As a Cosmetic Laser Centre, we are inundated with thousands of products and laser companies every year. Each claims to be the best, the most innovative and comes with its own endorsements and research. So, when it came time to look at adding a Microneedling technology to our practice, we were highly selective about which technology to add.
How do we decide what technology is the best?
- Expert Advice: Our Medical Advisor, Dermatologist, Dr. Muba Taher and team dissect research papers & interview tech providers with the hard medical questions.
- Medical Network: We interview other Dermatologists & Doctors who have the technology and other comparables (Non-Advocates for impartial information)
- Trial: We trial the machine and test for: Results, Safety, Comfort, Costs.
- Does it fit our clients: budget, lifestyle and treatment-time constraints?
- Training – What is the on-going staff training support and qualifications of the trainers as provided by the company?
Does it really work?
After all was said and done, Endymed Pro 3DEEP Intensif Microneedling with RF came up with a resounding LOVE from all 14 of our staff (nursing and Laser Aestheticians). Hands down, we have loved it from day 1 of testing! 2 months later, seeing the results of our test patients, we are very confident with the machine, the technology and the RESULTS!
What is Microneedling and how does it work?
The Endymed Pro Intensif, RF Microneedling uses radiofrequency, an advanced technology that safely heats the collagen in the skin (dermis and subcutaneous tissues). The heat energy is delivered to the dermis through gold plated microneedles which, when inserted at the proper level, cause the collagen to contract, resulting in a notable change in the appearance of the skin. A by-product of this treatment is the stimulation of natural collagen production, which results in skin that appears tighter and younger.
Essentially, we trick your skin to think it is wounded, resulting in improved texture and collagen stimulation.
Who should consider this treatment?
For clients who desire a considerable effect, with no-downtime and a ‘Je ne sais quoi’ look that engenders the envy of onlookers. Microneedling is one of favorite pre-juvenation/rejuvenation treatments for skin health. Suitable for all skin types, this treatment is excellent for collagen remodeling, wrinkles, scars, acne scars and has the side effect of tightening (who can say no to that?)
Which areas can be treated?
This unique and highly effective technology, is designed for anti-wrinkle and skin tightening of:
- Acne Scars
- Deep Wrinkles
- Stretch Marks
- Dilated Pores
- Loose skin
- Large pores
Where does it come from?
Microneedling finds its roots centuries ago in China, where Acupuncturists used needles to penetrate the skin in an attempt to get material through. Fast forward to 1905, we see this thought pattern repeat in Germany with dermatologist, Dr. Ernst Kromayer and re-emerge in Philadelphia, US in 1995, where 2 dermatologist brothers used bevel needles to treat scars and wrinkles in the hope of creating subdermal release with some success.
In other words, the ‘Hottest New Skin Trend’ isn’t new at all, but rather a beautiful evolution of skin science and centuries of evolution.
Microneedling, as we define it today, is the evolution of science paving the way for development of needles so tiny and hollow, that it could effectively penetrate the epidermis of the skin, stimulating the body’s healing response to the micro wounds and generating collagen regeneration. This we owe to Dr. Schwarz who is the founder of a dermal roller technique known as ‘Collagen induction therapy’, the foundation of our Microneedling techniques today.
Does it hurt?
Short answer – there is some discomfort. Prior to your treatment, a technician will use a topical numbing cream so that the treatment will be more comfortable. The client will feel the needles momentarily as penetrate the skin, but the numbing does provide a muted sensation, with no blood and it is normal to have some redness post treatment. Most clients, using mineral makeup, could go back to work within a few hours. Expect your skin to continue to improve, as your body’s natural healing response and boosted by the tightening and contouring effects of the 3DEEP Radiofrequency technology. The side effect – Beautiful Skin.
How may treatments
