Microneedling is based on the principals of acupuncture and mesotherapy. Allegra performs holistic microneedling using a roller with very tiny needles ranging between 0.5mm and 1mm. The microneedle roller is rolled over the skin creating microscopic punctures in the epidermis and dermis that encourage collagen induction using the skin’s natural healing response. In addition, transdermal absorption is significantly increased permitting vital nutrients to be absorbed into the deeper layers of the skin known as a form of mesotherapy. A numbing cream is not necessary with holistic microneedling as there is minimal discomfort using a shorter needle length.
Microneedling does not damage the skin but causes a micro injury that the body recognizes and then repairs by removing old damaged collagen and replacing it with a new collagen matrix leading to a thicker, healthier skin over the course of several months. The natural healing process makes microneedling so effective and the results just get better over time.
