Microneedling is based on the use of tiny needles to create micro channels (tiny holes) in the skin. The treatment uses the skin’s ability to heal itself. It is for the appearance of aging, scarring, stretch marks and pigmentation marks from acne and sun damage. The result is improved skin tone and texture.
What are the benefits of Microneedling?
Microneedling is a gentler anti-aging therapy than other forms of skin resurfacing, and by encouraging your skin’s natural production of collagen and elastin, can actually stimulate your skin’s amazing ability to heal itself, reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles, sun spots, scars, and other signs of aging. This incredible, long-lasting solution works in conjunction with your body’s natural rejuvenation process, and greatly facilitates the healing impact of topical creams, gels, and serums by enabling them to penetrate deep into the skin, for healthy, well-nourished, naturally-beautiful skin!
Microneedling is a great solution for patients who want to find a happy medium between mild chemical peels and more involved laser resurfacing.
How soon will I notice results from Microneedling?
Following a series of 3 to 6 microneedling treatments spaced approximately every 4 to 6 weeks, you should see firmer, lifted, naturally rejuvenated skin in the treated areas. We will develop a treatment regimen customized to your skin’s unique needs to help minimize pore size, improve the appearance of preexisting scars and reduce the appearance of sun spots and melasma.
How soon will I notice results from Dermaplaning?
Microneedling is a quick treatment that doesn’t require incisions or downtime. You may notice some minimal discomfort during your session, and your skin may look red (like a mild sunburn) or feel warm, rough or tight during the first 3 to 7 days following treatment. A topical hydrating gel is usually applied 30 to 60 minutes before treatment to ensure maximum comfort and to maximize the rejuvenating effects of the treatment.
