Micro-Needling

Microneedling is one of the best long term skin rejuvenation treatments today for younger looking skin!  It incorporates a series of treatments with marked improvement along the way that is natural and effective. 

This treatment is a minimally invasive method to stimulate new skin cells by using microneedles.  The skin reacts to the micro puncture by starting  a wound healing cascade.  Stem cells in the lowest epidermal layer are stimulated to proliferate.  New cell formations are formed and the skin becomes thicker.  New anchor collagens re-connect epidermis and dermis.  The production of hyaluronic acid is increased and fine wrinkles are smoothed.  The supply of oxygen is improved and the skin is rejuvenated.

The high speed of the microneedling pen and precision needles reduces the inflammation of the skin to an absolute minimum, the most important factor for successful microneedling.   This is especially important for clients with rosacea to keep inflammation to a minimum.   You just feel a light prickling sensation and the treatment can be done without numbing cream.

Microneedling is an effective alternative to Botox and invasive lasers treatments.   There is a shift in having the “frozen face” to more natural alternative treatments like microneedling.  Since Botox only lasts about 3 months, this is a natural alternative to injecting a deadly neurotoxin into your face.  You can achieve natural long term results without the risks and side effects of laser resurfacing treatments.  For acne scars, this is one of the best solutions giving amazing results without destroying the skin surface.  Collagen produced from this treatment makes your skin tighter and firmer.  Microneedling is the perfect fix for furrow lines that don't disappear with Botox.

LED Treatment after Microneedling

Exposure to Near Infra-Red Light after microneedling triggers the skins anti-inflammatory processes to accelerate repair, reduce irritation and redness.  This treatment targets cells involved in amplifying collagen and elastin formation, providing deeper stimulation and greater skin volume.  Biologists have found that cells exposed to this light grow 150 – 200 per cent faster than cells not exposed to this light.  This treatment stimulates deeper levels of activity for increased toning, firming and oxygenation.

Contraindications and pre/post procedure products will be discussed at the consultation.   Consultations and treatments are done by the same medical aesthetician. 

Combination treatments with Facial Treatments / LED are recommended after a series of Microneedling treatments.

I have been Microneedling with different rollers and pens since 2015.  Microneedling, skin care and other non-invasive treatments have greatly improved the health of my own skin without having to use any injectables.

 

Most recently Courteney Cox, 52, told Bear Grylls, 

"Sometimes you find yourself trying, and then you look at a picture of yourself and you go, 'Oh god, I look horrible,'" she continued. "I have done things that I regret, and luckily there are things that dissolve and go away. So that's good because it's not always been my best look."
