From One of Our Satisfied Clients
I have just about tried it all when it comes to aesthetic treatments. I want that desirable, clear, beautiful skin that celebrities have. I found out about microneedling through a couple of my girlfriends. I decided to google instantly and set up an appointment so I can experience for myself. Non-surgical face lift??? I’m in..
I went to Allurant Medical where I was welcomed by the friendly front staff who checked me in and took my photos. I then sat in their waiting room with numbing cream on my face for about 45 minutes. The numbing cream is meant to make the treatment “comfortable.” I guess it makes sense since they are poking my face with tiny enrgized needles!
The treatment is called Scarlet RF Microneedling and it involves a doctor or nurse controlling a wand that they move across the desired treatment area. Dr. Kat was the one who performed my treatment. I learned she was and ER doctor for over 30 years and has been in aesthetics for over 10. She also is an amazing painter and artist; I can tell she has a keen eye for detail. I did my face and neck based on my initial consultation. I was looking to get rid of this “turkey neck!” The machine uses the power of microneedling and radio frequency to target the deeper layers of the skin. It creates tiny, controlled wounds to the skin at different depths. After this, your body goes to work repairing these injuries by healing and producing new collagen and elastin. Crazy the body can do that! The overall treatment took about 30 minutes. After the treatment, my face was red and inflamed so Dr Kat added something called Exosomes that will supercharge my healing and results. The downtime was minimal. I did the treatment on a Friday and was okay to be at work Monday. Dr Kat said to make sure I avoid the sun and wear lots of sunscreen, don’t want to ruin the work we did!
You usually have to do an average of three treatments spaced four weeks apart to get the best results and that you will see optimal results in six months. I still left feeling like my skin was noticeably tighter and radiant. This treatment is perfect for anyone who is committed to their healthy skin regime and anti-aging. I can’t wait to see the final results when my skin has fully recovered. I was told I can expect reduced wrinkles and fine lines, and overall more youthful appearance, improved texture/tone, and tighter lifted skin. I also struggled with acne so I have some left over scarring. Dr Kat assured me it will significantly improve.
Overall, I am so happy with my experience and feel like I have found a place where they actually care and listen to me. I can’t wait to come back!
