Beauty Expert Donna Fay explains what conditions Micro-Needling can treat.
What is Micro-Needling?
Micro-Needling is something relatively new in the field of aesthetic medicine. It’s used for treating the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, and is used for the overall improvement of your skin’s appearance.
During the procedure, tiny needles are used to create a controlled reaction to the skin that allows it to naturally produce collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in an improvement of the appearance of softer wrinkles. It also creates superficial micro-channels, which can be used with topical creams, serums, and gels to help the appearance of the epidermal layer of the skin.
What can Micro-Needling treat?
Micro-Needling is used to improve the skin’s tone and texture, reduce pigmentation and improve the appearance of scars and stretch marks, generally creating a fresher overall appearance or a glow to the skin. Micro-Needling can treat the following conditions:
- Fine lines
- Acne scarring
- Trauma scarring
- Tired, dull skin
- Stretch marks
The benefits of Micro-Needling are a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. Micro-Needling also has a positive effect on hyper-pigmentation as well as on hypo-pigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars, and stretch marks.
Where can Micro-Needling be performed?
The treatment can be performed on all parts of the body: face, neck, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, and back, as well as the Décolleté, with our brand new exclusive treatment Nécolleté.
How long does a treatment take?
Treatments generally take between 15 and 30 minutes and are performed by our resident Beauty Expert, Donna Fay. For the maximum benefit, typically a series of 3-5 treatments are recommended.
