Recover perfect skin with Microneedling
Microneedling is a revolutionary skin care technique that has gained popularity in recent years. This non-invasive and safe method is widely used in aesthetic medicine to improve the appearance of the skin and treat various skin problems. In this article, we will explore microneedling in depth, its benefits and how it works.
What is microneedling?
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a procedure that stimulates the natural production of collagen and elastin in the skin by specialized cells in the skin called fibroblasts. This technique involves using a microneedle device to create tiny perforations at different depths in the skin, which triggers the skin’s natural healing process. As a result, the production of collagen and elastin by our fibroblasts is stimulated by this technique, which improves the overall appearance of the skin.
The benefits of Microneedling
Microneedling offers many benefits to the health and appearance of the skin. Some of the main benefits include:
1. Reduction of wrinkles and fine lines: Microneedling stimulates collagen production, which helps smooth out wrinkles and fine lines.
2. Improved skin texture: The procedure promotes cell regeneration, which improves skin texture and gives it a fresher, younger look.
3. Scar reduction: Microneedling can help fade acne, chicken pox or post-trauma scars and surgical scars by promoting collagen production and remodeling scar tissue.
4. Reduction of enlarged pores: The micro-perforations created by microneedling help tighten enlarged pores and improve the overall appearance of the skin.
How does a Microneedling session work?
A microneedling session usually consists of several steps:
1. Initial consultation with the aesthetic doctor: During this first step, the practitioner will evaluate your skin, determine if microneedling is the best option for you, the number of sessions and their pace, check that there are no medical contraindications and answer all your questions.
2. Skin Cleansing: Prior to the treatment, your skin will be removed of makeup and cleansed to remove impurities and residue.
3. Application of numbing cream: A numbing cream can be applied to the treatment area to minimize discomfort during the procedure.
4. Microneedling treatment: The practitioner will use a microneedling device to create tiny perforations in the skin surface. The depth of the needles is adjusted according to your needs and the area to be treated.
5. What happens after the treatment: The treated area will be red for a variable duration of 1 to 5 hours with sometimes a little localized edema. It is recommended to apply a healing and moisturizing cream and sun protection spf 50 at least. Do not engage in physical activities that make you sweat, do not go to the pool, steam room or sauna, and do not wear makeup for 48 hours while the microperforations are healing.
How often is microneedling done?
The protocol varies according to the problem to be treated, the age and the condition of the skin. Overall, it varies from 1 to 3 sessions spaced 3 to 5 weeks apart and then 1 to 2 sessions per year for maintenance.
At what depth is microneedling done?
The depth of needle puncture varies according to the indication of the treatment and the area to be treated. The thickness of the skin varies according to the area of the face and body, the practitioner varies this depth for each area (cheeks, eye contour, forehead, chin, neck …)
At Maison Magnifisens, Dr. Sandra Texier uses a Skinpen Precision medical microneedling that can treat skin from 0.25 to 2.5mm.
The SkinPen has many advantages:
– Safety: it is FDA approved and meets the highest standards for safety and effectiveness. The single-use cartridges safeguard against a risk of infection.
– Effectiveness: the Skin Pen Precision has been designed to deliver optimal results. The SkinPen Precision performance is due to the 96,000 skin microperforations made in 1 minute which results in optimal stimulation of fibroblasts to make collagen. In addition, the high quality motor and adjustable needle depth allow for a personalized treatment.
– Comfort: treatment with SkinPen Precision is generally well tolerated by patients because it is designed to minimize discomfort. The use of an anesthetic cream applied topically to the treated area prior to treatment further reduces the sensation experienced during the microneedling procedure.
– Reduced recovery time due to its minimally invasive technique and precision. Recovery is much faster than with other similar tools.The majority of patients can return to their activities after 24/48 hours without social eviction.
– Microneedling for all skin types including sensitive and dark skin.
Dr. Sandra Texier also uses The Morpheus8 which is the combination of microneedling and fractional radiofrequency.
Microneedling can also be combined with other treatments to maximize results. For example, it can be combined with specific serums or topical products to improve skin hydration and nutrition or complemented with LED light treatment to achieve even more dramatic results.
