What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a non-surgical, transformative treatment that uses tiny needles to trigger collagen and elastin production deep within the skin. This stimulates the skin’s natural healing and rebuilding properties. Microneedling restores and rebuilds skin for a fresh complexion.
What skin conditions does it treat?
Microneedling does it all. This gentle, non-invasive treatment can treat fine lines, scarring, uneven skin tone and texture, pigmentation and more.
How does it work?
Microneedling uses tiny needles to create micro-wounds that trigger collagen and elastin production deep within the skin. This stimulates the skin’s natural healing and rebuilding properties to uncover a new canvas.
What is a microneedling procedure like?
During treatment, tiny micro-punctures activate your body’s natural healing and rebuilding process to reconstruct skin. We’ll clean and prepare your skin, prioritizing your comfort and talking you through the procedure. You may feel some discomfort, but the needles are so tiny that most patients don’t experience any pain. Your skin therapist will work with you to maximize your comfort level. Prior to the procedure, your provider will apply a numbing cream to the treatment area to increase comfort during your treatment.
How many microneedling treatments will I need?
Patients typically need 4-6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart, to achieve optimal results. Most patients report seeing improvements after the second treatment. Optimal results are achieved around three months after the last treatment as collagen production progresses.
How long does a treatment last?
Results vary based on the individual and continue to improve for several months as collagen production increases. To maintain results, we recommend maintenance treatments every 12-18 months.
What can I expect after my procedure?
After the treatment, an ointment will be applied to the skin and you will be asked to refrain from wearing make up for several hours. Any minor redness or swelling resulting from your treatment will subside within 12-24 hours. After the treatment, you can expect to return to normal activities.
