WHAT IS MICRO-NEEDLING
Micro-needling is safe, chemical-free and minimal invasive technique for stimulating collagen production. Collagen and elastin give skin its texture, structure and appearance. But as we age, these compounds break down from sun and environmental damage that causes dry skin leading to wrinkles. Micro-needling is mechanical method for reversing this breakdown.
WHAT BENEFITS WILL I SEE
Tiny needle pricks that improve your skin texture and tone; this procedure is extremely effective at reversing the signs of aging and diminishing scars. This procedure is also called “Collagen Induction Therapy”, it is a non-surgical resurfacing procedure that creates a controlled injury underneath the skin’s surface in order to stimulate the body to naturally produce collagen elastin, as the result you get plumper skin and diminished appearance of scarring and wrinkles.
You will see changes from the treatment in several days, however the results may continue up to 6 month after the treatment as the production of collagen continues.
HOW IS IT PERFORMED
First, the aesthetician will cleanse the skin and apply some numbing gel to eliminate any discomfort. Once the gel takes effect, the gel will be removed and using the micro pen, the aesthetician will gently press the pen against the skin and gently glide it across each area pf your face. Mostly, treatment is done in about 15 to 30 minutes.
HOW LONG IS THE RECOVERY
After the treatment, you skin will be bright red. The redness, on average, can last for 2 to 4 days. However, for some clients redness is gone the day after the treatment, depending on the skin type and the intensity of your treatment. After the procedure, to help your skin to recover, we always recommend a collagen mask that can be bought in our clinic, most of our clients confirm that this mask speeds up the recovery process and ad also calms their skin.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET MICRO-NEEDLING
The number of sessions depends on what your goal is. For example, foe deep scars or stretch marks might require about 5 treatments. For acne scars you will see results with after three to four treatments. The treatment should be done in every 3 to 6 weeks.
Micro-needling is not done only in case of scars and wrinkles. Many of our clients have the treatment in every 6 to 12 months just to maintain the skin resurfacing and for better absorption of anti-aging serums and products
