Microneedling is a treatment that creates microchannels to the skin which promotes your skin to create new collagen and elastin.
Collagen and elastin are the essential protein fibers in the skin that give it support and elasticity. As we age, these fibers break down and can cause wrinkles. Regenerating the collagen and elastin in the skin can help give you a more youthful appearance. Microneedling helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, scarring, pore size and hyperpigmentation.
What does Microneedling help with ?
- Scars (acne and sugrical)
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Enlarged Pores
- Uneven Skin texture
What Can I Expect during my Treatment?
A numbing cream is applied to the treatment area to ensure maximum comfort. Our aesthetician then uses the SkinPen device to create millions of controlled microchannels in the skin to elicit your body's natural wound healing cascade. This causes the body to produce new collagen and elastin to heal the treated area.
What does Recovery look like?
Following your treatment, your skin may appear pink and flushed, similar to a mild sunburn. Redness typically subsides the next day but some patients make experience redness for 2-3 days. You may have slight swelling and your skin will feel tight. Do not workout for 24 hours, use a sauna or hot tub and avoid sun exposure. Avoid exfoliants, AHAs/BHAS for 5 days. Downtime for this treatment is 3-5 days.
