Looking for a way to improve your wrinkles and fine lines without any downtime?Micro-needling is a quick and virtually painless procedure that will give you smoother, firmer, and younger-looking skin.
Micro-needling(also known as collagen induction therapy) induces collagen production and actually strengthens the epidermis. The expert technician uses a wand that contains very fine needles. When passed over the skin, the needles create micro “injuries” in the skin to trigger new collagen synthesis. Each micro “injury” creates a channel that triggers the body to produce new collagen and elastin to fill the microscopic wound. This procedure has no major side effects and beautiful results are noticeable in a short period of time.
The major benefits of Micro-needling include:
Reduces Wrinkles and Fine Lines
The loss of elastin and collagen causes thinning, sagging skin, and facial wrinkles. Micro-needling stimulates the production of natural elastin and collagen that reduces wrinkles and fine lines. You’ll have younger-looking skin with no downtime. Your pocketbook will like it too–this procedure is much less expensive than laser and light treatments.
Micro-needling is proven to diminish the look of surgery and acne scars. This procedure breaks down old tissue and triggers the production of new elastin and collagen for healthier skin.
Reduces Appearance of Stretch Marks
Stretch marks are extremely difficult to treat and very few cosmetic treatments can improve their appearance. Micro-needling, however, has been shown to improve the appearance of stretch marks, especially when combined with other treatments such as Fraxel, other laser treatments, and PRP.
Prevents Signs of Aging
Micro-needling effectively and powerfully stops the early signs of aging as well as preventing new wrinkles and fine lines from occurring. When combined with consistent use of corrective antioxidant serums, this procedure aids in brightening your skin that results in a youthful glow. You can’t get that from home treatments or other cosmetic products!
How Micro-needling improves your skin
- Improve skin tone and texture
- Treat moderate pitted acne scarring
- Stimulate collagen
- Reduce pore size
- Minimize the appearance of surgical scars
Micro-needling is the science of creating tiny micro-channels into the skin, which immediately stimulates the production of new, healthy collagen. This results in an overall improvement in your skin’s health. A series of 4-6 treatments is recommended
What to expect during your Micro-Needling Treatment
After your personal skincare assessment with your BodyLase® professional, your skin is thoroughly cleansed and prepped for the treatment. A topical numbing agent is applied evenly over the area to be treated. You will relax peacefully for 30 to 45minutes while the numbing agent takes effect. Next, the numbing agent is removed and the Micro-Needling wand is gently passed evenly across the skin. Proper aftercare products are applied to the treated areas and at-home instructions are reviewed.
What to expect AFTER your Micro-Needling Treatment
After your treatment, your skin will be slightly pink and puffy for up to 24 hours. You may also experience some tightness, or tenderness to the treated area the following day. Approximately, 2-3 days after the treatment, you may have some light flaking or dry areas. You will start to see an improvement in your skin’s health as soon as one week after your treatment.
