What is Microneedling?
Microneedling or Natural Collagen Induction Therapy, it creates small channels into the layers of the skin which break up the old collagen strands and stimulate growth collagen and elastin.  


How Exactly Microneedling Work?
By the time we are 35 we will have lost half the collagen (the ‘scaffolding’ of the skin) in our skin and elastin (which gives our skin its elasticity), and quite simply Microneedling stimulates collagen and elastin production.  It is the controlled stimulation of the skin’s ability to self-repair.  The thousands of micro ‘channels’ created in the skin, not only trigger new collagen production but also allow any products applied to penetrate deep into the skin and heal the skin further.  "The production of new collagen continues for up to 12 month after the procedure."



Instant Plumping That’s Locked into the Skin:
Natural serums,*(Hyaluronic Acid+ Vitamin C) are applied immediately after Microneedling, as the channels the needles have made in the skin also allows the products to enter far deeper into the skin than they would without the skin needling being done first.  This will significantly aid the success of the treatment as the skin’s ability to soak up nutrients increases by whooping 3000% for an hour after the treatment!!  



Benefits of Medical- Microneedling:


  1. Cost effective--less than laser treatments

  2. Skin is thickened, tightened and elasticity is restored

  3. Safe Suitable for all skin types--even thin skin and previously lasered

  4. A natural response of collagen is induced

  5. Can be performed on all skin types pigmentation marks are lightened

  6. Fine lines and wrinkles are softened

  7. Quick healing time

  8. Can be repeated

  9. No ablation of the epidermis

  10. No risk of discoloration to the skin

  11. All areas of the face, neck and body can be treated

  12. Can last 2-10 years--or with natural aging process



What effects does the Medical Microneedling have on the skin?


     * Improves skin texture and reduces the appearance of wrinkles


     * Stimulates tissue regeneration

     * Disfiguring scars, especially acne scars can be improved as new collagen fibers elevate the depressed scar                  tissue with the periphery skin

     * Pore size reduction

     * Improves the appearance of stretch marks, Lip lines, Forehead lines, Frown lines, Wrinkles, Sun- age spots,                  Surgical Scars, Acne /Chicken pox scars and Stretch marks.




Am I a candidate for the Medical Microneedling?


Medical microneedling can be safely performed on all skin types and all skin colors. As the epidermis and in particular, melanocytes in the basal area are left intact. There is minimal risk of pigment change or post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation. Skin microneedling can treat sensitive and fragile areas that are difficult to treat with other procedures.  These areas include the eyes, the neck and the back of the hands.

However, it is not suitable for patients who:


  • Have a used Accutane (isotretinoin) within the last three months

  • Have open wounds, cuts or abrasions on the skin

  • Have had radiation treatment to the skin within the last year

  • Have any kind of current skin infection, condition, herpes simplex in the area to be treated

  • Are pregnant or breast feeding

  • Have any history of keloid or hypertrophic scars or poor wound healing.



Risks of post-op infections?
Since the tiny pricking channels close within one hour, and provided the procedure is done under clinical conditions, post-op infections are extremely unlikely.



How many sessions do u need?

Each skin responds differently and most skins will need multiple treatments at 6-12 week intervals, dependent on the initial condition being treated, and the desired outcome. This time frame allows us to see the maximum new collagen deposition and to assess the success of the treatment.

Recovery time for skin needling:

Following the treatment the area treated will be red, swollen, and irritated. The redness lasts three to 5 days and only 24-48 hours for skin needling. After 24 hours you can wear mineral makeup to cover the area.




Medical research has shown that Microneedling increases

collagen and elastin induction by up to 100% after a single treatment.
