A micro-needling facial is a treatment that uses needles to stimulate the skin’s surface, which helps it regain its elasticity. It’s perfect for those who want to treat their acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, and other marks associated with aging.
The process begins with a pre-booked advanced detailed consultation where you’ll discuss what you’re looking for. We will then apply a numbing cream to your face and perform an initial assessment of your skin condition. Afterward, we will use the micro-needling device to stamp tiny needles to create tiny micro-injuries on your skin. The micro-needling treatment works by stimulating the fibroblast cells, which causes your skin to produce more collagen and elastin, resulting in firmer and tighter skin. A series of monthly micro-needling treatments is recommended, and cutting-edge clinical home care products can greatly improve the appearance of acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, crepey looking skin, and may even improve redness present in the skin by stimulating the production of skin proteins such as collagen, elastin, and natural moisturizing factors. This helps to restore the skin’s elasticity and tightness.
Additionally, wrinkles, uneven skin texture, red, pink, and brown hyperpigmentation, age spots, as well as sunburns can be reduced through micro-needling. Our clients also notice a visible tightening of the skin and significant pore size reduction. Hypertrophic scars, cellulite issues, and stretch marks can also be helped with our micro-needling treatments using the evolved and innovative needling device.
Our latest micro-needling treatment stimulates the outer-most skin layer while causing minimal damage, which triggers an immune response that induces cellular regeneration. Anabolic growth hormones and cytokines are released during this process, which leads to the synthesis of both collagen fibers and elastin.
The micro-channeling modality, as opposed to fractional lasers, exfoliation treatments, and chemical peels, stimulates the gene expression of peptides, growth factors, and cytokines without harming the dermis. Collagen and elastin are produced in greater amounts thanks to our latest micro-needling cutting-edge technology, which improves skin elasticity, firmness, suppleness, and texture.
Micro-needling techniques are used to rejuvenate your skin. You may experience some downtime when using these treatments, but this typically lasts just a few days or less than a week.
As far as side effects are concerned, micro-needling typically causes a little bit of swelling and redness in the area being treated. You may also experience some mild itching or discomfort during the treatment.
Remember that the skin might appear a little flushed on the first day and then less each subsequent day. The good thing is that this procedure won’t require you to miss a day of work. You can also wear suggested makeup typically after 2 days. On the contrary, recovering from laser treatments can frequently take several weeks, and they can also be very painful.
Additionally, almost any part of the face or body can be micro-needled for a complete skin makeover. Since some patients may experience redness, swelling, dry patches, skin peeling, surface texture, and mild inflammatory response during this healing phase, it’s recommended that you wear sunscreen over this area for up to five days following your treatment. Similarly, between 24 and 48 hours after the treatment, it is advised against using skin care products, cleansing the skin, putting on makeup, or engaging in strenuous activity that might cause sweating to prevent infection of the skin’s micro-wounds.
The majority of patients compare the first few days following treatment to having a sunburn. Right after treatment, clients may encounter skin redness, tightness, and inflammation, but these side effects usually go away pretty quickly. Additionally, you might experience some spot bleeding both during and right after the procedure.
Sunburn, pregnancy, irritated or broken skin, breast-feeding, herpes virus, hair removal by laser, use of photosensitizing prescription drugs, such as Accutane, within the previous 6 months, and the application of retinol or at-home acid products within the previous 2-3 days are some common contraindications to micro-needling.
Microneedling does not employ harsh methods that could cause the skin to become significantly inflamed, such as light or heat therapy. Thus, the epidermis is not substantially harmed. These factors make microneedling safe and efficient for all skin types.
Furthermore, because microneedling carries a relatively low risk of causing pigmentation problems than stronger laser treatments, it is also best suited for people with darker skin tones as opposed to laser treatments.
Typically Yes! After the initial evaluation, the therapist is generally required by Texas Medical Board Code 193.17 to complete a medical clearance exam before beginning this micro-needling treatment.
