Cosmetic Skin Needling

For several years microneedling has been talked about as one of the most effective non-invasive techniques for the treatment of aesthetic imperfections, but what is microneedling really? What areas can be treated? What are the most effective substances to be applied during this technique?

What is microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive technique combining the generation of microchannels in the skin and the topical application of active principles. Mini-perforations are created in the skin that work to increase the absorption of topically applied products. This synergy between the needles and the solution used produces a biostimulation that multiplies the effectiveness and maximizes the results of the treatment.

What areas can be treated and what aesthetic problems can be treated?
Microneedling can be effectively used in many different areas of the face and body. On the scalp it slows down and improves hair loss; on the face, neckline or hands it treats hypermigrations, lack of vitality in the skin and / or flaccidity and wrinkles. On the body it treats flaccidity and lack of turgor in the arms, abdomen and legs; and fights against localized fat and cellulite in ‘saddle bags’, double chin, abdominal fat, knees and legs.

Which equipment is the most suitable for this technique?
mesoestetic has developed the m.pen [pro], an effective wireless device, featuring different speeds and depths for greater efficiency and safety. The device maximises the effect of active substances on the skin, any product applied during or after treatment is quickly and easily absorbed by the skin offering a more effective result than simple topical application.

How will I look immediately after treatment? 
Your skin will be red and flushed in appearance in a similar way as moderate sunburn. You will also experience skin tightness and mild sensitivity to touch. This will diminish greatly after a few hours following treatment and within the next 48 hours you skin will be completely healed. After 5 days there is barely any evidence that the procedure has taken place. The Length of the downtime and recovery time depends on the micro needle size used in your treatment.
