Collagen Builder through Microneedling
Microneedling is Collagen Induction Therapy. Glo Skin Spa uses the most effective therapeutic device called microneedling device, or Rejuvapen. This is a device that uses tiny needles to puncture the skin to help build collagen.
How does it work?
Ever burn your arm or hand from cooking? After the pain goes away, you probably noticed new skin emerging from beneath the burned skin. It looks like the old skin, but most likely more plump and rejuvenated. This is because when skin is damaged, whether by accident or on purpose (i.e., microneedling), the new skin emerging underneath is healing, additionally, forcing the body and skin to produce new collagen. Collagen can be found in the skin, bones, cartilage, tendons, blood vessels, etc. As early as the age of 30, our production of collagen is reduced, which is the reason we are all on the quest to replace it!
Skin Types Treated
Most skin types are candidates for microneedling. Typically, we see the best results with all type of skin
In addition to the entire face, microneedling is also done on the neck, decollete, hands, and any other areas that may have scaring or collagen loss. Our experts at Glo will deliberately numb the areas prior to treatment. For those that suffer from scarring or pigmentation, microneedling can be very effective. Depending on the severity, results can be visible after the first treatment. Typically, it will take a few treatments to see the visible benefits.
No makeup and wash with cool water and a mild cleanser for the first 24 hours post microneedling procedure. The redness typically subsides in 2-4 days then normal face cleansing routine can be done.
Why Micorneedling is Different at Glo
At Glo, we use a combination of three essential ingredients, which provide the best collagen-building results. We combine growth factors, peptides and hyaluronic acid serum which is spread onto the face prior to the (Rejuvapen) micro needling procedure. When the tiny needles break the surface of the skin, this allows the growth factors, peptides and hyaluronic acid to penetrate deeper into the skin for a better result, therefore increasing the collagen rebuild of the skin.
