Benefits of Microneedling

During a microneedling treatment, a microneedling pen is used. This device is equipped with tiny needles that create small punctures or microchannels in the skin’s surface. The depth of the needles can be adjusted based on the specific skin concerns being addressed.

The micro-injuries created by the needles trigger the body’s wound healing process, leading to the production of new collagen and elastin fibers. Collagen is a protein that provides structure and firmness to the skin, while elastin contributes to its elasticity. By stimulating collagen production, microneedling can improve the skin’s texture, tone, and overall appearance. The treatment area may include the face, neck, décolletage, or other body parts.

Microneedling can address various skin concerns, including:

Fine lines and wrinkles: It can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, promoting a smoother and more youthful complexion.

Scars: Microneedling is commonly used to improve the appearance of acne scars, surgical scars, and other types of scars. It stimulates collagen production, which can help to fill in and soften the scar tissue.

Uneven skin texture: It can improve the texture of the skin by reducing roughness, large pores, and uneven skin tone.

Hyperpigmentation: Microneedling can be effective in reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation, such as sunspots, age spots, and melasma.

Stretch marks: It may help to diminish the appearance of stretch marks by promoting collagen remodeling and improving skin elasticity.

After the microneedling treatment, the skin may appear slightly red or irritated, similar to a mild sunburn. Some individuals may experience temporary sensitivity or dryness. These effects typically subside within a few hours to a few days.

The number of microneedling sessions required depends on the individual’s skin condition and desired results. Typically, a series of treatments spaced several weeks apart is recommended to achieve optimal outcomes. Results may vary, but most individuals start to see improvements in their skin texture and appearance within a few weeks after the first

Add-on Exosomes with Microneedling

Exosomes microneedling is an innovative technique that combines microneedling with the application of exosomes, which are small extracellular vesicles derived from stem cells. Exosomes contain various growth factors, cytokines, and proteins that can support tissue regeneration and promote healing.

During an exosomes microneedling treatment, a microneedling device is used to create controlled micro-injuries on the skin’s surface. This process stimulates the skin’s natural healing response and enhances the absorption of the applied exosomes. After the microneedling, exosomes are topically applied to the treated area, allowing them to penetrate deeper into the skin through the microchannels.

Exosomes have the potential to modulate cell communication and promote tissue repair and regeneration. By applying exosomes to the skin following microneedling, it is believed to enhance the therapeutic effects of the procedure. The exosomes can help stimulate collagen production, improve skin texture and elasticity, reduce inflammation, and promote overall skin rejuvenation.

The benefits of exosomes microneedling may include:

Enhanced collagen production: Exosomes contain growth factors that can stimulate the production of collagen and elastin fibers, leading to improved skin firmness and elasticity.

Improved skin texture and tone: The combination of microneedling and exosomes can help refine the skin’s texture, reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars, and promote a smoother and more even skin tone.

Increased absorption of exosomes: Microneedling creates microchannels in the skin, allowing better penetration and absorption of the applied exosomes, enhancing their effectiveness.

Accelerated healing and recovery: The growth factors and proteins present in exosomes can aid in the healing process, reducing downtime and promoting faster recovery after microneedling.
