What Is Micro Needling?
Skin needling has been performed safely for hundreds and even thousands of years in Asia for cosmetic purposes. Tools such as the 7 star needle were used cosmetically for scarring and beauty treatments. This was completed by traditional techniques such as the jade roller and Gua Sha. Modern micro needling is in essence in symphony with the theories and principles of acupuncture.
This treatment provides an impressive cosmetic therapy with superlative scientific evidence of effectiveness. Ancient principles combined with technological advancements make it possible to treat skin for scarring and stretch marks, cellulite, and hair loss.
As a cosmetic treatment, the trick is using the finest needles possible to achieve top results. Interestingly, research supports the fact that collagen is only inducted up to 0.5-0.6mm deep even when longer needles are used. Immediately after the treatment, the patients’ skin becomes increasingly absorbent. During those few minutes of increased transdermal absorption, we apply the absolute most potent concussion filled with humectants and enzymes.
the mechanics of micro needling
Microneedling, also called Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is a favorite treatment among aesthetic practitioners owing to its many benefits and low down-time.
We use the very best device the industry has to offer, called the DermaPen. The DermaPen is a small, handheld device with incredible power to correct problematic skin and reverse visible signs of aging. On its own, the mechanical stimulation by tiny, single-use, sterile needles on the MicroPen™ aids in the production of new collagen and elastin and promotes cell turn-over.
The added bonus with microneedling is the opportunity these little micro-punctures create to deliver potent topical customized infusions, mixed of the most effective ingredients deep into the dermal layers of your skin, where issues tend to arise from.
micro needling results
Most people see visible results from their first treatment with the DermaPen, after the skin is fully healed.
Results will peak around 12 weeks, but the formation of new collagen can continue for several weeks to months after a single treatment.Immediately following the treatment.
The skin will appear pink, similar to a mild sunburn. This redness will resolve rapidly and most people can return to work the same day.
For optimal results, it is recommended that most patients receive a series of 3-5 treatments 4-6 weeks apart, depending on the individual’s treatment goals and skin condition.
micro needling Secrets to better and longer lasting results
Although we use the treatment in combination with other Cosmetic Procedures, the Microneeding Facial can work and deliver stunning results when delivered effectively. During the first phase, we test the skin elasticity and thickness and we also determine genetic factors, in order that we might propose the best RX for beauty.
The key ingredients for success are: dermal preparation, post dermal infusion, and last but not least, the frequency and number of treatments.
