Microneedling is safe and effective for all skin types
What is micro-needling?
In micro-needling we take microscopic needles and allow them to puncture the dermis of the skin. After the treatment the skin's natural healing mechanism kicks in and this stimulates your own collagen and elastin. The treatment is great for stretch marks, scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, open pores and blocked pores and overall, it will improve your skin health. The treatment looks painful, but is actually painless because our therapists numb the skin with a numbing cream before treatment.
What can you expect from your treatment?
Aiming for a flawless, younger-looking skin? A few years ago, people just have to accept the fact that the skin is aging, and we can do nothing about our wrinkles and fine lines. We can say, we’re lucky we’re here, living in this age and time, looking younger can be easily attained. One of the most advanced methods in the aesthetic industry today is micro-needling. A minimally invasive treatment that can encourage the birth of a fresher, more beautiful skin.
How micro-needling improves the skin
The key action of micro-needling that helps improve the skin is its power to stimulate the production of collagen. Needles puncture the top layer of the skin, and due to the natural physiology of skin, this procedure awakens the fibroblasts, and initiates new epidermal growth. The treatment releases collagen, elastin, and other components of the skin, which make it look younger, firmer and more elastic. Micro-needling also remodels the skin’s vascular matrix, which induces a tightening effect. With this procedure, as well as the serum applied together with the micro-needling device, it can improve the overall condition of the skin.
The advantages of microneedling
Microneedling targets many skin issues from acne to signs of aging. It tightens the skin, which is good for people who have large pores. It eliminates surface pigmentation. Micro-needling can also balance the oils of the skin, preventing future acne breakouts. Due to the improved collagen and elastin production, this treatment results in overall rejuvenation of the skin, resulting in a tighter, more radiant, clearer, and younger look.
Who are the candidates for micro-needling?
People who have acne-prone skin, who have acne marks, skin discolorations or wrinkles and fine lines are the best candidates for micro-needling. Especially for individuals who have aging skin, this treatment is recommended for them to achieve a younger-looking skin.
This treatment is for people who can tolerate minimal discomfort as the needles slightly penetrate the surface of the skin, meaning, it can be a bit painful. It may deliver a ‘scratchy’ sensation around the jawline and the forehead during the actual procedure. After the treatment, a sting may be felt, which is similar to the sensation after being exposed to the sun. However, the pain does not last for long, and goes away soon after just a couple hours.
