Micro-needling is an effective form of rejuvenation for acne scars or stretch marks, dark spots and freckles caused by the sun, as well as skin laxity, wrinkles, and large pores.
The Micro-needling device is passed over the area to be treated, and inserts tiny sterile needles into the skin, leaving minute puncture wounds. These tiny punctures trigger the body’s wound healing response and encourage the body to renew the skin cells in that area. While the body repairs the skin, it increases the production of collagen and elastin, immediately plumping the area, and causing a diminishment to wrinkles. As the body repairs the skin you will also see scarring, dark marks and sun damage decreasing. In addition, we can use micro-needling to deposit serums such as Vitamin C or topical tretinoin deeper into the skin. This can greatly boost treatment results.
Micro-needling is suitable for:
HOW DOES MICRO-NEEDLING WORK?
The tiny punctures cause micro-trauma to the skin and the body's natural healing response causes new collagen formation or neocollagenis. Collagen is an essential protein that helps keep the skin looking youthful with a firm and elastic texture.
Aging causes the loss of collagen in the skin leading to wrinkles, fine lines and loss of firmness. This can make acne scars and other skin imperfections more obvious. Neocollagenesis is a gradual occurrence over time and for best results a series of 3 treatments is recommended.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF MICRO-NEEDLING?
At Deva Medspa in Coal Harbor, Vancouver, our clients see many benefits from micro-needling including skin rejuvenation, lessening of scars, wrinkles, pores, stretch marks and pigmentation.
To get even better results, micro-needling can be done with Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP aka the Vampire FaceLift.
Micro-needling is also effective for alopecia and general hair regeneration. The process works in much the same way; as the wound healing response takes place, it stimulates blood circulation and increases nutrients reaching the hair follicles, this combined with the stimulation of proteins in the area can result in new hair growth.
LIKE FACIAL MICRO-NEEDLING IT CREATES MICRO-INJURIES
The skin's healing mechanism responds to ‘micro injuries’ caused by the micro needles, which leads to a rise in important growth factors and stem cells in the scalp as well as hair growth-related genes to create an increase in hair production
Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP is a 3 step treatment in which a person's blood is drawn, processed, and then painlessly re-infused into the scalp.
