Also know as collagen-induction therapy is a nonsurgical treatment that penetrates your skin’s surface with tiny needles to improve its appearance. It may sound a little medieval, but most skin rejuvenation treatments, whether laser or a chemical peel, trigger a similar kind of wound-healing response to create a structural and cosmetic benefit.
The procedure can help smooth lines and wrinkles, even skin tone (including stubborn melasma), refine enlarged pores, tighten skin, and fade scars and stretch marks.
How It Works
By creating microscopic punctures in the skin, microneedling creates thousands of tiny injuries. This triggers a healing response that releases a cascade of growth factors, which in turn boosts production of the body’s own collagen (the protein fibers that keep skin smooth and supple).
It’s a form of fractional treatment, which means only a fraction of the skin’s surface is affected. This means that recovery time is relatively short.
Microneedling also allows ingredients to penetrate dramatically better and work more effectively, by creating channels for topical products to be absorbed. “As a result, the skin looks progressively better over time.
Micro-needling can help with our other facial treatments like HIFU to help enhance areas that other treatments can not reach and our signature 3D Hydro2 Facial and Mesotherapy from our Skintech treatment. Also after a treatment of cavitation or Radio Frequency micro needling can help to reduce stretch marks on the body
Benefits Of Microneedling
During a microneedling procedure, we deliver controlled non-surgical injury underneath the skin’s surface. By doing this we induce the skin to produce new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibers (neo-collagenesis). We also induce the formation of new capillaries for an improved blood supply (neo-angiogenesis). The benefits include (but are not limited to):
Facial rejuvenation, restoring skin elasticity, production of new collagen
Improving acne scars and keloids.
Reducing fine lines and deep expression lines
Treating stretch marks
Decreasing hyperpigmentation and melasma
Improving the delivery of nutrients through the skin
