There is no doubt after careful research that microneedling is the best facial for any kind of situation and we are offering it to you in our clinic in Montreal and also available to our Laval customers.
Micro needling is a very safe and effective alternative to injectables and invasive lasers. The results are long term and the recovery time is minimal. This cost effective, non-invasive, non-injectable skin rejuvenation treatment targets a diverse range of skin concerns. The micro needling device that uses microscopic needles between 0.25mm and 2mm.
The treatment is derived from ancient acupuncture and mesotherapy. During the procedure, the pen is gently glided over the skin while tiny punctures are created within the epidermis and dermis that encourage the skin’s own natural healing response, leading to the production of collagen and elastin.
Doing a microneedling at home is not the same as doing it with a licensed esthetician. The difference is that a licensed esthetician will guide you through all the steps needed for you to achieve your skincare goals. However, doing so at home without the proper knowledge can scar your skin, cause permanent damage and even create hyperpigmentation. We highly recommend a consultation and you can be ready before the treatment for the aftercare instructions.
Some of the conditions that medical microneedling is known to improve include: mild to moderate acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, skin texture and pore size, and stretch marks.
Most people will notice redness and mild swelling similar to slight sunburn for 24-48 hours and there may be slight pinpoint bleeding and/or bruising. Skin will be noticeably smoother and more radiant within a week or two.
It begins with cleaning and numbing the skin using a collagen-stimulating product, hyaluronic acid. A small pen with 12 tiny needles is used to create tiny wounds in the skin. The speed and adjustability of the needles allows for more effective piercing and absorption of skin products. Hyalurnoic acid is used after the procedure to hydrate, heal and protect the skin as well.
Inflammation of the skin is very temporary and reduces greatly within a few hours. It may remain slightly pink for up to 48 hours after treatment. Using hyaluronic acid after the procedure can help reduce inflammation, and sunscreen can be used to protect the skin. Makeup use should be limited to mineral makeup.
- Patients tolerate the procedure easily. However, side effects such as dryness, scaling, redness, or swelling may last for a few days (or longer).
- It is recommended that patients protect their skin from the sun after the procedure.
- When the procedure is used to treat acne scars, it is recommended that the patient clean his/her face with a gentle cleanser every night. This should be repeated in the morning and products such as makeup should be limited but lotions can be used regularly.
- Postoperative wound infections are rare because micro wounds close quickly after the procedure is completed.
- Skin rejuvenation will be visible as soon as two weeks after the procedure.
- Results for burn scar treatments can take multiple sessions in order to be effective.
Medical microneedling is known to improve skin text texture, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, regenerate tissue, improve the appearance of scars, reduce the size of pores, and reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
Medical microneedling is safe to use on all skin types and colors without risk of post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation.
Prior to the treatment, numbing cream can be applied to minimize pain that is felt during the procedure.
Each patients skin condition determines the number of treatments that are needed. Moderate acne scars may need between three and four treatments, while thermal burns and stretch marks may need five? Conditions such as wrinkles caused by aging, one or two refresher treatments are recommended per year.
No negative side effects have been observed in the more than 150,000 microneedling procedures that have been done worldwide.
AHAs (glycolic Acid), retinol, acidic or active ingredients should not be used for two to three days after treatment to allow for maximum healing. Sun exposure is not recommended and sunscreen is encouraged.
Medical microneedling is safe on all skin types and colors because the epidermis is not damaged during treatment. The chance of change in pigmentation or post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation is minimal. Skin microneedling can be used on sensitive and fragile areas (eyes, neck, back of hands) that cannot be treated easily with other procedures.
