What is Micro-needling? How does it work at your Med Spa?
Micro-needling is a nonsurgical, non-ablative, and minimally invasive procedure facial rejuvenation treatment. This treatment is also known as collagen induction therapy in some other med spas. We use a micro-needle to create a controlled skin injury. While this may sound extreme, what we are doing is tricking your skin to create the natural healing factors that repair your skin when injured. Instead of repair, it will restore your skin to a more youthful appearance!
When our fine needle punctures the skin, it creates what we call a micro-wound. We say it is a “controlled injury” because we go about making these punctures in a very specific area of your space and a very specific pattern. When this injury triggers your skin, it begins to produce more collagen and elastin to fill the wound. New capillaries are also formed.
The neovascularisation and neocollagenesis following treatment lead to the reduction of scars and skin rejuvenation. You will have improved skin texture, firmness, and hydration.
Micro-needling performed by professionals is widely considered to be one of the safest skin treatment procedures available today.
Why would I come in for a micro-needling session?
Micro-needling has been shown to be useful for:
- Fading stretch marks
- Reducing scars (including hypertrophic scars) caused by acne, surgery or thermal burns
- Dyspigmentation, e.g. in melasma
- Tightening sagging skin.
- Reducing fine lines and deep wrinkles
What should I expect from my first micro-needling treatment at Revive Health?
About 30 minutes before the start of your treatment we will apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area to reduce any possible discomfort. Patients generally say that a micro-needling treatment has the same sensation as a brush. Once started, the procedure usually takes only about 30 minutes. Some patients do experience skin peeling and redness after treatment, but this can be countered by applying Skin Ceuticals Hydrating B5 Gel.
How many micro-needling treatments will I need for best results?
We see the best results with patients who have treatments four to six weeks apart. To maintain these results, we suggest three treatments and for patients not to wait more than six weeks between them.
What device do you use for micro-needling?
At Revive Skin Health we use the Collagen P.I.N. device. It can be used up to a 3mm depth and has 36 needle points per tip. This is one of the best tools on the market due to the depth and points that can be micro-channeled into the skin.
