Micro needling using CosmoPen is an advanced medical micro needling device for professional skin needling and is considered to be one of the safest skin treatment procedures.
Micro needling with CosmoPen is a non-invasive, non-injectable skin treatment that targets different range of skin concerns. It is an aesthetic medical procedure that induce production of collagen. Based on your skin, condition microscopic needles penetrates into the skin between 0.25 mm to 2.5 mm. CosmoPen tiny punctures the skin within the dermis and epidermis, in order to create controlled skin injury. This controlled injury encourages the skin to heal naturally which leads to increased production of collagen and elastin. Further, this leads to improved skin texture, firmness and hydration.
THE MICRONEEDLING PROCEDURE
THE VAMPIRE FACIAL
Made popular by Kim Kardashian, the “Vampire Facial” uses PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) to enhance microneedling treatment results. Our technician draws a small vial of blood from the patients arm then places it in a centrifuge which separates the red and white blood cells. The resulting Plasma is rich in anti-aging properties such as growth factors and collagen stimulators. The liquid plasma is placed topically on the skin during the microneedling process, infusing it into deep layers of the dermis where it can activate it’s skin boosting potential best.
MICRONEEDLING + SKIN BOOSTERS
Whenever we can generate openings in the skin we have an opportunity for topical solutions to penetrate more readily through the channels created. Our clinic offers microneedling treatments that offer the option of adding Skin Boosters to your session. Skin Boosters come in a variety of solutions depending on your specific concern. Many contain Cytokines, Coenzymes, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals and other key ingredients to enhance your results. These solutions are applied topically and with the penetrating effect of the needling, the solution is infused into the skin where it can work best.
MICRONEEDLING: WHY IT WORKS.
Widely considered to be the alternative to Fractional Laser, IPL and Chemical Peels, COSMOPen is a state-of-the-art medical grade high speed micro-needling System. It offers the same results as a fractional laser without pain, downtime, expense, and thermal damage. Microneedling is a form of Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT). The idea behind CIT is similar to that of many other non-surgical skin-tightening procedures in that it aims to create a controlled injury underneath the skin’s surface, thereby inducing the body to respond through the formation of new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibers as well as new capillaries for an improved blood supply in the treated area. The skin plumps and thickens in response to this stimulus, ultimately reducing the appearance of scars, and fine lines and other skin texture changes
FACE & BODY BENEFITS
Microneedling is an effective treatment for not only anti-aging and scars but for acne and more.
Micro-channels encourage collagen and elastic production. This increases skins firmness as well as reduces texture. Fine lines and wrinkles become smoother and less defined.
Micro injuries in the skin triggers skin around pores to heal itself and tighten. Essentially the process “fills in” pores by increasing skin density and firmness in the area.
Microneedling essentially reprograms skin by triggering an expedited healing process. This reduces acne inflammation as well as residual scarring and pore size. The epidermis is renewed and acne breakouts are greatly reduced.
Several types of scars can be softened and reduced. Microneedling treats acne scars, surgical scars, hypertrophic (raised scars) and stretchmarks.
Microneedling provides a deep resurfacing effect. This removes the outer layers of the skin and produces a new youthful dermis with reduced pigment and a more even tone.
Stretchmarks can form anywhere on the body. Microneedling reduces the appearance of both white (healed) and forming stretchmarks (red).
Frequently Asked Questions:
One of the benefits of micro needling is reduced risk of hyperpigmentation and scaring, so it can be used on all skin types; therefore it is safe on dark skin.
You may experience redness for 12 to 48 hours after the treatment, but in general downtime is minimal and you can continue with your regular activities after the treatment.
It is very common to see the results right after the first treatment of micro needling. More significant results will start occurring after 2 to 3 treatments. Production of collagen takes place over time, so as the time pass by; the skin will continue to improve.
During the treatment with a shorter needle you will feel a tickling sensation, and for those undergoing treatments with depth penetration of 2.5 mm we recommend numbing cream.
It’s recommended to wait at least 4 days after filler/botox injections so that any post treatment bruising from those procedures can settle*. Or have your COSMOPen treatment 1 or 2 days before having fillers injected.
Microneedling can be used on the face as well as any area on the body where stretchmarks, scars or pigmentation is present.
