Micro-Needling Skin Therapy
A Deep Collagen Induction Treatment That Reverses Aging
What exactly is Micro-needling?
Micro-needling is known by many names around the world; Skin needling, Dermal Rolling, Meso-therapy, and Collagen Induction. This amazing treatment offers a long standing and scientifically based method for generating collagen in the deeper layers of the skin,. Loss of collagen makes us look older because our skin and muscles sag. Collagen proteins create the volume that supports the skin, and collagen combines with other proteins to give our skin more elasticity. When you stimulate collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin, the volume returns, and you have a more youthful appearance .
Micro-needling works by stimulating the dermis layer of the skin, (the layer just under the surface), to regenerate the cells and proteins – without negatively affecting the epidermis, (the outer protective layer of the skin). The clinical treatment is considered “non-invasive”.
The science of Micro-needling, is actually based in homeopathic methods. The therapy works “with the body” to gently stimulate the body’s own natural healing responses. The therapy is administered with the use of tiny “micro-needles” that gently stimulate the skin in the deeper layers. The “needling process iis designed to cause a very mild inflammatory response in the skin, that prompts the dermis to begin a release of epidermal growth factors. After each treatment, the skin turns lightly pink and oxygen levels increase substantially. It is this biological response to gently pricking the skin, that promotes accelerated skin and tissue regeneration. MIcro-needling also increases the availability of cell nutrients and cellular communication. With access to more nutrients, skin cell function is optimized, and rejuvenation is increased. Micro-needling therapy safely, effectively and predictably stimulates the production of collagen, elastin, keratinocytes, and melanocytes – (the important protein and pigment building blocks of the skin and hair). Results can be further optimized by combining Micro-needling with serums or skin products designed to prompt a significant rejuvenation response in the skin.
What are the benefits of Micro-needling?
- Treats wrinkles & Lax Skin
- Treats Hyper-pigmentation
- Restores collagen volume
- Reverses effects of Premature Aging
- Reduces and Repairs Scars & Stretch Marks
- Aids in reversing UV Damage Sun Damage
- Revitalizes thinning hair and supports healthy scalp functions when combined with scalp stimulates
The process of Micro-needling creates tiny pathways that help skincare products and medications penetrate several layers deeper, than they could by themselves. This allows for 80% more product delivery to pass into the areas where it can be of the greatest benefit to the skin or the scalp.
Our Clinical Micro-needling therapy provides a comfortable and affordable alternative for stimulating and replacing lost collagen in the Face and Neck without lasers or fillers. This anti-aging skin care treatment, dramatically reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, while tightening and toning sagging skin. When clinical treatments and home care programs are combined, dramatic improvements in the skin and collagen volume can be achieved and maintained indefinitely. The Micro-needling Therapy can be combined with home care treatment programs to successfully manage or reduce pigmentation problems, acne scars, surgery scars and laxity of the skin.
What can I expect from Micro-needling Therapy?
Micro-needling is a clinical rejuvenation treatment. This technology is designed to tackle multiple skin problems simultaneously. Dramatic skin tightening, wrinkle reduction and volume restoration, can be achieved and maintained when the Micro-needling treatments are combined with collagen regeneration products. Results are similar to laser rejuvenation benefits.
How Do The Micro-needling Treatments Work?
Micro-needling treatments work to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin proteins in the skin. The body stops producing elastin in our twenties, and collagen around the age of forty. The loss of these vital proteins, creates a break-down in the infrastructure of the skin. Sun damage, lifestyle habits, poor nutrition and hormonal changes can dramatically affect our skin’s ability to regenerate. This results in the fine lines, wrinkles and the sagging we associate with aging. Each Micro needling treatment effectively harnesses the body’s own restorative processes to begin making these proteins again, without the use of lasers, peels or fillers.
Before and After A Series of Clinical Micro-needling Treatments
What will I experience in a Micro-needling appointment?
Your Clinical Technician will begin with a thorough consultation and a review of your cosmetic goals to establish a customized treatment protocol. Your skin will be cleansed and a light topical anesthetic will be applied. When the skin is numb, your technician will use one or more “Micro-needling devices” to treat your problem areas. As the Micro-needling devices are passed over the skin’s surface, they make tiny pricks “below” the surface of the skin, so the upper layer of the skin is not affected. Repeated passes will jump start the skin’s natural ability to restore and repair itself, by prompting the production of collagen and elastin at the deeper levels. As more collagen and elastin proteins are produced, the skin begins to replace lost volume. This results in an immediate and overall improvement in the skin’s elasticity and coloring. You will notice lifting and tightening of the skin. Unlike traditional facial treatments, our Micro-needling therapies reach the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating an immediate and long lasting anti-aging response by the body.
How soon will I see results?
The benefits of a even a single Micro-needling session are apparent within the first week, and will continue for several months. The skin’s circulation, elasticity and oxygen levels will improve dramatically with repeated treatments. Your Technician may recommend combining Micro-needling with other rejuvenation therapies to enhance or boost your results.
Is there any downtime or discomfort before or after a treatment?
Every person is different with how their skin responds to cosmetic therapies, however, most people will notice that their skin will only be “pink to lightly red” with a healthy glow when their session concludes. Superior oxygenation and stimulation of the dermal tissue can cause the skin to remain pink to lightly red for up to 24 hours after a treatment. The skin is lightly anesthetized with a topical cream prior to the treatment, so there is no discomfort during the procedure
How long will Micro-needling results last?
Micro-needling’s beneficial effects will build steadily with each treatment, and continue for months after each session. In the clinical studies where patients were treated with Micro-needling therapies, individuals experienced a 50% improvement in the skin’s coloring and texture, and a 75 to 90% improvement in the skin’s overall elasticity and volume. Dramatic results were experienced in just three to six sessions, Each treatment effectively increases collagen volume without fillers, and helps to smooth lax skin and pigmentation problems. Periodic maintenance visits are recommended to maintain and boost the results of your therapy.
