Microneedling is a collection of “micro needles” (very small needles) that create a “damage response” to the skin. This allows the body to create NEW, younger skin as well as boost in collagen production. Depth and speed vary depending on your skin’s needs.
Who is a good candidate for Microneedling?
Men or women, teens and adults.
Those with scarring, fine lines/wrinkles, loose skin, uneven texture, large pores, pigmentation, preventative aging, and stretch marks
When/ how often should I get treatments?
A series of 3-6 treatments are recommended 2-4 weeks apart for optimal results. With proper at home skincare, you will continue to see improvements for the next 6 months post treatment. Maintenance treatments are recommended a few times a year to keep collagen synthesis present and active.
How do I prepare for my treatment?
Avoid exfoliating products and treatments for 2 days before your treatment. Often times, “pre conditioning”. This is the process of using retinols, tretinoin, or skin brighteners 4-6 weeks before your treatment for optimal results.
How should I expect to feel after my treatment?
Your skin will be very red immediately post treatment. This may last 24-48 hours. You can apply makeup 6 hours post-treatment and will be given specific post-care instructions at your appointment.
