As with all treatments I have to confirm your suitability with a questionnaire and a patch test.
There are two types of Dermal Needling on offer here at On Point Beauty Bar, they are both very effective but work in two quite different ways!
The first and most common of the skin needling treatment is called Micro Needling, also referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT).
Having applied an anaesthetic to the areas in question, I use a sterile machine with single use cartridges to create thousands of tiny channels into different layers of the skin, depending on the condition you wish me to treat. There should be minimal discomfort and for most people minor down time, 1 to 2 days.
The theory behind the treatment is that these tiny puncture marks in the skin will cause the body to kick start its collagen healing process, thereby inducing new collagen and tighter, fresher, plumper and more youthful looking skin, whilst also being able to treat a number of minor skin complaints. This treatment has been proven to produce excellent results, comparable or better than laser skin therapy for the following conditions:
Wrinkles and fine lines,
The other type of skin needling treatment on offer here at On Point Beauty Bar is called Nano Needling.
Nano Needling does share some similarities with Micro Needling in that a cartridge is used in the machine to make channels into your skin.
The difference however is that Nano Needling uses much smaller, very shallow, ultra fine (less than 1/3rd the width of a human hair) mono crystalline silicone cone shapes to make channels BETWEEN the individual cells in your skin, rather than puncturing them. A professional, clinical product (which product is determined by the skin complaint) is then placed on the skin for extraordinary levels of absorption.
The purpose of Nano Needling is to improve the absorption rate of the special products into your skin, as normally absorption of these products is only 3-5 %! It also boosts collagen production in the outermost layers of the skin.
In addition, it is considered by most to be entirely painless and can be used on the most sensitive areas and has negligible down time.
Nano Needling is excellent for the following conditions:
Uneven skin tones,
Very fine lines,
Ageing and tired skin,
Combining with facials or microdermabrasion to super boost the effects.
