What is Micro-needling?
Micro-needling (also known as collagen induction therapy) is a minimally invasive treatment to rejuvenate the skin, restore skin elasticity, reducing fine lines & deep expression lines, improve acne scars.
How does Micro-needling work?
We use an eclectic device, CosmoPen. The device is a pen with disposable 12-pin needle-head, which allows to control the depth of penetration and speed of the needles. It’s fantastic at penetrating the upper layers of the skin to create the growth of elastin and collagen by using the body’s own natural healing.
What conditions can be treated or improved with Micro-needling?
A number of benefits, including:
– Removing fine lines & wrinkles
– Tightening skin pores & rejuvenating skin
– Improving skin tone, elasticity & skin color
– Reducing acne scars & stretch marks
– Hydrating skin & improving sun damage
Who is a good candidate for Micro-needling?
Micro-needling is safe to use on all skin types and all skin colors. There is no risk of post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation.
Who should NOT have Micro-needling?
Micro-needling is not suitable for people:
-who take contraindicated medications (steroids, hormone replacement therapy) or have contraindicated diseases (lupus, cancer, diabetes)
-with any kind of current skin infection or open wounds, cuts or abrasions on the skin
-who have a tendency to form keloids scars
-who are taking Accutane should avoid treatment until at least six month after they stop using the medication

How many treatments might I need and how fast will I see results?
The amount of treatments depend on how each individual responds to the treatments. On average, 6 treatments are carried out, usually once every 4-6 weeks. Maintenance treatment recommended every 3-12 months.
What are the side effects? Is Micro-needling painful?
The side effects are minimal ( none have ever been reported in over 150,000 procedures performed worldwide). Usually, there may be a little redness and mild swelling ( in a similar way as mild sunburn for 24-48 hours) or may be minimal pin-point bleeding and/or bruising which can be treated by simply applying ice, as well, a gentle concealer and natural mineral cosmetics can be used soon after to hide any residual redness.
Prior to the treatment, numbing cream can be applied to minimize pain that is felt during the procedure.
Precautions for the first days after Micro-needling
After treatment is important to avoid the excessive heat for 12 hours (saunas, hot shower), the sun for for the next 48 hours; keep the area moist and wear SPF of 30 full spectrum (provides optimal protection if doing rejuvenation procedures). Also, avoid any aggressive skin care products such as scrubs, exfoliants, alpha or beta hydroxy acid products.
