How does micro needling /channeling work?
Micro-needling/channeling create multiple small injuries and the skin will respond with collagen production and new skin cells. Depending on the depth of the needle penetration, micro-needling/channeling can offer skin rejuvenation levels from the simple enhancement of product absorption to the clinical treatment of scars and wrinkles.
- Treatable Conditions:
- Lip wrinkles
- Skin Texture / Tone
- Pore appearance
- Fine lines
- Increase product absorption
- Superficial facial wrinkles
- Skin texture on the neck
- Acne Scarring / Trauma Scarring
- Melasma and Pigmentation
- Textural improvements
- Stretch marks
Treatment on the face is the primary location, but skin needling can successfully be used on any area of the body.
How deep does micro-needling/channeling go?
From very superficial penetration to deep dermal penetration, the professional applications have a wide range of potential to improve and correct skin problems without the use of lasers. At IMAGE Medi-Spa we have a few devices to choose from with penetration ranges that begin at cosmetic depth of 0.25mm to clinical treatment depths up to 2.5mm.
Is skin micro-needling/channeling painful?
At IMAGE Medi-Spa, superficial treatment levels are very tolerable with topical numbing gel (the lightest application requires no numbing at all) applied prior to the treatment. In the instance of aggressive treatments, our Registered Nurse will discuss the options for making the treatment the most comfortable for you.
