Rejuvenate your skin with Micro needling Collagen induction Therapy!
As our skin ages, it becomes loose, thin, and less elastic. This is due to a reduction in fibroblasts, the building blocks of collagen proteins. The result is wrinkles, sagging, and a general dull appearance – just the opposite of the fresh beauty that we desire!
What is Micro Needling?
Also known as Skin Needling, Percutaneous Collagen Induction (PCI), and Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) or Transdermal Delivery because it creates small channels into the deep layers of the skin, which break up the old collagen strands, and stimulates your own body to produce new collagen and elastin. The fresh collagen rejuvenates your skin improving texture and tightness, helping the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, scars and stretchmarks and correcting pigmentation variations and skin imperfections.
Micro Needling is a rejuvenating treatment for the skin, leaving the skin revitalized and younger looking. By persistently triggering the healing process by using skin needling the body continues to heal itself until the desired level of skin repair is achieved.
How does micro needling work?
The treatment involves 12 - 36 micro needles through a pen over the area make tiny punctures in the top of the skin. These small micro channels created in the skin, not only triggers the body’s natural response to new collagen production but also allow any products applied to penetrate deep into the skin and heal the skin further. The result is a plumping and thickening of the skin, evening out of imperfections and discoloration and improved blood supply.
Instant Plumping That’s Locked into the Skin
Natural serums, oils and preparations (I am a fan of powerful concentrations of Retinol and Hyaluronic Acid) are applied immediately after Micro-Needling, as the channels the needles have made in the skin also allows the products to enter far deeper into the skin than they would without the skin needling being done first. This will significantly aid the success of the treatment as the skin’s ability to soak up nutrients increases by whooping 3000% for an hour after the treatment!!
What conditions can be treated or improved with Medical Micro Needling?
BEFORE MICRO-NEEDLING TREATMENT:
Prior to the Micro-Needling treatment, please observe the following:
No Retin-A products or applications 12 hours prior to your treatment.
No auto-immune therapies or products 12 hours prior to your treatment.
No prolonged sun exposure to the face 24 hours prior to your treatment.
We will not be administered on sunburned skin.
On the day of the treatment, please keep your face clean and do not apply makeup.
If an active or extreme breakout occurs before treatment, please consult your practitioner.
WHAT CAN BE EXPECTED?
After your Micro needling treatment, please be aware and observe the following:
Immediately after your treatment, you will look as though you have a moderate to severe sunburn and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. This is normal and will subside after 1 to 2 hours and will normally diminish within the same day or 24 hours. You may see slight redness after 24 hours but only in minimal areas or spots.
Your practitioner will discuss post-procedure skincare following the treatment to help soothe, calm, and protect the skin. Continue to treat the skin gently for 3 days. Normal skincare can be resumed again after Day 3.
AFTER MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT:
Be certain to adhere to the following post-treatment instructions:
CLEAN – Use a gentle cleanse and tepid water to cleanse the face for the following 72 hours and gently dry the treated skin. Always make sure that your hands are clean when touching the treated area.
HEAL – Serum antioxidants are recommended post-treatment as the properties are ideal to help heal the skin. These products can help soothe the skin and lessen irritation.
HYDRATE – Following your Micro Needling treatment, your skin may feel drier than normal. Hyaluronic Acid is an ideal ingredient to hydrate and restore the skin back to perfect balance.
STIMULATE – In the days following your Micro Needling treatment, and as the skin starts to regenerate, collagen stimulating peptides are ideal to continue the stimulation.
MAKEUP – It is recommended that makeup should not be applied for 24 hours after the procedure. Do not apply any makeup with a makeup brush, especially if it is not clean.
PROTECT – Immediately after the procedure, if you’re in the sun apply a broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen with an SPF 25 or greater.
A chemical free sunscreen is highly recommended.
WHAT TO AVOID:
To ensure the proper healing environment, be certain to observe the following:
For at least 3 days post treatment, do NOT use any Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Beta Hydroxy Acid, Retinol (Vitamin A), Vitamin C (in a low pH formula) or anything perceived as ‘active’ skincare.
Avoid intentional and direct sunlight for 24 hours. No tanning beds.
Do not go swimming for at least 24 hours post-treatment.
No exercising or strenuous activity for the first 24 hours post-treatment. Sweating and gym environments are harmful, rife with bacteria, and may cause adverse reactions.
