Did you know that a micro-needle treatment is as beneficial as a deep chemical peel, without the downtime and is almost painless? This is my absolute favorite treatment! Here is what happens at the appointment:
Skin is cleansed with antiseptic.
Topical numbing cream is applied and allowed to set for 15 minutes.
Procedure is explained.
New sterile multi-needle tip is placed on hand held micro needle device.
Skin is tested for numbness.
Comfort is verified.
Needles are vibrating when device is on and you will hear it humming.
Hyaluronic Acid is applied to skin liberally.
Nurse Jacqui moves the micro-needle around in a circular motion without pressure. Needles are creating tiny channels/micro-injuries to the skin and there is some bleeding.
This is done to whichever area of the body you have chosen. You are invited to check it out with a mirror, take selfies, or Snap Chat about it.
Afterward, skin is again cleansed with antiseptic, additional hyaluronic acid and whatever specific products needed are applied. Post care procedures are minimal and you will resume regular activities the following day.
Benefits of this are:
Visibly reduces pore size, fine lines, wrinkles and scars.
Body's own repair mechanism initiates collagen production all over treated area.
Skin appears to glow and look more youthful after just one treatment.
Reduces acne scarring and stretchmarks.
Treatment also clears up acne breakouts in some patients.
Recommendation is 3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. 6 for scar treatments. Recovery is 1-2 days and well worth it. Nurse Jacqui rates this as a Top Beaty Priority.
