Microneedling, also known as dermarolling (Basic one), Derma Pen (Advance One) or skin needling is a minimally invasive collagen induction therapy (CIT) that involves repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny, sterile small needles, whose depth can be regulated for different skin types and targets. By using this tool, the production of collagen is stimulated, and cell regeneration is promoted.
Microblading /Feathering eyebrows in average lasts for 8-12 months. Be aware of places saying that microblading will last for 2-3 years, You can see the reason why it’s not true in our blog posts. unless they are using “tattoo ink” instead of cosmetic tattoo pigment. and nano brows usually last between 12-15 months. It still depends on your skin type and you can get the advice at consultation.
Before care: Do not use topical agents that may increase the sensitivity of your skin before the microneedling procedure such as retinoid and exfoliants.
Aftercare: Start using aftercare products from the evening of the treatment, up to the next 5 days, 3 times daily at morning, evening, and night before going to bed. After the treatment do not:
• wash your face for 12 hours
• expose the skin to direct sunlight for 24 hours
• apply make-up for 24 hours
• use foundations and powders for 48 hours
• use sauna, swimming pools and sunbeds for 3 days
• expose yourself to physical exertion for 2 days
• use botox or fillers for the next 3 weeks
• 3 sessions with 10-14 days gaps between sessions, and do the cycle after 4 months again
• 3 sessions with 10-14 days gaps between sessions, then do it one session monthly
Usually, the skin will be a bit red like a sunburn for the next 24 hours after the microneedling treatment. Also, It is possible that in the next 3 days after the treatment, the treated area will be red and that the client will feel tingling and tightening of the skin.
At ELKA Clinic we provide an Australian customized topical anesthetic cream for each client which is very strong and usually clients feel very comfortable during treatment with no pain. In case some people are more sensitive or if the cream wears off quicker on some skin types, we will apply a strong numbing gel which is patented for during microneedling procedure and makes the skin completely numb in maximum 5 minutes.
It is very significant which products you are using during the treatment and what is also significant is the skincare after the microneedling treatment and following the aftercare instructions properly.
