MICRO VS. NANONEEDLING
The main difference between the two is the depth that the needles are able to penetrate into the skin. Nano-needling only punctures the first layer of the skin (epidermis) while micro-needling penetrates into the deep dermis.
- Medical procedure
- Creates micro-injuries for a wound healing response
- Treats through the epidermis down to the deep dermis
- Needle depth from 0.25 to 1.5mm
- Numbing cream required
- 24-48 hour downtime
- Cosmetic facial
- Infuses active serums through tiny nanochannels for increased effectiveness
- Treats in upper layers of the epidermis
- Microscopic silicone tips; 1/3 thickness of hair
- No numbing, downtime, or pain
This procedure uses an actual needle cartridge with 14 fine needles that can be adjusted to different depths. The micro-injuries caused by the procedure stimulate the body’s natural healing process, increasing collagen and elastin production to promote skin rejuvenation. These treatments can be done monthly.
Nanoneedling uses the same type of oscillating motion to treat the skin but the cartridge encompasses mono-crystalline silicone tips. These microscopic hair-like cones separate the cells within the epidermis to allow active serum infusion resulting in an immediate glow with NO downtime. This treatment can also be done as often as 10-14 days.
Which Treatment is Best for What Skin Condition?
Nano and Microneedling have their place in skin rejuvenation for almost every client and they treat many of the same skin conditions. Both treatments will have a positive effect in reducing the appearance of fine lines, improving skin tone and texture, minimizing the appearance of pores, reducing pigmentation, or helping to clear acne and acne scars. Both procedures have the ability to transform the look and feel of your skin!
When it comes to deeper acne scars and wrinkles the deeper micro- injuries associated with microneedling would be the best choice.
