JULY 2019 SPECIAL: Microneedling With Amiea Med And Hyalual Hyaluronic Acid
The quest for perfect, flawless skin is very popular amongst advancing men and women. An up-and-coming key ingredient within many beauty products is Hyaluronic Acid. Yet, a great deal of consumers still want to know what Hyaluronic Acid is. Simply put, Hyaluronic Acid or HA is a chemical material that our body creates from its tissues and uses as a lubricant.
Today, Hyaluronic Acid is synthesized artificially, and, because of its great qualities, it’s added into various anti-aging and cosmetic formulas. A quick glance at a beauty counter will reveal many products ranging from lotions and serums to creams and supplements that contain hyaluronic acid. When talking about Hyaluronic Acid, it’s important to consider the advantages of different application techniques. We’re here to give you some insight on the benefits of microneedling, specifically with Hyaluronic Acid
Microneedling with Hyaluronic Acid
Collagen Induction Therapy, which is commonly known as microneedling, is a technique that involves the use of needles to form tiny, near invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of the skin. While the thought of tiny needles causing multiple superficial skin wounds simultaneously may not sound alluring, you can rest assured that this treatment is minimally invasive, causes only mild discomfort, and is incredibly efficient. Microneedling is done by the use of a roller, which is essentially a handheld roller with tiny needles, or a specialized pen, which usually offers greater control for the operator to treat smaller areas.
So, why would you want to induce tiny wounds on the surface of your skin in the first place? The answer is surprisingly simple. These tiny wounds stimulate and accelerate the body’s healing process by means of producing elastin, increasing collagen concentration, and boosting overall cell turnover. Microneedling has been utilized in aesthetic clinics for several years now and has become increasingly popular as a skin rejuvenation solution for its ability to non-surgically improve the look and feel of the skin without disrupting normal activities or requiring extensive healing time.

Microneedling Hyaluronic Acid allows for better, faster absorption by opening a vast number of micro-channels in the skin –giving you enhanced results. When used together, Hyaluronic Acid and Microneedling result in increased volume and diminished visible signs of aging by revealing smoother and tighter skin.
