Microneedling is a popular treatment in staying youthful. It’s a procedure that uses fine needles to puncture the skin and create a controlled skin injury in order to rejuvenate skin. It’s also called skin needling, collagen induction therapy (CIT), and percutaneous collagen induction (PCI).
During the procedure, a topical numbing cream is applied and then a mechanical derma pen ( we do not use derma rollers) is used to insert tiny needles into the skin to cause microinjuries or punctures. The idea is that the damage caused by the needles encourages your body to send healing agents (elastin and collagen) to the cuts to repair them. By making tiny columns of trauma in the dermis, the body is forced to make new collagen to fill them in and heal them. This new collagen makes skin look and feel slicker, tighter, and more youthful.
Nano-needling stimulates collagen production in the skin by safely infusing active ingredients from your serum through tiny nano-channels. This is less invasive with no pain or down time nor a requirement of numbing cream and allows up to 97% product absorption.
Why Train In Micro and Nano Needling?
- Microneedling is used to treat and improve conditions like acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, skin texture, pore size, brown spots, stretch marks, and pigment issues.
- Almost anyone can have the procedure performed as long as they do not have any active infections, lesions, or any known wound healing problems.
- Risks involved with receiving microneedling are lower than many other skin treatments, such as chemical peels or light/laser therapies. The procedure is more effective than more aggressive treatments for acne scarring as well as more affordable for clients.
- There is no downtime with nanoneedling and currently not many estheticians offer this treatment.
- You can charge between £90- £180 per session (depending on your location)
