The body has a remarkable way of healing itself; when your child falls and scrapes his knee, you can rest assured that the wound will slowly fade. Here at The Stem Cell Center, we believe that harnessing the body’s natural healing abilities is one of the best ways to deal with blemishes or flawed skin—and that’s what micro-needling is all about.
Micro-needling is a clinical process that uses ultra-fine needles to create “micro injuries” on the skin. This stimulates the skin’s built-in ability to repair itself. The treatment can result in improvement in acne scars, stretch marks, fine lines, and uneven skin tone.
Our Micro-needling Procedures
In addition to the standard micro-needling service, our clinicians can also apply platelet-rich platelet (PRP) on the face after the treatment. Micro-needling augmented with the healing factors from the patient’s own platelets and plasma jumpstarts the skin’s self-repair ability and can produce even faster and better results.
The most advanced of all micro-needling procedures involves nanofat (your stem cells) as the lubricant for the fine needles. As an alternative to nanofat, umbilical stem cells can be used. For this procedure, stem cells are thus injected into the skin, which increases collagen production and enhances healing. This procedure is best for patients with fine lines, crepe-line skin, scars, and uneven skin tone. Often PRP is then also applied after the treatment to further speed recovery.
To achieve the best results from your micro-needling experience, our clinicians recommend just a few basic aftercare guidelines:
- Avoid washing your face for 24 hours after the procedure.
- Once that 24 hours is up, wash using a gentle face wash; stick to this gentle cleanser for a week.
- For one week following the procedure, avoid any “active ingredient” facial products.
- For four weeks following the procedure, try to minimize your exposure to the sun. If you’re spending extended time outside, make sure to use sunscreen.
- Also avoid strenuous exercise and sauna treatments in the first 24 hours after the procedure.
The downtime for these procedures is minimal, and most patients will feel fine to return to work the next day. The skin might be slightly pink, and some patients may notice some minor peeling, but this only lasts three to five days.
Your clinician will advise you on the best skincare products to use following micro-needling, ensuring optimal results and a healthy recovery. We will also advise on the need for any follow-up appointments.
