This therapy, which is favoured by beauty experts all around the world, involves rolling a small roller made of microscopic needles across the skin’s surface. The roller causes micro-punctures in the skin, which encourages natural collagen renewal and regeneration.
This wound healing reaction increases the synthesis of new collagen and elastin, which helps to fill fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scarring. Pigmentation, increased pores, and stretch marks are all reduced as well.
Microneedling consists of very small, fine needles to roll over the skin and create tiny punctures on the superficial layer of the skin. In consequence, the body begins to stimulate new collagen and elastin which help promote skin growth, smoothness and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is very common for stretch marks, acne scarring and uneven skin textures.
Procedure time can vary between 30 minutes to 60 minutes based on the treatment area. We also like to provide our patients with the full facial experience. The procedure will also involve a gentle cleanse, as well as a hydrating peel and serum to leave the skin in a refreshed state.
Your skin will go red for 1-2 days post procedure, and it is best to stay out of direct sunlight for at least 5 days after the procedure, as your skin does become slightly weaker as it rebuilds.
Other than that, there is no other recovery or down time side effects. By the two days, your skin’s complexion will glow. It is most recommended to do this treatment every 4-6 weeks.
Although the tiny needles puncturing the skin only leaves mild discomfort, we offer our patients 3 levels of numbing cream or local anesthesia to help during the procedure.
We say just to be safe and take extra precautions. For 24 hours post your treatment:
- Avoid direct sunlight or exposure to UV
- Avoid swimming or immerse your face in salt water
- Avoid strenuous exercise
- Avoid make up on your face
All skin types are appropriate for this treatment. However it is not recommended for patients who have active acne. Best results appear 1-2 months after the initial four treatments.
Although microneedling is safe and effective, it is not recommended for pregnant women or patients using strong acne medications which cause additional sensitivity to the skin.
