What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is collagen induction therapy (CIT). It involves poking the skin multiple times using a specially designed electronic device with tiny needles at a targeted depth to induce regeneration via wound healing. No worries, a topical anesthetic will be applied! CIT is just one aspect of this treatment modality. Microinjury of the skin appears to reset or reboot cellular function. If melanocytes over-produce or under-produce pigment, needling normalizes melanogenesis (to even skin tone). The same can be said for keratinocytes when hyperkeratinisation exists, or sebocytes that overproduce oil. Thus, needling plays an important role in treating acne.
Medical grade growth factors are immediately applied to the skin during treatment to enhance results and speed recovery time. These medical growth factors are designed for microneedling. We strongly encourage purchasing the MD Stem Cell Skincare System to enhance results.
What does microneedling treat? Fine lines, Wrinkles, Scars, Acne scarring, Skin texture, Loose Skin, Softening of enlarged pores and Discoloration, stretch marks and hair restoration.
How many treatments will I need? There is no limit to the number of treatments. Generally, 3-6 treatments are recommended for anti-aging, scars, etc. Response is highly individual and there is no way to predict who will respond best. Wrinkles and scars will respond the best. Hair restoration can be difficult due to possible underlying conditions. Stretch marks and lax skin (if skin is separated from muscle) can also be difficult.
Contraindications / Special Precautions:
Irritated skin / Infected skin (contraindication) wait until healed
Keloid - history of lesions on palms/soles = high risk (contraindication)
Fungal skin infections - may appear as white spots and needling will spread infection (contraindication)
Psoriasis - Koebner phenomenon, lesions occur at site of injury (precaution)
Severe solar keratosis (contraindication)
Active Rosacea - may worsen with needling, risk increased pustules and telangiectasia (relative contraindication)
Eczema/dermatitis - disrupted barrier, micro needling will exacerbate dryness (precaution)
Autoimmune disease such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis (contraindication)
Skin cancer - cannot needle excision scar of Melanoma or Squamous Cell Carcinoma (contraindication)
Diabetes - impaired wound healing, risk of infection, glycation (precaution)
Anemia - delayed wound healing (precaution)
Raised moles and or/warts (contraindication)
Open wounds or sores (contraindication)
Severe active acne/cystic ance. Needling may spread infection, but may treat acne because it regulates hyperkeratinization, oil secretion, boosts immune response, and triggers anti-inflammatory cytokines. No accutane within the last 6-12 months (contraindication/precaution)
Cold sores may be triggered in patients prone to them, so consider prophylaxis such as Valtrex (precaution)
Anticoagulated Patients: Patients on Coumadin and other anticoagulant may present a challenge. Drugs or supplements such as ASA, Ibuprofen, NSAIDs, Vitamin E, Omega 3, Ginko Bloba, Garlic, Ginseng, Dong Quail, feverfew are known to prolong bleeding time; need not necessarily be discontinued, but obviously the risk of bruising is increased (precaution)
Atopy, Asthma, Hay Fever and Allergies: Any patient, but especially those with a history of allergies, may be prone to urticaria after needling due to release of histamines. Prior treatment with a long-acting antihistamine may be appropriate (contraindication if 2nd or 3rd treatment reports a rash requiring hydrocortisone or prednisone)
Drugs and Supplements associated with Photosensitivity - antibiotics, antihistamines, etc (precaution)
Fitzpatrick III and above - consideration to avoid post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (precaution)
Fillers/Neuromodulators - Permanent fillers is a contraindication to avoid granuloma. Hyaluronic acid fillers, postpone needling for two weeks. Neuromodulators such as Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, etc., wait 48hrs before needling
What to expect post treatment:
Predicted appearance after microneeling is typically equivalent to a mild sunburn. Bruising is a rarity, but if it does occur it is typically apparent immediately. Unless a patient is on blood thinners, bleeding and oozing should stop quickly. Petechiae is possible and will disappear.
Day 1: A Predominant feature is erythema and most patients appear flushed or mildly sunburnt. Seldomly, bruising and dark purple-red patches in light skin may be apparent after very aggressive treatments. More common is a puffy facial appearance or slight bruising, especially close to eyes and thin-skinned areas. Skin feels tight and dry, but little to no discomfort. It feels very similar to a sunburn. Follow the provided after care instructions.
Day 2: A red hue persists on light skin, like a moderate sunburn. Bruising, if any, starts to lighten. In a few cases, swelling may be worse on the second day and some people may not be ready to be seen in public. This isn't likely and the majority return to work the next day wearing makeup.
Day 3-6: The skin may appear pink but is typically back to normal coloring within 24hrs. Any swelling and or bruising subsides. Skin may start to feel dry. Flaking is prevalent at this point. Do not forcefully slough off the dead skin cells. Continue to hydrate skin and follow the provided home care instructions with provided kit (if applies to service).
Day 7: Most patients show very few signs of visible procedure.
