WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?

Microneedling is an advanced process that can be used to enhance and stimulate collagen growth in facial skin, which ultimately can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars and damage scars, and other facial blemishes. 

In order to reap the benefits of increased collagen production, microneedling is a process that goes over the top layer of your skin and produces a large number of very small holes that trigger the skin to engage the healing process and increase restoration and collagen production. The instruments that perform the task are highly technical and specific for this procedure to ensure a therapeutic process, and one in which the skin is not harmed in any way. 

 
 
 

WHO IS THE IDEAL MICRONEEDLING CANDIDATE?

Microneedling is a procedure that can have many restorative properties, and for some it can be the best course of action when looking to rejuvenate their skin and appearance. If you have a history of healthy facial skin and tissues, as well as being free of certain skin allergies or conditions, you are likely a good candidate for microneedling treatment. To ensure that you are qualified, be clear with your doctor about all conditions or prior procedures that you have had or received. 

 
 
 

WHAT DOES THE MICRONEEDLING PROCEDURE ENTAIL?

Microneedling is an outpatient procedure that does not require any formal anesthesia or surgery, so there need not be any concerns about hospital time or time away from the things in your life. 

The procedure will be conducted by your certified microblading specialist, and is done so using a highly-technical tool that traces the surface of your face, or specific treatment area, producing a number of extremely small holes that trigger a healing and restorative response from your skin. In turn, your skin begins to produce new collagen for the affected area which gives your skin a new and healthy glow.

The procedure is not excessively long, and can take up to two hours, depending on the size of your treatment area.

 
 
 

WHAT IS THE MICRONEEDLING RECOVERY PERIOD?

As previously mentioned, the procedure is not highly invasive and will not require an intense recovery period, or time away from your daily life. The effects of the procedure are usually very minor, resulting in skin redness and sensitivity, much like that of a sunburn. Your doctor can and will provide you with all of the necessary ointments to maximize your comfort and aid in the healing process. 

 
 
 

MICRONEEDLING RESULTS:

Your skin will recover and heal rather quickly, but the effects and benefits of the procedure will become increasingly more noticeable over the course of time. Collagen production is a gradual process, so follow-up procedures can be helpful and necessary, depending on your condition and the amount of treatment that is needed to bring about your desired results.
