What is Micro-needling?

Micro-needling is a scientifically based process that promote the growth of NEW Collagen. As we age our skins ability to produce collagen slows down and also depending on our lifestyle and unhealthy habits such as too much sun, poor eating, alcohol, smoking and most of all, a lack of hydration speeds up the process.
GOOD NEWS!! J Your skin has the power to regenerate collagen. Micro-needling is small hand held device that contains 9 small needles to create micro-injuries in the skin which trigger fibroblasts to rejuvenate collagen, elastin and also helps produce cell reproduction and healing.

MICRO-NEEDLING HELP:

Micro-needling / CIT: is suitable for most skin types.

Hyperpigmentation is very rare with micro-needling because dermal penetration is so superficial it does not extend into the layer of the skin containing melanocytes. HOWEVER, failure to follow post treatment instructions, can put you at risk for hyperpigmentation.
YOU MUST AVOID sun exposure for 1 to 3 weeks after micro-needling treatment. You should also wear a daily SPF moisturizer and avoid picking or peeling of the skin during healing period, 4 weeks.

What to Expect During Your Micro-Needling Treatment?

After your skin is cleansed, a topical numbing cream is applied and left on for 20-30 minutes.
Once the skin is numb, essentials vitamins and peptide based serums are applied. Using a single use, disposable, micro-needling device which is gently moved along the skin to create microscopic injuries to the epidermis (the outer most layer of the skin.) That’s enough to stimulate healing causing collagen reproduction, followed by an LED light mask for 15-20 minutes and a custom blended mask created for your skins Individual needs.

What to Expect After the Treatment? Is There Any Down Time?

There is generally minimal downtime. The first day you may experience some tenderness and redness, similar to a moderate sunburn. There may be some slight swelling & skin tightness. The redness and swelling will begin to subside 4-48 hours after treatment. By day 3-4 you will start flaking/peeling lightly. At this point and for 2 weeks after the treatment, your skin will be renewing cells. We recommend a gentle exfoliation, Yonka-Gommage 305, at least 2 times a week.
You can apply make-up after 48 hours.

How Long Until I See Results?

This varies from person to person. Some clients notice brighter, tighter, smoother skin within 2-3 days of their first treatment. However, depending on what you are looking to accomplish, it can take up to 4-6 weeks before visible signs of regeneration, and multiple treatments to get the results you want. The regeneration process will continue over 6-8 months when the collagen has fully remodeled.

How Long Will the Results Last?

Skin is always evolving. With time, your collagen production will start to decrease to your normal production rate for your age. However, you can maintain your treatment yearly to keep your skin stimulating indefinitely. Scare reduction is permanent as long as you do NOT cause new injury to the skin. Once your body replaces scar tissue with healthy new skin, you will retain it.
