  1. Now Offering Microneedling!

    Comments Off on Now Offering Microneedling!

    Radiant Day Spa now offers Microneedling! This is an incredible multi-purpose treatment, also called collagen induction therapy (CIT), and percutaneous collagen induction (PCI), targets everything from acne scars to hair loss. Microneedling has become a popular treatment because it uses the body’s own healing capabilities to promote the regeneration of normal healthy tissue. A popular example of this is to vastly reduce the visibility of stretch marks after pregnancy. Additionally you can treat acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, skin texture, pore size, brown spots, stretch marks, and pigment issues.

    How It Works

    The process of microneedling is that a professional technician inserts a pad of short, very fine needles using a small hand-held device called a dermapen into the skin, which begins to trigger the natural regenerative capabilities of your body. These ultra-fine needles penetrate the skin in range of .05 to 2.5 mm. This process promotes the natural production of collagen which then starts to reduce signs of scarring or discoloration for a wide variety of skin conditions.

    While this can seem daunting, it is a proven and simple process. We begin by applying a local numbing agent near the treatment area and the needles only penetrate the epidermal layer.

    Microneedling also promises improvement over time. According to a 2008 study, skin treated with four microneedling sessions spaced one month apart produced up to a 400% increase in collagen and elastin six months after completing treatment. An additional recent study 100 test subjects were divided into two groups; one set was treated with minoxidil lotion and the other received minoxidil lotion plus microneedling. After 12 weeks, 82 percent of the microneedling group reported 50 percent improvement versus 4.5 percent of the minoxidil lotion-only group.

  2. Remove Skin Irregularities Non-Invasively

    Comments Off on Remove Skin Irregularities Non-Invasively

    We are SO excited to share with you that Radiant Day Spa now offers services to remove skin irregularities in a safe, non-invasive way! Quickly and permanently remove common skin irregularities from your face and body. It works by a process known as electrodessication, which uses electricity to dehydrate skin abnormalities that then heal normally, revealing healthy skin. This is very similar to how a dermatologist might use liquid nitrogen to achieve a similar result.

    This is not an operating tool, it is not invasive, and there is no blood. It treats topically on the skin through a small probe specifically in areas that we want to address, such as skin tags. We first treat the area with a topical numbing agent such as lidocaine for 15 to 20 minutes, and then through desired areas to permanently remove undesired skin irregularities.


    What We Use

    The device that we use is called the Perfect Touch. It is a simple, compact device that uses a high frequency electrical current to deliver a precise electrical spark through micro electric probe to dehydrate a skin growth. Therefore the the client doesn’t need to be grounded. Results are seen almost immediately and all treatment are permanent. This process begins dehydrating the skin abnormality. This process is topical and is not invasive. The treated will scab over within a day and heal naturally with new healthy skin will return and gradually take on the color of the surrounding tissue.

    This works with all skin types and pigments for both men and women.

    Questions You Might Have

    Does It Hurt?

    The treatment is best described as slightly uncomfortable because it is an electrical current being applied to a small part of your skin. We apply a topical numbing agent, such as lidocaine, to the area that we are treating, which eliminates most of the discomfort.

    How Long Does it Take to Heal?

    This depends on the size of the area treated, but the process will be similar to if you had a cut or scrape. The area that is treated will turn red and then scab over, and then it will heal naturally. Once the scabbed area nuturally falls aways to reveal healthy skin, the pigment will slowly match the existing area within several days to a week.

    How Many Treatments are Required?

    Results are instantaneous for treated areas and no other treatments are required unless there are additional abnormalities you would like to remove.
