Microneedling uses a special device with tiny needles to prick the skin to create micro-injuries that are not visible to the naked eye. This process invokes the body’s natural healing response and collagen production.
A special device containing tiny needles penetrates the top layer of skin, which triggers the exfoliation process and stimulates the production of new collagen. The new collagen repairs the skin, while the excess collagen strengthens the skin.
For melasma and scarring, treatments are recommended every 4-6 weeks for best results. For an age-management, treatment is recommended every 12 weeks.
From start to finish, your appointment will take around two hours. After that, you will have to wait for your skin to be cleansed and the topical anesthetic cream to take effect before we can begin your procedure.
Microneedling can be beneficial for the face, neck, and décolleté. In addition, it can be helpful for anyone looking for a non-invasive procedure to improve acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, and texture issues with little to no downtime.
We use a topical anesthetic cream before the procedure to make the patient more comfortable. You can experience mild redness and swell for 24-48 hours post-treatment. Allow a minimum of 2 weeks ahead of any events/vacations.
