At Modern SLC we offer 2 different types of Microneedling to give all our clients optimal results. See below to understand the differences between regular Microneedling and RF Microneedling.
How can you prepare for your Morpheus8 treatment?
Discontinue using any active exfoliants for 5-7 days before coming in for your treatment. This includes but is not limited to retinol, salicylic acid, glycolic acid, and benzoyl peroxide. The risk of having an adverse reaction may increase if you use these products too closely to receiving microneedling. Let your aesthetician know if you are taking any antibiotics or prescription medications. These may also increase your skin’s sensitivity. Avoid direct sunlight and be sure your skin is not sunburnt when you come in for your treatment. Ideally you will want to discontinue using any medications that could thin your blood and increase your chances of bruising (NSAIDs, aspirin, ibuprofen etc). Caffeine and alcohol also fall under the same category and can cause blood-thinning which can lead to more bruising. Avoid them if you can for 1-2 weeks before your appointment.
The Modern Experience
When you arrive, we begin by applying prescription-strength numbing cream on the treatment area and allow it to set for 30 minutes. Once the area is numb, we cleanse and disinfect the skin. Your comfort level is of the utmost importance to our aestheticians, and they will proceed at your pace. It is also important to discuss your priorities as this can help optimize your treatment. The handpiece is then used to treat the skin. Multiple passes are generally used for optimal benefit. Depending on the thickness of your skin, the depth and energy will vary. We also have nitrous oxide (laughing gas) on site and for a small additional cost, it can be used during your treatment if necessary. Most patients choose a series of 3 treatments spaced 6 weeks apart for best results. The entire treatment takes about 75 to 90 minutes, including the 30 minutes of numbing.
|Regular Microneedling||$350/ per treatment or a series of 3 for $899|
|RF Microneedling||$1000/ per treatment or a series of 3 for $2,500|
