Stimulate Collagen with Microneedling in Neenah, WI
As we age, the natural process of collagen loss becomes increasingly apparent, contributing to changes in the skin’s structure and appearance. Collagen, a protein responsible for providing strength and elasticity to the skin, tends to diminish over time due to various factors. This is where microneedling can move mountains for skin. Microneedling promotes skin rejuvenation and can improve the appearance of various skin concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and uneven texture.
Microneedling is an aesthetic procedure that involves the use of a device equipped with tiny, fine needles to create controlled micro-injuries on the skin’s surface. Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling stimulates the body’s natural wound healing process, leading to the production of collagen and elastin.
We offer two different modalities to deliver microneedling treatments that will restore and revive your skin, SkinPen and Vivace.. Elizabeth will consult with you prior to your initial treatment to help determine which modality will be best suited to your skin type, concerns, and goals. With either treatment modality, the skin is prepped and a prescription topical numbing ointment is applied for about 20-30 minutes prior to treatment. We ensure maximum comfort!
SkinPen creates micro-channels (microscopic holes) at a rate of 1600 per second. These wounds stimulate your skin, kicking the healing process into high gear. Best of all, SkinPen doesn’t rely on heat or chemicals, so the results are natural and safe for all skin tones and types*. SkinPen is the first FDA-cleared microneedling device that delivers proven safe and effective results, providing benefits that last up to six months. The cherry on top? There’s minimal downtime with microneedling with SkinPen.
The Vivace Experience® is an unrivaled, first-of-its-kind treatment approach that combines microneedling and radiofrequency energy. This combination of controlled micro injuries while simultaneously delivering heat, not only helps with fine lines and wrinkles and tone and texture, but it also helps with skin laxity and tightening! The Vivace Experience® provides the most dramatic results with minimal downtime. These results will improve over time and are enhanced with multiple treatments. With results you can see, you’ll look and feel your best at any age.**

Is There Downtime With Microneedling?
Both Vivace and SkinPen have minimal downtime associated with treatment. One can expect to be pink/red upon completion. Some pinpoint bleeding may occur. The skin may feel tight and dry, almost like a sunburn. This is very normal. We highly recommend our post-procedure “youth juice”, Plated. This serum contains regenerative exosomes that are shelf stable. Applying this serum immediately post-procedure will not only significantly enhance results, but also diminish any downtime. With the use of Plated serum, most people’s redness is resolved within 24 hours, sometimes even less! If you opt to forgo Plated serum, redness generally resolves within 72 hours. While the skin is healing, we advise avoiding heavy exercise, saunas, or sun exposure. Plated serum is available to purchase in-studio, at the time of treatment.
