Micro-needling: The latest Non-invasive Anti-Aging Treatment

March 2, 2016 General

Warrenville – Combining medical technology with the body’s own healing process tends to be a beautiful collaboration for successful anti-aging results, and micro-needling is no exception. This technology uses fine needles to create tiny micro channels in the skin that trigger the body’s natural healing process by creating collagen. Collagen production is important because it strengthens the skin’s connective tissue and structural matrix to smooth texture, enhances elasticity and reduces fine lines.


Micro-needling makes a great addition to your anti-aging arsenal and requires very little downtime. By creating a controlled micro injury to the skin, penetration of high grade medical ingredients can occur. Micro-needling is great for any skin that is structurally weak. Micro-needling may also be used as an acne scarring treatment for the face and body.


During a micro-needling procedure, your skin is pre-numbed, so the treatment itself is very comfortable. Plan for your skin to be pink for up to five days, the average being 24-48 hours after the treatment.  Initially, you may feel like you have a sunburn, but this feeling will subside within a few hours. This treatment is ideal for those who don’t have a lot of downtime.


The number of micro-needling sessions needed varies (three to six) depending on the severity of the skin and desired results. After you have finished your initial treatment series, it is recommended that you follow-up with one or two sessions each year for maintenance. Micro-needling is safe for all parts of the body; face, neck and chest being the most popular.
