Sanctuary Spa is now pleased to offer 

MICRONEEDLING 

 

In the last few years, Microneedling has become one of the most sought after treatments in the country due to its effectiveness and quick results. With as few as two treatments, Microneedling has been shown to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, age and sun spots, and stretch marks. And fellas, it can even help increase hair growth! 

Microneedling creates tiny perforations in the skin which initiate a natural healing response. These perforations cause a healthy cascade that produces new collagen and elastin resulting in firmer, healthier skin. We combine this with our all-new Microneedling solutions that are specifically formulated to trigger the collagen-producing cells in your body to go into overdrive and create permanent, new, healthy skin!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How much does it cost? 
At Sanctuary Spa, we charge $295 per region. A region would be one of the following: face, chest, arms, front of calves, back of calves, etc. Since Microneedling delivers results best in a series, we do have two package options at discounted prices:

  • 3 visits for $750 ($250 each – $135 savings!)
  • 6 visits for $1200 ($200 each – $570 savings!)

How long should I wait in between treatments?
Leave at least 1 week in between treatments when using 0.25mm needle lengths, 2 weeks for 0.5mm needle lengths, and 3-4 weeks when using 1.0mm or longer needle lengths. Treatments for hair regrowth should be performed once every week for 6 weeks.

How many treatments will I need?
Number of treatments range greatly depending on what we are treating.  For light anti-aging treatments, 1-2 treatments may be sufficient.  For deeper wrinkles and acne scarring, 4-6 treatments may be required to achieve desired results.  There is no limit to the number of treatments that one can receive as long as adequate time passes in between each treatment.

What will this improve the appearance of?
Fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne scarring, [non-raised] keloid scarring, stretch marks, hair loss, and rosacea.

How long is the down time?
Wait a minimum of 90 minutes before applying anything else to this skin including sunscreen, makeup, moisturizer, and anything apart from the microneedling solution used during your treatment.  Typically, it then takes 24-72 hours for all redness and pinprick scabbing to disappear.  

How should a patient’s face look immediately following a treatment?
There is a very wide range of normal reactions.  Anything from little to no reaction, to a deep red flush, to pinpoint bleeding is normal.  Since this is a non-ablative procedure, more extreme reactions do not necessarily correspond to more extreme results.

How long before I can expect to see results?
In some cases, as soon as 2-3 weeks. For more extreme results, expect to start to see results after 2-3 treatments.  For hair regrowth, it can take up to a month following the last of the 6 treatment series to see results.

Are there any contraindications?
As long as proper procedure is followed, there are no other contraindications besides standards such as pregnancy.  However, it is best to stop the use of retinoids at least a day before treatment.

Can I combine this with other treatments?
Typically combining treatments will result in more aggressive treatments and longer downtimes.  Never do another treatment within 90 minutes after Microneedling.
