Reveal Youthful Skin
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure using thin needles. The procedure can help reduce the appearance of skin concerns such as acne scars, stretch marks or wrinkles. Most people get microneedling for cosmetic purposes, but it can also help with some medical conditions.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling uses multiple fine-gauge needles to safely and effectively create micro-channels in the needed areas of the skin. This process triggers the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, two nutrients that enhance the overall health and appearance of your skin.
Each patient is numbed 20-25 minutes prior to treatment to ensure patient is comfortable. Great treatment for acne marks & scars, large pores, fine lines & wrinkles, uneven skin tone, aging skin, dull skin and stretch marks and may help improve the appearance of:
Fine lines or wrinkles
Loose or crepey (thin and wrinkled) skin.
Mild scars, especially those from acne or burns
Skin discoloration or uneven skin tone.
Who is a Candidate for Microneedling?
Microneedling is a relatively simple and fast method for safely treating fine lines, wrinkles, and scars. Because the epidermis remains intact, the procedure can be repeated safely and is also suited to regions where laser treatments and deep chemical peels are not typically performed, such as around the eyes and mouth, hands, and chest.
This makes microneedling a preferred treatment for nearly everyone. Fitzpatrick skin types V-VI should consult with an experienced practitioner prior to receiving medical grade microneedling (1.5 mm-3 mm) to avoid triggering a pigment response in the skin.
As with most in-office procedures, microneedling will increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun. It is best to schedule microneedling sessions during times when sun exposure will be minimal.
When scheduling your procedure, it is important to remember that while you may see results after one session, it is generally recommended that microneedling be completed in a series of 3-5 treatments every 4-6 weeks, followed by a maintenance program. The frequency of treatments depends upon the desired effect and needle length used. Your skincare professional will work with you to design a treatment plan specifically for your skin.
