Micro-Needling

A New Way to Make Collagen

The process is called Collagen Induction Therapy and is used to improve

Texture and tone

Surface scarring

Fine wrinkles

How Does it Work?

 

Micro needling is based on the use of tiny needles to create micro channels (tiny holes) in the skin.  The process stimulates your skin’s natural ability to heal itself and in the process produces collagen and elastin.

This repair process begins almost immediately and results in a thicker dermis and softened wrinkles or scars.

The small channels in the epidermis close very quickly and the skin begins a healing response right away. Depending on the depth of the skin defect, you may see only redness or you may experience some pinpoint bleeding which stops almost immediately.

 

An Outstanding Product Absorption Booster

These superficial micro-channels also allow topical gels, creams and serums to be absorbed more effectively into the skin. Specific treatment products can be selected to achieve accelerated results. We’ll employ various topicals depending upon your needs

  • Hyaluronic serums
  • Lightening or bleaching serums
  • Stem cells to multiply new young cells
  • Vitamin C for strengthening and antioxidant boost

Is Micro Needling new?

Micro needling has been used for decades in Europe in various forms, from blocked stamps to hand rollers to the new automated pens that make the process fast, consistent and for the most part, quite comfortable. Only in recent years have the public and physicians embraced the concept. (It’s almost as if something so simple couldn’t possibly work well, right?) But we’re discovering that this simple action of creating a tiny wound without heat or any other high technology works remarkably well.

What does microneedling feel like?

The high-speed motor causes the needle penetration to occur very quickly which means it will feel more like a sandpaper sensation than needles. Some patients describe it as similar as the feel of a cat’s tongue. Scar treatments require longer needles which invade “nerve space” and thus, produce more sensation.

How Is Microneedling different from Dermal Rollers?

Automated micro-needling devices move in a vertical direction for better precision when treating the skin. Manual needle rollers do not create a precise vertical action and many of these rollers are made from inferior metals which are not smooth and it is impossible to sterilize them at home.

The lack of precision and sterilization issues can contribute to inconsistent effects to the skin, plus the risk of infection when the skin is not antiseptically cleansed.

How Is Microneedling different from Lasers?

The pen breaks up pigment mechanically instead of with light and remodels the collagen without heat. Removing heat from the equation makes for a safer, more comfortable treatment with a very low complication rate.

No heat also equals less downtime! Most people are red for 24 hours or less. That advantage means you can get the procedure performed on a Friday and be back to normal for work on Monday.

Miro-Needling with PRP

PRP Therapy with MicroNeedling

 

Topical PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Therapy utilize microneedling to advance the healing of lasers and resurfacing treatments. PRP treatments are also used to boost the freshness of the skin and improve skin texture and tone. 

Why we use the automated MicroPen

 

  • Micro pen is able to deliver a predictable healing experience.
  • Micro pen uses sterile single-use surgical grade disposable needle tips. There is no potential for cross contamination between patients because there is never a re-use of needles.
  • Adjustable needle penetration depths allows us to choose a custom treatment program for your specific skin problems and preferences for treatment aggressiveness.
  • Micro needling is safe for ALL skin types. This is a boost for skins that have a tendency to over react to heat based treatments or those with ultra sensitive skins which do not tolerate heat treatments well.

After the treatment

You’ll likely look as if you have a sunburn following treatment. This can last the rest of the day, to several days or a week depending on treatment depth.  Treat your skin gently and refrain from acid-containing products for a week or longer.

 

 Orchard Signature Peel

Refine your skin with time-proven chemical peels

Skin Peels are used to improve and smooth the texture of your facial skin using a chemical solution.

Used as a form of exfoliation and collagen stimulation, the Orchard Signature Skin Peel is recommended for anyone dealing with aging, dull, sun-damaged, dry or oily acne-prone skin.

It is important to follow all instructions for pre-treatment and post-treatment for favorable results.

Pre-treat with Obagi NuDerm skin care products one month prior to peel or laser procedures for best results.

Discontinue use of Retin-A (Tretinion) and all retinoid products 7 days prior to having chemical peels.

The sun in Colorado is intense year-round, so please wear a mineral based SPF 50 and shield your newly peeled skin from the sun as much as possible.  Hyperpigmented skin (darkening areas) can occur if you are not well protected or are exposed to excessive heat.

The Procedure

Skin peeling acid is applied to remove the outer layers of the skin, affecting the surface appearance. Initially the face is cleansed and prepped to condition the skin for an even absorption of the chemical. The chemical peel solution is applied in an even layer on face and neck using medical cotton gauze.  A second layer may be applied to achieve desired results.  Your comfort and desired outcome are always our top priority.  You will be asked by your aesthetician for your feedback during the procedure. The peel treatment usually takes 20 to 30 minutes from start to finish.  You will be covered in a thick layer of sunscreen at the end of treatment and given home-care instructions. This peel procedure may be repeated once every six weeks.

 

 Dermaplaning

Go ahead, go “under the knife”!

In this case, the “knife” doesn’t cut your skin, it instead is held at an angle and safely, painlessly removes dead skin cells and the peach fuzz that shows up so annoyingly well in the sunlight.

  • Dull skin? Gone
  • Peach fuzz? Gone
  • Flaky skin? Gone
 

Immediately see more radiant skin that’s softer than you can imagine. Enjoy this medical-grade exfoliation that transforms your skin during a luxurious 45-minute treatment where we incorporate our finest products to leave your face refreshed, brighter, smoother and more beautiful.

Following dermaplaning, your skin is incredibly smooth. Makeup glides on, skin care products absorb better and you’ll find yourself appreciating your baby-smooth face.

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz).

Because dermaplaning is a quick procedure with few to no adverse effects, it has quickly gained popularity among cosmetic medical providers across the country. Using a blade and a delicate touch, we skim the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes. No pain, no cutting, no bleeding.

This is a great treatment for anyone wanting a deeper exfoliation. Pregnant or nursing moms are especially fond of dermaplaning because it exfoliates without the use of chemicals. It is also a first choice for people who have excess hair (peach fuzz) on the skin. Hair will NOT grow back heavier and darker after dermaplaning. It will grow back at the same rate and texture as before the treatment.

 Diamond Microdermabrasion

Diamond microdermabrasion uses a diamond incrusted wand and vacuum suction to manually resurface and remove dead skin cells from the outer surface of the skin. Commonly used on your face, neck, chest and backs of hands.

Microdermabrasion exfoliates the outermost layer of skin, exposing living skin cells that are soft, smooth and receptive to nutrients. The underlying epidermis is also stimulated by abrasion and vacuum. This promotes generation of new collagen that thickens the dermis and improves resistance to the effects of aging.

Microdermabrasion is Ideal for Many Skin Concerns

The procedure has proven to be clinically effective for dry or oily skin, fine lines and wrinkles, sun damaged skin, hyper pigmentation, acne prone skin, surface comedone removal and scar tissue reduction (scar improvement requires aggressive levels).

Benefits of Microdermabrasion

  • non-invasive
  • painless
  • no recovery time
  • treats all skin types
  • provides instant gratification and an immediate, noticeable effect
