What is Nanoneedling?
Nano Needling has arrived in Scottsdale! Nano Needling is a cosmetic treatment vs. a medical treatment such as Microneedling. Nano Needling is a pain-free method of stimulating the skin by infusing active ingredients into the upper layers of the epidermis. This is done using microscopic Nano Needling tips that are thinner than a human hair. This unique design enables a high degree of product absorption that stimulates collagen and elastin production.
Who is Nano Needling Good For?
Nano Needling is an effective, pain-free cosmetic treatment to reduce fine lines, acne scars, and large pores by improving the overall skin tone and texture and stimulating the production of collagen.
Nano Needling is good for almost all skin tones and types! This is exciting for those of us who are African American, African, Latin, Hispanic, Native American, Indian, Middle Eastern, Asian ancestry and people of mixed ethnicities who may not be able to safely utilize more aggressive skin care treatments.
A few exceptions: Nano Needling is contraindicated for those with active acne, currently pregnant, or those who have had BOTOX or other fillers in the two weeks prior to treatment. Additionally, Nano Needling may exacerbate rosacea, so caution should be exercised if you suffer from this condition.
What is the difference between Microneedling and Nanoneedling?
As you may know, both microneedling and nanoneedling promote skin cell turnover, deliver serum infusion into the skin, stimulate the healing process, and improve fine lines, wrinkles, and superficial acne scars without downtime.
Microneedling is a medical treatment and nanoneedling is a cosmetic facial treatment.
Nano needling is NOT going to address deep wrinkles or loss of elasticity. Nano needling will do little for deep acne scars, stretch marks, or surgical scars (for example, tummy tuck scars).
