What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a technique that uses tiny sterile micro-needles to create very small, controlled “injuries” to skin. These microscopic injuries then heal, resulting in an improvement in the appearance of the skin. It also allows for active ingredients to be absorbed into the deeper skin layers. While darker skin types are more prone to side effects from lasers they are usually ideal candidates for micro-needling.
The benefits of microneedling include the reduction and or improvement of conditions including:
What does the procedure involve?
The skin is cleaned and numbing cream may be applied to lessen discomfort. A small handheld pen-like device with a sterile, disposable tip with 13 tiny needles is then used to pierce the skin. The SkinStylus® multi-speed and adjustable needle depth allow microneedles to pierce the skin’s layer at 90 degrees and increase the absorption of products. After the treatment, soothing EstheCeuticals® topicals are used to hydrate, heal and protect the skin.
Are SkinStylus® treatments painful?
SkinStylus® treatments have a minimal amount of pain but topical numbing cream can be applied prior to the treatment to minimize discomfort.
What to expect and post-treatment instructions for after a SkinStylus® treatment:
