What is microneedling?

Microneedling is an excellent option for clients of all skin types. The facial treatment helps correct and prevent fine lines and wrinkles, improve scars from acne or other injuries, improve skin texture, reduce stretch marks, and stimulate new collagen growth. Every Dermapen tip has 12 small (micro) needles and features their patented safety technologies, SureSpace and SafLok. The Dermapen Microneedling works by creating micro injuries to the epidermis (outer layer of skin) and dermis (the inner layer of skin). As a result, the micro injuries encourage the body’s innate ability to repair itself.

Microneedling with Hyaluronic Acid (HA)

This versatile ingredient is loved the world over for its hydrating and plumping ability. When used while microneedling, hyaluronic acid can help with your dry, flaky skin as the micro-needles push hydration deep into the dermis. Hyaluronic acid–based serums are always a solid option since they hold up to 1000 times its weight in water and hydrates and plumps the skin from the inside-out. It also won’t clog your pores.

Microneedling with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

PRP is a valuable addition to microneedling because it augments the regenerative effects of the treatment. PRP is developed by concentrating the client’s blood with platelets and growth factors. PRP is created by drawing a small amount of the client’s blood, which is then spun to concentrate the platelets and transforming growth factors. The solution is then applied to the areas that have been treated with microneedling to boost the regenerative effects of the procedure, and improve the cosmetic outcome.

When is microneedling effective?

For clients with great skin, microneedling will provide that radiant glow. For clients with acne scars, large pores, brown spots, and fine lines and deep wrinkles, multiple treatments may be recommended.

Microneedling is an anti-aging treatment. Not only does it produce collagen, it improves the skin’s appearance by correcting damage and smoothing and tightening the skin. Studies show marked improvement in scar appearance

Microneedling will reverse sun damage and pigmentation problems. Microneedling is also a vehicle to help those expensive topical treatments to penetrate and be absorbed.

Collagen stimulation

Microneedling treatments stimulate collagen using our bodies’ physiological wound healing response. This process works in four phases, stimulating new healthy tissue growth:

  • Phase one: an inflammatory response is experienced 1-3 days after the treatment, stimulating new fibroblasts to develop new collagen
  • Phase two: new fibroblasts continue to grow and multiply 3-5 days after the treatment. Fibroblasts will generate new collagen and tissue formation.
  • Phase three: growth factors are released and fibroblasts release collagen 5-20 days after the treatment.
  • Phase four: the maturation stage of new, healthy skin takes place from day 28 to two years after the microneedling treatment. Tissue continues to improve and clients notice and improvement in skin tone and quality.

What is the microneedling process?2022-10-10T14:56:27-04:00

The treatment starts with the use of a topical numbing agent. Numbing your skin ensures the treatment is as comfortable as possible. Next, the technician, using a microneedling device containing a circular arrangement of tiny needles, passes the device across the skin creating tiny openings in the epidermis. These minuscule punctures prompt a healing response in the skin without damaging tissue. After finishing,  your technician will apply a soothing gel. It cools your skin and prevents it from drying out post-treatment.
