How it works: This professional-grade of micro-needling infusion delivers targeted skincare products to the upper dermis. Using needles smaller than the width of a hair, this remarkable device can infuse micro-doses of filler, neurotoxin, vitamin antioxidant, growth factors, peptides, and more to key growth areas of the skin.
Best results with microinjections are seen when the skin is pretreated with the electric micro-needling procedure (see above), to “prime the soil” and allow easy flow of the microinfusions into the skin, and then followed by iontophoresis.
This resulting 3 step treatment process can only be found at SkinHappy MD. With a deep understanding of each of the treatment’s strengths, Dr. Kenner has discovered that combining electric micro-needling, with microinjections and iontophoresis- in succession-allows the special features of each technique to complement and enhance each other. This combined treatment procedure is very powerful and more effective than when treatments are done individually- yet, all is done with complete comfort in a short time span.
Depending on individual skin needs, this treatment may be followed by a gentle low-level chemical peel to loosen the adhesions between cells and encourage pigment clearing. Alternatively, or in addition, low dose neurotoxin may be needled into the skin to induce a durable and impressive reduction in pore size and skin oiliness.
What it treats: Flushing/ facial redness; facial oiliness and large pores; shallow acne scars; fine lines; and sun damage; aging skin.
Recovery Time/Results: Variable redness and fine peeling for a few days. Redness reduction and oiliness/pore reduction are noticed in 1-2 weeks and can last 6-12 months. Collagen production stimulation is best achieved with a series of 3-6 treatments spaced 2-4 weeks apart, with results seen over 3-12 months.
Collagen is a large complex molecule, and cannot be consumed or applied topically to areas of desired replenishment. Rather, the production of collagen within the deeper parts of the skin must be induced using key ingredients that have been depleted from chronic sun damage. Once stimulated, collagen production takes 3-6 months to lay down; collagen laydown is best achieved with repeated “stimulation”. The induced collagen can be long-lasting in the setting of appropriate skincare.
This treatment falls into the RENEW, REPAIR and PROTECT layers of the SkinHappy Pyramid.
