Micro-needling is the process of penetrating the skin with short, fine needles in order to encourage healing, decrease wrinkles and hyperpigmentation and promote radiance. The idea of micro-needling is to injure the skin using the small needles and therefore trigger collagen to respond to the injured parts. This will then allow the collagen to fill in lines and plump the skin as well as leaving an overall glow. Benefits of micro-needling Reduces fine lines and wrinkles Minimises appearance of large pores Reduces scarring and pigmentation Re-hydrates dull, tired skin Sun Damaged skin
Benefits of micro-needling
The skin of the area around the eyes is one of the most delicate of the body, which is why it can accumulate several unsightly manifestations such as bags, dark circles and emotional wrinkles. Bags are formed by a loss of tone in the muscle and the skin of the lower eyelid, which produces a sagging and thinning of the skin. The dark circles appear by the anatomical arrangement of the venous sinus of the area surrounding the eye, revealing the accumulation of blood and darkening the area. Its appearance is affected by the lack of iron, the loss of periorbital fat volume and the lack of sleep. Emotional wrinkles are due to internal factors such as age and skin type, and external factors such as sun or cold exposure
The three main manifestations are eye bags, dark circles and emotional wrinkles or crow’s feet.
Eye bags are formed by a loss of tone in the muscle and in the skin of the lower eyelid. The skin becomes flaccid and allows adipose tissue that is naturally around the eyes to move down and accumulate in the form of deposits (bags of fatty origin). They are also the result of fluid retention caused by changes in climate, hormonal factors, excessive salt intake, lack of sleep and rest, allergies, dermatitis and hereditary factors (bags of watery origin).
Dark circles are caused by stagnation of blood due to the slowing down of the circulation and are manifested in such a visible way by the low density of the skin in the orbicular area. The lower elasticity and greater fragility of the capillaries in this area leads to an increase in vascular congestion, which facilitates the leakage of blood and therefore its main component, hemoglobin. Dark circles are nothing more than an accumulation of hemoglobin and its degradation products, released from the corpuscles of blood that escape from small capillaries and explode in the skin. In this degradation process, hemoglobin is divided into its two main components, the heme group and the iron. The degradation of the heme group results in biliverdin (dark green-violet pigment) and bilirubin and iron that give rise to a dark brown to orange-red pigment. The consequence is an accumulation of iron and poorly soluble pigments and the consequent coloration of the area.
Emotional wrinkles are due to internal factors such as age, skin type and external factors such as exposure to cold or sun. With age decreases the production of collagen in the body, responsible for maintaining the shape of the skin and its firmness. Another mechanism that leads to the production of these wrinkles is the global destructuring of the skin that occurs with age due to the loss of cellular intercommunication of keratinocytes, which are capable of promoting the proliferation of fibroblasts and thereby, increase the production of collagen and the capacity of contraction of the fibres. Silica is involved in this mechanism since it stimulates the metabolism of keratinocytes.
The pigmentation of the skin, caused by the excess production of melanin, is a defence mechanism to protect itself against the free radicals produced by solar radiation. But there are cases where this pigmentation becomes anarchic. There is excessive production and irregular distribution of the melanin which results in the appearance of hyperpigmented spots, which are benign but unsightly, such as melasma and lentigo.
Face and neck wrinkles are unfortunately a natural result of growing older, and they can age our appearance dramatically. Therefore, it is no surprise that many people are seeking a procedure that will reduce or remove the wrinkles. The lines that appear on our face are a result of the skin losing its elasticity. This skin issue seems to especially be a problem for those with certain lifestyle habits such as smoking and regular UV exposure due to sunbathing or sunbed use.
The appearance of wrinkles is often noticeable as a result of skin sagging and deep lines. It can also be more locally characterised by “crow’s feet” at the corner of the eyes and “lip lines” around the lips. Some even notice that their skin develops the look of leather, which is a tell tale sign of age and lifestyle. To try and ease these signs of aging, numerous people are now undergoing the mesotherapy procedure.
How can Mesotherapy help?
The mesotherapy treatment for wrinkles is more used for prevention in younger people, aged 18 and upward, as opposed to actual wrinkle removal. However, if you do wish to undergo the procedure to reduce the appearance of formed wrinkles then you will require a number of consecutive treatments throughout the course of each year.
The actual mesotherapy process for wrinkle removal involves the usual injection of various amino acids, minerals and vitamins into the skin. The procedure itself is quick and aims to increase and maintain the skin’s elasticity and toned appearance. Not only this but the therapy is completely non-invasive and therefore leaves no scars or potential unpleasant side effects due to misplaced fillers or over-tightening of the skin (adverse effects of alternative cosmetic procedures).
If you do decide to undergo mesotherapy to remove your wrinkles, then you should be prepared to commit yourself to it in the long-term. You must have many mesotherapy sessions over a significant period of time
Acne is a skin condition that occurs when your hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. It often causes whiteheads, blackheads or pimples, and usually appears on the face, forehead, chest, upper back and shoulders. Acne is most common among teenagers, though it affects people of all ages.
Mirconeedling helps to address wrinkles, acne, scarring, and stretch marks. Microneedling increases the production of collagen and other healing factors by causing trauma to the skin.
While some results may be almost immediate, your best results usually won't be visible until four to six weeks after the procedure.
Micro-needling can be safely repeated every 4-6 weeks until you achieve the desired results. For collagen induction we recommend to start with 3 treatments, but with a minimum separation time of 4 to 6 weeks between treatments. For scar reduction an average of 3 to 6 treatments are recommended.
