What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling has been around for decades, but with the latest advancements, the procedure has revolutionized the way we think about total skin rejuvenation. Almost no complexion issue is too big or too small to be addressed with minimally-invasive microneedling treatments. Men and women can improve the overall tone and texture of their skin without any downtime.
How Does It Work?
Your skin care specialist will use a handheld microneedling device to create micro-channels at precise depths below the surface of the skin. These channels trigger your body’s natural self-healing process. Beneficial collagen and elastin are immediately sent to help repair the damaged tissue and keep skin looking young and fresh.
Am I A Good Candidate?
Nearly anyone could potentially be a good candidate for microneedling. It’s minimally-invasive and is safe and effective for all skin types. Microneedling is great for both anti-aging treatments and preventative care. If you’re ready to boost your skin’s long-term health, microneedling treatments might be right for you.
How Long Does Treatment Take?
Microneedling treatments are fairly quick and can often be done during your lunch break. Depending on the area being treated, the actual procedure can take as little as 30-minutes. You’ll need to prepare to arrive slightly early for the application of a topical anesthetic that will keep you comfortable throughout treatment.
What Results Will I See?*
Initial results can be seen just several days post-treatment as skin cells start to self-repair. Final results won’t be seen until 2-4 weeks with the emergence of fresh, healthy skin. While one microneedling treatment can produce noticeable results, most patients need at least 4-sessions to achieve their desired outcome.
Is There Any Downtime?
There is no downtime necessary with microneedling. Pending you avoid extreme sun exposure, you can return to work or home immediately. You may experience minor redness or irritation several days following your in-office procedure.
