Micro‑needling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that can relax and smooth out scars, pores, wrinkles, stretch marks and help to even skin texture and pigmentation. It is performed with a special digital machine that will place fine needles with high‑speed in the lower and higher dermis of skin layer. Penetrating needles create micro‑injuries, which at that point send signal to your brain to go into repair mode. As a result your body starts creating new collagen and elastin, an important part of healthy and glowing skin.
Treatment can help with fine lines, acne scars, traumatic scars, burn scars, post‑surgery scars, stretch marks, large pores, dark under eye circles, wrinkles, cellulite and some pigmentation issues. Specific treatment products can also be used to achieve enhanced effects.
Micro‑needling is 100 % safe and natural. There is no poison injected into the skin, and no tissue destruction. Micro‑needling can safely be used on all parts of the body and for all skin types.
Most people do not feel any pain during the procedure and some may feel discomfort. In order to help with discomfort topical anaesthetic cream is used to keep the patient comfortable during the procedure. Right after the therapy, a patient’s face may look reddish (similar to sunburn) and a bit puffy. This can last the rest of the day, to several days.
Treatment can last 1‑3 hours while multiple visits might be needed depending on the scar or wrinkle itself, skin type and person’s ability to recover. Clients by average do 2‑4 treatments spaced 6‑8 weeks apart, but some people may decide that the results of the first one are good enough and not need any more. You can expect to see improvements on your skin over the course of several weeks for up to several months as collagen production still continues. After the procedure, wrinkle lines may not disappear completely but will be far less noticeable, not as deep and much smoother. Effects from needling are expected to last somewhere between 3 to 8 years.
