Traditional MicroNeedling Treatment for the Skin
MicroNeedling, also called Fractional Collagen Induction, effectively reduces fine lines & wrinkles, lifts & tightens, rejuvenates tone & texture, and minimizes pore size.
Treatments are cumulative, and you will notice an improvement in the appearance of the texture & tone of your skin.
As your collagen increases, your skin becomes firmer and regains its elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced, pores become finer and less noticeable, and you will see an overall improvement to your skin.
MicroNeedling can be combined with PRP for increased benefits.
How Does it Work?
A topical growth factor serum or PRP is applied to the skin. A device with sterile disposable needle cartridges creates vertical micro perforations into the epidermis and the dermis' top layer.
As a result, the skin shifts its natural repair mechanism into high gear triggering collagen and elastin production. The skin's self-repairing property is a 100% natural form of skin renewal from the inside out.
Microneedling activates cell regeneration but, it also enhances the absorption of active ingredients (products or PRP) into the skin.
What to Expect During This Treatment
First, you will go through a thorough consultation with one of our skincare experts to ensure the best possible treatment plan and answer any questions you may have before the treatment.
During your treatment, a topical numbing cream will be applied to your skin. This ensures the treatment is comfortable. The micro-needling device is moved along the skin in a crosshatch and circular pattern.
The time of the treatment depends on what area(s) are being addressed. Most treatments take about an hour.
What to Expect Post Treatment
You will feel a warm sensation and some redness after your treatment, similar to a mild sunburn. Typically these symptoms will subside in 24 hours.
Your skin will feel firm and taut immediately after the treatment. You will be able to see results immediately after your first treatment and will continue for several days after.
The treatments are progressive so that you will see continual improvement with each treatment. In clinical studies, patients showed a considerable increase in collagen and elastin and improved even after a year of treatment.
