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 are the Benefits of Micro-Needling?

Benefits of micro needling are broad, lasting, and can address:

  • Acne and deep scars
  • Alopecia and Rosacea
  • Fine lines, un-even skin texture
  • Large pores
  • Minor skin laxity
  • Stretch marks and Sun damage
  • Dark spots or skin discoloration (hyperpigmentation) Microneedling is safe on all skin types. This makes it an excellent option for patients with darker skin tones for whom laser and other treatments may not be safe. Each microneedling session takes about 30-60 minutes, depending on the size and location of the area being treated. Most people require three to six treatments for optimal results. Treatments are generally scheduled four to six weeks apart. While superficial results are quicker to come, it may take many weeks to realize the full results of treatment.​

    Am I a Good Candidate?

    Ideal Body has partnered with leader in the cosmetics and skin tech industry Emage Medical, which proudly manufactures in USA its state-of-the art, micro-needling device CytoPen featuring 12-needle tip made of surgical grade stainless steel, with adjustable penetration depth of 0mm to 0.3mm. It utilizes disposable, sterile cartridges the electrical and mechanical components of the device are fully sealed, assuring patients are protected from cross-contamination. Microneedling is safe for healthy adults, but keep in mind, the procedure requires your skin to be broken in order to initiate the regeneration process. It may take up to several days for your skin to fully heal making the procedure better suited for people who do not have trouble healing.  If you have a chronic skin or health condition, you should discuss it with your doctor. Microneedling IS NOT recommended for patients with a history of keloid scars, scleroderma, collagen vascular disease, fungal infections, or a history of eczema and psoriasis. It's also not recommended for patients who are immunosuppressed, pregnant, or nursing.

    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.
