This therapy is based upon the fact that when the skin is injured the body naturally reacts with an inflammatory response to repair itself. Micro-Needling Therapy essentially has the same effect facilitating the skin’s capacity to regenerate itself when stimulated, resulting in the production of collagen and elastin. The skin will appear refined, with a visible reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, and cutaneous imperfections such as acne scars are minimized.
Micro-Needling uses a device to create tiny puncture wounds to the skin, stimulating the release of growth factors which in turn stimulate fibroblast activity (cells that produce collagen and elastin) to heal the skin via the production of collagen and elastin. This “micro-damage” to the skin does not remove healthy tissue, furthermore the micropunctures create fine channels allowing the optimal penetration of topical nutrients. The average absorption rate of topical products applied to skin is 3-5%, however, after micro-needling treatment the absorption rate temporarily increases up to 80% in the area treated.
This treatment is suitable for individuals with visible signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles, and/or decreased tone and sagging skin; acne scarred skin, uneven skin tone/pigmentation related to sun exposure or dyschromic scarring post laser treatment. Visible results after the first treatment with cumulative effects evident with each additional treatment.
Every 2 weeks for 4-6 weeks depending on individual skin requirements
Once per month for 2 months depending on individual skin requirements
Follow up every 4-6 months for maintenance depending on individual skin requirements
Benefits of Micro-Needling therapy:
- Skin regains elasticity and smoothness giving firmer and tighter skin
- Wrinkles and fine lines are minimized
- Even and radiant skin tone – ideal for acne or otherwise scarred skin types such as that caused by chickenpox
- Rejuvenated skin with vastly improved tone and pigmentation
- No downtime involved (treated skin may have some redness lasting from 1-2 hrs and in some cases up to 24hrs post treatment)
Preparation of the skin for this intensive treatment begins with the cleansing and diamond exfoliation of the skin. It is then followed by the application of a super blend of active ingredients, including regenerative peptides, poly-vitamin complexes, Q coenzyme and essential amino acids. These regenerating gifted molecules will be applied to the skin simultaneously to the micro-puncture, thereby increasing and enhancing the immediate and long-lasting effects of the skin reparation. The treatment concludes with the application of native collagen which strengthens and improves the elasticity of the skin. The skin is hydrated and results are instantaneously visible.
