We hear you loud and clear, Nashville. Those hot and humid summers aren’t too kind to your skin – and those cold and wet winters aren’t doing any good, either. When you couple that with the natural aging process – which tends to wait for no one – it’s easy to see why so many people are fed up with their skin.

Breakouts, acne scars, wrinkles, fine lines, stretch marks, blackheads – it might feel like every day is a new battle for your skin, but that doesn’t mean you have to live in defeat. With the right skincare routine, Nashville residents can enjoy their own Music City Miracle – not on the football field, but on their faces! 

So, what can we do to improve skin appearance?

If you’re unhappy with the way your skin looks, then you’re in luck. The anti-aging industry is always introducing new treatments, technologies, topicals, and more to improve skin health and appearance – some of which can be performed at home, while others require a trip to your favorite Nashville med spa.

Let’s first take a look at some of the things you can start doing at home to promote younger-looking skin: 

  • Apply aloe vera and sunscreen when necessary
  • Wash your face regularly (preferably twice per day)
  • Eat a well-balanced diet and keep yourself hydrated
  • Apply a face mask while watching TV or winding down
  • Use a dermal roller to help smooth skin and massage the face

Your skincare efforts won’t go unnoticed, but there might come a time when you feel your skin deserves more – that extra little ‘oomph’ to give you the confidence you need to thrive in a bright city like Nashville. If this sounds like you, then you’ve come to the right place – The SKN Bar is your skin’s new safe haven

Microneedling: Your Golden Ticket to Smooth, Firm, & Young-Looking Skin

There are a lot of different treatments that promise to repair and rejuvenate the skin, and most of them do exactly that, but not many do so as naturally as microneedling. It might sound uninviting at first glance, but it’s actually quite the therapeutic experience – and, let’s be honest, the results speak for themselves. 

Alright, so what’s with all this microneedling talk? 

Microneedling is the process of pricking the skin with tiny, microneedles (we’re talking no more than 2mm under the skin’s surface). The tiny needles create micro-injuries in the epidermis (outer layer of the skin), which triggers the body’s natural healing process – including the production of both collagen and elastin. 

That’s not all! Microneedling also creates tiny microchannels in the skin. When topicals, gels, creams, and serums are applied to the skin, these microchannels help guide the vitamins and nutrients deeper into the skin’s surface – allowing for greater absorption and effectiveness. I mean, how could you say no to that? 

Candela Exceed: The Anti-Aging Pen That’s Exceeding Expectations

In 2020, a company by the name of Candela launched the world’s first dual-indicated, FDA-cleared medical microneedling device – it’s designed to treat both facial wrinkles and acne scars. They decided to call it Exceed, and the name speaks for itself – it has been exceeding patient expectations ever since! 

Here are some of the most prominent benefits of the Candela Exceed pen: 

  • Boosts collagen and elastin production
  • Increases effectiveness of topicals, gels, and serums
  • Reduces the appearance of facial wrinkles
  • Improves the appearance of periorbital wrinkles (crow’s feet)
  • Significant improvement in acne scarring 
  • The handheld device is quiet, which improves the patient experience
  • The outer layer of the skin isn’t damaged in the process

The Candela Exceed pen can treat wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, and acne scars on the face, chest, and neck. Here at The SKN Bar in Nashville, TN, we like to combine our microneedling procedure with Luxe Serum – providing your skin with the nutrients it needs to look and feel its absolute best at all times.

Candela Exceed + PRP/PRFM = Vampire Facial

If that wasn’t enough to convince you, we can also use the Candela Exceed pen in conjunction with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy and platelet-rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM) therapy. This combination, known as a ‘vampire facial,’ speeds up the body’s natural healing process with potent growth factors. 

Let’s take a closer look at what PRP and PRFM are, and how they can improve your skin health: 

  • PRP - the process of isolating platelets from a patient’s blood sample and injecting the platelet-rich plasma into the treatment area (in this case, the microneedling area). 
  • PRFM - a similar process as PRP, but results in a higher concentration of platelets. It’s a more stable and effective process, which means greater benefits and younger-looking skin!

Microneedling already stimulates the production of collagen and elastin by promoting cell turnover, but these effects are magnified when combined with PRP or PRFM. This results in smoother, firmer, tighter, and younger-looking skin. Trust us, you’re going to love the way you look after just a few treatments!
