Microneedling: beautifying the skin and hair
Microneedling is one of the newest techniques in aesthetic medicine.
Microneedling is a safe, non-surgical anti-aging treatment that is becoming increasingly popular for rejuvenating all types of skin and hair.
Also known as inductive collagen therapy, microneedling involves micropitting specific areas to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin to redensify the skin through the healing process and improve its quality and radiance.
We use the painless needle injector U 225 which is the two advanced microneedling technique.

What is microneedling?
With microneedling it is possible to stimulate collagen production by pricking the existing skin. The new skin produced is smoother, firmer and more toned. Collagen is a protein produced naturally by the body that has a structural role in the skin.
The treatment session is painless thanks to the use of an anesthetic cream and a pain relief system used during all our treatments performed in the medical office.

will apply topical lidocaine to anesthetize the skin and ensure a comfortable and painless treatment. Next, a thin layer of topical gel is applied and the U 225 injector gun is gently applied against the skin and different layers of the dermis while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area is covered.
The treatment allows for micro perforations at different depths to stimulate the production of elastin and collagen and fight against skin aging.
A cytocare solution containing hyaluronic acid, folic acid, vitamins B1, B3, B4, B5, B12 is then applied to the treated areas.
The procedure lasts 30 to 45 minutes depending on the size of the treated area.
The skin is sensitive for a few days but there is no pain. It is advisable to avoid sun exposure and to apply a moisturizing and soothing cream. The results of the treatment are visible after a few days.
Patients notice an immediate improvement in skin quality. Visible changes in the skin develop after 15 days. Results can continue to improve for up to 6 months after a treatment as collagen production continues.
There is no social eviction after microneedling.
It is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 3 to 4 treatments spaced approximately two weeks apart.
