What is microneedling?

Microneedling is used to treat and improve conditions like acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, skin texture, pore size, brown spots, stretch marks, and pigment issues. It's also called skin needling, collagen induction therapy (CIT), and transdermal collagen induction (PCI). With combined treatment, microneedling can even help treat hair loss!

 

How Does Microneedling Work?

Microneedling Therapy also called Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), and Percutaneous (through the skin) Collagen Induction (PCI), is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of the MD Needle Pen.

The mechanical action of the pen allows the needles to puncture the skin and create a controlled injury at a specific depth. Each puncture creates a channel that triggers the bodies natural healing process to fill these micro wounds by producing new collagen and elastin in the papillary dermis. In addition, new capillaries are formed for improved blood supply. The minimal side effects can include some redness or slight irritation/swelling which will reduce naturally within the first two days after treatment.


With Microneedling, the top layer of the skin is parted without being damaged, leaving the skin intact.  It does not “burn” your skin like peels or more invasive lasers. The needle penetration depth can be adjusted from 0.25mm to 2.50mm into the skin depending on the area of the body and the skin condition being treated. Using skin needling consistently will trigger the bodies repair process until the desired level of skin rejuvenation is achieved.

Microneedling results in the production of new collagen and elastin, improvement in skin tone and texture, firmness as well as reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks. 

 

Microneedling Combination Procedures

Microneedling can be used in combination with Hyaluronic Acid and other serums to hydrate and heal the skin. The micro-channels created by the needles allow for deeper penetrations of the topical serums for more effective results. This procedure can increase the skin’s ability to utilize the nutrients by upt to 3,000%! 

Combine microneedling with the body's own PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and kick start the healing process. The rejuvenation action that is started by the micro-wounds is dramatically enhanced by the growth factors contained in the PRP. Studies have shown skin rejuvenation with PRP combination procedure.

Microneedling with PRP combination treatment is great for hair loss problems. Men can also increase benefits by applying minoxidil solution (please see your board certified dermatologist or doctor for minoxidil solution as our board-certified aestheticians do not provide it)

What can microneedling treat?

As the device slides along the skin, it penetrates the upper layers of the skin (epidermis and superficial dermis) to a depth of up to 2.5mm to create tiny needle wounds. The body recognizes these wounds and responds by delivering cells that help produce new collagen and elastin fibers. We then see more youthful skin with a reduction in wrinkles and scars.

Micro-needling can be used to treat a variety of different skin conditions, including:

  • Scars caused by acne, previous surgeries and burns
  • Stretch marks
  • Pore Size
  • Overall texture, tone, and color
  • Sagging skin / Skin laxity
  • Hyperpigmentation and Hypopigmentation
  • Fine lines and deep wrinkles
  • Photo aging and sun damage
  • Hair Loss

Treatments with a micro needle pen do not burn the skin (like laser), dissolve (like chemical peels), or abrade and scrape (like dermabrasions). Microneedling treatment with the MD Needle Pen gently stimulates the skin with very fine needles that encourage natural collagen production. When combined with our Biopelle Growth Factor Serum (based on stem cells), the body’s own healing properties become highly accelerated. Clients looking to treat hair loss can inquire our estheticians about promoting hair growth with right combination treatment.
