Skin needling is also called micro-needling therapy or collagen induction therapy. It is a minimally-invasive non-surgical and nonablative procedure for facial rejuvenation that involves the use of a micro-needling device to create controlled skin injury.

As each fine needle punctures the skin, it creates a channel or micro-wound. The controlled injury triggers the body to fill these micro-wounds by producing new collagen and elastin in the papillary dermis. In addition, new capillaries are formed. This neovascularisation and neocollagenesis following treatment leads to reduction of scars and skin rejuvenation, i.e., improved skin texture, firmness and hydration.

When Nettie told me about this I immediately wanted to try it. I have had two large brown sun spots on my face for years. One on each side. Also a large crease across my forehead as well as wrinkles around my face. I was told what to prepare for and how bad it would look. Nettie applied topical and I can honestly say on a scale of 1-10 the procedure was a 2 and the next 5 days; there was hardly any pain. I was pleasantly surprised after 5-6 days all redness was gone…but even more surprised, my brown spots were almost all gone!!! My wrinkles looked so much better!!! My skin felt young and soft for the first time in years!!! I am going back next week for my second treatment which should do it!! It’s true!! Your own skin produces your own Collagen to fill in the wrinkles. I love my brown age spots gone!!!! Thanks Nettie!

  • Improved Depressed Acne Scarring
  • Fill old Surgical Scars
  • Improve Chicken Pox Scars

Stretch Marks

Stretch marks are the result of the deeper collagen layers of the skin stretching beyond its normal limits.  Skin Needling has been a more effective way to minimize the appearance of the stretch marks, where lasers and other creams have very little positive results…the dermal damage that is performed to the area will allow your own collagen, elastin and your natural melanocytes to begin the repair by improving the blood supply to the treated area.   Though the stretch mark will never return to it’s normal state..there will be significant improvement and the healing period (repair) will continue up to a year. This procedure can be performed as often as every 6 weeks…and all skin types are candidates.

 

WE ONLY DO SMALL AREAS OF STRETCH MARKS –  NO LARGER THAN AREA SHOWN BELOW!

Acne Scar Reduction

Skin Needling creates a softer skin texture and softens the fibrous bands to give more flexibility in movement and a more natural blended appearance. Skin Needling for scars and wrinkles has been popular in other countries and its use for scar tissue is well known and utilized by plastic surgeons in the United States, Europe, Canada an South Africa.

This treatment is ideal for Acne Scarring.

The Skin Needling effect can stimulate natural Melanin (skin color) into damaged areas such as, Stretch marks, Sun spots and Laser scarring.

After Care Needling Instructions

After your treatment you will be red. This is normal and to be expected. You may also have a little bit of swelling in some areas. A few days after the treatment your skin may be dry and some wrinkles may look worse. This is normal as the new cells regenerate in the dermis. Generally people notice a tightening and a more even tone to their skin in a week or two. The results continue to build for up to 6 months.

Remember, we are building collagen, minimizing wrinkles and sun damage from the inside out which takes time!! Please be patient and realistic with the natural healing process. To get the most amazing results expect to do a few treatments. The wrinkles and sun damage didn’t get there over night! Also remember as we get older, we produce less collagen. And we are making new cells!

After the treatment please follow these instructions:

  • Don’t wash your face or apply anything to your skin for 4 hours.
  • Stay out of the sun! You will not have SPF on your skin right after treatment.
  • After 4 hours, wash your skin with cool water and a gentle cleanser. (Provided)
  • Then apply a very light moisturizer or Hyaluronic acid gel.

I will send you home with one week of after care product. I prefer IMAGE product for Moisturizer and Hyaluronic Acid Gel. (Please contact Cori Simons 208-850-1823 to order this awesome product) You just made a investment on your face…don’t you want to use the best product?

The next morning rinse your skin with cool water and apply a light moisturizer and a SPF 30 or higher. Do this each day for 2 weeks.

YOU MAY USE MINERAL MAKEUP on day two, As long as it is NEW, to prevent infection!

Skin Needling for scars and wrinkles has been popular in other countries and its use for scar tissue is well know and utilized by plastic surgeons in the United States, Europe, Canada and South America.

Considering Laser and Fillers and Chemical Peels are thousands of dollars, this treatment is much more cost effective. And the bonus is that your own body is filling in your own collagen. A few days of healing time makes Micro Needling a more desirable alternative.

All areas of the face, neck and body can be treated and may last from 2-5 years. Depending on your skin and age.
