Nano-Needling

What is Nano-Needling?

This advanced pain-free method of Nano-needling stimulates collagen production in the skin by painlessly and safely infusing active ingredients through thousands of microscopic channels. Nano-needling tips are thinner than a human hair and are designed to have microscopic pyramid-like tips. With this design they are able to trick the body into repairing itself and allowing up to 97% product absorption. This treatment combats wrinkles, acne hyperpigmentation, fine lines, stretch marks, and other skin blemishes using your body’s own repair process.  This treatment needs no numbing cream and will painlessly smooth the skins texture and leave your skin glowing.

What does it feel like?

Nano-Infusion is pain-free, no numbing cream needed! You will feel light pressure and a vibrating sensation. Most find this a very relaxing treatment to receive.

When should I do this treatment?

Nano-Infusion is a no down-time treatment. The perfect treatment to get before an event as skin will be glowing and radiant. You can have a nano-infusion treatment done as often as every two weeks.

How does it work?

97% better product absorption due to the infusion of ingredients into the epidermis, feeding the skin the nutrients it needs to lighten, tighten, and brighten!

What is the difference between micro-needling and nano-needling?

Both nano-needling & micro-needling address the same skincare concerns and they both use a needling pen to create micro-channels in the skin. The main difference between the two is the depth that the needles are able to penetrate into the skin. Nano-needling only punctures the first layer of the skin (epidermis) while micro-needling penetrates into the deep dermis. If you are concerned about fine lines & wrinkles, swelling, dark pigmentation or sagging skin, then nano-needling is for you. If your skin care concerns include deep wrinkles, hypo-pigmentation, stretch marks or deep acne scars, than micro-needling would be the treatment for that. By creating these micro-channels in the skin, it increases product absorption by 97% and encourages your body to rejuvenate itself. (We only offer the nano-needling service)

Is Nano-Needling Safe?

Skin needling can be safely performed on all skin types and colors. There is no risk of post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation as the melanocytes remain intact (as long as post-care instructions are followed). This treatment is highly effective if you’re hoping to reduce the appearance of fine lines (especially around the eyes and lips), improve the tone and texture of your skin, shrink the appearance of your pore size, reduce pigmentation or lift and firm the skin.

What does a Nano-needling treatment include?

We like to customize each treatment to your specific skin care concerns whether it be aging, brightening or clarifying, we want to give you the best results possible.

How often can I get a Nano-needling treatment?

Nano-Needling can be done every two to three weeks. For best results, we recommend a series of treatments.

What is the difference of at home “needle-rollers/derma-rollers” and a Professional treatment?

Most at home needling devices use a rolling wheel of needles while our nano-needling pen has a disposable cartridges with a cluster of flat needles at the tip. Both work to stimulate growth of new collagen and elastin by causing an injury to the skin. Aside from at home needling devices being sold with no training or protocol, there are a couple concerns for the potential risks of using one. Professional needling pens use disposable tips which decrease the risk for infection and contamination. At home rollers are reusable devices that most people would not think to sterilize.

 

Studies have shown that even after proper sterilization, the proteins in your skin still do not break down and are therefore left on the device to grow bacteria which leaves you open to infection the next time you give yourself a treatment. The width & depth of the needles also play a huge factor in the treatment. Your at home needling devices are sold on a roller and because of that they are not penetrating into your skin on a flat surface and instead are rolling/gliding into your skin on an angle. This action can cause microscopic tears and could  leave you with scaring, granulomas and skin more damaged than what you started with.

 

Needling treatments can also be done too often and by not allowing the proper amount of time for the skin to rejuvenate itself, you will eventually break down and damage the formation of your collagen and elastin production. Professional needling pens are able to penetrate the skin on a flat surface as well as doing multiple passes without creating the same channel twice or tearing the skin.

 

Professional needling pens also use disposable tips therefore eliminating the risk of infection. It is very important what products you are using during/after your at home needling treatments. Using the wrong products can generate an inflammatory response and possibly cause lumpiness, granulomas and scarring. Your ingredients matter and they need to meet a certain criteria. Needling, both at home and professionally can give fantastic results as long as the proper education goes into it.
