Skin Needling: What you need to know

There are two ways to execute skin needling. Skin needling with the Wireless Tri-M Pen or dermal rolling with the cosmetic DNC derma roller. Which solution is ideal for you and your skin objectives will be determined by your Skin Therapist.

This therapy, which is favored by beauty experts all around the world, involves rolling a small roller made of microscopic needles across the skin’s surface. The roller causes micro-punctures in the skin, which encourages natural collagen renewal and regeneration.

This wound healing reaction increases the synthesis of new collagen and elastin, which helps to fill fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scarring. Pigmentation, increased pores, and stretch marks are all reduced as well.

What is skin needling and what happens in the process?

This procedure is not suitable for all skin types; clients must have a complimentary consultation to verify suitability before treatment. Your therapist will build a customized preparation strategy based on your skin type during your initial consultation. Following your preparation plan is crucial to getting the most out of your skin needling treatment.

  • How does it work?

Collagen synthesis is the secret to glowing skin.

Micro-needling works by creating minute perforations, or micro-channels, in the skin with tiny needles. This boosts the deeper layers’ healing response and encourages your skin to produce new collagen-rich tissue.

The procedure creates micro-channels that allow active compounds in your skincare products to permeate to the deepest layers of the skin, resulting in even more effective benefits. Throughout our clinic network, we use a variety of professional micro-needling devices; please contact your local clinic for more information about their device.

  • What are the risks?

Microneedling is usually thought to be safe and effective by doctors, however, there are still certain hazards.

The most serious risk is skin inflammation following the treatment. Other possible adverse effects include:

Swelling, pain, and bruising at the location, as well as dryness and flaking of the skin

Bleeding is a rare side effect of micro-needling, however, it is more likely to happen after a deeper treatment.

People with bleeding problems or who take blood-thinning drugs may be at a higher risk of bleeding. Before receiving this treatment, it’s critical to tell your doctor about your medical history.

Two weeks before the procedure:

On the face, stay away from laser hair removal, waxing, depilatory creams, and IPL treatments.

Peels that are intended for cosmetic use should be avoided. Cosmetic injectables should be avoided.

Sun exposure should be avoided at all costs, and SPF should be worn at all times. We recommend using a melanin inhibitor like the Skinstitut Even Blend serum on customers with medium to dark skin tones or who are prone to hyperpigmentation. Hyperpigmentation will be less likely as a result of this.

Exfoliating products like Retin-A and exfoliating acids should be avoided one week before treatment.

It is recommended to use a melanin inhibitor like the Skinstitut Even Blend serum on customers with medium to dark skin tones or who are prone to hyperpigmentation. This will help to lessen the likelihood of hyperpigmentation following therapy.

Within three to four hours, all redness and irritation will go away. Excessive sun exposure, hot showers, saunas, and physical exercise should be avoided for the first 48 hours.

  • Aftercare

For the next 24-48 hours, avoid swimming or heavy exercise.

Use moderate hydrating products like the Skinstitut Gentle Cleanser, Normal Moisturizer, and Rejuvenate 15 serum for proper aftercare (contains copper peptides which can help accelerate wound healing).

For the next five to seven days after the treatment, stay away from active/exfoliating products.
