With age the moisture in our skin, otherwise known as hyaluronic acid, begins to deplete. With the loss of moisture we also see a slow-down in the production of collagen and elastin, three very important ingredients that keep our skin looking healthy, youthful, and radiant.
When we start to lose these three key ingredients we start to see an increase in fine lines, wrinkles, a loss of radiance, patchy or rough textures, and this can result in a dullness or general lackluster quality of the skin. This is why we offer the Microneedling Beauty Booster with Redensity I treatment.
How does Microneedling Beauty Booster with Redensity I work?
The combination of Redensity I and micro needling makes this treatment one of our most powerful beauty boosters. It will deeply hydrate and revitalize your skin, improve elasticity, will smooth out those textures, and brighten your skin.
Redensity I is an award-winning, non-cross linked hyarluonic acid (HA). HA is a naturally-occurring substance already present in our bodies, and holds 1000 times its own weight in water adding that much needed hydration to the skin.
In addition to hyaluronic acid, Redensity I also includes enriching vitamins and minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants, all of which combine to not only deeply hydrate the skin but also stimulate the natural production of collagen and elastin in the body.
The treatment gives your skin an extra boost by combining the use of microneedling with Redensity I. By injecting Redensity I via numerous tiny injections it stimulates the body into a wound healing response, producing more collagen and more elastin.
What areas can be treated via Microneedling Beauty Booster with Redensity I?
We can effectively treat the face, neck, décolleté, and hands.
The treatment takes about 15-20 minutes and your expert injector will begin by applying a topical numbing agent to ensure you are comfortable throughout the entire procedure. With a revolutionary new device called the V2 pen, your provider will deliver Redensity I filler by making a series of tiny, accurate, and precise injections into the skin.
Your body will then begin to work at repairing those tiny injections by producing more elastin and collagen, which will in turn strengthen and thicken your skin improving its overall quality and texture.
Prior to the procedure you will need to avoid taking any non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDS), Vitamin E, aspirin, St. John’s Wort, as well as avoid drinking alcohol as this could increase the likeliness of bruising and bleeding.
We also recommend that you drink lots of water before treatment and remain well-hydrated in the 24 hours following the procedure.
Is Microneedling Beauty Booster with Redensity I for you?
We highly recommend that you book an in-person complimentary consultation with one of our MD injectors in order to discuss your aesthetic goals, and assess whether this is the right treatment for you.
At the MD Beauty Clinic we strive to create a personalized treatment plan that is right for you. At your consultation your provider will ask you about your medical history and about any medications you are currently taking.
This treatment is generally great for all skin types. Men and women aged 20+ looking to combat aging skin, acne scarring, melasma (effective with a combination treatment plan), hyper-pigmentation, and fine lines and wrinkles, are good candidates for this treatment.
Who should not consider having Microneedling Beauty Booster with Redensity I?
We don’t recommend dermal fillers for anyone who is currently pregnant or breastfeeding, but not to worry, if you did get a treatment before you knew you were pregnant, there’s nothing to worry about. It’s unlikely that fillers have an impact on the developing fetus or a breastfeeding child, but we just don’t have the research to support that.
Allergic reactions to the dermal fillers we use (which are all hyaluronic acid) are very rare, but if you know that you are allergic to any of the proteins used to make hyaluronic acid you should avoid this treatment. Additional contraindications include: anyone who has a bleeding disorder or severe allergic reactions.
We won’t want to inject anyone who has an active injury near the injection site.
When can I expect to see results?
You can expect to see results within 10-14 days of treatment. You need to allow your body time to naturally produce the collagen and elastin that will revitalize your skin. You will also see a great improvement in your overall skin quality once you have received all three treatments.
Will I need more than one treatment?
We conduct 3 treatments spaced 3 weeks apart. After your series of three treatments you can repeat the procedure once or twice a year to maintain your glowing results.
Are there any side effects?
You can expect slight bleeding during treatment. Following treatment you might experience some swelling, bruising, and redness around the treated area which should resolve itself within two weeks. Some patients may also feel a burning sensation at the sites of injection, which should resolve itself quite soon after the procedure.
Some patients also experience some social down-time following this treatment. You may see small raised bumps that last 24-72 hours post treatment. So definitely don’t plan to get this done a day or two before a big event. We also recommend that you avoid wearing make-up and any strenuous exercise for 24 hours following your treatment.
How much does it cost?
Microneedling Beauty Booster with Redensity I costs $1,800 for 3 treatments at 3 week intervals. Yearly maintenance treatments are offered at $600 per treatment.
