Microneedling

The most talked about treatment

Reduce fine lines and wrinkles, plump facial volume and fade acne scarring at  Durban’s leading Skin Clinic.

Microneedling is a type of treatment that uses small needles to cause tiny punctures in the skin. These small contact points encourage the body to create a wound healing response and renew the skin cells. As your skin repairs, the production of collagen and elastin is triggered to give an almost immediate plumping effect.. This results in smoother and healthier looking skin. You will have an increase in blood flow to your skin, so the necessary nutrients can reach your skin. It can also help tackle other skin damage such as scarring, sun damage and ageing.

Microneedling is a great treatment for you if you have darker skin because it doesn’t involve peels or lasers, which can cause pigmentation.

The best results from Microneedling are seen after a course of treatment.

FAQ

How does Medical Micro-Needling work?

The device slides along the skin and penetrates upper layers of the skin to a depth of up to 2mm to create tiny needle wounds. This signals the body to respond by producing collagen and elastin fibers. As a result, the skin becomes fuller, thus reducing the appearance of scars, lines, and wrinkles

What conditions can be treated or improved with Micro-Needling?

Some of the conditions that Medical Microneedling is known to improve include:

  • Mild to moderate acne scarring
  • Enlarged pores
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sagging skin
  • Pigmentation
  • Skin texture
  • Stretch marks

What will I look like after the treatment?

Most people will notice redness and mild swelling similar to slight sunburn for 24-48 hours and there may be slight pinpoint bleeding and/or bruising. Skin will be noticeably smoother and more radiant within a week or two. Full results will take a few months to appear.

What does the procedure involve?

It begins with cleaning and numbing the skin. A collagen-stimulating product, Vitamin C serum, and/or skin lightener is also used. A small pen with 12 tiny needles is used to create tiny wounds in the skin. The speed and adjustability of the needles allows for more effective piercing and absorption of skin products. Vitamin-C serum or Hyaluronic acid are used after the procedure to hydrate, heal and protect the skin.

What is the down time after Medical Micro-Needling treatment?

Inflammation of the skin is very temporary and reduces greatly within a few hours. It may remain slightly pink for up to 48 hours after treatment. Using hyaluronic acid after the procedure can help reduce inflammation, and sunscreen can be used to protect the skin. Makeup use should be limited to mineral makeup.

What are the benefits of Medical Micro-Needling?

Some of the known benefits of Medical Microneedling include: greatly improves topical cream effectiveness and penetration, stimulates blood circulation and collagen production, needles are non-allergenic, cost effective compared to other resurfacing procedures, works on all skin types, and can treat the scalp, face, and body, including skin around the eyes, mouth and neck.

What effects does the Medical Micro-Needling have on the skin?

Medical Microneedling is known to improve many aspects of the skin including, but not limited to: improves skin texture and reduces the appearance of wrinkles, regenerates tissue, improves the appearance of scars, reduces the size of pores, and reduces the appearance of stretch marks

Can Micro-Needling be performed on any skin color?

Medical Micro-needling is safe to use on all skin types and colors without risk of post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation.

Is Medical Micro-Needling painful?

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

How many treatments do I need and how often can Medical Micro-Needling procedures be repeated?

Micro-needling can be safely repeated every 4-6 weeks as needed. Collagen induction requires at least 3 treatments, while scar reduction requires between 3 and 6. 4 to 6 weeks should pass between one treatment and the next, and the number of treatments needed depends on individual cases. Micro-needling can be used on all parts of the body (neck, décolleté, arms, legs, etc). Usually results begin to appear after the first treatment.

What are the side effects of the Medical Micro-Needling procedure?

No negative side effects result from micro-needling, and none have been seen in the more than 150,000 procedures that have been done worldwide.

What should I avoid on my skin after treatment?

AHA’s (glycolic Acid), retinol, acidic or “active” ingredients should not be used for 2-3 days after treatment to allow for maximum healing. Sun exposure is not recommended and sunscreen is encouraged

Am I a candidate for the Medical Micro-Needling?

Medical micro-needling is safe on all skin types and colors because the epidermis is not damaged during treatment. The chance of change in pigmentation or post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation is minimal. Skin micro-needling can be used on sensitive and fragile areas (eyes, neck, back of hands) that cannot be treated easily with other procedures. Micro-needling is not suitable for patients who have used Accutane (isotretinoin) within the last three months, have open wounds, cuts or abrasions, have had radiation skin treatment within the last year, are suffering from any skin infection, condition, or herpes simplex in the area of concern, are pregnant or breast feeding, have any history of keloid or hypertrophic scars or poor wound healing

How much does the treatment cost?

This is discussed during a free consultation. A treatment is put together for each client, at which point cost is discussed. Treatment decisions are based on each patient’s individual needs and desired results. Medical micro-needling can be used in conjunction with other treatments.
