Skin Micro Needling is safer and more effective in piercing the skin than traditional skin needling rollers. The treatment has a superior effect on collagen and elastin rejuvenation using a multi-speed and adjustable needle depth offering unparalleled collagen induction by harnessing the body’s innate ability to re-grow and repair the skin as a response to micro-damage. This small, hand-held device delivers up to 1,300 micro punctures per second into the skin, thus stimulating the production of collagen and elastin and normalizing various skin functions.
Q: How many treatments are recommended for rejuvenation, acne scarring and stretch marks? (General guide)
A: Rejuvenation: 4-6 treatments, 4 weeks apart, Acne scarring: 6 treatments, 6 weeks apart, Stretch marks: 4-8 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart
Q: Should I prepare my skin before having a Skin Needling Treatment?
A: For optimal results, a period of effective active treatment creams, such as Vitamin A and Vitamin C is recommended to allow the skin’s strength to build-up (especially for thin or delicate skin areas). Consult your therapist about the recommended Pre- and Post- procedure protocol.
Q: How long should it take before I see results?
A: Typically, you will see results after the first treatment. Lasting and more significant results will occur after 4 to 6 treatments (spaced 4-6 weeks apart). Your skin will continue to improve over the next 6-12 months after a course of treatments and when combined with the recommended post treatment care.
Q: Is the treatment painful?
A: For minimum needle depths Skin Needling Treatments are painless. Treatments over 0.5mm deep, may require a topical anesthetic cream to be applied for 15-40 minutes before the procedure. This will render the treatments virtually pain free.
Q: Is there any downtime after treatments?
A: Generally no, but you may experience facial redness for 12-48 hours after the treatment. Most people are able to return to normal daily activities immediately after the treatment.
Q: How soon after filler injections can I have a Skin Needling Treatment?
A: It is recommended to wait at least 7 days after filler injections, so that any post treatment bruising from the fillers can settle. It is also possible to have your Skin Needling Treatment several days before having fillers injected. Consult with your practitioner prior to determine exactly how long a wait is best in each particular case.
