Micro-Needling Treatment

About Medical Micro – Needling

Medical Micro-Needling, also referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy, is a break through remedy for the treatment of wrinkles and pigmentation, scars (including burn scars, acne scars and surgical scars) and stretch marks. This revolutionary celebrity treatment popular with Angelina Jolie and Demi Moore, has now been made available at Therapie clinics throughout Ireland.

Clinical studies have shown that micro needling produces channels in the dermis which sufficiently stimulate the body’s natural defenses to repair and produce concentrated amounts of collagen and proteins to the treated areas of skin. This results in the skins thickness being increased by up to 80% smoothing scars, visibly reducing stretch marks and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

How does Micro-Needling work

The treatment introduces fine needles to the skin to create microscopic channels. In doing so the dermis is encouraged to produce new collagen and elastin which generates new skin cells. The skin then becomes thicker, plumper and more youthful. Serums that are applied to the skin afterwards are also up to 1000 times more effective as the pores are opened and the product is absorbed deep into the skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

Microneedling

What skin conditions can Micro Needling treat?

Medical Micro Needling also referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy, works for a variety of skin conditions, including:

  • Treatment of scars (including burn scars, acne scars and surgical scars)
  • Stretch marks (including post pregnancy)
  • Wrinkles
  • Pigmentation marks

The microneedling produces channels in dermis which sufficiently stimulate the body’s natural defences to repair the skin, producing concentrated amounts of collagen and proteins to the treated areas of skin. This results in the skins thickness being increased by up to 80% smoothing scars, visibly reducing stretch marks and erasing wrinkles.

Is there any down time and does it hurt?

There is very little down time, although expect your skin to look and feel mildly sunburnt for about 24 hours after the treatment. It will also start to flake after a day or two as the skin cells slough off. This is a normal reaction and after about a week you’ll see the new, brighter, smooth skin. A topical cream is used to lessen sensitivity on the face, so there is no pain during the treatment.

Are there any side effects?

It varies by patient, but immediate side effects include redness, flaking, and mild irritation on the treated areas. These aren’t anything to worry about and will subside within 24-72 hours. It may be difficult to apply makeup over treated skin whilst it is flaking; similar to skin peeling after sunburn. Do not exfoliate as this will irritate the skin.
