For some time now, we’ve watched micro-needling grow in popularity, both in the clinic or med spa, and at home, thanks to a new crop of needling devices. While micro-needling is already well regarded as a fast and simple method for improving skin texture, physicians and patients now have the opportunity to boost the results of each micro-needling session with the use of CALECIM® Professional Serum.

How CALECIM® Professional Serum works to transform skin: The Secret is In Powerful Stem Cell Derived Growth Factors

CALECIM® Professional Serum contains 80% CALECIM® conditioned media derived from cord-lining extract, which has powerfully charged active ingredients that strengthen, protect, and rejuvenate skin. The product of a decade of stem cell research, CALECIM® conditioned media delivers naturally occurring hyaluronic acid, soluble collagen, fibronectin and active proteins into the dermis to initiate immediate skin regeneration processes. This is done via powerful growth factors and cytokines in the conditioned media, which relay ‘youth messages’ directly to skin cells, stimulating them to restore and repair themselves.

Since its launch, CALECIM® has surpassed expectations in clinical trials and has quickly become physicians’ after-care serum of choice, thanks to its clinically observed and fast-acting capabilities.

Why CALECIM® and microneedling are a natural fit

Micro-needling—where the skin is punctured with tiny needles to stimulate new collagen generation in microscopic wounds—is on the rise thanks to its immediate and long-term benefits. These days, special skin needling models let patients experience some of these benefits at home and offer a more effective means of delivering topical agents to the skin on a regular basis.

Medical aestheticians believe that the needles create ‘controlled skin injury’, and the body repairs these microscopic wounds by producing new skin cells, collagen, and elastin. Through this process, it is believed that there is an improvement in skin texture and firmness. Reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks are among the visible benefits observed by patients.

So, how does Professional Serum pair with and multiply the effects of microneedling?

Within the clinic, physicians using Professional Serum as a post-procedure salve will find that it reduces swelling, redness, and discomfort in a very short time, offering fast relief. Patients can look forward to less downtime and see the results of their treatment sooner. Doctors also realize that post treatment, the skin is in a good state to absorb nutrients in topical products such as CALECIM® Serum, which is why it is now widely used in conjunction with in-clinic procedures as an effective and powerful treatment protocol.

When potent ingredients, such as the regenerating cord lining extracts are used post-procedure, it can also aid in the physiological healing processes that physical procedures such as micro-needling initiate, leading to improved aesthetic results for the patient.

Used as part of a home-care regimen in combination with CALECIM® Professional Multi-Action Cream, patients can enhance the results of their in-clinic micro-needling session and see improved benefits beyond what micro-needling itself can produce.

For those who would like to conduct micro-needling at home, using CALECIM® Professional Serum together with the procedure means deeper penetration and absorption of essential nutrients that can dramatically improve the skin’s appearance. By applying CALECIM® Professional Serum after needling, the active proteins in CALECIM® conditioned media are funneled directly into the dermis, where they immediately communicate with skin cells to begin the restoration process. On top of this, fast healing, powerful ingredients in the serum, such as active glycoproteins, take the anti-aging effects of micro-needling to the next level.

What’s the best way to apply Stem Cell Therapy in tandem with microneedling?

After a micro-needling procedure, we recommend physicians apply Professional Serum in sequence to facial aesthetic zones for uniform coverage. Then, gently rub the serum into the skin using small circular motions until it’s fully absorbed. The patient should be instructed to use four full pipettes after a gentle cleanser, on the morning and evening of the next day.

For those using at-home needling devices, it’s important to follow the device instructions and be sure the roller is sterilized and there is no active acne on the treated area before you begin. After needling, apply four full pipettes of Professional Serum to each aesthetic facial zone, using small circular movements and focusing on full coverage. Follow this by four full pipettes of serum the morning after your session. Be sure to use the full ampule of serum within two days to ensure optimal freshness of the active proteins inside.

Note: If you have CALECIM® Professional Multi-Action Cream, take care not to use it immediately after a needling session. You will be able to resume your CALECIM® Professional Multi-Action Cream regime the next day.

For both in-clinic and at-home needling sessions, patients can maximize and maintain their results by using CALECIM® Restorative Hydration Cream or CALECIM® Professional Multi-Action Cream on an ongoing basis; ensuring that the firming, tightening, and smoothening effects of your treatment are prolonged.
