What is Microneedling?
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a non-surgical and non-ablative procedure for skin rejuvenation. It is used to improve fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation, scaring and other skin texture irregularities. A Micro needling device is used to create tiny punctures on the top layer of the skin. These micro-injuries prompt the bodies healing response to create new collagen and elastin. A series of Micro needling treatments will leave your skin looking smoother, restored and rejuvenated.
The benefits of microneedling can be significantly enhanced by adding PRP, platelet rich plasma as part of your skin rejuvenation treatment. PRP is loaded with natural growth factors for a collagen-boosting effect that will leave your skin feeling tighter and increasing the natural radiance and glow.
Microneedling treatments will improve your skin texture, elasticity, smooth fine lines, wrinkles, minimize pores and promote skin tightening leaving you with firmer, smoother and younger looking skin.
Microneedling is very versatile treatment ,it can be used on multiple areas of the body. Face, neck decollate, hands and eye area.
First, your skin is numbed with a topical cream, so the treatment is comfortable. The needling device is then passed over your skin to create micro-channels and trigger skin regeneration.
There is no real recovery time after microneedling . Everyone varies in the healing process, but most have minor swelling and reddened skin, like a mild sunburn, for one to three days after the procedure. These side effects are minor, and well worth the results.
You will need some patience to experience the full results of your microneedling treatment. As your skin produces more collagen over the following four to six weeks, your skin will become firmer, more rejuvenated, and evenly toned.
