Micro Needling FAQs
What is Micro Needling?
Medical micro needling of skin also referred to as collagen induction therapy, is a relatively new concept aimed at stimulating the body’s own collagen and elastin production to tighten, lift and rejuvenate the skin, as well as reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, minimize pores, stretch marks, and scars.
Micro needling treatment uses a handheld pen to create controlled depth micro-injuries to the skin. The micro-channels created by the procedure allow for optimal absorption of topical products, enhancing their effects in the skin’s deeper layers. This stimulates the skin’s natural repair process to produce collagen and elastin reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, traumatic scars, and stretch marks.
What does the procedure entail?
Numbing cream will be applied to the face for 30 minutes to reduce discomfort then it will be washed off prior to the procedure. The micro needling tool glided over the face several times followed by the immediate application of an anti-aging serum/hyaluronic acid topically. The micro-channels created by micro needling provide direct pathways to the deeper layers of the skin for optimal wound healing. We continue this procedure until the whole face/area is treated.
What does micro needling feels like?
Micro needling feels similar to sandpaper being moved across the skin.
What can I expect after a Micro Needling procedure?
The skin will be red and flushed, similar to mild sunburn, which can last for 12 hours to 3 days. You may also experience mild swelling, tightness, and/or slight peeling. Total healing time depends on the depth of the treatment, skin type, and skin condition.
