Microneedling involves pricking the skin with tiny sterilized needles to produce more collagen and elastin, which help you look younger.
Microneedling deploys the use of numerous, sterilized tiny needles that cause micro-injuries to stimulate the skin’s regenerative capacities. When the skin feels these pinpricks, your body will naturally rush to heal them, resulting in a plumped, more youthful appearance. The tissue is activated immediately and growth factors are released to cause tissue repair. Moreover, micro-needling activates specific skin cells, which propagate and eventually produce collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. The effect: A more elastic and firmer skin.
We begin by first evaluating your skin and asking about your skin concerns. It is best you come without makeup on the day of your appointment. Th first step is remove impurities in your face with a signature double cleanse method. We then exfoliate your skin to remove any dead skin cells using a professional-grade peel. All of this preps your skin to help boost Microneedling results. We will then tailor the microneedling, application method, and complementary professional serum to target your skin health goals. Various active substances are introduced deeply into your skin. The needles oscillate fast enough for them to just slide across the skin. This causes significantly less pain than other microneedling systems. Right after a micro-needling treatment your skin will be reddened. The skin is then treated with a specific antiseptic and regenerative serum and soothes by applying cold packs. There’s no downtime needed for this minimally-invasive procedure but your post-treatment home care routine is as important as the treatment itself for maintaining and enhancing your results. You’ll leave with a customized home care product plan that best suits your skin.
It comes with tons of benefits. The wound-healing mechanisms stimulate your body to produce new skin cells, making fine lines, crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles less apparent. Because microneedling stimulates collagen and elastin production, it’s also super effective in addressing acne and other scars on your skin. The only type of scar not possible to treat is keloid, or raised, scars. Microneedling is effective in reducing the appearance of sun damage, particularly hyperpigmentation and age spots. If you have a blotchy, brownish complexion, which is probably a result of too many days of sunning, microneedling and its ability to stimulate new collagen and skin cells can reinvigorate your look and even out your tone. Despite the fact that microneedling involves punching holes in your skin, it doesn’t increase the size of your pores. In fact, it helps your pores appear much smaller. When the collagen around your pores is stimulated, the area around each pore plumps, making the pore itself almost disappear. Lastly, microneedling works just about anywhere on your body. It can be effective in reducing the appearance of stretch marks that show up after periods of rapid growth, such as during pregnancy.
