Are You Stressed About Your Skin?

woman-looking-mirror-aesthetics-thumbnail.jpgIt’s not vanity, it’s a real issue!  Your skin is one of the first things that people notice about you.  It tells a story of your life.  Is it dusty, dry and wrinkled?  Or is it vibrant, elastic and glowing?  Your skin is not just pre-determined by fate. The good news is that your skin has great regenerative abilities given the right conditions. You can change the appearance of your skin with some simple, natural therapies. 


Everywhere you see ads for facial injections and treatments promising a new youthful you! Many of these therapies come at the cost of injecting unnatural substances into your skin. What if there was a very natural way to improve the appearance of your skin? 


SkinPen microneedling device-min.jpgEnter micro-needling, a natural collagen induction therapy offered at Longevity Medical. Micro-needling is the process of making small intentional microchannels in the face and neck which signal the body to come and repair the area treated.  In plain terms, your body sends more collagen and elastin to improve the appearance of the skin making it stronger and more vibrant than before!  Best results seen with 3 treatments spaced a month apart.


Some of the best candidates for micro-needling treatments:

-      Acne scarred skin

-      Aging skin that is lax and lifeless

-      Fine lines and exaggerated expression lines

-      Melasma and hyperpigmentation

-      Preventative therapy so you do not get the above!


There are only a few contraindications for micro-needling and they include those patients with active acne, on chemotherapy or blood thinners, those with a tendency to keloid scarring and a note of caution for those who suffer from cold sores.  Because the area around the lips is treated (and you want it treated!), it has a small potential to bring on an outbreak.  This can easily be minimized with pre-treatment. 


Mature-Woman-portrait.jpgWhat is even more exciting is that the effects can be enhanced with the application of platelet-rich plasma or amnion stem cell growth factors during the treatment.  There is no need for unnatural therapies to look your best!
