What is microneedling?
Micro-needling treatment is clinically proven to give visible results after one treatment.
Micro-needling creates controlled micro injuries that stimulate the body’s natural wound healing response initiating the release of natural growth factors to improve elastin and collagen formation regenerating cellular tissue.
Collagen Induction Therapy assists in the rejuvenation of the epidermal integrity resulting in improved appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Micro-Needling can effectively remodel scar tissue whilst maintaining the overall structure of the skin, and can be used on all areas of the face and body treating a number of concerns. Micro-needling can also be used in conjunction with mesotherapy.
We will carefully assess your skin to establish if you are a suitable candidate and will thoroughly explain the procedure, risks and benefits prior to treatment.
What can I expect from MicroNeedling Therapy?
PRIOR TO THE TREATMENT:
Topical anaesthetic may be applied for 20-30 minutes prior the treatment for additional comfort.
The micro - needling devise is carefully glided across the area of concern to create hundreds of very shallow or superficial microscopic puncture wounds which stimulate the natural repair process and activates collagen and elastin production.
Erythema (redness) should be visible with possible signs of blood spotting, this gives us indication that the depth is at its correct point in order to activate the body’s own healing response. We recommend a course of 4 treatments at 4-6 week intervals for optimal results .
You should avoid touching the area or applying any products onto the skin for 12 hours in order to prevent infection.
Post treatment a soothing balm is applied to help soothe the area. After 12 hours a rescue calming complex can be used to help support remodelling of the skin.
The treatment area can be red and warm for 24 to 48 hours post treatment but most clients see a reduction in erythema after 24 hours of treatment. Specific post treatment instructions will be given to you by our specialist practitioner .
There are three phases involved in the wound-healing process:
Phase I (Inflammation phase) – The piercing of the skin triggers a response in your immune system which disinfects the wounds, increases blood flow and initiates new tissue formation.
Phase II (Proliferation phase) – A new network of blood vessels develop in addition to wound rebuilding involving new granulation cells.
Phase III (Re-modelling phase) – The wound is replaced with new blood vessels and dermal tissues.
