Microneedling or “Collagen Genesis Mesotherapy with microneedles” takes advantage of the use of special microneedles for the natural production of collagen and the insertion of beneficial active substances into the skin.
Scars, stretch marks, wrinkles, damaged skin with freckles and dehydrated skin have one thing in common: reduced collagen concentration. If our skin managed to form more collagen on its own, all these problems would disappear. Microneedling “forces” the body to produce increased amounts of collagen in the areas applied through the micro-injuries it causes in the affected areas. With the movement of the special head, a very large number of small channels are formed in the skin (invisible to the naked eye), each of which has a triple effect:
- Formation of new tissue through the triggering of the body’s healing mechanism (hemostasis-inflammation – proliferation – remodeling phase).
- Release of growth factors that promote healing by depositing healthy collagen and not “scar” collagen.
- Ensuring temporary “passage” for whatever mesotherapy material is considered appropriate for each problem
Most important of all, its action is not temporary.
The lesions do not reappear after a few months, it is a REGENERATION of the skin and dermis.
MICRO-NEEDLING + PRP
Especially the combination of Microneedling with PRP (Platelet-rich plasma) gives remarkable results. The “minor trauma” caused by Microneedling is the best way to activate the growth factors of PRP platelets, so the results are even more spectacular.
The procedure is very simple and painless, as a simple blood draw of a small amount of the patient’s blood (as for a check up) is enough to isolate, with the appropriate process, the necessary blood components for treatment.
Is the application painful? How long does it take? What is the recovery process?
Applications up to 0.75mm are very well tolerated without any skin preparation with anesthetic cream required. Depths greater than 0.75mm require the use of a special anesthetic cream 40-50’ prior to the application.
The duration of each session depends on the area to be treated, the extent of the damage and whether it is accompanied by additional protocols such as PRP or mesotherapy with special cocktails. A face / neck treatment takes about 30-40 ‘, while a stretch mark treatment usually takes less than 30’.
At the end of the treatment there is intense redness / hyperemia in the area of the application that can last from 1 hour to 48 hours depending on the intensity and depth of the application.
When will I see results?
Each Microneedling session rejuvenates the skin within 3-5 months. Nevertheless, the first results will appear a few weeks after the 1st session and are related to a noticeable improvement in the texture and tone of the skin.
