Micro needling is a process of rolling many fine needles over the surface of the skin, creating tiny controlled puncture wounds.
These controlled punctures stimulate your body’s natural healing process, triggering the release of cytokines and growth factors that lead to remodeling of collagen and elastin, which produces a natural skin tightening effect. It’s this damage that activates the healing process which ultimately turns back the hands of time.
As our cells migrate to heal the affected treated area, these inflammatory responses also trigger the skin cells to clean and remove bacteria, debris and impurities from the area to stimulate new skin growth.
After micro needling treatments, patients may feel symptoms similar to moderate sunburn. Proper aftercare is mandatory post treatment such as avoiding sun, heat and friction.in order to achieve beneficial results.
Days after the treatment, the skin will naturally tighten as new collagen is laid down and new skin tissue forms. The healing, inflammation and collagen formation process must take place before the benefits of micro needling becomes evident. New collagen peaks at 14 days after treatment. The micro needling treatment is similar to laser treatments, but without the severe side effects or long recovery time.
Micro-needling is an effective way to naturally renew the appearance and texture of your skin and requires at least 3 and 6 treatments 4 to 6 weeks apart.
