The procedure involved in treatment is commonly known as Micro Skin Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy and is designed to trigger new collagen synthesis in the skin, leading to younger, brighter and healthier-looking skin. As we move the device over your skin, numerous, ultra-fine micro-needles designed to penetrate through the epidermis create microscopic punctures on the skin’s surface. The skin plumps and thickens as a natural recovery response to this stimulus, ultimately reducing the appearance of scars, fine lines and other skin texture changes. By opening the skin in this way you not only dramatically increase the penetration of the face mask that follows but you also create miniature perforations that stimulate the skin’s healing mechanisms, increasing production of many important factors for a healthy skin. This is an innovative product that provides phenomenal results similar to laser resurfacing, fraxel or IPL but at a lower cost. There is virtually no down time for the patient and within 24 hours the patient’s skin has little to no redness or inflammation.
Medical Micro Skin Needling is a non ablative treatment because it does not remove the top layer of skin. Alternative ablative skin treatments such as lasers, chemical peels and dermabrasions do remove the top layer of skin and subsequently require more down time to recover. However, in situations where the top layer of skin is affected with more severe skin discolorations, deep wrinkles and extremely poor skin texture, then ablative treatments may be preferred. Unlike ablative procedures which are mainly used for facial skin, skin needling can be used on all parts of the body (neck, décolleté, arms, leg or face).
It can take between 4- 6 weeks before visible signs of skin regeneration are seen and the process will continue to evolve over the following months providing a gradual improvement. Although a single treatment can provide a noticeable result, ideally a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 2-3 weeks apart is recommended to achieve the best results.
