Microneedling: Fight Off Wrinkles and Scars

If you’re looking for an effective way to treat your wrinkles or scars (and other things such as cellulite), the microneedling may be a great option for you!

It doesn’t last long, the recovery is fast and… it gives results!

Microneedling may seem to be a very new technique, but it’s actually almost fifty years old (changing and progressing) and has a lot of fans. [primary_practice] has highly trained professionals doing this treatment.

At the consultation session, our esthetician/doctor will tell you all the necessary things you need to do before microneedling.

The procedure

Microneedling (Collagen Induction Therapy) is a minimally invasive technique. An esthetician or a doctor first numbs the patient’s skin. The skin has to be clean and washed, without any cream, makeup or anything unnatural. He/she then uses a tool with fine needles to puncture great number of very small holes in the top layers of skin. The tool being used is called dermapen. The needles are from 0.5 mm to 2 mm wide.

The treatment should not be done if your skin is irritated in any way!

After little holes are made, comes the applying of hyaluronic acid and vitamin C – because of the microneedling, they penetrate deeper into the skin. The skin may also be treated with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or serum composed of other vitamins.

Usually, it takes 5 treatments to see the best results, both for wrinkles and scars.

What happens?

A natural healing process occurs when these little holes are made in your skin. They stimulate collagen and elastin production (the older you are, you produce it less) which reverse aging and rejuvenate the skin. The skin can bleed during the process.

The results

After the process, your skin will be healthier, softer, firmer, and the texture will be so much finer. You will glow! The skin-products that you usually use will be more effective, too.

You might experience some redness and itching, but only for a short time.

Caring for your skin afterward

After the treatment, it’s essential to take good care of your skin. Avoid direct sunlight, don’t wear makeup, don’t use products that have an active ingredient in it, avoid sweating and drink plenty of water.
