For our organism, our skin is a periphery organ.
This means that it is at the bottom of the priority list when it comes to the distribution of nourishing ingredients. Tissue regeneration and vitality maintenance are far more important for internal organs.
Therefore, it is important to physically stimulate regeneration of the skin.
Each micro-damage that is formed on the skin actually sends a message to the brain that it is necessary to start the natural regeneration and nourishment in that very spot. In that way the collagen production is greatly stimulated.
How does Microneedling work ?
The procedure is aimed at stimulating micro-circulation, thus it has also been successfully used for hair restoration in cases of non-androgenic alopecia.
Micro-punctures are being inflicted by hand in the region of the most prominent wrinkles or skin changes and by Phi needle pen system for the wider facial skin area. Microneedles penetrate the skin to the depth of 0.2 – 0.75mm and the procedure is considered to be painless. During the treatment, specific designed and patented serum is applied to the skin surface and subsequently absorbed. A post treatment cream is to be applied for five days 2-3 times a day. Proper aftercare is important, because the products will help nourish the skin during the regeneration process.
