What is Microneedling?
AKA Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) used a device to create micro-wounds in the upper layer of the dermis layer of the skin. These micro-injuries trigger the bodies natural healing process, producing new collagen and elastin. The results improve; skins elasticity, texture, discoloration, sun damage, reduces scars, fine lines, wrinkles, big pores, scars, and stretch marks. Case studies also prove it helps grow back hair for hair loss sufferers.
How many Sessions do I need? How far apart?
Number of sessions vary from person to person. We take it a session at a time, typically we do 3 and reevaluate. The results are gradual. A client could be fine with 3 sessions or less, or could need 4-6+ sessions for maximum results. To de desired/best results have been achieved it is recommended to come once a year to every 6 months for a treatment for maintenance. Elsa guarantees 50% improvement of area, how many treatments it takes to get to 50% is unknown. Treatments are 4-8 weeks apart.
What’s it Like While I Heal?
It takes 30 days for our cells to turn over, every decade after 30 add a week. As we get older it takes longer for our cells to turn over and go through the different phases of healing. therefore you will see start your results in about 30 days. In the meantime skin with appear a little more dry than normal for the first couple weeks. For the first couple of days the skin will take on a pink/red color and feel as though you got a sunburn. You must stay out of the sun while you are healing to avoid hyperpigmentation and possible adverse effects. Applying the serums provided, sensitive skin moisturizer, witch hazel, and sensitive skin face wash is beneficial while you are healing. No facial makeup for at least 3 days post procedure is advised. (Mascara is ok). After care instructions and kit will be provided to you. You will also be given Elsa’s direct number that you may call or text anytime while you’re healing with any questions or concerns you may have.
