Micro needling is also called collagen induction therapy. It is a minimally-invasive non-surgical and non-ablative procedure for facial rejuvenation that involves the use of a micro-needling device to create controlled skin injury.

As each fine needle punctures the skin, it creates a channel or micro-wound. The controlled injury triggers the body to fill these micro-wounds by producing new collagen and elastin in the papillary dermis. In addition, new capillaries are formed. This neocollagenesis following the treatment leads to reduction of scars and skin rejuvenation, i.e., improved skin texture, firmness and hydration.

Description

An outstanding product absorption booster

These superficial micro-channels also allow topical gels, creams and serums to be absorbed more effectively into the skin. Specific treatment products can be selected to achieve accelerated results. We’ll employ various topicals depending upon your needs

  • Hyaluronic serums
  • Lightening serums
  • Stem cells to multiply new young cells
  • Vitamin C for strengthening and antioxidant boost

What is the micro needling procedure like?

The procedure is well tolerated. It takes a few minutes up to an hour to complete, depending on the area to be treated and the severity of the problem. Your skin care professional then applies a numbing cream (topical) on the treatment area .

The skin is punctured in a specific pattern using a skin needling device. As each fine needle punctures the skin, it creates a channel or micro-wound stimulating skin cell regeneration.

Depending on the condition treated it may take up to 60 minutes to complete the procedure.

After the treatment

You’ll likely look as if you have a sunburn following treatment. This can last the rest of the day, to several days or a week depending on treatment depth. Treat your skin gently and refrain from acid-containing products for a week or longer if advised.

How many treatments do I need?

Micro-needling can be safely repeated every 4-6 weeks until you achieve the desired results. For collagen induction we recommend to start with 3 treatments, but with a minimum separation time of 4 to 6 weeks between treatments. For scar reduction an average of 3 to 6 treatments are recommended.

The number of treatments required will depend on how each individual responds to the treatments, and the extent of the damage at the beginning. Micro-needling can be used on all skin parts of the body (neck, décolleté, arms, legs, etc). Most people will begin to see results after the very first appointment.
