If the skin on your face is not as smooth as you’d like it to be, micro needle therapy is a cosmetic procedure that could help. It is a less invasive alternative to surgery or laser facial treatments.
Micro needle treatment uses tiny needles to stimulate your body’s natural collagen production. This is a safe and effective procedure that can be accomplished with multiple sessions over four to six months.
What Is Micro Needle Facial Treatment?
Micro needling therapy is a minimally invasive procedure designed to smooth acne scars, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and fade stretch marks. The treatment, also known as collagen induction therapy, uses tiny needles to prick your skin tissue, prompting healing collagen and elastin creation.
Who Benefits from Microneedling?
Clients should consider micro needling treatment for acne scars and conditions that result in uneven skin texture or appearance. Needle skin therapy can be used to:
- Tighten and lift skin
- Lessen skin discoloration
- Diminish acne scarring
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Shrink pores
- Fade stretch marks
- Minimize sun damage
What Is Rejuvapen®?
The Rejuvapen® device is a sleek, handheld medical-grade implement with multiple tiny needles. This pen-like tool is used in your microneedling procedure to perforate the epidermis and top layer of the dermis, making holes invisible to the naked eye.
How Does Microneedling Therapy and Treatment Work?
How can micro needling therapy pinpricks combat severe skin concerns, including scars, wrinkles, and stretch marks?
This skin rejuvenation is part of your body’s natural response anytime you have a wound. When your skin senses it’s been injured, it rushes collagen and elastin proteins into the area to regenerate and renew your skin. The proteins form new networks in the skin to fortify and close the gaps.
Is Microneedling Safe and Effective?
Micro needle therapy is a routine procedure proven safe and effective.
A study in the Journal of Cutaneous and Aesthetic Surgery discovered that 80% of microneedling participants said that reducing their facial scars was “excellent” following two months of treatment; the participants did not mention any adverse side effects.
In addition, Lutronic did a study of about 500 participants and determined that “the results obtained after the final treatment session continued to improve over time, and patient satisfaction with the procedure was very high with excellent compliance.”
When Can I See Results?
Your skin might appear healthier immediately after your Rejuvapen® treatment, but the complete microneedling process takes some time to complete. The damage to your skin took years to create, so it makes sense that it will take a while for your skin to repair itself.
Glow Aesthetic Center offers a set of four to six sessions, depending on your skin’s individual needs. Your skin will repair itself over a period of several weeks. For some people, the final results of micro needle therapy are not visible for three to six months.
What Benefits Can I Expect to See?
Micro needle therapy can have many benefits: new collagen production may lessen fine lines and wrinkles, wipe out your skin’s sun damage, and clear away acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and stretch marks.
You can see your skin look healthier than it has in years with Rejuvapen®.
What Is the Downtime?
Following your micro needle treatment, your skin may feel warm and a little tight. Your total healing time may vary, depending on how severe your skin’s damage was and how deep the Rejuvapen® repair went.
Most individuals have a slight red or pink sunburn-like tinge to their skin for two to four days, but some clients heal totally in one day. Your clinician can recommend a balm or serum to lessen your discomfort after your treatment.
How Much Does Micro Needle Therapy Cost?
Microneedling is a non-invasive treatment that results in minimal downtime and no need for anesthetic or hospitalization. Therefore, your overall out-of-pocket costs will be substantially less than a more intensive surgical procedure.
As an elective, cosmetic treatment, micro needle therapy is not covered by insurance. The cost you will need to pay will vary depending on how many treatments you need and the size of the area of skin that needs improvement.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
After an initial consultation, your clinician will determine how many treatments you will need. This decision is based on your micro needle treatment goals and your skin’s current health. Clients most often require six treatments, with about one month of healing time between each.
We may recommend up to eight micro-needle therapy sessions four to six weeks apart for clients with deep wrinkles or severe acne scars, stretch marks, or sun damage. Maintaining that glow over the long term may require future visits, so a plan can be made for that.
