Automated Micro-Needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for treating the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and improvement of the skin’s overall appearance. It can also have a positive effect on the appearance of hyper-pigmentation and hypo-pigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks and create a fresher appearance or glow to the skin.
This can be enhanced by application of growth factor gels, kojic acid, vitamin C, and hyaluronic acid based skin rejuvenation treatments. For greater penetration you can also add-on a peel or dermaplaning treatment.
A package of 3 is recommended for best results and also is cost effective
During this procedure, the micro-needling pen is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to naturally produce collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in improvement of the appearance of softer wrinkles. Automated micro-needling also creates superficial micro-channels which can be used with topical gels, creams and serums to help improve the appearance of the epidermal layer of the skin. Semia Paris uses the most advanced medical-grade automated micro-needling device on the market.
Automated micro-needling devices move in a vertical direction for better precision when treating the skin. Unlike Automated Micro-needling the roller does not create a precise vertical action.
The lack of precision can contribute to greater discomfort and inconsistent effects to the skin.
Unlike lasers, Micro-needling breaks up pigment mechanically and stimulates the collagen formation without heat. Removing heat from the equation makes for a safer, more comfortable treatment with a very low complication rate. No heat also equals less downtime! Most Micro-needling patients are red for 24 hours or less. That advantage means you can get the procedure performed on a Friday and be back to normal for work on Monday.
A sterile cartridge containing 12 tiny micro-points is attached to the Micro-needling instrument. Your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of topical gel to your skin and select the appropriate treatment setting based on your unique needs. Next, in a single motion, the pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding until the entire treatment area has been covered. This process results in thousands of superficial microscopic channels throughout the entire treatment area.
Day of procedure: No lotions, makeup or other topical products on your face before your procedure. After your procedure I may apply a lipopeptide booster and growth factor booster
You may clean your face with a gentle cleanser and apply the skin care serum provided before bed.
Day 1: On the next day, you may clean your face as usual and apply makeup, lotions and other topical products as usual. Stay away from exfoliants or glycolic acids,vitamine A,retinol that are present is your skin care routine as these can make your skin very dry after the procedure. Be sure to use an approved SPF30 or greater sunscreen AVOID THE SUN !!
Days 2-7: Within two (2) days following your Micro-Needling procedure, you will notice skin dryness, flaking and maybe some eventual micro bruising
This is due to an increased turnover of skin cells. During this period, you may apply your regular skin moisturizer. Follow the instructions given to you by your esthetician.
If your medical professional used the micro-needling pen around the eyes, you may have a little micro bruising that may exist for three or four days. This can easily be covered with makeup.
Days later, your skin will start shedding. These are skin layers that would regularly shed a week later, but the Micro-Needling brings this skin to the surface sooner. During this temporary process, your skin will shed and be dry.
Days 7+: A week after the Micro-Needling procedure, most clients notice that their skin is smoother and more radiant.
