WHAT IS SKIN NEEDLING
Skin Needling is a procedure that uses a bunch of tiny needles to puncture the very first layer of skin. This process works to rejuvenate your skin by boosting collagen production, which in turn reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and elevates the overall texture of your skin.
We can select the exact depth best for your skin type and condition and use robotic precision delivery to go as deep as 3 millimeters at 0.1-millimeter increments—no other device can. We incorporate LED Light with our skin needling treatments:
BLUE light is helpful for those who suffer from acne, as the light and heat target bacteria that cause breakouts and
RED light increases cell production and restores cell function.
BENEFITS OF SKIN NEEDLING
HOW TO PREPARE FOR SKIN NEEDLING
If you're using any intense topical treatments (such as those containing Retinol), stop using a few days before your treatment and 3 days post treatment!
Avoid direct sun exposure for about three days prior and three days following and ensure you wear your sunscreen!
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING THE TREATMENT
THE NUMBER 1 QUESTION: Does it hurt?
In short, it is a little uncomfortable but NO it doesnt hurt.
After a deep cleanse, and thorough exfoliation we activate your skin cells under the LED Light, then a DERMAPEN full of micro needles continuously puncture your skin causing thousands of micro punctures causing deliberate micro trauma to the skin which will trigger the skins repair response which is.... COLLAGEN BUILDING!
Your forehead, hairline, and jawline will feel more sensitive than other areas. You will barely felt the needles pass over your cheeks, which is the deepest level of depth.
After the needling, the procedure is followed with a soothing serum and hyaluronic face mask that will feel like heaven.
Whats the downtime?
The great thing about this treatment is there's really no significant downtime. Immediately after your skin will appear slightly red - like mild sun burn but really, it's a no-downtime kind of treatment, so most people leave here a little bit red. A couple of hours later, you're pretty much back to normal, and the next day, you can resume your normal skincare (excluding actives) and normal activities.
Your topical products will penetrate even deeper after needling so, active ingredients will be working there magic at a deeper level. You will see major changes in the appearance of your skin tone and texture!
