What is microneedling?
Revitalization technique without injection
With age the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid are less produced by the skin, although they are fundamental substances of the dermis. The consequences are:
- Appearance of wrinkles,
- Slackening of the skin,
- Loss of complexion radiance.
Before the only method to bring essential nutrients to the deep layers of the skin were injections of hyaluronic acid and anti-oxidant vitamins practiced by an anti-aging doctor (mesolift, skinbooste, etc.).
Today, there is a method without injections that can revitalize the skin and improve its texture.
What is microneedling?
Microneedling is a technique practiced on very specific areas of the skin that consists of making micro-perforations using an electric pen or a roller made up of micro-needles, creating a double stimulation of the skin:
– Creation by their passage on the skin of a mechanical stimulation that restarts the production of elastin and collagen in the dermis, which will redensify the skin.

– Création de mciro-canaux, qui permettent de délivrer auc couches superficielles du derme des principes actifs, tels que vitamine, acide hyaluronique, ou petide requis pour générer du collagène.
What distinguishes microneedling from mesotherapy (mesolift and skinbooster)::
Nombre de micro-perforations pour ce dernier est beaucoup plus important, et ceci sans injections.
How does a session take place?
- Application of an anesthetic cream approx. 60 min. beforehand,
- Application of a solution based on anti-ageing active ingredients (anti-oxidant vitamins, hyaluronic acid, peptides, etc.) to the area to be treated, preceded by thorough cleansing and disinfection of the skin.
- Treatment (electric pen or roller) on the surface of the area concerned.After the session, redness may occur on the treated area, but this fades fairly quickly.
Systematically provide sun protection to be applied in the following days.
Recommendation: Avoid all sources of heat for about 2 months: sun, hammam, sauna, swimming pool.
Which areas are affected?
Face: Action on the wrinkled aspect of the cheeks, dilated pores, sagging and brown spots.
Lip contour: Action on the wrinkles of the sun crease.
Eye contour: Action on crow’s-feet fine lines, bags and eyelid puffiness.
Neck and décolleté: Action on wrinkles and especially on skin texture.
Back of the hands: Action on brown spots, thin skin.
Arms: Action on sagging skin and crumpled appearance.
Belly : Action on stretch marks and sagging. It can be applied to all skin types, whatever the phototype (light or matt skin).
It is the reference treatment for skin texture.
A visible but discreet improvement of the radiance of the face, the texture and the densité́ of the skin as well as a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, especially in the cheeks.
The skin texture is finer, smoother and therefore the skin becomes firmer with a “lifting” effect.
Softer and more luminous skin.
The pores are tightened with a decrease in sebum production.
The appearance of stretch marks is amélioré́, this result will depend on the type of stretch marks and their age.
Rhythm of the sessions
It is recommended to practice 4 sessions spaced 15 days to 1 month apart depending on the skin and the indication.
A maintenance session once or twice a year is recommended. Systematically provide sun protection to be applied in the following days.
Precautions for use :
Do not microneedling on irritated skin. After the microneedling session, the treated area shows a slight redness that fades fairly quickly. Systematically provide sun protection to be applied in the following days.
It is recommandé́ to avoid, in the following 24 hours, all sources of heat: sun, hammam, sauna, swimming pool and not to apply any product or make-up (except a repairing balm).
Microneedling allows to act in a targeted way on strategic areas such as :
- The eye contour,
- Neck and cleavage,
- Back of your hands,
- The scalp,
- The belly,
- The inner side of the arms and thighs.
- There are rollerblades adapted to each area.
The ideal is to practice at least 3 sessions 2 or 3 weeks apart.
But one session from time to time could also be sufficient in certain very light cases, especially if it is associated with the radiofrequency treatment, which optimizes and potentiates the result and the effectiveness of both treatments. As far as close sessions are concerned, they will be practiced after important sun exposure (during summer holidays, stays in the mountains…), in case of important smoking, during cold winter and after menopause. Thus, the mesolift allows to moisturize the skin, stimulate its elasticity, illuminate the complexion.
Radiofrequency makes it possible to optimize and potentiate the result of both treatments, further improving elasticity
