Patient Receives A Microneedling Co2 Resurfacing Treatment And Describes Her Experience

We are doing a microneedling CO2 resurfacing.
This beautiful lady, say Hello.
Hello. How do you feel?
I feel very comfortable.
Okay. What made you feel comfortable?
The numbing cream.
Rubbing it on twice. Right.
Now this is not painful whatsoever.
Yeah. So here are our 36 gold needles. You can see how deep they are.
They penetrate the epidermis and go down in the dermis with heat.
We have it set on if you want to look here.
The RF time is the highest that we can go of eight milliseconds.
The depth is the highest we can go. The level’s a very good level.
We could go up on the level,
but you can tell that this is a good enough level for her to tolerate.
I make sure I do a 50 50 pass.
I do not rush through a procedure.
I make sure that you get your money’s worth with every little needle stick.
This is where we’re going to build collagen, elastin, help acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, improve tone, texture, help lift nasal labial folds, jowling.
I will go over her face three times and we vary the depth according to the area that we’re in. So we do the cheek, we’ll do the jawline, we’ll do around the mouth, the nose, around the eyes, forehead, all at different depths and all at different amounts of heating.
You can actually see that grip of skin right there.
What did you think after your first results, Mary?
My first results were pretty amazing, actually.
I noticed it probably about four days later after the sandpapery feeling went away. But no, I noticed the accordion lines in my cheeks weren’t as deep.

These right here.
Yep. They were not as deep and I felt they looked much younger.

Yeah. This is a really wonderful procedure.
Yay. Are you glad you did it?
Oh, absolutely.

And I would recommend anyone else to do it.
Yay. Thank you, Mary. Bye.
