Treatment Available In The Gold Coast And Brisbane
As we get older natural collagen production slows down, which can lead to fine lines and wrinkles. Micro-needling also know as Skin Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy is a treatment that encourages the skin to repair itself by stimulating collagen production. This innovative procedure motivates the skin’s own natural wound healing response with small needles to reveal glowing and brighter skin that is softer and smoother.
This treatment can reduce the appearance of aged skin and boost elastin for a more youthful complexion. In addition, patients with scarring and stretch marks can have positive results with this treatment. Micro-needling can also be used to diminish the appearance of pigmentation and sun damage, as well as improve uneven skin texture.
Prior to receiving treatment, patients will attend a consultation with a professional. You will be able to discuss what the procedure involves and if this is the treatment for your skin. In addition, this is the best time to ask any questions and every effort will be made to clear up any worries or concerns.
A Professional at Esteem will also examine the area to be treated and advise how many treatment sessions of Skin Needling will be required for the desired results.
The Micro-Needling Procedure
This procedure is suitable for all skin types and tones, with the ability to treat areas such as the face, hands, arms and legs. Men and women can both benefit from this procedure. Candidates that usually choose this treatment if they are looking to minimise fine lines and wrinkles, diminish the appearance of scars and get rid of visible pigmentation.
The patient will receive a topical numbing cream on their skin before treatment, this makes sure that you are comfortable during the procedure and do not feel any pain with the treatment. The Therapist will use a pen with microscopic needles to glide over the skin. This will create tiny punctures in the epidermis that will encourage a wound healing response from the skin and stimulate collagen production. The Micro-Needling procedure can take between 40 to 60 minutes. Most patients have said that Micro-Needling does not hurt and has been described as a vibrating sensation.
Approximately 48 to 72 hours after the treatment you’ll have an increase in collagen production. It takes at least four weeks to see noticeable results though. The new collagen will last for several years, which is why micro needling treatment is considered a very long lasting treatment.
