Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy (CIT), dermarolling, or skin needling) is a skin puncturing technique that encourages a glowing and fresh complexion. Naya Spa uses derma rollers or SkinPen to create hundreds of microscopic puncture marks onto the top layer of the skin. This puncturing results in collagen production, elastin production, and cell turnover increasing, leaving your skin plump, hydrated, and more even toned. Microneedling is most commonly recommended to address skin concerns such as scarring, acne, and hair loss. It can also address hyperpigmentation, and repair UV damage.
The treatment at Naya Spa is virtually pain free! After your appointment, you can expect some initial redness, which will subside in 24-48 hours. Most clients start to see results immediately, with full results appearing in the weeks following treatment.
WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?
Microneedling is a technique that utilizes small, fine needles, to create hundreds of microscopic puncture marks on the top layer of the skin. The puncturing triggers the body’s natural wound healing process and as a result, collagen production, elastin production, and cell turnover increase, resulting in plumper, thicker, and healthier looking skin. For your comfort and safety, Naya Spa completes your microneedling treatment using the SkinStylus or microneedling roller.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
With such a long list of desirable benefits, of It’s no wonder that microneedling’s popularity has skyrocketed recently. After a microneedling session at Naya Spa, guests can expect skin to be smoother, more hydrated, and more even in tone. Your baby soft face will not only be richer in collagen and elastin but will also be even more resilient in the future.
WHAT SKIN CONCERNS CAN MICRONEEDLING ADDRESS?
Microneedling is recommended for anyone looking to improve the appearance of scars, wrinkles, or premature aging. The process of microneedling is also known to stimulate blood flow and release vascular endothelial growth factor, which promotes hair growth, and improves follicle/hair size.
In addition, it also restores keratinocyte function, which helps address hyperpigmentation. We also encourage you to ask us about how microneedling can be used to treat thick skin density, and repair UV damage.
We also recommend mixing platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) with microneedling. This is considered the gold standard for skin rejuvenation,
WHAT CAN I EXPECT POST-TREATMENT?
When you leave your microneedling appointment, you can expect a little redness which should subside in the first 24-48 hours after your treatment. You’ll see some of the skin tightening and pore reduction results immediately, with full results visible in weeks following treatment.
It’s important to us that you get the most out of your microneedling treatment, so our in-house expert will be happy to chat with you about ways to ensure the best possible results after you leave our office. The use of oral vitamins/supplements and topical creams, as well as keeping up a regular exercise regimen, can help improve the healing process.
HOW DOES MICRONEEDLING COMPARE TO SIMILAR TREATMENTS?
Contrary to popular belief, microneedling is actually far more than just collagen induction. The controlled trauma process of microneedling is also considered more effective and more reliable than fraxel and laser treatments (which can cause certain medical issues to flare up).
WHAT ARE THE CONTRAINDICATIONS?
Caution should always be taken before undergoing medical treatment of any kind. Microneedling may not be right for you if:
- You have an active skin infection
- You have active pimples or cold sores
- You have keloid scarring
PLEASE DISCUSS ANY ADDITIONAL CONCERNS THAT YOU HAVE ABOUT UNDERGOING THIS PROCEDURE WITH NAYA SPA AND YOUR PRIMARY CARE PHYSICIAN PRIOR TO TREATMENT.
