If you have uneven, dull, or lifeless skin, wrinkles, open pores, scarring or pigmentation, Micro-Needling is the solution for you.
Micro-Needling, or otherwise known as or Dermal Rolling or Collagen Induction Therapy, is a safe, chemical-free method that triggers new collagen production. Based on acupuncture, and using multiple needles that differ in size, this treatment creates tiny punctures in the skin that encourage the production of new collagen. Skin-Needling kick-starts the body’s natural wound healing response underneath the skin and will progressively work to fill in the scar, stretch mark, or wrinkles being treated, making them less noticeable
The procedure has been performed for many years, and has been proven to treat a number of skin conditions and problems.
• Acne Scarring
• Uneven Tone
• Hypopigmentation (Vitiligo)
• Stretch Marks
Your Vivo Skin Therapist will analyse your skin to see if you are a suitable candidate for Micro-Needling. During this consultation, you will be able to ask your Skin Therapist any questions you have regarding the procedure. At this time your Skin Therapist will discuss what results you can expect to achieve with the recommended Micro-Needling programme.
Duration: Your Micro-Needling treatment will take from 45-60mins. Before commencing, your Skin Therapist will apply a topical anesthetic cream to the area being treated. This will minimise skin sensitivity throughout the procedure, and the only sensation you should feel is some light pressure during the actual Micro-Needling process.
Aftercare: It is normal to experience mild to moderate redness, swelling and sensitivity that can last between twelve to forty-eight hours. Some patients may experienced light bruising that can last for roughly two to three days, however this is normal due to the increased pressure applied. After a few days, the area will start to feel dry and tight, but this is a normal occurrence as your skin begins to heal and produce new collagen.
For Best Results: Visible results usually require multiple sessions. Improvement in skin tone and texture will start to show within six to eight weeks and will continue to improve drastically in the following months*, Results include smoother skin, improved skin tone, reduction of scars and pitting, improved texture of stretch marks, and a reduction in fine lines. We recommend between 3-8 treatments as a general guideline, Your Skin Therapist will advise of the best plan of action at your free Micro-Needling Consultation.
*Results may vary from person to person.
Not Recommended For: People who have active skin infections (such as cold sores), Hemophilia, a history of problems with healing, or who have had some anti-acne treatments in the past year.
