microneedling

Collagen and elastin are two of the key players in keeping our skin supple, supportive and youthful in appearance. After age 25 our bodies starts to naturally degrade collagen which is why (coupled with sun, chemical and exposure damage) our skin starts to show “signs of aging”.

Microneedling is a collagen induction therapy, meaning it stimulates the growth of new collagen under the skin which can restore that natural youthful appearance to your skin.

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is the insertion of very fine short, sterilized needles into the skin for rejuvenation. When the skin feels these pinpricks, your body will naturally rush to heal them, resulting in a plumped, more youthful appearance. Microneedling can reduce scars, treat hyper/hypo pigmentation, reduce pore size and provide an overall better skin tone and texture.

What does it feel like?

The acupuncturist will use a topical cream prior to the microneedling to numb the area. There is a little discomfort after that – some compare it to the feeling of sandpaper across the skin.

What can I expect post-procedure?

The skin will be red and flushed, similar to a mild to moderate sunburn, for 12 hours to 3 days.* You may also experience mild swelling, tightness, and/or mild peeling. Side effects are temporary and typically resolve within 3 days. Total healing time depends on the depth of the treatment, skin type, and skin condition. We end our treatment with Celluma LED light therapy to help calm inflammation and further promote collagen building. The practitioner will provide post-treatment care instructions so you can get the most out of your session.

When will I see results?

Patients typically notice an immediate glow, but visible improvement will take about 2 to 4 weeks. Full benefits can be reached with additional treatments. Typically we recommend 4 to 6 treatments, one month apart, for ultimate results.

How long do the results last?

Results typically last about 1 year for most patients, but some say up to 5 years. This can vary depending on the skin type, skin condition, and other health factors. Maintenance treatments are recommended for best and continued results.
