HOW DOES MICRONEEDLING/DERMAPEN WORK?
The tip of a microneedling device has a grouping of extremely fine needles that rapidly pierce the surface of the skin. The depth of penetration is meticulously selected by your service provider in order to give a safe, effective treatment for each unique patient.
The body’s natural response to the micro-punctures is to increase collagen production.
Collagen is essential for healthy, youthful skin, and stimulating collagen production works to rejuvenate the skin’s texture and appearance. Microneedling is a powerful treatment that has now become one of the most popular offerings at Karmalite.
HOW DOES MICRONEEDLING TRANSFORM YOUR SKIN?
Microneedling is a versatile cosmetic treatment that can resolve many common skin concerns. Benefits of microneedling include:
KICKSTARTS COLLAGEN PRODUCTION
Collagen is the body’s age-reversing protein compound that helps seal in moisture and ensures a smooth, radiant complexion. As we age, the body’s production of collagen decreases. Microneedling causes controlled trauma, which triggers the body’s natural wound-healing response and creates an increase in collagen production to restore a youthful glow.
HELPS CORRECT FACIAL SCARRING
Karmalite is renowned for the way it service providers uses microneedling as part of their approach in treating acne scars. They often perform microneedling with radiofrequency to effectively reduce the appearance of acne scars. Our patients enjoy significant improvement to their acne scars with no negative side effects as a result of microneedling treatments. Microneedling can also be performed to minimize scars from injuries.
OTHER TYPES OF SKIN CORRECTIONS
Microneedling can actually be performed head-to-toe and on all skin types to address pigmentation issues, repair sun damage, reduce the appearance of pores, and tighten the skin.
SPEEDS UP THE ABSORPTION OF TOPICAL SERUMS
After a microneedling session, the skin is more receptive to the absorption of serums, nutrients, antioxidants, and vitamins. Enhanced absorption is beneficial when it comes to fighting off free radical damage from the environment as well as the effects of stress and aging.
HELPS REDUCE WRINKLES AND FINE LINES
Sagging, wrinkled skin can be revitalized through microneedling, while fine lines, creases, and folds can be gently reversed. What’s more, microneedling can be more cost-effective than some laser and light treatments, and it can be performed more frequently.
MICRONEEDLING WITH PRP
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an increasingly popular, natural method of accelerating healing and encouraging optimal cellular function. PRP is created from the patient’s own blood.
To further enrich the protein and growth factor-rich serum, Karmalite’s doctors use specialized kits to separate and enrich the PRP. The PRP is applied topically to the skin after microneedling to help the skin rebuild while reducing inflammation and redness.
Applying PRP after microneedling allows for deeper penetration of the serum into the skin via the tiny punctures. The skin’s enhanced ability to absorb topical serums after microneedling also makes this combination of treatments incredibly effective and encourages a quick recovery from the microneedling treatment.
