What is MicroNeedling?
Micro-needling is one of the most popular skin procedure today. Also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), the treatment utilizes a new innovation in the field of esthetics to improve the skin’s overall appearance, with a minimum downtime.
MicroNeedling is good for:
Minimizing pore size
Skin Tone improvement
Visible results within several weeks
Improvement up to 6months after
How does it work?
Our licensed professional uses a hand-held device that works by creating microscopic punctures to the skin. This act triggers collagen and elastin production in the skin, two natural substances that keep the skin’s youthful volume, tone, and appearance.
Frequently Asked Questions:
How different is MicroNeedling from traditional laser treatments?
Laser therapy makes use of focused light to destroy certain skin pigments and to vaporize the skin. Although it can treat various skin conditions, it often leads to complications, especially when treating patients with darker skin complexion. On the other hand, CIT does not use heat in breaking down skin pigments and does the process mechanically instead. It is able to remodel collagen without using heat to make the procedure safer and more comfortable for clients. Many people prefer CIT since it comes with less downtime that takes as little as 24 hours.
What are the results of Microneedling?
The results of this skin repair treatment are significantly improved topical skin condition. The micro needles are also responsible for creating superficial micro-channels that make it easier for the active ingredients from topical creams, gels, and serums to be absorbed by the skin hence increasing their efficacity.
When will the results show?
Results can be noticed several days to weeks after treatment. These results continuously improve up to six months from the day of the procedure as collagen production is still in progress. Environ Products with medical grade Vitamin A are highly recommended to speed up and keep results.
What can you expect during the MicroNeedling procedure?
A new single sterile disposable needle tip is attached to the device. Your licensed Esthetician will apply a topical numbing gel to the treatment area for maximum comfort. The device is then gently pressed against your skin using a gliding motion until the entire area has been treated. The procedure usually takes about 30-45 minutes depending on the extent of the treatment area.
How many treatment sessions will you need?
It is recommended to receive a series of 6 treatments initially, that are spaced 2 to 4 weeks apart to achieve desired results. For people with more advanced damage and photo-aging, 8 to 10 sessions may be needed.
Is the Microneedling procedure painful?
Many people report a feeling of being scraped with a light sandpaper across the skin. However, we make it a point to provide comfort to our clients by applying a numbing cream to the treated area prior to the treatment and applying a cooling mask afterwards to minimize any discomfort.
