Microneedling

Keeping your skin bright

Microneedling, a gentle skin treatment used to refine and smooth, works using a handheld device containing sterilized micro needles which, when applied to the skin, create micro lesions or small tunnels which allow skin care ingredients to reach deeper into skin layers and stimulate collagen regeneration. These micro-channels cause your skin to produce more collagen and elastin, helping your skin generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, and more toned skin. 

 

First introduced in 1996, Microneedling is also known as collagen induction therapy. World-renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Des Fernandes created a small needle stamp to induce collagen production. He used this regularly in his surgical practice.

Microneedling: A Skin Health Maintenance Plan

Laser treatments can cost about four times as much as microneedling. For people with darker skin tones, microneedling is preferable because it doesn’t involve the heat of a laser treatment which can affect skin pigmentation (color). 

 
As the body ages, it produces less and less collagen in the skin which can cause dark circles, creping, wrinkles, and sagging. Microneedling 3 to 4 times a year can help maintain collagen to help your skin ease into its changes and age beautifully. 

First, pre-numbing cream is applied to the treatment area for about 30 minutes, so clients remain comfortable throughout the entire treatment process.

Next, the microneedling specialist moves a pen-shaped device with tiny needles on the face to create micro channels on the skin. Hyaluronic Acid serum or Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) may be smoothed on the skin during the treatment to help the microneedling pen glide effortlessly across the skin. Hyaluronic acid also helps aid cell regeneration and retain skin hydration. PRP also speeds the healing process and rejuvenation effects. The immediate aftereffect is temporary redness of the face known as erythema, similar to a sunburn. There is often a small amount of bleeding as the healing process is initiated. 

 

Last, your Certified Specialist may spread a cream or serum or apply a face mask. LED light therapy may also be used in combination to promote collagen production.
