Micro-Needling the Secret to Flawless Skin!
Micro-Needling… It’s been dubbed the fountain of youth treatment by beauty insiders because it’s the revolutionary, new skin tightening procedure. Micro-Needling will firm sagging skin around the jawline, neck and eyes – but that’s not all; because the treatment kills off the bacteria that causes spots and minimizes the activity of oil glands in the skin, it also helps to reduce acne – leaving you with younger, cleaner skin. Microneedling involves using a mechanized device to make thousands of miniscule needle punctures in the outermost layers of the skin. By precisely controlling the depth, spacing, frequency, and pattern of these needle pricks, the Micro-Needling Treatment stimulates your body to make more collagen in the areas where it needs it the most.
Collagen and elastin are the predominant components of the skin and arranged in a regular lattice formation. Collagen provides the skin with tensile strength and elastin provides skin with good snap back or recoil. With age collagen and elastin decrease and they lose their geometric lattice formation accounting for reduced strength and less elasticity. Micro-Needling treatment inflicts multiple micro pin pricks in the skin using needles, up to a depth of 2mm, penetrating the important layers of the skin. This results in micro injuries to the skin that are not visible. The skin is deceived into initiating a wound healing response. This ultimately results in increased collagen and elastin and rearrangement of the lattice. This yields improvement in skin appearance, strength and elasticity. Hence Micro-Needling is also known as a form of collagen induction therapy. It’s touted as a mini facelift that can treat skin imperfections from acne scars and stretch marks to lax skin and wrinkles, has virtually no down time and a price tag that’s within reach.
Microneedling Therapy also called Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), and Percutaneous (through the skin) Collagen Induction (PCI), is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of the MD Needle Pen.
The mechanical action of the pen allows the needles to puncture the skin and create a controlled injury at a specific depth. Each puncture creates a channel that triggers the bodies natural healing process to fill these micro wounds by producing new collagen and elastin in the papillary dermis. In addition, new capillaries are formed for improved blood supply. With Microneedling, the top layer of the skin is parted without being damaged, leaving the skin intact. It does not “burn” your skin like peels or more invasive lasers. The needle penetration depth can be adjusted from 0.25mm to 2.50mm into the skin depending on the area of the body and the skin condition being treated. Using skin needling consistently will trigger the bodies repair process until the desired level of skin rejuvenation is achieved.
Microneedling results in the production of new collagen and elastin, improvement in skin tone and texture, firmness as well as reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks.
What Micro-Needling Can Treat:
Acne Scars – Fine Lines & Moderate wrinkles – Skin Laxity – Pore Size – Texture, Tone, Color – Stretch Marks – Traumatic Scars – Photo Aging & Sun Damage – Hyperpigmentation & Hypopigmentation – Hair Loss – Drug Delivery
As amazing as collagen induction therapy with Microneedling is, its effect on your skin is best combined with synergistic and scientifically proven skin care products. Prescription strength retinol, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, ferulic acid, and titanium are medical-grade products that will improve your skin and make your microneedling results last longer. Microneedling makes your skin more permeable to absorption of medically active ingredients, so use of these products after your treatment is the best way to get great skin.
