Microneedling induces collagen production and actually strengthens the epidermis. The expert technician uses a wand that contains very fine needles. When passed over the skin, the needles create micro "injuries" in the skin to trigger a new collagen synthesis. Each micro "injury" creates channel that triggers the body to produce new collagen and elastin to fill the microscopic wound. This procedure has no major side effects and beautiful results are noticeable in a short period of time.
Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) involves using fine needles to create hundreds of tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of skin. It may not sound appealing, but this minimally invasive treatment is very effective. The micro injuries you create stimulates the body's natural natural wound healing processes, resulting in cell turnover and increased collagen and elastin production, therefore reversing as well as preventing signs of aging. Microneedling works the same way lasers do, only you're injuring the skin mechanically instead of using heat or light.
The major benefits of Micro-needling include:
*Reduce fine and deep wrinkles
*Repair visible scars
*Prevents Signs of Aging
*Reverse sun damage and pigmentation
*Help aging skin
*Make your skincare products work better
*Can be done all over your body
Best to do a series of 3-4 and to do it every 6 months to a year for optimal skin health and maintenance. It may take 6-8 treatments for acne scarring.
At Karelia there is 2 different options:
$250 is the microneedling service and an enzyme is done prior to better penetrate the hyaluronic acid into the skin.
$350 is where the service includes an enzyme prior and after the needling we put a pure cooling hyaluronic acid mask and finishing it off with LED which helps speed up the healing recovery and further stimulating collagen. During the session we use a medical grade hyaluronic acid with strongest growth factors on the market.
