At Rock Creek Wellness in Leawood, KS, we offer alternative therapies using nanoparticle technology during our treatments to address and improve various aesthetic and medical conditions. We use our proprietary nanoparticle technology to customize treatment plans to address the unique needs of each of our patients. We offer microneedling treatments to help perfect the complexion, and by adding nanoparticle technology to the treatment, we can enhance the results and transform the skin.
Microneedling is a collagen induction therapy treatment that can perfect the skin in different ways. Our needling treatment process is different from the standard treatments you’ll find at other Med Spas because we use our proprietary nanoparticle technology during the treatment. The topical serum we apply during treatment is better and more effective than other anti-aging serums used during each treatment and can transform your complexion.
If you are looking for a simple yet effective way to address skin conditions that won’t improve with other non-invasive treatment options or your skincare routine, you may be a good candidate for microneedling with our nanoparticle technology. The growth factors and regenerative properties in our nanoparticle technology will help you address some of your most problematic skin concerns, including:
- Large pores
- Acne scars
- Lines and wrinkles
- Hollow areas
- Volume loss
- Poor skin tone
- Uneven skin texture
- Sun damage
- Stretch marks
- Surgical scars
- Dull complexion
- Skin laxity
How It Works
At Rock Creek Wellness, we use SkinPen to perform our microneedling treatments. The SkinPen is one of the most effective microneedling devices on the market that is FDA cleared to treat complexion concerns. The device uses robotic technology to repetitively stamp tiny, sterile, hair-thin needles into the skin’s surface. In doing so, it creates thousands of microchannels on the skin’s surface, which are also referred to as micro-injuries.
Initiating a Process That the Body Completes
As soon as the skin is injured, the body responds to those injuries with an immune reaction, cleansing the skin from the inside out, increasing cellular turnover, growing new skin cells, and increasing collagen and elastin production.
As the body grows new collagen and repairs the skin, replacing old, damaged skin cells with healthier, younger ones, you’ll see your complexion improve. Some skin conditions that haven’t responded to traditional skin care treatments like facials or even anti-aging products may finally improve after completing your recommended number of treatment sessions.
The Treatment Process
Before we begin the treatment process, we will apply a topical numbing cream to your skin. Since the SkinPen uses tiny needles to stamp the skin at different needle depths, we apply a pre-treatment numbing cream to ensure that you don’t feel any pain throughout the process. It takes approximately 30 minutes for your skin to go numb, and then we will begin the treatment.
We will customize your treatment before initiating the process so that we can use the right needle depths to address your area of concern. Delicate areas of the face can’t tolerate longer needles, as well as areas of the face that are more resilient and have thicker skin. We will evaluate your skin before your treatment to determine how to customize your treatment and address each concern on every area of your face.
As we repetitively stamp the skin with the SkinPen device, we will apply a topical serum to the skin containing our nanoparticle technology. Microneedling improves your skin’s absorption rate, so we’ll take advantage of this fact during the treatment.
Our proprietary nanoparticle technology contains anti-aging ingredients and growth factors that will be better absorbed into your skin during the treatment and help create visible improvements in the appearance and health of your complexion.
After your treatment, you’ll be able to resume your normal daily activities. We will make product recommendations so that you know how to care for your skin and take advantage of its temporarily increased absorption rate in the days following your treatment. We also advise patients to avoid spending any time in the sun after the treatment, especially without first applying sunscreen.
Your skin may feel red and tight following the treatment, which is completely normal, and the sensation will subside within a day’s time. Your skin may also peel, which is a sign that your body is repairing the skin and increasing the rate of cellular regeneration. If your skin does peel, avoid picking or peeling the skin yourself to avoid scarring or an adverse reaction.
Some patients begin to see improvements in their skin within several days of their initial treatment. However, the best results come from adhering to the treatment plan recommended by your technician. One session will help you achieve results, but it typically takes three to four treatments, with a few weeks between each, to adequately increase collagen production to address your area of concern.
We customize each treatment plan according to our patient’s needs. So, whether you simply want to rejuvenate your skin or treat a more severe skin concern like noticeable acne scars, we can help determine how many treatments you will need and how often you should schedule them to achieve your desired results.
