Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) involves using fine needles to create hundreds of tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of skin.
But this minimally invasive treatment is virtually painless and incredibly effective.
The micro-injuries you create stimulates the body’s natural wound healing processes, resulting in cell turnover and increased collagen and elastin production
What conditions does micro-needling treat?
The skin is cleaned and numbing cream may be applied to lessen discomfort. After the treatment, soothing Vitamin-C serum or Hyaluronic acid are used to hydrate, heal and protect the skin.
How will I look after treatment?
Most people will experience mild redness and possibly some swelling. The same way you may feel with mild sunburn. Effects may last for 24-48 hours and there may be pinpoint bleeding and/or bruising. Within several days to several weeks you will notice a smoother, brighter, and more radiant appearance, however, the full effects of the treatment do not appear until several months later.
Aftercare is as important as the treatment itself.
Direct sun exposure should be avoided for about a week after each procedure. If you are consistently exposing your skin to direct sunlight, use sunscreen.
No ibuprofen, no tanning, no working out
What is the down time like?
The inflammatory reaction of the skin is extremely short and fades significantly within hours from redness to pinkish that may last for 12 to 48 hours. In order to reduce visible redness, we recommend hyaluronic acid after the procedure, and to protect the skin with zinc based sunblock. The use of mineral makeup may be used after procedure.
What effects does micro-needling have on the skin? Improves the appearance of stretch marks
Numbing cream can be applied prior to the treatment which drastically minimizes or eliminates any pain altogether.
Are there any risks?
The tiny pricking channels close within one hour, and because the procedure is performed under clinical conditions, the likelihood of infection occurring is extremely low.
How many treatments do I need and how often?
Micro-needling can be safely repeated every 4-6 weeks until you achieve the desired results. For collagen induction we recommend to start with 3 treatments, but with a minimum separation time of 4 to 6 weeks between treatments. For scar reduction an average of 3 to 6 treatments are recommended. The number of treatments required will depend on how each individual responds to the treatments, and the extent of the damage. Micro-needling can be used on all skin parts of the body (neck, décolleté, arms, legs, etc). Most people will begin to see results after the very first appointment.
Can micro-needling be performed for all skin types and colors?
Absolutely. It’s safe and effective for all types and colors of skin. There is no risk of post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation.
What are the side effects?
There are virtually no negative side effects from the procedure. None of been reported in over 150,000 procedures performed worldwide.
How much does the treatment cost?
Micro-Needling treatment costs can range from $100 – $500 per session depending on the size of the area being treated.
Most clinics perform a complimentary consultation to educate you about your options. Micro-needling is often performed in conjunction with other therapies.
I saw their ad in my school newspaper, and I am so glad I went for it.I am truly appreciative of their knowledge, techniques and reasonable prices.Brian
Lots of thanks again Victoria. The overall improvement is significant. I am really very grateful.Tania Weis
This product VICTORY for dry and cracked skin has literally changed the way I see my feet. They have never been so tender and soft. Trust me I have tried everything on the market, and have even made numerous trips to the doctor, but there was never a solution. Now, my cracked heals are gone, this cream really works!!! After one week I noticed a dramatic difference and after two weeks they were cured. After two months of not using VICTORY at all my feet are still soft without cracks. For 10 years I suffered the embarrassment of never being able to wear sandals or having my heals exposed. Thank you VICTORY for saving my feet. I recommend this product 100%!!!!Sandra Anderson
