MicroNeedling

Microneedling works by encouraging your skin to make more collagen. The idea is that pinpricks from the procedure cause slight injury to the skin and that the skin responds by making new collagen-rich tissue.

This new skin tissue is, in turn, more even in tone and texture. It’s normal for the skin to lose collagen via age or injury. By encouraging the skin to make new tissue, there may be more collagen to help make the skin firmer, too.

What is microneedling?

Microneedling works by encouraging your skin to make more collagen. The idea is that pinpricks from the procedure cause slight injury to the skin and that the skin responds by making new collagen-rich tissue.

Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that’s used to treat skin concerns via collagen production. Also known as collagen induction therapy, this treatment may help those looking to reduce the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks. It’s also used in certain anti-aging procedures, such as eyelid surgery and sun spots. Microneedling isn’t effective for hair loss, despite the possible role of collagen in hair growth. You may be an ideal candidate for this procedure if you’re in good health and have certain skin concerns that haven’t responded to home treatments or other types of dermatologic procedures, such as peels. This may also be a final step before considering cosmetic surgery for anti-aging and other concerns.

Contraindications

The skin micro-needling treatment cannot be applied in some cases. All these cases have been listed below:

  • History of allergies

  • Immunosuppression

  • Diabetes

  • Pustular or nodular rosacea

  • Concurrent use of anticoagulant medication

  • Unnecessarily frequent needling sessions

  • Injectable neuromodulators

  • Injectable fillers

  • Pregnancy

  • Presence of palmar or plantar keloid scarring

  • Moles, Skin Tags and Various Lesions.

Treatment preparation

It is not necessary to prepare the skin in a particular way prior to the treatment. The skin should be clean, without pathological exanthemas. The treatment has to be preceded with the consultation.  

 

Owing to a unique cooling system, discomfort throughout the treatment is inconsiderable and there is no need of anesthesia. A treatment may be followed by a short-term (up to 2 days) slight redness and edema. If intensive, it is not needed to reduce the patient’s activities. 

After-treatment procedures

After the treatment we recommend:

  • not to expose the skin to the sun (or solarium) for minimum one month following the treatment

  • to protect the skin with high SPF, because the UV radiation may cause discolorations

  • not to apply irritating or drying agents onto the skin for a few days after the treatment

  • to use the wound healing cream

  • to avoid overheating of the treated skin (e.g. sauna, hot baths) and irrelevant physical effort that rise up blood pressure (workouts) as well as situations involving skin injuries.

  • the thread veins have to be properly cared on a day-to-day basis.

  • to apply appropriate beauty products/cosmetics fitting the spider veins, that assist in shrinking and strengthening of the capillaries.

  • deficiencies of B2, PP and C Vitamins need to be supplemented.

  • to protect the skin from cold and moisture through applying protective creams in the fall and winter time.
