microneedling, you might experience temporary side effects like redness, mild swelling, and minor discomfort akin to a sunburn. These effects typically resolve within a few days.

Is there any downtime after microneedling?

Microneedling in Salem typically involves minimal downtime. Most people can resume their regular activities immediately after treatment, but strenuous workouts and direct sunlight should be avoided for a few days to ensure optimal results.

When will I see the microneedling results?

You’ll start noticing improvements in your skin’s texture and tone within a week or two after microneedling. However, the full benefits, including reduced fine lines and enhanced skin rejuvenation, may become more apparent over several weeks as collagen production continues.

How many microneedling sessions will I need?

The number of sessions needed varies based on your specific skin concerns and goals. Typically, a series of 3-6 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart, is recommended for optimal results. Your skincare professional can provide a personalized plan.

How long do the microneedling results last?

The duration of results from microneedling in Salem may vary, yet with appropriate skincare and maintenance; you can experience the benefits for several months to a year. Regular treatments and a good skincare routine can help prolong the effects.
