Medical Micro-Needling: Frequently Asked Questions

What is Medical Micro Needling?
For skin micro-needling, we use an electric skin needling device made especially for this purpose. The device is a pen shaped studded with 12 very fine needles. It is a medical device used in micro needling to break down old scar tissue and to stimulate skin cells to proliferate. This cell multiplication results in the formation of new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibers as well as in new capillaries for an improved blood supply.

What Conditions Can Be Treated or Improved With Medical Micro Needling?

  • Mild to Moderate Acne Scarring

  • Fine Lines and Wrinkles

  • Loose, Lax Skin

  • Skin Texture and Pore Size

  • Stretch Marks

How Does Medical Micro Needling Work?

The device slides along the skin, penetrating the upper layers of the skin to a depth of up to 2mm to create numerous tiny needle wounds. The procedure prompts the body to respond through the creation of new collagen and elastin fibers. In response to the stimulus, the skin plumps and thickens, reducing the appearance of scars, and fine lines and wrinkles.

What Does the Procedure Involve?

The skin is cleaned and numbing cream may be applied to assure nor discomfort. For better results we use a collagen-stimulating product like MicroGlide GF and New Youth Products  A small handheld pen like device with a sterile, disposable tip with 12 tiny needles is then used to pierce the skin. Our eclipse pen is multi-speed and adjustable needle depth allow needles to pierce the skin’s layer at 90 degrees and increase the absorption of products. After the treatment you will feel like your skin is tight, this will subside within 24 hours.

What Will I Look Like After Treatment?

Most people will experience slight redness and mild swelling in a similar way as mild sunburn for 24-48 hours and there may be minimal pin-point bleeding. Within a week or two, you will notice that your skin is smoother and more radiant looking but the full effects won’t be seen until a few months later. Nothing to worry about, you can wear make-up the next day and yes you can work. For men protocol is the same minus the make-up of course. Most people look like they have a slight tan or sun-kissed.

What Downtime is Required After Medical Micro-Needling Treatment?

The inflammatory reaction of the skin is extremely short and fades significantly within hours from redness to pinkish that may last for 12 to 48 hours. In order to reduce visible redness, we recommend hyaluronic acid after the procedure, and to protect the skin with zinc based sunblock. The use of mineral makeup is recommended after procedure.

Prior to the treatment, numbing cream can be applied to minimize pain that is felt during the procedure.

Can Micro-Needling be Performed on Any Skin Color?

How Many/Much Treatment(s) Do I Need?

Micro-needling can be safely repeated every 4-6 weeks until you achieve the desired results. For collagen induction we recommend to start with 3 treatments, but with a minimum separation time of 4 to 6 weeks between treatments. For scar reduction an average of 3 to 6 treatments are recommended. The number of treatments required will depend on how each individual responds to the treatments, and the extent of the damage at the beginning Micro-needling with or without the MicroGlide GF or PRP treatemt can be used on all skin parts of the body (neck, décolleté, arms, legs, etc). Most people will begin to see results after the very first appointment.

Risks of post-op infections? 
Since the tiny pricking channels close within one hour, and provided the procedure is done under clinical conditions, post-op infections are extremely unlikely.

What Should I Avoid After Receiving MicroGlide GF / Micro-Needling Treatment?

To ensure the right healing environment, for 2-3 days do not use AHA’s (glycolic-acid), retinol, acidic or “active” ingredients. Exposure to sun should also be avoided or zinc based sunblock should be used.
