FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

ABOUT Microneedling

Our microneedling involves the use of a device containing a fine needle, which is used to lightly puncture the skin, creating a controlled “perceived injury.” Each puncture creates a micro-channel to trigger your body’s “wound response,” forcing the body to produce new collagen, elastin, fibroblasts and capillaries. It not only treats the superficial layers of your skin, microneedling restores the deeper layers without the damaging effects of laser or surgery, or without removing the upper layers of skin.

Misti began her career training as Collagen Restoration Therapist with one the developers of microneedling, who worked in conjunction with the Grossman Burn Center. These treatments were developed to help with post-surgical wound treatment, and scar revision for burn patients. Misti then began using these techniques for anti-aging treatments, scar reduction and acne patients, using her proprietary blend of plant-derived peptides. Clients that come from around the U.S. for her specialized treatments. She trains physicians and medspas in her techniques.

 

HOW IS THIS TREATMENT DIFFERENT THAN OTHERS?

Misti has developed a technique that results in a targeted, precise and effective treatment, specific to your individual skin concerns. There’s no “one-size-fits-all” approach at Ideal Skin Clinic. We create a treatment plan that is customized to your skin and your needs, and the results are healthy, refreshed, radiant skin!

IS MICRONEEDLING SAFE FOR ALL SKIN TYPES?

Yes and in fact, our microneedling approach that has been tested for years. This treatment works on all skin types and ethnicities, and is the least likely to create pigmentation issues, unlike lasers, peels and surgery.

WHAT IS A peptide?

Peptides are one of the most effective treatment ingredients to combat aging skin. These active molecules – a strain of amino acids that are similar to proteins – work by penetrating the top layer of the skin and sending specific signals to our cells to let them know how to function.

Peptides act as “keys” or “switches,” which turn on or off specific processes in the body. They are responsible for signaling, in order to improve or enhance the way our body works, whether it be to help us heal more quickly, and to feel better.

Each peptide has a specific job in order to achieve a specific result on the skin, In the case of skincare, we use peptides to increase collagen, tighten, tone, lift, correct dark spots, calm acne, repair Rosacea, hydration, stop inflammation, and heal tissue.

WHat are plant-derived peptides superior?

We use only plant-derived peptides. Not only are they key to diminishing lines and wrinkles, resulting in younger, firmer skin, they are also eco-friendly and great for the environment. They’re the most effective way to turn back the hands of time!

ABOUT CELLUSTRIOUS® HAIR FOLLICLE REJUVENATION

WHAT DOES CELLUSTRIOUS® CONTAIN?
Cellustrious® is a patent-pending, proprietary system that has been clinically tested to strengthen hair, and increase the appearance of fullness, thickness and volume. that consists of in-office treatments administered by licensed professionals.

The at-home treatments were devleoped to support and improve the in-office protocol. They include a Hair Follilce Serum, Leave-in Thickening Conditioner, and Scalp Replenisher.

IS CELLUSTRIOUS® A DRUG? INJECTION? SURGERY?
Cellustrious® contains biomedical, plant based ingredients that are derived from botanicals, peptides and cytokines. There are no synthetic ingredients or drugs, injections, or surgery involved.

The protocol, when combined  with at-home products, is specifically designed to inhibit 5alpha reductase, reduce oxidative stress, increase micro-circulation and increase the activation of dormant hair follicle stem cells, as well as exfoliation the scalp.

IS CELLUSTRIOUS THE SAME AS PRP? IS IT AS EFFECTIVE?
PRP (platelet-rich-plasma) involves injecting a patient’s own platelets and re-injected into the scalp for the treatment of hair loss with medical needles. Results in published studies about PRP in hair regrowth are mixed.

When it comes to hair loss, PRP is considered a “shot gun” approach. There is no way to control what is in PRP to select those bio-signals most favorable to restore hair growth. Cellustrious® is more precise – utilizing a machine and products that have selected bio-signals with proven efficacy – and a more targeted approach, because of the use of smaller, precise needles and the less invasive application.

PRP, which can be very painful, on it’s own does not stop pattern hair loss. It can help someone with slow progression to possibly thicken up their hair. PRP derived from your own blood has been shown to help grow hair that may be dormant in the telogen phase of hair growth, and may stimulate growth, but that’s different from stopping pattern hair loss.

HOW DOES CELLUSTRIOUS® WORK?
In addition to using the latest combination of plant based derivatives that are designed to target the causes of hair loss, we require all of our technicians to be trained by Misti Barnes, the developer of Cellustrious®, to ensure the application will be consistently administered.

 

  • We target the enzymes and triggers that cause hair loss in a way that uses no drugs, or the potential for side effects.
  • Cellustrious® requires no injections and is relatively pain free.
  • The treatment uses peptides and bio-signals that help the healing of the dermal papilla layer, as well as the scalp and skin.
  • Cellustrious® cuts short inflammation, which is one of the main causes of hair loss.
ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
All of the ingredients have been tested in clinical trials, and Cellustrious® has been subjected to various stability and safety test, to have shown no known side effects.
WILL I LOSE MY RESULTS IF I STOP USING CELLUSTRIOUS®?
Just as you don’t go to the gym for a few months and stop completely, we don’t recommend you do that with this treatment. Clients are gradually tapered down once they are satisfied with their results, but up-keep with at home and in-office treatments are advised.
i HAVE GENETIC HAIR LOSS. CAN THIS HELP ME?

This is a non-drug based protocol, a plant-derived treatment regimen to help improve the appearance of fine and thin hair. No matter the underlying cause, Cellustrious® can be used to encourage and rejuvenate follicles for healthy, thicker looking hair. Results depend upon the individual.

WHAT KIND OF RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?

A great majority of the clients who use Cellustrious®  in-office and follow the at home protocols have noticed an increase of 30-50% in their hair density, volume, and thickening.It takes an average of 60 days to see results. Full results can be seen between 6 -12 months.
