BENEFITS OF SKIN NEEDLING
(procedure to increase collagen production in the skin, improving tone and elasticity)
- diminish or reduce the appearance of lines and / or wrinkles (“anti-aging”)
- non-surgical skin-tightening
- treat scars (e.g. caused by acne, surgery, burns, mole removals, etc.)
- improve the appearance of stretch-marks
Micro-needling works by treating not only superficial layers, but also deeper layers of the skin without damaging or removing any upper layers. The body responds to this treatment by the production of elastin and collagen fibers, as well as new capillaries (blood vessels) to improve blood circulation, which leads to a healthier plumping of the skin, and better overall appearance. Any part of the body covered by skin can be treated, not just the face and neck.
Each treatment session takes about 1 hour (maybe 90 minutes.). This is a very detailed session, specifically targeting your unique problem areas. At the end of an initial full-face session, you will also receive special skin treatment products worth $125.- (not included in non-face micro-needling procedures, but available for purchase)
Most patients want to see immediate results when they undergo a skin rejuvenation treatment. Nevertheless, a sustainable result needs time. After about three treatments (one per month) the best possible results are obtained – skin texture is improved, wrinkles are evened out and facial expression lines are diminished. Treatments should be no less than 4 weeks apart. (sometimes, I may recommend 6-8 weeks, depending on the case).
By mechanically breaking down existing scars, a natural wound healing process is junp-started. This leads to a softening and visible changes of the scar structure.
