Microneedling and Vi Peel

 

What is microneedling?

Microneedling or collagen induction therapy is a cosmetic treatment that uses a special tool to create thousands of tiny, invisible puncture wounds on the surface of your skin. The wounds activate your skin’s natural healing response, which triggers collagen production.

Restoring Health Medical Institute, Inc. performs microneedling on the face and body to address many beauty concerns, including:

  • Acne scars and other types of scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Fine or deep lines and wrinkles
  • Large pores
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Loose, saggy skin

Restoring Health Medical Institute, Inc. uses the COSMOPen™ for microneedling treatments. 

What can I expect during microneedling?

Microneedling at Restoring Health Medical Institute, Inc. takes about an hour. To reduce discomfort, your provider applies a numbing cream to your skin prior to your treatment. 

After microneedling, you may experience some redness at the site of treatment. These side effects subside within three to four days. Your aesthetic expert at Restoring Health Medical Institute, Inc. recommends you stay out of the sun for at least one week following microneedling. 

You may notice an improvement in your skin after your first microneedling session. However, Restoring Health Medical Institute, Inc. recommends three to four treatments for optimal results. 

What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels are a cosmetic treatment that improves the appearance of your skin. The chemical solution exfoliates the surface of your skin, revealing the younger, smoother, and healthier skin underneath. 

Restoring Health Medical Institute, Inc. offers the VI Peel as a gentle medical-grade chemical peel that’s safe for all skin types.

How long is recovery following a chemical peel?

Recovery following a chemical peel at Restoring Health Medical Institute, Inc. varies. Usually, peeling starts about two to three days after your treatment and continues for another three to four days. Full recovery following a chemical peel may take one to two weeks. 

You can apply makeup during your recovery. However, Restoring Health Medical Institute, Inc. recommends you avoid using makeup during the first 24 hours after a chemical peel and use sunscreen daily after your treatment. 

How many chemical peels do I need?

You may notice a significant improvement in your skin after your first chemical peel. However, Restoring Health Medical Institute, Inc. recommends a series of at least three peels set at four to six-week intervals to get the best results.
