WHAT IS MICRO-NEEDLING ?
Micro-needling is a dermatological treatment in which a specialized device is used to create tiny pinpricks, or ‘micro-channels’, in the skin – this enables any skincare products subsequently applied to penetrate more deeply for enhanced results.
WHO IS MICRO-NEEDLING FOR ?
Micro-needling is for anyone with uneven skin texture or scarring (particularly from acne or breakouts), loss of firmness, fine lines or wrinkles, dull or uneven skin tone, and slackness or sagging. Especially good for sun damaged and pigmentation or this who have neglected their skin . I would ask those with rosacea or other inflammatory skin conditions to avoid this system .
WHAT RESULTS DOES MICRO NEEDLING GIVE ?
The main reason for needling at depth of .5mm and 1mm is heightened penetration of active formulations such as peptides and Hyaluronic acid. As a result of greater penetration, your actives will be more effective . Micro-needling will strengthen, plump and firm the skin; improves its tone and texture so that it’s smoother and more even; and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and scarring. The system also stimulates circulation and enhances radiance for the coveted healthy glow.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I USE THE HOME NEEDLING SYSTEM ?
Use the device once or twice a week, over a three-week period. Make sure to give the skin adequate healing time between treatments
WHEN SHOULD I USE THE HOME NEEDLING SYSTEM ?
We recommend you use the Micro-needling system in the evening, to allow for downtime overnight.
SHOULD I APPLY ANY PRODUCTS BEFORE USING ?
We recommend using the roller on clean and completely dry skin, after cleansing.
WHERE CAN I USE THE HOME NEEDLING SYSTEM ?
You can use the device on your face, neck and décolletage and hands , moving the roller vertically, horizontally and diagonally. Avoid breakouts or broken skin, as this could cause irritation. Do not needle over eye tissue (although the roller can be used on crow’s feet); just up to the cheekbone and down to the browbone. Do not use on the lips.
HOW LONG SHOULD I USE THE DEVICE FOR ?
Each treatment should last for approximately 15 -20 minutes.
MY SKIN IS RED AFTER USING THE DEVICE IS THIS NORMAL ?
Yes; the device creates ‘micro-injuries’, so your skin might be a little inflamed or tender after use, and any products you apply next could sting. Over the following days, your skin might feel dry and flake slightly. These effects are all positive, as they show that your skin’s natural defences have been triggered, which will provide a host of anti-ageing benefits. We recommend using the MESOAGE & HYALURONIC MASK DIRECTLY AFTER NEEDLING. These will heighten skins response and reduce down time.
SHOULD THE TREATMENT HURT ?
Micro-needling might cause mild discomfort, but the most you should feel is a prickling sensation. If it feels painful, discontinue use immediately and contact us
