Like the heart, stomach, and brain, your skin is an organ. In fact, it’s the largest organ in your body, but it’s still easy to take skin for granted. Unless there’s a problem, you may not think about your skin very much. But skin has an important job to do.
Your skin is constantly protecting you. Your skin keeps infections out of your body and keeps you from getting sick. When you take care of your skin, you’re helping your skin do its job. And taking care of your skin today will help prevent future problems, like wrinkles and even skin cancer. Nothing gives you more self-confidence and an extra bounce in your step more than knowing you look good. Proper skin care, being that skin is the most noticeable part of a person’s body is the #1 way to get that feeling.

We at ReNove Medical Spa are pleased to be able to offer Micro-needling. Micro-needling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy. Micro-needling improves fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, stretch marks, and other conditions by stimulating your skin’s natural ability to repair itself through the stimulation of new collagen formation, with results similar to laser treatments but without the prolonged downtime of lasers.
Radio Frequency Micro Needling, also known as “PiXel8-RF” uses bi-polar, radio-frequency (RF) energy alongside minimally invasive micro-needles to effectively tighten and smooth your skin. This procedure combats visible signs of aging, improves tissue coagulation and blood flow in the treatment area, and is suitable for all skin types. The energy delivered through the PiXel8-RF micro-needles into the tissue can be adjusted to a depth of .5mm to 3.5mm to address each patient’s aesthetic needs.

Are you ready to lose those annoying skin tags around your neck, underarms or groin? Cutaneous tags are very common skin growths. They usually occur after midlife and are usually harmless and non-cancerous (benign). The tag sticks out of the skin and may have a short, narrow stalk connecting it to the surface of the skin. Dr. Parsons can remove your skin tags easily and quickly, including around the eyes. There is usually no regrowth or scar formation after cutaneous tags are removed, although new growths may appear elsewhere on the body.
