Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that uses a handheld device with tiny needles to create controlled micro-injuries on the surface of the skin. It can be customized to meet the individual needs of each patient and achieve a more youthful and radiant complexion without the risks associated with surgery or harsh chemicals.
Microneedling treatments create tiny micro-injuries that trigger the skin’s natural healing process, stimulating collagen production and promoting cell turnover. The new collagen and elastin fibers that are produced help to improve the skin’s texture and firmness, while reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars. The treatment can be customized to target specific areas of concern and can be performed on the face, neck, hands, and other parts of the body.
Microneedling is generally well-tolerated, but some patients may experience mild discomfort during the treatment. A numbing cream can be applied to the skin prior to the procedure to minimize any discomfort.
The number of treatments needed can vary depending on the patient’s individual skin concerns and goals. Typically, a series of 3-6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart is recommended for optimal results.
Most patients experience some redness and mild swelling for a few days following the procedure, but there is generally little to no downtime. Patients can usually resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment.
Microneedling is a safe and minimally invasive treatment, but there are some potential side effects, such as redness, swelling, and mild bruising.
Microneedling can be combined with other treatments, such as chemical peels or laser therapy, to achieve even more dramatic results. Our clinician will provide you with options during your consultation.
