Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, involves the use of a skin pen which is a device equipped with fine, sterile needles that create controlled micro-injuries on the skin's surface. These micro-injuries trigger the body's natural healing response, prompting the production of collagen and elastin – two essential proteins responsible for skin firmness and elasticity.
Benefits of Microneedling:
The primary benefit of microneedling lies in its ability to stimulate collagen production. As we age, collagen levels decline, leading to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Microneedling helps fight this by promoting the growth of fresh collagen, resulting in plumper, more youthful-looking skin.
Microneedling has proven effective in minimizing the appearance of scars, including those caused by acne or injuries. The small micro-injuries induce the body to generate new, healthy tissue, gradually fading the scars and promoting a smoother complexion.
Improved Texture and Tone:
Uneven skin texture and tone can be a source of frustration for many. Microneedling helps address these concerns by promoting the regeneration of skin cells, leading to a more even skin tone and improved texture.
Enhanced Absorption of Skincare Products:
The micro-channels created during microneedling facilitate better absorption of topical skincare products. This means that your favorite skin care can penetrate deeper into the skin, maximizing their effectiveness.
The Microneedling Procedure:
Before undergoing microneedling, it's crucial to consult with one of our qualified skincare professional. They will assess your skin type, discuss your goals, and determine whether microneedling is the right option for you.
On the day of the procedure, the skin is cleansed, and a topical numbing cream is applied to ensure your comfort during the treatment.
The microneedling device is then gently moved across the skin's surface. The tiny needles create controlled punctures, triggering the skin's natural healing response. This full procedure can take up to 45 minutues to 1 hour.
Following the procedure, you may experience some redness and mild swelling, but these side effects are temporary. It's essential to follow post-procedure care instructions provided by our skincare professional to optimize results and minimize any potential discomfort.
