Everything about Microneedling
You may already know that microneedling can smooth and rejuvenate your skin. It also prepares your skin to receive maximum benefits from any treatments you apply for several days after the procedure. Microneedling combines very well with medical-grade skincare products to give your skin a brighter, more youthful appearance.
WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?
Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, is a skin rejuvenation treatment that uses tiny needles to create micro-channels in the skin. These micro-channels trigger healing and repair processes that restore a younger-looking complexion.
HOW DOES MICRONEEDLING WORK FOR SKIN REJUVENATION?
Microneedling creates a series of micro-channels in the skin. This triggers a healing process, and collagen production. This new collagen restores youthful firmness and smoother texture.
WHAT TO PUT ON YOUR SKIN AFTER MICRONEEDLING
Microneedling will leave your skin sensitive for several days. These few days are the perfect time to treat your skin with high-quality skincare products to maximize the benefits of your treatment. During this period you should:
Avoid harsh scrubs or products
Only clean your skin with a professionally formulated cleanser
Apply targeted skincare serums that will penetrate deeply into your skin
Keep your skin well-hydrated with a gentle moisturizer
Apply medical-grade sun protection
Your provider can help you choose the best products for your skin. We carry professional skincare products proven to aid in skin rejuvenation. They are also gentle enough for the skin just after microneedling and other treatments.
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME WITH MICRONEEDLING?
You might notice some sensitivity, swelling, or small spots for one to three days after the treatment. You can resume your usual activities next day. While microneedling requires no downtime, we recommend adequate skincare to achieve your best results.
WHAT RESULTS WILL I SEE AFTER MICRONEEDLING?
You will start to see results within a few weeks of your first treatment. Your results will continue to improve for about three months. The number of treatments needed depends on the conditions you want to address. Microneedling results usually last about a year, and many people have yearly maintenance treatments to maintain their skin’s firmness and smoothness.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR MICRONEEDLING?
Microneedling is safe for all skin types and tones. Good candidates want to rejuvenate their skin and see improvements in tone or texture. You might need to wait if you have an active skin condition affecting your face. You should let your provider know if you have a history of forming abnormal scars.
