Microneedling, all you need to knowPaul Lorho
Over time, the skin produces less collagen and hyaluronic acid, two substances fundamental to the tone of the epidermis. This causes the loss of firmness of the skin and the appearance of wrinkles. A new technique is starting to make a lot of talk about it: the Microneedling is in French Micro Needling.
This non-invasive procedure is effective in reducing the signs of aging, gaining firmness and reviving the radiance of the skin.
Practitioners also use this treatment to correct certain imperfections such as acne sequelae, dilated pores and stretch marks.
Microneedling is a technique that consists of practicing on a targeted area micro-perforations using a small roller (roller / derma roller or meso roller) with fine needles, very short.
The healing of these micro-perforations will result in a cellular renewal stimulating the elastin and collagen production.
This process also has the effect of creating small channels that facilitate the penetration of active ingredients to the deeper layers of the dermis.
Who is this treatment for?
For anyone with a dull skin complexion, sagging skin, dilated pores, superficial acne scars, stretch marks, wrinkles …
Conduct of the session
The beautician carefully cleans and disinfects the area to be treated in order to avoid the penetration of bacteria into the dermis during puncture of the pimples. Then, it makes several multidirectional passages provided with a disposable roller.
The session lasts between 15 and 20 minutes. It ends with a cleansing of the treated area with a special wipe and the application of a regenerating treatment.
