What is Micro-Needling Therapy
Micro-Needling Therapy is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that is used to treat skin conditions by stimulating collagen production. Treatments that increase collagen synthesis can make the skin look and act younger. Medical grade skin needling is a minimal invasive cosmetic procedure that is used to treat skin concerns by generating new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer and more toned skin. The pinpricks from the procedure cause slight injury to the skin and the skin responds by making new collagen-rich tissue. By encouraging the skin to make new tissue, there may be more collagen to help make the skin firmer and more even in tone and texture.
The SkinPen Precision
We use SkinPen Precision, a technologically advanced micro-needling device that offers you optimal efficacy and performance. As we age the natural architecture of our skin deteriorates, which can lead to fine lines, wrinkles, large pores and uneven skin texture. Precise Micro-Mechanical Skin Remodeling (PMSR) is a way to address these signs of aging. PMSR is a minimally invasive procedure involving the movement of a pen-like device with an attached sterile, disposable cartridge tip containing small needles over the skin’s surface
How Micro-Needing works?
The SkinPen Precision is the first FDA-cleared micro-needling device. It causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process. There are three phases to the wound repair process
Phase 1 Inflammation
Piercing the skin triggers the immune system to disinfect wounds, remove debris and increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.
Phase 2 Proliferation
The wound is rebuilt with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.
Phase 3 Remodelling
The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.
