The concept of micro-needling is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself when it suffers physical damage such as cuts, burns, abrasions or other injuries. Immediately after an injury to the skin, our body begins the healing process, triggering new collagen synthesis. The micro-needling device intentionally creates very superficial “micro-injuries” to the outermost layer of the skin to induce the healing process that includes new collagen production. Micro-needling has been shown to reduce the visibility of acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles; diminish hyper-pigmentation; and improve skin tone and texture, resulting in smoother, firmer, younger looking skin.
ABOUT THE PROCEDURE
The micro-needling procedure is performed in a safe and precise manner with a single-use, sterile needle head.
The treatment session usually takes about 60-80 minutes, depending on the area(s) being treated. Throughout the procedure, activating agents will be applied to stimulate the rejuvenation process. Following your procedure you will receive a LED light treatment to aid in recovery and Stimulate Collagen production. After the procedure, your skin will be red with mild swelling and/or bruising, and it might feel tight and sensitive to the touch. Although these symptoms may take 2-3 days to resolve completely, they will diminish significantly within a few hours after treatment.
Please note, this treatment is not suitable for pregnant women, Keloid/hypertrophic scarring, Sunburn, Active acne, Haemophilia, Active infection of any type (Bacterial, Viral or fungal), Skin cancer, Chemotherapy/radiation patients, Eczema, Psoriasis, Dermatitis, or Rosacea.
