What is Microneedling?
Medical skin needling, or ‘microneedling’, aims to restore the skin’s healthy appearance by stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin in the deep, dermal layer, while bypassing the epidermis.
A vertical microneedling pen – we use a Nanopore Turbo Roller – is gently rolled over the skin to create controlled ‘micro-injuries’ in the dermis, triggering the healing and repair process. The thousands of miniscule pin prick wounds in the targeted skin tissue result in new collagen and elastin being laid down in the skin’s upper dermal layer. A single microneedle injury would not trigger noticeable collagen formation, but collectively, thousands of minute injuries can produce collagen layers on a scale similar to laser therapies.
Who is a Good Candidate?
Safe and virtually pain-free, microneedling is used to treat:
- Wrinkles and lines
- Lack of skin firmness and elasticity
- Acne and chicken pox scars
- Enlarged or open pores and blackheads
- Sun damage
- Under-eye bags
- Stretch marks
You will get numbing cream to help make the procedure relaxing and pain free. A hyaluronic acid glide is used to prep and treat your skin.
Our microneedling pen uses tiny needles similar to acupuncture to create micro-injuries to the skin. This controlled injury causes your skin to use its own healing cells to rejuvenate the skin, making healthier skin cells and increase collagen production.
This treatment can also be combined with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) or Mesotherapy our to create more drastic results quicker. This organic facial creates brilliant skin using your body’s own healing cells.
This no downtime procedure can be performed on the same day as the consult. You can return to your normal daily routine immediately after. There is some minor swelling and your make-up can be replaced right away.
Microneedling can improve your skin with just one treatment although the best results are seen with multiple procedures. Your skin will look bright and dewy right away but results improve over the next 6 weeks as your skin is stimulated to build better collagen, smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, decrease your pore size, and smooth out scars. Individual results may vary.
