Microneedling involves puncturing the skin with small needles. As a result of these tiny abrasions, the skin pumps up your collagen production in order to heal itself. The treatment will take between 15 -30 minutes depending on your individual skins condition.
The benefits of Microneedling:
Reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Reduction in the appearance of wrinkles
Younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging
Reduced hyper-pigmentation and hypo-pigmentation
Reduction in the appearance of acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks
Fresher appearance or glow to the skin
How often to get a Microdneedling treatment?
Some of my clients only require a single Microneedling treatment, once per year to achieve their optimal results. However, everybody’s skin is different and is it is recommended for most of my clients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. For clients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 6-week intervals.
What to expect and recovery:
Immediately after a Microneedling treatment you will notice a redness (flushed appearance) to the skin. Individual healing times vary by depth of needles used and the number of overlapping passes that are performed. On average you can expect the redness to subside after 2 to 4 days. Some of my clients have healed completely in as little as 24 hours! We highly recommend utilizing high quality skincare products to help speed up the healing process, we will recommend the best products for your skin type and personal needs.
