What is a Medical Spa?

A medical spa, or med spa, combines traditional spa experiences with medical procedures overseen by licensed physicians. These types of facilities offer a variety of non-invasive cosmetic treatments such as Botox injections, laser hair removal, and microdermabrasion to improve skin health and appearance. Unlike conventional spas, medical spas provide more advanced services that require medical expertise. CVLC provides this and more at our med spa by Buffalo.

Experience Microdermabrasion at our Med Spa

Microdermabrasion is a technique for skin refinement developed in the late 1990s. Tiny crystals of aluminum oxide are administered to the surface of the skin at a high flow rate and are then gently vacuumed off. This treatment leads to even, controlled shedding of the aged and sun-damaged skin for a smoother, more polished look. Patients say that makeup is applied easier, and they appear more youthful. Usually, a series of five to eight sessions performed at two to three-week intervals achieves optimal results. Most patients continue to undergo maintenance enhancement sessions as advised by our physicians.

What Can Dermapen Treat?

Microneedling with Dermapen may be used to provide:

  • A reduction in wrinkles and fine lines
  • Skin tightening and rejuvenation
  • The improved appearance of acne, surgical, and trauma scars
  • The minimization of stretch marks and hyperpigmentation

The Dermapen provides incredible collagen induction and harnesses the body’s natural ability to regrow and heal the skin after micro-damage. It is an FDA-approved device that provides greater results than a traditional roller and is said to be a more comfortable way to induce collagen. The depth of the needle penetration can be adjusted during the treatment, so the device can easily be worked around sensitive areas with minimal to no discomfort.

How Does The Treatment Work?

The Dermapen is a small hand-held device that contains tiny needles that puncture minuscule channels into your skin. The action of the pen makes your skin think it is being attacked, and this forces it to produce collagen and elastin. Before the treatment, a topical anesthetic cream can be applied to the target area and left to work until your skin has been numbed.

The device has controlled precision, encouraging the three phases of CIT (Collagen Induction Therapy), which ultimately results in new collagen.

  • Phase 1: Injury
  • Phase 2: Tissue proliferation
  • Phase 3: Tissue remodeling
