Anti-Aging Care with Microneedling:

What is Microneedling?

 

This technique causes a regenerating reaction by puncturing the skin with micro-needles. Dermis of the face and neck areas gets stimulated. Fine lines around the eyes and lips are regenerated, as well as forehead and neck wrinkles. 

 

How does the procedure go?

 

A revitalizing vitamin or hyaluronic acid cocktail is applied on the face or neck. The technician punctures the skin with the microneedling pen, allowing the products to easily penetrate it. Depth and intensity are adjusted depending on the treated area. The treatment, unpleasant, lasts somewhere between 20 and 30 minutes (face + neck). Protocole : three sessions, 15 days between each treatment, one last session a month later.

 

Once all contraindications have been ruled out (pregnancy, anticoagulants or anti-inflammatory drugs, autoimmune diseases, skin rashes, acne, herpes, etc.), the technician explains the precautions to be taken after the session (no makeup, pool, sauna or hammam for the next 24 hours, no sun exposure for the net week). On D-Day, the skin is cleaned and disinfected. 

 

Is it dangerous?

 

 

No, because only single-use material is used. Since a breach is practiced on the skin surface, aseptic conditions are essential.

 

 

Consequences?

 

Skin redness. Generally goes back to normal within 24 to 48 hours, sometimes 4 or 5 days later if a high intensity was chosen. A priori, there is no risk of burns or depigmentation. Microneedling is possible on tanned or dark typed skin. What’s the biggest risk? Disappointment or too subtle results.

 

 

What results can be expected?

 

A visible but discreet improvement of the skin’s glow, texture and density on treated areas, less wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes and lips. Microneedling is suggested to those whose skin has started to lose elasticity and density. Generally, results can be observed after the second or third session since it is directly linked to the scaring process.
