Skin Needling. What is it?
-Dry Needling-

Dry needling of the skin is a cutting edge treatment that can rejuvenate skin and treat scars without the expense and potential side effects of lasers. Darker skin types are more prone to side effects from lasers and are usually ideal candidates for needling.

Micro needling has traditionally been performed using a roller with tiny needles imbedded in it. But I use a digital machine that uses all disposable needles.
My state of the art digital permanent makeup device is specifically for the needling treatments. Unlike the roller, which re-uses the same needles for several treatments on an individual, the digital machine uses disposable, sterile needle cartridges for each client and each treatment. It is also less traumatic to the skin.

How does it work?
Using the ultimate technology in topical, non-invasive anti-aging treatments, small needles are inserted lightly into the dermis, causing your own wound healing system to stimulate collagen production in your skin. The needles cause micro-trauma and micro –inflammation. Your body responds by sending blood to the area for healing. Blood platelets release clotting factors and essential growth factors. Fibroblasts make and deposit new extracellular matrix and collagen and new elastin. As your skin repairs itself, new collagen builds up in the dermis, just below the surface. The wrinkles, lines, depressed scars or tethered scar tissue plump up and release without the use of anything artificial (i.e. fillers, collagen substitutes) and can be repeated gradually as needed for additional new collagen.
This process is often referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy.

What are some of the applications for Needling Therapy?
· Wrinkle treatment: Fine lines and deeper wrinkles can be diminished
· Brown spots
· Indented scars: Decrease the depth of pitted, depressed, or shallow scars caused by acne, chicken pox, surgeries or trauma
· Surgical Scars: Raised or hypertrophic scars can become smoother with needling treatments that flatten the elevated scar tissue.
· Scar Relaxation: Burns and accidents can create fibrous bands of scar tissue that can contract and create limited flexibility. Needling can break down the contracted tissue to increase mobility and flexibility.
· Great for Men and Women!

What are the benefits of Needling versus other methods such as laser treatments?
· The Epidermis remains intact: the outer layer, or epidermis, is not removed and is left intact. The healthy skin and blood vessels in between the lines, wrinkles and scars is preserved. This improves healing, collagen stimulation and long-term results. Safe for people with a thinner epidermis due to skin type, age and sun damage.
· Less worry about Pigmentation changes: Because of less trauma to the epidermis, unlike lasers and strong chemical peels, there is less risk of permanent structural damage such as post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation (skin darkening) or de-pigmenting (white spots or color loss).
· Fast healing and less downtime: Due to the precise control and minimal trauma , the healing is very rapid with a “downtime” of just a few days (3-5) vs. up to several weeks with more invasive and aggressive treatments. Makeup can be worn the next day!
· Fewer side effects: Due to the largely intact epidermis and controlled treatment areas, there are no effects such as thinning of the epidermis, heightened skin sensitivity and very little , if any, risk of infection, or allergic reaction.
· Multiple or ongoing treatments are possible: Other resurfacing methods cannot be repeated indefinitely because they eventually thin the skin and can create extreme photosensitivity. Needling, however, can be repeated as the dermis in the treated areas becomes thicker, not thinner. It can also be used in delicate areas such as under and around the eyes to treat “Crow’s Feet” lines, thin and crepey skin and can even help the appearance of dark circles.

Following a thorough, personalized consultation, we will discuss your particular aging, scar or overall skin rejuvenation concerns.

What can you expect immediately after the treatment?
Immediately following your skin needling , you can expect the needled areas to be extremely red and maybe slightly warm like a sunburn. This generally lasts for about 24 hours. By the day after the treatment any areas of remaining minor redness can be concealed using a mineral based concealer or foundation.
The areas treated with the needling process will get slightly crusty for about 3-4 ( wrinkles appear as slight scratches in the surface of the skin)and then a mild exfoliation of the area occurs. The initial few days of redness will then turn to light pink (think of skin after a scab has first come off) and will then continue to fade.

How many treatments will you need?
Deep wrinkles, pitted scarring and scar relaxation can require up to 3 treatments scheduled several weeks up to several months apart .
In some cases, hypo-pigmented (white) scars can be recolored naturally using the needling procedure. The amount of time between treatments depends upon your specific situation and the purpose of the needling.
Improvement may be seen as soon as a few weeks after a procedure. Deeper healing of the skin continues for several months as your skin restores and rebuilds its own collagen and elastin. Skin will continue to plump and tighten as the collagen is deposited.
Medium to deep wrinkles and acne scars can require 3 or more treatments for optimum results.
Results can be enhanced and maintained when post-treatment skin products are used at home. Needling can be combined with other treatments such as Botox, injectable fillers and traditional cosmetic surgical procedures.

Is there any discomfort during the procedure?
We use topical anesthetic “cocktails” of multiple ingredients to numb the skin prior to the needling. There is very minimal , if any, discomfort.

What is the cost of Skin Needling?
Fees for skin needling are charged based on the size of the area to be treated.
We break the facial area into “Zones”. Fees are charged per zone.
We can also include areas such as neck, chest, backs of the hands – any area of the body where you have wrinkles/skin aging or scarring issues.
See the Chart below .
For scars, both surgical and traumatic, fees will be quoted on a case-by-case basis following your complimentary consultation.
