1. What is Microneedling
Microneedling is designed to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, scars, stretch marks, large pores, and acne scars. Elanita uses Dermapen, a handheld device that resembles a pen but uses 12 microscopic needles to breach the surface layers of skin, creating very tiny wound patterns which break up old collagen and stimulate a natural healing process. The micro wounds stimulate the body’s natural healing response, which floods the area with red and white blood cells, oxygen, and all of the beneficial nutrients found in the blood. Additionally, microneedling is known to stimulate collagen production. Our collagen production tends to decrease as we age, but this treatment tricks the body into producing more of this compound necessary for smooth, youthful skin.
2. Why get micro-needling?
These treatments smooth the look of scars, enlarged pores, fine lines, wrinkles, and imperfections. Micropens have sanitary, disposable needle tips which can be customized for different areas of the face, which will need different levels of penetration for optimal results. The hand piece vibrates, which also stimulates collagen production. The results are usually fully visible in four weeks. Once the procedure is finished, we can utilize high grade serums or stem cells which can now penetrate deep into the skin.
3. Is micro needling good for everyone?

Hemophilia Skin diseases, eczema, allergies, autoimmune diseases, current cold sores, history of cancer, tendency to keloid, current open wounds or infections

5 Whats the procedure like
Depending on the method applied, the area of the skin and device used, a micro-needling procedure lasts between 45-75minutes. For safety and precision, sterile needles with disposable tips are used in the procedure. To numb the any possible discomfort, a topical anesthetic cream is applied to the skin’s surface after makeup and cream residues have been removed off the skin. The Elanita will proceed to create tiny punctures on the intended sites with a dermapen. After which an ice pack, serum, and/or hydrating mask is placed over the operated surface.
It should be noted that in some instances, negligible pinpoint bleeding might occur which is nothing to worry about, as it can easily be controlled.
