Micro-Needling: Translation, Please…

Wondering what “Micro-Needling” is? Here’s what you need to know: Micro-Needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy) treats fine lines, wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation, acne scars, stretch marks and improves your skin’s texture, tone and color. Micro-needling creates softer, and younger skin with minimal cost and downtime compared to invasive lasers.

HOW IS THE PROCEDURE PERFORMED?
The application of numbing cream provides comfort before each treatment. Twelve tiny, sterile needles create controlled micro-injuries to the skin to stimulate collagen production. Each treatment is customized by selecting the appropriate needle depth for each client’s unique and specific skin care needs. The procedure creates micro-channels to allow for increased penetration of anti-aging serums, peptides or creams into deeper areas of the skin.

WHAT WILL I LOOK LIKE AFTER THE TREATMENT?
Your skin appears as if you have a sunburn and it may feel hot and tight. Your face may look a little red the following morning in which a tinted moisturizer may be applied. At Vasu Skin Solutions, we recommend applying Intellishade by Revision Skincare (http://www.revisionskincare.com/products/intellishade-broad-spectrum-spf-45). Typically, the redness subsides within 48 hours. You may have some flaking on day 3.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED?
3-4 treatments are recommended spaced 6 weeks apart for optimal results. Clients may benefit from annual maintenance with one treatment.

WHAT IS THE ECLIPSE MICRO-PEN?What is the Eclipse MicroPen?
The Eclipse MicroPen (www.eclipsemicropen.com) is Vasu’s trademarked device for performing Micro-Needling treatments. The Eclipse MicroPen is state-of-the-art, fast and extremely sterile offering single use 12 gauge tips.

WHY CHOOSE MICRONEEDLING?
Micro-needling is safe, predictable and allows your skin to naturally repair itself by inducing your body to produce more collagen in the treated area. Micro-needling is non-ablative and keeps the epidermis intact which reduces the risk of scarring, and unwanted pigment change. Micro-Needling is for most skin types and is a safe treatment during the summer. Micro-needling is not recommended for clients with active acne. Both men and women benefit from this treatment!
