A simple and effective treatment for skin and scalp with minimal discomfort
Microneedling can help improve skin texture and can be used to treat various skin conditions including scars, fine lines, stretch marks and enlarged pores. It can also be utilized as a part of an overall aging prevention plan to help maintain and improve skins health and overall appearance
The microneedling procedure uses tiny needles to stimulate collagen production and increase blood flow to the skin. It works by creating microchannels in the top layer of the skin, which allows oxygen and nutrients to reach deeper layers of the epidermis. This improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, acne, sun damage, and pigmentation.
What Is MicroNeedling?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure used to stimulate collagen production and increase blood flow to the skin. It works by creating tiny channels through the top layer of the skin, which allows new cells to grow and repair damaged tissue. This stimulates the body to produce collagen, which improves the look and feel of the skin.
The benefits of microneedling include:
• Improved skin tone and texture
• Reduced scarring
• Increased circulation
• Enhanced healing time after surgery or injury
• Reduction in the number of treatments needed to achieve desired results
What to expect
During a microneedling session, you will lie on a table while a technician inserts very thin needles into your skin. You may experience some slight itching or stinging during this process. Afterward, you may notice redness, swelling, bruising, or tenderness. Some patients may experience minor bleeding or crusting from the needle punctures. Most clients report no pain or discomfort following the procedure.
The procedure takes around 30 minutes and involves using a small handheld device to gently penetrate the epidermis (outer layer) of the skin. This causes micro-tears in the outermost layers of the skin which allows new collagen to form. As the body heals itself, it begins to repair damaged tissue and fill in the holes left by the needles.
Recovery and Results
Most people return home within 2 hours of their microneedling treatment. However, you should avoid strenuous activity until the wounds have healed completely.
Microneedling is ideal for anyone looking to reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles, decrease the appearance of scars, and enhance the appearance of healthy, younger-looking skin. It’s especially helpful when combined with other anti-aging procedures such as Botox® Cosmetic injections, chemical peels, laser resurfacing, or dermal fillers. It can also be beneficial for those who suffer from rosacea, acne, hyperpigmentation, and other skin conditions.
