WHAT IS ? MICRONEEDLING?

Microneeedling is known as several names and several treatments incorporate microneedling i.e.

Collagen Induction Therapy, Dermarolling, Dermapen, Non-surgical Mesotherapy, 24k gold facial,

etc. This treatment is where micro needles are used to puncture the skin to a specific depth which

stimulates the bodys production of collagen and healing response, also known as micro traumas. Its

is estimated that microneedling can stimulate the treated area into producing up to 400% more

collagen. 

How does it Work?

Microneedling manipulates the body’s response into creating a fight or flight response. How though?? As there have been many punctures to the skin your body’s natural response is to heal the area. The thousands of tiny wounds subconscioulsy trick your body into believing it has had a massive trauma. Your body then sends extra oxygenated blood loaded with hormones and nutrients to heal the area at an accelerated rate, which creates extra collagen and elastin production as well as skin/cell rejuvenation.


What is it used to Treat?

This treatment is used to reduce fine lines/wrinkles, scars, blemishes, collagen production, age spots, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, enlarged pores, acne, hair loss, stretch marks, premature ageing skin, skin tightening.

Fine Lines/Wrinkles– Facial wrinkles and fine lines are mainly caused by the skins loss of collagen and elastin. Microneedling can improve this by stimulating the natural production of collagen and elastin. The accumulation of collagen and elastin being produced also thickens the skin.

Aging Skin– This is exactly the same as above. Microneedling can also help with the absorption of topical products making them more effective.

Scars– Microneedling is proven to reduce most types of scarring except keloid scarring. The types of scars most commonly treated include; post acne scarring, surgical scars & stretch marks. Using micronedling over a scar it has the ability to break up the scar tissue and stimulate new cell development, reducing the original scar/blemish.

Stretch Marks– Treating stretch marks are similar to treating scars but stretch marks have formed because of rapid growth forcing the skin to stretch. Though this treatment is effective, more treatments are needed, and this varies individually from person to person, up to 12 or more sessions may be needed to see effective results.

Hyperpigmentation– Microneedling helps reduce hyperpigmentation by shedding the top layer of skin aiding in the production of normal melanocyte cells that produce melanin. If you use a topical skin lightening serum, microneedling can improve its effectiveness dramatically by increasing the absorption into the skin.

Age Spots– Same as above

Rosacea– This is a skin disorder that can lead to a breakdown of collagen and produces facial redness. Microneedling can improve the appearance of rosacea by producing a significant amount of collagen. (This treatment is not suitable for all types of rosacea, so consultation is vitally important. Microneedling is not suitable for nodular or pustular rosacea)

Acne– Microneedling can be used with topical acne products to boost their absorption into the skin.

Enlarged Pores- These are normally either on the cheeks or the nose. Due to microneedling producing more collagen this slightly thickens the epidermis, hence reducing the appearance of enlarged pores. It is advised to have regular treatments and it is likely enlarged pores will return.

Who is it suitable for?

This treatment is suitable for all skin types, though for oily skin it is advised that a good de-greaser is used before treatment or a facial steam to draw out all the oils.
Some medications that cause bruising or increased bleeding such as ibuprofen may need to be considered before treatment.

How Long will it Last?

We recommend you have a course of 3-6 sessions, one session every 4-6 weeks until the results are at an optimum level. These final results can last up to 12 months.

Does it Hurt?

Admittedly even we were sceptical about this question at first but when asked our clients have said the treatment felt like a massage and they actually enjoyed it finding it very relaxing.

After Treatment

This is a non invasive procedure meaning you will need little down time. Your face may be slightly flushed for the rest of the day and although we try our hardest to avoid any blemishes the odd superficial bruise may occur which generally heals very quickly as your skin is going through this accelerated healing process caused by the microneedling.

  • Taking the following within 72 hours of treatment may increase your risk of bruising – Alcohol, Aspirin, Ibuprofen, St. John’s Wort, Fish oils, Gingko Biloba, Vitamins C and E.
  • Do cancel if you are at all unwell, even minor coughs and colds can increase your risk of post treatment complications.
  • Treatment cannot be administered if there is an active skin infection, including acne or cold sores.

So you`ve had your microneedling treatment what now ?

Thank you for choosing the Clybaun Clinic to have your treatment with. We endeavor to assure you have an excellent experience from start to finish and this aftercare advice has been devised from the frequently asked Do`s and Don’t`s of post treatment. Please understand this advice is to ensure you achieve optimum results and by not following your aftercare advice your desired treatment effects may be affected and you may incur unwanted complications. Should you have any concerns please contact a member of the team.

AFTERCARE ADVICE

Most people are able to continue with normal activities with immediate improvement in their appearance. Some will have some redness, pin prick marks, possibly swelling- particularly in the lips. Possibly bruising. Any swelling and bruising may be more apparent the day after treatment.

Make-up should not be worn for 24 hours’ and the skin should be kept clean, with normal cleansing. Do not use cleansing wipes which may irritate the skin.

Avoid extremes of heat or cold, sunbathing, vigorous exercise and massage (unless specifically asked to do so) on the day of treatment.

Avoid sun bathing and extremes of heat for 14 days as this has been shown to increase and prolong swelling.

