Microneedling uses a pen with tiny needles to stimulate collagen production in the skin. A numbing cream is applied prior to the procedure.
Super effective in addressing acne scarring and other scars on your skin. The only type of scar not possible to treat with microneedling is keloid or raised scars.
Aging doesn’t just show up as wrinkles and discoloration. As you get older, your skin loses its elasticity, so it appears lax. Aging skin may also look dull and lack a lustrous glow. Microneedling can change this as the build-up of collagen that occurs in response to the treatment can improve skin structure to fight sagging. Plus, just 24 hours following a session, you experience a radiant, fresh glow.
Sun Damage or Pigmentation
Microneedling is effective in reducing the appearance of sun damage, particularly hyperpigmentation and age spots. If you have a blotchy, brownish complexion, which is probably a result of too many days in direct sun, microneedling and its ability to stimulate new collagen and skin cells can reinvigorate your look and even out your tone.
Even though microneedling creates tiny insertions in your skin, it doesn’t increase the size of your pores. In fact, it helps your pores appear much smaller. When the collagen around your pores is stimulated, the area around each pore plumps, making the pore itself almost disappear.
Improves effectiveness of topical products
Post microneedling is the prime time to apply anti-aging treatments, moisturizers, and other topical treatments that boost skin health and appearance. The micro-holes receive creams, serums, and gels more readily and deliver them deeper into your dermis than when applied regularly.
You can enjoy a glowing complexion 24-72 hours after microneedling. Your recovery may take 7 to 10 days depending on your body’s response. The amount sessions needed, will vary depending on your concern.
It is safe for most people, however if you have an infection or history of abnormal healing, we may need to adapt your treatment plan.
