Micro-Needling

WHAT IS IT?

Micro-needling uses a medical device containing ultra fine needles that are used to create microchannels in the skin and stimulate the body’s natural production of skin support structures, like collagen and elastin, and increases circulation in the treated area. The increased production of collagen and elastin improves the overall quality of the skin, softens fine lines, and improves the appearance of enlarged pores and acne scarring in these areas:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Décolleté
  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Hands
  • Legs

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

Immediately following a treatment session your skin will look more radiant and have a youthful glow to it. Micro-needling improves the skin at a cellular level, so the full results of this treatment develop gradually over the course of several weeks as the newly formed collagen develops. The results of micro-needling can continue to develop for up to six months after a treatment session.

  • Improves overall tone and texture of the skin
  • Stimulates collagen production
  • Enhances the benefits of topical skin care products  
  • Treats fine lines
  • Tightens the skin
  • Improves overall quality of the skin

WHAT TO EXPECT?

Many patients can experience improvement in the quality of their skin with a single micro-needling treatment. In order to achieve maximum results of micro-needling treatments, we recommend a series of three to six treatments spaced four to six weeks apart. Some patients may require more treatment sessions depending on their skin concerns, the condition being treated, and goals of treatment. During your consultation, we will review your skin type, skin concerns, and desired results, and create a customized treatment plan that best suits your needs. 

You may experience some mild, temporary redness, similar to a minor sunburn, in the treatment area immediately after your treatment session. This facial redness typically resolves on its own within two to four days of a micro-needling treatment.
