MICRONEEDLING & AFTERCARE

Microneedling promotes the production of collagen and elastin through the Raffine micro needle device, stimulating the skins metabolism. It gives the skin a boost through a bespoke cocktail of powerful vitamins, minerals and amino acids to look brighter, feel firmer and fade the appearance of lines and wrinkles. As soon as the deepest layers of your skin are penetrated by the needles, “micro-wounds” are created. This triggers your body’s wound healing processes to heal your micro wounds immediately. However, the most dramatic results will not be visible until 4-6 weeks after treatment.

Mesotherapy has been used for decades to target cellulite and fatty tissue, it also improves blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, and combined with helping skin elasticity it is an ideal treatment for stretch marks and acne scarring. Mesotherapy is a natural advanced cosmetic treatment, and is a safe, natural alternative to invasive cosmetic procedures such as Botox and Dermal Fillers.

We use the Raffine automatic microneedling therapy system, which is safe, effective and suitable for all skin types. It can be used on all areas of the face and body for a variety of purposes, including cellulite treatment, scar removal treatment and hyperpigmentation treatment. The Raffine therapy system is far more advanced than roller needling.

 

Clinical studies have also shown automatic microneedling devices to be more effective than ablative treatments like laser resurfacing, dermabrasion and chemical peels. However, the Raffine is also just as effective as non-ablative treatments like IPL, CO2 Laser and Fraxel in stimulating collagen and elastin production to thicken the skin, thereby erasing wrinkles and smoothing scars.

Suffering with Hair loss? This is a great treatment for providing the scalp with a boost of vitamins and improving blood flow for hair regrowth. It treats the bald patches, and activates the follicles to show positive results for hair regrowth in both men & women.

PRE TREATMENT

 

  • 6 months prior - avoid Accutane 6 months prior.

  • 14 days prior - avoid IPL/Laser procedures, unprotected sun exposure or sunburn.

  • 7 days prior - avoid the use of topical agents that may increase sensitivity of skin: retinoids, topical antibiotics, exfoliants, acids that may be drying or irritating to the skin (such as alpha hydroxyl acid (AHA) beta hydroxyl acids (BHA), exfoliating masks, salicylic acids, hydroquinone, and benzoyl peroxide acne products).

  • 7 days prior - No waxing, depilatory creams or electrolysis in the treatment area.

  • 7 days prior - Avoid blood-thinning agents (aspirin, fish oil, Omega-3, Vitamin E)

  • 3 days prior - do not take any anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen, Motrin or Advil. These agents will interfere with the natural inflammatory process that is critical and responsible for your skin rejuvenation.

  • Shaving - No shaving the day of the procedure to avoid skin irritation. If there is dense hair present in the treatment area, closely shave the area the day before you arrive to your appointment.

AFTERCARE

  • Refrain from touching the skin with your hands until the pores have had chance to close. DO NOT PICK OR PULL THE SKIN. Any redness should subside over a 24-36 hour period.

  • Gently wash the treated areas on the same day, but do not rub or massage the face for 2 weeks. Cleanse using a mild cleanser such as CLINICCARE Concentrated Cleansing Foam. It is recommended that the use of soaps, other than those recommended by your practitioner, on the treated skin area is restricted until the redness subsides and where possible lukewarm water and/ or gentle skin cleansers are used for cleansing. Do not scrub. pat dry only with a clean towel.

  • Use of intensive moisturiser is advised for at least a week as your skin may feel drier or tighter after your treatment- this is quite normal.

  • Avoid facial products containing fragrance for 3-5 days after treatment as these may irritate the skin.

  • Make up can be applied once the skin has settles, but ensure all brushes and sponges have been cleaned.

  • Refrain from extreme temperatures such as intensive sun light, saunas, subbed, steam bath for a period of at least 2 weeks after treatment. 

  • Apply a sunscreen with an SPF+30 (such as CLINICCARE Sun Shield Silky Cream SPF30) on a daily basis and with regular applications for a period of at least 2 weeks.

  • Avoid electrolysis, waxing, bleaching (face), depilatory creams, laser hair removal for at least 72 hours.

  • Do not swim in chlorinated water for approximately 14 days.

  • Please report any concerns to your practitioner as soon as possible.

RISKS & REACTIONS 

Reactions from treatment include: Skin redness and flushing, tightness, itching, tenderness, stinging, swelling and some pinpoint bleeding.

Effects will usually typically resolve within hours and many people are able to return to their normal activities the same day or next day. Some people may react differently and may experience these reactions for longer. However, these reactions are temporary and typically resolve within 3-4 days as the skin returns to normal. There is a small risk of side effects causing the skin to turn very red, blister, swell, peel and later scab and crust. In severe cases infection and ulceration may result, although this is not expected to occur due to the sterility of the microneedling device and the minimally invasive nature of the micro-medical needles.

Micro-needle therapy procedure may cause areas of bruising although this would not normally be expected to occur, the eye contour being the area at most risk. Any such bruising will be temporary. If you are taking any medication or dietary supplements that can affect platelet function and bleeding time, the severity and period of bruising can be extended, also the presence of petechiae (Small red or purple spots beneath the skin) may be observed. There is a small risk that hyper-pigmentation of the skin can occur after the procedure, although this is not normally expected as the epidermis of the skin is not removed as a result of the procedure. Failure to follow the advice detailed below can increase this risk. As with the use of any product, there is also a small risk of reaction to the Mesotherapy products.
