SQT Bio-Microneedling Facial

A revolutionary, non-invasive skin resurfacing and rejuvenation treatment using microscopic micro-needles that are extracted from Sponge Spicules (grown in freshwater lakes), that are massaged into the skin, creating 3,000,000 microchannels to trigger a dermis wound healing thus stimulating the body to regenerate collagen and elastin.

SQT Bio-Microneedling Facial

Sponge spicules, derived from freshwater sponges, are a type of siliceous biomicro-needles. These microneedles have the ability to stimulate the skin's dermis and initiate microcirculation on the skin surface. They have a dual function of delivering active ingredients to the dermis layer and activating the basal skin cells. Visible to the naked eye, sponge spicules appear as a powder, but under a microscope, they exhibit a sharp rod-like crystal structure. Through manual massage, these natural siliceous microneedles can be directly introduced into the dermis layer, with no bleeding, need for anesthesia, or skin damage, in just 5 minutes. By undergoing SQT Bio Microneedling, the skin's cycle is shortened from 28 days to 7 days, resulting in a natural, safe, and effective physical rejuvenation process.

How Does SQT Treatment Work?

In just 5 Minutes, 3 -5 million natural siliceous microneedles are directly introduced into the dermis layer of the skin through hand massage to promote skin metabolism and stimulate collagen regeneration. There is no bleeding, no anaesthesia, and no skin breakage. The treatment shortens the skin cycle from 28 days to 7 days by activation of the basal skin cells, and achieves natural, safe, and effective physical rejuvenation. Spongilla spicules are an effective modality of skin resurfacing and provide a natural alternative approach to microdermabrasion and dermabrasion, chemical peels (glycolic acid, Jessner’s, phenol and trichloroacetic acid peels), CO laser resurfacing and Erbium laser peels to correct visual facial defects such as hyperpigmentation of various etiology, fine wrinkles, Sun damage, Superficial Scars, comedones, enlarged pores, and facial rejuvenation. Upon massaging Spongilla spicules into the skin, the spicules mechanically separate the epidermal layers and reduce keratinocyte cohesion, thereby increasing stratum corneum sloughing and sebum plug and loose keratinocyte removal.

What Is The Downtime?

Flaking or peeling can be expected on day 3-5 depending on the aesthetician’s level of penetration and the clients current skin condition. Not everyone will peel from treatment, and this does not mean it is not working, rather that the area is regenerating at a faster rate. Spongilla spicules will not be absorbed but they can last in the skin for up to 48~72 hours. After 48 -72 hours they will be discharged with the stratum corneum that has fallen off. Compared with a traditional metal microneedle, the procedure is much easier and the risk of infection is greatly reduced. Compared with chemical peeling and herbal peeling, SQT spongilla spicules therapy has NO SIDE EFFECTS, is suitable for all skin types and colors, since the ingredients are all natural and don't damage the skin.

How Many Sessions Are Required? How Painful Is It?

A course of 4 sessions is recommended every 2 weeks for long term and effective results on the face. For body parts and dependant on the conditon, a course of 6 – 8 sessions may be required. As we still age and are prone to environmental aggressors daily, Maintenance sessions are required every 8-12 weeks for long term results and educational advice on homecare is vital. The SQT treatment will feel like an exfoliation scrub which gets more intense throughout the treatment, the needling part of the treatment lasts only 5-10 minutes. Anesthetic is not required, and the treatment is more of a sensation rather than a pain. We do not advise SQT treatments to be combined with any other treatments apart from LED Photo rejuvenation.
