WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?
Microneedling is basically a collagen induction therapy whereby the skins own healing mechanism is utilized to rejuvenate skin and treat ailments such as large pores, scarring, and fine lines. This technique uses a pen-like device embedded with multiple fine needles. This piece of equipment is very maneuverable and perfect for treating areas such as the face and neck, but also the chest, abdomen, and any other area of the body that may have a scar. This pen is then slid across the surface of the skin to microscopically wound the skin and induce collagen production, resulting in a glowy and rejuvenated look. Anybody suffering from scarring (whether it be due to acne, past wounds, etc.), discoloration from acne, large pores, fine lines/wrinkles, stretch marks, and other such ailments will greatly benefit from Microneedling.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Microneedling technique uses a pen-like device embedded with multiple very fine needles, whose speed and depth can be adjusted depending on client needs, in order to conduct treatment. The pen is slid across targeted areas in about 3-4 passes at different depths so that the needles can finely penetrate the superficial layers of the dermis to create tiny, microscopic cuts, scrapes and scratches on the surface of the skin. This process is akin to wounding the skin, which is why the body’s healing mechanism comes into effect. Through such damage, the body is prompted to engage in its natural healing process and produce new collagen and elastin fibers in areas of damage. The result of this process is that the appearance of scars, fine lines, and wrinkles will be reduced and the skin will look plumped and glowy.
