Micro-needling is a fractional micro-needling device that works to tighten, lift and rejuvenate the skin. It's effective in reducing fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, surgical and acne scars. Fractional micro-needling or collagen induction therapy (CIT) uses needles to pierce the skin in a controlled and precise pattern. Compared to other skin rejuvenation treatments, Micro-needling is safe on any skin type, has short treatment time and minimal discomfort with virtually no downtime. Glam body utilizes pure vitamin C in place of PRP with excellent results.

HOW DOES MICRONEEDLING WORK?
An automated device with a disposable tip cartridge, that uses 11-56 micro-needles is used to vertically stamp the skin at high speed. The stamping action of the the pen's vertical tip creates micro-injuries to the skin, stimulating new collagen production. In doing so, these micro-injuries encourage and harness the body's innate ability to regrow and repair the skin through normal physiological processes.
The derma pen is as safe and as effective as a fractional laser or intense pulsed light but with a significantly shorter recovery period. All skin types can be treated using the derma pen..
You can choose to treat your face, neck, decollete, or any area of concern.
HOW MANY MICRONEEDLING TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Benefits of the Micro-needling can be seen after just one treatment. It is recommended that you schedule 3 to 6 treatments, spaced out between 3 to 4 weeks for maximum results. In cases where a more aggressive treatment schedule is needed such as scar revision, a greater number of treatments may be necessary for maximum results. Your Glam Body skin care specialist will consult with you and prepare a package and regime specifically for your skin type and concern.
Glam Body offers single sessions or packages of 3 or 6 sessions.
HOW MANY MICRONEEDLING TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
After your Micro-needling treatment, please be aware and observe the following:
Immediately after your treatment, you will look as though you have a moderate to severe sunburn and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. This is normal and will subside after 1 to 2 hours and will normally recover within the same day or 24 hours. You may see slight redness after 24 hours but only in minimal areas or spots.
Your technician will suggest post-procedure skincare after the procedure to help soothe, calm and protect the skin. Continue to use for 3 days. Active skincare can be resumed again after Day 3.
BEFORE STARTING YOUR DERMAPEN MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT SERIES PLEASE ADHERE TO THE FOLLOWING:
Prior to Treatment:
No Retin-A products or applications 12 hours prior to your treatment.
No auto-immune therapies or products 12 hours prior to your treatment.
No prolonged sun exposure to the face 24 hours prior to your treatment. A Micro-Needling treatment will not be administered on sunburned skin.
If an active or extreme breakout occurs before treatment, please consult your practitioner.
CLEAN – Use a soothing cleanser or face wash with tepid water to cleanse the face for the following 48 hours and gently dry the treated skin. Always make sure that your hands are clean when touching the treated area.
HEAL – Copper-based skincare is recommended post-treatment as the mineral properties are ideal to help heal the skin, but will also create a sterile skin, too. Resveratrol-based products can help soothe the skin and lessen irritation.
HYDRATE – Following your treatment, your skin may feel drier than normal. Hyaluronic Acid is an ideal ingredient to hydrate and restore the skin back to perfect balance. Glam Body has an amazing serum for purchase.
STIMULATE – In the days following your treatment, and as the skin starts to regenerate, collagen stimulating peptides are ideal to continue the stimulation.
MAKEUP – It is recommended that makeup should not be applied for 12 hours after the procedure. Do not apply any makeup with a makeup brush, especially if it is not clean.
PROTECT – Immediately after the procedure, apply a broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen with a SPF30. A chemical-free sunscreen is highly recommended.
What to Avoid:
To ensure the proper healing environment, be certain to observe the following:
For at least 2 hours post treatment, do NOT use any Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Beta Hydroxy Acid, Retinol (Vitamin A), Vitamin C (in a low pH formula) or anything perceived as 'active' skincare.
Avoid intentional and direct sunlight for 24 hours. No tanning beds.
Do not go swimming for at least 24 hours post-treatment.
No exercising or strenuous activity for the first 24 hours post-treatment. Sweating and gym environments are harmful, rife with bacteria, and may cause adverse reactions.
Cumulative results enable continuing rejuvenation for healthy-looking skin.
Target problem areas such as fine lines around the lips, eyes and frown lines.
Reduce the appearance of scars or skin damage, such as acne scars and stretch marks on the face or body.
