What is microneedling?
Micro needling is a cosmeceutical procedure; this is a procedure that achieves cosmetic results using medical-grade devices. Microneedling is also referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT).
Microneedling treatments can be performed on the face, neck décolletage, hands, tummy and the scalp to help which the stimulation of hair follicles. When microneedling, tiny needles from a microneedling pen are used to make microscopic punctures in the skin. The microscopic holes created during the treatment (also known as microchannels) trigger a trauma/healing response in your skin.
Your skin perceives that there has been a small injury and floods the tissue with the signal to naturally produce more collagen and elastin to heal the ‘wound.’ As the skin heals, skin imperfections soften and even disappear entirely. Microneedling will help treat fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, stretch marks, dryness, and dullness, making it an ideal anti-aging treatment.
As we grow older, the cycle of new skin growth slows and less collagen and elastin are produced. This results in fine lines, wrinkles and blemishes. Applying creams and serums on your face may succeed to moisturise the outer layer of dead skin, but no penetration takes place to the living part of the skin. The active molecules are simply too big to pass through the ultra protective epidermis layer. The fine needles in the Micro needling Pen creates “micro-channels” which allow for penetration of serums and ingredients which results in higher efficacy, meaning you get more out of your serums than usual.
- As the Microneedling Pen is moved over the skin, it creates a “micro-channel” which is why it’s recommended to use it with a serum which contains Hyaluronic Acid.
- We use an advanced skin care serum which, as well as containing Hyaluronic Acid, also contains Stem Cells to further improve the appearance and feel of the skin.
- These micro injuries also trigger the body’s natural healing process to create the appearance of fresher newer looking skin. Leaving you with a more youthful appearance.
