You Have Questions – We Have Answers

How Does It Work

Microneedling also known as collagen induction therapy involves using a device that has tiny fine needles to create hundreds of invisible puncture wounds. This prompts the skin to stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process, resulting in cell turnover, increased collagen and elastin production therefore reversing as well as preventing signs of aging.

What It Targets

The primary appeal of microneedling is its ability to stimulate growth of collagen and elastin which is the key to youthful looking skin. With it’s ability to trigger the generation of new skin cells, a few sessions will noticeably reduce deep wrinkles, acne scars, pigmentation issues, scars from trauma or incisions, crow’s feet and fine lines, and overall skin health. This treatment is not just for the face either, it can be used on neck, chest scars, stretch marks and more. During the personal consultation appointment, we can discuss customize microneedling to suite your needs and desired results.

Who Would Be An Ideal Candidate

Unlike lasers, IPL or chemical peels, microneedling can benefit ALL SKIN TYPES without fear of hypopigmentation, hyperpigmentation or burning.

It may not be the best option for you if you are pregnant, used accutane in the past year, have undergone skin radiation in the last 12 months, or if you are prone to keloids.

Treatment Experience – How Does It Feel

The microneedling treatment itself is not painful and most clients have a comfortable experience. We apply numbing cream to the area 30 minutes prior to treatment to ensure ultimate comfort and ease.

Downtime & Aftercare Recovery

Downtime is minimal, making this the perfect treatment for those who want to rejuvenate their skin effectively without surgery or significant recovery time. The face may be red (equivalent to a sunburn) for 3 to 6 days following treatment. You may use a medium coverage makeup to camouflage the redness 24 hours post treatment. A few days following treatment, you may experience skin tightness, dryness, and some slight itchiness. It is important to keep your skin hydrated during recovery as moist, hydrated skin speeds up the healing process. We recommend hyaluronic acid and some antioxidant serums to use and assist in the healing process. Exercise may be resumed 1 to 2 days after treatment or as advised.

Visible Results

While each person’s skin is different, clients typically begin to see results after the first treatment. Optimal, long lasting results will be visible after a series of 4 to 6 treatments, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. Microneedling results are cumulative and your skincare professional will work with you to establish a microneedling treatment plan that addresses your skin’s unique needs.
