SKIN NEEDLING SERVICES & TRAINING
** WHAT IS SKIN NEEDLING OR COLLAGEN REJUVENATION THERAPY? **​

Microneedle therapy (also referred to as Skin Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT)  is one the newest, easiest and most effective skin treatments available and is a process which can be carried out clinically or in the home). Skin Needling or Micro-Needling is a form of Collagen Induction Therapy which is intended to significantly improve the appearance of acne scars, sun damaged skin, facial and décolleté lines, wrinkles, scars, crows feet, pigmentation issues, and stretch marks. Skin needling will boost skin radiance, and firmness where visible improvements can be seen.

All services are done by a professionally trained artist, not by students.


How does skin needling work?
 The concept of skin needling is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage such as cuts, burns and other abrasions. Immediately after an injury occurs to the skin our body reuses the damaged collagen and elastin fibres as well as other damaged skin components to produce new ones. Skin needling allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self repair mechanism by creating micro “injuries” in the skin which triggers new collagen synthesis, yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring. The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin.

How is the treatment administered?
Skin needling procedures are performed by a professionally trained artist. The procedure is normally completed within 30-45 minutes depending on the required treatment and anatomical site. Before the procedure commences a topical anaesthetic and is applied to the client’s skin to ensure their comfort and a painless experience. After the skin is numbed, the artist starts the procedure on the client’s skin to puncture the outermost layers of the skin and create miniscule sub-cutaneous injuries. These microscopic wounds stimulate new collagen deposition which may last for up to a year, yet they close within less than an hour causing minimal to no bruising or injury. Every client will vary with results.

What happens post-treatment?
After the procedure, the clients skin will be red and flushed in appearance in a similar way to a moderate sunburn. The client will also experience skin tightness and mild sensitivity to touch of the area being treated. This will diminish greatly after a few hours and within the next 24 hours the skin will be completely healed. After 3 days there is barely any evidence that the procedure has taken place.

How quickly are results visible?
 Visible results of skin rejuvenation are seen within 4-8 weeks following the procedure and will continue over the following months for up to a year. A course of 3 skin needling sessions are recommended, at 6-8 week intervals, in order to achieve optimal results; however a significant skin improvement is noticeable after just one treatment. Clients are also encouraged to use at home products on a daily basis in between their next skin needling session to enhance results.  

Is skin needling safe?
 Skin needling does not involve injections, therefore allergic reactions and side-effects are unlikely. It is minimally invasive, and involves minimal downtime (usually 24 hours). Rapid healing takes place immediately and the procedure requires simple after-care.

Can skin needling be carried out on Asian skin?
 Skin needling can be safely performed on all skin colours and types. There is no risk of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation as the melanocytes remain intact, like the epidermis, during skin needling. Other invasive procedures such as laser resurfacing are not recommended for Asian skin due to the potential risks of delayed wound healing, pigmentary changes and scarring. This is where skin needling has an advantage as these potential risks are very unlikely to occur due to the epidermis remaining intact. Use of skin needling is viewed as a suitable procedure as it does not affect the heightened wound healing response in Asian skin. This natural reaction that occurs does not disrupt the melanocytes, the cells that produce melanin which is a pigment responsible for skin colour.

Does it hurt?
Heck yes! Just kidding!! ;) The needle penetrates 0.1-0.2mm within the skin, and is specifically designed to penetrate deep enough to be very effective, yet not deep enough to touch nerves and cause excessive pain. When done correctly minimal discomfort is felt. Longer needles can cause pain however they also produce significantly better results. Therefore they can only be used by experts and have to be accompanied by a topical numbing agent. Normally this is a 4% Lidocaine or other anaesthetic creams which is applied 45 minutes before the procedure takes place. Once the procedure starts if the patient is still experiencing pain then additional anaesthetic may be applied after the skin is slightly broken to allow the topical to penetrate quicker.

What products can I use at home to enhance results?
Skin needling will induce collagen synthesis on its own (dry skin needling), but skin improvements are significantly enhanced by combining skin needling treatments with the topical application of vitamin A prior, during and post treatment. Vitamin C is an essential co-factor to be used alongside vitamin A. Both vitamin A and C work synergistically to induce collagen synthesis and help regenerate the skin. We recommend using our Dermaroller to enhance the skin’s absorption of the active ingredients from topical serums and creams.

What are the contraindications of skin needling treatments?
Relative contraindications include: keloid or raised scarring; history of eczema, psoriasis and other chronic conditions; history of actinic (solar) keratosis; history of Herpes Simplex infections; history of diabetes; presence of raised moles, warts or any raised lesions on targeted area. Absolute contraindications include; scleroderma, collagen vascular diseases or cardiac abnormalities; Rosacea and blood clotting problems; active bacterial or fungal infection; immunosuppression; scars less than 6 months old.

Are there any side effects or risks associated with skin needling? 
Side effects experienced with skin needling are very minimal and will usually subside within 24 hours. They include redness, stinging, itching, tightness and slight peeling.

Are the treatments administered in the same way?
Treatments are administered in a similar way using anaesthetic if required followed by needling and either finished with the application of Medik8 skincare products or left as a dry needling treatment.

What are the requirements?: You will need to obtain your Bloodborne Pathogen Certificate, please check with your county/state regulations (you can contact the Health Department in the county you plan to work in), we use www.cathymontie.com. Microneedling is currently not regulated in California technically due to the controversy about how deep you are penetrating the skin. If you are an esthetician and/or cosmetologist, you will not be operating under that license, we will give you advice on how to separate the two. You are not performing a "medical" procedure. Our innovative technique is unlike our competitors and we have a method that will qualify the procedure as a permanent makeup service. Every state/county will vary, we cannot give you legal advice however we can provide you information to help.
