MICRONEEDLING

Allows for controlled induction of the skin's self-repair mechanism by creating micro-"injuries" in the skin, which triggers new collagen synthesis, yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring. The result is smoother, firmer, and younger-looking skin. Micro-needling procedures are performed in a safe and precise manner with the use of the sterile, disposable needle head. Patients are numbed topically prior to the procedure to allow for a comfortable treatment. 

ABOUT MICRONEEDLING

Helps reduce the signs of aging, improve the appearance of acne scars and rejuvenate aging skin:  In one study of 60 patients with acne scarring, three micro- treatments resulted in a 31 percent improvement in skin texture, with no discoloration of the skin. Micro-treatments was effective for all skin types.
 

  • Is appropriate for all skin types: The professional micro-treatments create hundreds of tiny micro-channels in the skin with minimal damage to the epidermis. The process disrupts the junctions between the skin cells, temporarily disrupting the skin’s barrier function. This brief, mechanical disruption does not cause the melanocytes (pigment-producing cells) in the epidermis to react by increasing pigment production and darkening the skin in a process called hyperpigmentation. Therefore, the process can be used on all skin types, including darker skin that is more susceptible to hyperpigmentation.
     

  • Can be used on many body parts: The professional micro-treatments device needle depth adjusts from .25 mm up to 2 mm, allowing the provider to tailor the treatments to the patient’s particular skin thickness as well as his or her needs. 
     

  • Has minimal risk of infections or scarring: Professional mico-treatments doesn’t remove or damage the epidermis and doesn’t trigger the inflammatory pathway, meaning infections and scarring are unlikely.
     

  • Works in conjunction with ALASTIN Skin Care Products: ALASTIN is an easy-to-use skincare regimen specifically formulated to provide the nutrients your skin needs to optimize the results of the professional microdermabrasion procedure.

Does it hurt?

 
A topical anesthetic is typically applied prior to the procedure. This allows for a comfortable experience for most people. Generally, patients report feeling just the slight vibration of the micro needling tool during the procedure. In one study of micro-needling used to treat acne scars, the patients’ average pain rating was only 1.08 out of 10. For most people, that’s probably less painful than having your eyebrows waxed.
