What is Micro Needling? Fast Facts on this Treatment for Scars, Wrinkles and Sagging Skin

St. Clair Shores Micro Needling ServiceIf you’re looking for noninvasive ways to cope with your acne scars, reduce fine lines and wrinkles or improve the appearance of stretch marks, you’ve probably come across the rapidly growing procedure called micro needling. There are a number of impressive studies that show the treatment, which uses small needles to prick the skin and jumpstart the body’s natural healing process, is an easy and efficient way to overcome a number of problematic skin conditions.

Many people have questions and concerns about micro needling and what it entails. Here are some fast facts about the skin treatment that’s redefining the way we improve the appearance of skin.

Who is Micro Needling Good For?

Wondering if the treatment is right for you? Here’s a list of the different reasons people look into micro needling therapy:
•Lift and tighten your skin
•Minimize skin discoloration
•Reduce the appearance of acne or other eligible scars
•Minimize fine lines and wrinkles
•Minimize pore size
•Improve the appearance of stretch marks.

How Does Micro Needling Work?

One of the most common questions that clients have is how a little pen has such a profound impact on wrinkles, scars and stretch marks. The concept is actually simple. A practitioner uses a micro needling tool, such as the Rejuvapen, to create microscopic pricks on the problematic area. The tiny needles on the pen make invisible perforations in the epidermis and the top layer of the dermis. Your body registers that it’s been injured and starts to heal itself. Collagen and elastin are rushed to the area, where they then rejuvenate your skin.

After the procedure, your skin will likely feel warm and tight, and it may appear as though you have a moderate sunburn. These side effects usually subside within a matter of hours, and most people see their skin return to normal in 24 hours. Your practitioner may be able to recommend a serum or other skin treatment to minimize any discomfort after your appointment.

Is Micro Needling Safe and Effective?

It seems simple, right? That’s because it is! The beauty of micro needling is that it simply spurs your body’s natural healing abilities. One study published in the Journal of Cutaneous and Aesthetic Surgery found that 80 percent of micro needling clients qualified the reduction of their facial scarring as “excellent” after two months of treatment. No adverse affects were noted in any of the people who participated!

This isn’t the only research that touts the benefits of micro needling. A study of almost 500 individuals conducted by Lutronic concluded that “the results obtained after the final [micro needling] treatment session continued to improve over time, and patient satisfaction with the procedure was very high with excellent compliance.” source:

What is Microneedling?

A medical device used for the purpose of breaking down old scar tissue and stimulate skin cells for proliferation. This multiplication results in the creation of new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibers, as well as improved blood supply.

How does it work?

The device glides gently along the skin, penetrating the layers of the skin closest to the surface, of a depth of up to 2mm to create numerous tiny needle wounds. The therapy encourages the body to respond through creation new collagen and elastin fibers. As the skin responds, it plumps and thickens, reducing the appearance of scars, wrinkles and fine lines.

What conditions does micro-needling treat?*
•Mild to moderate acne scarring
•Surgical scarring
•Fine lines and wrinkles
•Stretch marks
•Pore size and skin texture
•Keloid scarring

Will it be painful?

Numbing cream can be applied prior to the treatment which drastically minimizes or eliminates any pain altogether.

Are there any risks?

The tiny pricking channels close within one hour, and because the procedure is performed under clinical conditions, the likelihood of infection occurring is extremely low.

What are the side effects?

There are virtually no negative side effects from the procedure. None have been reported in over 150,000 procedures performed worldwide. source:

What is Micro-needling?

Micro-needling Macomb County

Micro-needling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that helps minimize the signs of aging. Micro-needling causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process. The micro-injuries trigger the release of cytokines and growth factors that lead to remodeling of collagen and elastin.

There are three phases to the wound repair process:

Phase I: Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.

Phase II: Proliferation. The wound is re-built with new granulation cells, as well as a temporary (type III) collagen and elastin, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.

Phase III: Remodeling. The wound has been replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels. The type III collagen in the newly formed tissue is replaced with stronger type I collagen, which can contract to create a tightening or “shrink wrap” effect on the skin.

How is micro-needling performed?

Micro-needling can be performed using a medical-grade, state-of-the-art micro-needling tool available only through medical professionals. The treatment typically takes about 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size and number of areas treated and the degree of treatment requested by the patient.

What are the benefits of micro-needling?

Helps reduce the signs of aging, improve the appearance of acne scars and rejuvenate aging skin. In one study of 60 patients with acne scarring, three micro-needling treatments resulted in a 31 percent improvement in skin texture, with no discoloration of the skin. Micro-needling was effective for all skin types.

Has minimal risk of infections or scarring.
Micro-needling doesn’t remove or damage the epidermis and doesn’t trigger the inflammatory pathway, meaning infections and scarring are unlikely.

First, just to clear any confusion when you hear the word ‘needling’, here’s what the technique is NOT:

  • Micro-needling is NOT an injection
  • Micro-needling is NOT a piercing
  • Micro-needling is NOT a DIY procedure

Micro-needling is a more sophisticated version of the Dermaroller – an excellent piece of medical technology. Both use a cluster of micro-fine needles, but unlike the Dermaroller, the micro-needling device allows the technician to vary the depth of the punctures without having to switch rollers. These super-tiny channels, invisible to the naked eye, do two things:

  1. Stimulate the body to produce new collagen and elastin, the skin’s connective tissue and the structural matrix responsible for smooth texture and elasticity
  2. Allow for active ingredients to penetrate exactly to the dermis where they can immediately get to work

When dealing with plumping, refining and smoothing the skin, it’s getting to the dermis that poses the greatest challenge. The deepest that most topical medications can penetrate to is the top layer of the epidermis.  (Sadly, UV light can penetrate all the way down to the dermis, which is why it is so damaging.) Coming from the other direction, any oral medication or supplement has to go through the digestive process before entering the bloodstream and getting to work. source;
