Diminish your lines and wrinkles with Jejuvenating Micro-Needling Treatments (also known as Skin-Needling).
Micro-needling stimulates collagen in the lower layers of the skin (dermis) and thickens it. This creates a smooth complexion and also improves dilated blood vessels.
It’s the alternative to chemical peels and laser resurfacing!! It’s like restoring volume to an old mattress (making it thicker and firmer).
Additionally, with micro-needling:
You can improve acne scarring and other forms of scars.
There’s no “downtime” necessary since the healing time is rapid.
There is mild sun sensitivity to the treatment. I recommend a 30 SPF daily application to prevent photoaging.
The treatment begins with a topical anesthetic to numb the area. A needling instrument abrades the area breaking up old collagen in the line or wrinkle. The needle stimulates collagen under the epidermis at once and penetrates the skin. There is slight swelling and redness.
Needling stimulates the upper skin, promoting the remarkable healing response of the body.
The wrinkle reacts and induces collagen-producing cells at the puncture site. This means collagen lays down and “fills” the wrinkle within six months.
Growth factors increase collagen deposition and maturation.
This needling method mimics results obtained with a laser. At the same time, the skin reddens and swells immediately after the treatment. The skin turns to a moderate pink, the swelling decreases, and it is usually covered with make-up within 4 to 5 days.
Furthermore, collagen and elastin will build, and the skin will tighten up. Repeat the process three times every six weeks during the treatment period. Complete healing usually occurs within one month. Repeat the treatment once the epidermis has completely healed.
Contraindications say Microneedling is not for high-pigmented skin. It can cause discoloration or hyperpigmentation. Microneedling is not for people with diabetes, herpes, STDs, and keloidal scarring.
