Micro Needling Therapy
Micro needling or collagen induction therapy is the newest skin rejuvenation procedure for the stimulation of your own natural collagen and elastin resulting in a thicker epidermis, tighter skin and a softening of wrinkles. It is a minimally invasive procedure with virtually no down time and, with a small amount of topical anesthetic, it is virtually painless!
Micro Needling Treatments
Micro needling is a process by which microscopic needles are used to create small micro channels in the top layers of the skin (epidermis/dermis). The body's healing response is the release of growth factors. The growth factors allow neocollagenesis (new collagen production) and neovascularization (formation of microvascular networks) to take place. Collagen production, tissue remodeling and a thicker epidermis is the end result lending to the improved appearance of tighter skin. The micro channels created during treatment allow for greater absorption of skin serums, creams and gels. Peptide gel, copper repair cream and extra growth factors can be added topically to the skin during treatment to further stimulate collage production as well as to speed the healing process. The body is able to produce collagen for up to 6-8 months after a course of micro needling treatments.
How Micro Needling Feels
Micro needling feels like a soft abrasion of the skin. The micro-incisions created during micro needling will close approximately 3-5 minutes after the treatment. There is a very low risk of infection. Redness of the skin will last up to 3 days. There may be skin dryness and flaking for 3-4 days. Mineral makeup is suggested to reduce the appearance of redness and flaking. By day 3, the skin in the treatment area will feel tighter and smoother. Clients who undergo a course of micro needling treatments report up to 60-80% skin improvement. Most treatments can be completed within 20-30 minutes depending on the treatment site. For best results most people will require a treatment course of 4-6 treatments spaced every 4 weeks.
