Microneedling (Collagen Induction Therapy) is a non-surgical and non-ablative procedure used to treat various skin conditions such as aging, scarring, hyperpigmentation, cellulite, and hair loss.
The microneedling treatment is done using the Eclipse Micropen by EVO. This automated microneedling tool is innovative to the world of medical aesthetics. Microneedling tools are made up of small needles that gently puncture the skin to create small, controlled wounds. These small wounds are unnoticeable, but the skin recognizes the need to heal itself, triggering the production of collagen. The increase of collagen production helps smooth out scars, fine lines, wrinkles, etc.
Microneedling can be performed on all parts of the body, including the face, neck, collar bones, arms, hands, scalp, legs, abdomen and back.
Clients will notice redness on treatment areas. On average, clients experience redness between 2 to 4 days; however, clients typically heal in as little as 24 hours.
This will be dependent on a number of factors, including age, the area being treated, skin conditions and damage.
In most cases it is usually over the course of 3-6 treatments, generally spaced between 4 and 8 weeks apart.
The area will be numbed with a topical local anaesthetic and therefore should not be painful. However, the brow area and the upper lip are slightly more sensitive to treat.
Studies have also shown that microneedling is often a better treatment than dermabrasion, chemical peels, and laser resurfacing.
It is proven to be just as effective in its ability to stimulate collagen and elastin production. Regular microneedling can thicken skin, smooth scars of all sizes, and erase wrinkles.
