Micro-needling, a procedure with amazing result
Micro-needling treatment allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair mechanism by creating micro-“injuries” in the skin, which triggers new collagen synthesis, yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring.
What is collagen?
Collagen is a hard, insoluble and fibrous protein that makes up one-third of the protein in the human body. 3 In the majority of collagens, the molecules are packed together to form very similar long thin fibrils.
As we age, collagen production declines — it’s happening as you read this! You’ll see notice it physically: looser skin, more wrinkles, and less elasticity. Increasing collagen levels can help your skin look firmer, increase smoothness, and help your skin cells keep renewing and repairing normally.
The result is smoother, firmer and younger-looking skin.
Micro-needling procedures are performed in a safe and precise manner with the use of the sterile needle head. The procedure is normally completed within 30-60 minutes, depending on the required treatment and anatomical site.
Benefits of Micro-needling
- Stimulates the production of collagen tightening the skin (CIT Collagen Induction Therapy)
- Eliminates or reduces crow’s feet and lip lines
- Eliminates or reduces forehead lines and frown lines
- Assists in the absorption of cosmetic products
- Reduces the appearance of wrinkles, pigmentation and sun damage
- Treats acne scars and chicken pock scars
- Reduces the appearance of scarring and stretch marks
- Reduces the appearance of enlarged pores
- Helps with rosacea
After the procedure, the skin will be red and flushed in appearance in a similar way to moderate sunburn. You may also experience skin tightness and mild sensitivity to touch on the area being treated. This will diminish greatly after a few hours following treatments and within the next 24 hours, the skin will be completely healed. After three days there is barely any evidence that the procedure has taken place.
Cannot be done:
Micro-needling treatment is contraindicated for patients with:
- keloid scars
- collagen vascular diseases or cardiac abnormalities
- a hemorrhagic disorder or hemostatic dysfunction
- active bacterial or fungal infection.
Precautions and Warnings:
Micro-needling treatment has not been evaluated in the following patient populations, as such, precautions should be taken when determining whether to treat: scars and stretch marks less than one year old; women who are pregnant or nursing; keloid scars; patients with history of eczema, psoriasis and other chronic conditions; patients with history of actinic (solar) keratosis;patients with history of herpes simplex infections; diabetics or patients with wound-healing deficiencies; patients on immunosuppressive therapy; and skin with presence of raised moles or warts or targeted area.
