What side effects can occur after microneedling?
Microneedling is a type of treatment that uses small needles to cause tiny punctures in the skin. These small contact points encourage the body to create a wound healing response and renew the skin cells. As your skin repairs, the production of collagen and elastin is triggered to give an almost immediate plumping effect. It can also help tackle other skin damage such as scarring, dark marks, sun damage and ageing. Micro-Needling have seen phenomenal results. The best part: Micro-Needling is a fairly low-risk procedure with side effects tending to be few and far between.
The rolling equipment should be sterile and personal ; each patient should have his or her own roller, and these should be autoclaved before each session and the face should be cleaned and prepped before treatment to avoid cross-contamination or spread of bacteria.
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 Microneedling is also known as a form of collagen induction therapy.
Phoenix – The New Facelift. Want to look better without going under the knife? Then check out PixelRF – The real “micro-needling” Pixel treatment… It’s been dubbed the radio frequency facelift by beauty insiders because it’s the revolutionary, new skin tightening procedure. PixelRF will firm sagging skin around the jawline, neck and eyes – but that’s not all! PixelRF, whose Celebrity fans are believed to include Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, helps reduce appearance of pore size, plump up deep wrinkles such as those pesky nose-to-mouth lines, and reduce the appearance of acne scars, too. Microneedling works by injecting the skin in such a way that it responds by producing new collagen, which in turn plumps the skin and restores volume. It works well for texture, lines, volume loss and acne scarring.
The Ache: Treatments to minimize wrinkles and scars from acne or chickenpox can involve multiple MedSpa doctor visits with long recuperation periods, and often aren’t recommended for people with suntans.
Micro-Needling treatment is also colloquially referred to as ‘Dermaroller™’. It can be used on any part of the body including the face and is used to tighten skin, improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and has been found to be particularly effective in the treatment of acne scars. It has a low risk of hyperpigmentation and is very effective for all skin types. Micro Needling treatment is regarded as a good treatment to combine with other procedures. We particularly encourage clients to combine Micro-Needling treatment with platelet rich plasma. Best results are normally achieved with a series of sessions but the results are long lasting. The downtime is minimal and although results are not immediately obvious they are well worth the wait.
Testimony: Dempsey and Makepeace star Glynis Barber reveals the secrets of her youthful appearance: “ More than three decades have passed since her days in the TV crime drama Dempsey and Makepeace but actress Glynis Barber appears to have barely aged a day.And now the 60-year-old has revealed the secret to her youthful appearance – a treatment called Micro-Needling.
The process, reported to boost collagen levels by 1,000 per cent, involves tiny needles inserted into the face, which the actress insists ‘isn’t painful at all’, in a bid to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and lessen pigmentation.”
‘Make-up can cover a multitude of sins but it will never cover bad health or skin that’s been neglected,’ she said.
Micro-needling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive, non surgical and non ablative procedure for skin rejuvenation. It involves the use of a micro-needling device to create controlled skin injury which in turn ‘helps the skin help itself’. Skin needling provides results similar to laser resurfacing and chemical peels but at a fraction of the cost and with minimal downtime. Each fine needle punctures the skin and creates a tiny channel or micro-wound to the dermis. This controlled micro-injury triggers the body to stimulate fibroblasts and growth factors to fill these micro-wounds with the production of new collagen and elastin. In addition, new capillaries are formed.
There is a moderate amount of scientific evidence that has been published supporting the use of micro needling treatment. The majority of research has focused on the success of Microneedling in the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles and especially for the treatment of acne scars on the face and upper back. Good quality research as been conducted in these fields and delivered good results. More recent research has focused on the use of Micro-Needling for hair loss and also delivered good results called PRP for regrow hair. Researchers are also very excited about the use of Micro-Needling with platelet rich plasma and have identified much greater absorption of high strength skin serums when applied to the face after treatment sessions. Indeed after making multiple microscopic holes in the skin it is much easier for powerful vitamin serums to penetrate into the skin and have a much greater effect.
