A brief introduction to Microneedling

Microneedling is a minimally invasive beauty treatment that can be used to improve the appearance of the skin. During a microneedling treatment, tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin. This triggers the body’s natural healing response, which leads to collagen and elastin, two proteins essential for maintaining youthful skin. These microneedles can be used to deliver topical treatments such as skincare products that stimulate collagen and elastin production. As a result, the skin looks smoother and firmer, and any scars or blemishes are reduced in appearance. Microneedling can also help improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks.

How is Microneedling performed?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive in-office procedure that uses tiny needles to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin. These micro-injuries trigger the body’s natural wound healing process, leading to new collagen and elastin production. As a result, microneedling can improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks.

How long do results from a Microneedling treatment last?

The results from a Microneedling treatment typically last around six months, but this varies depending on the individual. The treatment causes the skin to produce more collagen, which helps to keep the skin looking younger and more elastic. Some people have reported that their skin is still looking great after six months, while others say they see some fading of the effects within 2-3 weeks.

For best results from Microneedling

If you're using intense topical treatments (such as those containing retinol), you should stop using them a few days before your microneedling treatment. Harsh products could aggravate the skin, so it's better to use milder ones. Be sure to arrive at your appointment with clean and dry skin (if not, the technician will wash your face before performing the procedure). Then you'll be slathered in a numbing substance, making it so you won't feel the pain as intensely.

How long does a Microneedling treatment take?

The treatment typically takes about 30 minutes, and you may need a series of treatments for optimal results. The length of time it takes to complete a microneedling treatment will vary depending on the size and severity of the area being treated—Consult with one of our professionals.

What are the risks of Microneedling?

While microneedling is generally considered safe, some potential side effects can occur. Book a free consultation with one of our professionals to make sure you understand the risks and benefits involved.

There are a few risks associated with microneedling that you should be aware of before deciding to proceed with the procedure. First and foremost, microneedling can cause skin irritation and inflammation. In some cases, this can lead to permanent scarring. Additionally, microneedling can also increase your risk of skin cancer, particularly if you have a history of sunburns. It’s important to remember that sunscreen should be used daily when undergoing any kind of skin treatment, including microneedling.

You may not be an ideal candidate for microneedling if you:

  • are pregnant
  • have certain skin diseases, such as psoriasis or eczema
  • have open wounds
  • have had radiation therapy recently
  • have a history of skin scars
