ADVANCE Microneedling

the-pros-and-cons-of-microneedling.jpeg

The Advance Rejuvenation system from DP Derm utilizes fractional micro-channeling to pierce the skin's surface at a 90-degree angle. During the procedure, the sterile tip of a 3MD Microderm cartridge gently glides over the skin, creating millions of fine channels. These channel subsequent help deliver topically applied formulas deeper into the skin 

3MD systematically creates micro-channels in the skin and the body naturally responds by launching processes to repair the physical damage. The result is an increased production of normal woven collagen, similar to fractional laser treatments, but without the side effects and downtime.

When compared to traditional dermal rollers, 3MD causes less epidermal (skin) damage, reducing levels of pain and discomfort. As a result, this device is a safer, more comfortable, and more effective micro-needling treatment. Sterile single-use cartridges eliminate the risk of cross-contamination, whilst the adjustable settings allow for a treatment that is fully tailored to your individual needs. The design of the device also allows for it to be used in hard to reach areas such as around the eyes, eyelids, earlobes, neck, lips, and the nose 

Your Esthetician is best suited to assess your skin and treatment area, as well as recommend a treatment plan that will be most beneficial for you.

 6 Weeks apart

4-6 Weeks apart  

How long should it take before I see results?

Typically, you will see results after the first treatment. Lasting and more significant result will become visible after 4 to 6 treatments (spaced 4-6 week apart). The condition of your skin will continue to improve over the next 6-12 months after a course of treatments post-treatment care.

Is the treatment painfull? 

3MD treatments are relatively painless. Deeper treatments may require a topical anesthetic cream to be applied for 15-40 minutes before the procedure. This will render the treatments virtually pain-free.

Is there any downtime after treatments?

Generally no, but you may experience facial redness for 12 to 48 hours after the treatment. Most people are able to return to normal daily activities immediately after the treatment. Application of a breathable camouflage will seal the skin and cover any redness for an immediate return to work.

How soon after filler/muscle relaxat injections can I have a microneedling treatment?

while there is no clinical evidence that 3MD treatments counteract with any particular injectables, it is important to let your esthetician know if you have had an injectable treatment, or are planing on having one done in the near future. Your esthetician will be able to advice you on when to schedule your treatment appropriately
