Do you want to improve the appearance of your skin with instant results, no downtime, and a comfortable treatment? Then the Instaglow Facial Treatment is for you.
What is the Instaglow Facial Treatment?
The Instaglow Facial Treatment uses a small vial to infuse a variety of products into your skin. The vial has a cap with twenty 24-karat gold plated needles. Each needle is 0.5 mm long and thinner than a human hair. You can barely see or feel the needles. The needles have microchannels to allow the products to infuse into your skin. The benefit of the Instaglow Facial Treatment is that it places the products directly into the surface layers of your skin. When you apply topical products, they are not absorbed enough through the outer layer of your skin. The Instaglow Facial Treatment uses tiny needles to bypass this layer and get the products where they need tot go for best results. As the vial is gently stamped on your skin, the micro needles create tiny channels in your skin and the product is deposited into your skin. Immediately after the Instaglow Facial Treatment, we apply a Hydrating Sheet Mask on your skin for a few minutes. This helps the products penetrate even better. After that we apply some ointment and sunscreen on your skin.
What can the Instaglow Facial Treatment treat?
The Instaglow Facial Treatment can be customized for each person. It treats many common concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, irregular texture, puffiness and dark undereye circles, enlarged pores, acne scars, uneven color, and redness.
A variety of ingredients can be used in the Instaglow Facial Treatment. The most common ingredient is hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring sugar that’s found in your skin. Hyaluronic acid is the same ingredient found in many fillers and skin care products. Unlike fillers where the hyaluronic acid is placed under your skin, with the Instaglow Facial Treatment, the hyaluronic acid is deposited in the surface layers of your skin. This will hydrate your skin, fill in fine lines, and make your skin glow. The Instaglow Facial Treatment allows the hyaluronic acid to penetrate deeper than when you apply it topically with skin care products. This makes the Instaglow Facial Treatment a perfect complement to fillers and skin care products that contain hyaluronic acid.
In addition, vitamins, peptides, and antioxidants can be included. These ingredients will brighten your skin and stimulate collagen and elastin product to tighten your skin. Another ingredient that is commonly included in the Instaglow Facial Treatment is Botox. But with the Instaglow Facial Treatment, the Botox works differently. It’s only being placed in the surface layers of your skin so it won’t relax muscles like when Botox is traditionally used to treat wrinkles such as frown lines - you’ll still need regular Botox or that. Instead, when Botox is placed in the surface layers of your skin it helps with texture, enlarged pores, and redness (perfect for rosacea). Also lasers are most commonly used for rosacea, the Botox in the Instaglow Facial Treatment can give you an added boost.
What areas can be treated with the Instaglow Facial Treatment?
The great thing about the Instaglow Facial Treatment is that any area on your body can be treated. The most common areas of treatment include the face, neck, chest, and backs of the hands. The Instaglow Facial Treatment is one of the only treatments that can be done on the eyelids above and below the eye. This helps with fine lines, loose skin, puffiness, and dark circles. Off the face, the Instaglow Facial Treatment can treat dry, loose, and wrinkled skin from sun damage commonly seen on the chest and hands. This is great because it will rejuvenate multiple areas so the skin on the rest of your body will look just as young as your face.
When will I see the results of my Instaglow Facial Treatment?
The best thing about the Instaglow Facial Treatment is that you see an immediate glow on your skin, and there is no recovery time. This makes the Instaglow Facial Treatment perfect the day before an important event. A series of Instaglow Facial Treatments is recommended and you’ll enjoy more and more results each treatment.
What will I look like after an Instaglow Facial Treatment?
After your Instaglow Facial Treatment, your skin may be red for a few hours, but this goes away quickly. You’ll notice a hydrated appearance and feel to your skin. The Hydrating Sheet Mask and ointment calm your skin very quickly and give you even more of a glow.
How many Instaglow Facial Treatments do I need?
Dr. Alex recommends a series of six Instaglow Facial Treatments done every two to four weeks. After that, all you need is one every three months or so to keep your skin looking youthful and radiant. However, you can really do it as often as you like. Many people have an Instaglow Facial Treatment once a month as maintenance. And if you have an important event, you can have an extra treatment the day before.
How long will the results of the Instaglow Facial Treatment last?
As with any treatment, maintenance is key. A series of Instaglow Facial Treatments is recommended and you’ll see more and more improvement with each treatment. You can go up to a year without another treatment after a series of Instaglow Facial Treatments. But most people have a maintenance treatment every three to four months.
How long does the Instaglow Facial Treatment take?
The amount of time it takes for an Instaglow Facial Treatment depends on multiple factors. The most important is the size of the area that is being treated. For example, if treating multiple areas such as the face, neck, and chest, it will take longer than just treating your face. Also, if you choose to get numbing cream, it will take longer. Most people will spend about 30 minutes to an hour in the office for an Instaglow Facial Treatment.
What is the difference between the Instaglow Facial Treatment and Microneedling?
There are two major differences between the Instaglow Facial Treatment and traditional microneedling, sometimes combined with things like PRP. First, the needles in the Instaglow Facial Treatment are much smaller and shorter. This way you don’t have bleeding like you do with traditional microneedling. The second difference is that in the Instaglow Facial Treatment, the needles have microchannels that directly deposit the products into your skin. With traditional microneedling, you have to apply products directly after the treatment so the products don’t penetrate as well into your skin.
Is the Instaglow Facial Treatment comfortable?
The needles used in the Instaglow Facial Treatment are so tiny, most people hardly feel it. It feels like a tiny pinch on your skin. Some areas may be more sensitive than others. And some people are more sensitive so we can apply numbing cream on your skin for about 15 minutes before your Instaglow Facial Treatment.
What should I do after an Instaglow Facial Treatment?
After an Instaglow Facial Treatment your skin may be mildly red for a few hours. Don’t wash your face for at least four hours because you want to allow all of the products to be infused into your skin. Don’t apply makeup or skin care products until the next day. Avoid heat exposure, alcohol consumption, and strenuous exercise for 24 hours after your Instaglow Facial Treatment. Otherwise, you can go back to work and resume your normal activities.
