Microneedling is a safe, efficient, and minimally invasive therapeutic technique. Initially, it was used to rejuvenate the skin. It is now used for a wide range of skin issues including wrinkles, dehydrated skin, hyperpigmentation, scars, enlarged pores, acne scars, stretch marks and even alopecia (hair loss).
Before each microneedling treatment, a gentle numbing cream is applied to the skin. This makes the treatment more comfortable. During the treatment, the skin is gently perforated with delicate microneedles with minimal invasiveness. Invisible microchannels are created in the surface layer of the skin. Creation of these microchannels has multiple beneficial effects: the stimulation of collagen production in the skin and transepidermal application of treatment serums directly into the dermis. A palette of 15 different PhiBright serums enables personalized treatment of each client and an individual approach depending on the client’s skin type and condition.
After the microneedling procedure, the skin will be red and flushed on appearance in a similar way to a mild sunburn. You may also experience slight skin tightness and mild sensitivity. This will diminish greatly after a few hours following the treatment and within the next 24 hours, the skin will be completely healed.
Treatment results include increased skin hydration, improved skin tone and smoothness causing existing wrinkles to be less visible and skin younger-looking, the removal of pigmentations, enlarged pores, acne scars, stretch marks and scars.
The treatments are done in series and there are visible results after each treatment. The recommendation is a series of 3 to 6 treatments with 2-4 weeks gap between each of them. Additional series can be done to continue to improve the skin or the treatment can be performed on a monthly basis for maintenance, or combined with other facial services like Venus Viva Radiofrequency skin rejuvenation or also Venus Legacy skin tightening facials.
