Microneedling is done using a hand-held device with 12 or more tiny needles at the tip; these microneedles make very small punctures in the skin in an evenly spaced manner. This process stimulates the natural healing process which increases collagen and elastin production. Collagen and elastin are the healthy building blocks of tight, evenly textured skin.
Anywhere on the body. Most commonly used on the face, neck, décolleté, hands and arms.
The appointments usually take 45 minutes to 75 minutes depending on the areas treated. Time includes topical numbing, skin preparation and post instructions.
Typically, makeup can be applied the next day. Skin may feel tight and itchy, similar to a sunburn for first 24 hours. Redness may last 12 to 48 hours.
Collagen stimulation takes 21 days to begin and results may take up to 6-8 weeks. Microneedling is a very safe and effective collagen stimulation procedure that is helpful in the overall anti-aging process. It is best effective in a series of treatments spaced apart by 6-8 weeks. We generally recommend 3-6 treatments. Consider adding Platelet Rich Plasma or Exosomes for an extra boost of growth factors to the microneedling treatments.
