Microneedling is a game changer!
I'll be completely forthright. I am a BIG fan of microneedling. Relatively new to the aesthetic marketplace, microneedling has a vast number of applications, with minimal downtime, a low side effect profile, and the potential for outstanding results!
Microneedling, commonly marketed as collagen induction therapy has been used in the medical literature for improvement of acne scars, fine lines/wrinkles, surgical scars, enlarged pores, and overall skin rejuvenation.
By creating numerous microchannels in the skin with a depth of penetration set by your aesthetic expert, a controlled stimulation is made to your dermis (the deeper collagen containing layer of skin). The stimulation encourages your own body to produce various growth factors, deposit fresh, new collagen and elastin, which over a weeks to months results in skin tightening, wrinkle reduction and a marked overall improvement in your skin.
In addition, the physical action of the microneedling device can break up scar bands which often are the cause of the un-aesthetic appearance of surgical scars and acne scars.
At The Garden, we typically apply a vitamin A or C solution which through the microchannels created by the microneedling device allows for increased absorption of topical products - a technique known as transdermal drug delivery. In addition, we have a established protocol that makes the treatment as painless and comfortable as possible.
Microneedling can be combined with almost any other treatment we offer and we typically recommend 3 or more treatments for maximum results but even after 1 treatment - improvement can be seen! It can be safely done on any skin color too!
Microneedling = Macro Results :)
