Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a non-invasive procedure that involves using a device with tiny, sterile needles to create micro-injuries on the skin’s surface. This process triggers the body’s natural healing response, which includes the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins responsible for keeping skin firm, elastic, and youthful.
At LANA, we use state-of-the-art microneedling devices to provide our clients with a safe and effective treatment. Our trained and experienced estheticians will carefully examine your skin and recommend a customized treatment plan to address your unique skincare concerns.
Microneedling procedure is quick and virtually painless, and can be performed on any area of the body, including the face, neck, hands, and décolleté. After the procedure, you may experience some mild redness and irritation, which will subside within a few hours to a day.
Benefits of Microneedling
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that can help to improve the overall appearance of your skin. The benefits of microneedling include:
- Stimulating collagen production: The tiny punctures created by the microneedling device stimulate the body’s natural healing response, which includes the production of collagen. Collagen is essential for keeping skin firm and elastic, and as we age, our collagen production decreases, leading to wrinkles and sagging skin. Microneedling can help to boost collagen production, resulting in smoother, firmer skin.
- Enhancing absorption of skincare products: The micro-channels created during microneedling allow skincare products to penetrate deeper into the skin, where they can be more effective. This means that your skincare products will be able to work more effectively, resulting in better results.
- Improving skin texture and tone: Microneedling can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars, as well as improve skin texture and tone. The procedure can also help to reduce the appearance of pores, making your skin look smoother and more even.
What to expect during the procedure
Before the procedure, your skincare professional will clean your skin and apply a numbing cream to ensure your comfort. The microneedling device will then be passed over your skin, creating tiny punctures in the surface. You may feel a slight prickling sensation, but the procedure is generally well-tolerated.
After the procedure, your skin may be slightly red and sensitive, but this should resolve within a few hours to a few days. You should avoid wearing makeup for the first 24 hours after the procedure and avoid exposure to the sun. Your skincare professional will provide you with instructions on how to care for your skin after the procedure.
In conclusion, microneedling is a safe and effective procedure that can help to improve the appearance of your skin.
