Micro Needling

How it works?

Micro Needling is a treatment that rejuvenate the skin and improve the skin surface by reducing fines lines, expression lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores and acne scars. The concept is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical injury such as cuts, burns and other abrasions. As the micro needling device moves across the skin, it makes pinpoint pictures to create very minor micro “injuries”. In response to the perceived “injury”, a cascade of growth factors is released, with is turn triggers new collagen synthesis.

This process has two major benefits, it effectively stimulates collagen formation and provides a clear channel for topical serums to be absorbed through the surface of the skin.

By persistently triggering this healing process with a series of Micro Needling treatments, the body keeps repairing the skin incrementally and cumulatively to offer a result similar to fractional laser treatments but without the side effects and extended down time. The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin.

While most commonly used on the face, Micro Needling can also be used to restore and regenerate the skin on the neck, chest, and hands. Micro Needling is safe for all colors of skin and all types of skin.

The Procedure

Micro Needling is performed in a safe and precise manner with the use of a sterile, disposable tip that allows effective treatment to hard-to reach places (e.g. around the eyes, nose, and lips). Prior to the procedure, topical anesthetic cream is applied for patient comfort.

The treatment includes the application of healing gels and serums. The entire procedure is normally completed within 30-60 minutes depending on the anatomical site. New healthy skin appears about 2-3 weeks after treatment.

After the treatment: The sensation of Micro Needling is described as a stinging sensation, particularly in areas of bony prominence and where the skin is thinner such as the neck and around the eyes. Immediately following the procedure, the ski will feel tight, dry swollen, and sensitive to the touch. It will also look and feel like sunburned.

The sensitivity and redness will diminish significantly with 6 – 24 hours. The skin may look and feel like sandpaper, these effects generally last 2-7 days as the treated skin flakes off and is replaced by new tissue.
