Microneedling is a non-surgical treatment in which tiny needles make microscopic skin punctures at the depth ideal for collagen induction. After microneedling with the RejuvaPen microneedling system, Novo Aesthetics infuses the skin punctures with gels, creams, and serums that stimulate beneficial effects like skin lightening, extra collagen production, and skin renewal. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP), the “golden portion” of your blood containing super-regenerative growth factors, is another popular addition to microneedling.
RejuvaPen is a medical-grade, state-of-the-art precision micro-needling device. It helps your skin become firmer and regain its elasticity. Fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced, pores become finer, circulation is stimulated, and the overall condition of your skin improves.
RejuvaPen Microneedling can treat:
- Acne scarring
- Firming and tightening most body areas
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Skin tightening and rejuvenation
- Enlarged pores
- Stretch marks
- Surgical and burn scars
RejuvaPen uses tiny needles to penetrate the skin. The sleek design allows your provider to control the speed and depth. Thousands of micro-perforations are created on the skin. As a result, the skin shifts its natural repair mechanism into high gear and starts producing collagen and elastin to repair these micro-perforations. This self-repairing property of the skin is a 100% natural form of skin renewal from the inside out. RejuvaPen’s advantage over other treatments is that it not only activates cell regeneration, it also enhances the absorption of topicals into the skin.
After the initial treatment, patients often notice that their skin has a healthy pink glow and that fine lines are diminished. Skin naturally takes roughly four weeks to synthesize new collagen, but it is not until about four months that patients can see the full effect of RejuvaPen treatments. It is suggested that patients receive four treatments, spaced at least two weeks apart.
PDO Threads Treatment
PDO threads are absorbable sutures that can lift and tighten your skin when it sags due to aging and/or weight loss. With PDO thread lifts at Novo Aesthetics, we can restore smoother face and body contours.
PDO threads are injectable threads, made from the same material as dissolvable surgical sutures. Once injected, the threads create a type of scaffolding to support and lift your skin into the desired place. PDO threads are uniquely crafted to gently connect to your underlying face or body tissue, which helps keep your skin in its new position. The threads stimulate collagen growth, which covers the sutures. Although the sutures dissolve, your new collagen stays. So, with a thread lift, you get improved skin structure lasting up to two years.
A PDO thread lift can boost your appearance (and your self-esteem) in several ways.
- Lifting, contouring, and volumizing face, jaw, and neck
- Smoothing skin wrinkles
- Toning skin on the face and body
Many patients say that a PDO thread lift gave them an overall rejuvenated appearance, one that they never imagined possible without surgery.
Novo Aesthetics does everything possible to ensure your comfort. You’ll be in control of the Pro-nox™ nitrous oxide device during your treatment, so you can administer your own pain relief whenever you need it. The majority of PDO thread lift patients tolerate the treatment very well. A brief pulling or tugging feeling (not painful) is normal.
The whole treatment lasts 10-45 minutes, depending on the size of your treatment area and how many threads you need.
As with any injections, you might experience some swelling, bruising, redness, and pinpoint bleeding. Novo Aesthetics uses the high-tech AccuVein® device to show the location of your facial blood vessels, to avoid bruising. Ice packs are a great way to relieve swelling after getting PDO threads.
You can return to work whenever you’re ready, with most patients getting back to their regular routine the same day or next day.
Radiofrequency microneedling (RF microneedling) is a noninvasive skin rejuvenation treatment that enhances the collagen-boosting effects of microneedling with the heat of radiofrequency energy. It improves skin texture and tone, pore size, fine lines, wrinkles, laxity, and acne scars, as well as stretch marks.
RF microneedling works by creating controlled microdamage that provokes a natural wound-healing response, which kick-starts the biological processes that create new collagen and elastin. Aging and environmental damage (particularly sun damage) break down these structural proteins, while the rate of replacement slows over time. RF microneedling slows and even temporarily reverses this process, helping skin look and act younger.
Microneedling with radiofrequency has minimal downtime—you can go about normal activities the day after treatment.
This anti-aging treatment is considered suitable for all skin types and tones, with little risk of burning, scarring, or pigmentation issues when it’s performed properly.
