Skin RN Aesthetics offers a unique medical facial treatment called a MicroAblation that combines several popular facial techniques to exfoliate and nourish the skin, while also inducing skin tightening and collagen production with our radio frequency MicroAblation system. This facial is very different than any other than we offer, but has been a long time favorite of our clients and staff.
What is MicroAblation?
MicroAblation is a unique medical facial treatment that combines several popular facial procedures in order to get a more dramatic result than a traditional facial. However, a MicroAblation goes one step further by stimulating collagen production by combining bi-polar radio frequency with saline solution.
How MicroAblation Works
During your treatment, the aesthetician glides an electrode wand tip over the skin that is charged with radio frequency. Also connected to the wand tip is IV tubing which supplies sterile normal saline solution to the electrode. When the saline solution and the electrode come in contact, a "plasma field" is created. The result is a gaseous field that is able to penetrate to the dermis (the deeper second layer of skin) causing the skin cells to separate on a molecular level.
The "micro-separation" that occurs at this moment causes your skin cells to perceive a minor injury, even though your skin won't look or feel injured. But once your skin cells perceive this separation as an injury, they are stimulated to make collagen in order to "heal" the injury.
Why Should You Consider A MicroAblation Treatment?
MicroAblation is great for someone who wants to go deeper than a microdermabrasion or chemical peel, but doesn't want to experience the downtime associated with more aggressive procedures like laser skin resurfacing.
This unique treatment can be added on to any facial, but it's most effective when used in conjunction with microdermabrasion to first remove unwanted dead skin cells.
That's why our full MicroAblation treatment includes a microdermabrasion or light chemical peel, and a mask.
