What is Micro-Needling and How Does It Work?
Micro-Needling is a minimally invasive cosmetic dermatological procedure based on the use of tiny needles to create micro-channels (tiny holes) in the skin. The process stimulates your skin’s natural ability to heal itself and in the process produces collagen and elastin. These superficial micro-channels also allow topical gels, creams and serums to be absorbed more effectively into the skin. The process is called Collagen Induction Therapy, which stimulates helps fill fine lines, improve acne scars, smooth out large pores, and brighten the skin. The result is a fresher-looking you with plumper, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin. There are three phases in the wound healing process: Inflammation: Introducing microchannels into the skin using a medical-grade microneedling device stimulates your immune system to increase blood flow which removes debris and cleans up the deep layers of the skin. This is the first step in creating new tissue. Proliferation: As the ‘wound’ is repaired, granulation cells contribute to the growth of the extracellular matrix and new vascular structures. This is the structural base for new tissue growth. Remodeling: the final step in the rejuvenation process is the creation of new dermal tissue and vascular supply leading to skin rejuvenation.

What to Expect?
Rare side effects may include scarring and infection can occur. The risk of infection is low, but you want to make sure you keep the treatment area clean after your procedure. You'll be provided with written instructions to make this as simple as possible. Expect some post-procedure redness, which usually subsides within 24 hours. It’s also normal to have minor tenderness to the touch after each treatment. You may also experience a feeling of tightness in the first day or two after your treatment. Other side effects may include bruising and scabbing post-procedure due to possible pinpoint bleeding during your procedure. Your skin should feel and look normal within 24 hours and largely be healed after three days.
What is StemFacial® ? Why Do I need It?
Developed by physician-scientists at EmageMedical solutions contain a distinctive formulation of stem cell cytokines and growth factors developed from female human bone marrow stem cell cultures. The StemFacial® Matrix solution is used during the micro needling treatment and contains Mesenchymal stem cell cytokines and growth factors, hyaluronic acid and seven peptides in a liquid format. The biologics are anti-inflammatory and not allergenic. In STEMFACIAL® the concentration of the important bio signals produced by the cells is maximized. The stem cell bio signals are only the beginning of what sets STEMFACIAL® apart from other skin rejuvenation products. THE 33 ACTIVES INCLUDE:
