Microneedling

Microneedling (or Skin Rolling) refers to penetrating skin with very small needles. The needles penetrate the skin to a desired depth in order to induce collagen production and increase transdermal absorption of products through the skin. The needles cause a micro injury that stimulates the body’s natural healing response thus inducing collagen production. Microneedling is a cost effective, non-invasive treatment that targets a wide range of skin concerns with long term visible results. Microneedling is a natural, safe and effective anti-aging solution.

How does microneedling compare to other conventional cosmetic treatments?

Microneedling is a safe and effective alternative to intense pulsed light (photofacials), microdermabrasion, chemical peels, laser resurfacing and cosmetic injectibles. Microneedling is a non-ablative treatment that leaves the epidermis intact. The tiny needle punctures disappear within hours maintaining our natural barrier for protection. The recovery time is minimal and the results are very natural looking.

What is involved in a microneedling treatment?

Microneedling is based on the principals of accupuncture and mesotherapy. Allegra performs holistic microneedling using a roller with very tiny needles ranging between 0.5mm and 1mm. The microneedle roller is rolled over the skin creating microscopic punctures in the epidermis and dermis that encourage collagen induction using the skin’s natural healing response. In addition, transdermal absorption is significantly increased permitting vital nutrients to be absorbed into the deeper layers of the skin known as a form of mesotherapy. A numbing cream is not necessary with holistic microneedling as there is minimal discomfort using a shorter needle length.

Allegra has two treatment options for holistic microneedling. The first type involves preparing skin for the procedure, the microneedling procedure and an application of vitamin and nutrient rich post care serum. Once a client becomes comfortable with this procedure, the treatment can be continued and performed at home for maintenance, if desired. The second type of treatment is consistent with the above procedure with the addition of a mesotherapy infusion treatment with naturopathic injection grade therapeutic solutions custom blended to your skin’s particular requirements.

You skin care specialist will create a custom rejuvenation plan that is ideal for your skin’s needs.

Why is microneedling so effective?

Microneedling does not damage the skin but causes a micro injury that the body recognizes and then repairs by removing old damaged collagen and replacing it with a new collagen matrix leading to a thicker, healthier skin over the course of several months. The natural healing process makes microneedling so effective and the results get better over time.

Is there any downtime?

Your skin will appear and feel like a mild suburn for 12-24 hours but will be visibly healed within 48 hours but the body will continue the healing process for several months which means the results will continue to improve over time as your body does the work for you.

What is required for post care?

For the first 48 hours, we recommend that you only use gentle, natural/organic products, clean with no chemicals, on your skin as it is very absorbent post microneedle procedure. We also advise you not to wear make up for the first 48 hours, always use a natural sunscreen (clean no chemicals) and avoid prolonged and direct exposure to sunlight for 5-7 days.

How many treatments will I need?

Although you will definitely see visible results after your first treatment, the effects of microneedling are cumulative and continuous as the skin rejuvenates naturally over several months. A series of 6-8 treatments spaced two weeks apart is recommended to start with maintenance treatments every 6-12 weeks.
