Microneedling

Microneedling is a cosmetic process where very fine and short needles are inserted into the skin. At Clinica Jóia, our microneedling treatment is administered using the innovative Dermapen® which is an automated microneedling medical device with a disposable tip cartridge and made up of 12 micro-needles.

The stamping action of the Dermapen’s vertical tip creates invisible micro-injuries to the skin, while stimulating the skin’s natural ability to heal itself and increase the production of new collagen. In doing so, these micro-injuries encourage and harness the body’s innate ability to regrow and repair the skin, promoting a more radiant glow and an improvement in the skin’s youthful elasticity.

What It Entails

Using the cutting-edge Dermapen®, micro-sized needles are inserted into your skin at a perfect 90-degree angle. This ensures minimal discomfort and ultimate precision.

The needling process is typically accompanied by the administration of active ingredients through topical application, which the skin readily absorbs that to newly created micro-channels. This process is typically complimented with the administering of various depigmenting agents, hydrating ingredients – such as hyaluronic acid – and your very own platelet rich plasma.

How It Works

1.During the consultation

If you are interested in microneedling, you should start by booking a consultation with our clinic doctor. During the consultation, you will be able to express what you are looking to achieve and our doctor will be able to determine whether you are eligible to undergo this type of procedure after reviewing your medical history. If you are a viable candidate, our doctor will then discuss an appropriate treatment plan with you to achieve optimal results.

2.During the procedure

During the treatment itself, you will experience minimal discomfort (if any at all!) as the Dermapen® 's needles conveniently enter the skin at a perfect 90-degree angle. The use of the Dermapen® is followed by the topical application of active ingredients - such as depigmenting agents, hyaluronic acid, and your very own platelet rich plasma - which are more easily absorbed after undergoing microneedling. The overall length of the procedure always depends on the area being treated but, when the treatment is completed, you will quickly notice newly rejuvenated and plumper-looking skin.

3.After the treatment

Thanks to the innovative Dermapen® technology, very little downtime is required after this procedure. Nevertheless, post-treatment the skin channels will be completely open, so it is crucial that microneedling clients avoid using certain skin care products and limit their sun exposure to prevent harmful toxins from penetrating the skin. All of these guidelines are explained in more detail during the initial consultation and the treatment appointments themselves.

Frequently Asked Questions
