Micro-needling is an effective way to kickstart the skin rejuvenation process. This procedure stimulates the body to produce healthier skin cells while at the same time increasing the amount of collagen in the skin and subdermal layers. The result is smoother skin with less wrinkling. The skin also becomes more elastic and taut, with fewer visual signs of aging such as acne scars, age spots and hyperpigmentation.
The Science Behind Micro-Needling
Here at Simply.Aesthetics, we offer micro-needling through the use of the SKINPEN by Bellus Medical. This specialized device creates microchannels that generate the creation of new skin tissue as well as collagen. This plumps the skin and eliminates skin imperfections as the healing process produces new tissue to replace the damaged tissue.
When a multitude of these microchannels are created, an entire surface region of the skin can be rejuvenated. This is how micro-needling works. By creating these microchannels, the skin actually becomes healthier.
The Micro-Needling Procedure
Our medical team will consult with the client and take a close look at the areas of concern during their consultation. Whether the problem is wrinkling and fine lines, age spots, scars or hyperpigmentation, we can use the SKINPEN to help combat these problems.
If you are a good candidate for treatment, we will use the needling instrument to create the microchannels within your skin. Treatment typically takes around 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. After treatment, your skin may be slightly red, but this should dissipate on its own in a day or so. The results can be seen within a few days and will continue to improve over the course of 6 months. For the best results, typically patients will undergo 2 or 3 sessions spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart. After several treatments, the client will notice an improvement in skin tone because of the increase in collagen and elastin. Old, damaged skin is slowly discarded.
