Microneedle & Mesotherapy Treatments
Microneedle The concept of Skin Needling is based on the skin's natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage such as cuts, burns and other abrasions
How does Microneedling work?
Immediately after an injury to the skin our body reuses the damaged collagen an elastin fibres as well as other damaged skin components to produce new ones. Skin Needling allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self repair mechanism by crating micro-“injuries” in the skin which triggers new collagen synthesis. The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin. Skin Needling is a process carried out with a roller that is covered with numerous tiny needles. These needles used at North Okanagan Women’s Health penetrate the upper layers of skin to a depth of 0.5mm or 1.5mm. This process has two major benefits. It effectively stimulates collagen formation at the same time as providing a clear channel for topical serums / active ingredients in your skin care to be absorbed more effectively through the top layers (epidermis) of skin. Skin Needling creates a very minor (almost microscopic) trauma which lasts for a short period of time. Skin Needling is a form of Collagen Induction Therapy which is intended to smooth wrinkles and improve depressed acne scarring.
As your Technician rolls the Dermal Roller across your skin, it makes pin point punctures into the dermis. Your body perceives this as damage, which triggers the release of growth factors that, in turn, stimulate the production of elastin and collagen. The human body is designed to react to an injury by initiating the healing process, but usually it will just mend as far as it has to keep you in good health – which is very different to healing to a cosmetic level. By persistently triggering this healing process, you encourage your body to keep repairing until the job is done. Dermal Rolling (Skin Needling) may be conducted safely on all colours of skin and all types of skin.
After your microneedle treatment you can have either a PRP application topically or an SR Solution.
Nutrients penetrate the surface of the skin through the pin point punctures and hydrate and nourish and aid in the cellular repair and stimulating of the elasin and collagen fibres to reproduce. Collagen takes approximately 6-weeks for your body to produce. Moving you towards a more youthful looking you.
