WHAT IS IT What is Micro-Needling. Micro-needling, or collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive advanced fractional skin resurfacing treatment that uses tiny sterile stainless steel needles to make minuscule, evenly spaced, punctures through the dermis down to the epidermis, initiating a reparative response that rejuvenates the skin tissue. The pen shaped hand-piece vibrates the needles over the skins surface, causing controlled channels of trauma and pinprick bleeding, inducing the body to start a healing cascade that triggers the proliferation of fibroblasts (cells) to lay down new collagen and elastin fibres, adding thicker, stronger and more histologically youthful looking skin. The elicited response stimulates basal cell activity within the dermis for up to 3 months; improving fine lines, acne scarring, sun damage and pigmentation as new skin cells are laid down in a more orderly orientation, reducing skin texture and improving complexion. The procedure is also suitable for all skin types as the fine filament needles don't disrupt the melanocytes responsible for the production of skin pigmentation. This medical-grade cosmetic procedure is the golden child of the dermal world, it is minimally painful with excellent results achieved from the accumulative effect of multiple treatments. Micro-needling is a widely used safe and simple regenerative skin treatment that has a proven track record for a variety of cosmetic objectives.

WHAT TO EXPECT What to expect from Micro-Needling. This is a minimally-invasive procedure that can produce mild discomfort with minimal down-time. It can be carried out on all skin types The use of a numbing gel may be applied to minimise discomfort, however due to regulation change, can not be provided by the clinic and must be brought with the patient to the treatment The use of an AHA for two weeks leading up to the treatment can increase its efficacy Micro Needling is a fractional facial rejuvenation skin treatment carried out in a medi-spa setting on a salon treatment table Firstly, a deep cleanse will be carried out to ensure the skin is free of oil, debris and ready for the treatment An alcohol swab is passed over the cleansed face to kill bacteria and help minimise the risk of infection The micro needling treatment will then begin. The technician will apply an active cosmeceutical to the skin, whilst holding the skin tight and systematically passing the micro needle hand-piece over the face in a gridded fashion. The procedure itself has mild discomfort and it is common for the skin to feel sunburnt post-treatment Each area is passed over four times. Up, down. Left to right. Then in a diagonal. A nourishing vitamin B serum is applied at the end of the treatment to help soothe the skin. Vitamin B is a powerful nutrient that plays an important role in mitochondrial energy metabolism within the cell, helping to improve cellular function. It is also beneficial for barrier function as it boosts the production of the cell outer membrane. A broad spectrum SPF is then applied to help protect the damaged skin from UV radiation and the possibility of a pigmentary response. SPF should be worn at all times, especially for the first week post treatment as the barrier function is impaired. The skin will be red and sensitivity post treatment. This typically clears within 24 to 48 hours For best results the patient should be treated every 4-6 weeks for 3-6 treatments, depending on the condition of the skin
BENEFITS Benefits of Micro-Needling. Micro Needling is a fractional treatment as it causes controlled channels of trauma in the skin surface while leaving the surrounding tissue intact and healthy. This rejuvenation technique means less risk of infection, quicker recovery and less downtime. Cosmeceuticals products can be used throughout a micro needling treatment as the channels created provide the perfect gateway into the skin, allowing active ingredients to reach deeper into skin increasing their efficacy. The reparative cascade initiated within the skin promotes the proliferation of fibroblasts that lay down collagen and elastin fibres; normalising dysfunction, thickening the skin, increasing elasticity and helping to diminish fine lines and wrinkles by creating new skin cells. Micro needling has excellent regenerative capability and greatly improves the appearance of enlarged pores, scars and uneven skin texture by stimulating basal cell activity Micro trauma causes increased blood flow to the tissue improving over-all skin health. Studies have shown this to be beneficial in the fight against male hair loss (Androgenic Alopecia) Micro channels reduce pigmentation within the skin, resulting in a brighter more even complexion
INDICATIONS Indications for Micro-Needling. Anti-aging and wrinkle reduction Skin rejuvenation Raised, fibrous scars (not keloid) Enlarged pores Uneven coarse skin tone Stretch marks (Non cystic) Acne and atrophic post acne scarring Pigmentation Androgenic Alopecia Active cosmeceutical infusion
