What is micro-needling?

The insertion of very short needles into the skin for the purpose of rejuvenation. This can be done using a micro-needling pen (most effective), roller, or derma-stamp. There are many ways of doing this treatment but today we utilize micro-needling pens because they are superior to older manual devices. The premise is simple – create a small wound and the skin will respond with collagen production and new skin cells. Depending on the depth of the needle penetration, this can offer skin rejuvenation levels from the enhancement of product absorption to the clinical treatment of scars and wrinkles.

Micro-Needling is also called skin needling, collagen induction therapy (CIT), and percutaneous collagen induction (PCI). Almost anyone can have the procedure performed as long as they don’t have any active infections, lesions, or any known wound healing issues.

Micro-Needling can:

Improve acne scarring

Reduce fine lines & wrinkles

Shrink pores

Minimize dark spots

Improve skin texture & elasticity

Increase production of collagen & elastin

3000% more product absorption


What is nano-needling?

Both the Nano and Micro-Needling treatments use a pen-like device that oscillates a tip up and down to stimulate a skin reaction. They both induce cell turnover, serum infusion and provoke the healing process that results in skin transformation.

Nano-needling on the other hand works a little differently. It does use the same type of oscillating motion to treat the skin but the cartridge encompasses 81 silicone tips. These microscopic hair-like cones separate the cells within the epidermis to allow active products to be pushed into the skin. Nano-needling only affects the epidermis, treating within the upper .15 mm of the skin. The benefits of this serum infusion treatment include pigmentation reduction, increased cell turnover, skin rejuvenation, and an immediate glow with no downtime. This treatment can be done weekly to exfoliate the skin.

Nano-Needling allows up to 97% product absorption. This treatment uses your body’s own repair process to combat wrinkles, acne hyperpigmentation, fine lines, stretch marks, and skin blemishes. If you are concerned about fine lines & wrinkles, swelling, or sagging skin, then nano-needling is for you. If your skincare concerns include deep wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, or deep acne scars, then micro-needling would be the best option.

How many treatments?

This varies from person to person and depends on the type of problem you have. Generally, longstanding chronic problems take longer to resolve, and more recent problems respond quicker. Having said that, it also depends on your underlying state of health. Some people look healthy, but really are quite depleted. Others have illnesses, but strong underlying constitutions. It would be great if one or two treatments were all that was needed, and at times it is.

The frequency of Micro-Needling and Nano-Needling treatments are not the same as with regular acupuncture treatments. Micro-Needling can be performed once a month. After only 4-6 treatments, once per month, patients notice improvements that last for years.

Nano-Needling can be performed once a week. The benefits of this serum infusion treatment include pigmentation reduction, increased cell turnover, skin rejuvenation, and an immediate glow with NO downtime. This treatment can also be done in a weekly series of 1 a week for 6 weeks.
