SKIN NEEDLING

 

Skin Needling, also known as Micro Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy (C.I.T) is an automated-micro needling therapy system that vertically pierces the skin to naturally stimulate collagen and elastin with minimal epidermal damage. This enhances rejuvenation results and is far safer for the client because there is much less epidermal damage. The automatic, high speed vibrating function of the device increases the effectiveness of the treatment by rapidly creating quick multiple insertions which dramatically reduce pain and discomfort for the patient. A great treatment for all skin types.

 

HOW DOES SKIN NEEDLING WORK?

The treatment introduces fine needles to the skin to create microscopic channels. In doing so the dermis is encouraged to produce new collagen and elastin which generates new skin cells. The skin then becomes thicker, plumper and more youthful. The device that is covered with many ultra-fine needles is run across the targeted areas to create small channels in the skin. As the device rolls along the skin, these needles penetrate the upper layers of skin producing thousands of tiny puncture marks or micro-medical needle- channels in the skin. 

These microscopic wounds, which heal within a few hours, stimulate the skin’s healing process and increase collagen and elastin production. Skin Needling is gentle enough to stimulate collagen production without producing scar tissue or increasing pigmentation. 

The epidermis is affected by this process as evinced by redness and superficial bleeding. The presence of bleeding and inflammation then prompts the body’s natural healing process. During the healing process, growth factors, connective tissue proteins, and other chemicals involved in faster healing are produced at an efficient rate. Collagen, elastin, fibroblasts, and other growth factors then replace the injuries which will then be the foundation of new skin. Based on studies, four sessions of microneedling increase collagen and elastin production by up to 400% within a 6-month treatment period.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF SKIN NEEDLING?

  1. Stimulates Epidermal growth factor (EGF) which is a protein that stimulates cell growth

  2. Increases the density of the epidermis (first layer of the skin)

  3. Strengthens collagen in vessel walls and connective tissues

  4. Increases availability of cell nutrients

  5. Increase platelet growth factors attracting monocytes releasing interleukin 10 (anti-inflammatory cytokine)

WHAT SKIN CONCERNS DOES IT TREAT?

  • Mild to moderate acne scarring

  • Surgical scarring

  • Fine lines and wrinkles

  • Stretch marks

  • Pore size

  • Skin texture

  • Keloid scarring

  • Even out skin tone irregularities due to hyperpigmentation or aging

  • Reduce broken capillaries or spider veins

  • Reduce pigmentation and sun spots 

  • Rejuvenate by firming, lifting, toning and sculpting sagging skin

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING MY SERVICE?

During the procedure, the client will be numbed for 15 minutes, then the skin needling treatment will follow. Each client has a new disposable needle cartridge. The treatment may cause bleeding and redness. After the skin needling treatment, a 100% Hyaluronic Acid Face Sheet Mask will be placed over the face for 5 minutes. Followed by Red LED Light Therapy for 10 minutes. Overall, treatments are up to 1.5 hours on full face and can be longer if more areas are added in the same session or when completing a body area.

PREPARATION AND AFTERCARE

Preparation

  • Avoid sun tanning or tanning creams for at least a week. 

  • Avoid taking autoimmune disease medication for 24 hours.

  • Arrive with a clean face and no makeup.

  • Do not use Retin-A or other exfoliating creams 24 to 72 hours prior

  • Recent chemical peel or other skin procedure, such as filler injections, should wait two weeks before . 

  • Refrain from waxing the skin to be treated for a few days

  • Must not have an active cold sore. 

  • Avoid alcohol 24 hours prior to the appointment

  • Do not have Skin Needling performed if you have used Accutane (Isotretinoin), an acne medication, in the last six months. During Accutane therapy and up to 6 months after completing isotretinoin, the skin is highly sensitive and changes of scarring are high; therefore, we recommend clients to wait at least 6 months after completing therapy 

Aftercare

  • Use Serums: Serum can moisturise the skin and help hydrate and retain the water levels in the skin post-treatment. Combine with a repair cream for intense moisture. 

  • Use a gentle cleanser: In place of active products, a very mild cleanser and barrier cream is recommended to keep your skin clean and soothe any resultant dry skin and flakiness. 

  • Use collagen stimulating peptides: Collagen stimulating peptides will help your skin to prepare and recover from the procedure. These peptides work by aiding in the stimulation of collagen production and intensify the effects of the skin needling treatment.

  • Apply a cooling face mask: You may experience some skin irritation following skin needling, therefore we recommend the use of a cooling face mask to reduce inflammation and redness and to make your skin feel more comfortable.

  • Drink plenty of water: Drink plenty of water both before and after the procedure. Keeping well hydrated will assist in faster healing and skin rejuvenation.

  • Once the skin has healed, use sunscreen: While it’s important to give the sunscreen a miss for the first few days following the procedure, we do advise that you use a broad-spectrum sunscreen once your skin has healed, to prevent unwanted pigmentation and sun damage.
