Things You Need To Know about Microneedling
You may have heard of microneedling and wondered what all the buzz is about. If you are looking for treatment to transform your skin without downtime, microneedling may be your solution.
What exactly is Microneedling?
Microneedling, also referred to as collagen induction therapy, involves using super-fine needles to create hundreds of tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of the skin. These wounds are called micro-injuries, and the micro-injuries that you create with microneedling stimulate the body’s innate wound-healing processes.
Microneedling has been proven to enhancing skin rejuvenation and is far safer for the patients with faster recovery then other traditional skin treatments. It is a chemical-free process, which is safe for all skin types and skin tones and with a very low recovery time. Besides there are no side effects since it uses natural healing ability of the body.
Is It Only For The Face?
What is amazing about this procedure that it isn’t exclusive to the face area. It is effective anywhere the skin on the body needs to be thickened. For example, those areas that have stretch marks, like the legs, chest, or butt.
Should I consider at-home Microneedling?
Microneedling has grown immensely in popularity in recent years because of the nature of the treatment and the results it gets. This has led to a rise in the number of people who want to perform the procedure in the comfort of their own home. However there are risks to microneedling at home.
What most people don’t know is that not all microneedling treatments use the same size or length of needles. You risk purchasing a dermaroller that is not designed for your skin type, or for correcting your specific imperfections. Needles used in microneedling have to pierce the skin at the correct angle, and be inserted at a specific depth. Knowing the correct needle depth to use on a given part of the face or body requires a fully-trained microneedling professional. Doing this incorrectly can cause irritation in the skin, or even scarring. Also, the safety of your microneedling treatment is closely tied to the manufacturing quality of the device being used.
Types Of Devices We Use For Microneedling?
At AskCares we only use high quality devices and machines for the correct microneedling treatments to make sure that our customers will make most out of it. It is a deliberate choice that we use InnoPen in our practice because it is an extremely reliable technology. The Innopen Micro-Needling Pen is a state of the art device designed for professional use only.
Unlike all other devices available, InnoPen is totally unique in that it deploys the worlds only sealed treatment tip. This design enables to absolutely ensure there treatment depth is delivered in a totally controlled environment. Utilising a needle entry system ensure skin is not retracted into the needle tip causing uncontrolled depth, microscopic tears and tissue damage.
Professional Techniques At AskCares
At AskCares we perform two treatments of microneedling using InnoPen:
- “Classic microneedling” also known as a Derma Stamping is the most precise, and the most flexible, microneedling procedure – it can target specific problematic skin regions very effectively, and it can be used on less accessible areas like the scalp. During this treatment, our technicians can reach the deeper level of the skin by creating vertical microperforations. These microperforations:
Stimulate the production of collagen and elastin
Improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
Reduce hyperpigmentation, age spots, and brown spots
Improve the appearance of acne and acne scars
Remove enlarged pores and blackheads
Brighten dull-looking skin complexion
Even out skin tone and texture
- InnoPen is also used in our our blockbuster treatment BB Glow with a lighter pressure and spiral type of movements. The needle punctures send your body into ‘repair mode’, forcing it to heal and rejuvenate your skin cells. The automatic vibrating function of the InnoPen microneedling pen increases the effectiveness of skin treatments by increasing absorption of products, while reducing pain and discomfort.
