Microneedling by MD ELITE can be performed on all skin types, including ethnic skin. It can be used on all areas of the scalp, face, body including fragile skin like around eyes, mouth and neck. An electric skin needling device with 12-36 very fine needles is used to break down old scar tissue and to stimulate skin cells to proliferate. This results in the formation of new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibers and new capillaries for improved blood supply.

Most people will experience redness and mild swelling in a similar way as mild sunburn for 24-48 hours and there may be minimal pin-point bleeding and/or bruising. You will quickly notice that your skin is smoother and more radiant looking, and the full effects will be seen a few months later. Microneedling can be safely repeated every 2-4 weeks until you achieve the desired results. For collagen induction, we recommend to start with 3 treatments, but with a minimum separation time of 4 to 6 weeks between treatments. For scar reduction an average of 3 to 6 treatments are recommended. The number of treatments required will depend on how each individual responds to the treatments. Most people will begin to see results after the very first appointment.
NO open wounds, cuts or abrasions on the skin
NO radiation treatment to the skin within the last 3 months
NO current skin infection or active herpes simplex viral outbreak in the area to be treated

After To ensure proper healing, for 2-3 days do not use AHA’s (glycolic Acid), retinol, acidic or “active” ingredients. Exposure to sun should also be avoided or zinc based sunblock should be used.
