During the microneedling procedure, tiny needles create controlled micro-injuries to the skin which triggers the natural production of collagen and elastin with minimal epidermal damage. Each treatment is administered using an individually packaged needle cartridge that features a patented silicone sleeve which prevents cross-contamination of the pen, ensuring the highest safety for both the user and you. The procedure creates superficial micro-channels which allow better absorption of topical gels, creams and serums.
30-45 minutes before your treatment, your technician will apply an anesthetic cream to your face for maximum comfort during the procedure. A typical treatment itself takes 15-30 minutes.
What to Consider
Immediately after your treatment, your skin will be very red, which may last up to 4 days. However, some patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours. You will notice an immediate “glow” to your skin and visible changes will occur over the course of several days and weeks. Collagen production will continue for up to six months after the treatment.
We recommend a series of 4 micro needling treatments, each spaced about 4 weeks apart. Some patients may require less treatments while those with deep wrinkles or acne scars may need more treatments.
How to Prepare
To get the most out of your Microneedling treatments, you should:
- Take off all make-up and remove any skin products from your face before your procedure
- Avoid sun exposure for a couple of days after treatment and wear sunscreen if necessary
- Do not apply skin products that contain preservatives or chemicals for 48 hours
