Microneedling works by encouraging your skin to make more collagen. The idea is that pinpricks from the procedure cause slight injury to the skin and that the skin responds by making new collagen-rich tissue.
Microneedling is used to treat a variety of skin conditions that cause depressions in the skin such as acne scarring, surgical scars, other scars, burns, enlarged pores, wrinkles (rhytides), and stretch marks (striae). (The procedure is less effective on deep, narrow “ice-pick” acne scars than on broader ones).
Reduces the appearance of lines and winkles, helps with any scarring, sun damage, and anti-aging. It shrinks pores, improves the effectiveness of topical products. Helps fight stretch marks, rosacea reduction and helps improve acne.
Microneedling is minimally invasive, requiring no downtime. It’s considered safe for most people who are in overall good health, not intended for women who are expecting.
One of the many advantages associated with this treatment is that patients usually see some signs of improvement within a week, with more dramatic results developing over the next three or four weeks. Your results will last anywhere from three to five months, and many patients schedule follow-up treatments twice a year to maintain their results. Taking good care of your skin through a conscientious at-home beauty routine can help preserve your results.
Although the number of sessions can vary, most people need three to six sessions for optimal results.
You should avoid any anti-inflammatory medications in the week leading up to your treatment session. Be sure you’re not on the following:
Avoid strenuous exercises that cause sweating as well as jacuzzis, saunas, and steam baths for up to 48 hours. No makeup for 24 hours and do not apply any products that create exfoliation to the skin.
Skin damage is a risk that commonly occurs with microneedling devices. The damage may include bleeding, bruising, redness, tightness, itching and peeling, and these typically go away without any treatment after a few days or weeks.
Microneedling works by creating small punctures in the skin. While it is not overly painful, it can be uncomfortable if performed incorrectly. When microneedling is performed by a professional with a topical anesthetic to numb the skin, you will find the treatment to be comfortable. The wounds made by the sharp micro needling needles are not deep, making them quick to heal.
