Is Micro-Needling painful?

The variety of needle cartridges with the Micro-Needling pen gives the esthetician the ability to customize the treatment to fit each individual’s needs and comfort levels. All Micro-Needling treatments at Pro Touch Esthetics are conducted using a local anesthetic numbing cream to prevent treatment discomfort.

What should I use post-treatment?

The professional strength CIT Enhancement Serum can be needled into the skin and used post treatment care. It is recommended for continual daily use to reduce the appearance of hyper-pigmentation, scaring, fine lines, Rosacea and enlarged pore size. Continuation of daily usage of our CIT Serum will benefit in boosting and extending the effects of CIT. It also adds much needed hydration to treated and or aging skin which provides a more supple and youthful glow.

How does Micro-Needling work on a cellular level?

As the Micro-Needling pen creates micro-channels into the skin, pores are temporarily opened allowing the enhancement serum to be fully penetrated. Micro-point punctures in the skin are created. This is a controlled injury to the skin and is perceived by the body as damage. This stimulates the release of growth factors that trigger the production of Collagen and Elastin. Skin reacts to this micro-needling treatment by initiating the healing process which encourages your skin to continue to regenerate. This is one of the few ways to produce collagen and elastin in the skin.

When should I expect to see results?

Skin naturally heals itself every 45 days so by simply adding micro-needling stimulation, the changes can be accelerated. The process of micro-needling skin remodeling can continue to enhance for months after treatment as the skin continues to repair itself. Expect full results after 2-4 weeks post micro-needling treatment. Depending on your personal goals we recommend a series of 3 micro-needling sessions to speed up the production of collagen and elastin and to achieve optimum results. However, skin improvement is noticeable after just one treatment!
