MICRONEEDLING
Collagen Induction Therapy

Our microneedling treatment, is a minimally invasive skin resurfacing treatment aimed at treating signs of aging and improving the appearance of your face. This process is also often referred to as collagen induction therapy.

Over time, our bodies lose the ability to create collagen and elastin, the two components that help keep our skin firm, smooth, and supple. This is the reason why we offer our microneedling services here at BBC. In the microneedling process, the micro-injuries created by microneedling pen to help to activate and release growth factors that lead to the rebuilding of collagen and elastin in the skin.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS DOES IT TAKE?

A common misconception is that one session is enough, this isn't a one-and-done treatment. Consistency is the key- this isn't an overnight fix.

We recommend a series of 3-6 treatments, 2-4 weeks apart within 6 months the first time. After that, 4 treatments spread out in a year is recommended to keep up the results. Sessions may very depending on each

patient though.

OUR PROCESS

• Clean & Cleanse: We use cleansers to clean the skin surfaces that are receiving treatment.

• Numbing Cream: We apply a topical numbing cream to ease discomfort that may occur.

•  Growth Factors and Hyaluronic Acid Serum: Contains pro-healing anti-inflammatory growth factors and cytokines derived from laboratory culture of human bone marrow mesenchymal growth factor. Hyaluronic acid that promotes rapid ultra hydration and volume.

• Microneedling Pen Procedure: We use small needles to prick top-layer epidermis, generating new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer and more toned skin.

24 HOURS AFTER TREATMENT

Keep the area clean by avoiding exercise, intimate contact, sleeping with pets in bed, touching the area with dirty fingertips, dirty mobile phones, and/or make-up application. Sleep with hair pulled back and change pillowcase bedding. All that comes in contact with your skin will enter the skin for a limited time. We want to minimize breakouts due to bacteria. You may clean your face with a gentle cleanser before bed.

MORNING AFTER YOUR TREATMENT

  • Wash with any gentle cleanser.

  • Avoid heavy makeup.

  • Avoid chemical/mechanical exfoliants.

  • Tenderness to touch is normal.

  • Small pin-point bruises are normal.

  • Continue any in-office recommended creams and SPF.

  • Avoid direct sunlight.

  • Extremes of temperature (sauna/steam room)

  • Vigorous exercise

DAYS AFTER YOUR PROCEDURE

Dryness and flaking is normal. This is due to an increased turnover of skin cells. Continue any in-office recommended creams and SPF. You may continue your normal skincare routine 3 days after being treated. Redness/mild tingling may be normal.

WEEKS AFTER YOUR PROCEDURE

Microneedling directly results in a clinically significant and observable increase in collagen. Treatment protocols will vary depending on whether you are being treated for acne scarring / textural irregularities or hyperpigmentation like melasma. The clinical process of making new collagen and elastin can take up to 10 weeks. Skin thickening occurs, texture is smoother, and scars begin to fill with new collagen deposition. This takes time and optimal results are achieved over multiple sessions. Patience is rewarded when it comes to achieving Micro-Needling best outcomes.

This treatment is NOT recommended for pregnant/breastfeeding women. Do not stop any medically necessary medications. Allergies to anesthesia are rare, however do not apply if you are allergic to Lidocaine, Benzocaine, or Tetracaine.
