TIRED SKIN AFTER THIS FESTIVE SEASON ?? HOW TO REPAIR & SHINE W/ MAISON LUTÉTIA & MICRONEEDLING
MICRONEEDLING AT MAISON LUTÉTIA
If you’ve been following my treatments at Maison Lutétia in Paris, then you’ll know why I tried something new this time, specifically microneedling.
After my successful treatments with Mesotherapy, I wanted to try microneedling as I had heard so much about it.
For those who haven’t read about my previous treatments, I’ll briefly explain why I was so interested in trying it. After periods of heavy stress, I suddenly developed severe skin problems with blemishes and annoying spots that left their mark.
In addition, my skin is often exposed to the sun and unfortunately, as I get older, I realise that my skin has suffered as a result.
Microneedling not only helps with wrinkles, stretch marks and scars, but also with acne and large pores, for example. The regeneration and blood circulation of the skin is stimulated.
Not only collagen, but also hyaluronic acid is newly formed. Another advantage of microneedling treatment is that the pores are refined and the skin is tightened. This makes the skin appear smoother and fuller.
In the case of existing scars, for example those caused by acne, the collagen fills the scar area again. As a result, the scars become smaller from time to time and the skin’s appearance improves. Anyone who suffers from skin problems or wants to look younger and fresher should really consider this treatment.
Particularly good results are achieved in the following areas of application:
- Scars (acne scars, surgical scars, burn scars, etc.)
- Pigmentation disorders
- Stretch marks/pregnancy marks
- Scalp problems and hair loss
Usually the face, neck and décolleté are treated, but I had decided in favour of the face because of the reasons mentioned above. I mainly decided to do this at Maison Lutétia because I have had my best experiences there when it comes to beauty treatments. On top of that, the place is just a dream…
A treatment takes up so 20-30, where the micro-perforations created by the 16 micro-needles stimulate the skin’s self-healing process, tightening pores, renewing cells and boosting elastin production. Magic isn’t it? The key to the protocol is improved skin quality and a face that looks as good as new! I had 3 treatments and my skin is now tighter and I look less tired. I had little scars that vanished too and on top of it there is a certain glow that comes naturally.
WHAT ARE THE STEPS?
Here we go !
Step 1: Application of a peel adapted to your needs on your purified skin
After removing all traces of make-up and cleansing the area to be treated, the practitioner exfoliates the skin using a purifying agent to purify the epidermis, remove all dead cells and allow the active ingredients to penetrate more easily. Depending on the indication, a peel is applied to optimise the effects of the treatment and activate the cell renewal and rejuvenation process.
Step 2: Passing through the handpiece to trigger the skin’s self-healing process
Armed with the device, the practitioner scans the entire face to create micro-perforations in the skin, which will encourage the skin to renew itself. The production of elastin, fibroblasts and collagen, responsible for the skin’s elasticity and firmness, is boosted, making the dermis denser and improving its quality.
Either a radiance-boosting treatment with hydrating hyaluronic acid, zinc and vitamin B5 is then applied, or a treatment that activates cell renewal to erase pigmentation marks, wrinkles and scars. The micro-needles create channels that facilitate the passage of the active ingredients into the dermis.
Step 3: Reinforce the skin’s barrier functions with a moisturising mask and sun protection
On the face, the treatment continues with the application of a mask soaked in hydrating hyaluronic acid, combining deep hydration and reinforcement of the skin’s barrier function. Finally, an SFP50 repair cream is applied to the treated area!
THIS TREATMENT IS FOR YOU IF:
Your skin lacks density
You’ve had enough of your dull skin
You have pimples and other imperfections (stretch marks, acne scars, spots, etc.)
You want to reduce wrinkles
You want your skin to be more toned
You want to improve the quality of your skin
PERHAPS CHOOSE ANOTHER TREATMENT IF:

You have a skin condition or a history of autoimmune disease or arrhythmia
You are taking anti-coagulants
Your skin is tanned after a holiday in the sun
You have herpes
You have an open wound
HOW TO PRESERVE YOUR NEW SKIN QUALITY:
After your session (which can hurt a little bit in the moment), your skin shows signs of redness, like a sunburn or a rosy complexion after a good session of sport! Until the next day, don’t wear make-up and avoid kissing! (No joke 🙂
Change your sheets, pillowcase and bathroom linen to preserve the effects of microneedling. For 7 days, avoid exfoliants and scrubs to avoid damaging the skin.
And for the next few days, avoid steam baths, swimming pools and activities that cause excessive sweating, and apply an anti-UV SPF 50 cream to protect yourself.
A protocol of 3 to 6 sessions for the face and 6 to 12 for stretch marks is recommended.
– A rejuvenating effect
– Improved skin texture
– More supple, elastic skin – Regulated sebum production – A radiant complexion!
