Microneedling in Leicester

Beauty by Teena’s offers microneedling in its Oadby, Leicester salon. Microneedling is a cosmeceutical procedure – i.e. a procedure that achieves cosmetic results using medical-grade devices. When microneedling, tiny needles from a motorised microneedling pen are used to make microscopic punctures in the skin.

Microneedling is also referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT). This is because the microscopic punctures created during the treatment (known as microchannels) trigger a trauma/healing response in your skin. Your skin perceives that there has been a minor injury and as a result, floods the tissue with the signal to naturally produce more collagen and elastin to heal the ‘wound’.

As the skin heals, so do skin imperfections, which soften and can even disappear altogether. Microneedling is, therefore, helpful for the treatment of fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone and dryness/dullness, making it an anti-ageing wonder treatment.

Micro Needling FAQs

What is the goal of microneedling?

The goal of microneedling is to open microchannels into the skin to allow for deeper delivery/penetration of skincare products, allowing the Mesotherapy to work more effectively to achieve its goals.

Another goal of microneedling is also to trigger the skin’s own healing response to the perceived ‘trauma’ to the skin caused by microneedling, prompting the skin to produce growth factors, turnover skin cells faster and create new collagen and elastin bonds – this, overall, gives the skin a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance.

Who is microneedling good for?

Microneedling is wonderful for anyone who wishes to restore vitality to their complexion, anyone who wishes to look fresher and anyone who wishes to heal skin imperfections and fight the visible signs of ageing.

When will I see results from microneedling?

Microneedling will give some instantaneous results in the form of a ‘glow’. You’ll also notice some redness because the skin has been penetrated and blood flow to the skin has increased.

Skin cells take 4-6 weeks to complete a life cycle, and you’ll see results amplifying during this time as your skin heals and new tissues are flooded with collagen and elastin.

Are there any side effects to microneedling?

After microneedling, your skin will likely turn a little red/pink, and you may experience some pinprick bleeding . Your skin might also look a little blotchy. Rest assured, this is temporary! Your skin may also be a little puffy and very rarely you may experience some slight bruising, especially around areas of thin tissue (such as the delicate skin around the eyes).

What will the skin feel like after microneedling?

After microneedling, your skin also may feel a little rough to the touch for a few days and you may notice some visible marks on your skin, both caused by the microchannels created during microneedling. These side effects are all part of the body’s healing process.  Microneedling triggers a trauma/healing response in the skin (which is what helps stimulate the production of collagen and elastin).

Does microneedling hurt? What does microneedling feel like?

The very top layer of the skin doesn’t have many nerve endings, so shallow microneedling is virtually painless.

However, the level of discomfort can increase as you go deeper into the skin.

Microneedling Aftercare

The day after treatment, wash your face with a gentle cleanser and apply a nourishing moisturiser. Avoid products containing fragrances or active ingredients (vitamin C, A/Retinols), acids (lactic acid, AHA, BHA), scrubs or toners which may cause irritation.

Your skin may experience mild swelling, bruising, peeling and flaking. Keeping the skin moisturised during the healing process can minimise dryness/flakiness, reduce shedding and alleviate tightness.

Avoid exercising, sweating excessively, swimming or applying makeup for 24 hours. You must also use a high-protection sunscreen when going outdoors and avoid prolonged sun exposure.

48 Hours After

Do not exfoliate if the skin feels sensitive – the flakiness and dryness will naturally subside. Use any provided aftercare products as directed.

3-5 Days Post-Treatment

Continue to apply a high-protection sunscreen daily and avoid direct and extended sunlight for up to 1-week post-needling.

Your skincare routine should focus on hydrating and moisturising products, avoiding active ingredients, acids, scrubs and toners.

7+ Days Post-Treatment

You can return to your regular skincare routine.
