Micro-Needling: Collagen induction therapy
Collagen induction therapy, Micro-Needling creates hundreds of tiny wounds in the top layer of skin using tiny needles. This treatment successfully helps repair skin from the effects of aging as well as pigment issues, sun damage, and acne scars.
What Is Micro-Needling?
Micro-needling is a minimally invasive treatment that delivers tiny punctures to the skin using micro-fine needles. This causes healing to take place in the skin and stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin.
What does Micro-Needling treat?
• Repairs visible scars
• Reverses sun damage and pigmentation issues
• Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
• Tightens skin
What to expect after your Micro-needling treatment?
Prior to the treatment, numbing cream will be applied to minimize the slight pain that is felt during the procedure. After the treatment you will have some inflammation, however this will be temporary and will subside greatly within several hours. Mild swelling reduces over one day. Your skin may remain a little red for two days after the treatment. The inflammation and swelling can be soothed with topical creams applied after the procedure. Using hyaluronic acid after the procedure can help reduce inflammation. Sunscreen should always be used to protect the skin. A good mineral makeup, such as glominerals™ is an excellent makeup to use after the treatment.
How many treatments are recommended and what results should I see?
Three treatments are recommended for increasing collagen and elastin production, however you will see improvement with only one treatment. Scar reduction may require more than three treatments.
After the treatment your skin begins to heal itself immediately, producing new collagen that stays active for approximately a year. This new collagen and increased elastin production will provide you with younger, healthier, and firmer looking skin. You will notice less wrinkles, fine lines, and a reduction in acne scars. Most of all you will experience better overall tone and texture in your skin.