You are unlikely to experience any pain after the trauma to your skin. You can take paracetamol if you feel the need to but avoid taking ibuprofen as it can cause swelling and bruising. The majority of any pain should settle after the first day and when the swelling starts to go down.

Bruising may take a few days to appear, arnica is often helpful to heal these bruises should you develop any but as your body is naturally going through accelerated healing these should disappear quickly.  It is advisable to avoid aspirin, ibuprofen and alcohol for 12-48 hours after treatment. Tenderness should settle as swelling goes down.  

Athletes should be aware some ingredients in the product may show a positive in ‘anti-dope tests’

Microneedling is a quick and safe procedure which has very little impact on usual activity on the day of treatment. To allow the microneedling to work optimally in the skin, the following precautions are usually suggested:

  • No touching or rubbing of the injected area for 6 hours after treatment.
  • No facials or massage for 72 hours.
  • Avoid skin irritants such as acids, vitamin A, C or E, Gingko Biloba, Garlic, fish oils, St. Johns Wort for 72 hours. It would be best to cleanse with a non-perfumed, antibacterial face wash.
  • No strenuous exercise for 24 hours after treatment.
  • Avoid excess heat environments, hot showers, sauna, steam room etc for 72 hours.
  • Keep your head upright for at least 4+ hours — no lying down or bending forward.
  • Avoid headwear across the forehead or injection sites.
  • Avoid alcohol, ibuprofen or medically necessary blood thinning medication (unless doctor advised) 24 hours before and after the treatment to prevent bruising.
  1. How soon after microneedling can I go back to my normal exercise regime?

Normal daily activity can be resumed immediately following treatment. Light exercise can be performed after 6 hours but it is recommended that strenuous activities are avoided for 24+ hours.

After 4 hours you may perform light exercise such as:

  • Walking

It is recommended that you wait 24+ hours before attempting any strenuous exercise, including:

  • Weight training
  • Cross training
  • Long distance running
  • Yoga (positions where the body is inverted)
  1. Are there any possible side effects to microneedling?

In most cases there will be no side effects to a microneedling treatment of. However, because everybody’s physiology is different, people can be affected in different ways. A small minority of people reported the following symptoms.

  • Bruising / redness — For the majority of patients, the area of injection will appear no different. For a small minority, some minor bruising may occur.
  • Bumps / swelling — A few minutes after treatment small bumps may be visible on the skin. These will disappear within a few hours.
  • Headache — True microneedling allergies are exceedingly rare. Temporary skin tenderness is the most commonly reported symptom following microneedling, though the numbers of patients who report tenderness is very small compared with the amount of treatments performed. Any tenderness can be treated with usual painkillers but not ibuprofen.
  • Infection — Not following the above instructions in section 1. can lead to skin, muscle or blood infections.

 

Although emergencies involving microneedling are rare all clients have access to our 24 hour phone number (07809902432) should an emergency arise.

  1. How soon can I drink alcohol after microneedling?

We advise no alcohol 24 hours before and after treatment. This is because alcohol can thin the blood much like an aspirin and result in bruising.

  1. Am I allowed to touch/wash my face after having microneedling?

No. Your face will not feel overly sore or tender but your skin will need 72 hours to properly close the holes made by the injections or you risk causing infection. You can continue your normal skin care routine but no touching or rubbing of the injected area for 6 hours after treatment. No facials or massage for 72 hours. Avoid skin irritants such as acids, vitamin A, C or E, Gingko Biloba, Garlic, fish oils, St. Johns Wort for 72 hours. It would be best to cleanse with a non-perfumed, antibacterial face wash. Avoid excess heat environments, hot showers, sauna, steam room etc for 72 hours. Try to keep your head upright for at least 4+ hours — no lying down or bending forward. Avoid headwear across the forehead or injection sites.

  1. Are  microneedling injections long lasting?

Although some people experience longer lasting results, scientific evidence shows that the effect of microneedling can last up to 12 months. This can be affected by your lifestyle choices (diet, smoking, exercise etc), muscle/skin integrity and metabolism. 

  1. Can I keep having microneedling?

Yes. Unless a medical complication arises you can continue your microneedling schedule and maintain your youthful appearance. 

  1. What happens when microneedling wears off?

Once microneedling wears off, your skin may return to its prior state (not scars or stretch marks) it is advisable to return to the clinic when you would like further treatments.  

  1. Can I wear make-up after my microneedling treatment?

Yes. Ideally, avoid make up for as long as possible to stop the risk of infection (24 hours). 

  1. What if my microneedling results are not what I expected?

Yes. Microneedling treatments are not affected by changes in altitude or cabin pressure so flying will have no adverse effects.

  1. Can I sleep after microneedling?

Microneedling should have little impact on usual day-to-day activity and will not affect your sleeping patterns. Although, we would advise to maybe use a fresh pillow case to ensure good hygiene while you skin is healing. 

  1. How soon after microneedling can I have a facial?

To allow the microneedling to settle in and begin working, it is recommended that you do not rub the treatment area for up to 6 hours after the procedure. This includes the gentle rubbing associated with a facial treatment. We advise not having a facial within 72 hours post-procedure.
