Micro Needling is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine and facial rejuvenation for the treatment of fine lines, acne scars, and poor skin texture, tone, and color. It also effectively reduces the appearance of stretch marks, especially when combined with Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) andCarboxytherapy. During this procedure, tiny needles are used to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.
Benefits of Micro Needling
Micro Needling results in a reduction in wrinkles as well as improved texture and tone for softer, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. Micro Needling can reverse years of sun damage and has a positive effect on hyper-pigmentation as well as hypo-pigmentation, acne scars, surgical scars, and stretch marks. This treatment requires minimal downtime and is suitable for all skin types.
What areas of the body can be treated?
Micro Needling can be done on all parts of the body, including the face, neck, chest, arms, legs, abdomen, and back.
How is the procedure performed?
A sterile needle tip containing 12 tiny micro-needles is attached to the MicroPen. A thin layer of nutrient-rich gel is applied to your skin and the appropriate treatment depth based on your unique needs is selected. Next, the pen will be pressed against the skin, gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area is covered. Several overlapping passes will be made in the same area.
How does it feel?
The feeling associated with micro-needling is similar to sandpaper being moved across the skin. Although some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating needle tip makes the treatment comfortable.
What is the downtime?
Immediately after the treatment, you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the depth of the needles and the number of overlapping passes. On average, patients require only 12-18 hours of recovery.
When will I see results?
Patients notice an immediate glow to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several weeks. The skin continues to improve for up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production builds. Combining Micro Needling with Mesotherapy nutrients or PRP Stemcell Therapy will further enhance results as additional nutrients and Growth Factors are delivered deep into the skin. Topical applications of serums and nutrients only deliver 10% of the desired nutrients.
How many treatments will I need?
Some patients may see some improvement after a single treatment. However, it is recommended that patients receive a series of 6 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart.
