Skin micro-needling treatments have minimal downtime which promotes scar-less healing and natural collagen production in the skin.
This treatment is great for skin rejuvenation, aging, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, acne scarring/general scarring, stretch marks, open pores, sun damage and pigmentation.
WHAT IS MICRO-NEEDLING?
Micro-needling is a powerful skin care treatment that’s proven to do the impossible — literally restoring skin to its youthful beauty in just a few treatments — without surgery and fewer side effects.
Beautiq is excited to offer this enhanced treatment for clients who want firmer skin, fewer wrinkles and lines, and a noticeable difference in areas disfigured by scarring. Micro-Needling also improves the appearance of acne, chicken pox scars, stretch marks, pigmentation, open pores, uneven skin tone, skin laxity and more.
WHO IS MICRO-NEEDLING SUITABLE FOR?
If you are unhappy with your skin, be it from old acne scars, age or sun spots, or the general fading of youth from your face, non-surgical facial rejuvenation is ideal. With Micro-needling, no surgery or recovery time is required and in just a few short treatments you will see remarkable results, not only will the increased elastin and collagen plump up your face, but old scars and marks will fade away too.
Micro-needling is also effective for alopecia and general hair regeneration*. The process works in much the same way; as the wound healing response takes place, it stimulates blood circulation and increases nutrients reaching the hair follicles, this combined with the stimulation of proteins in the area can result in new hair growth.
Micro-needling is suitable for:
Wrinkles and Fine Lines
Loss of Laxity
Uneven Skin Tone
* results may vary from person to person
HOW DOES MICRO-NEEDLING WORK?
The DPX5 is passed over the area to be treated, and inserts tiny needles into the skin, leaving minute puncture wounds. These tiny punctures trigger the body’s wound healing response and encourage the body to renew the skin cells in that area. While the body repairs the skin, it increases the production of collagen and elastin, immediately plumping the area, and causing a diminishment to wrinkles. As the body repairs the skin you will also see scarring, dark marks and sun damage decreasing.
It’s the DPX5's superior AOVN™ technology that allows for smooth, drag-less operation and optimal results. That’s because the DPX5 can produce over 1,300 micro holes in the skin per second, providing unsurpassed efficiency over more traditional micro-needling devices.
HOW DOES MICRO-NEEDLING HELP THE SKIN?
The tiny punctures in the skin’s surface cause micro-injuries, which in turn induce an immune response and the creation of new healthy collagen. In effect, the Micro-needling treatment signals the body to produce collagen to restore the damaged area. This tightens the skin making it look more radiant and youthful. It also reduces the appearance of wrinkles and scars.
An additional feature of the DPX5 is that the punctures also act as tiny conduits that carry hydrating nutrients down into skin layers. We apply Hyaluronic Acid skin care products to penetrate the skin more deeply and work harder for additional rejuvenation.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I HAVE A MICRO-NEEDLING TREATMENT?

We suggest you schedule a free consultation with us before treatment. After a careful skin analysis,
we’ll determine how you should prepare for the procedure.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT FROM A MICRO-NEEDLING TREATMENT?
You should experience an overall rejuvenation of the skin treated. This can show up as a decrease in fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, Rosacea, scarring, and hyperpigmentation, as well as an increase in overall skin elasticity.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TREATMENT?
For the most part, there is no downtime after your treatment. You may experience redness for 12-48 hours after the procedure, but most people are able to return quickly to their everyday activities.
We apply a breathable hyaluronic mask that will soothe the skin and help reduce redness. This makes it much
easier for you to return to work right away.
ARE THE TREATMENTS PAINFUL?
One of the benefits of the DPX5 is the increased comfort compared to older methods of micro needling, and so you should feel only minimal discomfort however it all depends on the individuals pain threshold. If you are worried about any pain, just ask your practitioner and she will be able to advise you on the best way to manage it.
