Micro Needling


Mesotherapy Micro Needling is a cosmetic procedure that has gained popularity for its ability to rejuvenate the skin and address various skin concerns. This technique combines two main components:    – Micro Needling, also referred to as collagen induction therapy, involves the use of a device equipped with fine, sterile needles. These needles create tiny, controlled punctures (micro-injuries) in the skin’s surface. The purpose of micro needling is to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes, which includes the production of collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are essential proteins that help maintain skin’s elasticity and firmness.   – Mesotherapy is a technique that involves the injection of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other beneficial ingredients directly into the middle layer of the skin. The goal of mesotherapy is to nourish the skin, promote collagen production, and address specific skin issues such as wrinkles, fine lines, pigmentation, hydration, and skin laxity.  

When these two techniques are combined, it is called mesotherapy needling. Here’s how the process generally works:

1. Consultation: Before the treatment, a consultation with a qualified practitioner is essential. They will assess your skin type, concerns, and medical history to determine if mesotherapy needling is appropriate for you.  

2. Preparation: Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed, and a topical anesthetic cream may be applied to minimize discomfort during the procedure.  

3. Treatment: The micro needling device is passed over the treatment area, creating controlled micro-injuries to initiate the skins repair mechanism. The mesotherapy solution is applied to the treated area and can penetrate deeper into the skin through the tiny channels created by the needles. The specific cocktail of ingredients can vary depending on your skin concerns.  

4. Post-treatment Care: After the treatment, a recovery cream is typically applied to hydrate the skin and protect from trans epidermal water loss. The LED Healite can also be added on post treatment to help reduce any redness or inflammation.  

5. Recovery: After the procedure, you may experience redness, swelling, and mild discomfort, similar to a sunburn. These side effects typically subside within a few days. Our skin therapist will guide you through a personalised post-care routine to ensure the best healing and results.

6. Results: Over time, as collagen and elastin production increases and the skin heal, you can expect to see gradual improvements in skin texture, tone, and firmness. The exact results depend on the individual and the specific concerns being addressed.  

7. Maintenance: Depending on your goals, you will require multiple sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart to achieve optimal results. Maintenance sessions may also be recommended to sustain the benefits.  

It’s important to note that mesotherapy needling should be performed by a qualified and experienced practitioner to ensure safety and effectiveness. While the procedure can be used to treat a range of skin concerns, results may vary from person to person, and not everyone is an ideal candidate. Always consult with a skincare professional to determine if mesotherapy needling is suitable for your unique skin needs and concerns.

The choice of acid depends on your specific skin needs. The solution is left on the skin for a short period, usually just a few minutes. During this time, you may experience a mild tingling sensation.

Over the next few days, you may experience mild dryness or flaking of the skin which can be managed with post-treatment skincare.
