Before & After - MicroneedlingMicroneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is a procedure that improves the appearance of wrinkles, acne scars, loss of firmness, brown spots and stretch marks by stimulating the skin’s natural ability to repair itself.  A device with tiny, sharp needles is used to create hundreds of micro-channels in the skin. This process triggers the release of growth factors and cytokines, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, resulting in younger looking skin.

During a treatment, the skin is cleansed thoroughly then a topical OTC anesthetic numbing cream is applied that keeps the client comfortable during the procedure. The microneedle glides effortlessly over the skin with the use of a topical serum or saline solution to create a glide on the skin’s surface. 

Microneedling is a well tolerated and cost effective treatment that is suitable for most skin types and conditions, including sensitive skin, darker skin, Rosacea, fine and deep lines and wrinkles, loss of firmness, acne, scarring and stretch marks. It may be performed on the face or body with excellent results.  Due to the channels created in the skin, the skin will be red and feel irritated which may last for a few hours up to three days.  There is often a light peeling days 3-5 after the treatment.

Continued improvement may be seen 4 to 6 months after the initial treatment.  For best results, a series is recommended.  Please consult with your skin care professional to design the best plan for your skin and to see if you are a good candidate.

Pre + Post Skin Care for Microneedling

NeoGenesis and Microneedling are a perfect match. As with any advanced treatment, it is important to prepare the skin in advance of receiving the treatment to optimize the intended results and minimize downtime or unwanted results. Prepare the skin for microneedling as far in advance as possible, a minimum of one week.  After cleansing with the NeoGenesis Cleanser, apply Recovery all over the face and neck, around the eyes and lips. Follow with Barrier Renewal Cream. Do this twice daily prior to the microneedle treatment.

NeoGenesis Recovery Serum may be applied both before and directly after the needling is complete. Inflammation and irritation occur during microneedling and the skin may benefit from added growth factors. Barrier Renewal Cream will keep the skin hydrated and improve barrier function and may be applied directly after the treatment. Moisturizing Mist provides a soothing mist to the skin and may be used as needed after the microneedle treatment. Beginning the next day, continue with the pre-microneedle treatment with the addition of the Moisturizing Mist for instant relief. After 7 to 10 days, the skin will return to a normal state.

When the skin is completely healed, Recovery serum may be used daily or 3 to 4 times per week as a boost prior to any other product. After approximately 10 days, consult our mature + ageing skin page for additional ideas to support your skin care.

Before + After - Microneedling“I am a licensed Esthetician who has become a big believer in NeoGenesis Recovery for many of my treatments. I want to mention a client with over-stimulated skin due to her home care protocol of too many actives at one time. During her first Collagen Induction Therapy session, and as a brand new client, I could barely perform the treatment as her skin reacted with large red welts and some pinpoint bleeding at a very shallow needle depth.  During that time she remained red for over 2 days.  The redness should have dissipated in a few hours.  Fast forward one month to the second treatment.  My client was compliant in her home care. During her treatment I used Recovery prior to the microneedling and immediately after.  The difference was remarkable!  The first photo shows my client immediately after her second treatment.  The second photo shows her in less than 20 minutes post treatment!  This is taken in natural light with absolutely no makeup or filters.  I am a believer and Recovery will definitely be in my protocol for microneedling.” ~ PV
