Skin needling is a treatment using hundreds of fine micro-needles to make tiny channels into the skin to stimulate collagen production. This process uses sterile needles that cause the body's natural healing response to kick in from "controlled trauma". During this process the body aims to repair these tiny channels made by stimulating collagen and elastin in high quantities.
At Mirra Skin & Aesthetic Clinic, we infuse organic stem cells into the micro-channels made whilst performing the treatment. This provides the skin with hydration, a plumping effect and result in a faster healing time and boost collagen stimulation far beyond what the body can naturally stimulate alone from needling.
Using the latest technology electric pen needling device for precision needling and deeper penetration. Penetrating up to a maximum of 3mm into the skin with a choice of 12 or 36 fine tip needles, over 1 square cm. With a three speed setting of 114-342 needles penetrating into the skin per second to provide patients with the maximum benefits in less sessions then traditional skin needling treatments.
This treatment is similar to PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma or the Vampire Facial) but vegan friendly and does not use animal stem-cells. Using pure stem-cells derived from organic peas in a hydrating Hyaluronic Acid base.
The benefits of needling with organic stem cells is to boost the skins healing time, they act for longer in the skin, repair damaged DNA from replicating, boost the collagen production quantity, plump and hydrate the skin post treatment! Our skin can only stimulate a certain amount of collagen naturally post treatment. However, by using stem-cells we can extend that period by providing the skin with energy and DNA repairing proteins for a longer result.
The patient will have topical numbing cream applied to the treatment area prior to the treatment for patient comfort. During the treatment patients can experience the vibration from the pen device however not the needles themselves.
There are some areas of the face that are more sensitive than other areas such as the forehead, cheek bones and jaw line. This is usually due to the area not having much cushion from fatty deposits.
The numbing sensation from the numbing cream will wear off usually after 2-4 hours post treatment.
The patient will experience some erythema or redness and possible mild swelling and this can last for 24-48 hours.
Some patients can experience small blood spot bruises in some areas of the face and this usually resolves after 48 hours.
It is recommended to not wear any makeup during this 48 hour period and to keep out of the sun for the healing phase.
Day 2-7 is the remodelling phase where the healing response is taking place and collagen is being produced. During this time, some initial results of skin tightening, plumping and even skin tone can be seen. However, the results continue to improve for the next 3-4 weeks. This is when the treatment should then be repeated. Depending on the patient's main concerns, 4-8 treatments can be recommended.
