Can Micro-Needling Improve The Appearance of Fine Lines

Micro-needling has been around for many years, and has become increasingly popular. Essentially, micro-needling also known as Collagen Induction Therapy is a non-surgical, non-ablative procedure that uses fine needles to create controlled micro injuries on the skin, which stimulates the body’s natural healing and repair process, leading to the production of new collagen, elastin, and capillaries. Furthermore, the tiny punctures also help with nutrient absorption and circulation. The end result is enhanced collagen and elastin which improves your skin tone and texture, and also improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.There are four main types of micro-needling such as Micro-Needling + Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP), Microneedling + Radiofrequency (more commonly called IF Microneedling, Micro-Needling + Redensity I, and traditional Micro-Needling.

Traditional Microneedling: A device with many small sterile needles is applied to the skin to create tiny punctures. This damage then spurs the body’s immune system to repair the skin by boosting collagen.

Microneedling and PRP: This is more commonly known as the “vampire facial”, and it involves drawing blood, processing it in a centrifuge to separate the plasma-rich component, and the re-incorporating it into the skin through micro-needling.

Microneedling and RadioFrequency: A specialized device delivers a burst of radiofrequency energy to the skin. The heat generated basically spurs the production of collagen and elastin, resulting in a greater degree of skin benefits including skin tightening.

Microneedling with Redensity I: This treatment, also known as Beauty Booster, is performed with a handheld device that comes with a disposable micro-needle head with nine 1mm needles which delivers controlled micro-injuries to the skin. Like other types of micro-needling, these injuries cause the skin to produce collagen and elastin, which in turn lead to a reduction in lines and wrinkles. What makes this type of micro-needling different, is that the device, called the V2, injects a hyaluronic-acid based product called Redensity I into the skin, which leads to a host of skin benefits.

What is Redensity I?

Teoxane Redensity I contains pure Hyaluronic Acid as well as a blend of amino acids, antioxidants, minerals and vitamins, which serve to optimize DNA synthesis and stimulate collagen production. Redensity I won the Skin Hero of the Year award at the Safety in Beauty Awards, and is a powerful tool in your arsenal to combat skin aging, by improving the overall quality of the skin, increasing hydration, minimizing wrinkles and fine lines, and imparting a glowing, supple complexion.

How Long Does a Beauty Booster Treatment Take?

The process is simple and only takes about 30 minutes. You’ll see a noticeable difference in your skin after one treatment, but the optimal results will be achieved if you do three treatments approximately three weeks apart.
