Highlights

  • Microneedling is a collagen induction therapy. What we’re doing is creating little micro injuries into the skin to help the skin repair itself.
  • We use a mechanical pen. The needles vibrate in and out very quickly, puncturing the skin, creating little micro injuries. By doing that, it increases that cellular turnover. And then we can target anything from fine lines to pigment to scarring.
  • PRP is your own platelet rich plasma. While you’re waiting for your treatment, we take a vial of your own blood, and then we put it in a machine that spins the blood down. And then what’s left is what we call the “liquid gold”. That is what actually gets applied to the skin during your Microneedling treatment. As we’re Microneedling the skin, the PRP drives down into the skin deeply to help that repair mechanism.
  • The treatment itself takes about two hours when you come in from start to finish. Most patients start seeing results even with the first treatment. And the more you do, the more you’re going to see, and get to that end result that you’re looking for.
  • A couple of phrases that people love to hear are “minimally invasive” and “safe”. Microneedling is both. It’s very effective.

Jan:

Hi everyone, it’s Jan D’Atri. I’ve been working with Red Mountain Weight Loss for quite some time now, sharing delicious clean eating recipes with you so that you can succeed on your weight loss journey, and love the food that you’re eating in the process. But today I want to talk to you about something very different that’s happening here at Red Mountain Weight Loss. I’m going to share my own personal experience with something called Microneedling because here at Red Mountain Weight Loss not only do they help you succeed at losing weight, but they also have all the tools to help you tone and shape your body and to have the beautiful glowing skin you’ve always wanted. This leads me to my story. All my adult life, I’ve tried to repair the skin damage the sun damage caused by growing up in Lake Tahoe. We would ski all winter long, no sunscreen, hanging out on the beach all summer until we got fried, and again, no sunscreen. I have spent thousands of dollars trying to find products to repair that sun damage. Well, fast forward to today at Red Mountain Weight Loss. Never in my wildest dreams would I imagine somebody coming up to me and saying, “Jan, your skin looks like porcelain!” Well, it has nothing to do with all the products. It has everything to do with Microneedling, here at Red Mountain Weight Loss. Wow! To say I’m thrilled beyond belief is an understatement. In fact, I’ve been on the air 44 years, I don’t think I ever voluntarily asked the cameraman to zoom in closer– but I can do that now! I want you to meet the skincare specialist who made it happen for me. Come and meet Jamie. This is Jamie Fox. She is the lead licensed aesthetician and also the certified laser technician here in the Med Spa at Red Mountain Weight Loss. Let’s talk about the service that changed everything for me– Microneedling. What is it? And how does it work?

Jamie:

Microneedling is basically a collagen induction therapy, that’s what it used to be called. What we’re doing is creating little micro injuries into the skin to help the skin repair itself.

Jan:

And how does that work?

Jamie:

We use a mechanical pen. The needles basically vibrate in and out very quickly, puncturing the skin, just creating little micro injuries. By doing that, it increases that cellular turnover. And then we can target anything from fine lines to pigment to scarring.

Jan:

Jamie, I was amazed at the one area of Microneedling that you do here. And that is to use my own cells, my own plasma to rejuvenate my own skin. Tell me about that process.

Jamie:

So what that is, is PRP, it’s your own platelet rich plasma. While you’re waiting for your treatment, we take a vial of your own blood, and then we put it in a machine that spins the blood down. And then what’s left is what we call the “liquid gold”. That is what actually gets applied to the skin during your Microneedling treatment. As we’re Microneedling the skin, the PRP drives down into the skin deeply to help that repair mechanism.

Jan:

Amazing. How long are the treatments? And when can we see results?

Jamie:

The treatment itself takes about two hours when you come in from start to finish. Most patients start seeing results even with the first treatment. And the more you do, the more you’re going to see, and get to that end result that you’re looking for.

Jan:

I came to you in our consultation and I said, “Jamie, I’m really specific about what I want. I just want glowing skin, and I want it to look vibrant.” And you chose Microneedling for me. Why?

Jamie:

I chose Microneedling for you for a few reasons. One, it was your first treatment with us. But also you you wanted very little downtime as well. Microneedling is a great treatment option for those patients that just need a little bit of downtime. Usually, you’re down just that first day with a little bit of redness. But overall, it’s a great treatment for any skin type. A couple of phrases that people love to hear are “minimally invasive” and “safe”. Microneedling is both. It’s very effective. It increases that cellular turnover. Then, we can target anything from fine lines to pigment to scarring, and even some surgical scars.

Jan:

Now I have had three treatments. Is that typical?

Jamie:

Typically, when we start with patients we always assess. We’ll do three treatments, and reassess where you’re at, at that point. It does depend what we’re targeting or working on specifically.

Jan:

I mean, it’s amazing. I literally walked out of here, and I really didn’t even need to put makeup on, or anything. You just start experiencing this glow! You wash your face and your face glows. You know, I had I talked to you about my pores, and it’s just done amazing thing to it. Once we’re done with the Microneedling sessions, what’s next? How do we keep our skin looking beautiful?

Jamie:

One of the important things with any treatment that we do here is your home care. That’s why we recommend to every individual, their own personal home care treatment plan, because that’s what’s going to help keep your investment and your skin strong.

Jan:

Absolutely. For your free consultation, or to find out more information about Microneedling and all the other services the Med Spa here at Red Mountain Weight Loss provides, you can call 1-800-239-7830 or visit redmountainweightloss.com.
