The latest, most dramatic form of micro-needling for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkle, scarring, stretch marks and overall skin texture, clarity and color.
Automated Micro-Needling (also known as collagen induction therapy or CIT) is one of the latest innovations to hit the world of aesthetic medicine. The science behind the treatment and it’s success is that it follows the same philosophy as fractionated CO2 lasers. The idea is to create many many tiny punctures in the skin thus creating controlled micro injuries to the skin in order to induce the production of collagen and elastin. You may experience some mild peeling and flaking of the skin for a few days post treatment which is completely normal.
As the skin repairs itself the result is a thicker dermis hence softening lines, wrinkles and reducing/correcting the appearance of scars and imperfections. A general renewal and creation of new skin cells is accomplished by the tiny micro injuries.
The added benefit of these micro-channels is that they allow topical creams and serums to be absorbed more effectively thus enhancing their effects in the deeper layers of the skin.
The overall benefits include wrinkle reduction, texture, tone and younger looking skin with fewer signs of aging. The Micropen also works on pigmentation issues whether it be hyper or hypo pigmentation, acne scars, as well as traumatic scars and stretch marks. The Micropen is safe to use on all areas of the face and body.
A sterile needle-tip is attached to the pen and is for one individual use only therefore eliminating any chance whatsoever of cross contamination. Your skincare specialist will apply a thin layer of gel so that the pen glides smoothly over your skin. There is little discomfort due to a topical numbing cream applied pre-procedure. The pen is moved across the skin in even strokes and then the process is repeated in additional directions to achieve an even, uniform needling of the entire area. The sensation is somewhat like the feel of moving sandpaper across the skin or a slight pinching feel on areas with thinner more sensitive skin.
Following the procedure, creams and serums appropriate for your skin type and condition are applied so that the full benefit of these newly created pathways is maximized. The entire procedure from cleansing to finishing products takes approximately 30 minutes.
There is no downtime to this procedure other than the skin having anywhere from mild redness to bright red much like a sunburn. The skin may have a nice tautness or tingly feeling but it is not unpleasant or uncomfortable and all regular activity can be resumed. Regular makeup and skincare can be resumed the next day. You will notice an immediate improvement in the skin but the results and improvements will continue for 6 months as the skin rebuilds collagen and elastin.
It is suggested that you have 2-3 treatments spaced a few weeks apart for normal anti-aging benefits and 6-8 sessions to begin resolving/improving more advanced or severe conditions.
This treatment is the perfect addition to your normal regimen of peels and skincare and truly yields some of the most impressive results to hit the aesthetic medical arena in years
