What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a medical treatment to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. This procedure will decrease the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and minimize large pores. During treatment, a tool will create small, micro injuries in the top layers of the skin to stimulate collagen. This also allows serums to reach the deeper layers of the dermis for better absorption.
Who is a Candidate?
Individuals who wish to achieve thicker, firmer skin, and reduce the appearance of cellulite, stretch marks, acne scars, or pigmentation issues can often benefit from microneedling. A consultation with one of our skincare experts can help to determine if this treatment is right for you.
Results and Recovery
Following treatment, mild swelling and redness may occur. Patients should avoid the sun for 48 hours, and wear a sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher for at least two weeks following treatment. Avoid applying makeup for the first 24 hours; after that, you can feel free to apply makeup, lotions, and other products as usual. It can take up to four weeks after treatment for results to become visible.
