What is Micro Needling?
Micro-Needling 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 Micro Needling 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 Micro Needling 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 Micro-Needling, 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- Micro Needling:
Cost effective--less than laser treatments
Skin is thickened, tightened and elasticity is restored
SafeSuitable for all skin types--even thin skin and previously lasered
A natural response of collagen is induced
Can be performed on all skin types pigmentation marks are lightened
Fine lines and wrinkles are softened
Quick healing time
Can be repeated
No ablation of the epidermis
No risk of discoloration to the skin
All areas of the face, neck and body can be treated
Can last 2-10 years--or with natural aging process
What effects does the Medical Micro-Needling 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 Micro- Needling?
Medical micro-needling 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 micro-needling 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 Micro Needling increases
collagen and elastin induction by up to 100% after a single treatment.
