About

Harness the power of nature with SQT biomicroneedling treatment at Ink Illusions. This revolutionary treatment offers gentle microneedling and exfoliation without any acids or needling machine for the skin, for a much safer approach to optimal skin health – and good for ALL skin types!

The freshwater sponge spicules are at the heart of SQT bio microneedling treatment,  and act as a siliceous microneedle. The minuscule needles which are not visible to the human eye gently stimulate the dermis and stimulate circulation. Other added active ingredients from the spicules are directly introduced to the dermis layer of the skin while basal skin cells are activated.

The natural siliceous microneedles appear as a fine power in the vial, which is then mixed in a serum.  These needles are naked to the eye, but under the microscope the spicules take on a sharp rod crystal form. During treatment the spicules are massaged and pressed in by hand into the treatment area, creating three to five million micro-channels in just 5-10 minutes.

A compromised skin barrier often results in heightened skin sensitivity and redness, making it prone to inflammation. Maintaining a robust barrier is vital for preventing skin issues. An impaired barrier accelerates collagen and moisture loss, leading to dryness and the appearance of fine lines. Conversely, a healthy skin barrier acts as a shield against external aggressors, such as UV damage, preventing pigmentation and dullness.

Frequently Asked Questions

SQT microneedling uses naturally forming siliceous crystals found in the freshwater sponge to create millions of microchannels in the dermis layers of the skin. This enhances the production of collagen and elastin while delivering vital nutrients to the skin to treat a variety of conditions and promote skin health.

At Élan we are open and honest about our treatment pricing. Check out our pricing table to find out more about our RF microneedling pricing.

SQT microneedling treatment can be used to maintain healthy skin and to treat a variety of skin concerns and conditions, including:

 

• Pigmentation & Melasma
• Sun damage
• Oily skin & large pores
• Skin redness & textural issues
• Acne Scarring
• Active Acne & Congestion
• Fine lines & Wrinkles
• Uneven skin tone and appearance
• Dandruff
• Sun Spots
• Improvement of P Acnes Bacteria
• Lifting, firming and collagen stimulating

Results times from SQT microneedling treatment can vary from person. It is possible for some people to see results shortly after the first treatment, but generally, optimal results are seen a few weeks after treatment. Collagen remodelling takes time so results will continue to improve over several months as new collagen forms.

The results from SQT microneedling treatment can be long lasting, but they are not considered permanent. SQT treatment stimulates the production of collagen which is vital for maintaining the smooth, plump appearance of skin. The natural ageing process of skin and environmental factors can affect skin over time. We recommend booking maintenance treatment sessions to sustain and enhance the results achieved through SQT microneedling.

We recommend a course of 4 sessions at intervals of 2 weeks to achieve long term results on the face. Depending on the condition and which body area is being treated, a course of 6-6 sessions may be required to achieve optimal results. Maintenance sessions are recommended every 8-12 weeks.

Freshwater sponges are living creatures and are crucial for aquatic ecosystems. Sponge spicules for our SQT treatments are sourced from a freshwater sponge lake in Dongjang in China. All spicules are 100% natural, 100% ecological, and vegan. The use of Spongilla spicules has been famous for centuries in skincare, dating back to the 18th century in Europe.

Spongilla Lacustris is the sponge species used for our SQT treatments, the sponge spicules are used by sponges as an external defence system. The spicules consist of calcium carbonate, silica, and Chitin. This makes the spicules a multifunctional skincare ingredient, providing skin with a range of natural benefits.

What is SQT Bio Microneedling?

SQL Bio Microneedling is Microneedling without a device!  No visible needles are involved.  It uses Sponge spicules.  Sponge spicules are a kind of siliceous bio microneedle that are extracted from the freshwater sponge. They can stimulate the dermis of the skin and start skin surface microcirculation. They effectively deliver active ingredients to the dermis layer of skin while also activating the basal skin cells.

SQT ANTI AGEING INGREDIENTS

Spongilla Spicules

SQT 99% pure spicules physically penetrate the top layers of the skin, carrying the active ingredients into the epidermis and dermis to target the source of concern. The spongy bone is used to stimulate the skin slightly, stimulate the division of basal mother cells, create millions of pores, and assist the introduction and absorption of active ingredients.

√ Penetrates the muscle base, starts subcutaneous microcirculation, and promotes metabolism.

Carnosine

Helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and improves skin tone and texture. Having Carnosine in your skincare can combat signs of aging by preventing cross-linking of collagen and other proteins which can cause a loss of elasticity.

Fibronectin

A humectant- an agent that draws and makes pools of water available for the skin.  Also moisturising the skin. Stimulates collagen regeneration, Enhances elastic fibers, Cleans skin free radicals, Promotes metabolism, and Accelerates skin repair.

Palmitoyl tripeptide-1

A synthetic fatty acid-linked peptide that can help repair visible skin damage and strengthen skin’s underlying supportive elements.

Palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7

A synthetic peptide made of four amino acids: glycine, glutamine, proline, and arginine sequence. These amino acids provide anti-aging effects by stimulating cell production and boosting the renewal process, working on the molecular levels in the skin layers.

Beta Glucan

Similar to hyaluronic acid, beta-glucans provide skin with deep hydration. They lock hydration in and prevent moisture loss which results in smoother and more supple skin. It can effectively increase epidermal growth factor (EGF) in aging skin and wrinkled skin, which will promote the increase of collagen and elastin in the skin, thereby improving skin appearance and eliminating wrinkles.

  • Anti-wrinkle and firming, activate immune active cells. Increases epidermal growth factors, promotes the increase of collagen and elastin in the skin, smoothes fine lines and enhances elasticity.

  • Repair damaged skin, has a significant anti-inflammatory effect on skin wounds, can improve the recovery function of damaged skin, and accelerate the healing of damaged skin.

  • Anti-allergic and anti-inflammatory, β-glucan can promote the proliferation of Langerhans cells to enhance the skin’s immunity, has significant anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic activities, and can help the skin resist various exogenous mechanical and chemical stimulations.

  • Water-locking and moisturizing, β-glucan is a natural polysaccharide, which can form a transparent, elastic and breathable film on the skin, lock in water, prevent water loss, and has high moisturizing properties, thus making the skin silky and hydrated.

Hydrolyzed Sodium Hyaluronate

Can reduce wrinkles and improve skin elasticity. In the epidermis, it is able to stimulate the production of HA the normal high molecular weight that is naturally found in the skin.

Polyglutamic Acid

Not as well-known as Hyaluronic Acid, however, Polyglutamic Acid, commonly abbreviated as “PGA,” is believed to have 4x greater moisture-retaining benefits than HA. If you have dull, dry, or dehydrated skin, this is the ingredient for you
