How does it work ?

The treatment uses a pen-shaped electric medical device that employs fine needles to penetrate the surface of the skin at a very high speed to rebuild elasticity and reduce the size of pores. The needles break down old scar tissue and stimulate skin cells to proliferate, resulting in the formation of new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibers, and in the formation of new capillaries, which improve blood supply. As the fine needles puncture the skin, they create channels or micro-wounds that trigger the body to fill them with new collagen and elastin, which leads to improved skin texture, firmness and hydration.

How do I take care of my skin after the treatment ?

Patients tolerate the procedure easily. However, side effects such as dryness, scaling, redness, or swelling may last for a few days (or longer).

It is recommended that patients protect their skin from the sun after the procedure.

When the procedure is used to treat acne scars, it is recommended that the patient clean his/her face with a gentle cleanser every night.? This should be repeated in the morning and products such as makeup and lotions can be used regularly.

Postoperative wound infections are rare because micro wounds close quickly after the procedure is completed.

If necessary, emollients or antibiotics may be prescribed.

Skin rejuvenation will be visible as soon as two weeks after the procedure or as much as six to eight months after.

Results for burn scar treatments can take between six months and one year to show.

What should I avoid on my skin after the treatment ?

AHAs (glycolic Acid), retinol, acidic or active ingredients should not be used for two to three days after treatment to allow for maximum healing. Sun exposure is not recommended and sunscreen is encouraged.

How many treatments do i need and how often can Microneedling procedures be repeated ?

Each patients skin condition determines the number of treatments that are needed. Moderate acne scars may need between three and four treatments, while thermal burns and stretch marks may need five.? Conditions such as wrinkles caused by aging, one or two refresher treatments are recommended per year.

Microneedling can be safely repeated every four to six weeks as needed. Collagen induction requires at least three treatments, while scar reduction requires between three and six. Four to six weeks should pass between one treatment and the next. Microneedling can be used on all parts of the body (neck, d?collet?, arms, legs, etc). Usually results begin to appear after the first treatment.
